Miss Colton grew nervous and called me.MILLERIm all right, Father. It was only a nightmare.F.

INT. HALLWAY -MISS COLTONS GUEST HOUSE -MORNINGMiss COLTON was outside the room waiting.M. COLTONHe was screaming Father, yelling things about demons, and cried out of getting away fromsomething.

  4. 4. F. FRANKYet you scream in fear from it.MILLERI’m not denying it’s... humph!... scary. It frightens me, but that doesnt give it any meaning, doesit?F. FRANKIt seems to me it’s getting worse.MILLERIt is.(Miller nods, very serious)F. FRANKWant to hear what I think?MILLER(Miller leaves one sack of flour on the deposit. His arms relaxed over the pile of flour sacks) Idont mind, father.F. FRANKI believe your dream is your self punishment for your mistakes in the war.MILLERThere werent any demons in the war, father.F. FRANKThose demons represent the fear you have of being punished for your mistakes. You must stopfeeling guilty about it, as a soldier you knew nothing could be done.MILLER(He gazes into nothing, remembering actions past.) No father, I couldve tried.6. EXT.

Now, please remove your vehicle.Jonathan nods prepares to join the caravan. A military truck passes by, CLOSE UP of a blondeblue eyed girl on the truck, she is sobbing, very sad. WE return to face MILLER, he has seen thegirl, looks down and moves ahead to join the caravan, however by the look on his eyes whiledriving we know he has made up his mind to see what has happened. FADE TO BLACK CUT TO:21. EXT. WYOMING COUNTRY -NIGHTWe see Millers car arrive, his lights are turned off, he sees a well covered place, parks his car,walks down and continues to move on, we see he is carrying a gun.21A. EXT. FURTHER UPMiller comes over climbs a hill and on the other side sees...22. EXT. AREA NEAR ANOMALY -NIGHTIts an overview of a valley, about two miles from where Miller stands there is a show of lights,you can hear the explosions of tank shells and helicopter rockets, plus weird lights coming fromthings on the ground. We can only see the light show, some lights are clearly alien to ourtechnology.-------Helicopter incident, cockpit trying to get away from the alien fire is finally caught by one ofthem.23. EXT. NEAR TOWN CLOSE TO ANOMALY -NIGHTJonathan is able to approach a tent Close Command Post, the attention of the guards is directedelsewhere. Through a hole he sees what is inside.CLOSE UP of his face watching inside the tent.
  10. 10. 24. INT. CLOSE COMMAND TENT -NIGHTWe see two bodies of Imps placed on metallic tables, no one is attending at them.A MAYOR is talking to someone by radio.MAYOR[...]Yes sir, the special NASA team managed to enter the pyramid, but there hasnt been anycommmunication since... no there is no jamming at all... perhaps the structure itself absorvesradiowaves, or theyre dead... Im afraid so sir, a nuclear attack is our only chance, the area is cleanof civilians and all troops can be out of the danger zone in twenty minutes, well destroy the aliensurvivors afterwards... understood sir, well begin to leave now[...]23. BACK TO SCENEJonathan walks away, deciding to leave since everything will be smoke in half an hour. Movessome steps away, and suddenly an image comes into his mind...25. INT. PRISON -ALIEN PYRAMID -MILLERS MENTAL IMAGE -DAYThe blonde, blue eyed girl is struggling against her captors and IMP holds her strongly, she wearschildish pants, she is crying other people are being held captive too, theyre being placed into somesort of vertical, slightly bent inwards, transparent coffins, there are rows of them in this room.23. BACK TO SCENEHe falls to his kneels shocked by the image on his head. He is sad and afraid, but turns towards thepyramid.26. EXT. AREA NEAR ANOMALY -NIGHTThe place has burns of the fighting. However most of the fighting is beyond a hill. A man appersover the hill and hes inmediately struck by a ray beam, red in color, and falls near Miller, heapproaches the dying man.MILLERThe people of the town, where are they?SOLDIER 2Who are you, what are you doing here?... leave.MILLERThe people?SOLDIER 2Captured, taken inside...that thing.(The soldier faints.)Miller grabs the body. Carries him until he hears human voices.Lies the body on the ground.
