MUSIC CUE

INTERIOR HOSPITAL ROOM AMBIENCE

WOMAN

My mom used to say that trust earned over a lifetime can be lost in the blink of an eye. She also said lost trust is a debt that might never be repaid. But sometimes what we think we see, what we eye witness, what we swear is the absolute truth is not the entire story. Memories have only two dimensions. Life has five.

Reflection 4: Head Pie

MUSIC CUE - DARK MAGIC

NARRATOR

Ray and Ashley stand alert in Polly’s bedroom. Ray adjusts the weight of the duffle bag on his shoulder. Ashley clutches a long kitchen knife. They look from each other to the bathroom door. In front of the closed door is a tiny book shelf, a toy chest and two small chairs.


ASHLEY

It was huge, Ray. Its skin was rough like a crocodile but it was sort of human shaped. It had long claws, teeth like ice pics, and its eyes. Oh my god. It had yellow snake eyes.


RAY

And this thing was coming out of the mirror?


ASHLEY

Reaching out. Clawing at me. It was predatory. Angry.


RAY

And this is your barricade? Ya know, for someone that builds things for a living, I'm not impressed.


ASHLEY

It's what I had.

CHAIRS PLACED TO THE LEFT BOOKSHELF SLIDES TO THE RIGHT

RAY

If this thing can come out of a mirror, what makes you think a door will stop it?


ASHLEY

You think I’m crazy?

RAY

Stressed out for sure.

ASHLEY

You don’t believe me.

RAY

Skeptical maybe, but...

RAY WRESTLES WITH HIS DUFFLE BAG

RAY ( CONT' D) (CONT'D)

Not taking any chances though.

ASHLEY

What do you have in there? A pipe?

RAY

One and a half inch hardened Columbus steel with a solid lug welded on the end. I call it Molly.


ASHLEY

Molly?


RAY

Molly Bend Em.

PIPE WHIPS THROUGH THE AIR

ASHLEY

You ready?

RAY (CONT'D)

What in the blue blazes?

ASHLEY

That’s not what I saw in the mirror.


RAY

That’s the biggest rat I’ve ever seen.


ASHLEY

That’s not what I saw.

RAY

Where’s its tail? It’s cut clean off.


ASHLEY

Ray. Believe me. The thing in the mirror was huge.


RAY

It’s just a rat, Ash.


BATHROOM DOOR CLOSES


ASHLEY

This might sound crazy, but I think Polly’s disappearance has something to do with the book she was reading to me.


RAY

Was that the book with a pot smoking caterpillar and a girl on acid?


ASHLEY

Not that book. This one.

LUCY’S NOTEBOOK RUSTLES PAGES TURN

ASHLEY (CONT'D)

Right here is says you can go into a mirror.


RAY

Huh. Well. This is a lot to think about.


ASHLEY

Please don’t think I'm crazy, Ray. I couldn’t stand it if you thought I was crazy.


RAY

No. I’d don’t. Cross my heart.

ASHLEY

You are important to me. I shouldn’t have let you go.


RAY

You mean a lot to me or I wouldn’t have come back.


ASHLEY

I’m so glad you did.

RAY

You pull on me like gravity. I love you Ashley.


ASHLEY

Do you even know what love means?


RAY

It means I can be totally dumb and know that you won't laugh AT me.


ASHLEY

Most of the time.

RAY

That I can cry and know that you'll comfort me.


ASHLEY

All of the time.

RAY

It means I can tell you my fears and know that you won't scorn me. In a word, its trust.


ASHLEY

Can I trust you Ray?

RAY

All of the time. But it’s late and I’m exhausted.


ASHLEY

You can't go.

RAY

Nothing is going to come out of that mirror


ASHLEY

Then you sleep here.

RAY

Now you're talking.

ASHLEY

Alone.

NARRATOR

Lucy rushes down the sidewalk past boutiques and pubs with growing hysteria. She pauses and glances at her reflection in a shop window.

Her reflection is a mere shimmer.

LUCY

What’s happening to me?

HEAVY BREATHING FOOTSTEPS RUSH OFF

LUCY (CONT'D)

I’ve got to stop this.

NARRATOR

Lucy rushes into her bedroom. She leaps in front of the full length mirror.


LUCY BREATHES HEAVILY

SHE WHIMPERS WITH GROWING PANIC

NARRATOR (CONT'D)

As she stares intently into the mirror her reflection begins to dissolve.


LUCY

Why is this happening?

