Dark Sister (2018) Script

I love you.

Is that for me?

Very funny.

Now, take those things off and kiss me.

She tells me she loves me, and she wants me to kiss her.

She closes her eyes, and I hand her this present.

And it's that awful doll again.

And then everything turns to red.

I grab..

Show it to me.

Where are you?

Um, I don't know.

A park?

Try to be more specific.

Archetypal imagery is the language of dreams.

It is how they communicate with us.

So this is the sun.

I think so.

So it was sunny.

It wasn't raining.

What does it matter if it's raining?

Everything matters in analysis.

It didn't just feel like I was watching her die.

It felt like I..

I killed her.

I understand, but I need you to hang in there a bit longer.

You are very near a break-through.

I'm really grateful for all you've done.

It's just, I.. I don't know how much more of this I can take.

I hope that you don't think of me just as your therapist.

And however you may feel, you are making progress.

Trust me.

Maybe we can get a drink later, if you're not too busy.

The more you talk the longer this takes.

This place is a fucking dump.

Honey, do you know who this is?

This is Trent Melville, Australia's own David Bailey.

Okay, take five.

Why don't you come back to the magazine?

You'll have the proper budgets, proper talent.. no offense to her over there.

You fired me, remember?

I made a mistake.

What are you really doing here, Brian?

Congratulations on the engagement, man.

I really wish the best for both of you.

So what?

She gonna come back to the magazine?

Kelly be around more?

Could have another crack at her?

That was years ago.

Things change.

The offer stands.

If you want the job, it's yours.

Say hi to Kelly for me.



We're gonna have to probably do three coats for this.


Ring around the rosie, pocketful of posies.

You've got such pretty hair.

Full of posies.

We all fall down.



I've got a surprise for you!


What do you think?

It's beautiful.

Oh, thank you.

Mum would have an absolute fit if she knew I've dragged this halfway across town.

But that's the only way I knew you'd see it!

Oh, before I forget, this one is for you.

Kell, I have one of these.

You know my evil plan is to wear you down.

Oh, come on, Cass.

Look, if.. If you're feeling anxious, why don't you just pop on over to the wedding rehearsal tomorrow?

A few girls from school are gonna be there.

They're all dying to see you.

It's not the whole Trent thing, is it?


We dated in high school.

What is it?

I fucked up, Cass.

I met up with an old friend, and we got drunk.




Each time I come here, you say less and less.

And there's more of these awful paintings.

Yeah, I say less and less, and there's a good reason for it.

You come here, and you talk, and... And then you ask me how I am.

And all you want to say is "Fine."

But I am not fine!

This is who I am now.

And.. And if you.. If you can't handle it, then maybe you shouldn't be coming around anymore.

They're all so aggressive.

Do you have anything a little less extreme.

Listen, either you want one or you don't.

Do you take American Express?


I know it's late.

I have trouble sleeping.

You came to my studio.

You saw my work, found pictures of people who look like my paintings.

What are you playing at?

Playing this game is sick.

Sandra Price.

I don't know what you want.

Esperance, WA, stabbing.

Patrick Franklin, Salisbury, Adelaide, strangulation.

Elizabeth Rollins, immolation.

I was at a restaurant when I saw your painting, by chance.

You're saying my hallucinations are real.

That sort of talk puts you in a padded cell.

All I know is you paint pictures of dead people you don't know.

Who live in places you've never been.

Part of you notices more than what you see.

Despite what your shrink tells you, these victims were killed by people with no history of violence, no prior convictions.

Most of them didn't even have parking fines.

Who killed her?

Jim Rose, her boyfriend.

The dates and locations show a pattern.

These homicides resemble serial killings.

If you follow the pattern, you'll see that whoever is doing this, he's coming back.

I now pronounce you man and wife.

You may kiss the bride.



Kell left some shoes here.


Co.. Come in.

Your style has certainly developed.

They're amazing.

They're dreams.

Each one of these is a dream?

You should see someone about that.

I am.

You should fire them.

Trent, I hope you have a great wedding.


That floor's not gonna get any cleaner.

I just want it to look its best for that young couple.

Nice kids.

Never too late for confession, I suppose.

I'll take this one.

You carry on.

In your own time.

How long has it been since your last confession?

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?

With silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row.


I don't know what happened!

We were just talking!


They sacrificed a demon to an old god.

Oh, God... My father's never dreaded.

They sacrificed a demon to an old god.

Oh, God, save me.


Father, don't.


Who is she, Lisa?

That man christened my nephew and married my brother.

What the hell is going on, Cassie?

Do I look like I know what's going on here?

That young priest, when he saw you, he said "Her."

You wanna tell me what that means?

What are you saying?

You came to me, remember?

Oh, go to hell!

What now?

Am I under arrest?



Kell, open up.

