It's Alive III: Island of the Alive (1987) Movie Script

Hey, hey, hurry UP-
There's a girl giving
birth in my fuckin' cab.
Oh, shit.
Six weeks on the force,
and I'm getting into this.
Go on, go on.
You cops know how to deliver babies.
Oh, yeah, sure, right.
I deliver them all the time.
Listen, there's a phone
down on that corner.
Go call an ambulance.
Woman: Help me.
Help me.
Officer: Take it easy.
It'll be all right.
Can you put her on the
sidewalk or somethin'?
I don't care about the fare.
Just get her out of my cab.
Would you hurry?
Woman: Something's wrong.
Officer: It'll be all right.
Oh, something's wrong.
31 years drivin' a cab in
New York, I've never been
robbed, never been mugged,
but I never should have
picked up a pregnant woman.
- Breathe deep.
- I can't!
Would you get going?
I should have locked the
fuckin' doors when I saw her.
Talk to me. Talk to me.
What are you doin' alone?
Where's the husband?
I don't even know who the father is.
I should have never had the baby.
Relax, push, push.
Oh, God, it's coming.
It's coming, take it easy.
It's easy.
Oh, shit.
What's wrong with my baby?
It's one of them!
What?! What?!
Man: A priest found it
when he opened up this morning.
At least what's left of it.
He lost a lot of blood before he died.
That's some baby.
You guys ever see a baby like this?
It took four bullets before it died.
They're being born faster
than we can kill 'em.
What the hell did it want in here?
Oh my God.
Man: Now, how many of these
mutations are in question?
At the moment there are
five in custody, Your Honor,
but we have every reason to
believe that more are being
kept hidden.
We've already seen copies of these.
Man 2: I'm sure you have, Your
Honor, and I'm also sure
that opposing counsel has
nothing to add to this
comprehensive research.
So I see no reason to continue
to waste the court's time.
Your Honor, we are arguing for a stay of
these unlawful executions--
I object to the term
executions, Your Honor.
Any actions which have
been taken have been taken
strictly in self-defense.
Are you going to deny
that you have
execution squads roaming this
country with orders to kill
these infants on sight?
Objection, Your Honor.
Dr. Brewster, we recognize
your credentials as an
expert in this field, but
we'll tolerate no further
Yes, Your Honor.
Please, let's not allow
this to be degraded into
some maudlin play for
sympathy by depicting these
creatures as infants.
Now, I can't account for them.
Medical science can't account for them.
Let's not ever mistake
them for human beings.
They are human beings.
My child's a human being,
you son of a bitch.
Remove Mr. Jarvis from the court.
We ask that he be allowed
to stay, Your Honor.
We have our reasons.
Fine, Officer.
Very well, Mr. Ralston.
I've requested that one of them
be brought into this court.
We had one of them
transferred from a medical
facility nearby to the
courthouse early this morning.
Mr. Jarvis, do you have
any objection to your child
being brought into this court?
My child?
Judge: Yes.
No, not at all.
We'll take a brief adjournment
while it's brought in here.
He's deliberately using
your child in an attempt
to make his point.
If he can show the judge
that you're afraid of your
own baby, terrified of
it, despite all we say in
its defense, then he's won.
What am I supposed to do?
Do you believe in what we're doing?
I don't want him to die, but
I'm scared shitless of him.
Observer: ls that human?
Oh my God.
It looks like a thing.
Take your seats, take your seats.
May the record show that
the infant born of the parents
Stephen and Ellen Jarvis on
the 14 of March of this year has
been admitted to this court.
Mr. Jarvis, can you identify
this child as your own?
Yes, it's my child.
Objection, Your Honor, how
can a man sitting halfway
across the court--
courtroom, make an identification
of something inside
a cage, barely visible to him?
The point is well taken.
Mr. Jarvis, would it be
preferable for you to get up
and take a closer look
before making a positive
Would you go over to the cage, please,
and look in and make an identification?
Would you go over and bend
down, please, and look
into that cage, Mr. Jarvis?
Now, let's not be hesitant, Mr. Jarvis.
After all, it's just a little baby.
It won't bite you.
Will counsel please
refrain from speaking to the
witness when he's attempting
to make identification?
Your Honor, can't we
simply stipulate that this
is the Jarvis child and get on with it?
Will both counsels please be silent?
Mr. Jarvis, I realize this
is very difficult for you.
Would you please lean over
and look into the cage?
All right, I'm goin', I'm goin', okay?
We can understand Mr. Jarvis' fear.
After all, one of these
creatures attacked and
killed Frank Davis when
he tried to help it.
Another one attacked Eugene
Scott, who tried to help it.
These creatures will attack
and try to kill anyone
who gets close to them.
That's a lie, and I'm not afraid.
Mr. Jarvis is an actor
by profession, as we know,
but this is surely among his
least effective performances.
Can't you see it's
this baby that's afraid?
The lights, the guns.
It's afraid for its little life.
You want to live?
