The Rave At Danny Carter's House

Okay, just so you all don't think I only write about missing cackers, the following is an excerpt from another script that I have recently sent out to some contests/competitions/festivals/likely-wastes-of-time.

It's called THE RAVE AT DANNY CARTER'S HOUSE. And it's pretty much about that, it builds up to the rave at Danny's. In the following scene, Danny and his friends (each a nerd/geek type) are discussing the quickly-approaching rave..........


INT. DANNY’S HOUSE/BASEMENT
Danny, Cisco, Walsh and Lem, are all pacing randomly.

CISCO
Party favors?
DANNY
Check.
LEM
Parental figures?
DANNY
Gone.
WALSH
Neon paraphernalia?
CISCO
We got bracelets, necklaces, belts, glow sticks. Plenty of neon.
LEM
What about booze? The kids love booze.
CISCO
It’s BYOB.
LEM
(tries to pronounce it)
Byob?
CISCO
Bring your own booze. Gets us out of buying it.
WALSH
Breakables?
DANNY
I put as much away as I could. According to most party movies, something will break, and break often.
LEM
What if beer is spilled?
DANNY
I put plastic down on the carpets and couches.
LEM
Disco balls?
DANNY
Obviously.
WALSH
Okay, guys, and the most important ingredient in our rave concoction?
CISCO
Girls?
WALSH
Girls.

They look to Danny, and stop pacing. Danny smiles.

DANNY
Oh yes, there will be girls.

Hey, that one I definitely think is something. Even if you don't win any festival or other "likely-wastes-of-time"-ival you should continue the hunt. Of course if the rest of it is as good as this sample.
Which it probably is.

Cool, man, thanks guys. I'll post some more later. It's a fun script. I've sent this one (and another called THE SCENIC ROUTE) out to a bunch of fests/contests so we'll see how it goes!

Hey, is this going to be Animal House meets Texas Chainsaw Massacre?

I’m still a bit twitchy form Tourniquet.

Haha, give us more. There’s something seriously “wrong” with you Garden state people.

Oh, and I completely dig the title.

No, no, there's no gore or dismemberment in this one. Just a simple, fun high school comedy.