It's Cassie.

This is familiar.

Can I come in?



She's not here.

Did you want a drink?

Where is she?

I don't know.

Maybe I can help.

You'll just think I'm crazy.

Go on, shoot.

Those dreams, the paintings you saw, someone has been killing people, and I see while it happens.

I know what it sounds like.

Fucking nuts.

That's what it sounds like.

What happened to you?

You used to be relatively normal.

Now you sit around all day in your apartment, painting and smoking.

That's fine, but now what you're telling me is that what you're painting is real.

It's pathetic.

I'm sorry.

I don't know why I came here.

One, two, three, four, five.

Once I caught a fish alive.

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten, then I let her go again.


Yeah, I sent the approved ones yesterday.



They want Barbarella.


Yeah, they're at my studio.

We need your help.

We seem to have lost our inhibitions.

What's going on?

What's a wedding without a buck's night?

I can't believe you bought that bullshit on the phone.

Wedding's off, Brian.

Ladies, ladies.

I didn't know.

I'm sorry.

Well, how would you know?

It's none of your business.

You're right.

I'll get the boys to leave.

No, you can all stay, have a good night.

Man, look, why don't you stay?

We're all here.

We're all mates.

Come on.

What do you say?

Did you get this idea before you fucked her?

How long have you known?

When Kelly was a child and her parents split up, her dad bought her something.

You tell me what it was.

Tell me what it was, and I'll never speak to her again.

I can see you've been doing some redecorating.

I've had that breakthrough you were talking about.

It's not what you were expecting.

That's excellent news.

Yeah, they're real.

I think we've covered this, Cassie.

No, today I met someone, and then I saw him in my vision.

Each one of these is a real person.

We can catch whoever's doing this.



Cassie, what do all the victims have in common?


Think back.

I don't know.

Look, it all seems so random.

Agreed, but there is a link.

Very simple.

They were all in love.

I don't think it needs to be romantic.

It's any kind of love.

You're right.

What is it?

What do you see?



What is it?

What can you see?

Cassie, tell me where she is.


Billy, no!

No, no, no!

I didn't know you were watching us all this time.

Your friends are fun to play with.

The game is easy.

All you have to do is catch me.

And if you don't, you'll lose.

And then your friend is out.

See you soon.

Now do you believe me?

I always did.

I can't have you running around..

You never told me your parents split up.

Didn't I?

I'm leaving.

I'm sorry.

Please don't leave me.

It'll never happen again.

I made a mistake.


I did.

I don't love you, Kell.

It's my fault for letting it go this long.

You don't mean that.

You're just hurt.

You don't mean that.


Cry baby bunting, daddy's gone a-hunting.


Hold me.

I can't.




You let him go!


You came too late.

You'll have to do better next time.

Wait, wait, wait!

Lisa, no!

Oh God!

Stay away from me!

Wait, wait!

Please, help us.


Fuck me.

Trent and I were talking over there.

And then I blacked out.

When I came to, he was..

And Cassie..

Did he hit you?

He wouldn't do that.

I think I hurt him.

You're bleeding.

It's not mine.

No, you shouldn't have to stay here.

I'll let you get your things.

Come to my apartment.

You can stay as long as you want.

The other night was a mistake.

I'm sorry.

I haven't got anything to eat, but plenty to drink.

So if you can find yourself a clean glass, go on, have a drink.

Have a drink with me.

At least have a drink with me.

I mean, to.. To what do I owe this little visit?

Do I have a sister?

You know, you still haven't even said hello, by the way.

Why don't we start with that?


Now, answer the question.

It doesn't matter.

How about a hug?

Come on, Cassie.

Why don't you just have a drink with me.

Just tell me everything now.

I wanna know about my sister, my real mother..


Would someone please tell me what's going on?

Me and your girlfriend, we're having a private chat.

Who the fuck's this guy?

He's my father.

You told me he was dead.

Well, that's lovely, isn't it?

You might as well have been, you goddamn drunk.

Why don't you do the right thing for once and just tell me the fucking truth?

Who told you about her?

No one.

I've met her.

That's fucking ridiculous.


Because I watched her burn up!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but she's very much alive.

She's been killing people for years and sending me the highlights.

So don't you dare tell me it's impossible.

Kelly and Brian sitting in a tree.



Identities psychic abilities are certainly increasing.

When I returned today, he had used the gardener to break Hector's arm.

However, a mere manipulation of those in love was never the intended goal.

It's clear now that only Apollo is capable of psychic manipulation, his twin Hector being a mere witness to the events.

We must embrace the possibility that Cassandra and Diana also exhibit these unintended anomalies.

It's too early to tell.

Why the embryos continue to split during the procedure is troubling, but I can no longer hold out hope that it's a chance occurrence.

