A convenience store in a Texas Suburb. No other businesses surround it.

CLOSE-UP: A light switch is flipped on.

The sign on top of the store lights up. It reads: "BENNY'S WORLD OF LIQUOR."



A Texas Ranger patrol car pulls into the parking lot and a real live Texas Ranger, EARL MCGRAW, steps out. McGraw is in full ranger uniform - button shirt, cowboy hat, boots, mirrored shades, tin star and a colt revolver on his hip.

It's about an hour and a half before sundown and McGraw is off duty for the day.

The only other car in the parking lot is a 1975 Plymouth (Charley Varrick's car).


A young Hawaiian Shirt wearing man named PETE sits on a stool behind the counter.

A few CUSTOMERS fiddle about.

A MAN wearing a black suit, black tie, and wire rim glasses holds hands with a PRETTY BLONDE GIRL in cutoffs and bare feet. They look through magazines.

Another black suit wearing MAN holds hands with a RED-HEADED GIRL in a prep school uniform. They look through the beer cooler in the back of the store. Both girls are around seventeen.

MCGRAW enters the store.

McGraw walk over to the beer cooler, as if done ritually every night (it is), takes out a beer, pops it open and joins Pete by the front counter.

McGraw drops his last drip of beer, crushes the can and exits in the bathroom.

The black suited man by the beer cooler turns around and, with the prep school girl in tow, walks rapidly toward Pete. We see that the girl is crying.

The two men in black suits are the notorious Abilene bank robbers, SETH and RICHARD GECKO, "The Gecko Brothers." And the other customers are all being held hostage. Seth is the one with the prep girl. Richard is the one with the blonde. Everybody speaks low and fast.

Richard, holding tightly the hand of the terrified girl, leans next to Seth's ear and whispers something. Seth looks at Pete.

Pete controls himself.

Richard speaks for the first time in a low calm voice to Seth.

The toilet FLUSHES.

Everybody goes back to what they were doing.

McGraw steps back out of the back. He appears to be unaware of the situation.

Out of nowhere Richard WHIPS out his forty-five automatic and SHOOTS McGraw in the head.

McGraw goes down screaming.

Richard stands over him and SHOOTS him twice more.

Seth charges forward.

Richard SHOOTS Pete and Pete falls down behind the counter.

Seth grabs Richard and throws him up against the wall.

Richard mouths the words, "Help Us."

While Pete lies on the floor behind the counter bleeding from his bullet wound, he opens his floor safe and pulls out a gun from it.

Seth releases his brother.

Richard walks away from Seth and crosses the counter...

...when Pete SPRINGS up, gun in hand, and SHOOTS Richard in the shoulder.

Richard FALLS to his knees, howling.

Both Pete and Seth SPRAY the store with gunfire.

Seth DIVES down an aisle. He reloads.

Pete DUCKS behind the counter. He reloads.

Richard has crawled to safety behind an aisle.

The two girls have run out screaming.

The two brothers start FIRING toward the counter.

They HIT the bottles of alcohol on the shelf behind Pete.

Pete is crouched on the ground as glass, debris and alcohol RAIN down on him.

Seth grabs a roll of paper towels from off a shelf.

Richard keeps FIRING.

Seth douses the paper towels with lighter fluid, sets it on fire with his Zippo, then tosses it.

The flaming roll of paper towels FLIES through the air.

The fireball lands behind the counter.

The entire counter area immediately BURSTS INTO FLAMES. Pete screams from behind the counter.

Seth smiles to himself and stands.

Richard shakes his head in amusement and stands.

Pete runs out from behind the counter, ENGULFED IN FLAMES, still holding his weapon and FIRING.

Seth and Richard hit the ground FIRING their .45's.

Pete, the human torch, FALLS like a tree into the Hostess Pastry display.

Seth and Richard rise from the rubble.


They exit the store squabbling. The store is bursting into flames.

Both Seth and Richard stand on opposite sides of the car.

They both climb in the car (Seth behind the wheel). Seth starts it op. The souped up engine ROARS to life. We can hear Seth mumbling under the motor.


The Plymouth tears out of the parking lot backwards, hits the street, and speeds off down the road.

We CRANE UP HIGH to see the car leaving a trail of dust behind it, as the store burns out of control.



Emma and Pete's Gravy Train is a truck stop of of Highway 290.




Emma and Pete's PATRONS are made up of regulars, truckers, cowboys and road-weary travelers. The CAMERA DOLLIES through the maze of tables, patrons, and waitresses.

It stops when it gets to a table occupied by the FULLER FAMILY. The Fullers definitely fall into the road-weary category. The members of the unit consist of the father, JACOB, age 44, an ex-preacher, a good man with rough edges, and his two children, KATE, age 19, is a young beauty who possesses what can only be described as as an apple pie sensuality. She is dressed like a nice Christian girl, complete with crucifix. SCOTT, age 16, is a Jacob's Vietnamese adopted son. Scott is a likable, long-haired kid who always wears a t-shirt with the name of the heavy metal garage band he plays guitar for, "Precinct 13." The three of them are wolfing down a late lunch.

Scott and Kate speak together, obviously repeating something that Jacob has said about three hundred times.

Scott and Kate continue the impersonation.

Jacob gives Scott a look that says, "You aren't touching my new motor home."

Scott gets up from the table and walks out back to the restroom.

Jacob and Kate are left alone. There's an awkward moment of silence before...


CLOSE UP: COUNTER BELL. A hand slams down on it. RING.


Seth stands at the front desk of the Dew Drop Inn. A standard issue Texas motel. Richard sits outside in the car. Nobody responds to the bell. Seth BANGS it impatiently five times.

An OLD TIMER walks through a curtain behind the counter. He's eating a BBQ rib.


Richard sits in the car listening to Merle Haggard on the radio. He watches from his perspective, Seth taking the walking outside and getting in the car. Seth starts it up, and drives them to their room.

Their car drives up to room #9, but they park backing up the trunk close to the door.

The two brothers get out of the car.

Richie opens the door.

Seth goes to the trunk, looks around the courtyard. It's empty.

CLOSE UP: KEY going into the trunk lock, turning.

TRUNK POV: Seth looking into the camera.

SETH'S POV: A WOMAN in her late forties is lying scrunched up in the trunk.

She is the HOSTAGE BANK TELLER from Abilene. She's stiff, scared and looks an absolute mess.

The two brothers, quick as lightening, yank the woman out of the trunk and whisk her into the motel room. SETH closes the trunk, looks around for any Johnny eye-witnesses, doesn't see any, slams the door.


Seth turns from the door, see's the hostage woman standing

She shuts up.

Richard slowly takes off his jacket. He winces from his wound.

He helps him get his jacket off. Richie's white shirt is bloody around the shoulder area. His wound is wrapped up underneath.

Richie goes over to the bed and lies down on it. Seth takes the pillow and stacks them for Richie to prop his back up against.

He heads for the door.


Seth goes into the car, takes out a big suitcase. He scans the perimeter with his eyes, goes back inside.


Seth comes back in, lays the suitcase on the bed. Richie has the T.V. remote control in his hand and he's flipping stations. Seth looks at his watch.

Richie shrugs and turns back to T.V.. Seth turns to the hostage, grabs a chair and slides it up in front of her.

