EXT. THE FULL MOON, CLOSE NIGHT
It nearly fills the screen, swimming mysteriously in the
warm late summer air.
THE CAMERA PANS SLOWLY DOWN TO:
EXT. TRAIN TRACKS IN THE COUNTRY NIGHT - AND MOONLIGHT
A rail-rider comes chugging along the tracks. Aboard is
ARNIE WESTRUM, a big man in a strappy T-shirt and chino
pants. He is drinking beer.
My beer is Rheingold the dry beer...
Think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer...
He drains the rest of his own bottle of Rheingold and tosses
it to one side. Up ahead we see a switching point.
ARNIE throws the rail-rider into neutral, opens the toolbox
on the back, and brings out a big five-cell flashlight. He
shines it on the switch.
He gets a crowbar from the toolbox, plus a big wrench, a
pair of pliers, a hammer, and a pair of work gloves. He also
gets another bottle of beer and sticks it into his back
ARNIE jumps down and approaches the switch.
EXT. ARNIE, AT THE SWITCHING POINT NIGHT
He drops his tools, pulls on his work gloves, and trains the
light on the switch for a moment. During this:
It's not bitter, not sweet, it's a real
frosty treat, won't you try, won't you
buy Rheingold beer...
He tries the switch. No go. It's frozen.
Stuck tighter'n dogshit in a deep freeze!
He takes the bottle of beer from his back pocket and fishes
a churchkey from one of the front ones. He pops the cap and
drinks deeply. He burps. Then he screws the half-empty
bottle of beer into the cinders so it won't fall over. Then
he picks up his crowbar.
EXT. THE RAIL-RIDER NIGHT
There's a SOUND of bushes shaking. Something comes out -
something huge. It leaps limberly onto the rail-rider. It is
a werewolf with greenish-yellow eyes. Tatters of clothes
still hang from it.
What kind of monster, exactly? It is humanoid as well as
wolfish... and when we learn who it is in its human form, we
should be able to spot the resemblance at once...and kick
ourselves for not knowing earlier.
It crouches there, huge and bushy and fanged and deadly, on
the whole rail-rider.
EXT. ARNIE NIGHT
He's working the crowbar into the junction point just as
hard as he can. Swearing at it under his breath. Suddenly,
both the tracks and the switch move.
Hot damn! Now... a little oil...
He turns back toward the rail-rider.
EXT. ARNIE, ARRIVING AT THE RAIL-RIDER NIGHT
It's not bitter, not sweet... it's
a big f***in' treat...
A NOISE - bushes rattling; cinders clinking and rattling.
ARNIE looks around.
EXT. THE RAILS AND THE SWITCHING POINT, ARNIE'S POV NIGHT
Nothing there. His bottle of beer stands by the litter of
EXT. ARNIE, AT THE RAIL-RIDER NIGHT
He's rooting around in the toolbox, back to the switching
EXT. ARNIE'S BOTTLE OF BEER, CU NIGHT
A hairy hand/paw closes around it - we see huge curved claws
on that hand.
EXT. THE WEREWOLF'S FACE, CU NIGHT
Glaring green-yellow eyes; a savage, beastial face which is
still half human. That's all we see. The rest is in shadow.
It opens its mouth and upends the bottle of beer. Foamy
Rheingold begins gurgling down the werewolf's throat.
EXT. ARNIE AT THE RAIL-RIDER NIGHT
He comes up with an old-fashioned oilcan, the kind with the
long spout. He starts back to the switching point, waving
My beer is Rheingold the dry beer...
Think of Rheingold whenever you fry beer...
He arrives, looks down... and stops singing. His eyes widen.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
