BlackOut (2024) Movie Script

- Come on, come on.
Get up, come on!
Come on.
- Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Have mercy, no!
- My God!
May this sacrifice appease
the hunger of the Beast!
- Please, have mercy!
I beg you.
- Your sacrifice can
lead to our liberation.
You can save many many people.
- Sigga!
Don't do it, I beg you!
Don't do it, Sigga!
Please no.
- God, let my path be
filled with your glory.
I seek to regain your love,
I seek your forgiveness.
Help me quell the
desire for revenge.
God, give me the strength
when I set foot
inside those walls
to ward off the evil
that resides within.
- No, Sigga!
Stop, no, no, no.
No, no, no.
- Good day
friends, se you tomorrow
always here, same usual time!

News I am Lupo Libassi
and here are today's news:
The tug-of-war between
the US and Chinese heads
of state continues
over the adoption of digital
currency in free trade.
President Spengler and the
Chinese Chien-Shiung Wu
could reach an agreement
on overseas financing
with a single currency.
"It could be a turning point
for a more sustainable
global economy,"
says German Chancellor Windaus,
who is pushing for the agreement
to be discussed at the G8,
involving the world's
most powerful entities
in what could be the
new economic revolution.
Hideki Yukawa, the activist who
went missing on January 15th
during a humanitarian
mission in Madidi,
has returned home
safe and sound.
He was welcomed as a hero
in his homeland and stated,
"Now I want to dedicate
myself to the flowers
that grow in the
garden of my land".
Black Veil, everyone's ready
for tonight's global black-out,
From four p.m. today, all
flights are suspended,
the diesel engine
trains are ready.
Transport by ship will
also be suspended.
The shielding work
for data-servers by
IT and finance giants
from all over the world
have now been completed.
Globally, tests have been ran
for restarting power plants
and for emergency
cooling systems
of nuclear power plants.
Only a few hours
before the Black Veil,
Home Secretaries
of all Countries
are inviting people to stay
safe in their own homes,
and not leave them if
not strictly necessary,
between eight pm tonight
and two a.m. of tomorrow
morning, Greenwich time.
Experts assure us there won't be
any danger to our health and
that the possible blackout
will last a maximum
of two hours.
New clashes in the suburbs
of Nashik for the protest
that has been going
on for a month now.
The Government is now
sending the Military,
but they assure
there will be no harm
against those who
protest peacefully.
Meanwhile, tension is rising
between the political forces
and the leaders of
the demonstration,
which accuse the politics
of publishing false data
about living conditions
in poor areas.
The race against time
continues off the coast
of the Galapagos Islands
to contain the leaks
of chemical waste.
- Hey, love.
Wake up.
- Mmm.
- I brought breakfast.
Come on!
Careful of I'm going
to eat your croissant.
- No, please, leave
it, I'm waking up now.
Please, give me two minutes
to put myself together.
- Mm-hm.
Well, I'll eat it.
- My God, it's good!
- Mmm.
I know.
They're amazing.
- You want to know
what else is amazing?
You are amazing.
I mean it.
- If this isn't a
perfect start to the day,
I don't know what is.
- Idiot.
Go get dressed.
You're already late.
- Okay.
- I'm gonna go get ready.
Seriously, you'll be late.
Come on.
- Huh?
- Oh, you're still here?
- Leaving now, love.
- Okay, have a good day.
- Thank you.
- First of
all, let's underline
that solar storms
are natural phenomena
that reoccur with a
frequency of about 11 years
and are directly
associated in periods
of intense activity from the-
- Let's hope it goes well.
Possibly not like
in that movie with,
who was it again, Nicolas Cage?
- What?
- Where all of California was
wiped out in a solar flare.
- Aaah!
I know the one you mean.
Well, if it does go like that,
then only aliens
could save us, maybe.
- Yeah, probably.
- However, don't worry, he
said that the power outrage
will only last a
couple of hours.
Just enough time to
eat, have a beer,
maybe play some board games.
- Mmm, yeah.
- Everyone's
favorite artist.
See if you can guess who it is.
- Good morning!
- Good morning.
- Hi there!
- How's it going?
- All good!
- Good.
Hyped for tonight?
- Of course!
- You took your sweet
time to get here, huh?
- Bit of a traffic jam.
- Yeah, guess who was late?
Who has long hair?
- Long hair.
Of course, as always.
- He needed to do his
blow dry.
- Hey, man.
- Hey, man.
What's up?
- All good.
- Hey, where's my buddy?
- She's getting ready, angel.
- How are you?
- Not too
bad, and yourselves?
- Good, good.
Rushing, always, but good!
- Would be
strange if you weren't!
We hope to have a good party.
- Here they are, finally!
- Finally!
