The Addicted (2013) Movie Script

I've changed my mind,
I wanna go home.
Oh, come on, Charly,
we're here now.
Let's at least have
a look around.
Yeah, come on,
we'll look after ya.
I've got you, Charly.
You'll be fine with me.
I'm not gonna let anything bad
happen to you, okay? Okay?
Okay. Just don't let go,
all right?
- I really don't like it here.
- Sure.
I saw a generator outside.
This is better, isn't it?
All right.
You ready?
- Have you got the...
- Yeah.
We shouldn't be doing this.
This feels really wrong.
Well, I want to see something.
I mean, everyone talks about
the weird things they've seen.
I want to see it.
Stop worrying, Charly.
Nothing bad's gonna happen, okay?
And even if there is a ghost,
it can't hurt you.
What the hell was that?
Oh, God. Please, can you take me home?
Please, can you take me home?
Follow me!
It won't fucking open!
Okay, Nicola, the thing is...
Oh, it's Nicole. Nicole.
Sorry, Nicole.
It's not that you're not good on camera,
it's just...
Well, there's nothing
really here, is there?
I need better content.
I need proper stories.
Don't you feed them
to your reporters, though?
Well, sometimes
we have to, yeah.
But I want somebody who can
bring me the story, you know.
The big story. That means people
will watch us instead of EastEnders.
I need passion. I need drive.
I need more than this.
But, listen, I can do this.
You know,
I can deliver the goods.
I'm... You know,
I'm good at this.
- Yeah, look...
- I'm... I'm really good.
Nicole... Okay.
Go away. Find me a story that
people actually want to hear,
get it shot and then come back.
Okay? It's that simple.
Mmm. Not exactly.
It's going to be
tougher than I hoped.
Yeah... Well, look,
I'll tell you more about it when I get home.
I'm just getting
in the car, okay?
All right. Bye, babe.
I know you've probably heard some
ridiculous rumors about this place,
but I can assure you,
it's all bollocks.
People have a funny way of handing
in their notice.
Hey, if you don't like it,
just let us know.
Don't just disappear.
Of course,
I'm sure it'll be fine.
I've been doing
this kind of work for years.
Well, it's pretty
self-explanatory, really.
Patrol around the grounds,
walk through the building
a couple of times at night
and you can leave
at 8:00 a.m.
Now, the contractors are here
some nights but not others,
but lock up behind yourself.
Oh, and it still hasn't
been cleaned up in there
so there's a pretty odd vibe
to the place,
but that's all it is.
Once we get
the place stripped out,
it'll stop all of
those bizarre rumors.
Okay. No problem.
Leave it to me.
I'll leave you to it.
Nobody ever leaves.
Sit, sit, sit.
You're doing well, David,
you really are.
But, you're not ready yet.
If you come off it now,
you'll slip into depression
and it'll just be harder
in the long run.
You need more time to adjust.
Okay, well...
You're the expert, Chris.
I trust you.
You're a fuck up, David.
You'll never be free of this.
You're here until I let you go
and that's
just not going to happen.
I'm gonna take your wife.
I'm gonna take your money.
I'm gonna take everything.
You will never leave.
Why don't you take that side?
Come on, David,
you're all right.
Just get you up.
Let's get him...
Let's get him cleaned up.
Slow down.
Adam, go to your room.
Hey, babe.
I've got something for you.
Excuse me.
What's this?
I think you should check it out.
The old rehab clinic
on Grove Road.
There's more stories about
people going missing there.
Might be worth looking at
for a story.
It was just kids
dicking around, surely.
That website doesn't think so.
My dad used to run that place.
I went there a few times
when I was a kid.
Your dad worked there?
He was a clinical director.
Well, that just makes it
even better.
It'll be personal then.
I can't exactly interview
people who've gone missing, can I?
No. But we can
spend the night there.
See if we can film something.
You must be fucking joking.
The place is
a complete shithole.
Last time I saw it,
it was falling down.
Just think about it, right?
You can make a night of it.
Get Liz and Mike to come, too.
It might even be a laugh.
I'll think about it.
Well, don't think too long,
someone else will wanna do it.
I'm so sorry that we're late.
I didn't know what to wear.
You wouldn't think it'd be that hard,
would you, really?
Hoody, pair of jeans.
Not audition
the entire fuckin' wardrobe.
Why don't you
just give it a rest, Mike?
That place looks fuckin' scary.
We're really gonna spend
the whole night in there?
Are you sure that's safe?
Yeah, the builders have already
made a start. It's safe, trust me.
Hold that for me, will you?
Adam? Adam?
Where are you going?
I can't see you.
Where you going, mate?
Don't fuck about.
I don't like
the dark, Mike, stay here.
You lot
really need to lighten up.
Uh, can you not disappear like that,
you scared me.
I'm sorry about that.
So what now?
- Yeah, come on, what's the plan?
- Yeah.
Well, I need to set up my gear,
camera and stuff.
And I guess find somewhere
good to do that.
Let's go for
a little explore then.
