- Forty-five!



- Shit, look at him go!

So here I am...

playing ball, getting by,

hottest girl in school.

It's great, right?

That's life, sewn up and tied.

Like how much of an idiot do you have to be

To think that it will always

be that way?

- It's like a dream, right?

- To think that you'll never have

to learn from there

or go through hell,

because you will.

But anyway...

- Hike!

- What was that?

- Richards, clean yourself up.

- Watch yourself, man.

Next time, 15 yards.

- Come on, I slipped.

- Yeah, yeah, let's go.

Let's go!

- Hey, Brad, slip again.

- Richards!

You like that? Huh?

Oh, I know you like that.

Look at that.

Look at your boy!

- What is it, Mom? What's wrong?

- Shh! Can't you hear it?

- Yeah. I hear.

It's just an animal.

- No, I feel it.

It's in the house.

- No!

- It's alright, baby.

It's me. It's Mom.

Oh, you're okay.

Shh... You're okay.

You're okay...

- Mom, my head hurts so bad.


Cayden Richards...

You've maintained a 3.8 GPA

since the ninth grade.

And suddenly, last semester, 3.4.

Missed classes, declining attitude.

And now, assault.

It's not like you, Richards.

- No, sir.

- Look, son...

your life is created

by the paths you choose as a kid.

To be frank, it's an effed up system.

But there it is.

So tell me, what's the problem?

- I think I'm losing my mind.

- Of course you're not.

You're just young.

And life is complicated.

I mean, senior year

and everything's changing.

I'm scared, too.

Of college, the future,

leaving home...

Leaving me...

Is that what you're afraid of?

- Oh... Jesus...

my head is killing me.

- Cayden...

- Lisa, are you sure?

- Yeah.


- Don't stop.

- Oh, my God!



Mom? Dad?

Mom! Dad!



Whoa. Whoa.

This is 1555.

We have a 17-year-old girl

reporting an assault by her boyfriend.

Seeing signs of violence...

Excuse me, ma'am, sit in the car, please.

- Cayden... It was Cayden.

- Miss?

- He's a monster.


...my parents' murder was big news.

- Cayden did describe dreams

of killing his parents,

of ripping them apart with his teeth.

And the evidence pointed

in just one direction.

- You can read all about his case

in my new book,

"The Danger of Boys",

out this fall.

So I ran.

The police put up a manhunt

but I could smell them coming every time.

As far as a cure went,

all the books agreed there was only one:


But to my great shame,

I couldn't bring myself to do it.

The rest was just a load of bullshit.

About silver, wolfsbane, all that crap.

And it wasn't just a full moon thing.

The change was always

a heartbeat away...

Crouched, waiting.

But when the moon was full...

I could feel it...

The animal in me.

Hey, come on, man!

- Just give me a second, alright?!

I lived in constant fear

that I would kill again.

And then one day... I did.

Thanks, buddy.

Lisa, I understand

you were with Cayden

the night of the murders?

- He attacked me.

- Was Cayden angry or upset

over the fact that he was adopted, perhaps?

- What?

I didn't know he was adopted.

- He never mentioned

that he was adopted?

That... was almost funny.

Because up until that exact moment,

I hadn't known it either.

- Do you need a menu, hon?

- Just a coffee. Thanks.

Hey! Leave her alone!

- Turn around, asshole.

- Oh God, please help me!

These guys are batshit!

- Listen to me!

You hit her again...

you're gonna lose that hand.

- Run, kid.

I was trying to do right.

Trying to help out where I could.

- What is it, Robbie?!

F*ck me!

Kill it, Robbie, kill it!