- Hi.
- How are you?
Good, you?
- Very good!
- Babe, so good to see you!
- You too!
- First the master of the house.
- Of course.
- Come in.
- Okay.
- Guys.
I discovered a new
typically Italian recipe.
Brace yourselves!
- Ah, the plates.
- Thanks.
- Thank you.
- I found it
on a Facebook page
called Franca Genius Chef.
It seemed quite straightforward.
- Thank you.
- Let's hope
it's not an epic fail.
- It smells delicious.
- Thank goodness.
- Let's hope it tastes
delicious too, huh, Alice?
- Always so kind.
- Eh, well.
- Such a sweetheart.
- All right.
Everybody served?
Ah, wait!
Well, you sit down.
- Okay.
- May this blackout
get over and done with
and may it bring us a
year full of surprises!
- Well, then, to surprises!
- To surprises!
- To surprises!
- Here we go.
- Enjoy!
And now, finally, we can eat!
Enjoy your meal, guys!
- Enjoy.
- Mm!
- Wow, this is good!
You can say whatever
you want about Italians,
but no one cooks like they do.
- Yeah, that's for sure!
- I absolutely
want the recipe.
- Come on.
- Hm?
I'll give it to you later.
- Thank you.
- Does anyone want
anything else?
- No, I beg you!
- No.
Thank you, but no.
- Good, but too much!
- We're so full.
- Delicious.
- I'm glad you liked it!
- Yes, yes delicious.
But, hell, you made a ton of it.
- Power cut is in
less than an hour...
what do we want to do?
- We could play, uh,
the phone game.
- The phone game?
What's that?
- I'll explain.
It's really stupid.
I mean, it's a stupid
game, but it's also funny,
you find out a lot of
stuff about each other.
- Cool!
- So, everyone has to put
their phones on the table
and whenever
someone gets a text,
one of us reads it out loud.
And obviously remove
our passcodes.
- Well that sounds
fucking ridiculous.
- Come on, Dylan.
- Are you keeping
something from me?
- Oh please, it just
sounds like a shit game,
but hey, if you care
so much then here.
- Yes, Dylan!
- Don't mean to sound boring,
but I also think
this is bullshit.
- The anxiety!
But I'm very curious to see
who's phone will ping first.
- It's Ryan.
He says he'll anticipate
the appointment
to 10 a.m. on Monday.
- Boring!
I really can't be bothered
to go to that reunion!
Only fucking numbers on numbers.
Literally you just show
up say good morning,
here is the balance sheet
for our company this month!
Oh well at least you've
understood how the game works.
Simple, right?
- I still think this is
a fucking waste of time.
Let's do something
more fun, like Twister,
or since today is more
like New Year's Eve,
maybe some drinking games.
- Well, we can guess who's
phone's going to ping next.
Whoever gets it wrong drinks.
- Yeah.
- Great idea.
I'll get the glasses
and more alcohol.
- There.
- I'll take it!
- Hey little bitch,
you already fucking Dylan?
Well, it is incredible
that those two morons
haven't notice
anything yet again.
Are you thinking about
breaking up with Matt
or you'll keep pretending
it's all a happy family?
Well, you tell me!
Now I've got to go.
There's a boy waiting
for me in my room.
We'll catch up tomorrow.
Have fun, little bitch!
- What's happening?
- Yeah, what's happening?
Care to explain?
- Nothing, what do you mean?
- Yeah this friend's an idiot.
She just likes pulling
my leg like that.
- Really?
And then let's see.
So this is just
a shit joke then?
- Uh, they are joking, right?
- Let me explain.
- You're not
explaining shit, okay?
- Babe, listen to me, please.
- I need to be alone.
- Matt, wait!
- Please, listen.
Can we talk?
Can we talk?
I can explain.
Please, look at me.
I can't stand this
silence from you.
- Where?
Tell me, where did I go wrong?
- What?
You didn't do anything wrong.
- Bullshit.
It was all bullshit!
All those things you told me.
The new house,
the keys,
the car, furniture.
If I were you, I would
seal my mouth shut.
- Summer, can I talk to you?
- Tell me.
- Come.
Listen, I can't
stand to be here.
Alice is upstairs
in our room crying,
I can't even look at her.
How disgusting!
- What are you suggesting?
- I don't know.
Lets go out to see what's
going on out there.
I just can't be here.
I'm gonna explode if I
stay in here any longer.
I mean it!
- I know, I understand.
I don't know, we could
go to the police.
Maybe they'll be able to
tell us something more.
- Yeah.
Good one.
- What are you talking about?
- They're thinking of going
to the police to find out
why the power cut
is still going.
- It's a good idea.
We could try.
- I really don't think
that's a good idea.
