crAZRick's crazy fan-fics: #2 Halloween 7.5

I wrote this a few years ago, after Halloween: H20 came out on DVD. H20 seemed to offer a fitting end to the Michael Myers saga, most fans said 'So what if this was National Lampoon's Halloween Vacation in California... OK, Michael got a grand send-off, Laurie got her paybacks, so what if H20 ignored Halloween 3 thru 6... Donald Pleasence is gone, no more Loomis = no more Michael Myers...'

Michael Myers' 'grand send-off'?? No more Loomis = no more Michael Myers??
So what if H20 ignored half of the series?

So what?!?!

I could write a Halloween sequel that doesn't ignore half the series and in fact reintroduces some beloved characters from those middle chapters, introduces a Loomis-essence foil, gives Michael Myers center stage again, allows him to get payback in revenge for Laurie's gruesome payback, and brings it all back home, back to Haddonfield, where any decent Halloween movie belongs!!

so I did.

Remember: I wrote this after H20, and before Resurrection was conceived, though some few certain similarities do develop between my vision and what showed up in Resurrection (noteably the 'coming home' aspect); and I did tack on a Resurrection-lead-in ending after that film hit DVD so it can still fit between H20 and Resurrection (hence the 7.5 title), but the bulk of this screenplay was in the can long before Resurrection hit theaters...

DISCLAIMER: I don't own Halloween. This is a fan-fic using and/or referencing characters and stories created by John Carpenter, Debra Hill, Tommy Lee Wallace, Dhani Lipsius, Larry Rattner, Benjamin Ruffner, Alan B. McElroy, Michael Jacobs, Dominique Othenin-Gerard, Shem Bitterman, Daniel Farrands, Robert Zappia and Matt Greenberg.

Read at your own risk; it's most likely crap, and very scary Halloween crap!
I no longer regret that I have no quote, quip or anecdote to share with my countrymen... how about all y'all?

HILL CREST PRIVATE ACADEMY, CALIFORNIA- NIGHT

A medical evacuation transport van careens from the road, crashing through the barricade and rumbling down a steep slope into the ditch. A dark, masked figure, MICHAEL MYERS, is clinging to the front grill of the van, as the van crashes into a large tree.

KERI TATE staggers from the smoking van, holding a large fireman's axe.

MICHAEL MYERS rouses slowly, discovering that he is pinned between the van and the tree trunk. MICHAEL's hands flail wildly at the mask for a moment, before he sets his gaze upon KERI.

A confused, plaintiff gaze from MICHAEL to KERI

MICHAEL reaches his hand out toward KERI

KERI steps forward apprehensively, then steps back and turns away

(a long beat)

KERI spins on her heel, raising the axe with determined zeal

SOUND OF AXE, SEVERING FLESH AND BONE, AND LODGING IN TREE TRUNK VIEW FROM BEHIND TREE, OFFSET TO FOCUS ON KERI TATE

MICHAEL MYERS' head falls to one side, rolling free from his body § §KERI drops the axe and stumbles backwards, sobbing, relieved § §KERI collapses to her knees, panting, sobbing, wiping tears

SHIFT FOCUS: BEHIND KERI AWAY FROM SCENE NEAR VAN TO STEEPLY-SLOPING DITCH

PARAMEDIC approaches silently, marching methodically into scene

As PARAMEDIC approaches KERI, FOCUS on PARAMEDIC's torso, from chest to waist, catching glimpse of burned, scarred, tattooed hand

KERI SENSES SOMEONE APPROACHING, AND ATTEMPTS TO RECOVER AND STAND

Garbled sigh-scream as KERI is lifted forcibly from the ground, from behind, her head in the vice-like grip of the burned, scarred hands

FOCUS ON PARAMEDIC UNIFORMED ARMS AND CHEST

PAN AROUND SCENE, CENTERED ON KERI

PARAMEDIC crushing KERI TATE's skull between his hands

PARAMEDIC drops KERI to her knees, and grips her head in his hands, twisting her head sharply from side to side

KERI goes limp in PARAMEDIC's grasp

PARAMEDIC drops KERI's dead weight to the ground

PAN FROM PARAMEDIC TO BASE OF TREE

FOCUS ON SEVERED HEAD, in mask, near quivering body, still pinned to tree by van

PARAMEDIC steps forward, leaning, removing mask from severed head

FOCUS ON HEAD, centered on piercing blue eyes

ZOOM SLOWLY IN ON BLUE EYES

ZOOM SLOWLY OUT AWAY FROM BLUE EYES TO:

FLASHBACK: HILL CREST ACADEMY SCHOOL GROUNDS PROPER

3 gurneys loaded into 3 transport vans

BLUE EYES and other PARAMEDICS manage the scene

BLUE EYES
Is that the last of 'em?

PARAMEDIC #2
(shaking head)
Uhh, there's one more, in there… BLUE EYES wipes blood from his gloved hands with handkerchief, wadding handkerchief and stuffing it in his pocket, before moving toward building

BLUE EYES
I got this one.
You guys get ready to move out.
This is a damn nightmare!

PARAMEDIC #2
(laughing)
Yeah!
Happy Halloween!!

BLUE EYES exits scene, into building, while other PARAMEDICS finish loading vans

Crash-site, centered on severed head of BLUE EYES behind MASK

NOTE: BLUE EYE'S mouth stuffed with BLOODY HANDKERCHIEF

PAN FROM SEVERED HEAD, UP PARAMEDIC'S BODY, AS PARAMEDIC RISES, AND DONS THE WHITE-FACED MASK
