Boneyard (2019) Movie Script

(muffled static)
(ominous music)
- These are serious accusations.
I don't want us to
lose sight of that.
If the police decide
to pursue this,
they will look into
things, personal things.
The kind--
- Yeah, but...
- David, in court,
in front of a judge,
these things are as
much about reputation
as they are about the law.
They'll bring forward things,
innocent things,
that in the light,
could hurt your position.
She's gone to the press,
the focus is on her.
Right, let's keep it there.
Is there somewhere you could go?
- David's parents have a place.
It's in Westmont,
in the country.
- Stay there, for
a couple of weeks.
Turn off the phone,
don't listen to the news.
David, honestly,
I like our chances.
If they had anything
absolutely damning,
it would be on my desk.
(ominous music)
I think this is
simply a case of...
(dramatic music)
- Hey.
- What time is it?
- Early.
Bed, okay?
(solemn music)
(water boiling)
(tense music)
(ominous music)
- But she...
I know.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
- [Woman] David?
- Hang on a second.
- [Woman] I'm going out,
do you need anything?
- No, I'm okay.
- [Woman] All right.
- Love you.
- [Woman] Love you.
- [David] Did you,
did you get that
thing that I left for you?
- Hey man.
- Hey, yeah, how's it going?
- Not bad.
Don't worry about it.
How was the trip?
- It was good, cold.
- Yeah, you're up north there.
- Yeah yeah man.
Weird transitioning from
24 hours of daylight
to 24 hours of darkness.
- [Reporter] Diane Findlay
one of the suspects
clearly identified, police
say (voice trails off).
- I'll see ya later Dan.
(reporters shouting)
- [Reporter] What
happened in the courtroom!
- Back off!
- [Reporter] What
about the emails?
Did you have a relationship
with David Morrison?
- This man, he forced
his way into my home,
he beat me, he...
I didn't ask for this!
I'm not on trial!
- [Reporter] Diane! Diane!
- I forgot my wallet.
- Yeah.
(woman screaming)
- Fuck!
(ambient music)
(birds chirping)
(camera shuttering)
(ominous music)
(suspenseful music)
(heart beating)
(ambient music)
(ghost whispering)
(ominous music)
(dramatic music)
(high pitched ringing)
(birds chirping)
(water running)
- Hey hun, did you get that...
(woman gasps)
What's wrong?
- I'm all right.
- [David] Jesus.
- I'm fine.
Somebody killed an
animal, it was nothing.
- [David] Where?
- It was nothing.
- Where?
- Up the path.
(slow paced music)
- So I see you
found the boneyard.
- Boneyard?
- Kids say it's some kind
of Indian burial ground.
They come out here and
try to scare each other.
It's stupid but harmless.
Teenagers probably shot this guy
and brought him back here
to spring on their friends.
- Seriously?
- David.
- That's your expert opinion?
- [Officer] Sir?
- It's trespassing at least.
- Yes, it's trespassing.
- And?
- I can send a car out tonight.
- Perfect.
- Mr. Morrison--
- Doctor.
- Dr. Morrison, if you
want me to send a car--
- When some hayseed
makes a transparent
attempt to harass me
because the TV tells
them I'm a bad guy, I just
expect to be taken seriously.
- David, that's enough.
He's under a lot of stress.
- I know what he's under.
- Of course.
- Look, I'm sorry,
I didn't mean to...
How are you holding up?
- Hard to say.
We take it one day at a time.
- Sure.
Today must've been hard.
- What do you mean?
(tense music)
I'm listening.
- Does it matter?
- Yes.
- Sometimes, not
often, students...
Girls send me things.
They're 19, 20,
they wanna see how
far they can push.
I don't encourage them but
I don't embarrass them.
That's all.
- And this girl pushed.
- Harder than most.
There were texts, she
came to my office--
- And you didn't
mention this to me.
- It was harmless.
She was...
She was pretty.
Maybe my motives weren't.
She was a child Jane.
- I see.
Is there anything else?
- No.
There's nothing else.
- David, I am part of this.
- [David] I know that.
- And then you know you
can't keep things from me!
I'm standing beside you,
and that means getting
splashed with all of this...
Look, and I'm
willing to do that,
but I won't...
You can't make a fool of me!
- I swear, there's nothing else.
(glass shattering)
(wood cracking)
(footsteps approaching)
Lock the door.
- Don't!
(ominous music)
(door banging)
(knob clicking)
- Jane!
I'm going to...
(glass clanking)
(suspenseful music)
(eerie music)
(Jane gasping)
- Stop!
It's me!
It's me.
It's okay, there's
nothing there.
(camera shuttering)
The back door was open and
I heard somebody running,
but by the time I got there,
they'd already started the car.
- Anything you can
tell me about the car?
- It was a compact.
I don't know the make or model.
It was blue.
- You wanna stay in
the hotel tonight?
Somewhere nobody knows you?
- Where?
- [Officer] Pardon?
