Dark Parasite (2023) Movie Script

Shower of meteorite
fragments that hit the city
caused extensive structural damage
and injured around 200 people.
The epicenter of this
singular atmospheric event
is in the area between
Monroe and Lanval,
already known for its
urban and social decay.
Protests are growing
in one of the poorest suburbs.
These are quite common and
frequent natural events
that happen on the planet.
Cases of missing
persons are increasing
in the north of the city.
I suggest you enter from here.
No surveillance cameras
means no prying eyes.
Inside you'll find
five men, all armed,
but not to the teeth,
but they certainly won't be
rolling out the red carpet.
Inside, you look
for one man, our man.
He'll be easy to recognize.
He'll have a briefcase
handcuffed to his wrist.
His name's Milan.
He'll also have a stash of
cash he stole from his boss.
They won't be expecting you,
but that doesn't mean you
can let down your guard.
I need you to be swift, silent,
and above all, ready for anything.
Ready for anything?
What do you mean?
This ain't no fucking
picnic in the park.
Everyone knows that Ivanovich's
men don't go down easily.
Now, I'm not expecting
it to be a massacre,
but I wouldn't be surprised if it was,
if you get my drift.
That's how we bring home
the bacon, right Abe?
Yeah, it's no problem.
A massacre?
What are you talking about?
This was meant to be a simple robbery.
That's not what we agreed on.
Mark, Mark, look at me.
This wasn't the deal.
These two lovebirds, Rambo here,
he's a pussy,
a fuckable one, I must admit.
I wouldn't kick him
outta bed if he farted,
but he's a fuckin' pussy.
And this bitch, she's got more balls
than the two of you put together.
You're not losing your
grip, are you, Abe?
Give me a second.
You too.
What the fuck?
Careful what you do, boy.
Be very careful.
You see, you don't
get a second chance,
don't you understand that?
You, oh my God,
another outburst like
that in front of Jacob
and I'll fuckin' kill you myself.
Now, you're gonna listen carefully,
and you're gonna go back in there
and you're gonna shut your mouth,
and then you're gonna say thank you,
and you're gonna take orders.
Now, you can do that, can't you?
You can do that, can't you?
Say it.
Okay, Abraham, okay.
Ha, I don't believe a fuckin' word.
You need to deal.
You need to know who
you're dealing with.
Get in there.
Okay, where were we?
Welcome back.
One more time, from the top.
You enter from here
without being seen,
and you take them by surprise.
As I said, these guys
don't fuck about,
but I'm pretty sure they
don't wanna take a bullet
for a little heist like this.
Be persuasive and I'm
sure they'll come around,
plus you'll have Milan to help.
After all, we're here to make love,
not war, right, Rambo?
Yeah, and what if they shoot first?
Then it'd be the last thing they do.
Once you've made the
necessary introductions,
you'll need to find the briefcase.
I know, a simple,
boring, brown briefcase,
but it's a fucking precious one.
What's inside the briefcase?
Once you've got the briefcase,
all you've got to do is to sit back,
relax, and wait.
Piece of cake.
Wait for what?
Wait for who?
You'll be waiting for one
of our friend Ivanovich's
trusted accomplices, Petrovich.
What is it with
these eastern mafiosi?
Petrovich, Ivanovich,
son of a bitch.
To think this
neighborhood used to be
full of car thieves and pickpockets,
now it's all Russian
oligarchs and cocaine.
Anyway, when you've got the briefcase,
go to this address.
It's an isolated safe house,
one of the parts of the neighborhood
where not even the scam
of the Earth wanna live.
Once you're there, you'll wait
for that bastard Petrovich,
and in exchange for the briefcase,
he'll give you a large bag of cash.
Once I get my share, for all I care,
you can fuck off to hell.
And you don't wanna know
what's inside the briefcase,
darlin', trust me.
See you later.
You want to leave us here on foot?
Come on, bro.
I ain't your bro.
I ain't never been your bro.
I don't have bros.
You do what you gotta do,
and we both go our own ways.