He shakes her hand.

Seth takes the .45, places the barrel next to the woman's cheek. She squirms and shuts her eyes. He pulls back the hammer.

She nods her head yes.

He takes the gun away and replaces the hammer.

She does.

She nods her head yes.

Seth rises.

He exits.

Richard looks to the T.V., then looks to Gloria sitting across the room in the chair.

You can tell she doesn't want to.

He pats the empty space next to him.

She gets out of her chair, walks across the bed and sits next to him.


A phone booth outside of a gas station. Seth is in the middle of a conversation with the party on the other end. Seth speaks Spanish and his dialog is subtitled into English beneath him.

This scene was cut from the film, although it WAS filmed.

Seth hangs up the phone, lights up a cigarette with his Zippo lighter and exits frame. After Seth exits, leaving the frame empty, a subtitle appears:




Richard lies on the bed by himself, propped up by pillows, watching T.V., taking on hits from a water bong in the shape of a wizard.


A local newscaster named KELLY HOUGE is reporting a story about the brothers.






A red line travels from Wichita to Oklahoma.

The red line enters Texas and the camera moves into Texas.

WE ZOOM in on a red-circled Abilene.




Kelly Houge walks down the court house steps of the criminal courts building of Abilene. She talks to the camera. Cops, lawyers and citizens bustle in the b.g.

Richard smiles.

This line was cut from the final film.

Seth enters the room carrying a six pack of beer and two take-out bags of Big Kahuna burgers.

Seth dumps the burgers on the bed. Both men pop open beers and Richard goes to town on a hamburger. Seth flips off the T.V.

Seth sits down and takes a hit off his beer.

Seth stops talking and looks around.

Seth's out of his chair.

He goes to the door of the adjoining room.

Seth stops and looks at his brother. He knows what he means. He can't say anything, only point at his younger sibling. Then he BURSTS open the door.

The dead, naked body of Gloria Hill lies on the bed. It's obvious Richard raped and killed her.

Seth covers his eyes with his hands. He slowly enters the room with the dead body.

Richard rises from the bed.

Seth slowly turns to his brother, then walks toward him.

Richard backs up.

Seth grabs Richard and THROWS him in the corner of the room, holding tightly to his wrist.

Seth hugs his little brother. Tight.


Scott and Kate are in the front seat of their parked motor home. The motor home's parked in front of the Dew Drop Inn's front office. We see Jacob inside getting a room from the Old Timer.

Jacob walks out of the office. Kate yells from the motor home.

He opens the meter home door and climbs in.

Starting the huge car and slowly maneuvering it through the courtyard.


Seth walks out of room #9 with a beer in his hand. He's thinking about how he's going to get over the border tonight. Lost in thought, he steps out in the path of the Fuller's motor home.

Jacob slams on the brakes. Seth jumps back, startled. Both Kate and Scott are TOSSED out of their seats onto the floor. THUD... THUD...

Jacob (pissed) honks his horn at Seth and yells out the window.


Seth just stands right in their way without moving, gazing up at the giant motor home.


Kate and Scott join him up front looking at this weirdo.

Seth continues standing in their way, making no attempt to move. Not threatening, just looking at them.


The horn snaps Seth back to this world. A smile breaks out on the escaped fugitive's face and he politely steps to one side to let them pass.

Pass they do!

The Sword of Damocles is lifted from above Seth's head. He's just solved a problem that a mere thirty seconds ago seemed unsolvable. He knows exactly how he's going to cross the border. Whistling a happy tune, he turns and walks back into room #9.


The Fullers are in room 12. It's identical to the one that the Gecko boys are in, except that the paintings above the beds are different. Jacob has fallen asleep in his clothes on the bed.

Scott sits in a chair, headphones on, playing an unplugged electric guitar. Kate is nowhere in sight.

KNOCK... KNOCK... KNOCK... on the door. Scott doesn't hear shit but his music. Jacob stirs a bit, but doesn't wake up. POUND... POUND... POUND... on the door. Jacob SPRINGS UP. He looks over at Scott, who, lost in guitar heaven, is oblivious of the knocker, then to the door.

From the other side of the door comes a friendly voice.

Jacob swings his feet to the floor, stands up and walks to the door. As he passes Scott, he says, in his direction --

Scott can't hear him, but when he sees his dad look at him, he smiles.

Jacob opens the door and sees...

... Richard Gecko standing in the doorway, looking like the nicest guy in the entire world.

We follow Jacob as he turns to the dresser to get the motel ice bucket. He grabs it, turns back to the door, takes a couple of steps towards it, then stops:in his tracks.

He sees Richard and Seth both inside the room with the door closed, both with .45's in their hands, both aimed at him.

Seth SLUGS Jacob in the mouth, KNOCKING him to the ground.

Scott suddenly becomes aware of what's going on around him and instinctively stands. Richard shoves his .45 in Scott's mouth.

Scott lowers himself back down onto his seat.

Jacob lifts his head off the floor and wipes blood away from his lip. He looks at his opponent who stands over him.

Jacob rises and sits on the edge of the bed.

Keeping the gun in Scott's mouth, Richard makes Scott

.., guiding him over to the bed by his father.

Richard removes the gun from Scott's mouth and stands next to his brother, looking down at their two hostages.

The door to room #12 opens and a dripping wet, bikini clad Kate walks in.

The brothers spin their guns in her direction.

Kate, startled, screams. Jacob and Scott get on their feet and move forward. Seth spins back towards the two men, gun ready to spit.

Jacob and Scott freeze.

Richard moves like quicksilver, shutting the door and positioning himself behind the terrified Kate.

They slowly sit.

Richard can't take his eyes off the dripping wet Kate.

Both Jacob and Seth see this and neither men like it. Both for their own reasons.

Richard doesn't move from his position behind Kate. Kate feels his eyes on her. She slowly turns and looks at him,

He looks in her face.


She smiles at him.


Richard's eyes go to Seth.

Everybody is where they were. Kate never turned around.

Without saying a word, he takes the keys and leaves the room.

She grabs some clothes from the floor and moves towards the bathroom.

Seth GRABS her wrist.

Seth grabs a chair and slides it up to his two male hostages.

We hear the motor home "HONK" twice outside.

Jacob shakes his head "no."

Scott gets up and walks to the other side of the room, leaving the two men alone. Seth speaks in a quiet, conversational tone.

Jacob looks at him.

Seth BANGS on the bathroom door.

The bathroom door opens. Kate stands there, wearing a Bullwinkle t-shirt, jeans and bare feet.



The motor home with the powder keg interior drives through the Lone Star night.


Richard's in the back bed area with a gun trained on Rate and Scott. The two scared siblings hold hands.

Richard zeros in on her.

He doesn't smile.

In the front part of the motor home, Jacob sits behind the wheel, driving into the night. Seth sits in the passenger seat, going through Jacob's wallet and talking to him calmly.

Seth repeats the names as he thumbs through the wallet.

Seth comes to a snapshot of Jacob and his wife.

Seth looks back at the wallet. He sees Jacob's minister's license.

The two men look at each other for some measure of trust. Seth sticks out his hand. Seth can't help but think about the last time he gave his word.

Jacob takes his hand, but looks right into Seth.