  11. 11. MILLERHelp!...Help!27. INT. OUTPOST -AREA NEAR ANOMALY -NIGHTSome soldiers hear the shouting and leave the tent to help.26. BACK TO SCENEMiller is taking all the weapons and munitions the soldier has, then he sees the soldiers are comingand leaves. The soldiers see the body.SOLDIER 3Over here!(To soldier 2) You will be all right man, help is on its way. (Takes a closer look,CLOSE UP of soldier 2, he is unconcious).Miller grabs a backpack from one of the dead, and grabs more cartridges, three times, as he movesforward.28. EXT. BATTLE -AREA NEAR ANOMALY -NIGHTA REVENANT throws a plasma ray out of a bionic implant on his arm.We see the plasma charge head for a tank and scores a near miss. The tank fires back and hits theREVENANT blowing it to pieces. Others REVENANTS follow the tanks path with beams andfinally destroy the tank. There is a lot of fire from IMP rays, and M-16, M-60 machine guns. Theman are firing from covered positions, except those following the tank, the IMPs move fast andfire fast taking cover randomly.29. EXT. ENTRANCE PATH -FRONT OF PYRAMID -NIGHTThe floor looks like dirt squashed flat into slabs. Near the entrance there are only two IMPs, theyseem distracted, Miller sneaks on them and kills both without much trouble.MILLERThat wasnt so hard.Aproaching the IMPs Miller sees that the creatures have an incrusted backpack, a cable comes outof it up to a bionic implant on their right hand, through which they fire.30. EXT. ENTRANCE TO THE PYRAMID -NIGHTThe entrance looks very alien, it has two columns before the gate. The gate is opened. Miller takescover in one of the columns takes a glimpse inside and moves inside.31. INT. ENTRANCE CIRCLE -ALIEN PYRAMID -NIGHTThe first chamber is like a circle, and has five separate ways, all heading inside the pyramid, thegate is at the other end making the circle slightly flat on one side. On the floor there is a smallstream of a white, shining, thick liquid. The stream is covered with grated slabs, the stream seemsto be everywhere.As soon as he enters, Miller hears a sound of footsteps. Takes cover on a blind spot. Two creaturesenter the circle, they are a pair of ARMED GUARDs (HEAVY WEAPON DUDEs), but theyretotally black, unlike those on the game. The sight on their helmets shows a human, yet, soulless
  12. 12. look. The creatures leave the pyramid.Miller enters one of the paths, the first to his right.32. INT. CROSSWAY -ALIEN PYRAMID -NIGHTThe stream is a thin line of white in all hallways, and corridors. Miller carefully approaches acrossway. The corridors mix the dantesque and hellish with high technology. On the crosswaythere are two IMPs and one ARMED GUARD. One of the IMPs sees him and shouts, theARMED GUARD turns to shoot at Miller, killing the IMP on its way. Miller hits the ground andfires killing the ARMED GUARD. Taking a look at it, Miller sees its only an empty casket, withsome strange machinery in it. The noise made by the firefight, brings sounds of excitement fromthe left side, Miller heads onward.33. INT. DOOR SECTION -ALIEN PYRAMID -NEAR DAWNMiller moves carefully, trying to hear any threat. Walks up to a door, looks around. Suddenly thedoor OPENS, the gate moves upwards really quick. Miller only has time to turn around, moveaway a Little, and look at the appearing figure. The new creature is obscured by the camera angle,it moves after Miller has turned, and gets it into FOCUS.The creature is a man, wearing a special suit, with a Backpack and a modern looking helmet. Thesuit is burned in several places, and seems very fit for battle. We see the NASA signs plus theamerican flag on his shoulder and breast pocket. He has a modern looking machine gun. Thehelmets sight allows to see his face.34. EXT. TOP OF PYRAMID -NEAR DAWNSeveral IMPs, ARMED GUARDs and REVENANTs are handling a weapon with excitement,several miles above the earth an atomic warhead is about to reach destination. The weapon, sort ofdish with a welded gun, beams a ray to the warhead, it then falls harmlessly to earth.33. BACK TO SCENENEW GUYWho the heck are you!MILLERCall me Doom.NEW GUYIs that a code for something? Are you even supposed to be here?DOOMI doubt youre authorized. Lets move on.35. INT. HALLWAY -PYRAMIDNEW GUYAre you being followed?DOOMMaybe not, but Im not going to risk it.
  13. 13. NEW GUYHow did you get in?DOOMSame as you, through the front door.NEW GUYCut the bull man, what are you doing here?DOOMIt would take too long to explain, all you need to know is that Im here to help. (Pause) Where isthe people of the nearby town?NEW GUYThey are on the third level, placed inside some transparent coffins, with cables on their heads. Iwas on my way to look for help to try rescue them, on the way out my team and I runned into acouple of two legged bulls, (shakes his head) I dont know if someone else made it. Without help itwill be impossible to get the people out.DOOMWell have to try without any help.NEW GUYDamn, why?!(he stops)DOOMThis area was scheduled for a nuclear attack, if Im not wrong the missile already hit us. It mightnot have made an impact on the pyramid but the land outside is probably radioactive. So, we areall this people have.NEW GUYAre we suppose to take them out so that they can die from the fallout, instead of whatever theyredoing to them.DOOMWe could leave the radioactive area quickly, there will be some effects but at least they will bealive. Are you in, or are you out?NEW GUYDoom, thats you, right?DOOMI am now.NEW GUY(Moves his sight upwards) Im lieutenant Michael Corman. I have something you might like.