If I were you, I'd keep an
eye on this girly of yours.
You don't wanna see
something bad happen to her.
Have a nice walk.
Yeah, go to hell.
I'm gonna pretend I didn't hear that.
Yeah, right.
I'm sorry, Nik,
I shouldn't have dragged
you into all this,
but you still have time to pull out.
You'll find something else.
Forget about it.
I won't let her ruin your life again.
I won't let her ruin my life again.
Why don't we just leave?
Whatcha talking about?
Leave, today.
Let's leave and not look back.
With what money?
What money, tell me.
We have nothing, nothing.
What hope is there for people like us?
What future would we have?
Look where we come from.
There's no choice for people like us.
Not to mention the money I owe
to that son of a bitch Abraham.
If I don't pay him back,
he won't stop until
I'm six feet under.
We have to go through with this.
We have no choice.
We have to go all the way down.
But when we have the money,
we can run away and not
look back, like you said.
But Jesus, say something.
I'm pregnant.
Oh, Nik.
Well, you both know the plan.
Don't fuck it up.
You got anything to say, anything,
you say it now
'cause there ain't
no time for small talk
once we're in that car,
you understand that?
Good, follow me.
So I don't gotta teach you
how to use all this, do I?
If I'm not careful,
you might shoot yourself in the foot
or blow your head off or whatever.
Hey, once I got you your
money, I'm dead to you, right?
Okay, bro.
Once I got my money,
you can die, whatever.
Business is business.
And one last thing,
you threaten Nikita again,
and I'll kill you.
Now that's more like it. Mark.
I think you just grew a
big old pair of balls.
You're gonna need that tonight.
There's just one thing,
this is just a job,
so you can cut that macho bullshit.
All right.
And no matter what happens,
you let me do the talking, okay?
'Cause tonight nothing is turning
to a bunch of hitting the fan
because we are hardcore
sons of bitches,
even you, you remember that.
Let's go.
Everybody, stay calm.
Keep calm.
That means you, you,
and you.
Hey, I wouldn't do
that if I were you.
Give us what we want, huh?
And nobody gets hurt.
Are you okay?
Yes, yes, don't worry.
I killed him.
Don't think about that right now.
Let's get out of here.
You can come out now, it's safe.
What the fuck, Abraham?
Why did you shoot him?
That's more money for us.
What are you going
to do now, genius?
We don't know even where the key is.
Look at all the long faces.
A bunch of old people.
It's gonna be goddamn long night.
Oh, shit.
It's gonna be a long night.
It's me.
- I'm freaking out, Mark.
- What's wrong?
I'm freaking out.
Calm down.
You saved my life today.
That's what we do.
We cover each other's backs
till the end of time.
Till the end of time.
You have to be strong just
for a couple of hours, okay?
I'm scared.
I'm scared of Abraham.
I'm scared of myself.
I'm scared for the baby.
It'll be fine, okay?
We'll leave all this behind
us, start from scratch.
What if it's not possible?
Think about it.
- What?
- What?
What if we're stuck here?
What are you talking about?
What if there's no way out for us?
There has to be.
We can't give up.
I saw her.
There's nobody here.
It's all in your mind.
You have to get rid of the pain.
You have to be stronger than the pain.
I'm trying Mark, I'm
really, I'm trying, but-
Where are y'all at?
Man, I hate that
fucking son of a bitch.
Let's go or he'll never shut up.
Yeah, you're right.
Where the hell are you two been, huh?
You been making love,
getting buck naked?
I didn't even get an invite?
Yeah, you know what?
Go to hell.
Just joking.
Can't you take a joke?
Ah, people, you're so boring.
All right, let's get
this out in the open,
shall we, Nik, huh?
Let's have a little talk.
It's your first time, huh?
First time killing a man.
Yeah, I thought so.
It's true, what they say, you know,
it's, you never
forget the first time.
Yeah, I'll never forget
the first time ever killed a man.
Christ, how can I ever forget it?
I killed my daddy.
First man ever killed
was, yeah, he's my daddy.
