NIGHT. ESTABLISHING.
24HRS BEFORE THE DEATH OF
SANDRA HUGHES(subtitle)

INT. GARETH'S BEDROOM. CONTINUOUS.

GARETH, a 30 year old man, is getting ready to go out, his
girlfriend SANDRA Hughes, is sat on the bed waiting for him
to get ready. She is in her mid 20's.

There is loud music coming round from the adjacent room.

SANDRA
Come on Gareth! The tables booked
for seven thirty!

GARETH
(Fixing his hair in the
mirror)
I'll just be ten minutes Sandra,
just got to do my hair.

SANDRA
Gareth, how many ways can you do
that silly flick of hair?

GARETH
(Hurt)
What do you mean?

The bedroom door swings open and Gareth's flat mate Stanley
Bates, who's known as BATESEY dances into the room only
wearing his pants, singing into a brush.

Batesey, is an overweight 30 year old.

BATESEY
(Singing to the music)

GARETH
Batesey! What the hell!

Batesey ignores Gareth and carries on singing and dancing.

GARETH (CONT'D)
Put some clothes on!

BATESEY
(Stops dancing and turns
to see Sandra)
Oh... She's here.

GARETH
Yes, so could you put something on
apart from your pants?

BATESEY
You're right mate, I'm probably
making her hot.

SANDRA
Sick, I think you mean Stanley.

BATESEY
(Starts to dance)
Yeah I'm sic.

Sandra forces a smile back.

GARETH
Maybe we should go.

BATESEY
Yeah I think you're right mate.

SANDRA
No, he's coming out with me
tonight, to a restaurant.

Gareth grimaces.

BATESEY
Well that's funny, because he! Is
going out clubbing with me tonight!
And unless he's some kind of X-Man,
who can be in two places at once...
Which he's not, cause being his
best mate I'd know things like
that... It looks like you're on
your own tonight Sandra.

GARETH
Batesey...

BATESEY
(Turns to Gareth)
Its cool mate. I'll leave you two
on your own... so you can break it
to her gently.

GARETH
Batesey I'm really sorry mate, I
meant to tell you.

BATESEY
What?! Tonight's boys night!

GARETH
Hey, I know. We could do a curry
night tomorrow instead?

BATESEY
(Gestures to his
underpants)
But I'm wearing my lucky pants.

SANDRA
Oh my God.

BATESEY
Well, I suppose I might as well
turn the music off now.

GARETH
Mate!

SANDRA
You pathetic fat tosser!

BATESEY
Takes one to know one Sandra!

Batesey storms out of the room.

BATESEY (O.S.) (CONT'D)
I hope you enjoy your bone tonight
Sandra!

Sandra and Gareth look at each other confused.

BATESEY (O.S.) (CONT'D)
I mean like you'll be eating a bone
at the restaurant tonight!

EXT. A BLOCK OF FLATS IN LONDON. SUNDAY MORNING.
ESTABLISHING.
8HRS BEFORE SANDRA HUGHES' DEATH (Subtitle)

INT. GARETH AND BATESEY'S LIVING ROOM. CONTINUOUS.

Gareth has a makeshift bed made up on the sofa and is trying
to sleep, whilst Batesey is sat next to the sofa playing a
football game on his games console.

BATESEY
Come on, get up you fag!

GARETH
I'm asleep.

BATESEY
People who are asleep don't talk.

GARETH
I'm depressed! Just let me sleep.

BATESEY
You're still depressed!?

GARETH
I got dumped last night Batesey, I
think I'm entitled to feel a little
down.

BATESEY
If you're a five year old.

GARETH
Whatever.

BATESEY
(Focused on his game)
Go on, go on. He might just do it
you know! Ooooohhhh! Batesey's
unbelievable!

Batesey jumps up and runs round the living room with his
shirt over his head, celebrating a goal he scored on his
game.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
What was that Gareth?

No response from Gareth.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
I know. I probably am the best
player of FIFA in the country but
please, stop going on about it.

GARETH
Grow up.

BATESEY
(Returns to playing his
game)
Batesey! Batesey!

Gareth puts his head under his pillow.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
(Sitting down by the sofa
again)
Gareth.

No response form Gareth.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
Gareth, there's something you

really need to see.

GARETH
I'm asleep.

