JlLL:
Hello?

Robert, I don't think

this is very funny.

Bobby?

Who is this?

(TELEPHONE CUTS OFF)

HOST:
As you watch the screen,

your heart begins

to beat faster.

There's a fluttering in

the pit of your stomach.

Your throat is dry.

Your palms damp.

Suddenly, a chill

runs down your spine.

You clutch the

person next to you.

You tell yourself,

"lt's only a movie."

lt's only a movie.

But sooner or later,

it's time to go home.

(GlRL GlGGLlNG)

(DOOR CREAKlNG)

Hello?

Who's there?

(SCREAMlNG)

HOST:
There's no

question about it.

Some terror films go too far.

LAURlE:
Tommy, unlock the door.

HOST:
But so do the audiences.

LAURlE:
l want you

to go down the

stairs and out the front door.

I want you to go down the street

to the MacKensie's house...

First they start

grabbing each other,

which is all very well,

if you have a date.

I want you to tell them

to call the police. Hey!

And before long...

Now, do you understand me?

No. No, baby, no, no. No!

People are yelling at the

characters on the screen.

MAN:
Hey, watch out, baby!

WOMAN:
Watch out!

Please stop.

Do something!

(AUDlENCE EXCLAlMlNG)

(WOMAN SCREAMlNG)

Get him!

(AUDlENCE EXCLAlMlNG)

(AUDlENCE CHEERlNG)

MAN:
Don't drop theknife, you asshole!

MAN:
Hey, get out of that room!

LAURlE:
Babies.

HOSTESS:
lt's strange,

isn't it?

In real life, nobody

likes to think

about violence, pain,

blood and death.

But project these

experiences on a screen,

and people form lines

in the street.

That's because a terror film is a

lot like a roller coaster ride.

Only, you're sitting in a theater,

which is relatively safe.

Did you see that?

Yes.

(SCREAMlNG)

(GROANlNG AND GURGLlNG)

(CHlLDREN SCREAMlNG

AND PANlCKlNG)

HOST:
Maybe, deep down, we

have a need to be scared.

Why else do we go

to these movies?

Perhaps we're taking a dare,

proving to ourselves

that we're not afraid.

Go ahead, Lonnie.

Chicken.

Go in!

Hey!

Hey, Lonnie,

get your ass away from there.

HOST:
Besides, there's something

delicious about fear.

Especially somebody else's.

(GRUNTS lN SURPRlSE)

(THUNDER CLAPPlNG)

(BELL TlNKLlNG)

HOST:
Scary movies tap

into your childhood fears

of the dark,

and of being alone.

(GASPS)

(MUFFLED SCREAMlNG)

HOSTESS:
Young or old,

we go to the movies

to see our dreams and

fantasies come to life.

But not all of our fantasies

are wholesome and dignified.

HOST:
ln the privacy

of our thoughts,

we can be as

childish as we like.

And the little

scenarios of power

and revenge we conjure up,

can be quite satisfying.

Creepy Carrie!

Creepy Carrie!

(LAUGHlNG)

(GROANS)

HOST:
Resorting to violence

to get back at someone

might not be your cup of tea.

Will you look at that

fellow over there?

I mean, l have never seen anything

so disgusting in all my life.

HOST:
But l'll bet you've thought about it.

He's staring.

I think he's looking at us.

I think we're being picked up.

It's too awful.

Can you believe it?

On how they can let creatures

like that in here.

I mean, really...

Anne, what's

the matter? Anne?

Help, someone, please!

Please help!

HOST:
We all carry around a certain

amount of resentment and rage

because we can't let it out.

In the movies, we can.

(DlSTORTED CARNlVAL

MUSlC PLAYlNG)

(CHlLDREN SCREAMlNG)

(MAN YELLlNG)

The question is, why

make up horrible things

when there is so much

real terror in the world?

Perhaps we invent

artificial horrors

to help us cope

with the real ones.

HOST:
ln 1 974, a

picture came out

that was inspired

by a true story.

(CLUCKlNG)
