Father of Flies (2021) Movie Script

give me your robo-ear.
Come on,
I wanna show you something.
You'll like it.
What's on the cards
today, sport?
Maybe Donna will take you to the mall,
you're due for a cut, Shaggy.
Dad, it's fine the way it is.
He likes it.
Just don't let her convince
you to dye it gray, okay?
You think you'll have a chance to take him
to Mimi's this week?
what the hell is that?
What the hell is it?
Christ only knows why one man
needs so many dogs.
Hey, hey, hey, slow down!
I'm glad you're hanging
around for a few days.
That's okay.
I'm grateful to you.
Maybe it's time to discuss
making you more of
a permanent fixture here.
Yeah, I'd love that.
Are you sure you're
okay with the kids today?
We're getting on like a house on fire.
Good, that's good, right?
House on fire.
Good morning...
here comes the neighborhood.
Morning Mrs. Start.
Broomstick and everything.
Don't go too far!
What the fuck are you doing?
Come on, let's go.
Does your father know
he spent the night?
Does Mom know you did?
Excuse me?
See you around.
Has someone been
sneaking in my potting shed
and swiping themselves some flowers?
Are those
for your dear mother, Michael?
Do be sure they get to her, Michael.
She will love them.
Where's Mommy?
Oh Michael, you
know she can't be here.
It's here.
I made you something.
what'd you think?
Oh hey, hi.
Oh Christ,
shitty weather.
How are the kids?
Hey little man.
I hear you've been
giving Coral a hard time.
She's really making an effort with you,
can you at least try
a little bit with her?
I really don't know what you want from me.
I just want Mom home.
we talked about this.
Mom and Dad decided that it's better
that you and Donna live with
Dad until Mom feels better.
I'll tell you what.
If I get home from work early tomorrow,
I'll take you to the store
and you can pick out some
flowers of your own for Mom,
and then you can go and surprise her.
Do you promise?
Yes, I promise.
All right, almost bed time.
10 minutes, then sleep.
Hello there children.
It's your favorite clown.
welcome to my world
of arts and crafts.
and now what have we got.
Ooh, ooh,
Also been
charged with child abuse,
as well as falsifying public records.
Now this is the first
of those several cases
that actually make it to trial.
Nobody's there.
Starting at
9:30 here on Superior Court
behind me, and the judge told the....
You can't be serious.
What are you doing?
Can I see the children?
Absolutely not, no.
No, look at yourself for Christ's sake.
What are you thinking?
I'm allowed to see my children.
Linda, no.
You are not coming in this house.
You're not coming in.
I'm not leaving without my-
- Linda, no.
No, not tonight.
- We're not doing it.
- Mom?
- Michael go to your room.
- Michael!
- Michael, sweetie.
- Now!
I'm not leaving without my...
- Linda, Linda.
- without Michael.
- I'm not leaving without Michael.
- Listen to me.
- Listen to me!
- No!
- I can't help you with this.
- It's my!
I can't help you with this anymore.
I'm here for our kids, but
I'm no longer here for you,
you need to leave right now.
You need to see a professional.
Please leave
or I'll call the police.
Darling, every family has its demons.
Not right now, okay.
Don't be sad, I know you will
But don't give up and tell
Stay with me, come on,
come on, stay with me.
True love will find you in the end
I have to go home.
Can't stand being around
that creepy Mary Poppins.
You know,
the other day I caught
her just staring at herself
for at least 20 minutes.
Not doing anything, just
wearing that mask.
Have you seen it?
You don't wear
that mask too now, do you?
Maybe when I'm old and ugly.
You'll never be old and ugly.
I don't even
know anything about her.
Where did she come from?
Where did he even meet her?
I dunno, probably
some asshole convention.
She wants me out.
That much I'm sure of.
Well in that case,
we better get you home
before the evil witch
puts a hex on your room.
Shut up.
Or, you know, change the locks.
More likely.
Want me to walk you home like this?
- Yeah.
- All right, let's go.
The term parasitic has a
different meaning
when used in regards to mammals.
A brood parasite, in these
terms, such as a cuckoo,
will hijack an already
established nest, home,
or family unit.
In the case of a true brood
parasite, such as the bumble bee,
they will kill the existing queen
in order to take over the
nest with her own offspring.
how is everything, dear?
Do you miss him?
Every moment of every day.
We were together 44 years when he crossed.
That's a lot of life together.
I miss having someone to ask
me, do you remember when?
All of those experiences
and all of that life lived,
and now,
I've just myself
and my...
fading memories.
And my attempt to recall
if it ever...
even happened.
You see Michael, we are linked.
This world and the next.
And the things we do in
this world
echo in the next.
I just want Mommy home.
I know Michael.
I know.
You have to visit her.
She's your mom, can't keep avoiding it.
Come on, I'll take you.
You have to forgive her some time.
Just take me home, Sam.
...30 minutes ago,
such a horrific crime based on...
- Mommy?
- three of
the four victims,
there were injuries discovered.
Appears to have
been blunt force trauma
and the use of sharp objects.
Hey trouble.
Donna, the music.
Turn the music down?
Donna, music off, now.
Fuck off.
This behavior of yours, we
won't tolerate it any longer.
- Where are you Mommy, are you sick?
- Hey, I know what you're going through.
Oh please, you think you
know what I'm going through?
When are you coming to get me?
Have you been to visit Mom yet?
I'm still here for you.
It's important that you know that.