Kate goes into a drawer, pulls out a bible and brings it up front.

Jacob does.



Richard's in the back with Kate and Scott. Richard, expressionless, looks at Kate's bare feet.


EX CU KATE'S TOES. They wiggle.

His eyes go to her hands.



His eyes go to her neck.


EX CU KATE'S ADAM'S APPLE. She swallows.

His eyes move up. SIDE PROFILE OF KATE, SLOW ZOOM TO KATE'S LIPS Back to Richard.

Kate turns to him.

Richard turns to Kate.

Kate still hasn't a clue what he means.



Automobiles are lined up, waiting one by one to go into Mexico. Cop cars with their red and blue lights flashing are all over the place. Border Patrol men and Police are stopping all cars. Pulling up to the end of the line is the Fuller's mobile home. INT. MOBILE HOME - NIGHT

Jacob at the wheel, Seth in the passenger seat. Seth jumps up and goes into action.

Richard grabs the terrified Kate and drags her in the bathroom,

Scott does. Seth, keeping low, gets behind Jacob.

Seth disappears into the bathroom with Kate and Richard, closing the door behind him.

Father and son are alone for the first time since this whole thing began.

Jacob is surprised to hear Scott say this.


The bathroom, which consists of a shower, a toilet and a small sink, is a tight fit with three people in it.

Richard has his back against the wall, with his arm around Kate, holding her in front of him. One hand is over her mouth, the other holds a .45 against her head.

Kate's eyes are wide with fear.

Seth stands, .45 in hand, ready to fire if the wrong person should open the door.

Everybody talks low and quiet.

Everyone's quiet for a second, till Richard breaks it.

Richard lets Kate go, she quickly moves to the side.

Kate can't believe what she's watching. Neither can Seth. BACK TO JACOB AND SCOTT

Jacob grabs Scott by the front of his shirt, and yanks him to him.

There's a HONK behind them.

They both look out the window. It's their turn with the BORDER PATROL GUARDS. JACOB takes the wheel and drives up.

A stern BORDER GUARD approaches JACOB'S window.


SETH HAULS off and PUNCHES Richard smack in the head. Richard HITS the floor, Guard, Jacob, and Scott hear Richard fall in the bathroom.


BACK TO BATHROOM CU KATE We can only see Kate's face. It's scared. We hear rustling around the bathroom, but we don't know what it is.

Then it's quiet. Then we hear talking outside the door, but we can't make it out. Then we hear a knock.

We hear the door open and see the light change on Kate's face. She's looking up.

BORDER GUARD in the doorway looking in.

HE SEES: Kate by herself, pants around her ankles, sitting on the toilet.

He closes the door. Kate lets out a breath. We wait a beat, Seth pulls back the curtain in the shower, we see Richie on the floor of the shower knocked out.

Seth and Kate meet eyes.

He gives her the O.K. signal. CUT TO:


We see through the back window of the motor home, the border getting smaller as we drive away from it.

Scott knocks on the bathroom door.

Seth BURSTS out of the bathroom.

Seth goes to the back window. He sees the border getting farther and farther away. No cars following.

Seth throws his head back and SCREAMS for joy.

Kate, emerging from the bathroom, reacts to Seth's scream, along with Scott.

Seth is so happy that he does a little jig in the back of the van.

Everybody else is still tense as shit. But Seth lets go of all his tension, and becomes a new man before our eyes. he turns to Kate.

Kate, nervous, takes a step back.

He charges for her. GRABS her, hugs her around her waist, and spins her around. When he lets her go, she stumbles dizzily onto the bed.

Kate kind of half smiles.

Seth goes up front and slaps Jacob on the back.

Jacob doesn't share Seth's enthusiasm, but he is relieved.

He slaps him once again on the back, and leaves to attend to Richard.


CLOSE-UP RICHARD without glasses. Unconscious, Seth slaps

his face.

Richard starts coming to and opens his eyes. Seth sits at the foot of the bed. Slowly shaking the cobwebs out of his head.

Jacob calls to the back.


A neon sign that flashes:

THE TITTY TWISTER Hiker/Trucker bar, Dusk till Dawn"

Underneath the joint's proud name on the sign, and on top of "Biker/Trucker bar, Dusk till Dawn" is a well-endowed woman, whose breast is being twisted by a neon hand.


The neon sign sits on top of the rudest, sleaziest, most crab-infested, strip joint, honky-tonk whorehouse in all of Mexico.

The Titty Twister is located out in the middle of nowheresville. It sits by itself with nothing around it for miles. A plethora of choppers and eighteen wheelers are parked out in front. The walls almost pulsate from the LOUD, RAUNCHY MUSIC within the structure. Signs cover the walls outside reading things like:


In the parking lot, a BIKER and a TRUCK DRIVER beat the shit out of each other, one with a pipe, the other with a hammer. A SECOND BIKER fucks a Titty Twister WHORE against the wall. A greasy man, known as CHET PUSSY, stands in the parking lot, soliciting customers through a Mr. Microphone.

The Fullers' recreational vehicle pulls into the parking lot and stops.


What's left of the Fuller family and the Gecko family look out the windshield onto the sight that is the Titty Twister.

Everybody nods and mutters in agreement.


The camper door FLIES OPEN and the two brothers and the Fuller family step out into the night.

They look across the parking lot at the Titty Twister. It literally looks in some ways like the entrance to hell.

Seth can't believe it.

The two brothers square off, not like strangers fighting, but like brothers fight. They talk real quiet, but real personal.

That's not what Seth expected to hear.

Richard believes Seth's response.

They walk toward the bar's entrance. Chet Pussy talks into the microphone. Chet notices our heroes, especially young Kate.


Seth GRABS HOLD of Chet's FINGER, BENDS it BACKWARDS till the BONE SNAPS in two.

Chet lets out a SCREAM.


Chet FALLS to his KNEES in front of Seth.

Seth HOOKS him with a powerful FIST UNDER his CHIN that SNAPS Chet's HEAD BACK, and THROWS him on his BACK.


Chet is OUT.

The whole altercation took two seconds.

Everyone's in shock and looks at Seth. Seth looks back at everyone.

Richard and Seth laugh with each other.

They head for the door. Richard stays behind for a second, and gives the fallen Chet a few, swift kicks,


If the Titty Twister looked like the asshole of the world from the outside, in the immortal words of Al Jolson, "You ain't seen nothin' yet." This is the kind of place where they sweep up the teeth and hose down the cum, the blood and the beer at closing.

In the back, TOPLESS DANCERS do lap dances with customers, while a SLEAZY SEXY STRIPPER STRIPS to RAUNCHY MUSIC, played at eardrum-bursting level. TWO MEN are in a savage BARE KNUCKLE FIGHT, surrounded by screaming customers of bikers and truckers.

One of the dancers is a man with a saddle on his back, his name is DANNY THE WONDER PONY. The woman on his back, in the saddle, feet in the stirrups, hands on the reins, is ATHENA, his rider. They dance around to the cheers of the crowd.

Bikers and truckers play pool in the back. Fights break out here about one every ten minutes. The customers may start 'em, but the bouncer, BIG EMILIO, ends 'em.

Seth, Richard, Jacob, Scott and Kate walk through the door. They each individually take in the sights and the smells. Seth is the first to say something.