  14. 14. (Corman shows Doom a holographic map of the pyramid, its an alien gadget. It looks like aminiature round stereo, one end seems fit for an alien socket.)You know, this invasion bridgehead also seems to be a depot of some sort, the place is filled withweapons and gadgets, placed in between the walls. Some are easy to understand like this map, butI wouldnt risk touch other things. In case you want one (Gives a map to Doom)DOOMThanks. Wont you show me how to use it?CORMANSure, (They take cover behind a broad column) Its easy. Theyre simple function buttons, it seemsthose dumb beasts are only pawns. The green button turns it on.35A INSERT -HOLOGRAPHIC MAPThe pyramid is seen, like in an x-ray. Lines red, violet and yellow.CORMAN(V.O)Those buttons (We see a cross of four) move the center, this goes to upper levels ( , the centerimage moves up and down, the pyramid has five levels) those... to the sides ( , moves slightlyto left and right). Once you have centered it you push the blue button (We see the button) and itenlarges the area, up to ten square meters.35B BACK TO SCENEView of them together, seeing the holomap.DOOMOk, now show me where the people is.35C INSERT -HOLOGRAPHIC MAPCorman moves the center to the third level, south side (Right) a big chamber that has rows of longboxes.CORMAN(V.O)(We see his finger pointing out the direction) This is it. There are two ways to get in, east or west,none is guarded but first we would have to get there.DOOMHave you checked both ways?CORMANNo, Ive only seen the western path.DOOMSomeone has to check the other way... Ill do it, either way will be new for me anyhow.
  15. 15. CORMANThat makes sense. After we get there, what do we do?DOOMOnce there well figure what to do.CORMANGreat plan.DOOMI dont think we have many options. The people could come up with ideas.CORMANLets hope they can be set free.DOOMLets hope.They stand, shake hands.DOOMSee you there.CORMANSee you, and good luck. (Doom turns to follow his path, Corman grabs him quickly) Wait, (Pause)whatever you do, dont shoot the sleepers.DOOMSleepers?CORMANBig creatures, mummy like, they seem asleep inserted into the wall, but dont try anything againstthem, theyre some sort of alarm devices, and have a cry so powerful it can knock you out.DOOMThanks for the warning... see you at the prison. (They raise their arms in salute to each other, andquickly leave)36. INT. HALLWAY 2 -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYDoom speedily walking through it, but alert and careful.37. INT. ARCH VILE PLACE -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYDoom comes to a place where there is an ARCH-VILE, with its hands crossed over its chest. Likesleeping on a rocky place inserted into the wall. The ARCH-VILE is gray in color, unlike that ofthe game. It doesnt seem to be aware of whats happening around it. Doom faces it with his gunpointing at it, with his back to the wall. Doom moves through the hall.
  16. 16. When hes nearly out, says:DOOMSome alarm system...38. INT. HALLWAY X -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYDoom goes on. Always alert.39. INT. HALLWAY WITH SECRET -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYDoom is moving, when he sees a red big bright button, pushes it and part of the wall slides to theside, revealing a deposit of: EXO-ESKELETONS for the Armed Guards, and the modern lookingmachine guns they have (It is not a gatling-like machine gun, as those in the game, it looks like athick M-16); plus, ANTI-RADIATION suits. Doom wears the ANTI-RADIATION suit, it isntdifficult to do so. He also grabs three alien machine guns, as many as he can carry. At the End of the Hallway there is a door, hes going for it, when it slides open. Notknowing what to do, he just faces the wall besides the door, concealing the guns between his legs.Two BARON-KNIGHTs (Like either BARON of HELL or HELL KNIGHT) enter followed by afliying CACODEMON. The creatures dont seem to notice him, CLOSE UP of the glance one ofthe BARON-KNIGHTs gives Doom, not paying further attention (They think he’s one of thehuman underlings they now have). As soon as they pass him Doom waits for them to move furtherahead, and begins to leave the room. Suddenly the BARON-KNIGHT ahead of the group sees thesecret depot opened and in disorder, therefore turns in anger and points at the already escapingDoom. The BARON-KNIGHTS have bionic implants on their arms too, but theyre lessnoticeable and more powerful. The CACODEMON shoots through the mouth, a purple spit offire. WE see some shots get the door.40. INT. COLUMNS ROOM -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYDoom jumps inside the room, some small, but colorful explosions happen behind him, at the door.The room has two rows of columns in the middle of it at even distances, it has four entrances andits a very big place. Doom takes cover behind a column.The CACODEMON is the first to enter. CLOSE UP of the glance the CACODEMON gives theplace.