I don't even know if you
understand me, but if you want
to live, I can't just look in this cage.
This asshole's winning this case.
Do you know that?
Do you understand that?
And if I just stand and
look in the cage,
we're lost and you're dead.
Get away.
Somebody get him away
before he gets clawed.
Now the only way we're
going to win this case is if
I put my hands inside
this cage and touch you.
Stephen, don't.
But if you hurt me,
then we're in deep trouble
'cause then the asshole wins.
We don't want the asshole
to win, all right?
Your Honor, as you can
see, this is an animal,
a vicious animal.
Not a human, but a perversion
of everything human.
Don't make any noises, all right?
Now it is our job to
protect even the lives of
well-meaning fools like this man.
Don't, Jarvis, don't
put your hand in there.
Sir, you'll get hurt.
No, wait a minute, wait a minute.
Get him away from there.
Mr. Jarvis, get back to your seat.
Mr. Jarvis, will you resume your seat?
Don't scare him.
If you scare him he's gonna hurt someone.
Please, let go of me.
They're pulling me away
because they don't understand.
No, no, no, let him talk, let him talk.
Your Honor, please, tell them to stop.
Stop this, don't you understand?
He's just a baby and he's scared.
He's got to defend himself
because they're trying
to kill him.
When the other babies were
born, they had them murdered
in the goddamn operating
room right in front of him.
You don't think this baby knows?
He's just a baby, and he knows.
They put a chain around
his neck, they put him
in a cage, they bring him in here.
They've got guns all
around him, and lights.
How would you feel if you
were born into a world
that looked at you and wanted you dead?
It's crying.
He's just a baby.
He's just scared.
Now there must be someplace
on Earth, Your Honor,
where he can live, and
where they won't hurt him,
and where he won't have to hurt them.
Take him, Stephen.
Take your son.
Put your guns away.
Holster those guns.
Mr. Jarvis, you're to retire
to the security block
with your child.
Counselors, I'll see
you both in my chambers.
I won't have anything
happen to that child.
Good evening, good evening.
And welcome to open-mic
night at the boat house
in Cape Vale, Florida.
Absolutely, there's no
other place you could be.
Hey, just walking into the club, sir?
Very nice suit.
You got an act with that suit, sir?
How you been?
What did you do, hire a detective?
No, your mother told me where you were.
Is that all?
Thank you.
I should've known.
I can't talk now.
When do you get off?
We can talk then.
Stephen, I'm very happy working here.
The kids don't hit on me
and I'm getting good pay
and nobody knows who I am.
Well, of course not.
They didn't take many pictures of you.
They didn't need me.
They had you, the great actor.
Now you're getting a lead
role after all those walk-ons.
Leave me alone.
Please, you know, it wasn't just us.
There were others.
Why do you, why do you think
it only happened to us?
It didn't just happen to us.
Same thing could've happened again.
There haven't been any in two months.
The experts say there won't be any.
Experts. How can anybody be an
expert on something they
know nothing about?
Stephen, I have a guy.
He's an older man, he's a friend.
He's very nice.
And he doesn't know anything about it.
Would you risk having a child with him?
We can't have any more children.
How did that happen?
I had it done.
Sure don't take any chances, do you?
It's better like this, you know.
You, you could never forget.
You could never leave it alone.
It was the big event of your life.
Hey, come on now, Ellen.
What, are you trying to hurt me?
It's easy, go ahead.
Hurt you? I still have nightmares.
I can't bear the thought of him.
I can't bear the thought
of what might have been.
I thought I was gonna have
such a beautiful baby.
Anyway, he's alive somewhere
Because of you, Stephen.
You should be proud.
Are you proud?
I'm lonely.
Is he bugging you, Ellen?
No, I'm fine, thanks.
Enjoy the show, buddy.
Ellen, would the marriage
have lasted if the kid
hadn't been that way?
I guess not.
I guess whatever we had for
each other just wasn't enough.
Ordering a whiskey sour, a vodka tonic,
a Virgin Mary straight up.
This is my best joke in the
world, ladies and gentlemen.
Thank you very much, thank you.
Here, Chico.
This whole pier is getting to
be a meat market, isn't it?
Kids think they own this town.
They're okay.
How about a little
adult companionship, huh?
No, thanks.
Got a place right around the corner.
And I got some, some great
videotapes you might like.
You know, grown-up stuff.
Not tonight.
And I get the Disney channel.
Okay, you don't know what you're missing.
On the house.
You've got a great arm.
Wait 'til you see the rest of me.
Hey, Mister.
Is this for me?
Take it easy.
I'm not charging you by the hour.
Oh, you got a weekly rate?
Say, when was the last time
you made love to a woman, huh?
It shows, huh?
God, you're like a high-school kid.
I was good as a high-school kid.
And it's been about that long.
Since this is a such a
big night in your life,
let's make it very special.
You have great skin.
You really do.
Hey, wait a minute.
You know, I think I've
made love to you before.