The man behind the bar is RAZOR CHARLIE. He eyes the group as they approach.

Their difference from the usual road waif nomads who populate the Twister disturbs him. He exchanges a knowing look across the room with Big Emilio, as the group bellies up to the bar.

Big Emilio almost magically appears behind Seth and places HIS BIG BEEFY SAUSAGE-FINGERED HAND HARD on Seth's shoulder.

Seth slowly turns his eyes to the big hand on his shoulder.

Jacob jumps in the middle.

Everybody looks at Jacob.

As Jacob talks he takes out his wallet.

Everybody's a little stunned after Jacob's speech.

Razor Charlie picks up the license, looks at Jacob, looks at everyone in the party and smiles.

Seth BRUSHES OFF Big Emilio's paw.

Razor Charlie's eyes go to Seth. Even though he has a big smile on his face, he looks like he's going to kill Seth. But instead he just says,

Razor Charlie goes for the bottle. Big Emilio gives the party one last look and walks away. Richard gives Jacob a buddy punch on the shoulder.

Seth's still frying an egg on his head.

Richard puts his arm around Seth.

Razor Charlie brings the bottle and the glasses. Seth looks at the guy, still pissed. Razor Charlie knows Seth's taunting him with a racial slur, But he just smiles and says,

Seth walks away, and the group follows him.

We just hang on the evil wheels turning inside of Razor Charlie's head.

The five of them move across the floor to a table. As they walk, Kate attracts stares, wolf whistles and rude comments from some of the patrons. Jacob keeps near his daughter.

The dancers do their sexy routines. A big-chested, wild-haired blonde catches Scott's eye. She winks at him.

Richard leans over and whispers in Scott's ear.

He gives the boy's neck a squeeze. Jacob's eyes survey the surroundings. Big Emilio and Razor Charlie quietly exchange words about the party in Spanish.

The five of them find a table and sit down.

Seth, still in a bad mood, takes the cork out of the whiskey bottle and tosses it. He pours Richie and himself a glass.

Scott shakes his head no.

Seth pours Scott a shot.

Scott takes the drink and he, too, experiences a non-drinker's tremor.

Seth turns to Kate.

Seth just passes her the bottle. She pours her own shot and knocks it back.

Jacob turns to Seth and asks quietly.

Richard, Kate and Scott both turn to Jacob. Nobody can believe what he just said. Neither can Seth who calmly lays down his drinking glass.

Seth looks at Jacob, then picks up the bottle.

Jacob slides his empty glass.over to Seth. Seth pours booze in Jacob's glass and his own. Both men pick up the glasses.

They both knock 'em back and slap the empty glasses down.

Seth turns to Scott.


Seth sitting at the table, playing guitar, singing Mexican songs. Some bikers, truckers, and whores have gathered around their table. Everyone's groovin'. Seth finishes the song. Everybody applauds.

Razor Charlie behind the bar grabs the greasy microphone that he uses to announce dancers.

The lights go down low. A light hits the stage. The opening notes of the Coaster's "Down in Mexico" fills the room.

The crowd hushes up.

And on the stage steps SANTANICO PANDEMONIUM.

This Mexican goddess is beautiful, but not the beauty that Stendhal described in "As the Promise of Happiness," but the beauty of the siren who lures men to their doom.

She dances to the raunchy music, netlike she owned the stage, but like she owned the world.

And if the patrons of the Titty Twister are her world, the world is proud to be her possession.

All activity in the bar, save Santanico, stops. Even the Fuller/Gecko table falls under her spell. Especially Richard, Scott and Kate. Seth knows this song and accompanies from the table with the guitar.

When the music builds to its explosive section.

Santanico LEAPS from the stage, LANDING in the middle of the room.

She does an eyes-closed voodoo dance in perfect step with the beat. As the music continues to play, a very fucked-up looking Chet Pussy walks in. He goes over to Razor Charlie and points at Seth's table, describing what happened.

As the last verse plays, Santanico, like a snake, comes up from the ground, on top of the Fuller/Gecko table.

Richard, Kate and Scott are enraptured.

Santanico scans the table, zeroing in on our boy Richard. She STANDS OVER him.

While moving her body to the music, she lifts up the whisky bottle from the table, and pours the whiskey down her leg.

She lifts up her foot, with the whiskey dripping from her toes, and sticks it in Richard's face.

Richie, mesmerized, sucks the whiskey off her toes. The CROWD GOES WILD. Santanico smiles, master of all she surveys.

Jacob and Scott are embarrassed.

Kate, oddly enough, is turned on by the controlling power this woman has over a man she's deathly feared.

Seth laughs out loud a Mexican "yi yi yiii" laugh, keeping the beat with his guitar.

Across the room, Razor Charlie, Chet by his side, motions over Big Emilio. He begins explaining with pointing what Seth and company did to Chet.

Richard continues to suck her toes.

The song ends, Santanico extracts her foot from Richard's mouth. Steps off the table. Takes a drink of whiskey. Looks down at the seated Richard.

She GRABS the back of his hair, YANKS his head BACK. His mouth OPENS because she's hurting him. She LEANS her FACE OVER his like she's going to kiss him. Then let's the whiskey from her mouth fall into his. They never touch. The crowd applauds. She lets go of Richard's hair. Except for Jacob and Richard, both for their own reasons, the table applauds, none louder than Seth.

One of Santanico's FLUNKIES brings the naked woman a robe, which she puts on.

Richard, still in a daze, looks up at his new friend.

Santanico sits down next to Richie. Seth pours her a drink.

The table laughs.

As Seth tells his joke, Jacob notices Razor Charlie, Big Emilio and Chet moving rapidly towards their table.

Seth waves him away.

Seth starts laughing at his own joke uproariously. Richard, Kate, Scott and Santanico join in too. Before Jacob can say anything --

The Titty Twister trio stand over the table.

That's all Big Emilio has to hear. Big Emilio leans in with his beefy hand, GRABS Richard by the shoulder. Richard lets out a howl as blood pours from his wounded shoulder.

Santanico steps back from the table.

Seth jumps to his feet and FIRES a round from his .45 into Big Emilio, sending his bullet-ridden body to the floor. Razor Charlie whips out a straight version of his namesake and SLASHES Seth across the face.

Seth SCREAMS at the top of his lungs as his hand goes up to his laid open cheek.

Richard, who has fallen to the ground holding his wound, brings up his .45 and starts BLASTING.

Razor Charlie takes a bullet in the head, chest and belly before he hits the floor.

Jacob and his children have hit the floor as well to stay out of gunfire.

The bikers, truckers, waitresses and whores all stop what they were doing.

The music continues to play, though the dancers stop dancing.

Santanico, who's closest to the two brothers, smells something.


Richard moves to his brother, who takes out a handkerchief and puts it to his face.

Seth looks up and sees Chet still standing there.

Both brothers FIRE on Chet. Chet's blown left... right... left... right... then drops, Pointing their guns towards the crowd. SLOW MOTION: Blood drips down the side of Seth's face. SLOW MOTION: It splatters to the floor. The CAMERA scans the crowd. The patrons are scared, but the waitresses, whores and dancers lick their lips.