They've been saying we need
to stay home on the news.
As hard as that is right
now, we have to do that!
- You have no right to tell
me what do to right now.
Not in my house.
- I didn't mean to-
- Shut the fuck up!
- Let it go,
let it go.
It's not worth it.
Instead, let's try to understand
why the current does not return.
- You're right, it's
not the right time.
Let's get out of
here Summer, please.
Take the torch.
- Yes.
- Ah, the police station
is three kilometers away.
Can we take your car?
- Yes, certainly.
Dylan, give me the car keys.
- I'm coming too.
- Come on.
It's not working.
- Perfect.
- The solar storm has
blocked the control unit.
- What do we do now?
- I don't know.
I guess we could go back
inside and wait a bit.
- No, I'm walking.
- Why?
It'll be okay.
You'll see.
- No it won't be fucking okay.
How on earth can you think
I'd go back in there with you?
- Come on, calm down.
- Calm down my ass.
- Let's go with them.
Let's go with them.
- All right.
Let's go.
- Hey, can we talk?
Please, let me explain.
- What is there to explain?
You cheated on me.
- It's not that simple.
There's no excuse for
what I did to you.
I know.
But I'm going through
a difficult time.
I tried to tell you.
But it's not so easy.
- So when were you thinking
of telling me then?
How long has it
been going on for?
- Maybe five weeks or so.
Trust me I was finding the
right time to tell you,
but you were either busy
or working a lot and-
- All fucking bullshit excuses.
- I know.
I can understand.
My workload was nothing
compared to what it usually is,
so I started leaving early.
As I was walking down
the street I met Alice
and she asked me why
I was out so early,
so I told her everything.
I don't know, but at that
moment she was there for me.
I had fears,
insecurities and doubts,
and I don't know how it ended
up becoming what it did.
I swear I didn't
want to hurt you!
- Shhh.
Can you hear?
- What?
Everything's gone silent.
- What's going on?
- I don't
know, but it's weird.
It's like everything's gone
deserted all of a sudden.
- Let's keep walking.
The police station is
still a long way away.
- Wait.
Okay, maybe we should
actually just go home.
- Help!
- Calm down!
- Please Help!
- He needs to go to a hospital.
- Please.
- Calm down.
- What is it?
- It's a beast,
it's a creature!
It killed my friends!
- Try to calm down.
I can't understand
what you're saying?
- We have
to go to the police.
Help me!
- We have
to go to the police.
- No!
No, not that way, no!
- Calm down!
- Run!
- Wait here!
- Run, run!
- What the fuck's happening?
- Run!
- Can you tell us what
the fuck is happening?
What did you see?
- I don't know.
I don't know what I saw.
But it wasn't human.
I mean, it was human,
but it moved,
it moved like a beast.
The guy was covered in blood.
And the beast
was eating him.
- What was that?
- Carry on.
I don't know what it was.
We're not safe here.
We're not safe.
- Let's leave.
- What do we do now?
Please, let's go back.
- I think we should
go back home.
It's safer.
- No you don't get it!
No place is safe!
Have you seen that, that thing?
- Then what?
What do you suggest?
- I don't know.
I do not know.
- Dylan's right.
We should go back.
- How?
That thing, it
could be anywhere.
We only have torches.
- Matt, do you have
any idea where we are?
I am asking you if you
know where the fuck we are.
- Yes, I know.
- How do we get home?
- There are two ways.
One is on the main
road through town,
the other is in remote
pathway, through the woods.
- Fuck!
How are we going to get home?
- We don't have
much of a choice.
We just need to decide which
route is most convenient.
- Matt, what is the fastest way?
- Through town.
- Okay!
Lets go there then.
- Are you joking?
That thing is there!
- She's right.
Going in town now would
be like a massacre.
- Okay, then into
the woods we go.
- All right.
- Where are these
sounds coming from?
- I don't know, but we
have to keep going ahead.
- Okay.
If we make it home,
what do we do next?
- I don't know, but
we need to find help.
- Yes, we'll wait for
the power to come back
and we'll call the police.
- Probably.
- Did you hear it?
Something's here, I feel it.
- Come on, keep going.
- Keep going!
I can see the fence.
- No, Matt!
- We gotta help him!
- No!
We have to go home!
- No!
- Come on, lead her.
Let's go.
- No, Matt!
- Come on.
- Come on.
- Matt.
- Oh God.
Go inside!
- Oh my God, it's you!
Are you okay?
- Yeah, I'm okay.
- Is it gone?
- For now!
- What do you mean "for now"?
We're all going to die,
we're all going to die!
- No!
No one else is going to die.
- How can you say that?
Matt is gone!
- Let's just wait.
All we can do is wait.
Someone must be
taking care of this.
