Bloodthirsty (2020) Movie Script

I thought the hallucinations
were going away.
We discussed it, this is
absolutely the wrong time
to be coming off
that medication.
I'm going to, I'm gonna
prescribe some CBT.
It's cognitive behavior therapy.
It's, look, it's
for psychotherapy.
Look, we've tried PEscans, we've tried MRis,
we've tried blood work-
So it's all in my head?
That's what you're telling me?
Grey, have you been drinking?
Okay, this on three.
And smile.
Hold it, great. Lookin' great.
When can
fans expect a new single?
Lookin' good.
Why did you cancel your tour?
Grey, look over here.
Grey, we
hear you're working with
Vaughn Daniels on
your next album.
How's work
coming on the second album?
It's fine.
Do you have a date?
When's it coming out?
You can ask my manager, Rose.
How are things with your
girlfriend? Wedding plans?
We like to keep our
relationship private.
Oh, come on. The
public deserves to know.
I was promised 10 minutes.
Hey, how was the photo shoot?
It was all right.
I ordered takeout.
Don't worry, it's vegan.
And the press conference?
Oh, the usual.
Come on, admit
it. You love it.
A bunch of girls on your
dick, screaming your name.
"Grey, Grey, Grey, Grey."
Well, pretty soon, you're
not gonna return my calls.
So, I think I've found someone
to produce my next album.
- Seriously?
- Mm-hm.
His name's Vaughn Daniels.
Vaughn Daniels.
Okay, looks like he was
in a boy band in the 90s.
It says he was tried for murder?
Greta Sturges, she was
a singer or something?
Yeah, um, he was acquitted.
Okay, you're not
seriously considering
recording an album
with him, are you?
Char, you know not to
believe everything you read.
I mean, you've read some of
the stuff they write about me.
Right, but you're
not a killer.
I mean, you couldn't
even kill that mouse.
I had to do it all.
Can you just be happy for me?
This guy could work with anyone
he wants and he picked me.
Remember when you picked me?
Mm-hm? You could have anyone
you wanted and you picked me.
That is true.
How's your
new material coming?
Um, I don't know,
it's all right.
I'm sure it's more than
all right.
I don't know, it's kind
of missing something.
Do you think we've
been going the right way?
Yeah, I think so.
Oh, my god.
What was that?
What was that?
So, you just, you
ran over a bunny.
No, did I kill it?
- Pretty much.
- Oh, my god.
- Okay, don't freak out.
- No, no, no.
I can't do this, you know
how I get with animals.
Okay, we should just go.
Oh, my god. I killed
a fucking bunny?
We're just gonna
forget it happened.
Was it cute, though?
Okay, okay.
We're gonna forget
it ever happened, okay?
We're gonna go to
your murderer's house,
everything is gonna be fine.
That doesn't help.
- I love you.
- I love you too.
It's creepy.
I think it's beautiful.
- She seems nice.
- Yeah, just your type.
Hi, uh, Mr. Daniels
is expecting us.
Come in.
Uh, what about our things?
She's fun.
Quite impressive.
Look at this.
I bet it sounds amazing.
Sounds great, Grey.
Mr. Daniels,
it's so nice to meet you.
Stop, stop, stop.
You can call me Vaughn.
I'm glad you're here, Grey.
Um, sorry, this is my
girlfriend, Charlie.
- Hi.
- Hey, Charlie.
Nice to meet you.
Charlie's a
painter, so I thought
she would get some
inspiration up here.
Oh, yeah. That's
great, that's great.
Why don't you guys make
yourselves at home?
Beer in the fridge,
wine in the cellar.
Cabinets are stocked.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
I'll give you some
time to settle in
and then we're gonna start.
I'm looking forward to
working with you, Grey.
Yeah, me too.
How would you like to start?
Well, usually, I guess
ideas just sort of come to me,
whether it's a melody
or song lyrics or both.
My, my mom died when
I was younger, and...
I like to think that it's her,
just speaking to me
through the music somehow.
So, what should
we work on then?
Yeah, I don't know. I'm
struggling right now.
I think that I am forcing it
and then the more I force it,
the worse it gets and-
- I can help you with that.
You don't wanna force
it, you have to be open.
Can I be honest with you?