LONG HALLWAY -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYThe corridor is shaped like a "T", Doom incoming through the vertical line. At the left end there isa MANCUBUS walking carelessly and slowly, its BACK TO Doom. CLOSE UP Dooms eyes,CLOSE UP the MANCUBUS arm cannons. The right end is clear, Doom looks back an sees theREVENANTS, heads to the left towards the MANCUBUS looking carefully back as to wait forthe REVENANTs entrance. The REVENANTs appear, Doom is close to the MANCUBUS looksat it, turns and fires at the REVENANTs. All very fast:The MANCUBUS hears the shooting and begins to turn.Doom hits the floor.The REVENANTs fire at Doom.The REVENANTs hit the MANCUBUS.The MANCUBUS fires its large arm cannons at the REVENANTs, the fire kills them, theMANCUBUS turns around and continues its calm walk.Doom lifts his head from the floor, looks at the dead Revenants, turns slightly to see the Mancubuswalking away.

PRISON -WEST ENTRANCE -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYMichael is hiding as best he can on the west entrance of the prison area, the entrance doesn’t haveany visible physical obstacle on any side, door, bars, glass, nothing.INSIDE the prison area, two IMPs and a REVENANT are placing a human being into one of thesechambers. The man is so scared he can only groan desesperately. The IMPs hold him tight, theRevenant grabs a cable from a gadget and sticks it into his neck, the man losses balance.

He is way off his route, turns it off and moves forward. He suddenly sees a largewindow, off his angle when he entered the habitation, WE see him approach the window with fearand wonder. He sees...47. EXT. DEMON WORLDWe see a large and very long bridge, made with several thick supports, joined to the alien pyramidfrom their dimension to ours. The bridge is anything but technological, it is surrounded by a largeriver of red lava, far away, we see the mainland, filled with ziggurat and pyramid-like structuresbarely visible. The sky is also red, cloudy with lightning in some areas. The transit on the bridge is
  18. 18. scarce but we see a caravan closing in.Beyond in the horizon, we see at least two other such structures, the front part, of what should bealien pyramids in other worlds, cant be seen, there is only a blur.At the irregular bottom of the bridge, where some land arises from the lava river, we see somepeople working, or at least they look like people. They’re just shadows in the distance.46. BACK TO SCENEDoom looks at them with regret, like saying those cannot be saved.47. CUT TO SCENEThese "people" working at the bottom wear a suit like the one Doom wears now. Above themthere are several CACODEMONs.46.

HALLWAY BACKROOM -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYDoom enters the place quickly, a strong metallic sound makes him stop. A lot of light comes out ofa room into the hallway.

CONTROL ROOM -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYWE see a large Room with a ceiling higher than anywhere else in the pyramid.

Thenhe enters the prison.The Room has rows and rows of people placed inside some transparent coffins, close to slightlylaid to the wall. Each wall has two rows of coffins, one on each side. The coffins are very tight,beside each coffin there is a small screen showing where their alter ego is working. The panelcontrol is at a high altitude, about 5.8 ft above the floor. The small village had a population of1000 people, about 600 of them are here. Doom walks by looking carefully at the screens.50A. INSERT -SMALL SCREEN IMAGEWe see the alter egos point of view.

INSERT -SMALL SCREEN IMAGEWe see the sea of lava at the base of the bridge, it seems these people are hardening the stone withcomplicated machines.DOOM(Continues)They seemed like people, with this very same suit. Do you think they have some of them reallyworking there?CORMANIt would be too big a coincidence, these people are more useful to them as slaves controllingremotes than real workers, those things seem awfully heavy to me (talking about the machinesthey seem to be using on the screens), a real human being wouldnt be able to lift it.DOOMTrue, and I suppose the human shape is used to avoid confusing the brain. But how are theyordered, how do they know what to do?CORMANTheyre drugged before placing them inside. Once there, who knows how they do it...DOOMThose inside must be those human-like guards, with the heavy weapon. I saw a lot ofexoeskeletons in one of those depots, I guess they’re replacements, or awaiting controllers. If wecould only set one of them free...CORMANI think I can do that, but whom do we free?