Don't get me wrong though,
I'd do it again in a heartbeat, yeah.
I was 11, 11 years old.
Jesus, think of that, just a boy.
And he was a vile, low down,
stenchy, white trash mother fucker.
And sometimes I think that, you know,
my sole purpose on this
planet was to put him down.
He wouldn't stop beating on my mommy,
so I shot him with his own gun, pop.
It was a shitty gun, so
he kept coming, you know?
Bang, he kept coming, bang.
It kinda went on like
that, you know, pop,
and finally he went down.
He never got back up again.
And I was like, "Thank God.
Never have to look at you again."
And he was ugly too.
He looked like a politician
crossed with some
kind of fucking ape.
But funny thing is,
40 years, almost
40 years go by, you know?
And I'm still haunted.
I still see him when I close my eyes.
They never leave you, Nik,
but you can leave them.
But you gotta, you gotta
be strong, you know?
You gotta, you gotta
look the other way,
close your eyes and pretend
it never happened, you know?
'Cause life's a bitch.
I think you know that
though, I can see it.
I can see it in the
big old eyes of yours.
But go on, go to the
other side of the world,
just get out, move on.
Go somewhere, go somewhere beautiful.
Go to the, go to the Swiss Alps,
go to Tibet, go to Vegas,
but take my advice, though, you know,
don't ever forget where you come from.
Mm-mm, don't ever forget that, okay?
All right, lecture's over.
Oh, oh, hey, hey, let her go.
She'll be all right.
Don't worry about it.
Hey, where were you?
We need to head back.
So you decided?
Decided what?
Decided what?
How you're gonna spend
all your money, man.
You're not a loser
anymore, Mark, you're rich.
I can't believe you forgot that.
Okay, okay, okay, I'm
gonna go first, all right?
All right, first thing I'm gonna buy
is a 1972 green Plymouth Fury,
and black Trans
Am like Burt Reynolds,
or no, fuck it, a red one.
And then I, and then I'm gonna
buy a hundred dollars cigar
and I'm gonna smoke it and
drive the Trans Am to Las Vegas,
and I'm gonna meet the
most beautiful showgirl.
Fuck, fuck me, buy the most
beautiful showgirl in Las Vegas.
Yeah, fuck it now,
maybe I'll just settle
down, raise a family.
Not with a showgirl,
with someone else,
but I gotta, you know,
'cause I'm not young
anymore like you guys.
I ain't a teenager.
In Las Vegas?
What's wrong with Vegas?
That place is alive, man.
It's got big ass churches.
I mean, you only live once.
I just want to get away from here,
leave, never come back.
Amen to that.
I've always wanted to leave,
ever since I was a little girl,
but you can't just leave a place
like this when you want to.
It traps you, never lets you escape,
and nobody cares.
Nobody caress about us.
Whether we live or die,
what difference does it make?
We're just scum.
Okay, well, I could
spend hours talking to you,
but five minutes is enough for me.
Ah, I'm hungry.
Are you really
heading to that kitchen?
I'm not going to cook anything.
Never followed
a recipe in my whole life.
Just gonna go order a
pizza or some chink food.
My treat.
Oh yeah. One more thing,
I think you know that I
don't have high expectations
when it comes to people,
so don't even think of
leaving with that briefcase.
I think you know
the consequences of that.
Just telling you 'cause,
you know, we're all friends.
See, it's nothing.
You could have died.
But we are still here.
There's somebody there.
Don't look at me like that.
I know what I saw.
Okay, don't worry.
I'll go ahead and have a look, okay?
Oh my God.
Mark, what?
This is the dirtiest
place I've ever seen.
You never know,
but I'm sure there's
nothing to worry about.
And what can I find there, an alien?
But don't let your guard down, okay?
I want you to go back.
Forget it.
Nik, listen to me,
we can't risk screwing all this up.
I want you to take the
gun and wait for Abraham
next to the briefcase, all right?
I'll be back before you
can say cheeseburger.
Uh, fuck this.
Listen, uh, Donna, I just,
will you just let me...