I think your writing's good.
I think it could be better.
You just have to go deeper.
The artist has a great
power when they stop trying.
Just let the song come to you.
You don't even have to write
it out, you just listen.
Grey, come on in here.
Are you okay?
I, I feel off.
It's like there's something
holding me back, I'm like,
I'm on the cusp of something
and then as soon as I get there
it's like I hit a wall and...
Let's take a break.
I brought you out here
to show you something.
And what's that?
Grey, stop.
Stop hiding behind your sarcasm,
stop trying to be clever.
You have to get
out of your head.
I want you to do an exercise.
I want you to run
as far as you can.
I want you to run as fast as
you can, as hard as you can,
till you can't fucking breathe.
Till you can't take another
step. Do you understand?
What the fuck.
That was good, Grey.
How did you...
You're not even winded.
Let's go back inside.
Let's do another one.
Let's go again.
Let's go again.
Uh, let's go again.
Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck!
Let's try it again.
Okay, let's uh,
let's try one more.
She's been at it all
night, she should rest.
She has one more in her.
It's morning. She's done,
I can hear it in her voice.
She's right, I'm done.
I need to rest.
Okay, sweetheart.
You rest.
You know, in the future?
Maybe don't distract her
while she's trying to work.
I get it. You're supposed
to push yourself for her.
But I know her, you don't.
I've made a lot of
great music in my life,
because I trust my instincts.
Maybe I know her a lot
better than you do.
She's beautiful.
Yeah, she was beautiful.
Incredibly talented.
My one great regret is that we
didn't finish her last album.
I'm sorry.
Sometimes it seems that the
past only exists to haunt us.
I've come to
terms with my past.
Sometimes it's better
to just move on.
What was it like growing
up in foster homes?
They were mean sometimes.
Told us we were
lucky to be there.
To have a roof over our heads.
Sometimes we went hungry.
I'm sorry.
I think people who have
never been hungry before
don't know what that's like.
I know what you mean.
It can consume you.
It's dinnertime.
I'm starving.
I made sure that there was
a number of vegan options
in the house for you.
Thank you. How did you know?
I know everything about you.
Your manager told me.
How long have you been a vegan?
Well, when I was six,
I got curious about where
meat comes from,
and I found out and I
haven't touched it since.
I could never give up meat.
Do you ever leave
the house? Go anywhere?
No, not really.
I kinda have
everything I need here.
The house has been in my
family for generations now.
So much great music
has been made here.
You two are the first
guests that I've had here
in many, many years.
It's okay.
You think I'm guilty?
I'm not sure what
you heard, but,
Greta and I were making, um,
an incredible record together.
Then one day I came home and...
I walked into her bedroom,
and she was sitting on
the edge of the bed.
And I froze and we just
stared at each other.
Then she lifted the
gun to her head.
And she shot herself.
I wish that I would've
grabbed the gun.
I just was paralyzed.
I couldn't save her.
But I didn't kill her.
I promise you that, Grey.
We're leaving.
- He might hear you.
- I don't care, he's a psycho!
He's eccentric. My
manager warned me.
What's gotten into you?
You weren't in the
studio today, Charlie.
I think he can really help me.
He scares me.
You know what scares me?
My second album flopping.
That's good.
- That's good.
- Thanks.
We're not really
here for good, are we?
I think maybe we should try
going in another direction.
Okay, like what?
I don't know. What've
you been working on lately?
Nothing really,
just bits of things.
Let me hear 'em.
This one I started
the other day.
It kind of came
to me in my sleep.
Yeah. Boys, girls,
they're just words.
I like this.
Let's flesh this one out, yeah?
That's such a beautiful line.
Heartbreaking. Put
it in a minor key.
Alone, alone.
Yeah. Yeah, I like that.
- Right?
- Yeah, I love that.
Yeah, that is
pretty fuckin' great.
Oh, don't you love that feeling
when it all comes together?
It's like a drug.
It's like great fucking sex.
Play again.
What're you doing?
I can smell it all over you.
There's something...
You need to use that.
That's what makes you special.
How's it goin'?
It's good. I think
we're making progress.
What're you writing?
Oh, this is a new song.
What's wrong? Are you okay?
Yeah, I'm fine. Fuck.