SLOW MOTION: Blood drips from Richard's shoulder. It falls to the floor, splattering.

WE MOVE INTO SANTANICO'S FACE. A special aroma fills her nostrils. Her eyes lock on Richard. The look on her face could easily be read as intense sexual desire.


looks up and watches, eyes wide with fear, Santanico's transformation.

Her NOSE RECEDES INTO her face like a rodent's. The whites of her eyes turn YELLOW. The FANGS of a beast PROTRUDE from her mouth. Kate yells from the floor.

Before Richie can turn around.


Richard LETS LOOSE with an agonizing SCREAM.

Seth turns to his brother's cry.

He sees SANTANICO PANDEMONIUM, like a mongoose attached to a cobra, legs wrapped around Richard's waist, fangs buried deep in his shoulder, and Richard screaming and slamming about, trying to knock her off.

Richard screams to Seth:

Seth tries to aim his gun, but there's too much movement. He can't get a clear shot.

Jacob and his children can't believe what they're seeing.

Richard can't take it anymore, his knees buckle. Santanico rides him down to the floor.

Seth gets a clear shot, he takes aim and FIRES, hitting the vamp in the head, blowing her off his brother.

Richard, who's on all fours, tries to stand and gets about half way before he stops, saying:

He tumbles over, a corpse.

Suddenly, the eyes of Big Emilio, Razor Charlie and Chet Pussy pop open. The "dead" men sit up with evil grins on their faces.

The patrons scream.

A WHORE locks the front door (which is a complicated lock with steel rods going into the ground), turns toward the bar and yells:

The bikers and truckers who have been transfixed, watching the impossible, realize that the waitresses, naked dancers and whores who they were pawing just five minutes ago, have turned into yellow-eyed, razor-fanged, drool-dripping vampires.

The vamps attack.

What follows is a shark feeding frenzy. Whores, who had been sitting on customer's laps, sink their teeth into unshaven necks.

Naked strippers and bikers wail the shit out of each other. Truckers get their heads caved in by women half their size. The patrons use whatever they can find to fend off the monsters: chairs, chair legs, broken bottles, switchblades, anything.

Jacob, Kate and Scott make a dash and dive behind the bar. They hide and watch.

Seth stands where his was, limp dick of a .45 in his hand, too freaked, scared and stunned to do anything. He stands motionless, watching what he can't believe.

Behind him, Santanico, who lies next to the dead Richard, eyes POP OPEN.

She RISES in her snake/dance way.

Seth feels her and SPINS in her direction, gun raised.

She approaches Seth, who FIRES at her. BAM... BAM... BAM... CLICK,.. CLICK... CLICK... CLICK. She laughs and gives her hair a toss back. Seth, moving backwards, is terrified.

Santanico gives Seth a SWINGING ROUNDHOUSE PUNCH to the JAW that sends him FLYING over a table, SLIDING ACROSS the FLOOR and INTO the WALL.

A bad ass biker named FROST, with a hideous burn on the side of his face, stands on top of a pool table, swinging a pool cue, left to right, fending off vamps.

Big Emilio picks up a biker who stabbed him with a switchblade and throws the poor bastard from one end of the bar to the other.

The biker-winner of the bare knuckle fight, SEX MACHINE, goes head to head with a stripper.

The vamp might have superhuman strength, but Sex Machine has close to superhuman strength, and he's matching the vamp bitch blow for blow.

Then he GRABS her by the waist, LIFTS her up over his head and BRINGS her DOWN HARD on an upturned table, IMPALING her on the wooden leg.

FROST is still swinging his POOL CUE, when RAZOR CHARLIE appears, straight razor in hand.

Frost JUMPS off the table to meet the challenge. Razor Charlie SWINGS at him, Frost LEAPS back, SWINGING his pool cue at him. They do this dance, till Frost CRACKS Charlie UPSIDE the HEAD with the pool cue, breaking it in half. Charlie FEELS the HIT. Frost PLUNGES the splintered end of the cue in Razor Charlie's heart.

Green blood comes out of his chest, as Charlie screams the vampire's death scream.

Seth comes to and finds Santanico standing over him. He tries to rise, but Santanico places her bare foot on his chest, pinning him down to the floor. He tries to move, but the pressure of her foot is equivalent to an engine block placed on his chest.



looking down at Seth, her face contorts to FEED MODE, when the bottle HITS her SQUARE in the HEAD, SHATTERING.

We see that Jacob behind the bar threw it.

Santanico, bathed in whiskey and broken glass, is momentarily dazed. She looks down at Seth.

Seth sits up, .45 in hand, and fires.

Santanico is HIT in the CHEST. The bullet from the gun makes the liquor-soaked robe ignite.


Big Emilio sees Santanico's fiery death. He lets out a cry.

He turns his hateful gaze on the two humans.

Seth and Jacob see Big Emilio zeroing in on them, Then they see him move his big frame in their direction. Seth turns to Jacob.

Big Emilio walks steadily through the bar like Godzilla walks through Tokyo. Tipping over tables, knocking fighting vamps and humans alike on their asses on his way to stamp out Seth and Jacob. A TRUCKER JUMPS in his path to attack him, with a QUICK SWING of his hand the trucker is brushed aside, receiving a broken neck for the effort.

Big Emilio never breaks his stride or takes his eyes off Seth and Jacob.

Seth and Jacob both grab pieces of wood, holding it like a weapon, but the wood looks puny compared to their opponent.

Big Emilio stands in front of them. The two men hold their wood tight. Fangs grow in Big Emilio's mouth that make him look like a huge walking shark.

Just when Big Emilio's ready to strike, he hears behind him,

Big Emilio turns and sees Sex Machine across the room.

Both Seth and Jacob ATTACK Big Emilio from behind. He effortlessly knocks them away.

They both hit the ground.

Sex Machine gestures with his hand to Big Emilio to "come ahead."

Big Emilio CHARGES towards Sex Machine, like a runaway locomotive.

Sex Machine stands his ground waiting for IMPACT. The two huge men COLLIDE. What follows is literally a war of the Gargantuans. The two mastiffs POUND each other till one buckles. Finally, the one who buckles first is Big Emilio, who HITS the floor.

Once on the floor, Seth and Jacob, stand over the huge vamp, BEATING him with clubs and pipes, like L.A.'s finest. The vamp can do nothing except SQUIRM on the floor from the savage beating.

Jacob and Seth stop.

Sex Machine holds a pool cue in his hand. He SNAPS off the end tip, making it jagged, and like a spear, STICKS it into big vamp's fallen body. Big Emilio, SCREAMS, TWITCHES and dies. The pool cue sticks out straight up from the dead vamp.

Chet Pussy spies Ms. Apple Pie Pussy herself, Kate. He breaks into a lecherous grin and licks the blood from around his mouth.

Kate and Scott are cowering behind the bar when Chet appears over the top. They both let out a scream. Scott goes to protect his sister and receives a punch in the face for his trouble. Chet dives at Kate.

Chet goes to bite Kate, grabbing at her t-shirt, and sees her crucifix. HE recoils backwards. Scott grabs hold of his head from behind. Kate jumps up from the floor, rips off her cross and grabs Chet by his beatnik beard, opening his mouth. She SHOVES the cross inside. Chet's eyes roll up back into his head. Scott SLAPS Chet hard on the back.


