[Marnie and Jenny are watching "Stab 7".]

Jenny Randall:
O my God, I love it. I've seen it five times and still gets me every time.

Marnie Cooper:
You're kidding. I don't get it

[Jenny turns off the TV.]

Jenny Randall:
Okay, It's like "The Twilight Zone"

Marnie Cooper:
Twilight Zone.

Jenny Randall:
A movie within a movie.

Marnie Cooper:
I get that, but it's illogical. It begs the question: That if the beginning of "Stab 7", is "Stab 6". Then if the beginning of "Stab 6", is "Stab 5". And if so, What is "Stab 4" about?

Jenny Randall:
Your over-thinking it.

Marnie Cooper:
Am I, or did whoever make it just underthink it?. That's the reason I don't watch these movies.

Jenny Randall:
I can't believe you haven't seen them. We live in Woodsboro

Marnie Cooper:
That has nothing to do with Woodsboro. I-I thought you said "Stab" was based on true stories.

Jenny Randall:
The first three, The original trilogy is based off of Sidney Prescott, but then she threatened to sue them if they used her stories. So they just started making stuff up. Stab 5 has time travel, which is by far the worst

Marnie Cooper:
Don't we hear enough of this story every year?

Jenny Randall:
At least Woodsboro's known for something.

[Jenny hears a noise from upstairs.]

Jenny Randall:
Did you hear that?

Marnie Cooper:
Uh... No, I didn't hear anything

Jenny Randall:
I did.

[Jenny stands up ad goes to investigate outside.; Marnie realized this.]

Marnie Cooper:
Jenny, don't try to scare me.

Jenny Randall:
I'm not trying to scare you.

Marnie Cooper:
You do it all the time.

[Marnie begins following her.]

Jenny Randall:
No, I don't.

[Marnie stops.]

Marnie Cooper:
Where are you going?

Jenny Randall:
I told you, I heard something.

[Jenny goes upstairs.]

Marnie Cooper:
I know you're trying to scare me.

Jenny Randall:
I'm not.

[Jenny starts looking everywhere in the hallway.]

Marnie Cooper:
What is it?

[Jenny turns on the lights in her room.]

Jenny Randall:
I must have left a window in my room open.

[The phone rings.]

Jenny Randall:
Could you get that?... Marnie?

Marnie Cooper:
Yeah.

[Marnie goes to the kitchen and answers the phone.]

Marnie Cooper:
Hello?

Ghostface App:
Hello, Who's this?

Marnie Cooper:
Marnie, who's this?

Ghostface App:
This is the last person you're ever gonna see alive.

[Marnie feels disturbed.]

Marnie Cooper:
What?

[Jenny laughs that she pranked her.]

Jenny Randall:
[laughing] I'm sorry I had to.

Marnie Cooper:
You bitch! So not funny!

[Jenny closes the window.]

Jenny Randall:
Somebody falls for it every year.

Marnie Cooper:
I don't see why you get off under the---

[Marnie gets killed.; The phone hangs up.]

Jenny Randall:
Marnie?

[Jenny goes out of the hallway.]

Jenny Randall:
Marnie?

[Jenny checks downstairs.]

Jenny Randall:
Marnie?

[Jenny goes downstairs and sees the phone on the floor.]

Jenny Randall:
Good one, Marnie! Lights out, phone on the floor. You know,... [picks up the phone and tries to look around the house.] You really should direct horror films. Wherever you are. Let me guess, you want me to walk by an open door frame so you can pop out, huh? [turns around but no one is there.]

[The phone rings.]

Jenny Randall:
Okay, timing. Timing is perfect! But you don't have an app on your phone, so you can't talk like ghostface, [puts the phone in her ear] Can you?

The Voice:
Yes, I can.

[Jenny's eyes widen.]

Jenny Randall:
[disturbed.] Who is this?

The Voice:
Not an app.

Jenny Randall:
[disturbed.] Is this Trevor?

The Voice:
Do I sound like a Trevor to you? Think of me as your director. You're in my movie, you got a fun part so don't blow it.

Jenny Randall:
What movie?

The Voice:
Same one Marnie's in, only her scene got cut way back. But you? You're the dumb blonde with the big tits, we'll have some fun with you before you die.

Jenny Randall:
I have a 4.0 GPA and 135 IQ, asshole! What did you do with Marnie?

The Voice:
She's on the cutting room floor!

Jenny Randall:
That's not funny!

The Voice:
This isn't a comedy, it's a horror film. People live and people die, and you'd better start running!

[Marnie's lifeless body was thrown through the window. Jenny stumbles Marnie's dead body.]

Jenny Randall:
Marnie?

[The killer appears and begins chasing Jenny around the house.]

[Jill's phone rings.; Kirby picks up the phone.]

Kirby Reed:
It's Trevor. I'll handle this.

Jill Roberts:
[on the phone to Olivia.] Trevor's calling.

[Kirby answers it.]

Kirby Reed:
What do you want?

The Voice:
I want to talk to Jill.

