Jamie Marks Is Dead

Synopsis: In a wintry small town, the body of a teenager named Jamie Marks is found by the river. Adam, the star of his cross-country team, becomes fascinated with Jamie-a boy nobody really knew or interacted with, except occasionally to bully him. When Jamie's ghost begins to appear both to Adam and Gracie, the classmate who discovered the body, Adam is caught between two worlds. He has a budding romance with Gracie, but he also feels a deep connection to Jamie, who brings him closer to the world of the undead.

Where you at, Mooney?

Mooney! Mooney!

Hey, don't drop your wad, you

get spied on in the shower.

Do it.

Just do whatever faggy shit you want

with your Cub Scout buddies,

but keep the f*ck away from us!

What's that? I can't hear you.

Don't give us that

shit, you fucking liar.

I wasn't spying.

What were you doing then?

Were you taking a dump?

'Cause that's what toilets are for, man.

It doesn't smell like

he was taking a dump.

Does it smell like he was taking a dump?

Nah, man, someone needs

to give this motherfucker

a shitting lesson, huh?

Oh, is that... is that what it is?

Mooney, you need a

lesson in potty training?

Mooney, you're in

luck 'cause I gotta go.

Oh, yeah.

Anybody else gotta go, huh?

Who the f*ck is Jamie Marks?

Jamie Marks, he was... he

was in your homeroom, right?


Did... did he have red hair?



Was Jamie Marks a boy or a girl?

It's a boy, you moron.

Jamie Marks is that kid

with the... the glasses

and the... the... the boy scouts shirt.

That's him, right?

Mooney Marks.

Told you.

Oh, you know what I heard?

I heard they found him

without his eyeballs.

I mean, like, seriously.

And he was raped.

Yes, Elizabeth.

Aren't we gonna talk

about what's happened?



Let's talk about what's happened.

Who wants to talk about Mooney Marks?

Do you, Elizabeth?

You were a good friend of his?

How did it make you feel

when you learned he was gone?

Hm? Anyone?

Should we talk about

all those fond memories

we have of Jamie?

How everyone thought

he was such a great guy?

Who knew him?







I think it's awful what's happened.

I do.

And if any of you wanna stay after class

and discuss it, please

feel free to do so.

But right now, I think we

should get back to work.

What are you doing here?


What are you doing here?

You don't have to leave.

It smells good.

So do you really collect rocks?


Rocks are the best.

He was in my homeroom.

Down there is where I found him.

He looked so scared.

You're Adam.


I know your older brother...


You should come by tomorrow...

And see my collection.

My parents will be at

marriage counseling.

How was practice?

It's all right.

I'm gonna go down to the

landing for a bit, okay?

Just for a quick drink.

I won't be late, I promise.

Have fun.

Thank you.


Don't ever put your happiness

in anyone else's hands.

You hear me?

I'll drop it.

I'll drop it every time.


Oh, my babies.

Just rest, mom.

You're okay.

They said you were gonna be okay.

I know they did, honey.


Baby, look at me.

You're gonna have to cover

my shift tomorrow night, okay?

We're gonna be fine.

You'll see.








Oh, dear.

Excuse me.




All right.



Stop calling here.

Who is it?

The crazy bitch that hit you?

She doesn't want to talk to you!


What do you think she wants?

She's a little busy right now,

considering you just ran

her over with your van.

So what took you so long?


I ran.

Come on.

Don't just stand there, come in.

How's your drink?

Did I make it too strong?

You've got quite a collection.

I... I didn't know rocks

could be so beautiful.

I know.

Sit down.

I, uh, like your shelves.


My dad made them for me.

I see graves all the time now.

Beds are kinda like graves.

What kind of funeral do you want?

Aren't they all the same?

No, they're all completely different.

In Mexico, on day of the dead,

the families go to the cemeteries
