Let Me In (2010) Script

131 to dispatch, come in.

Hey hey hey hey!

131, this is dispatch. Go ahead.

This is 131. We have a male, mid-50s, with burns over 9% to 9.5% of his body.

Prior to our arrival on scene, patient apparently doused his head, neck and face with some sort of highly-concentrated acid.

The patient's airway is severely compromised due to fume inhalation.

Vital signs unstable.

Please advise- patient is a criminal suspect.

We're coming in with a police escort right now.


Hi.

Can I talk to him?

He can't actually talk.

All right.

Jesus.

Can I just have a few minutes with him?


We want to know who you are.

We'll find out, you know, sooner or later.

So just save us some legwork by communicating with us now.

Are you a Satanist?

Are you involved in some kind of cult?

'Cause if there's others involved, we'll get them.

We'll find them, believe me.

What's the matter?

Is that it? That's it, right?

Is there somebody you want to tell me about?

I'm sorry, the nurse at reception downstairs is on the phone.

She wants to talk to you, says it's urgent.

Okay.

I'll be right back, okay?

Thank you very much...

Yeah.

...Reverend Clergy all, Senator Hawkins...

His daughter? When was this?

Is she still here?

Well, did she leave any information, a phone number?

What do you mean a little girl? How little?

Dispatch, this is Baker 17.

I’m gonna need a medical backup.

Jesus, Mary, Joseph.

Somebody help!


There is sin and evil in the world, and we're enjoined by Scripture and the Lord Jesus to oppose it with all our might.

Our nation, too, has a legacy of evil with which it must deal.

The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past.

Alexis de Tocqueville put it eloquently after he had gone on a search for the secret of America's greatness and genius-

"Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the greatness and the genius of America."

America is good.

And if America ever ceases to be good-

So how was school today?

You didn't go and spoil your dinner on me now, did you, Owen?

No.

Owen, sweetie- No, I didn't.

Eat, please, honey.

Hello.

What?

Look, I’m not gonna discuss this now, okay?

We're eating dinner.

We had an agreement, John.

I think maybe you'd better call my lawyer, okay?

Don't talk to me like that!

I will not be spoken to in that way.

...Judgment to fall.

And if we as a people turn back to God...

These are the young people.

The young people are beginning to turn back to God Who's waiting on them.

If the Lord calls you, then the Word comes.

And the Word came from the Lord...

Hey little girl.

Are you a little girl?

Huh?

Are you scared?

I didn't do anything.

Now!

Or I’ll make it 20.


Hey little girl.

Ow! Don't.

Are you a little girl?

Ow.

That's why he won't go swimming.

He doesn't want everyone to see what a little fucking girl he is.

Right there.

Just so you know, I can't be your friend.

Why not?

That's just the way it is.

Well, who said I wanted to be your friend?

Idiot.

Huh?

Huh?

Answer me!

Maybe I’m getting sloppy.

Maybe I want to get caught.

Maybe I’m just tired of this.


Excuse me, everyone.

Let me through here, please.

As some of you may have heard, there was an incident last night and one of your recent graduates here was killed.

I want to assure you that we're doing everything possible to find those responsible for this tragedy.

But in the meantime we need you all to be on the lookout for any suspicious activity, because your safety is our number-one concern.


It's you again, huh?

You know, I really want to be left alone.

Me too. So leave.

You leave.

I've lived here longer than you.

What is that?

What, this?

It’s a Rubik's Cube.

You don't know Rubik's Cube?

Is it a puzzle?

Yeah.

Want to try it?

You can give it back tomorrow.

How do you do it?

You gotta get each side one color.

Like that.

You smell kind of funny.

Aren't you cold?

I don't really get cold.

I guess I’ll see you tomorrow.

I still don't get how you did this.

What were you writing back there?

What do you mean?

In Cook's class.

Let's see it.

No.

No?

Where is it?

Where is it?

Ow. Show me.

Jesus Christ, dude. What?

You explain that to his mom.

It’s okay.

She's not going to tell her mom on us, is she?

She fell down on the playground, that's all.

Right?

Right?

Say it, little girl.

Say it!

Come on, man, let's go.

I fell down on the playground.

You have to be more careful, okay, honey?

I hate to see my baby get hurt.

Bless us O Lord for these Thy gifts which we are about to receive.

Please guide and direct us for all our days and protect us from evil.

Okay look, I made one for you and one for me.

Are you reading this?

Yeah, it's for school. It’s boring.

Come on, look at this. It’s really cool.

We can talk to each other through the wall.

Can you hear me through the wall?

Only sometimes.

Did you hear anything the other night?

