TONY ESPINO SCARE CUT V1.1 ORIGINAL DRAFT 6/23/15

INT. BARBER SHOP – DAY

OLIVE is in the middle of cutting ELROY’S hair.

OLIVE
I have no idea what to make for
dinner tonight. Oh no! I have to
stop cutting your hair.

ELROY
No you don’t.

OLIVE
I really do. There’s a ghost in it.

ELROY
What kind of ghost?

OLIVE
A dead one. Very rare.

ELROY
Why is there a ghost in my hair?

OLIVE
Dead skin. Dead ends. Dead ghost.
It just fits in.

ELROY
But you can’t just stop cutting my
hair because there’s a ghost in it.

OLIVE
I’m afraid I have to. If I continue
it’s going to turn into a
poltergeist.

ELROY
You mean like some sort of Nazi
ghost?

OLIVE
Worse. Trust me.

ELROY
I did trust you. To cut my hair.
But now it’s worse than before.

OLIVE
I don’t know. It was pretty bad
before.

ELROY
Give me the scissors.

OLIVE
You don’t want to do this.

ELROY
This is dumb. I’m not afraid of
some stupid ghost in my hair.

Elroy snatches the scissors and begins cutting his hair.

ELROY (CONT’D)
See? Chop. Chop. Chop. Right
through the ghost.

OLIVE
Mmmm. Hmmm.

ELROY
Whoa! What’s going on?

Elroy’s head shakes around uncontrollably and starts knocking
over all the items on the counter.

OLIVE
I warned you. Now you have a
poltergeist in your hair.

Elroy starts banging his head on the table.

ELROY
This sucks!

He rubs his hair in Olive’s face.

ELROY (CONT’D)
What do we do?

OLIVE
We have to shave your head. It’s
our only option.

ELROY
OK!

Olive picks up the clippers then gets hit in the head by
Elroy’s possessed head.

OLIVE
Ouch!

Olive’s head begins shaking around.

ELROY
What are you doing?

OLIVE
There must have been two ghosts in
your hair, because there’s one in
mine now!

ELROY
No!

Olive picks up another set of clippers and hands it to Elroy.

OLIVE
Take these clippers. On three we
shave each other’s heads. Ready?

ELROY
Ready.

OLIVE
One…two…three…

BLACKOUT.