Well, I, can I just talk, please,
just for a minute?
Okay, uh, I got the,
I'm getting this money tomorrow
and it's gonna fix everything now.
No, I disagree with you.
That's not what I meant.
It's not what I meant at all.
Listen, he's my son, okay?
He's my son forever.
Do you-
Since when?
You won't want me to beg, don't you?
I know you do.
Oh, you, you know what?
You don't, Donna?
Fuck you, fuck you.
What a remarkable bitch.
Well, well, well.
Where the hell am I?
Oh, fuck.
Seems like another,
oh, like another corridor, oh, man.
Fuck, why did they make it so big?
Hey, hey!
Don't give up on me now.
Yeah, perfect.
Oh, or nothing.
Come on, where are you?
And what the hell is that?
A prop from "Shining"?
There you are.
Hey, hey!
Okay, stop joking.
Turn around slowly.
Hands where I can see them.
What the fuck?
That's not possible.
You have to help me, Nik.
Christ, Tina, again?
Please, please listen to me.
I, I need your help,
and I, I need some money,
anything, anything.
No, no, enough.
No more money.
If you want help,
you know what to do.
No, no, I can do it on my own.
I, I, I want to get better.
I, I, I need money,
I need something.
Look at yourself, Tina.
You gotta quit that shit.
Go to hell.
Listen to me, Tina,
I'm sorry.
Go to hell!
Get the fuck out of here.
I'm tired.
I'm sorry.
Please, please, please.
Please, please, Nik.
Nik, I can't do it without you.
I'm sorry.
Tina, it's me, open the door.
Tina, open the door!
Tina, open the fucking door!
Who are you?
What do you want form me?
What do you want from me?
Bring her to me.
Over my dead body.
Don't do that.
Abe, there's somebody here.
There's somebody here.
I saw him.
- Oh, my God, I knew it.
- What?
That son of a bitch.
- Who?
- Jacob.
He's trying to fuck us over.
I'm gonna, I swear to
God, I'm gonna kill him.
Where's Mark?
God damn.
I remember when I was a kid,
they used to tell stories
about this psycho Russian.
Well, he was just
fucked in the head,
but anyway,
his name was, um, Sergei.
Sergei something, Rostof.
Sergei Bokof, Sergei Bokof, yeah.
He built a nuclear bunker
because he was convinced that
they were gonna drop the bomb
sooner or later.
Funny thing is that the old bastard
is still waiting for it to happen.
Shit, still here.
What the hell is this?
I don't like the look of that.
Oh my God.
Mark! Mark!
Mark! Mark!
Babe, no, babe!
Abe, help me!
Go away!
Help me.
We got to get out of here.
We have to get him out, please.
Abe, I'm begging you,
take her out of here.
Help me.
Shh, shh, shh.
Mark, please stop.
You don't understand.
Leave me here, leave me here.
Go away!
What happened down there, huh?
Jesus Christ,
who did this to you?
I mean, what the hell
is going on around here?
You don't understand.
You go out while
you still have time.
Take her out of here.
He wants her.
We have to get him out.
We have to get him out!
I'm a bad man.
Fucking shit!
You will be mine!
Forgive me.
Hey Nik, come over here
and look at this.
Come over here and look.
Jesus Christ, son of a bitch.
What the fuck is that?
Not so fast.
We have to get out, Abe!
We have to get out.
Look, the way I see it, we
got two choices, all right?
We can either forget about
the money and run away.
Or what?
Let me end this story
like every other story
in this scumbag
neighborhood, all right?
For you, Mark, and for your kid.
You see, I got
a kid too, all right?
A son, he doesn't care about me.
He doesn't wanna
see me or hear for me.
I, I don't blame him,
but right now, you can
fix your future, okay?
So let me fix this, all right?
Let me do just one thing, right?
I'm gonna go down there.
If I see any more of these
things, fucking bad for them.
And then if I don't come
back through that door,
you're gonna stay here real calm,
you're gonna wait
for that son of a bitch.
You're gonna grab that
money and you're gonna go.