I mean, the authorities
will know what's happening.
- I think, I think this
isn't the first time
this has happened.
- What?
- This thing.
- What do you mean?
- When I was in astronomy class,
the professor
spoke about a study
that related the
magnetic field of the sun
to certain historical
events and popular beliefs.
In short, the magnetic field
of the sun reverses its polarity
once every 11 years.
With today's technology,
we can better understand
these phenomena
and anticipate their severity,
just like what's
happening today.
The professor then delved deeper
into the history
of these phenomena,
and told us about March 1989,
when rare things took place,
such as sightings
of auroras in states
like Texas and Florida.
He also told us about
other similar episodes,
just like the one in 1859,
when, just like today,
there was a global blackout.
Only at that time
technology was obviously
not like it is today,
and the damage was bad
but not disastrous!
But when we were
in the underpass
and Matt told us
what he had seen,
I swear I couldn't believe it!
Here we go again.
The legends are all true.
The professor talked about
an ancestral creature
that thrived in the dark!
In some books, there
is also talk of a beast
with wolf-like features.
In the 13th century,
people went do far as
to make human sacrifices
to appease its hunger.
It doesn't seem real.
- How did they stop the beast?
- I don't know.
I think its hunger
somehow got manageable.
But this solar eruption
has brought it back again.
- My god.
All this time,
it was here.
- We need to hope
his hunger vanishes.
- The creature will
vanish with it.
- I don't want to die,
I don't want to be
eaten by that thing.
- No one will die anymore and
no one will be eaten again.
We just need to wait for
someone to come to help.
- That's if they come.
- No, I can't do this!
We can't just sit here
and wait to be killed.
We must do something.
- What do you suggest?
- This is your
father's house, right?
He used to hunt right?
- Yeah, so what?
- So there should be some
guns somewhere in this house.
- I think he's given
away most of his things.
Maybe there's still
a rifle in a closet
in the tool shed or something.
- Let's go check.
- Are you mad?
It's too dangerous.
- Yes, we should wait.
- Wait for what?
Wait for help that won't come?
Wait for our death?
- You're right.
We need to be prepared
to defend ourselves
when the beast comes.
- Good, so let's go to the
shed to get our weapons.
- Wait, I'll go.
- No, Dylan you're
not going on your own.
- Yes, I can.
I will not allow anything
to happen to you.
- Dylan!
- Listen to me.
I behaved shamefully!
I want to make up for it.
If you'll allow me,
I want to start over.
And I don't want anything
bad to happen to you!
Please stay here.
- Be careful.
- Okay.
I'll take the weapons
and I'll be back.
I'll just be a minute.
Alice, check if you
have more torches.
- Something must have happened
to him, I can feel it.
- Try to stay calm,
all we can do is wait.
- No, I can't.
We must do something.
- What do you want to do?
- Oh, I don't know!
But if he needs help I can't
just leave him in danger!
- I'll go check if
we have something
that we can use as a weapon.
I'll check downstairs.
- I'll check in the hall.
- Okay.
- The door is open.
- In the rush of things
he probably left it open.
Check outside the door, I'll
go downstairs and check.
- I will, okay.
- Summer.
- Please, no!
- Take the gun.
- No, stay with me, please.
- You must go!
- I'm not leaving,
not without you.
It'll be okay, but you
stay with me, please!
- I'm so sorry
to have hurt you.
- No, no,
don't worry about that.
- I'm sorry
for everything.
- Listen, it'll be alright!
But you stay with me!
- I didn't mean
to hurt you, Summer.
- No, it doesn't matter,
it doesn't matter.
It's all good.
We're gonna start over
like you said, okay?
- You'll have
to go on without me.
- No, no I don't want to!
No, please!
- This is how
it was supposed to be.
- No, no.
No, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan!
Wake up, please!
Dylan, Dylan.
Wake up, please!
Wake up, please!
- Summer?
- No, no.
- No.
- Hey!
Are you okay?
Are you okay?
Listen, would you
like to come with me?
It's been a very long
night for everyone.
Is it safe where you live now?
- I don't know.
I don't think so.
We've been running all night.
- Everyone is dead where I live.
- Yeah, same.
- Do you know somewhere
safe where we could go?
- No,
they're everywhere...
- We could try
somewhere in town.
- Yeah, maybe where
they've already been.
They won't come back.
- They're
deploying military forces.
Experts have not yet been able
to explain what is happening.
We repeat, we are in
a state of emergency.
Humanoid creatures have
appeared in the blackout.
They attack humans and
animals without distinction.
The armed forces
are actively engaged
to protect the population.
If you're lucky enough to
hear this radio message,
spread the word.
We are in a state of emergency.
Do not leave your home.