No, I...
You'd have remembered if
you'd made love to me.
You look awfully familiar.
Hey, what's the matter?
Did I do something to turn you off?
No, no.
It's all right.
You know, guys talk to me.
It does them good.
I got to catch a flight.
Why is it whenever I meet the nice ones,
they're always in a hurry?
Why don't you stick around a while?
I could make you a couple of
eggs and some coffee, and...
No, thanks.
You know, I can't get
over the feeling I've
seen you somewhere before.
Do you come up to Cape Vale much?
No, I've never been here before.
Well, what do you do?
I was an actor.
Nothing big, mainly commercials.
I believe it.
You're good enough looking to be on TV.
Hey, you know who you look like?
Now, don't get mad, but
that guy on the news
who went to court over his baby.
You know that awful
thing about the monsters?
People think I'm ignorant,
but I got cable news
on all the time, and
that guy, he could have
been a brother to you.
God, he looks so much like you.
That's who I am.
I'm Stephen Jarvis in person.
Oh, shit.
I really know how to pick 'em.
Don't be worried--
Let me go, get your hands off of me.
I'm healthy, they've run tests on me--
Leave me alone. Get your hands off of me!
It's not catching.
How do you know?
How does anybody know?
You know, you should
tell people who you are
before you put your hands on 'em.
You should let a woman
know who you are before
you try and make love to her.
I don't want your dirty,
filthy money, either.
Just get out of here.
Go on, get out.
You're a freak.
You're sick and you make me sick, too.
Get out, you freak!
You're sick!
Oh God, he touched me.
Your Honor, may I interject?
No, you may not.
The five children already
in captivity will have
no harm done to them.
Instead, I am recommending
that a commission be formed
for the sole purpose of
locating some isolated spot
where they can be left and
allowed to develop in their
I can see no way that these
beings can be compatible
in our society.
However, I think my colleagues
in the Supreme Court
will recognize that we have
no right to destroy them.
But we can quarantine them.
I'm going to appeal this, of course.
Be my guest.
But no harm will come to these children
as long as I'm alive.
If I may ask, where
exactly do you plan to put
these things where they
won't harm anybody?
Where no human being has ever lived.
I don't know where they've
been taken, but I put
my trust in Judge Watson.
Then you're not even
going to try to find out
what happened to your child?
Well, the parents and
I on the committee have
talked about it, we think
it's best to just let it pass.
Are you aware, Mr.
Jarvis, that there's a lot
of speculation that they
might be up in Alaska
or Newfoundland at some sort
of a government installation?
I don't know about that,
but I do think they ought
to find out the cause.
Make sure it never happens again.
Yes, let's hope it never happens again.
When we return, we'll be
accepting your telephone
calls for Mr. Jarvis, the
spokesman for the Parents' Group.
But first, this important
message of interest.
All right, boss, isn't
it about time you told us?
What are we huntin' on this island?
You'll be surprised.
It's not a pleasure trip.
It's business, strictly business.
You know, it's a wonder
nobody's tried to develop
this island.
Is that what you've got in mind?
No one wants to come here.
There's a treacherous reef.
It rains most of the time.
Besides, the government did
a series of secret tests
here about a dozen years back.
Oh, shit!
Most of it's gone by now, anyway.
I'll tell you one thing though, friend.
Nobody's going to build
a fancy hotel here, ever.
Come on.
You stay here.
Hey, what are they?
They stocked the island
for us to hunt.
Nothing lives here.
Stocked it with what?
Here, pass out this suntan
oil and this bug repellent.
My own brand.
The best in the market.
You can always trust a Cabot
product, am I right, boys?
Come on out, you sons of bitches.
Come on.
We're waiting for you.
God damn it, we should have
brought more men on this thing.
We haven't got enough damn men here.
They're infants, Jake, infants.
What's it take to kill an infant, anyway?
Come on.
Scotty, can you get up there
and see if you can find access?
Sure thing, Mr. Cabot.
No problem.
Then go.
It cost me a small
fortune to find out where
they put those infants.
You know damn well I wouldn't
have come here if I'd known.
Look, we've already took
the drugs off the market
and besides, there's no
proof that the drug caused
the mutations.
That's right.
And maybe in five or six
years, with luck, we can
put those drugs back on
the market, maybe under
some other name, but not if
those scientists come back here,
do further research, stir
the whole mess up again.
If they do come back here,
we're here to see that
they find nothing left alive.
You wanted 'em, you've got 'em.
What the hell is that?
Christ. I never thought
they'd move that fast.
Yeah, watch me.
Give me the gun.
Give me the goddamn gun.
Oh, shit.
My arm!
I guess you made most
of your living from
commercials and now no one
wants you associated with
their product.
Yeah, they took every
spot I ever did off the TV.
Negative image, you know?
Listen, I hate to add to
your troubles, but, well,
I'm afraid I've got to send
you that piece of paper.
Oh, you mean the bill?
That had to happen sooner or later.
