Reicther moves to under the window, he begins to hit the antlerís together. We see Brian turn around quickly he then turns around again playing the game again. Several moments of Reicther hitting the sticks together pass by. WILL Hey guys lets hurry up this prank! Brian and Tyler turn around, Reicther starts cracking up.

BRIAN Dude itís getting old, I get it Iím fat. JOEL Hey look. Joel points offscreen and the camera follows his finger, we see Reictherís field is very foggy. BROCK Oooooh if this were one of my dreams and army of aliens would be coming out of there right about now. Will hands the camera to Brian. BRIAN Where are you going? WILL To look for the aliens. Will runs into the field. REICTHER Iíll go get a flashlight so we can explore it. Reicther goes into the house, the camera focuses on Will running, zooming in on him, he trips and it looks like he falls in a pit from the view of the camera. Will runs back. WILL Something moved!! Everyone starts laughing. Reicther comes back with a flashlight. REICTHER Who wants to go within the mist with me? JOEL I'll go. WILL Me too. TYLER Iím going. REICHER What about you Brock?

BROCK No I feel like Iíll see tall figures appear out of there any second. The camera focuses on the fog. BRIAN Yeah I can see that happening. BROCK Uh, where did they go? BRIAN Oh shit, come on. Brian and Brock walk a little into the fog, when they can see faint outlines of them they stop. BROCK Uh-oh. BRIAN What?

WILL I'm definitely in. JOEL Yeah Iím in if every one else is. TYLER Iíll go. BROCK Hell no. REICTHER Come on Brock weíll even bring protection. Reicther pulls a pair of nun chucks out of a drawer. BRIAN There mine! REICTHER All right Reicther hands Brian the nun chucks and pulls out a pocket knife from his pocket. REICTHER Here Brock BROCK No way man! JOEL Brock what would be scarier, going out there with all of us, or staying here all alone by your self. Brock is silent a moment. BROCK Ok... TYLER Iím bringing this! He has a paint ball gun in his hand WILL Iíll man the camera REICTHER Iíll use the mini shovel, what about you Joel? JOEL If it isnít a ghost I can bring it Down. Every one murmurs in agreement REICHER Ok letís go! INT. REICTHER'S BACKYARD - SAME Every one is there armed, we are seeing though night vision again. REICTHER Maybe we should split up. BRIAN Ok Reicther you go out there an we'll all stay here. They start walking out in the field every one is on edge. REICTHER (whisper) No one say anything unless itís absolutely necessary, and try to be careful when you walk. Everyone is extremely quiet as they walk through the Field. BRIAN (whisper) Maybe we should go closer to the woods. REICHER (whisper) Yeah good idea They start heading towards the thick treeís, they stop near where they were before when they heard the sound. WILL (whisper) This is the spot Everyone nods in agreement, suddenly they hear a slight rustling in the woods, Brock looks in the direction with wide eyes, Brian starts spinning the nun chucks. He does this for a few seconds, before realizing that everyone is staring. WILL (whisper) Calm down there, Bruce Lee. They are all quiet for a moment, then Joel motions for Tyler and Brian. JOEL (whisper) Brian, ditch the chucks, you donít know how to use them. Brian hands them to Brock, making sure the chain doesnít clank together. JOEL (whisper) Ok, Brian, me an you are the two strongest guys here, me and you should go into the woods, Tyler you cover us Tyler nods and gets ready with the gun. BRIAN (whisper) Your lucky I owe you Joel smiles, he and Brian start into the woods. It is silent a moment, then we can hear a loud rustling, and what seems to be some one falling down. We then hear a punch thrown and a groan. JOEL You bastard! BROCK Oh shit they got Brian! BRIAN No Iím fine JOEL Yeah but I know some one that wonít be. They are dragging Casey by the ankles, we then see Chris come out of the woods too. CASEY I give I give! CHRIS Sorry guys but you guys are so easy to scare. CASEY Come on guys have a heart! They all glare at him. TYLER Hey I got an idea! INT.

Tyler also is wearing a mask and Brian and Reicther have guns to their sides. REICTHER Casey Jennings...you are to be executed by a firing squad CASEY Why isnít Chris taped to a tree? WILL That would be a hate crime. CASEY Crap. Reicther holds up his hand, then drops it REICTHER Fire One round. Joel, Will and Tyler all shoot him once, all the shots hit him in the chest.