- Where does nobody know us?
- We can leave a
patrol car here.
- [David] Thank you.
(opera music)
(alarm beeping)
- Okay, good to go.
(slow paced music)
(ominous music)
(angel thuds)
- Then just tell me.
Whatever you need, just ask.
I just...
I understand.
(car approaching)
- Officer Jones?
- Just checking in.
- And how are we doing?
- Hard to say.
Do you mind if you I
walk with you for a bit.
That's a nice camera.
- It's just a hobby.
I mean, it is now.
- You were a professional?
Art or--
- News.
- Why'd you give it up?
- You know, one of
you makes more money.
- I wish.
- It's not as
great as you think.
You go to a lot of receptions,
wear the right dress,
say the right thing, act stable.
- You okay?
- Yeah, yeah, I'm just
not sleeping, you know?
- I can't even imagine.
You're doing pretty well though.
- Yeah, I put on a good show.
- Oh no, you're
doing well, trust me.
I've seen...
- Not appropriate?
- Not at all.
(Jane giggling)
- See, you're doing all right.
You wanna turn around?
- Silly, I know.
- I don't blame ya,
I'll walk you back.
- Officer Jones.
- Tony.
- Tony.
- That's better.
- Why'd they put it there?
The boneyard?
- Awe come on, you
don't wanna hear that.
- No, really.
- Well, they found a couple
of grave markers in there.
Archeologists came
in in the mid-70s
and dug it up and it got on TV.
- Why?
If it was just a
couple of graves.
- Well, under the first
graves there was older graves.
Thought it might be something
religious, you know.
After they carted it
out and cataloged it,
everybody just kind
of lost interest.
There ya have it.
A boneyard.
I should be heading back.
Offer still stands
if you wanna come.
- Why'd they think
it was religious?
- Hm?
- Why did they think it
was a religious thing?
- All those graves they found,
they were women.
(ominous music)
Well, this is my stop.
- Then I'll see you officer.
- I'll be around.
- [Jane] Tony.
(camera shutters)
- [David] Yes.
- I'm home!
I'm sorry that took so long,
- Thank you, I understand.
- [Jane] I ran in...
- The university.
- What did they offer?
- Retirement, full pension.
- Did you give them an answer?
- No.
- We could put all
this behind us,
you could still write.
- Who'd publish me?
- We could go West, a new town.
I could go back to work.
- Kuntz is retiring, I would
have been the youngest--
- You have to stop thinking--
- Why?
This was done to me.
I didn't do anything!
- Because you were accused of--
- Yeah, by a vindictive
angry teenager!
- It doesn't matter!
- [Jane] It's out there now
and it's gonna follow us.
- It's not fair.
- But it's realistic.
Best case scenario,
there will always
be people who don't believe you.
- I didn't do it, all right!
If I stop fighting, no
one will believe me!
- How important is that?
- You won't believe me.
- David.
- Stop, just stop okay.
Tell me you believe me.
(solemn music)
(ominous music)
(door creaking)
(ghost whispering)
(eerie music)
(Jane screaming)
- Make it stop.
(ominous music)
(machine beeping)
- An ischemic lesion.
- Is that a growth or?
- [Doctor] No, blood
flow is constrictive.
Your stress level,
it may have contributed.
Now the short answer
is right now is we,
we don't know what
could have caused this.
- [David] What's next?
(slow muffled speaking)
- [Demon] Come to me.
(machine beeping and hissing)
(ominous music)
(eerie music)
- Do you hear?
It's singing.
Come to me.
(high pitched ringing)
(window banging)
(slow paced music)
(water running)
(footsteps approaching)
(muffled speaking)
(phone vibrating)
- I need your help.
- You need to take this.
- The allegations
made by Diane Findlay
and myself against
Professor David Morrison
are false.
Diane and I fabricated
this story when
sexual relations between
us led to injuries
we could not explain.
These poisonous
lies have haunted me
and it's my hope
that this confession can
in some way begin to atone
for the damage that
Diane and I have done.
I know that I'm not
worthy of forgiveness,
but I hope to someday--
- Hey.
(ominous music)
- What?
(speaking foreign language)
- David.
(speaking in foreign language)
- Bottle of wine.
- Tomorrow?
- Leave at eight,
we'll be home at 7:30.
(phone ringing)
We're young and
carefree, what do ya say?
- Yes.
All right.
And for the love of God, pack!
- It's a date.
(light music)
(ominous music)
She's been in the house.
- Who?
- Diane Findlay.
(tense music)
(car chugging)
Come on!
(ominous music)
Get back inside.
- David.
- Get back inside!
Call the police.
(alarm wailing)
(phone buzzing)
- [Woman] Hello, this is
Secure Home Alarms calling,
may I have your four
digit code please?
- One, nine, one, five.
There's someone at the door.
(ominous music)
- Diane!
- [Woman] Has been notified
and the police are on the way.
- Thank you.