Look, Stephen, I tried to
cut my bill to a fraction
of the normal fee, but, you
know, the expenses of going
to trial, statements, staff, transcripts.
It's just been astronomical.
Yeah, but the committee
raised some money, didn't they?
Very little.
A lot of people felt this
wasn't a very popular cause.
No telethons, right?
Right, no telethons.
Oh, here's the Editor in
Chief and Head of Promotions
for Garnett Publications.
Mr Stewart, Miss Garson.
I don't want to make money out of this.
What's wrong with telling
your side of the story?
They wanna hear my side
of the story, they'd read
the court record.
Oh, we'll include excerpts,
but you're the only one
with the personal detail.
What happened between you and your wife
behind closed doors.
We're talking about
having a hardcover edition
come out in April.
I'm sure we'll be on the
top of the nonfiction list--
Look, Stephen, we don't
even have to ask your
permission on this.
When I came aboard, you
signed a contract with me.
If you look on page 17 of that agreement,
you assigned me the ancillary
rights to this case.
That means book, TV, movie rights.
You mean you're gonna
merchandise it, too?
Are you going to sell baby Jarvis dolls?
Come on, Stephen.
How are you gonna earn a living?
Earn a living?
I got plenty of things I can do.
I've waited tables and...
but I don't suppose they'll wanna have me
touchin' their food anymore.
He'll change his mind.
What if I denounce the book, huh?
That's been done before,
and it never hurts sales.
Just gets us a lot of
free space in the press.
Well, if you've got
everything all sewed up,
then what the hell are
you talkin' to me for?
We still have to get
the family photographs.
Oh, Mr. Jarvis, excuse
me, please, but could I
get your autograph?
You know, I've been
an actor for 14 years,
and no one's ever asked
me for my autograph.
I think I have a pen here somewhere.
Just write it to Cynthia and Frank.
To Cynthia and Frank.
Best regards, Stephen Jarvis,
father of the monster.
Is that supposed to be funny?
I think you'd be the last one to laugh.
Am I laughing?
Did you hear the new one?
They took baby Jarvis the
other day for his shots,
and he stole the gun away from the doctor.
I think you're weird.
Say, do you know, do
you know baby Jarvis'
favorite television program?
Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.
For him, it's a training film.
That's in very bad taste, okay?
Do you know baby Jarvis
went to the dentist the
other day, and he had his fangs capped?
Stephen, we're not
going to be asking you to
come back to the hospital anymore.
Our grant's been canceled
and they've pulled the
plug on us, so to speak.
With no new babies born
in the last six months,
no more fear, no more money.
Oh, I see.
There's no more murders,
therefore there's no more
interest, right?
Stephen, I am completely
committed to this thing.
I'm going to spend all
of my spare time on it.
But you know, I've got to live, too.
I understand you're writing a book?
Who told you that?
I think it was on Entertainment Tonight.
My card.
Stephen Jarvis, father of the monster.
Can I see the baby over there?
No, not that one.
That one, right.
The one with the teeth.
It's lies, that's all.
It hurts.
There's plenty of room.
It still hurts.
Don't let the man intimidate you
if you don't like them, dear.
lam not intimidating the child.
I'm simply pointing out
that this is her style
in the size she picked.
It rubs me.
Can't she try on a new pair?
They're all the same.
She can try another style.
But this is the style I want.
Excuse me, sir, can I get some service?
I'll be with you in a minute.
Well, we bought these
shoes here the other day,
and we'd like to exchange them.
I can't take these
back, they've been worn.
Well, they're ruining my child's feet.
I need to speak to the manager.
I am the assistant manager.
I think it's outrageous
that a child should
be expected to wear a pair
of shoes that don't even fit.
None of our shoes fit.
Ask the little girl here.
That's what we're doing here,
we're ruining children's feet.
We're part of a conspiracy.
Well, I suppose you think this is funny.
And if we had shoes big
enough, we'd ruin yours.
Well, I'm writing to the head office.
I'm never shopping here again.
Let's get out of this crazy place.
I didn't like those shoes anyway.
Plunk your magic twanger, froggie!
I'm Buster Brown.
Woof, woof.
He lives in there, too.
I guess my feet are too big for you.
You're a little off
your beat, aren't you?
It's amazing how far a
man will travel to find
a pair of shoes that'll fit.
Especially when you're on
your feet as much as I am.
Did you see the newspapers this week?
I never read the newspapers.
This is a good job for
a person who hates kids.
That's too bad about Judge Watson.
I didn't send flowers.
So, what, are you going to arrest me?
So, a man dies, a policy changes.
Dr. Swenson's back and in charge now.
He's a revisionist and
a certified lunatic.
I always thought he
was a nice enough guy.
Yeah, well, believe it or
not, he wants to go back there.
Back where?
He wants to see what they're like now,
how they've grown up.
Well, it's been four years.
They grow pretty quickly, don't they?
Yeah, and the crazy part
is he wants me to go along
for security.