BATESEY
It's important. If you want to know
the truth, I'm a bit embarrassed
showing you.

GARETH
I'm not feeling your testicles
again, that was not a lump.

BATESEY
That was one time! And I can't
believe you'd compare this to that!

GARETH
(Sitting up)
What?

BATESEY
(Pressing a button on his
console)
Look at this bloody goal!

GARETH
That's it, I'm going to give you
such a slap!

Gareth jumps out off the sofa and puts Batesey in a head
lock.

BATESEY
Gareth, Gareth! There's something
you should consider before getting
physical with me!

Batesey let's out large fart.

GARETH
Ah! You disgusting git! I don't
know about your testicles, you
should go to the doctors about a
smell like that!

BATESEY
(Worried)
Do you think so?

GARETH
(Getting up)
Oh my God! I need a shower.

EXT. UP MARKET LOOKING HOUSE. MOMENTS LATER. ESTABLISHING.

INT. JEZZA'S BEDROOM. CONTINUOUS.

JEZZA, is an athletically built good looking man who's lying
in bed next to Sandra.

Their clothes are strewn over the floor.

SANDRA
That was the best night I've ever
had!

JEZZA
If I had a penny for every time I'd
heard that line.

SANDRA
Dumping Gareth, was the best thing
I've ever done!

JEZZA
(Concerned)
What? You dumped him?

SANDRA
Well obviously! I'm here!

JEZZA
(Getting out of bed)
I don't remember you saying that
last night.

SANDRA
Well, I thought it was kind of
obvious.

JEZZA
I'm not sure about that... Didn't
you say you had work later?

SANDRA
It's alright I can hang around for
a while.

JEZZA
Well, I've got quite a busy
morning. I mean the boys are bound
to be here soon to pick me up for
footy. Maybe you should think about
hitting the road?

Sandra looks disappointed.

INT. GARETH AND BATESEY'S LIVING ROOM. CONTINUOUS.

Batesey is sat in front of the TV, looking through different
video games to play. Gareth is in the shower.

BATESEY
(Looking at a video game
case)
Ah I forgot about you, The Deadly
Face Off!

Batesey puts the disc into his console and picks up a toy gun
which came with the game.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
(Holding gun up)
The name's Bond, Batesey Bond!

Batesey quickly turns to his side, pretending someone is
stood next to him.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
What was that? You said I was a fat
tosser?

Waits for a response.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
(Points the gun at an
imaginary adversary)
Really... Are you sure about that?

Waits for a response.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
(Pretending to shoot his
gun)
Have some of that! Bang! Bang!
Bang! Oh you want me to stop now?
Okay. Okay.

Batesey glares at his imaginary adversary.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
Bang!

VOICE FROM THE TV
Welcome to The Deadly Face Off.

Batesey turns his attention to the TV and presses a button on
his console.

VOICE FROM THE TV (CONT'D)
You have selected hard difficulty.

Batesey turns the volume down.

VOICE FROM THE TV (CONT'D)
You have selected easy difficulty.

The TV suddenly goes off and on and the lights in the room
flicker.

BATESEY
What the hell?

VOICE FROM THE TV
In game.

There is suddenly a large banging sound coming from a walk in
cupboard, next to the TV.

BATESEY
(Staring confused at the
cupboard door)
Is that you Gareth?

More loud banging.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
What you doing in the cupboard you
anus?

More knocking from the cupboard, Batesey gets up and opens
the cupboard door.

A large man is in the cupboard, holding a large gun.

The man is a cyborg robot called THE SILENCER, and has been
brought into being from the game.

THE SILENCER
I am the cyborg robot called The
Silencer. You have now entered The
Deathly Face Off.

BATESEY
Pardon me?

THE SILENCER
I am now going to cause you some
serious pain.

BATESEY
(Shocked)
Did you say pain or shame?

THE SILENCER
Serious terminal pain.

BATESEY
Ah, I thought that's what you said.

THE SILENCER
You have five minutes to...

BATESEY
Oh is that the time, I better be
off then!

Batesey slams shut the cupboard door, pressing his body
against it to keep it shut.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
Gareth!

GARETH (O.S.)
What!

BATESEY
There's a cyborg robot in the
cupboard!

GARETH (O.S.)
What? What did you just say?

