EXT. HOUSE – NIGHT
Knock knock knock. House door opens in from the outside. BOY and GIRL Trick or Treat! NICE LADY Well aren't you too just adorable!(Gives them candy)You all must be the new addition to our neighborhood. MOTHER Yes, we just moved here from the BIG CITY.(Mother says to kids)But we wanted to get away from all that chaos didn't we?(Kids shake heads with a big yes and Mother turns back up at the Nice Lady)We just wanted some peace and quite, I am a writer... or I was a writer I should say now I am kinda-sorta unemployed. (laughs) NICE LADY Oh nooo, what happened? MOTHER Well, I worked at THE MAGAZINE in the Big City, but they recently came under new ownership and said they wanted to “go in a new direction” and that “my particular set of services were no longer needed”. So now I am a writer with no employer. So we put it to a vote and decided to come here to RURAL TOWN. I always wanted to write a book anyway so perhaps it's best. NICE LADY Well that's just a shame. It is because you are a woman and good at your job is what it is. Men are intimidated by that I think. MOTHER You are probably right! Say... who lives in that one old house up the road on the hill? NICE LADY Some OLD LADY lives there. Poor thing, none of the kids ever go to her house on Halloween because they are afraid of her cause they think she is a witch. MOTHER That's awful. Well what do you say gang, shall we go pay her a visit? (Kids nod yes.)
EXT. HOUSE â€“ NIGHT
MOTHER Goodnight it was nice meeting you, thank her for the candy guys. BOY and GIRL Thank you! Scene fades as the Nice Lady is saying they are welcome. 2
EXT. OLD CREEPY HOUSE NIGHT
Knock knock knock. A very Old Lady opens the door. BOY and GIRL Trick or treat. OLD LADY Oh goodness! Well hello there. Please come in, come in, I make cookies every year but no kids ever come to eat them. Mother sees no harm in this sweet old lady, they enter. OLD LADY Have a seat on the couch and I will fetch the cookies. There is a large odd shaped grandfather clock that dominates the room. The ticking is rather loud. Old Lady returns with a tray of brightly colored sugar cookies. MOTHER What do you say? BOY and GIRL Thank you. OLD LADY Oh that isn't necessary if you all hadn't come along they would have just went to waste. MOTHER Well thank you anyway, they really are quite delicious, I can't stop eating them. OLD LADY They were my sisters recipe actually, I stole it from her just before she died.