I'm supposed to be some kind of an expert.
Well, you're not here
to ask my permission.
Swanson wants you, too.
He is a lunatic.
Ah, he remembers how you
acted in the courtroom.
How you touched it, how it responded.
Your kid would be what,
five years old now?
They asked me to find you.
I've done that.
You're looking forward
to this, aren't you?
Come on, admit it, you son of a bitch.
You want to find out how
they turned out, right?
How long is it going
to take you to pack?
Now that you can tell
me, where'd they put him?
You'll love it.
We're going to communicate
with the subjects
and record their speech.
After all these years in isolation,
surely they've developed
a language of their own.
No question they'll have
instincts beyond ordinary humans.
After all, the Davis child
did find his way back through
the Los Angeles sewer system
to his parents' house.
We've never been able to
account for that phenomenon.
We were getting pretty lonely
walkin' around out there.
Are you gonna let us
in on what's happening?
Purely technical matters.
I know you invited
us on this expedition,
but we gotta get some
ground rules straight.
Perkins and I expect to be
equal members of this party.
You do expect us to be attacked?
Oh, we'll be armed with
weapons that will sedate
the creatures without having to kill them.
Incapacitate them long enough
for me to examine them,
draw blood and fluid samples,
and be safely away before
they can regain consciousness.
And leave them on the island
till the next expedition?
Well, surely you didn't
think we intended to
bring them here.
The government feels that
we ought to bring back at
least one subject for the
purpose of internal examinations.
Something we're not equipped
to do on the island itself.
You mean kill one of 'em
for experimental reasons?
It won't be your child.
That's out of the question, of course.
Oh, really?
What, are you gonna
butcher him on the island
or wait till you get him on the high seas?
I'll let you know when I decide upon
the government's request.
I need a breath of fresh air.
I think, gentlemen, it
would be advisable to leave
all conventional weapons on board.
Just take your stun guns and
your tranquilizer rifles,
but leave the rest of the hardware.
I wouldn't want anybody like
Ms. Morrell, shooting one
of these things between the eyes.
You know, kind of,
accidentally on purpose?
How about a compromise,
Lieutenant Perkins?
You and Jarvis will have
the conventional weapons.
We'll take the tranquilizer guns.
Yes, that way if there's
any killing to be done,
you two can do it.
That sounds like a workable compromise.
What do you say, Jarvis?
This just puts them to sleep?
That's right.
Does it hurt 'em?
Not in the least.
You're sure of that?
See you in the morning.
My doctor says I
shouldn't be on this trip.
I'm gettin' too much sun.
I'm not even there yet
and I got too much sun.
I got to put this shit
on my face all day long.
This is like one of those luxury liners.
I'm putting this shit on
a quart a day, like a rummy.
$5.75 a bottle, I'm going broke here.
You see anything out there?
You all right, Doc?
No problem.
You sure?
Fine, just fine.
You sure you are?
Believe me.
Sailing's my favorite
thing, I love it, love it.
- Hey, Doc?
- Yeah?
Doc, it's probably nothing,
but my dermatologist
tells me I shouldn't go out in the sun.
I got this little spot
I've been looking at the
last couple of days, and
I wondered if you could
take a look.
I'm not that kind of doctor.
Why do you bring the wheel
around so far on this side?
I bring it around to
get the bow to react
and then you straighten it up again.
Is that what you call meeting it?
That's right.
When you feel a reaction,
you meet it, right?
That's right.
Now, what, do you navigate by the moon?
We use the moon, the sun, the stars.
There's enough chemical
in here to put six human
beings to sleep.
Let me see that.
I love the way you touch that dart.
I'm beginning to like you.
I'm divorced, you know that, don't you?
I couldn't care less.
You know, you're ruinin' my trip.
Because of you, I'm
going down in the cabin
and short-sheet Dr Brewster.
You're a real water
person, I can see that.
What's the channel look like?
Who can tell?
Looks good.
What is this, a scientific
expedition or a glee club?
It's impossible to have a
decent conversation around here.
Hey, hey, I don't
wanna be in a boat with
that guy anymore.
He tried to capsize us.
Hey, come on now, Doctor.
You know you like me.
Yeah, sure.
I can still feel the
pain in my arm where you
shot me with that dart.
You needed a rest.
You never looked so peaceful.
I'll give you a rest.
Why don't you leave
the man alone and start
taking the expedition seriously?
You know, you're very beautiful.
Maybe it's the environment,
but you turn me on.
Can't you put a stop to this?
And I could turn you on, too.
You've seen my kid, haven't you?
That's just a glimpse of the animal in me.
Why don't you just get lost?
Stop clowning.
This isn't the time nor the place.
This is the perfect place.
We're here to visit the kids, right?
We should've brought toys and balloons.
Kids love clowns.
Jarvis, you love to bust balls.
We'll advance to the
interior of the island.
We'll be back on this
beach before nightfall,
whether we make contact or not.
10-4, Doc.