- [Woman] We will be monitoring
to ensure the arrival
of the police.
If you have anymore concerns,
please call us back immediately.
(dramatic music)
(eerie music)
(ominous music)
(angelic humming)
(gun clicking)
- Stop!
Don't move.
Get down on the ground.
- It's all right.
It's all right, anybody
can point a gun,
but to pull the
trigger, you have to...
It doesn't make you weak.
It's okay.
It's okay.
You can put the gun down.
Please, you don't
have to do this.
You don't want to do this.
(girl gasping)
(gun firing)
(ominous music)
Look at me.
Look at me!
Open your eyes.
(gun clicking)
(gun firing)
(Diane screaming)
(phone ringing)
- [Woman] Hello.
- Jamie.
- [Jamie] Jane, is that you?
Is everything all right?
- What did David ask you to do?
- [Jamie] What?
Jane, are you all right?
- All those times on the phone,
what did he ask you to do?
- [Jamie] Those times?
- Did you bribe him?
Is that how you got
this to go away?
- [Jamie] Jane.
- I know he did it,
so tell me what he made you do?
- [Jamie] Jane, I haven't
talked to David in weeks.
His phone was off.
(ominous music)
What is this?
- I understand now.
Come to me.
- [Jamie] Jane, Jane!
(demon growling)
- [Demon] Come to me.
(demon speaking
foreign language)
- No, please.
(demon speaking
foreign language)
(body thudding)
(door slamming)
(door banging)
(tense music)
(light gentle music)
(light ominous music)
- [David] Jane.
(ominous music)
What happened?
- It's not as bad as it looks.
- It was her.
I chased her into the
woods, she had a gun.
I didn't want,
I couldn't...
(heart beating)
got away from me for a second,
I got behind her,
we struggled, the
gun went off...
She's dead.
- You're sure?
- [David] There
was so much blood.
- The police will be here soon.
- No!
(suspenseful music)
We can't.
I killed her Jane.
- [Jane] It was an accident.
- Really?
Is that how they're
gonna see it?
- [Jane] Of course they will.
What are you suggesting?
- That she was never here.
She just disappeared.
(ominous music)
Call them.
Tell them we panicked.
(phone ringing)
- Hello?
(demon growling)
- We have to move fast.
You have to clean up, shower,
don't do your hair,
it'll look suspicious.
- Where are you going?
- To move the car, go on.
(ominous music)
(car chugging)
- [David] Put it in neutral.
(garage door clanking)
- You need to shower, come on.
- We have to move the body.
- They won't look in the woods.
- Just to be safe.
- Okay.
- [David] I hit her.
- Oh.
- [David] When she
wouldn't let go of the gun.
- [Jane] You had to.
- I did.
Tell me,
tell me you believe me.
- I believe you.
- Good.
(Jane screams)
(David screams)
(ominous music)
(woman screaming)
(fast tense music)
(demon whispering)
(woman screaming)
- Help me.
(demon whispering)
Make it stop.
- [Demon] Come to me.
(high pitched ringing)
(suspenseful music)
(fast suspenseful music)
(fast tense music)
- Not now, please, no.

(suspenseful music)
- No.
(bones cracking)
(David screaming)
(solemn music)
(phone cracking)
(David gasping)
- Don't, don't say that.
- Why are you doing this?
Sweetheart, you're sick.
- You--
- What,
whatever you're thinking
it's not real.
- Tell me I'm dreaming.
- Sweetheart,
you're not thinking.
- Tell me that you're innocent.
- Please.
I didn't do it.
(tape sticking)
No, what are you doing?
(David groaning)
(David gasping)
You fucking bitch!
You whore!
- All this, so you could
crawl back under your rock.
So you could...
Who did you call?
(phone buzzing)
- [Demon] Come to me.
- [David] Did you
hear him singing?
- What's happening?
You know what's happening.
- I've always known.
He lives in the boneyard,
he's always been there.
Just outside of everything.
When I was a kid, I fed him.
Dogs and cats,
and he sang to me.
Be cruel,
stare into the eyes of death.
Make your sacrifices.
Before me, who knows how many,
but he's never made a move.
But tonight, tonight
he's walking.
He's coming.
I'm going to kill you Jane,
and I'm going to welcome
him into this world.
- You don't look like
you're going anywhere.
- But I've seen it.
He showed me.
What did he show you?
- Shut up.
- Tricky little glimpses.
- Shut up.
- If only you'd known
what they meant.
- Shut up!
- That's what I loved about you.
But my tastes run
a little prettier.
You know, some
nights I had to fight
the urge to gag
when you touched me?
But you always were smart Jane.
What's the question?
- What did you do?
- No.
How many.
- No.
- Under the nightstand.

(Jane gasping)
- Can you hear him?
He's nearly here.
It was supposed to be me!
It was supposed to be me!
- Don't move!
Drop the knife sir.
Drop the knife sir!
Sir, do you understand me?
Drop the knife.