Chet has swallowed the crucifix. A SIZZLING sound is heard moving down from his throat to his belly. He opens his mouth and lets out a noise similar to a train whistle. He jumps up from behind the bar, doing a wild dance from pain. He jumps from wall to wall and floor to ceiling, screaming all the while.

Kate and Scott watch him from the bar, mischievous grins on their faces.

Chet is on his knees, arms stretched out, yelling at the top of his lungs like a vamp King Lear.

Chet breaks off a chair leg, muttering to himself.

He plunges the stake into his own heart, but instead of the vampire's cry that escapes from the others upon being staked, Chet lets out a sigh of relief.

By this time there are not too many people left. Most of the vampire have been killed by wooden stakes and most of the customers have been butchered or drained.

All that's left on the vampire side are two naked dancers and two whores. On the human side are Seth, Jacob and his kids, Sex Machine and Frost. Aside from the children, who are hiding behind the bar, all the humans are holding wooden stakes.

The four human men group together. The four female vampires charge, teeth exposed, snarling and dripping with blood. Seth, Jacob, Sex Machine and Frost raise their weapons and slam, almost simultaneously, the four vamps. All four staked bodies hit the floor.

Kate and Scott run from behind the bar to their father's side.

They all stand looking at the horrible carnage that has taken place. The floor is littered with dead bodies.

At that moment a bright flash ERUPTS, illuminating everyone's face. The sound of quick burning flames fills the air. Everybody shields their eyes from the intense light, which lasts only a split second.

It vanishes, along with the bodies of the vampires. All that remains is a smoldering mess of goo where the bodies once lay.

They all stare at the mess for a few seconds and then RUN for the door. It's locked. They BANG on the door, but it's useless. It ain't budging, yet they all go on banging.

Except for Seth. He never ran for the door. He walks over to his dead brother's body and kneels beside it.

He takes his dead hand.

Seth goes to kiss his brother's lips when, RICHARD'S EYES POP OPEN. They're YELLOW. Seth RAISES his head in surprise. Richard GRABS Seth by the front of his shirt and pulls him down to him. Fangs are now exposed. Seth tries to pull away. He SCREAMS for the others to help. Richard PULLS Seth down to striking distance and opens his mouth to take the big bite, when Sex Machine grabs Seth from behind and YANKS him from Richard's grasp. Jacob, Frost and the kids have surrounded Richard and proceed to KICK him and STOMP his head. Sex Machine picks up a chair and SMASHES it against a wall. He picks up one of the chair legs and walks over to where the others are holding Richard down. Richard sees the wood in the biker's hand. He knows what that means. Seth whips out his .45 and points it at Sex Machine.

Jacob, Frost and the kids continue to hold Richard down to the ground.

Seth aims his gun at the group.

Richard's giggling,

Seth, still holding the outstretched gun, takes the stake out of Sex Machine's hand. Seth lowers the .45.

The smile evaporates from Richard's face.

Seth puts the stake over Richard's heart. Using the butt of his .45 like a hammer, he POUNDS the stake into Richard's heart. Richard screams and dies. They all stand around the body as it BURSTS INTO FLAMES and disintegrates into goo. Seth breaks away from the group and walks over to the bar. He grabs a bottle of whiskey and starts downing it. Kate, of all people, walks away from the group and joins Seth at the bar.

Jacob walks over to Seth.

As Jacob has been talking, a sound has started that has grown LOUDER and LOUDER. Jacob stops in mid-sentence to identify it.

Seth puts the bottle in his hand down.


The outside of the Titty Twister is literally covered with hats, CLAWING, FLAPPING, GNAWING, trying like hell to get inside.

Everybody listens to the bats SCRATCHING and clawing all along the walls, the roof and at the front door. Everyone's scared shitless and nobody has the slightest idea what to do next. The door begins to crack and splinter, little claws poke their way through.

Jacob runs to a table top. He grabs it and covers the area the bats are trying to claw through. The others grab other items to help secure and barricade the door.

As the survivors are panickedly boarding up the door and the windows, a DEAD BIKER that the vampires fed on pops open his yellow eyes. He sits up and sees all the furious activity. Everyone's so busy they don't notice their new friend. The dead biker vamp sets his sights on Kate, who's putting a board into place. He springs to his feet and POUNCES on her, just as Sex Machine turns from across the room in her direction.

The biker vamp GRABS Kate from behind. She lets out a scream. The vamp holds her close to him in a bear hug, but she's moving around so much he can't get a clear bite. The others hear the scream and look toward Kate. Sex Machine, Big Emilio's baseball bat in hand, is halfway to the rescue. As the biker vamp opens his mouth to take a juicy bite out of Kate's shoulder, Kate RAMS her head back, hitting the vamp in the mouth and breaking his fangs. He releases her and spits out his teeth just as Sex Machine runs up and SWINGS the baseball bat upside the vamp's head, breaking the bat in two and sending the vamp to the floor. As the vamp lies on the floor seeing stars, Sex Machine grabs one of the broken ends of the bat and SHOVES it in the vamp's heart. He dies and bursts into flames.

At that point, three other dead victims rise to a sitting position. Sex Machine grabs a chair and THROWS it to the ground, breaking it. He grabs the four legs.

The biker has turned into Captain Sex Machine, Vampire Hunter. He stakes two of the vampires as they get to their feet. Both SPEW green blood, scream, die and burst into flames. The third, a trucker vampire wearing a cat cap, SMACKS Sex Machine in the mouth, which sends the biker for a loop.

As CAT CAP runs toward the fallen Sex Machine, Kate JUMPS on his back from behind. Both of them go tumbling into a stack of whiskey cases. Sex Machine runs over and grabs Kate by the hand, pulling her up and out of the way. Cat Cap is lying in a pile of broken bottles and whiskey. SEX MACHINE raises his stake as Cat Cap dies and DRIVES it in the vamp's black heart. Cat Cap dies and bursts into flames, which hits the whiskey, starting a giant fire.

Frost and Jacob stop barricading and run to the fire.

Kate and Sex Machine give each other a high five and go to work STAKING the dead bodies.

Jacob and FROST beat down the fire with their jackets and whatever else is at hand.

A hole begins to appear where a window had been plastered over. Little claws scrape their way through. Scott stands in front of the window.

Seth, who is barricading doors and window, looks in Scott's direction. The hole in the plaster cracks open and out POPS a little, fleshy vampire bat/rat head. The bat/rat, which is SQUEAKING and HISSING its head off, tries to SQUEEZE its body through the newly formed hole.

Seth, gun in hand, RUNS to the window. He points the .45, point-blank range at the head of the bat/rat.

The bat/rat sees this, makes an "oh shit" face, and YANKS his head back through the hole.

Seth was ready to fire, he lowers his gun in bewilderment, when...


The bat/rat BURSTS through the hole, like shot out of a cannon, HITTING Seth in the gut and sending him FLYING, LANDING HARD on his back.

Once Seth hits the ground, the bat-thing (which has the body of a fat rat with a bat's large wingspan) lickity-split RUNS UP Seth's body to his juggler. Seth's hand GRABS the bat's neck, and tries to PUSH it away. But the bat-thing has its CLAWS DUG in Seth's clothes. The bat-thing is just inches from Seth's face. Its mouth is SNAPPING.

