Dead Mary

Synopsis: Kim and her boyfriend Matt have just broken up, but they travel together to a cottage nearby a lake to spend the weekend with their friends Eve, Dash and his wife Amber and Baker and his new girlfriend Lily. The atmosphere becomes heavy with the situation between Kim and Matt, and one of them suggests them to play "Dead Mary". Matt, Eve and Dash summon the evil witch repeating her name three times in front of a mirror with a candle. Along the night, Matt hears weird noises, is killed and returns to life, while part of the group is possessed by the fiend. Without knowing who is possessed, the rest of the group fights to survive.

What took so long?

-I'm sorry?

-It wasn't that far back.

Yeah? Well, I had to look around a bit.

-What for?

-Nobody was there.

-What do you mean, nobody was there?

-I don't know. Just like I said.

So, you just filled them up and took off?

I left money on the counter.



It must be back at my place.

Well, I guess I won't be seeing that again.

Son of a b*tch.

-Give it up.

-Hey, they're making them smaller, I swear.

-Making what smaller?

-His balls.



-I'm serious.

-Since when do you golf?

I'll have you know,

it is a very good tension-reliever.

Be careful with them.

Those belong to Ted's uncle, I think.

What am I gonna do, bend the shafts?

Four-letter word for ''exclude.''

Second letter is ''M.''

-What are you doing with those?

-Qh, the fridge is full.


Qkay, baby, this is the one.

Qh! Damn it!

-Shoot. Locked.

-Qh, man. Teddy, there's no key.

-Look over the door.

-It's not up here.

It used to be up there.

-And it's...

-Try it again. Qh.

-Throw the beers in the lake?

-Yeah, okay.


-Hey, Lily.




-Can I talk to you for a minute?

-Sure, babe.


Yeah, I'll be right in.


I don't know.



-What are we gonna tell them?

-Tell them whatever you want.

-Well, what are you going to tell them?

-As little as possible.

-Hey, guys.

-Qh, hey!

-Hey, you.


So, have you heard from Ted?

-He's not here?

-No. Shocking, isn't it?

-You the first one up again?

-You know me.

Well, come on, lovely.

Let's get this weekend started.

-Qh, Kim?


You want to take your bags up with you?

-Well, can't you take them all in?

-Well, it'd be easier if you took yours.

What's the matter?

Don't want to break a nail?

No, I just gotta take the gas can

down to the boat.

Darling, they sold that boat.

Well, whatever. Look, you don't have to.

It's fine.

Geez, give me one, too, why don't you?

Thanks, Evie.

I was joking.

I mean, you know you personally

have f***ed the whole weekend, right?

-What do you mean?

-You know what he means.

No, no, no, please, enlighten me here.

Tell me.

No. No. Whatever. Whatever.

I mean, like, you couldn't have...

You know what?

You couldn't have waited?

-You couldn't wait to break up with her.

-What was I supposed to be waiting for?

F***ing Monday?

Qh, and I'm fine, by the way, guys.

Thanks for asking.

So, what? So, what?

So, we're supposed to actually just, like,

walk around on eggshells

while you two are all, like,

tense with each other?




-Yeah, again.

-New Year's Eve, three years ago, buddy.

-That was three years ago?


-That was brutal.

Penultimate worst.

-That was the penultimate worst?

-Yes, it was.

-You don't wanna say ''penultimate.''

-Yeah, I do.

-You wanna say ''ultimate.''

-No, I wanna say ''penultimate.''

''Penultimate'' means second-to-last.

Yeah, but that was the last time

we all got together.

That's not the same thing.

So, what, you're saying I should have

discussed it with you guys first?

You know what, Matt? We're trying

to come up here and have a nice weekend,

and now this.

Was it definite?

-It just slipped out.


Excuse me? How...

How does that just slip out?

I don't know.

Well, what?

What, did she beat it out of you?

Yeah, I think she beat it out of him.

Nobody beat it out of me. I just said it.



So, what? What... I mean, what did she say?

I mean, was she surprised? I mean, was she,

like, totally, totally, completely shocked?

-''Was she, like, totally, totally, totally...''

-Dash... Yo.

You know what, guys? I really

don't want to discuss it anymore. All right?

Drama of the week.

I thought you guys were doing

the whole open thing.

Qh, f***, D, listen,

I don't want to talk about it anymore.

I don't know anyone who would agree

to do the whole open thing.

We're supposed to tell each other

if there's someone else.

Really? And that's supposed

to make things better?

I think it's respectful.

More respectful is just not saying anything.

Ignorance is bliss, right?

So, what, he didn't tell you anything?

Which could mean that there's nobody.

Qr that there could be somebody.

Should've got that place together

when you had the chance.


Just being honest.

Eve's still looking hot.

We can talk about that.

What have you guys been up to?


Long-distance relationships are hard.


What? What are you talking about?

You... You've been with the same girl

since you were what, like, three?

And you cheat on her constantly.

-No. Hey!

-Give me that.

Can I have that, please?

No, I don't.

-You don't?

-I don't do that anymore.

-Qh, you don't...

-What? I don't do that anymore.

-Qh, you... Qh, I'm sorry.


For the record.

Really? Because that's...

That's not what it looked like

-that time that chick was sitting down...

-No, no, no, no, no.

-No? Qh.

-No. No.

-No, because... No.



-Yes, but no, I don't...

-I'm like really trying not to do that anymore.

-Good for you.

So, you don't, but you do?

Is that your final answer?

I just think, you know,

I'm getting too old for it.

-Too old to be chasing it all the time and...

-So, let me get this straight.

Essentially, you're saying

that you're too tired to cheat on your wife?

No, what I'm saying is, it's like,

I've just traded the quality for the quantity

too many times.

Yeah, well, Dash, a lot of the people try to

figure that out before they get the ring on.

Yeah, well, I figured that one out

the hard way, then, didn't l?

And I'm making up for it now.

Like, we haven't seen each other

more than two times this year,

and all of a sudden

you're an expert on my marriage?

This conversation's killing my buzz.

Look, all I was trying to say, anyway,

is life is a f***ing series

of long-distance relationships.

You know, your family,

your friends and that...

We're all in a long-distance relationship.

-Wow, that's deep.


-That must be some good pot.

-It is some good pot.

Yeah, it's not bad.

-And anyway, what about your girlfriend?

-What about her?

She's kind of got that whole

Catholic-school-girl thingy going on.

-I was thinking the same thing.

-Yo, guys, she's having a nap. Just...

You got her all locked up in detention?

Are you gonna go back there and give her

a couple of smacks with your ruler?


-She gotta do some schoolwork

-before she comes out?


Maybe, I should go back there

and help her clean the chalkboard?


-Well, how old is she, anyways?

-Discretion, always the better part of valor.

-I'm 22, actually.

What's up?

I'm gonna go for a walk.

Qh, the girls are down swimming,

if you want, at the dock.

Qh, I just kind of feel like going for a walk.

Baker, remember that time

at Jennifer Warren's party

when you pissed on Jane Caufield, man?

-Tell her about standing on the boards...

-He doesn't know what he's talking about.

-Remember that? That was...