All right, fellas.
Take the boats back to the ship.
We'll follow the river up to its source.
We can't afford to go any
deeper into the jungle.
Some see these children as mutations,
but we see them as a jump
in the evolutionary pattern.
Creatures capable of
surviving a nuclear holocaust,
withstanding radiation,
even thriving on it.
So that's why the
government is so interested
all of a sudden.
Studying them may tell us where the
human race is headed.
Will you knock that off?
Hey, you admit it.
You're just as scared as everybody else.
What have I got to be scared about, huh?
Why do we have to find them?
Why don't we let them find us?
All right, it's worth a try.
We'll rest here for an hour.
Hey, don't worry.
They've already found us.
I know when I'm being watched.
Oh, I feel filthy.
I'm going to wash up.
Don't pee in the water.
What happened to Jarvis?
Well, you know Jarvis.
He's a loner. He's off in
the jungle by himself.
I don't like the idea of splitting up.
It's too dangerous.
You're the one who left the
eight guys out on the boat.
I deliberately picked a small group.
I didn't want the infants
to feel threatened.
Will you stop calling them infants?
They're five years old, Doc.
I hope you understand me.
'Cause I'm not here to hurt you.
What's this?
Scuba gear.
My God, some divers must
have visited this island.
And recently.
This stuff is brand-new.
Now why would somebody come
here with their gear
and, and leave it on the island?
Unless they didn't leave.
This expedition is all for nothing.
Somebody else made the initial contact.
Regroup everybody.
We're going back.
We'll meet you back at
the base of the falls.
You got it.
Brewster, where are you?
I can't get out of this jungle.
For hell's sake, come around here.
Where are you?
They can't hurt you.
I've got the gun.
And Perkins has the other gun.
He's okay.
Remember the assholes
in the courtroom, Son?
Well, they're back.
They've got different
faces, but they're assholes
and they're here.
So stay right where you are.
In a couple of hours they'll give up.
When it's dark they'll go.
Now, just wait us out.
What are you doing?
Trying to undermine
everything we're doing here?
How can you side with them
against the human race?
Leave 'em alone.
You should never have come here anyway.
Come here to...
Tell them to run, too.
That's right!
This is what's gonna happen
to every goddamn one of you.
The rest of you.
That's what will happen to 'em.
You should have never come here.
So leave, you assholes.
Kill it!
Kill it before it wakes up!
Brewster's dead.
Down by the waterfall.
Dr. Swenson's dead, too.
Get the lady back to the boat.
I'll take care of this.
Go on, get her out of here, come on.
Okay, okay.
You're not him, are you?
Answer me.
We're throwing the guns away.
We don't want to hurt you.
Throwing the guns away?
What are you, out of your fuckin' mind?
We've got to help her.
We can't go back.
I've got to help her.
Jarvis, she's dead.
They got her. She's dead.
They're all dead.
We gotta get back to the crew on the boat.
Jump on board.
- You got it?
- Yeah, I got it.
Morrell should have stayed with us.
Whatever she did, she didn't deserve that.
Is anybody here?
Swim! Swim like a son of a bitch.
Come on, why don't you murder me now?
I did everything I could for you.
Come on, you sons of bitches.
Come on.
I don't know how to run this boat.
You're going to probably
burn the engines out.
What are you doin'?
It's crazy.
You know, the scientists,
they thought that they'd
bring one of you back.
They didn't know that all
of you would wanna come.
We were sitting right there, singing.
ls that a child?
What, did one of you give birth?
Don't leave--
Don't leave me here in this fuckin' sun.
Don't leave me.
My doctor said no sun.
You're the one, aren't you?
You''re the one in the courtroom, right?
Now is that infant yours?
You reproduce in five years?
that means I'm a grandfather.
If we follow this course,
we'll hit the coast of Florida.
Is that what you want?
Why don't you let me throw
these bodies overboard?
Where's the captain's body?
That's not the captain.
Where is he?
You kill them,
you take their clothes.
What else do you do to 'em?
Did you say something to me?
Did you say something to me?
Oh my God.
Oh my God.
You know, I feel like
a lobster in the tank
of a seafood restaurant?
Now, where do you wanna go in Florida?
I'd like to take you to Cuba.
See what Castro would do with you.
He'd probably put you in his paella.
What do you mean, shut up?
You hear, you hear what
I say before I say it?
So I should shut up?
You want me to show you the map?
Okay, fine.
I'm showing you the map and you just point
to where you wanna go.
Cape Vale?
How did you know about Cape Vale?
You know she's there, don't you?
You want to kill her?
You want to kill her
for giving birth to you?
I'd like to kill her
for giving birth to you.
I don't know if I should
guide this boat back
to the Florida coast or scuttle it.
Even if I knew how.
There are three males and a
female on board and an infant.
I haven't seen it.
Maybe Perkins was lucky
staying on that island alone.
Being alone sounds like a terrific idea.