LUCY HYPERVENTILATES


NARRATOR

Lucy’s reflection fades out starting at her feet. The last thing visible in the mirror is a reflection of Lucy's eyes. Then nothing. Lucy leans in towards the mirror desperate to find her reflection. Suddenly a clawed hand whips out from the mirror and yanks Lucy inside.

RAY (CONT'D)

What the...

NARRATOR

As he leans in and a tiny dot forms in the corner. Ray pokes a finger at the dot. A wave washes across the mirror. Ray looks at his finger at a drop of blood. Ray watches in growing horror as a bloody rat tail falls out of the mirror and squirms on the counter.


RAY SCREAMS

STUMBLING BACKWARDS HE CLOSES THE MEDICINE CABINET

ASHLEY

Ray? You okay?

NARRATOR

Ray squats in the fetal position with his back against the farthest wall. The bathroom door is closed and the makeshift barricade is back in place.



MUSIC CUE SHERIFF STATION

SHERIFF

So you’re telling me to sit on this?

























CUT TO


AGENT LEE

Just for a little while longer.

SHERIFF

I’ve got a distraught Grandmother calling every ten minutes, a hysterical college kid babbling on about mirrors and a magical dismembered arm in my file cabinet probably playing rock paper scissors with itself...and I should just do nothing?


AGENT LEE

I’ve been in contact with my office, they are scouring the database for any reference to this situation. It will take some time.


SHERIFF

Why would it take time? How could something like this have ever happened before?


AGENT LEE

You might be surprised.

KNOCK AT THE OFFICE DOOR

SHERIFF

Enter.

DEPUTY

Hey Sheriff. No answer at Mina’s place yesterday. The neighbor saw the roommate heading out to work. Shall I check back today?


SHERIFF

Naw. I might as well head over there myself since I’ve got nothing else to do except sit on my hands. If that’s okay with you Agent Lee?


AGENT LEE

Shall I join you?

SHERIFF

For such a boring, routine thing? I’d rather you stay here in case your office finds something of interest.


AGENT LEE

As you wish Sheriff.



MUSIC CUE ASHLEY’S HOUSE

NARRATOR

In the kitchen Ashley sits at the table. Ray pours himself a mug of steaming coffee. Bits of shaving cream still cling to his half shaven face.


COFFEE POURS

ASHLEY FIDGETS WITH HER ZIPPO LIGHTER RAY GULPS




CUT TO


RAY

We should go to the cops. That FBI agent maybe?


ASHLEY

No. They tried to take Polly away last time.



Last time?

RAY


ASHLEY

When Johnathan died. The doctors at the hospital thought I was unstable. That sparked the investigation. They wanted to take Polly away. I can't take that risk again.


RAY

Then I guess we’ll have to solve this on our own.


RAY GULPS MORE COFFEE

RAY (CONT'D)

I’ll cover for you at work.

ASHLEY

What should I do?

RAY

I'd start with the book.

ASHLEY

Yes, of course, Lucy.

ASHLEY (CONT'D)


DOOR OPENS

Lucy?




NARRATOR

The bedroom looks like a bomb exploded inside. The mattress is half off the box spring as if someone had tossed it. A full length Cheval mirror is on its side and cracked.


ASHLEY

Oh my god. What happened here?

NARRATOR

Ashley plucks out a paper receipt that sticks out of broken the mirror.


ASHLEY

Piece Unique?



ASHLEY GASPS

NARRATOR

Reflected in the broken mirror Lucy is lays on the floor. Her arms and legs are bent backwards like a rag doll as if she had been thrown with great force.

(MORE)

NARRATOR (CONT'D)

Lucy’s face is a mask of horror frozen in a silent scream. Ashley backs out of the bedroom.



ASHLEY SCREAMS

SHERIFF

Simmer down, Mrs. Harker.

ASHLEY SCREAMS AGAIN






FOOTSTEPS

SHERIFF (CONT'D)

Wait out here, Mrs Harker. I need to take a closer look.



SHERIFF (CONT'D)

Okay. Now, don’t you grab my ankle, hell, don’t grab any of me.


SHERIFF BLOWS GLOVE INFLATES LATEX SNAPS

SHERIFF (CONT'D)

Don’t you move...don’t you dare move.


THE SHERIFF GASPS.


NARRATOR

Half of Lucy’s head is cleanly cut away as if by a laser or a deli slicer. The Sheriff glances in the broken mirror. Reflected behind the cracks is the other half of Lucy’s head on the floor. But when the Sheriff turns back towards Lucy, the missing piece of her head is not there.


SHERIFF

Oh my gawd. This is getting too weird.
