- No.

Well, yeah.

party at the last minute.

I mean every year, it gets f***ing worse.

It's not my fault it sucked ass.

- I'm actually surprised I

thought your kind went crazy

for Halloween.

- My kind?

- I just mean, you could help more.

You walked around with

that face all the night.

You look like you want to kill someone.

- Maybe I do.

(Man Laughs)

noise) You are so grumpy

sometimes, did ya' know that?

It's just nice to make

a little bit of effort.

- Or what, like you did?

- What the f*** are you talking about?

This is a great f***ing costume.

- (jeering laughter) Of course it is.

- Are you done?

- Maybe.

Actually, no.

- Oookay then, well,

(laughs sarcastically)

- A what?

What did you just say?

- No, I didn't mean that.

I didn't mean it like that.

I meant like a, you know,

like a spooky, spooky hooker.

- Okay, that's it, pull over.

- No, no, no, don't be stupid.

(woman jerks on door handle)

No, what you doin', no, no, no.

No, alright okay, okay,

Now, don't be stupid now.

- I'm sorry, I ruined your night.

- No, please get back in the car.

- I'm walking home.

- Well, don't be silly, it's miles away.

You look lovely, really.

(woman blows raspberry)

(suspenseful build up music)

(woman's shoes clacking on the pavement)

(building increasing music)

- Hi.

(purse hits ground with heavy thud)

Just, give me one second okay.


(bones popping and ripping)

(heaving breathing sounds)

(woman growling)

(piercing howling screech)

(heavy breathing intensifies)

- Ahhh

(monstrous woman growling and biting)

(ferocious howling shriek)

(up beat music tempo)

(screeching tires)

- Hey, lookin' all over

Feelin' better?