Kirby Reed:
Uh... no It's Kirby. Sorry Trevor, Jill is screening her calls from all past relationships.

[While Olivia begins wearing her shirt.]

Olivia Morris:
What's going on over there?

Jill Roberts:
[to Olivia.] Olivia hang on a second. [turns to Kirby.] What is he saying?

The Voice:
I'm not Trevor.

Kirby Reed:
What? I can barely hear you Trevor.

The Voice:
This isn't Trevor.

Kirby Reed:
Oh-oh alright then why do you have his phone? Whoever this is [smiling turns to Jill.] He's trying to do ghostface. [Kirby laughs.]

Jill Roberts:
He's being weird

The Voice:
I want to talk to Jill.

Kirby Reed:
Okay well she doesn't want to talk to you. Come on Mr. Ghostface whisper to me or you just suppose to ask me a question?

The Voice:
Alright. How's the movie?

Kirby Reed:
What movie?

The Voice:
Shawn of the dead?

[Kirby looks at the TV Shawn of the dead is on]

Kirby Reed:
How did you know that?

The Voice:
Because I'm standing in the closet.

Kirby Reed:
Stop you're not.

Jill Roberts:
What is going on?

Kirby Reed:
Trevor's being weird. I mean if it is him, I don't know.

Jill Roberts:
What?

The Voice:
This is not f***ing Trevor!

Kirby Reed:
Well then who the f*** are you?

The Voice:
Open the closet door.

[Kirby looks at the closet.]:

Kirby Reed:
You do know there are cops all over the house.

The Voice:
I think I have just enough time to slice someone open!

Jill Roberts:
I'll talk to him.

Kirby Reed:
Shh.

[While Olivia was checking at Jill's house.]

Olivia Morris:
What's going on over there, you guys?

[Jill puts her phone on her ear.]

Jill Roberts:
S-Sorry I? I don't know? [turns to Kirby.] Kirby.

Kirby Reed:
Shh.

Jill Roberts:
Kirby.

The Voice:
Come on do it.

Kirby Reed:
There's no way you're in there

[Kirby stumbles to the closet.]

The Voice:
See for yourself.

[Kirby stumbles further to the closet.]

Jill Roberts:
Kirby? Kirby, come on talk to me this isn't funny. Kirby!

[Kirby opens the closet and investigate, but no one is in there.; She puts her phone on the killer.]

Kirby Reed:
Liar, I'm over this!

The Voice:
I never said I was in your closet.

Jill Roberts:
What?

[Kirby's eyes widen.; The killer breaks through Olivia's closet and begins attacking her.]

Sidney Prescott:
This... you film your entire high school experience and what, post it on the 'net?

Robbie Mercer:
Everybody will be doing it some day.

Charlie Walker:
It's kind of the one component the killer is missing.

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Wait, what do you mean?

Charlie Walker:
Well, if you wanna be the new, new version, the killer should be filming the murders.

Robbie Mercer:
Yeah, it's like the natural next step in the psycho-slasher innovation. I mean you film them all real-time and before you get caught, you upload them into cyberspace.

Charlie Walker:
Making your art as immortal as you.

Charlie Walker:
[speaking the same time as Robbie] Not to implicate him.

Robbie Mercer:
[speaking same time as Charlie] Not to implicate me.

Sidney Prescott:
So who do you think is doing the murders.

Charlie Walker:
Well, it's a Stab fanatic clearly. Working on less of a Shrequel and more of a Screamake.

Robbie Mercer:
Copyright terms, by the way.

Charlie Walker:
Cause all there are now are remakes. Only horror studios green-light. I mean, there are still rules, but the rules have changed. The unexpected is the new cliche.

Robbie Mercer:
Yeah, you gotta have an opening sequence, that blows the doors off, gallop some music video direction and the kill's gotta be way more extreme.

Charlie Walker:
Modern audiences get sappy to the rules of the original. So, the reverse has become the new standard. In fact, the only sure-fire way to survive a modern horror movie, you pretty much gotta be gay.

[pause]

Gale Weathers-Riley:
So, why are you so sure that the killer is working by the rules of a horror remake?

Robbie Mercer:
Well, the original Stab structure is pretty apparent.

Charlie Walker:
Yeah, two kids killed in a house when their parents are away?

Robbie Mercer:
And, then the school's 'hot chick' savage beyond recognition.

Charlie Walker:
We all know where it goes from there...?

Sidney Prescott:
A party.

Charlie Walker:
Exactly. A party. Guaranteed third-act-main-cast bloodbath.

Robbie Mercer:
Fingers crossed on some nudity for a change.

[Kirby's phone rings.]

Kirby Reed:
[checks on her phone.] It's Charlie's phone.

[Kirby unlocks her phone.]

The Voice:
Tell Sidney hits the rule tonight! Tell Sidney it's all because of her! or maybe she was into his place. I promise to be quick!

Kirby Reed:
[turns to Sidney] It's him.

Sidney Prescott:
Okay Kirby. I'm gonna get Jill. Wish me in the same place. Just keep him on the phone. I-I'll be right back okay?