If any creepy shit happens,
I wanna be right near the door.
That gets my vote.
- Keep it simple, stay by the door.
- Yeah.
You lot are so dull sometimes.
I wanna have a look around.
Can we just hang here for a bit,
babe, you know, get used to it?
Whatever you say.
So what's the story then
with this place?
Well, in the '70s and '80s
it was a drug rehab clinic.
Anyone who had a strong addiction to heroin,
coke, amphetamines,
they used to come here
to get clean.
So, why did
the place close down?
Oh, a patient hung himself.
It doesn't look much
like a clinic now.
I think it's been
closed for about 20 years.
No one...
...ever leaves.
- Did you hear that?
- I heard it.
Me too.
It came from over there.
Jesus Christ.
I think we should move.
What about all our stuff?
- It'll still be here.
- Come on.
Come on, it'll be all right.
I sure don't wanna go up here.
We should go and check the door.
- Come on.
- Yeah.
Well, whatever it is,
the door's fine.
Look, I want to put one of the
cameras at the top of the stairs.
The other one
at the other end of this room
and we keep
the main one with us, yeah?
Be right back.
Be quick, okay?
I won't be long.
Did you get
the other camera set?
No, not yet.
Do you want to do it?
Are you scared?
- I'll do it.
- No, I'll do it.
I'll do it.
I've been waiting
for you, Nicole.
Fuck, Adam!
- What? - Jesus Christ!
You scared the crap out of me!
Why you sneaking up on me?
I'm just checking
you're all right.
Yeah, I'm fine. Jesus!
So, what now?
Are we just sitting there,
waiting for something to happen?
Unless you want to
go exploring again?
Well, it seems a bit pointless coming all
this way and not to have a look around.
There's a whole other floor above where
we were before, we haven't even seen it.
We should
definitely check it out.
Yeah. Okay.
I'm up for that.
All right.
Remind me why I'm here again?
Because you're
a fantastic friend
and you're doing me
a huge favor.
- I must be mad.
- Mmm.
Go on, Mike, open it.
Why me?
You're nearest.
It burns!
It really fucking burns!
My veins are on fire!
Come on.
Open the door!
I can't open it!
We need
another door. There.
It's not opening.
What's going on?
Why are all the doors stuck?
Oh, this can't be happening.
There was a loading bay
further along.
We've got to find it.
We've got to get out of here now!
The door, it's locked.
We're fucked.
Fuck this.
Are we trapped in here?
No, no, there's gotta
be another way out.
Let's get the fuck out of here.
Look, this is ridiculous.
We came here to film this thing,
not run away from it.
Are you fucking mad?
It dragged me off, Nic.
If it hadn't been for Adam,
Christ knows what would have happened.
You didn't see it.
You didn't see it.
He's right, Nic.
This place is fucked up.
We've gotta get out of here
while we're still in one piece.
Well, what about the top floor?
There was a fire escape,
I saw it from the outside.
Yeah, I saw that too.
Okay. I'll go and find it.
On your own? Are you mad?
Are you sure?
I mean, I can come with you.
No, I'll be quicker on my own.
I'm scared.
I mean, what if Adam
doesn't come back?
Of course he'll come back.
You don't know that.
Don't lose the plot, Liz.
You know, it'll all be fine.
We'll find a way to get out.
Where's Adam's cigarettes?
Did he take his cigarettes?
- Have you seen them?
- You don't smoke.
I just feel like a fag.
- Adam?
- Mike!
- Adam?
- Mike!
It's fucking coming!
What the fuck!
Fuck you.
Keep quiet.
This might sting.
Hold very still.
Can you feel it
coursing through your veins?
So nasty.
We have got company.
But I'll be back.
Where the fuck have you been?
It's taken Mike.
Mike? Who's "it"?
The ghost, whatever it is.
It's taken him.
Did you see or hear anything?
I mean, did you see Mike?
I didn't see anything.
What about the fire escape?
Is there one out there?
Yeah, it's blocked.
Someone really
doesn't want us to get out.
I've had enough of sitting around.
We need to move.
- We need to find Mike.
- Yeah.
Well, he was dragged
like before. That way.
I just wanna go home.
Help me.
Help me.
Help me.
Where is he?
He's over there!
Right, we'll have
to pick him up.
Here we go.
We can put him on this.
That'll do. There's nothing
we can really do for him.
He'll have to sweat it out.
He could die.
He's just gonna
have to sleep it off.
Well, let's hope so, eh?
This isn't going to work.
I've tried.
I've really tried.
But you're not
making any effort.
You're still addicted to
that... that nasty shit!
I can't do it anymore.
I'm doing everything I can.
And who says
I'm not making an effort?
The director of this place.
He says you're worse off
than when you first came in.
A complete loser.
I've had enough.
I want a divorce.
Don't say that.
What about the kids?
Like you give a toss.
They're better off without you.
Just stay away from us.
Anyone's phone working yet?
No, mine's still dead.
Mine too.
We should never have come here.
None of this makes any sense.