BATESEY
And he's in a bloody filthy mood!

GARETH
What!?

BATESEY
Can you come out the shower a
minute!!! Cause, someone must have
really annoyed him! For some reason
he's thinking about taking it all
out on me!

GARETH
What!?

BATESEY
He said he was going to give me
some serious pain and you not I'm
not good with pain!

Gareth walks into the room, towel drying his hair.

GARETH
What are you going on about?

BATESEY
Now Gareth, I want you to be honest
with me. Rack your brains. Have you
been to any novelty shops recently?

GARETH
What are you going on about?

BATESEY
I don't know, maybe you got
yourself a really crazy cyborg
robot piggy bank or something?

GARETH
What?

BATESEY
So that's a no then. Great.

GARETH
Have you gone mental?

BATESEY
Gareth, you need to remain calm.

Gareth shrugs.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
(Says quickly)
There is a big bloody cyborg robot
in the cupboard!

GARETH
Batesey, what are you on? There's
nothing in the cupboard. Come out
of the way.

BATESEY
Gareth, you are not ready for
what's behind this door.

GARETH
Open the door.

Batesey pulls the door and dives behind the sofa.

GARETH (CONT'D)
Oh my God!

BATESEY
(From behind the sofa)
What! I told you! You're for it now
you butt muncher!

GARETH
Oh God! You're right it's too
horrible.

Batesey looks up from behind the sofa.

GARETH (CONT'D)
What are your underpants doing
hanging up in the cupboard again?

BATESEY
Where's The Silencer?

GARETH
Did he put your pants in here?

BATESEY
Oh ha, ha. I'm telling you, I just
put this video game on and this
robot comes right out of the game
and into our cupboard!

Gareth shakes his head and walks towards the bedroom.

GARETH
Right, Ok. I'm just going to get
some breakfast. That is unless he's
not moved to the kitchen cupboard.

BATESEY
Well, how would he fit in there?

GARETH
(Shakes head)
Jesus.

Batesey checks the cupboard again.

EXT. UP MARKET LOOKING HOUSE. MOMENTS LATER. ESTABLISHING.

Sandra dressed in her previous nights outfit, closes the door
to the house and walks up the path.

SANDRA
What a prick!

Sandra storms down the road.

INT. GARETH AND BATESEY'S LIVING ROOM. MOMENTS LATER.

Batesey is sat on the sofa starring at the cupboard door
holding his gun from the video game, Gareth walks in from his
bedroom.

GARETH
Right, you up for that curry later?

Batesey doesn't respond and continues to stare at the
cupboard.

GARETH (CONT'D)
What's wrong.

BATESEY
I don't know, maybe I'm a little
concerned by the fact a cyborg
robot might step out of the
cupboard and shoot me.

GARETH
You're mental.

BATESEY
Easy for you to say, he's clearly
identified me as the only threat in
this flat.

A loud banging suddenly comes from the cupboard.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
It's back!

GARETH
What is that?

BATESEY
Don't worry Gareth, it's bound to
be my underpants again!

GARETH
Right that's it!

Gareth opens the cupboard door and reveals The Silencer stood
there aiming his gun at him.

GARETH (CONT'D)
Oh my God.

THE SILENCER
Player! You must now choose!

GARETH
(Shocked)
Batesey..

BATESEY
Wait a minute, how did he know I'm
a player?

GARETH
Batesey what is..

THE SILENCER
Fat Man you must decide.

BATESEY
Fat Man?!

The Silencer pushes past Gareth and approaches Batesey.

THE SILENCER
Fat Man, you must decide; will you
battle me or let me go after the
person you hold most dear?

BATESEY
Did you just call me Fat Man?

THE SILENCER
You must either battle me or the
person you hold most dear will be
silenced!

BATESEY
So you're giving me a choice?

THE SILENCER
You must decide!

BATESEY
Err let me think, serious pain or
option two? Um... Definitely the
one I hold most dear.

THE SILENCER
The one you hold most dear? This
has never happened before... Must
compute.

GARETH
I better warn the pizza delivery
man!

BATESEY
Funny, I actually got this covered.

Batesey turns to Gareth.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
(Whispers)
I don't hold anyone most dear.

THE SILENCER
There is a system error.

BATESEY
You bet you arse there is!