Why was your dad so mad?

Where's your mom? Are your parents divorced?

My mom's dead.

My mom and dad are getting a divorce.

What happened there?

Just some kids from school.

Where do you go to school anyway? I’ve never seen you-

Owen, listen.

What?

You have to hit back.

You have to hit back hard.

I can't.

There's three of them. Then you hit back even harder.

Hit them harder than you dare and then they'll stop.

What if they hit me back?

You have a knife.

Yeah, and what if that doesn't stop 'em?

Then I’ll help you.

But you're a girl.

I’m a lot stronger than you think I am.

I have to get in there.

Move.

I like it.


I’m sorry.

Owen, do you like me?

Yeah.

A lot.

Would you still like me even if I wasn't a girl?

What do you mean?

I don't know. I guess.

Why?

No reason.

So where are you guys from?

How come you moved here?

We... we move around a lot.

Yeah, but why would you move here?

Nobody moves here.

I hate it here.

Someday I’m gonna get out and I’ll never come back.

The people here... they're- they're just stupid.

Owen!

God.

Hang on.

What?

You promised me you wouldn't leave the courtyard.

Mom, I’ve been here the whole time.

Well, come up. It’s time for dinner.

Are you going out?

Is there a choice?


Please don't see that boy again.

Yeah, sure. Get in.

I can't even deal with it anymore.

What are you doing? I’m trying to move the seat.

It’s in the front.

Hey, thanks for picking me up, man.

Yeah man, anytime.

An unidentified man has been arrested in connection with the recent ritual murder of a local high school honor student.

The suspect is hospitalized in critical condition with severe self-inflicted acid burns over his face and torso making it impossible so far for authorities to determine his identity.

Excuse me, I’m looking for my father.

Is he a patient here?

Yeah, they- they brought him in.

The police did.

Oh, I see.

Do you know where he is?

Well, he's on the 10th floor, sweetie, but it's restricted.

Look, why don't we give them a call and tell them-?

No no, that's okay.

Oh my God, the poor girl.

Sweetie, sweetie!


May I come in?


His daughter? When was this?

Is she still here?

Well, did she leave any information, a phone number?

What do you mean a little girl? How little?

Jesus, Mary, Joseph.

Somebody help!


Owen.

Owen.

Hmm?

Can I come in?

No no no, wait wait.

Don't look at me.

But you have to say it- that I can come in.

You can come in.

Close your eyes.

They're already closed.


How did you get up here?

I flew.

Yeah, right.

Hey, you're not wearing anything.

And you're freezing.

Is that gross?

No.

Abby...

Yeah?

Will you go steady with me?

What do you mean?

Will you be my girlfriend?

Owen, I’m not a girl.

You're not a girl?

No.

What are you?

I’m nothing.

Oh.

You know, it's okay if you don't want to be my girlfriend.

You don't have to make stuff up.

Look, can we just keep things the way they are?

Yeah, sure.

Well, do you have to do anything special when you go steady?

No.

So everything's the same?

Yeah.

Okay.

We can go steady.

Really?

Yeah.


"I must be gone and live or stay and die."


Slow down.

Hockey you play in the center;

Free skating over that side.

Now, everyone, careful of holes in ice.

Stay away from the holes.

I hope you've been learning how to swim, 'cause today you're going in.


Go.

Bring it up and start passing.

Pass pass pass.

Over here.

What do you think you're gonna do with that?

I’m gonna hit you with it if you try anything.

Really?

Wow.

You know what I think?

I don't think you're gonna do a fucking thing.

I think you're just gonna stand there like the little girl you are.

And I’m gonna grab that stick and ram it right up your ass.

And then you're going swimming.

I want to hear click-click-click-click.

Shit, dude. Zoric's right over there checking us out.

Let it go. We'll beat his little ass later.

Give me the stick.

Give me the stick.

Argh!

Jesus Christ, are you fucking crazy?

Hey!

Hey!

Boy


Okay okay, just move. Please, just move back.

Move back.


Give me one reason why I shouldn't suspend you, Owen.

Can you think of one?

Don't you know what could have happened?

You seem like a smart kid.

I just don't want to see you going down the wrong path.

He's a good boy.

He really is.

Hello, is John there?

Excuse me, this is his wife. Who is this?

Hello, Cindy.

Will you please tell John that I called?

Hey there.

Is your mom and dad home?

Yeah.

Mom!

What?

Oh. Sorry to bother you, ma'am.

What's this about? I’m afraid there's been an incident with one of your neighbors here in the complex.

So we're just going around, talking to everybody to see if they know anything.

What kind of incident?