What're you doing?
Grey, look at me.
I need to take my medication.
What for?
I can't tell you about it.
Yes, you can.
I don't want any
secrets between us.
I want you to be
able to trust me.
And I wanna be
able to trust you,
and I can't do that if
you're not being truthful.
There is no shame in
great art, just honesty.
You need to be
ruthless with yourself.
Now, there's nothing that
you have to hide from me.
Okay, I um, I suffer
from hallucinations.
What kind of hallucinations?
You don't wanna know.
Yes, I do.
I hallucinate that I am
turning into an animal.
Give them to me,
give me the pills.
Come on, trust me.
You don't need these.
They're not gonna help anyway.
are so fucking good.
And I am so proud of you.
Gonna be a big, bad hit.
Sing it again.
Oh, there's my
artiste extraordinaire.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Hey, you should watch out.
I have paint all over me.
I don't care.
I found these in
the trash today?
So, maybe I don't
need them anymore.
What? I just, I thought
that they were helping.
Yeah, I don't know, I, I
just wanna feel normal again.
Grey, a lot of
people take medication.
It is nothing to be ashamed of.
I'm not ashamed, Charlie.
I just don't think
I need them anymore.
Vaughn agrees.
Oh, Vaughn agrees?
Yeah, what does Vaughn
have to do with this?
Well, what time's dinner?
Um, about that.
Look, don't get mad
but Vaughn asked
if I would dine with
him alone tonight.
He wants to work through-
Yeah, okay, sure. Whatever.
He said Vera would
bring your food up.
That sounds great.
Don't do this.
I started putting the
songs that we recorded
into order for the album.
Do you wanna take a look?
I thought we'd
start with this one.
It's not only a hit single,
but it's a beautiful opening,
and then we can
lead into something
a little more energetic.
- Yeah, I love that.
- Good.
It's a bit of a lost art,
the crafting of an album.
Now the label people just
say, "start with the best",
and then end with the worst."
I don't think anyone
has the patience
to work all the way through.
But that's where you
have to take them.
So they follow you
right to the end.
And that's why we're gonna
make a different kind of album,
because you're not just
some cookie-cutter pop star.
Dinner. You must be starving.
You skipped lunch.
- I am.
- Thank you, Vera.
- Looks good.
- Thank you.
Something wrong?
Sorry, I must have spaced out.
Do you want a bite?
- Oh, I, I can't.
- Sure you can.
One little bite.
I promise I won't tell anyone.
Would you like another?
Thank you.
The green fairy.
When you drink it,
a little green fairy
will fly around the room.
I don't drink hard alcohol.
Just one drink.
We're celebrating tonight.
What is it?
Relax. You're gonna
like it, you'll be fine.
Trust me.
I'm glad you came.
Me too.
I said I think we could
make a great album together,
but now that you're here, and
I'm with you, I know we can.
Are you all right?
Everything looks green.
That is the green fairy.
Can you feel it?
The bond.
What's happening between us.
It's actually amazing, isn't it?
You have special gifts, Grey.
You are the total package.
Oh, my god. I'm sorry.
I, I don't usually
drink. I told you.
You don't have to
apologize for that.
I should go.
Do you want to?
If you wanna leave, Vera
will pack the car for you.
I wanna finish the album.
I've written something new.
Let me hear it.
It's just a start,
but it's something.
Try it again.
Go again.
Fuck, fuck, fuck!
What are you workin' on?
A new song.
Do you wanna play it for me?
Sure, um, it's just a start.
It's okay.
I wanna hear it.
Since you got here,
your music, it's...
It was beautiful.
Sir? Can I
get you something else?
Yeah, I'm still hungry.
What would you like?
The usual.
You heard me.
Change of plans.
Oh, Jesus fuck!
What're you doing?
What happened?
What did I do?
Are you trying to kill me?
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to.
Do you wanna say something?
Maybe we should go?
Just until you get
yourself right again,
and then we come back, we can-
- I can't leave.
Something is happening to you.
You're not yourself,
ever since we came-
- I am myself.
Grey, I need you to listen
to me just this once.
What is this?
It's the lyrics to
Greta's last song.
She never finished it.
I want you to do it.
