DARKNESS. A low wind stirs from far away...


No cars in the driveway. A single light on in an upstairs

window. We hear A TEENAGE GIRL’S VOICE.


I wanted to talk. I felt like last

night... I don’t know. Things were

starting to get kinda weird between


EASE IN on that upstairs window...


Glimpse a sliver of A BEDROOM... because we’re looking out

from inside the bedroom closet. The slightly open closet

door keeps us from seeing more.

We stay exactly in this spot throughout...

A teen girl sits on the floor. This is DEBBIE (17). She’s

talking to someone in her room.


It was fun for a while, when we

first started playing. But... I

feel like you’ve changed.

EASE OVER SLIGHTLY... able to see a little more of Debbie.

There’s something in front of her on the floor. A GAME

BOARD. Debbie’s fingers touching a heart-shaped wooden piece

on the board.

She’s playing OUIJA with someone. But from where we are

inside the closet, we can’t see who it is.

WE DRIFT UP AWAY FROM THE BOARD now so that we’re just on

Debbie’s face.


I mean, you’re still my friend,


Debbie sits there waiting.


C’mon. Answer me.

Suddenly, Debbie’s expression shifts. Fear in her eyes.


You know what? This is our last

game. I’m not playing ever again.

I want you to leave. Just get out.


MOVEMENT. A DARK SHAPE steps past the crack in the closet.

We hear a THUD and now we are -


She sits there alone on the floor, glancing over to the wide

open bedroom door as it comes to a rest against the wall. As

if someone just left the room.

The night wind creaks outside...

Debbie gathers up the Ouija board and planchette and moves

quickly to her closet. She opens the double doors, about to

put the board away when -

--there’s a noise. SCRAPE. Debbie glances over her

shoulder. The room is still empty.

She turns back. Reaching to place the Ouija up on a shelf as

behind her -

-- there’s MOVEMENT in a mirror. Unseen by Debbie, because

she’s still reaching up to put the board away.

The wooden planchette slips and falls, landing at Debbie’s

feet. She picks it up when suddenly --

-- BAM! A loud sound in her room. Debbie spins to see that

her bedside table lamp has fallen... now slowly rolling on

the floor.

Debbie stands there totally still. Staring. Her panicked

eyes scan the room. All we hear is her BREATHING and the

WIND outside. She turns slightly... and a SHADOW falls

across her face. We don’t see what she sees -- but someone’s

standing right there.

Debbie stares. Absolutely terrified. Her lips tremble,

about to say something when -

-- she’s PUSHED HARD into her closet! It’s a blur. She

falls back into her hanging clothes. Getting twisted up in a

plastic dry cleaning bag.

VERY CLOSE on Debbie -- and right before she can scream, a

clear plastic dry cleaning bag suddenly PRESSES TIGHT AGAINST

HER FACE! A split second shock and we instantly go -


-- back into the bedroom. The closet doors, out of focus in

the background. We catch the tail end of them closing shut

with a slight creak. No sound comes from the closet. Just

the wind outside.

CHILLING MUSIC rises, taking us to -


TITLE CREDITS. A vintage turn of the century black and white

photograph of a parlor SEANCE GATHERING. People in formal

attire at a table with a OUIJA BOARD at the center. We hear

a WOMAN’S VOICE speak via a scratchy cylinder recording --