I'm going to
check out upstairs again.
Who's gonna come?
What about Mike?
I'll come with you.
I don't wanna stay here
on my own with him.
Then come with us.
He'll be okay.
What if he isn't?
Mike! Mike!
He's gone.
Gone where?
It's empty.
There's no way out.
Babe, it's gonna be okay, I promise.
We're gonna get out of here,
all right? I promise.
Well, there must be something
we can try.
Um, we could try
the fire escapes again.
They seem pretty blocked though.
I don't wanna go anywhere.
I'll go. You wait here.
- You don't have to.
- I know.
You two hold tight.
I promise I'll be back.
Thank you, Adam.
- Adam! Fuck, no!
- This cannot be happening!
No one ever leaves.
Welcome back.
- No, no.
- It's time for your second treatment.
No. No.
Please, please.
Please, don't...
I can take the pain away.
I could stop it right now.
Help me. Please.
Told ya.
I never liked you anyway.
What was that?
I don't know.
I don't know.
He's not gonna
let us out, is he?
We're gonna find Adam and Mike.
And we're getting out of here.
We're going up. We're gonna go up to the
next floor and we're going to find them.
- You okay?
- Yeah, I'm okay.
Just stay with me.
Don't go off without me.
No way, miss.
Come on, come on.
He's coming for us.
He's gonna get us.
Liz... Liz, just shut up!
Keep it quiet.
Oh, fuck!
Oh, my God, Nic.
Are you okay?
Oh, my Christ, that hurts.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God,
what are we gonna do?
Has he gone?
Maybe. I don't know.
I can't believe
this is happening.
I mean, it's not normal, is it?
This place ain't fucking right.
No, it's not.
I don't even believe
in any of this shit.
Me neither, Nic.
Can you see anything out of those windows,
do you think?
I mean, they're not boarded up
like downstairs.
Liz? Where are you?
What happened to you?
Where are we going?
Top floor.
Maybe the roof's the best bet.
We just...
We've gotta be careful.
We're just not alone in here.
It'll be all right.
Oh, shit. Mike.
It's okay.
Okay, come on. Come on.
Let's just keep going.
Come on.
The hunter becomes the hunted.
What the fuck is going on?
What are you doing?
What are you doing?
I'm just helping out my dad.
Your dad killed him.
What are you talking about?
My dad lived here in the clinic.
Your dad killed him.
Did you really think
I liked you?
You and your fucked up,
self-serving excuse of a career.
Fuck you.
Play nice, Nicole.
Or you'll be losing another friend.
Please, Adam.
Let her go, Adam.
Please, just let her go.
What do you think you're doing?
I've had enough
of this sick fucker.
What are you gonna do, Liz?
You're scared of your own shadow.
I fucking killed Mike,
he begged me to let him go.
Jesus Christ, Liz, you got him.
I always had a funny feeling
about him.
Don't. Leave him.
Leave him!
Jesus Christ!
- Fuck!
- No, Adam!
Adam, don't do it.
Shut the fuck up!
I will cut your fucking throat.
Leave her alone!
Adam, stop it! No!
Stop it!
Come on then, you motherfucker.
I've been waiting for you.
Breathe, Adam. Take the pain.
Take the pain.
What did you do, Nicole?
I've sussed this out.
Your dad needs you
or he can't exist.
Without you, he's nothing.
He's got you, though.
Not for fucking long,
you sick cunt.
You're not gonna do anything.
I'm gonna cut you to fucking shreds.
Fucking bitch!
I can find you, Nicole.
You sick fuck!
Oh, my God, Dad.
I'm in trouble, I need you.
I'm in the clinic,
I'm in your old clinic.
I'm trapped
and I'm being chased.
They're trying to kill me.
Adam is.
Adam and his dad.
Dad, it doesn't matter.
I just... I need you, please.
No one ever leaves.
Oh, fuck!
Fuck it!
Fuck it!
If anyone finds this,
it means something bad
has happened to me.
Liz and Mike are already dead.
It's this building.
You've gotta stay away from it.
Fucking demolish it.
Fucking bitch.
What's this all about, Dad?
What is this place?
I used to work here
a long time ago.
I don't know
what's going on, so...
We should be careful, yeah?
- Come, quick!
- It's coming from upstairs.
We need to get to her.
Come on, Dad!
Help me!
Help me!
My God, it's you.
Twenty-five years of pain.
Twenty-five years!
What's going on, Dad? Nicole?
I don't understand.
It's time to pay, Chris.
You caused this.
No, no! Please, no, no!
You did this to my dad and now
I'm gonna do it to your daughter.
It's time to pay.
What's he talking about, Dad?
Dad, you did this to him?
Why? Why would you do that?
- I was selfish. I was...
- What?
What were you? Twisted? Evil?
Time to die.
I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
I'm sorry.
I did this.
I did this to him and I...
I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Please, please, let my girls go.
Please, I beg you. Please.
Just let her go.
You or her. Simple choice.
I have no excuse.
I'm sorry.