I don't know, that doesn't
feel right. It's Greta's song.
Let's go get some air.
Who do you think you really are?
I don't know.
I can see you struggling with
that but you have to decide.
You're so worried what
everyone else thinks.
Trying so hard to be nice.
You're like this little mouse.
Scurrying around.
The world plays with
you like you're dinner.
And it's gonna get
bored and eat you up,
because there are predators
and there is prey.
Go on.
- What?
- Kill it.
Do you wanna be a predator
or do you wanna be prey?
You have to be strong.
Charlie doesn't
think you have it.
That's why she wants
you to go home.
The record label doesn't
believe in you, either.
And hell, Grey, your own
mother abandoned you.
Stay away from her.
I didn't ask your permission.
You don't own her.
Neither do you.
You don't know
anything about us.
I know exactly what
you want from her.
Which is?
Maybe to get a little
bit close to that fame,
so you can feel special,
because you don't matter.
Shut up.
Grey is going to leave you.
Fuck off!
Pack your stuff, we're leaving.
Grey! Come on, move!
He's helping me, Charlie.
We have got to get
out of here right now.
I swear to god, he is
gonna kill us both.
We're not finished
the album yet.
You're coming with me.
- I can't.
- Grey, you're scaring me.
This is place is doing
something to you.
It's not this place.
I don't know who
you are anymore,
but I am leaving.
Come with me.
I just have to
finish the last song.
Just one more song.
Fuck this.
Fuck the album.
Fuck this house, fuck that
psychopath, and fuck you!
What happened?
I'm not a monster.
I'm not a monster.
It's not safe for you here.
People like her will
never really understand
people like us.
I need you to admit it.
That you killed her.
Do you want me
to be that monster?
One day I walked
into her bedroom,
and she was sitting on
the edge of her bed,
and she was holding a gun.
And I looked into her eyes,
and I could tell that
she was going to kill me.
So I took the gun out of
her hand and I shot her.
You say that you're at
peace with your past.
Did you know that
Greta and I had a baby?
We had a little girl.
I guess Greta didn't want
her to grow up like me.
She told me the baby died.
And all these years
later, I see you on TV.
And I hear your music, and
the resemblance is uncanny.
I needed to know, and I didn't
wanna wait one more second,
so I wrote you that
letter and now you're here
and now I know.
You can't run away
from your destiny, Grey.
God knows I've tried.
Let's finish her song.
Greta, honey, are
you ready to go?
Yes, Vaughn. I'm ready.
Let's take it from the top.
I want you to stay with me.
I can't.
I can't lose you again.
The album is done.
I can go back to my life now.
No, you can't.
Yes, I can.
I'm not like you.
She's gone.
Bring her back.
Let me out.
I know you're in pain.
I wanna help you.
It's worse when your
emotions take over.
You have to channel your
rage or it will destroy you.
- No.
- I'll give you some time.
- I'll be back in one hour.
- No.
No, please, I can't.
Come on.
Come on. Fuck.
Oh, my god.
Oh, my god. Oh, my god.
Oh, my god.
Sorry, Charlie.
I'm sorry.
Vaughn, where the fuck are you?
You killed her.
I didn't touch her, Grey.
When did it start happening,
the transformation?
She knew what I was.
She saw me and she
came back for me.
I want you dead like her.
Is that what you really want?
You wanna shoot me?
You killed her.
I don't think so.
I didn't.
That's your blood, Grey.
We're lycanthropes.
Shape-shifting humans.
And throughout history,
our kind has been hunted.
And we hunt.
How many of us are there?
More than you would think.
Grey, don't. Grey, don't.
It's not your fault.
Werewolves do terrible things.
It's our nature.
How many have you killed?
I prefer to
think of it as culling.
There are too many people,
and not enough predators.
I'm concerned.
You suffered this
enormous trauma.
I, I don't think you appreciate-
I'm fine.
So you were attacked
by rabid animal,
who killed everyone, but you?
You lose Charlie, you watch
Vaughn put a bullet in himself.
Have you had any
hallucinations lately?
Not that I recall.
Not that you recall.
Well, I think this would
be the sort of thing
that you would recall,
don't you think, no?
Then no, I haven't had
any hallucinations lately.
Grey, what happened
in that house?