Owen, why don't you go to your room?


Sorry, guys. Jeez, could you take any longer?

I said sorry. Come on, let's go play Centipede.

Man, why are you even in that class? It’s so gay, dude.

Whatever.

Hey! Stop!

How's the cripple? Stop! Hey!

Jesus Christ, dude, watch out.

Man, that kid whaled on your ass. Can you still hear me, bro?

Stop.

Are you going home?

No, we're going over to Mark's.

Can I borrow your keys? I forgot mine.

Please.

Give me the fucking keys.

Thanks.

See you at home, little girl. Hey.

Shut up.

We didn't say anything. Shut up.

Abby, I did it.

You did what?

They were gonna push me in the hole in the ice, so I got a really big stick and I hit Kenny in the head really hard.

He had to go to the hospital.

I almost got suspended, but I didn't.

What you said- I stood up to them.

Owen.

Yeah?

Hey, you want to go somewhere?

Where?

It’s pretty cool, huh?

Yeah.

This kid that used to live in the building-

Tommy- he would come down here and drink and smoke with his high school friends.

And when they weren't here, he'd play ping-pong with me.

He was really cool.

But then he had to move away.

I kind of like it here.

It’s cool.

And I don't think any of the adults know about it- it's just us.


So what did you want to do down here?

Uh...

I think I have an idea.

Close your eyes.

Keep them closed.

Let's make a pact.

It only hurts for a second.

Here.


Abby?

Go away.

Virginia.

God damn it, Virginia.

Virginia!

Get- off!

Hey.

Hey.

Somebody call 911!


Mom?

Mom.

Hello?

Dad, can I talk to you?

Yeah sure, pal. What is it?

Do you- do you think there's such a thing as evil?

What?

What are you talking about, pal?

Can people be evil?

Listen, where are you getting all this stuff?

Is this from your mother- all her religious crap? No.

You know what, Owen? Listen listen, put your mother on the phone, okay? I want to talk to her.

She- she's not here.

All right, she's not- okay well, please tell her to call.

Just tell her to call me when she gets back, all right?

Okay?

Dad.

Owen, I want you to get that crap out of your head, okay?

Your mother- she- listen, look, she has problems.

And I’m gonna talk to her.

So I don't want to hear any more of this.

All right?

All right?

Yeah.

You have a good night, pal.

I love you.

I’m sorry about the last couple of months, you know?

But I’ll see you soon- real soon, okay?

I promise. Maybe next weekend.

Mm-hmm.

I love you.


Can I come in?

You have to say it.

You can come in.


Are you a vampire?

I need blood to live.

But how old are you- really?

12.

But...

I’ve been 12 for a very long time.

Where's your dad?

He wasn't my dad.

What's all this stuff?

I like puzzles.


I want to go now.

I want to go.

Are you gonna let me?

What are you gonna do to me?

I told you we couldn't be friends.


Hi. Are you Larry?

Can I talk to you for a minute?

Sure.

I’m sorry to bother you.

How is she doing?

It’s been quite a night.

They had to give her over six pints of blood.

We're just waiting to see if her body rejects it.

Well, I won't keep you long.

I just- I need ask you about the description you gave of the little girl.

You said that she had long blonde hair, she was 12 years old and she wasn't wearing any shoes.

Right? That's right.

Have you ever seen this man?

He's a suspect in a murder investigation.

Looks like a guy from our building.

Did he have a daughter like the girl you described?

I don't know. I’ve only seen him a few times.

Why? Do you think this has something to do with your murder case?

Maybe. We're starting to think that some of them might be involved in some sort of Satanic cult. What?

We found another body a few days ago- same MO, victim completely drained of blood.

There were two bite marks, small ones, on the victim's neck- just like a little child's.

Jesus Christ.

Oh!

Virginia, Virginia. Stay back. Stay back.

Oh- mm.

We're told one patient was killed in the fire as well as one hospital nurse. The five-alarm fire started on the eighth floor of the hospital and took most of the day for crews to contain.

The official cause is still under investigation.

Hey. Hey.

You have to invite me in to your home.

What if I don't?

Why can't you just come in?

Is there something in your way?


No no no, stop stop.

You can come in. You can come in.

What was that?

I don't know.

I just know this is what happens if you don't invite me in.

What if I didn't say anything?

Would you have kept bleeding?

Would you have died?

I knew you wouldn't let me.

But if you can't, I’m gonna poke out one of your eyes.

Got it? An eye for an ear.

Three minutes.

You'd better take a deep breath.


Okay, Jimmy. Shut up.

Dude, come on. I said shut up!

Oh my God, oh my God.