Frost leaves Jacob with the fire, comes from behind and GRABS the bat-thing and YANKS it off of Seth.

Sex Machine and Kate are a green, bloody mess from their preventative staking of dead bodies. Sex Machine kneels by a dead body, raising the stake in his hand to spear him. The body SPRINGS UP and bites Sex Machine on the arm. Red blood squirts all over. Sex Machine screams, then brings the stake down in the body's chest. It dies, burns and turns into goo. Sex Machine holds his bit arm and wraps it with a piece of his shirt. He quickly looks around to see if anybody saw him get bit. Nobody saw it, everybody was too busy.

Frost holds the FLAPPING, FIGHTING, SNAPPING bat-thing in front of him at arm's length. He struggles with it for awhile, then...

BASHES its head against the bar. The first bash takes some fight out of the little fucker, so... Frost BASHES his head against the bar six or seven times. He then THROWS the bat-thing on the bar, turns it over, garbs a pencil in a cup next to the register, and RAMS it in the bat-thing's heart. The bat-thing coughs and dies. There's a FLASH of FLAMES, followed by a pile of goo.

Sex Machine and Kate have covered up a hole in the plastered window with a table while Frost, Scott and Seth wrestle with the bat-thing.

Jacob has put out the fire. Everybody comes together, exhausted, and takes a breather. Outside, the bats continue to try and claw their way in.

Everyone mutters "yeah."

Everybody agrees.

Jacob looks at his watch.

Everybody laughs.

Frost and Sex Machine look toward Jacob.

Jacob PUNCHES Seth in the mouth, sending him to the floor. Jacob stands over him.

Seth looks up from the floor.

Seth rises.

Jacob has to laugh at that. So does everybody else. Jacob sticks out his hand and shakes Seth's.

The laughter and good humor passes quickly and the only sound to be heard is that of the bats gnawing and clawing. It immediately reminds the group of the deep, deep shit they're in.

As Frost goes into his monologue, the sound fades out and the camera moves to Sex Machine. He's having a hot flash. He can't hear anything. He's looking at Frost speaking, but he doesn't hear any sound. Then he hears a deep, MALE VOICE say:

"Who the fuck was that?" he thinks to himself. He turns around: nobody's there. No one else in the group seems to hear it, A FEMALE VOICE seductively says:

We hear Sex Machine's thought in a voice answer.

Sex Machine looks at Frost, who's acting out his story. The biker is pantomiming fighting and slashing. He's describing all the while, but we can't hear anything. All we hear are many voices, male, female, children saying:

Sex Machine begins looking at the other members of the group in a thirsty way. He stares at each of their necks, closer and closer until he can see the veins on Frost's neck actually pulsating, throbbing, beckoning to him. Sex Machine has turned into a vampire.

The sound comes back as Frost finishes his story.

Sex Machine lets out a hideous cry.

Frost SCREAMS as Sex Machine grabs hold of him and BITES into his neck.

The group tries to PULL the TWO men apart.

Jacob gets his arm around Sex Machine's neck and tries pulling.

Sex Machine takes his teeth out of the biker's neck and SINKS them in Jacob's arm.

Jacob SCREAMS and lets go.

Seth, Kate and Scott react to Jacob being bit.

Sex Machine GRABS Jacob and TOSSES him effortlessly over the bar, CRASHING into a shelf full of liquor bottles.

Frost HOPS around the room, mad as a hornet,holding his bleeding neck.

Sex Machine PUNCHES Seth in the face, dropping him like a sack of potatoes.

He smacks the shit out of Kate. She goes FLYING into a table.

Sex Machine turns, seeing Frost breaking off a big table leg. Frost looks at the big vamp.

Frost, table leg in hand, RUNS, SCREAMING his head off, straight at Sex Machine.

Sex Machine's nostrils flare. He raises his meaty fist and pulls it back, so he can really haul off.

Frost, top speed, stake raised, screaming. Sex Machine lets loose with his punch, Seth, Scott and Kate look up from the floor. Jacob rises from behind the bar. Frost's face COLLIDES with Sex Machine's fist. SEX MACHINE hits Frost so hard it lifts the biker off the ground and propels him through the air.

Seth sees where Frost is heading and says:

Jacob sees.

Frost, in mid-air, HITS the barricaded, plastered over window and CRASHES through it.

Sex Machine lets loose with a maniacal laugh. Hundreds of bat-things fly into the bar. Seth grabs the two kids by the hand and runs for the back room.

Behind the bar, Jacob grabs two pieces of wood from off the ground.

Ten bat-things are in hot pursuit of Seth, Kate and Scott, who are RUNNING for their lives. They get to the door of the back room, whip it open, dive in and SLAM it behind them. An ugly, fleshy bat-thing manges to get its head caught in the door as it closes. Kate and Scott PUSH on the door as hard as they can. The bat-thing's head, which is inside, screams, howls and snaps in fury.

Seth turns toward the bat/vamp in the door. He sticks his .45 in its big mouth.

He FIRES four shots that blow the bat vamp's head all over the wall.

Kate yells:

She spins and grabs the door knob, ready to fling the door and help her father. Scott grabs her and pushes her up against the wall.

Just then they hear Jacob's voice BOOMING from the bar room.

INT. BAR ROOM - NIGHT Jacob, holding a cross made out of two sticks and reciting appropriate verse from the bible, is keeping the vampires at bay. But, as Seth predicted, it is the shining power of his restored faith that is his mightiest weapon. Jacob is making his way through the vampires, toward the back door. A lot of the bats have transformed into bat/devil/human creatures.

The creatures stand at the edge of Jacob's force field of holiness. Many bat things fly around the bar like mad, whirling dervishes. A cluster of bat-things over above and in front of Jacob. They all growl and hiss at the man of god. For every one step forward Jacob takes, the vampires take one step back. Jacob recites the verse from the bible in a threatening, mean, motherfucking, servant of god tone. As he speaks with authority and strength, he sees Frost lying on the ground, bat-things on him like ants on a candy bar. But Jacob is too much in control to let even this repugnant sight trip him up.

Jacob has backed himself up by the door.

The door FLIES open. Jacob jumps inside. The door SLAMS shut.

Jacob hugs daughter and son. As he hugs them, we see his bloody arm.

When he releases them, they can't help but notice.

Seth explodes, knocking over boxes, busting chairs, tipping over tables and cussing a blue streak.

Seth runs over to the barricaded door and yells to the creatures on the other side.

Kate is crying, she knows what's happened to her father.

Scott and Kate, crying, grab their father and hold on for dear life. Jacob wants to cry, but if he breaks down, the kids will never have the courage for what they must do.

Jacob sees that the back room is pretty damn big and filled with boxes and crates.


The survivors are opening boxes and prying open crates. A lot of what they find is bullshit. Pantyhose, coffee, teddy bears, etc. But a few of the boxes are justwhat the doctor ordered. Cases from a sporting good supplier yield a shipment of baseball bats. Meant to arrive at toy stores are a shipment of Uzi replica squirt guns and a box of balloons. And captured en route to a hardware store are shipments of power tools, saws and jack hammers.

