Howling IV: The Original Nightmare

Synopsis: A successful author was sent to the small town Drago because of a nervous breakdown, and gets wound up in a mysterious mystery about demons and werewolves. She starts seeing ghosts and dismisses them as her own imagination, but when they turn out to be real, she starts to get suspicious of the small town and of its past. But at the heart of this scenic, serene village is much darker than its benign appearance; and while she hopes her vacation will dispel her visions, a sinister presence has drawn her there. Soon she will discover that the ghosts that have haunted her are real and that her horrific visions are a mysterious message.

[MUSIC - "SOMETHING EVIL, SOMETHING DANGEROUS"]

-God damn it.

Excuse me, sis--

-Marie.

-Are you OK?

-Yeah.

Hi, Tom.

Good to see you.

-You know, it's not really your book I love.

It's the fact that you're the only client

who's always on time.

-Thanks a lot.

-So anyway, now, Brimley Books, they're

offering the most money upfront.

But they want the rights to this, your next book.

-Tom?

-Yes?

What?

Are you all right?

-Yeah, I'm fine.

I'm sorry.

Go ahead.

-Well, I don't know if I feel comfortable locking it

in like that.

I mean, it may very well be that Arrow

will pay much larger for drafts.

[SCREAMING]

MARIE NARRATING:
Dreams They're just dreams.

They're not real.

Just dreams.

[SCREAMING]

-Oh god.

[FOOTSTEPS]

-Richard, Richard, thank god it's you, Richard.

-It's just imagination, Doc.

It's how she writes her books.

Like she-- sees the stories in her mind or something.

-Yeah, maybe in the beginning.

This time, her imagination's gone too far.

You see, what you and your wife have

got to face up to is the enormous pressure she's

under as a best-selling author.

Do you want one?

-No, thanks.

Doc, this is kinda coming at a bad time.

For Marie.

She's got a deadline coming up on her new book,

and it's-- it's kind of important to her.

-No, no, no.

That's not important.

What is important is her state of mind.

Her health should be your concern.

-It is my concern.

I just meant-- look, what do you suggest that we do, huh?

I mean, she can't just shut her mind off like a light.

-No.

But she could turn it down.

She needs to get away from all this excitement for a while.

She needs a rest.

And that means no work.

She needs to go somewhere where her imagination won't

be stimulated.

-All right.

All right, I'll, uh, I'll find some place.

Thanks.

-Look at this.

-Hey.

What's that?

-That is where you're driving me.

It's almost terminally quaint, isn't it?

-Oh, it looks great to me.

Where'd you find it?

-Richard found it.

Actually, I think he did it for Pierre.

Isn't that right, baby?

Ah, Tom, smell that air.

Can you believe this?

I should have done this months ago, you know it?

-It'll be good for you two to get away together.

-Yep, it's what our marriage needs at the moment.

-How long are you gonna be away for?

-Three whole weeks.

Richard's gonna be driving back and forth to LA, though.

He's up for a big design job, did I tell you?

-No.

-Ah.

He really needs this.

I hope he gets it.

He's been on such a downer lately.

This would be great for him.

-Do you need any company while he's gone?

-No way.

You'd have me trying to write all the time.

Forget about it.

-Well, I was just trying to be helpful.

-Yeah, well, you've done enough already, thank you very much.

-Mind the mousse.

-Oh, excuse me.

Sorry.

-Tom, I don't know.

It could be left, could be right.

-Now what did I do?

-I don't know.

It sure the hell wasn't speeding.

-Well, now, just where is it we're trying to get to?

-Good afternoon, officer.

We're trying to find Drago.

-Drago, huh?

-Yeah.

She and her husband are renting a cottage there.

-You staying there too?

-No.

I'm a friend giving her a ride.

-Well, friend, you head on right.

A little ways along, there's a break to the left.

Now, you take that.

But if you get to the town, you've gone too far.

-Thank you, officer.

[GIGGLING]

-Ta-da!

Hey, baby.

-Hi.

-Tom, what a surprise.

I didn't expect to see you here.

-Yeah, it was a last-minute thing.

-Marie called to say goodbye.

-Tom politely volunteered, knowing I'd say no, of course,

so I said yes.