They seem to communicate
amongst themselves
as if they have some
kind of ESP or telepathy.
They read my mind, too.
So I can't take the chance
of wreckin' the boat.
I just try to steer a course.
This is sailing vessel Infinity.
Whiskey Yankee Kilo 5-8-4-0.
Can anyone hear me?
Do you read me?
Do you copy?
Mayday, mayday, mayday.
Mayday, mayday, mayday.
Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.
The bodies of the crew are disappearing.
So far they haven't touched me.
They want me to run the boat.
They think that if I'm
a human being, I should
know how to run a boat.
I've got the manuals and the
maps, but I don't understand
the engines or how to keep on course.
And I'm burning up too much fuel.
The bodies keep disappearin'.
Day by day they're dragged
down into the engine room.
And when they're all gone,
I'm going to look very
appetizing to them.
So far the one I think that
is my son is the only one
keeping me alive.
I don't think he can keep
'em away for much longer.
What are you doing?
What the hell good is being shipwrecked
without fucking sharks?
Man 1:
Come on, you can hear us.
Man 2:
Tell us your name.
Nothing will happen to your family.
Man 1:
The drug will make you sick.
You shouldn't have tried to escape.
It's a long voyage to the Florida coast.
Before you die, maybe you
better tell us who you are.
I'm an American.
They need help at Cape Vale.
You have violated
Cuban territorial waters.
What happened to your boat?
They have the boat and
they're near Cape Vale,
if they haven't run out of fuel.
Well, where am I?
You are the guest of
Premier Fidel Castro.
In a few hours, you will
have formal interrogation.
You will give us the names
of all your CIA contacts.
But I'm not a spy.
He threw me overboard to save my life.
- Who?
- My son.
A fine American family you have.
Your son tried to drown you?
No, please, you speak English.
You must tell them at
Cape Vale and warn them.
We're not on speaking terms with them.
You must know who I am.
They read about me in our newspapers.
Do you read our newspapers?
Yes, you've known about the monster?
But I'm famous, don't you see that?
I'm the father of the monster.
Don't you remember?
Look, the name is Jarvis.
You remember me.
This is a hospital.
You don't remember me.
I have to go all the way to
Cuba to not be remembered.
- Simone?
- Yeah.
Take over for me, will you?
I don't feel very well.
I'm going home.
You got a fever?
I feel kind of like I'm
worried sick about something.
But I don't have anything to worry about.
That's all right.
It's not a problem.
I can handle it.
Oh, I know you can.
This place doesn't need a manager.
It needs a keeper.
Hey, taking off early?
I'm not feeling very well.
Hop in.
Tony, I thought I told
you to leave me alone.
I thought you got over that.
Come on, I'll be nice.
Wait a minute.
Come on, just a minute.
Come on, I'm serious.
Now, just a minute.
Didn't you hear about the
fishing boat that crashed
into the marina with all
those dead bodies on board?
Now why does that give me the chills?
I've been afraid of something all night.
If you're afraid, you don't
wanna spend the night alone.
Oh, clever.
Very clever, Tony.
Hey, hey, he)'-
How many other guys would want
to spend the night with you
if they knew who you were?
Did the old guy with
the two kids find out?
Is that why he dumped you?
What does that mean?
They might think it was sickening.
I never thought you were sickening, honey.
I was always very hot for you.
You're not making any sense.
I'm not making any sense?
I'm in this bookstore the other day,
way in the back where they keep the porn?
And there's all these books stacked up.
For $1.
But they're old, right?
I mean, real old.
Five years old.
So I start to leaf through them...
...and guess
what I come across?
Your picture.
Get in the car.
Get in.
You guys are taking a hell of a risk.
wouldn't pay any attention to us,
what we have to say.
We're commies.
You're just a lunatic.
Should I tell 'em how I got here?
wouldn't believe that.
Why are you doing this?
Haven't you heard?
We're human beings.
You know, some people
might wanna know about that.
No, they wouldn't.
We're lucky we heard
that report on the radio
about the fishing boat and the bodies.
Buenos tardes.
Maybe I'll see you in Havana some day.
Hey, maybe you'll see
us in Mexico City some day
or Tijuana.
Don't bet on it.
Take this.
This is a strange thing, isn't it?
A Cuban givin' an American a gun?
A Russian gun.
Do you know how to handle it?
When I was an actor,
I fired off a lot of blanks.
These aren't blanks.
Good luck with your kid.
Maybe you won't have to shoot him.
Hey, watch out where you're
fucking going, you asshole.
I'm home.
Where are you going?
I'm going to take my break now, Sam.
Bobby, what are you...
Hey, hey, are you on something?
Let go of me.
You wanna try some real good shit?
Let go of me.
It's gonna make you feel good.
Get off me!
Who're you running from?
Come on, man.
Let's get her.
Get that bitch!
No, no!
Get her, yOu GUYS!
No, no!
Let go of me!
Let go of me!
God no!
Stay away!
Let go of me!
Get out of the way, girl.