[Sidney leaves.; Kirby turns to Charlie.]

Kirby Reed:
Let him go please.

The Voice:
I hear you like horror movies, Kirby. But do you like them as much as him? Forget watching Stab, instead you get to live it.

Kirby Reed:
No. No, no, no, no. He's the expert. It's not me.

The Voice:
Warm up question: Jason's weapon?

Kirby Reed:
Uh,it's a machete.

The Voice:
There. You see? You do know the genre. Michael Myers?

Kirby Reed:
Uh, butcher knife.

The Voice:
Leatherface?

Kirby Reed:
[crying] Chainsaw! Please!

The Voice:
Just ask Sidney if you need some help. Freddy Krueger?

Kirby Reed:
Razor-hands.

The Voice:
Name the movie that started the slasher craze: Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Last House on the Left or Psycho?

Kirby Reed:
Psycho.

The Voice:
None of the above! Peeping Tom, 1960, directed by Michael Powell. First movie to ever put the audience in the killer's POV.

Kirby Reed:
Wait. No, no, no. Please, just ask me one more question. Just one more.

The Voice:
Alright, Kirby, then it's time for your last chance. Name the remake of the groundbreaking horror movie in which the vill...---

Kirby Reed:
[panicked.] Halloween, uh, Texas Chainsaw, Dawn of the Dead, The Hills Have E-e-eyes, Amityville Horror, Uh-uh, Last House on the Left, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare On Elm Street, My Bloody Valentine, When A Stranger Calls, Prom Night, Black Christmas, House of Wax, The Fog, Piranha. It's one of those, right? Right?!

[The killer hangs up the call. Everything is silent.]

Kirby Reed:
[relieved] I got it right. I was f***ing right!

[After Jill knocks Dewey unconscious, She gets his gun and goes to Sidney.]

Jill Roberts:
Is this how it's gonna be Sid? The ending of the movie was suppose to be at the house! I mean this is just... [say the final word through clenched teeth] silly!

Sidney Prescott:
Consider this an alternative ending...you're never gonna get away with this Jill.

Jill Roberts:
Of course I will!-

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Dewey!

[Gale enters Sidney's room and sees this.; Jill aims her gun at Gale.; Sidney faints.]

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Sid. [turns to Jill.] Easy... Okay, okay... What about the book?

Jill Roberts:
Looks like I'll just have to write it myself.

[Judy appears and saves Gale through the hospital bed.; Jill shoots, but misses.]

Jill Roberts:
God damn it!

[Gale and Judy hide under the bed.]

Jill Roberts:
Don't even think about shooting [aims the gun at Dewey.] Or I'll blow Dewey's head off.

[Gale and Judy's eyes widen in shock and turn to each other.]

Jill Roberts:
What, you think I wont do it?! Give me your gun!

Gale Weathers-Riley:
[to Judy] Do it.

[Judy slowly rises.; Sidney gets up and sees this.; Judy slowly raises her hands.]

Jill Roberts:
Just had to be the hero, huh? [aims the gun at Judy.] Give me your gun.

[Judy doesn't respond.]

Jill Roberts:
What are you, deaf?! Give me. Your gun!

[Judy tosses the gun to Jill, as she kicks it away.; Sidney reaches the defibrilator.]

Jill Roberts:
Now get up...

[Judy gets up.]

Jill Roberts:
...and keep your hands over your head.

Deputy Judy Hicks:
Don't do anything stu---

[Jill shoots Judy in the chest.]

Jill Roberts:
Don't f***ing tell me what to do.

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Oh God...

[Jill aims the gun at Gale.]

Jill Roberts:
Now get up, bitch.

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Okay.

Jill Roberts:
Get up!

[Gale looks at Jill.]

Jill Roberts:
Now!

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Okay.

[Gale slowly gets up and checks at Sidney.]

Jill Roberts:
Come on.

[Gale checks at Dewey, who regains consciousness.]

Jill Roberts:
Let's go. Get your skinny ass out here.

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Okay.

[Sidney turns on the defibrilator.]

Jill Roberts:
I'm gonna enjoy blowing your head off.

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Okay, but... Can I just have one final word?

Jill Roberts:
What? "Please?"

[Sidney grabs two defibrilator pads.]

Gale Weathers-Riley:
No...

[The defibrilator charges to 360 joules.]

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Clear.

Jill Roberts:
Clear?

[Sidney appears behind Jill, with two defibrillator pads.]

Sidney Prescott:
Clear.

[Sidney electrocutes Jill, with two defibrillator pads, until she collapses on the floor.]

Sidney Prescott:
You forgot the first rule of remakes, Jill: "Don't f*** with the originals".

[Gale goes to Dewey.]

Gale Weathers-Riley:
Oh my god Dewey.

[Sidney puts back the defibrilator.]

Sheriff Dewey Riley:
What did I get hit with?

[Sidney goes to Dewey.]

Sidney Prescott:
Don't ask.

Gale Weathers-Riley:
[turns to Sidney] Are you okay?

[Sidney nods.]