You're gonna never look back.
What do you mean, "No?"
I'm coming with you.
Well, that's out of the question.
Will that be enough?
Yeah, I always like to be prepared.
It's all the same to me.
Half the money's still mine.
Never turning back, right?
What are we looking for?
I ain't got the slightest idea.
Whatever it is is gonna be bad.
Story of my life.
What's the plan?
What's the plan?
What's the plan?
We shoot the mother fuckers.
Oh Christ.
Your plan is perfect.
Who the hell is that?
He's the man I saw.
He's a dead man.
Oh my God.
Oh my God.
Oh my God, Abe.
Now is your time.
You are mine.
Jesus Christ.
Stay cool.
Stay cool.
You will die.
After you.
I know him.
He's the homeless guy.
Oh, wait, wait, he's that hobo
that hangs around the mission.
That's really the whack job.
What have they done to him?
Eh, it's too late to ask him.
And who are they?
Oh my God, what's happening?
Whoa, whoa, whoa, you
dirty hobo son of a bitch!
God damn, fuck!
That should do it.
The people in the neighborhood
didn't just disappear.
They ended up down here.
Something drew them
here, as it did us.
Right, but what?
These creatures seem weak.
They're like babies.
And we just find the mommy.
We need a bigger goddamn weapon.
Abe, what's going on?
Well, I'd say it's a blackout,
but I know you wouldn't believe me.
Abe! Abe!
Abe! Abe!
Abe, where are you, Abe?
Who did you think it was?
That's not possible.
Hey, what's wrong?
Is everything okay, sweetie?
Never leave me again.
Until the end of time.
Mark, Mark!
You are mine!
Jesus Christ.
Where the hell are you?
Daddy, I was waiting for you.
Ernie, what are you,
what are you doing here?
I was waiting for you.
Where is your mother?
I was waiting for you.
I was waiting for you.
I was waiting for you.
I was waiting for you.
I was waiting for you.
I was waiting for you.
I was waiting for you.
Son of a bitch, son of a bitch.
You goddamn mother fucker!
You trying to give me
a goddamn heart attack?
Get that out of my face.
We have to get out.
We have to get out!
Something is wrong.
Something is really wrong.
We should already be out.
How is that possible?
I got no idea.
I have no idea, 'cause none
of this makes any sense.
Something's got into our heads, Abe.
What the hell are you talking about?
This thing that hides here
doesn't want to let us go.
It needs us.
If it didn't, we'd already be dead.
Great, must be a secondary exit.
Every bunker has one.
What do we got to lose?
What should we do?
I don't know, I don't know.
No, I'm all right.
You know, I never imagined
it would end up like this.
Tell me about it.
I'm sorry.
For what?
For everything, for Mark.
Life, life's,
life's a bitch.
Eh, you gotta look
at the bright side, hm?
I'll never see the light of day again.
No more shitty days.
You still have a lot of
work to do on your pep talks.
You know that, right?
Oh, okay, okay, okay.
Nik, you need to make me a promise.
A promise?
When you get out of here,
you gotta find my son.
His name's Ernie, okay?
And then when you find
him, you gotta apologize.
Tell him his dad is sorry
for everything, okay?
Why can't you do it yourself?
I ain't gonna get out of here.
Look at me!
Jesus, look at me, will you?
What are you talking about?
Look, you're gonna go out,
you're gonna find my son, Ernie,
and you're gonna keep
your promise to me,
you're gonna tell him
that, that, that dad's
very sorry for everything.
Okay, I need you to keep
that promise for me, okay?
Okay, I promise.
Is it just me or is it hot in here?
Come on, anybody home?
This place is a shit hole.
Where is Abraham?
He's gone.
Is he, by chance, the
one lying on the sofa?
There's a real party atmosphere here.
Okay, enough with the pleasantries.
As long as that's here,
everything is fine with me.
A deal is a deal.
You can count it if you like.
Enough, party girl.
What's inside?
Inside what?
The briefcase.
You're telling me
you didn't open it?
Stuff that's out of this world.