THE SILENCER
New target found via Gareth Jackson
brain scan.

GARETH
What! What did he just say?

BATESEY
So, just so I'm clear you are now
not going to cause me serious pain?

THE SILENCER
New target acquired Sandra Hughes.

GARETH
What? Oh God no! Not Sandra!

BATESEY
Cool, you can take that skank down.

The Silencer walks back into the cupboard.

GARETH
Sandra!

EXT. BUST STOP NEAR JEZZAS HOUSE. LATER

A bus pulls up at the bus stop and Sandra gets on.

INT. BUS. CONTINUOUS.

SANDRA
Town please.

BUS DRIVER
I'll take you where ever you want
to go honey.

Sandra takes a ticket.

SANDRA
I'm a bit out of your league! But
thanks for the offer.

Sandra walks away to take a seat.

BUS DRIVER
Hold up! You should see me out on a
Friday night luv, I look well fit.

SANDRA
Loser.

The rest of the passengers turn to look at the driver.

BUS DRIVER
Another lesbian.

INT. GARETH AND BATESEY'S LIVING ROOM. MOMENTS LATER.

Batesey and Gareth are having a beer on the sofa.

GARETH
I can't believe it.

BATESEY
I know. I could have got my arse
kicked there. There should be some
kind of warning on that game.

GARETH
You've just sent a psychotic robot
after my ex-girlfriend!

BATESEY
(Grins)
Yeah baby, high five!

GARETH
You have no idea do you?

BATESEY
Yeah I do, you dump Gareth
Jackson... You get silenced for
ever biatch!

GARETH
Sandra does not deserve to die.

BATESEY
She dumped you man, you should be
well pleased!

GARETH
I love her.

BATESEY
Oh my God!

GARETH
We can't do nothing, what are we
going to do?

BATESEY
(picking up a console
controller)
FIFA?

GARETH
I've got to save her Batesey.

Gareth gets up and puts his coat on.

BATESEY
Are you having a laugh?

GARETH
No.

BATESEY
How are you going to stop a killer
cyborg?

GARETH
I don't know, I haven't worked that
out yet.

BATESEY
Oh well that makes a lot of sense.

GARETH
I've got to do something.

BATESEY
Right Mr Selfish, I suppose I'm
going to have to come with you
then.

Batesey starts to get ready.

GARETH
You've done enough already, you can
stay here.

BATESEY
(Holding up his console's
gun and a light sabre)
I'm the only one packing round
here.

GARETH
Great.

BATESEY
I've got dibs on the light sabre
though.

EXT. TOWN CENTRE. LATER

The bus pulls over at a bus stop.

INT. BUS. CONTINUOUS

Sandra walks off the bus.

SANDRA
Thank you.

The bus driver turns to an elderly passenger, sat at the
front of the bus.

BUS DRIVER
She'd be gagging for it, if she saw
me out on the town.

Elderly passenger shakes their head.

EXT. STREET. LATER

Gareth is walking at pace up the street, with Batesey lagging
behind.

GARETH
Come on! Speed Up! We need to get
to Sandra's.

BATESEY
Why are we heading there?

GARETH
Psychotic robot, trying to kill
her..?

BATESEY
Yes, I known, but I doubt she'll be
back from Jezza's..

Gareth stops.

GARETH
Why would she be at Jezza's?

BATESEY
Sorry you're right... I'm being
stupid, we better get to Sandra's.

GARETH
Did Sandra stay at Jezza's last
night?

BATESEY
What? What are you talking about?

GARETH
Batesey...

BATESEY
She's a slutbag Gareth! I have been
trying to tell you for ages!

GARETH
She spent the night with Jezza the
night we split up?

BATESEY
Total slutbag whore, I'm not
surprised.

Gareth turns and starts walking the other way.

GARETH
That's it! I'm going home!

BATESEY
That's more like it. We could stop
for a curry on the way.

Gareth turns back round.

GARETH
I need a pint!

BATESEY
There we go, now you're talking
sense.

GARETH
I can't believe she'd do that.

BATESEY
I can.

GARETH
You've always had something against
her haven't you?

BATESEY
Err earth to Gareth, she's just
dumped you and got with Jezza on
the same night.

GARETH
She's obviously just confused.

BATESEY
Confused... but strangely horny it
would seem.