Get up, get up, run!
What this thing looked like.
We were both on the floor.
We couldn't hear anything.
The music was loud.
My wife works here.
Excuse me, Miss, you know Ellen.
Does she still work here?
Yeah, she took off early tonight.
It's lucky she did because
somebody tried to break
- into her locker.
- Yeah, you know who?
Yeah, a pervert, and
he tore up all her clothes.
Where does she live?
Excuse me.
Come on, you really
don't expect me to give out
her home address, do you?
She's in danger, Miss.
How do I know you're not
the guy in the locker room?
You saw him, didn't you?
Now you know it's not me.
It's like nobody you ever
saw before in your life.
The Tropicana Apartments.
Why are you doing this to me?
Why am I doing this to you?
'Cause I wanna come up
whenever I wanna come up.
Or else I might go back
and buy up all those books
and distribute them amongst your friends.
Tony, you are the lowest.
You make me sick.
I make you sick?
You're the one that gave
birth to that thing.
Now how does it make you feel, huh?
Or did you blame it all on your old man?
Son of a bitch.
Oh, that's right.
I forgot.
You don't cry, do you?
Do we have an understanding, sweetheart?
What are you doing?
What are you doing?
What are you doing?
What the fuck are you
doing in my car?
What are you doing?
You threw up in my fucking car.
You fucking freak's
mother, what did you do?
Look what you...
You threw up in my car!
Look what you did!
Just shut up!
You son of a bitch!
You son of a bitch, wait
until I get my hands on you.
Get away from me, you bastard!
You get away from me!
You fucking son of a bitch.
you, baby.
I got your number, honey.
You're dead.
You're dead.
You just shut your face, you bastard.
Wait, just let me in here.
I got you.
Open this door.
What a ridiculous human being you make.
Fuck it, I'm going to get you.
Shut up down there,
I'm calling the cops.
Fuck you. Call the cops,
call the cops. Go ahead, go ahead.
You're going to get me
kicked out of this building.
I know people.
Yes, I know people.
One phone call and you're dead.
Dead meat.
Fuck you.
You shut up.
You don't do that to me.
You're dead. You're dead, bitch.
I'll get her.
She's dead.
She's, look what she did to my car.
She's dead.
That fucking son of a bitch.
I'll get her.
Look what she did to my car.
I love my car!
There's a half-dozen
kids under that pier, Doc.
I've seen them.
Pieces of them.
I kept on pumping
bullets into this fucker
and he wouldn't go down.
Better stand back.
Close off this area.
Move all the spectators off the pier.
None of you are to have any
contact with any other officers.
Report to the hospital under quarantine.
What's the matter?
Damned if I know.
But the corpse has some kind
of a rash all over its body.
Oh, shit, I touched him.
Please help!
Please, somebody help me.
Help me!
Tony, Tony, please, I need you.
Come up here.
You asshole.
Oh my God.
Did you see that guy outside?
Something nearly tore his head off.
Look, there's a door wide
open on the second floor.
Right there.
Suspect sighted on the roof.
- What's going on?
- Just stay inside, all right?
There will be no trouble.
Just stay inside, don't come out.
I don't wanna touch it.
Shoot them, shoot them!
They don't wanna hurt us.
Why did you bring them here?
Why are you doing this to me?
They found you by themselves.
They're here for a reason.
What is it?
Was she right? ls it contagious?
Shit, yes.
You've seen it a million times.
They look sick.
It's got a rash.
She's got a fever.
She's broken out all over.
She's dying, isn't she?
And you're dying, too.
Do they know what you're saying?
Ellen, I know why they came here.
See, they're dying, and they
were dying on that island.
You see, and they could
have given me the child.
And they should have.
But they came all the way
here to give it to you.
They want you to save him.
I don't know why, but only you can do it.
Are we going to do this again?
You've got to take this child.
You've got to.
I'm very sorry.
Please forgive me.
He's your own son.
You can't run away.
You can't run away from your own son.
They're giving the child
to you so you can save him.
It's a boy.
It's another little boy.
I'm sorry you're...
He's so sick.
I didn't know you could
understand when I said things.
I thought you were going to hurt me.
And I hurt you.
But I'll...
I will love your child.
I promise.
Dispatcher: Homicide at Tropicana
Apartments, Palm Drive.
Suspect cornered on rooftop.
I won't let them kill it.
I'll protect him.
It might have natural immunities.
It's the police.
Come, we've got to go, they'll kill it.
What the hell is that thing?
It needs an inoculation.
Look, look how much they love each other.
Okay, face down on the roof.
Hands behind your neck, move.
Come on, let's go.
We need wheels.
You see that car?
Get in it very quietly.
Well, Grandma.
How do you feel?
You look awful good to me.
You never give up, do you?
Well, I thought I had there.
Have you got any money?
Not a nickel.
Here I am in my nightie in a stolen car,
and we're broke, and we're laughing?
But not too loud.
You'll wake the kid up.
