INT. BLACKNESS

 

FADE IN:

INT. BLACKNESS

There is POUNDING and KICKING.

RYAN (O.S.)

What…?

Louder POUNDING and KICKING.

RYAN (O.S.)

Hey!

We hear the sound of someone crawling on a wet surface.

RYAN (O.S.)

(Panicked)

I’m st… heeeeeey! Somebody!

DR. ALTMAN (O.S.)

No need to shout, Ryan.

RYAN (O.S.)

Who’s there?

A beat.

RYAN (O.S.)

Hello?

DR. HAUSMAN (O.S.)

Still here.

RYAN (O.S.)

What’s going on?!

More POUNDING.

DR. ALTMAN (O.S.)

It’ll come to you soon. Now, try to calm down. It’ll be over soon enough.

RYAN (O.S.)

What? Get me out of here! What is this place?!

A bright, egg-shaped CIRCLE OF LIGHT moves slowly from the bottom of the frame to the center. A muffled ROARING SOUND emanates from the egg.

DR. ALTMAN (O.S.)

Okay, here it comes. Try to breathe.

RYAN (O.S.)

Jesus, what the hell’s that?

The bright circle grows bigger for two seconds; then it stops.

DR. ALTMAN (O.S.)

Breathe, Ryan. Breathe.

Ryan pants; the circle gets bigger and the roaring louder.

RYAN (O.S.)

Stop Pushing!

The circle of light grows until it covers the whole frame. A bright, foggy image begins to appear. Two HANDS in rubber gloves materialize. The hands expand towards the camera, which shows Ryan’s P.O.V. The loud, ominous roars transform into the SCREAMS of a woman.

DR. ALTMAN (O.S.)

I see the head. Keep breathing, keep breathing.

RYAN (O.S.)

Oh, my God!

DR. ALTMAN (O.S.)

Mary, I’m going to count to three and I want you to push again.

MARY (O.S.)

(Simultaneously with Ryan)

No!

DR. ALTMAN (O.S.)

Mary…