INT. JEZZA'S BEDROOM. CONTINUOUS.

Jezza is asleep in bed.

A knocking comes from his cupboard.

JEZZA
Sandra? Are you still here?

The knocking gets louder and Jezza sits up.

JEZZA (CONT'D)
Please don't say you're still here.

The knocking gets louder.

EXT. PARK BENCH. LATER.

Batesey and Gareth are sat on a park bench.

BATESEY
Come on we're almost at the pub.

GARETH
I need a moment to think.

BATESEY
Is that not what pubs are for?

GARETH
So you think this robot came from
your game some how?

BATESEY
I don't know, I suppose so?

GARETH
Where did you even get that game
from?

BATESEY
I got it from Stumpy.

GARETH
Who?

BATESEY
You know, Stumpy Knowles?

Gareth shrugs.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
Blagie Bones mate.

GARETH
Who?

BATESEY
Gonzo's neighbour.

GARETH
Who are these people you're talking
about?

BATESEY
See! This is what happens when you
go off with a bird and stop going
down the pub.

GARETH
Maybe we should find this Stumpy
guy, he might know more about this
game.

BATESEY
I bet he's down the pub.

INT. JEZZA'S BEDROOM. MOMENTS LATER.

Jezza is in bed and a loud knocking comes from the cupboard.

JEZZA
Oh come on! Sandra this isn't
funny, go home!

Jezza gets up and opens the cupboard door and The Silencer is
stood there.

THE SILENCER
Where is Sandra?

JEZZA
What the hell? Is that you Gareth?

THE SILENCER
Will you assist me and tell me
where the one called Sandra Hughes
is?

JEZZA
No Gareth I won't and I think you
better grow up and get the hell out
of my cupboard.

THE SILENCER
Then I must end you.

JEZZA
Yeah, I'm going to kick your arse
in a minute if you don't get out my
cupboard!

THE SLIENCER
It is time to cause some serious
pain.

The Silencer loads his gun.

JEZZA
Oh no, don't shoot me with your toy
gun Gareth.

THE SILENCER
Its not a gun, its a laser saw, so
I can remove your head.

EXT. THE ROSE PUB. LATER.

INT. THE ROSE PUB. CONTINUOUS.

Batesey and Gareth walk into the pub.

BATESEY
Grub and a beer, just what the
doctor ordered.

GARETH
We haven't got time to eat.

BARMAN
Are you guys eating?

BATESEY
Yes, two burger and chips and a
couple of beers John.

GARETH
We haven't got time to eat.

BATESEY
How the hell are we expected to
think on an empty stomach.

The barman looks confused.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
We'll be sat over there John.

Batesey and Gareth sit down at a table.

BATESEY (CONT'D)
Hey there's Stumpy.

Batesey points towards a man in a wheelchair, with dreadlocks
and a leather jacket on.

GARETH
The guy in the wheelchair?

BATESEY
Yeah, how do you not know Stumpy?

Stumpy comes over to the table.

STUMPY
Hey here he is! I thought you'd be
still in bed after the amount you
drunk last night!

BATESEY
No mate I was up with the birds.

STUMPY
Yeah but which one?

BATESEY
Good one!

STUMPY
Nah, I'm joking! He couldn't get a
bird!

BATESEY
Yeah good one! Like I couldn't get
a bird!

STUMPY
Let's be honest, you probably
couldn't.

BATESEY
Yeah good one, Stump you know
Gareth don't you?

STUMPY
Nah.

GARETH
(offering his hand to
shake)
Hi, Gareth.

Stumpy stands up to shake his hand.

STUMPY
Nice to meet you bud.

GARETH
God, you don't need to get up!

STUMPY
What? Oh you think I can't walk!

GARETH
(Confused)
Well..

STUMPY
Nah, I'm only in the wheelchair for
the bitches!

Batesey nods in a agreement.

GARETH
Right, of course.

STUMPY
The bitches go crazy for guys with
wheels, they can't get enough. They
bloody love it!

GARETH
Really.

STUMPY
You should try it, bitches be
crawling all over you.

GARETH
No, I've got a girlfriend thank
you, well we're taking a break at
the moment...

BATESEY
Sandra Hughes.

STUMPY
What that skank hoe!

GARETH
Excuse me?

