The Interrogation




A woman wakes up bloody and bound to a chair in a dark room, standing over her is a Man with an unfamiliar face who plans on doing her harm.


INT. GARAGE - NIGHT


Its dark. That is until a light is turned on. We discover ALEX sitting in a chair. Zip-ties around her wrist and feet attached to the Arms and legs of the chair. A blindfold covers her eyes, a cloth covering her mouth and a slightly bloody contusion on the right side of her forehead. Her body illuminated by glowing red light which is coming from a bulb on a string just above her head.


A MAN enters and makes his way toward Alex and removes the Blindfold and the cloth in her mouth.


ALEX

Let me go.


JOHN

Not until you tell me why you were snooping around my place.


She stays silent.

John leans in closer to her.


JOHN (CONT’D)

You have no idea where you’re at or what I’m capable of. I suggest you start talking before I start to make things more uncomfortable for you.


She continues to stay silent.


JOHN (CONT’D)

Suit yourself.


He turns in the other direction and walks toward a wall that has knives and other torture devices attached to it. He grabs one from the shelf.


ALEX

My bag.


He turns back to face her.


ALEX (CONT’D)

Inside you’ll find an explanation for everything.


John puts down the knife and makes his way toward her bag. He opens it and pulls out a folder. Inside is filled with Pictures of a MAN and WOMAN.


He flips through.


JOHN

What is this?


ALEX

I was hired to follow that woman around in the picture. Do you recognize her?


JOHN

That’s my wife.


ALEX

I gather she’s been having an affair with the gentleman in the picture for months.


JOHN

I don’t understand. Who would hire you to take these pictures?


ANNA shows up behind him.


ANNA

I did in hopes that she would discover what this place really is.

Anna turns on one more light. Terror intensifies on the face of Alex as she now can see a COLLAGE of pictures of missing women and other things around the room the give light to what type of place she’s in.


JOHN

But how...


ANNA

I followed you. One night after you left I entered in here and discovered a lady, she was all bloody and bound in the same way as her.

John is in grief. He’s a bit beside himself as he tries to figure out his next move.


JOHN

Oh I wish you hadn’t followed me here.


He walks back over toward where the knives are but Anna gets there first. She pulls the biggest one.


ANNA

Back up.


John puts up his hands.


ANNA (CONT’D)

Over there.


John backs up back toward the door.

Anna keeps her eyes on him the whole time as she makes her way toward Alex.

She begins to cut away the zip ties.


John watches until the last one is cut and Anna’s helping Alex out of the chair.

The two girls here a DOOR SLAM and turn to see that John has exited.


They quickly make there way toward the AUTOMATIC GARAGE DOOR OPENER. Continuously pressing it but nothing happens.


ANNA (CONT’D)

Its not opening.


ALEX

What do you mean?


ANNA

Look. It doesn’t work.


ALEX

He must of cut the power.


ANNA

What do we do now?


ALEX

I don’t know let me think.


Anna starts hyperventilating.


ALEX (CONT’D)

You’ve gotta stay calm.


Alex looks around and thinks.


ALEX (CONT’D)

The only way out is by going through the house.


ANNA

No. But what if he’s in there somewhere waiting for us?


Alex thinks for a second.


ALEX

We have no other choice.


ANNA

No.


Anna gets more emotional.


Alex makes her way toward Anna.


ALEX

(calm)

Look at me. We have no other choice. We can do this. You can do this but you’ve gotta stay calm. Okay.


Anna nods YES.


ALEX (CONT’D)

Ok.


Alex makes her way over toward the wall and grabs a knife.


She makes her way back over to Anna.


ALEX (CONT’D)

Once we’re inside. Do you know the quickest way to the door.


Anna nods YES. She points.


ANNA

Its literally right there.


ALEX

Ok so its just a couple steps. We got this.


Alex looks at the door.


ALEX (CONT’D)

Wait. Before we go in I just need to know why’d you pick me?


ANNA

I don’t know. Can we just do this if we’re gonna do this.


ALEX

You’re right....Follow me.


Alex opens the door. It's pitch black inside.


The two ladies exit the garage through the house.