I'm headed out tomorrow for a
few days, but when I get back.
I'm here for you.
I wanna help.
P fucking S, I'm fucking leaving. Again.
know, no wonder Mom cracked.
I'm your father and I love you,
but I will not allow you
to talk to me that way.
Hello Mommy.
You know, I can't replace
her the way you are.
There's money on the
fridge if you need it.
Absolutely ridiculous.
I'm out there, I'm not
just representing myself,
it's not vanity, I'm
representing the company.
I just don't think it
reflects particularly well,
they got a guy in there
wearing the same outfit
two days in a row.
Is Dad really going?
Oh uh.
You left...
this downstairs.
it's a boy.
We're all gonna get
along like a house on fire.
Come on son,
it's time to go to sleep.
I think there's
something under my bed.
Michael, there is
nothing under your bed.
I promise.
Time to man up.
But there is, it's a monster.
Coral made it.
Daddy, I think
there's something in my bed.
Jesus sweetheart, you scared
the daylights out of me.
Is everything all right?
Yeah, just this stupid
thing must be broken.
listening to KWBCE,
I'm your host Josh Witchard, and...
What on Earth?
I didn't turn the light off.
Everything in this house is busted.
Oh fuck off Coral, stay
in the fucking dark
you stupid witch.
Well honey,
Mommy is thinking about
getting a new job.
She's not
gonna be my mom anymore?
Oh no sweetheart,
she's always going to be your mommy.
But we are thinking about
moving to a wonderful new place
called Washington DC.
Murder capital of the USA?
Well, hello there children.
It's your favorite clown,
and welcome to my world
of arts and crafts.
now, what have we got here?
ho ho ho,
what have we got here?
All the colors of the rainbow.
And I got yellow and blue.
Clear blue sky with the
sun shining through.
Oh ho, I think there's
storm clouds overhead.
On candy-stripe legs
the spider man comes
Softly through the
shadow of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows
of the blissfully dead
Looking for
That's right, like, like.
Spider man is having you for dinner
Wake up in the shivering cold
I'm so scared.
- That is actually-
- I know.
I know.
Who's this bitch?
- Excuse me?
- I'm so sorry.
Well fuck you.
No no, what is wrong with you?
That's mad fucking rude.
Nothing, what are you doing?
Nothing, Donna, Donna.
Relax okay.
You need to chill out.
Here take this.
What the fuck do you want?
Stop drinking.
I'm not my fucking mother, Sam.
I didn't say you were.
What the fuck you doing?
What the fuck, you know you're
just like
every single guy I know.
A useless sack of shit.
What happened to you?
You know what fucking happened.
Gently as she glides.
If the stranger's hiding
there, better run and hide.
better run and hide.
Row row your boat,
gently down the stream.
Get your mommy...
and listen to her scream.
over here,
and listen to her scream.
and listen to her scream.
Shouting Mommy, Mommy,
Mommy, it's
raining Mommy and I'm scared.
Mrs. Start?
Don't be afraid.
What's happened to me?
away from the darkness.
Don't look at it.
Do not touch it.
What does it want?
It's not here for you.
Remember what I taught you.
The things we do in this world.
Mrs. Start.
Mrs. Start, come back!
Mrs. Start, Mrs. Start!
Wait, wait Mrs. Start, wait!
Come back.
Mrs. Start.
Let me in.
Aren't you going to come in?
It's okay, it's okay.
I'm here.
Are you wearing mom's clothes?
Can finally say our proper goodbye.
Are you high Donna?
You look a complete mess.
Come and have a cup of tea.
Your father doesn't
have to know about this.
What are you doing
with that fucking blade?
I was scared, I was here alone.
No one is available to take your call.
Please leave a message after tone.
Hi honey, I'm on my way
home sooner than expected.
I love you,
see you soon.
I'm so sorry.
Ssh, it's okay.
It's okay.
Mom, I don't understand.
It's okay, it's okay.
It's my fault.
Your lies will find you in the end
You'll find out just
who was your friend
Don't be sad I know you will
But don't give up until
True love will find you in the end
We're going
on a little adventure, okay?
No no no, don't open the door.
Mommy's just gonna drive
for a little bit, okay.
We're going on a little adventure.
We're together now.
What have you done?
Michael, Michael, Michael.
come on,
come on,
stay with me!
Stay with me, stay with me.
Michael, Michael stand up.
Stand up.
True love will find you
Go, go, everything
will be fine, go Michael.
Go to the light, don't look back.
I can't go with you
where you're going.
Hi honey.
- What's happened?
I don't know what's going on.
Coral, Coral calm down.
What's happened to Donna?
She was drunk, I was trying to help.
I was scared.
Had this accident with knife.
What accident, what knife?
Someone's been inside this
house, ever since Michael-
- Coral, Coral,
calm down, I can't understand.
Everything keeps
moving around the house.
Michael's room.
The door to Michael's room.
I've been here alone.
And I have been trying.
I have been trying...
I've been trying to keep it together.
calm down.
What happened to Donna?
She was drunk.
I was trying to help her.
- All right, just-
- I'm scared for my baby, you see?
Sit tight, moments away.
Jesus Christ.
911, what's your emergency?
Yes, I...,
I need help.
There's been an accident at my home.
Jesus, Coral. Pick up for God's Sake.
Go Michael!
Go Michael!
Can I see the children?
Absolutely not.
I would like to see my children!
I'm here for the kids,
but I am no longer here for you.