BATESEY
Anyway Stump... I wanted to catch
you to talk to you about that game
you sold me.

A barman arrives with the food they ordered.

BARMAN
There you go guys.

BATESEY
Nice one.

Batesey and Gareth start to eat and Stumpy takes a handful of
chips off Gareth's plate and starts eating, to Gareth's
annoyance.

STUMPY
What about it?

BATESEY
Is there anything you forgot to
tell me about the game?

Stumpy stares at the ceiling for a moment.

STUMPY
Well there was something. But, I
didn't want to worry you or nothing

GARETH
What?

Stumpy tears a chunk off Gareth's burger and starts eating
it.

GARETH (CONT'D)
(Annoyed)
Do you want me to order you some
food?

STUMPY
Nah, you good, I'll just scrounge
bits off yours.

GARETH
(Annoyed)
Oh good.

STUMPY
Anyways. Apparently this last owner
of this game... Well he got all
shot up and stuff.

GARETH
Shot up, by a gun?

STUMPY
(Taking a handful of chips
from Gareth's plate)
Yeah normally how it happens.

BATESEY
Well that can happen from time to
time.

STUMPY
Yeah but, so the story goes, the
shop he bought the game from went
up in flames the week before.

GARETH
How did you hear this?

STUMPY
Some guys were talking about it,
down here a few weeks back, when I
showed them the game. Said it was
all over the Internet, so I checked
it out when I got home and they
were right it was.

BATESEY
Really?

STUMPY
Not only that bro, this crap was
going on all across the globe.
Stories about this game from
anywhere from Korea to the States
man.

GARETH
So you decided to sell it to
Batesey?

STUMPY
Yeah, I just wanted to get well
rid.

BATESEY
Stump, this game's trying to kill
us.

STUMPY
Really, so the rumours were right!

GARETH
So it would seem.

BATESEY
Stumpy, what are we going to do?

STUMPY
You'll be alright. If it is the
game, just read the instructions.

GARETH
What did the instructions say?

BATESEY
Oh come on, only a right bandit
reads instructions Gareth.

A group of women walk up to the table.

LADIES
Stumpy, don't leave us alone.

STUMPY
Ladies, ladies, sorry guys there's
no rest for the wicked.

The women wheel Stumpy away.

BATESEY
What a legend.

GARETH
What a git more like.

INT. POLICE STATION. LATER.

DS Hartley is sat behind his desk reading a newspaper, when
DC Jones hurries in.

DC JONES
Just got a call Guv, from uniform.

DS HARTLEY
(Annoyed)
God, what now?

DC JONES
Some bloke has been found by his
neighbour decapitated.

DS HARTLEY
Great another YouTube wanna be.

DC JONES
YouTube Guv?

DS HARTLEY
Just another idiot looking for
their five minutes of fame. You
know the type, stupid stunts in
front of a video camera.
Skate board down some steps and
fall off dramatically or chop your
own head off.

DC JONES
You think he might have done it to
himself?

DS HARTLEY
Five minutes of fame, I'm telling
you Jones. I'm sure it will all
seem worthwhile to him when he's in
tomorrows newspaper.

DC JONES
If you think so Sarge.

DS HARTLEY
(Grudgingly puts on his
jacket)
I'll tell you another thing, I bet
when we get down there, we bump
straight into his mates that were
filming him.

DC JONES
If there were others involved Guv,
I reckon they would have done a
runner.

DS HARTLEY
No, not these freaks Jones. As soon
as they see the police there they
won't be able to keep away, mark my
words. I bet two of these adrenalin
junkies turn up, as soon as we get
there, saying they were just
popping round to see their good
mate.

INT. THE ROSE PUB. LATER.

BATESEY
What now?

GARETH
We need to get to get going.

BATESEY

So the script, the version above is designed for a 4 to 6 part series though it is available as one full feature. The humour in my scripts has been described as Simon pegg like, personally I'm not sure. I can say all my work is based on my experiences from when I was younger (though not the killer cyborg!) and the people I have met over the years who have made me smile. I can guarantee you three things to my scripts; firstly they have been written for a small budget, secondly for a small cast and last (but most importantly) full of belly laughs. :0)

Wow - I'm loving this! I pictured the two main characters as Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and I can totally see the similar style of humour. :)