Perhaps the two sets are comprised of a psychically active A twin and a passive B twin.

If I could combine the active qualities in both the A twins, then the result may be a third singular B..

Your mother made some significant breakthroughs in her experiment to discover the secrets of love.

But you said I was the experiment.

You were a failed experiment, a mistake.

You see, she wanted to create a being who could control love, like a god.

But instead she got you and Diana, not one complete entity but two parasitic twins linked via a psychic bridge.

One half capable of inhabiting someone through love, the other doomed to watch.

So how do we stop her?

I have no idea.

Your brother appears to have run away.

I need you to help me stop him before he gets too far.

And we don't want that now, do we?

I want you to think about how much..

I know how he hurts you.

How's your arm?

You are... You know I don't love you.

You're just like..

It worked.

Don't you hate him?

What the hell is that?

It amplifies emotions.

So when the psychic bridge is open, Cassie can attempt to send a little something back down the line.

So this could work?


There are risks.

This injection is almost to the limit the human body can handle.

There's a high probability your heart will give out.

Outside of that, what if it doesn't work?

We send something bigger down the pipe.

This dosage is over the human limit.

If it doesn't make your heart explode, it'll almost certainly damage your limbic system.

Limbic system?

Cassie would lose all her emotion.

We wait until she makes contact.

While the bridge is open, we inject you.

You'll be able to send a sort of emotional shockwave.

You to conjure all the hate you have for what Diana has done.


Hate is the easiest emotion to conjure.


Wanna play hide and seek?


Think about all those deaths you couldn't stop.

This maniac has killed innocent people and made you watch.

Feel the rage pouring through your veins like black oil.

Do it.

Keep going!

Kill her!

Oh, Jesus.

Cassie, Cassie?

Come on, Cassie!

When you've been a naughty girl, this machine tells me.

Will you behave?


You've been such a naughty girl.

I don't know if I can believe you.

I'll behave.

Welcome home, Diana.

Do you know the trouble that you caused me when you ran away?

You set me back years.

The things I had to do to find you.

Before you ran away, I had a surprise for you.

Do you want to know what it was?

A real, living Lisa.

You're going to be a mummy.

Like you?

Sort of.

But your baby is going to be able to change the world with a blink of an eye.

But if you're bad..


I'll be good.

I'll be good.

I'll be good.

Good girl.

Here, go through here.

Apollo, come.

What's he doing here?

Everything's going to be all right.

You're fine.

You have to go get help.

She's gonna take our baby from us.



He hasn't done that in a long time.

You always were a bad influence.

Let her go.


You are right, mother.

Baby and I are gonna change the world.

But it'll be nothing like your world.

It'll be fun.

Look at you.

All grown up.

But you know, even as an adult, you can't always get what you want.

I always get what I want.

My girls, do you know, this is the first time I've had a chance to talk to you both at the same time?

Cassie, I need you to forgive Diana.

She doesn't really know what she's doing.

I suppose it's my fault, really.

You must so many questions.

But I don't think that..

I don't think that your sister's going to give me a chance to answer any of them!

Diana, listen to me.

Your sister is jealous of you.

She wants only to hurt you.

She wants to hurt your baby.

Do you understand?

You've been bad, mother.

I can feel you now, sis.

I'm coming for you.

She wasn't trying to help me.

She was trying to find Diana.


Our mother.

You're not my father.

You're like me.

People found out about her.

There was a fire.

I got you out.

I thought..

She's mated my brother with Diana.

My loyalty to you and your cause could not be greater.

You do love me, don't you, Clyde?

Did you feel that?

The child is coming.

She's getting closer.

I can feel her.

She was right.

My God.

I've heard that tape a thousand times.

I never believed it would work.

I feel like that.

It was glorious.

Imagine pure love, free from corruption, confusion, doubt could be generated by a single sentient being.

You felt it too, right?

Don't you understand?

We can't stop her now.

We need to help her.

This child must be protected at all costs.

Of course.

I'll do it.

Something weird just happened.

Where's Cassie?

She's fine.

I'm gonna get Cassie.

We're gonna leave.

You can leave, Trent.

There's nothing keeping you here.

But Cassie won't be joining you.

You tried to kill her.

Yes, and I'm sorry about that.

If you think I'm gonna leave her here with you, you're fucking dreaming, mate.

Well, then I'm sorry about this too.

It'll be quick.

She's coming for you.

Once you take that I'm never gonna see you again.

I only just found you.

My God, look at me.

I started my sketchbook when you were 11.

That was the most beautiful thing that I'd ever seen.

That girl's got nothing on you.

One, two, three, four, five, once I caught a fish alive.

I don't wanna play with you anymore.

Mother told me what you were gonna do to me and baby.

Once you're gone, me and..

Baby will be happy.

Are you scared?

Are you scared, sis?

I love you.