Seth and Scott saw the bats into wooden stakes.

Kate fills the Uzi squirt guns with tap water from the back room sink.

Jacob, with Seth's knife, etches a cross into every bullet in the .45 automatic's last full clip of ammo.

Vampires all start converging on the back room door, getting their courage back.

Kate makes water balloons.

Scott sharpens the stakes to a point with the tools. Seth attaches a wooden stake to the end of a jackhammer.

Jacob blesses the water in the squirt guns and balloons, turning it into holy water.

Our heroes work together, preparing for the battle to come. The back room door, barricaded with crates and boxes, begins to be pounded on by the undead on the other side. The room tone is a combination of chewing, scratching, pounding, squeaking and screaming.

Finally they're ready.

Jacob turns to his kids.

The kids can't say the words.

Jacob doesn't believe them.

Kate doesn't answer. Jacob places the .45 barrel against his temple.

INT. BARROOM - NIGHT The vampires, bat-things and what have you, start BREAKING down the door. They are in a mad frenzy. They burst through the door.

Waiting for them are Scott and Kate holding Uzi squirt guns and water balloons draped down their chests on a belt like grenades. Jacob is holding a cross made of sharp wooden stakes and the .45 with the cross bullets. Seth is holding the jackhammer. The survivors walk out of the back room into the bar. The vamps back up, letting them inside.

What we have here is a Mexican standoff, a la "The Wild Bunch." A moment of peace before the battle. The vamps just watch the humans. The humans just watch the vamps. Then, like the bull in the china shop, Seth ends the peace by starting up the jackhammer.

Jacob holds up the cross, the vamps react.

The kids SPRAY the crowd with UZI fire, burning vampire flesh.

The pack of vamps retreat while the Fuller squad walk forward.

They are attacked on all sides, but they keep moving towards the door.

Seth slams the stakes into several of the vamps, it speeds in and out of vampire chests, each time spraying him in green vamp blood.

Jacob shoves his cross stake into a vampire with one hand and SHOOTS three vampires with blessed bullets with the other.

Flame BURSTS from the vampires' chests when the bullets hit.

Kate and Scott both whip water balloons off their belts and toss them into the crowd.

They burst and FRY several of the vamps, who fall, screaming in pain.

From its perch on a wood ceiling beam, a bat-thing drops and HURLS toward the group.

Jacob sees it, raises his gun and FIRES.

The bat-thing bursts into a ball of screaming fire.

Seth continues carving a path to the front door by slamming the hammer stake into vampire chests.

The front door is barricaded again by a big table and other junk.

Seth tries to get to the front door, when Sex Machine, now a half bat, half devil vamp, about six foot seven, drops from above in front of him. Seth RAMS the stake in its chest. The Sex Machine-thing screams out, LIFTING the hammer and Seth off the ground.

Seth is thrown from his hold on the hammer across the room, He CRASHES into a table.

The Sex Machine-thing falls back with the jackhammer sticking out of his chest, dead.

Kate, spraying Uzi fire like Rambo, sees Seth fall. She screams:

Seth quickly gets up to find himself surrounded by vampires on all sides. With no weapons, he puts up on dukes.

Kate clusters with her father and Scott.

Kate turns into a squirtgun firing, water-balloon throwing, one-woman army, as she breaks from her father and heads in Seth's direction.

Kate mows down the group by Seth, they lie on the floor, burning in agony. Kate takes Seth's hand and gives him a couple of water balloons and a stake.

Cutting through vampires, the two make their way across the bar.

Jacob, firing the .45, takes out several more vampires in fiery death.

Scott fires the Uzi and chucks more water balloons.

As Jacob fights, all of a sudden the sound goes out. He can't hear anything. He wonders if he's gone deaf. He starts to hear the words: "Thirst, thirst, thirst." He notices the vampires have stopped attacking him. They look at him wit happy smiles on their devilish faces. Fangs begin to grow. His eyes are yellow.

Scott turns to his dad. He sees his father is a monster.

Jacob, with a devilish grin on his face, GRABS Scott and sinks his teeth into Scott's forearm. Scott screams bloody murder as his dad begins to drain him of blood.

Scott takes one of the water balloons he's wearing and SMASHES it against Jacob's head.

The holy water melts half of Jacob's face away. He lets go of Scott, screaming, and drops the .45 on the floor.

Scott drops to the ground, picking up the gun. He brings it up to fire.

A totally evil Jacob, with only half a face, matches stares with the boy he once called his son.

Scott's eyes turn to steel.

He FIRES, sending a holy bullet into Jacob's forehead, creating a hole from which fire shoots out. Jacob's entire head bursts into flames, then explodes.

From across the room, Fate sees her daddy ignite. She cries out. In the thick of the battle, Seth yells:

Kate takes his advice and hits a vamp square in the face with a holy water balloon, which melts his head.

A bat-thing lands on the back of Scott's neck. He screams as it bites into him. He drops the .45.

Kate sees Scott get bit.

Another bat-thing lands on Scott's arm and takes a bite. Scott screams.

She goes to spray them when her Uzi runs out of water.

Now seven bat-things are on Scott biting and sucking blood. Scott is in agony.

Kate runs for her brother, does a DIVE and a ROLL, coming up by the .45, SNATCHING it in one motion and FIRING three times.

One... two... three bat-things are hit, shoot flames, then all of them EXPLODE, BLOWING UP Scott.

The remaining vamps approach.

All the humans have left is a few bullets and one holy balloon.

The two survivors are backed up against a wall. Two bat things do a Kamikaze dive from the air toward Seth. Seth throws the holy balloon at them. Direct hit. The two bat-things burst into flames and spiral to the floor.

The two survivors look at the vampires, who stand before them. A moment of stillness before the attack. Kate stands holding the .45, arm outstretched.

The vamps begins to close in. Kate lines up the .45 sights on the face of an approaching vampire.

Seth holds the Uzi like a club, ready to bash in the first vampire's head that gets in swinging distance.

Beams of sunlight shoot through the holes that Kate shot through the wall. Approaching vampires burn. The scorched vamps scream like they've never screamed before.

Kate turns away from the vamps and shoots holes in the wall behind him, Daylight comes through, providing Kate and Seth with a safe, lighted area.

The .45's empty.

The vamps hiss and scream at the frustration of not being able to get at them.

The two survivors hold hands, when...

All of a sudden the door to the Titty Twister is pounded on from the outside.

The vamps look towards it in horror.

From the other side of the door, we hear a voice with a Spanish accent.

Seth signals Carlos to wait a minute while he catches his breath. Then he hauls off and PUNCHES Carlos square in the kisser. Danny and Manny aim their shotguns at.Seth.

Carlos stands up again.

Danny and Manny react to the vampire news by crossing themselves again.

They look at each other., then shake hands, saying in unison.

Seth gets the suitcase and gives Carlos 25%. Seth walks over to a red 1990 Porsche 911.

Seth takes a few stacks of bills from the suitcase.

Seth follows Carlos out of view. CRANE SHOT up to an aerial view of the Titty Twister bar. We see Kate in the Winnebago driving off. As we back behind the bar we see that the back is really an Aztec temple. Evidently the vamps killed off the Aztecs and took over their bar. Rusted trucks are thrown in the pit behind the bar.