Any creature enters it and isgiven an aura of energy, WE ONLY SEE a blue light gleaming inside, from all directions. Beyondthis "wall" there is a large pool filled with soft, and hard pieces of "something" the juice filling thepool is totally red, there is a lot of what looks like red smashed potatoes. The creatures kneel andgrab as much as they can, making a mess of it all. Some are drinking the juice. The camera showsthose two processes of eating, the energy and the organic food.

HALLWAY 10 -ALIEN PYRAMID -DAYMusic begins.The Prison is placed on the southern part of the pyramid, in level three, the dining room is on leveltwo in the north. Therefore the groups way out is east to west, towards the entrance.We see an Armed Guard enter the hallway very quickly, make a sign to those behind him, andthree more Armed Guards appear theyre followed by a group of eighty people plus more thantwenty Armed Guards distributed through the long group.DOOM(V.O)The first group will the largest, all those recently awaked will be with them, later on, it will bemore difficult to get them out.The first escene we see is an Armed Guard (AG) entering a Hall, the AG is followed by two otherAGs. Very quickly we see the people appear behind them, its a very large group, of about seventy,many are being carried by others, theyre joined by more than 20 AGs. They only have to wipe outthree IMPs, once again the fluids fall on the liquid, and arrives at the nearest ARChvile place, thestream gains speed with every dead, the first to check this out is a BARON KNIGHT, he is killedalso but manages to destroy an AG, thats when we see a boy with one eye totally red. As thesecond group passes, one REVENANT and two IMPs come. The third group has to fight against aREVENANT, several IMPs, a BARON KNIGHT and Demons. The heroism of BLONDIE isshown here, she’s an awesome Armed Guard controller. Thats when they decide to gamble, andleave at once with those working at the lava point, one of the WORKER EGO falls, and theCACODEMON shouts: the true battle begins. They are unable to leave and have to retreat, all thepeople remaining are about 70, most are handling the Alter egos the situation gets desperate andDOOM does it.(Well, it seems I switched to narrative starting at this point. I guess the numbering and ANGLESand things were getting on my nerves. Yep, that must’ve been it. No, no, now that I’ve read a Littleof it, I can see it more like a summary of what’s going on, script shorthand if you will)Flashes of the first and second groups, and how as many people as possible are being waked up,people holding 3Dmaps examine them one by one, since nearly all the creatures are in the diningroom, most of them can be set free now, they aren’t watched. <> All the people working near the Cacodemons, on the bridge, (25) werent bothered at all,
  34. 34. they couldnt risk being discovered by the Cacodemons. Every person that awoke was given theoxygen treatment, only a bit was enough to make them react but it took longer to have them totallyconscious, and some, although conscious, were incapable of dominating the alter egos. So the process was the following: a person was awakened and another took his place topark the alter-ego. They knew time was crucial since, now, most of the halls were clear ofcreatures. The most rested persons took the job of controlling the alter-egos, scorting the firstgroup out. Among them was the little blonde blue eyed girl (The one he saw on his dreams not theone in the truck. "Blondie" for short). "Are you sure you can handle this?" asks Doom. "She parked three guards already, other people are tired." Adds mike to the girls nod. "Ok then, be strong girl. Imagine youre in a game." The audience is introduced to the viewfrom the alter-ego once she enters it. For a brief moment of the escapade. The first group, of about 35 people, leaves with no problems at all, the second group of 40has an incident with some Imps. The Imps are wiped out (A group of three). All the time theyve got at least twenty people on control of the alter egos, changing fromalter-ego to the one most useful at the time. Several Armed guards are destroyed once abandoned.People begin to run in a continuous fashion. A little girl is caught in the firefight, her mother lies dead near her, she only screams indespair. The alter-ego controlled by Blondie comes to her help. Grabs her an runs, with her,toward the entrance, other armed-guards come to help. Opposition grows in intensity, good lucktheyve over 350 alter-egos. Before the alter-egos are destroyed, when under attack, the people aredisconnected from them, and a small effect of electrical discharge is produced in the cables. Monotonous scenes of Imps, Demons and Revenants just shooting or being shot at, arecombined with the faces of Doom and Mike over the 3-D map that explains to the audience what ishappening. The Prison-coffins are in the south area, the pyramid is facing West, the bridge is dueEast. And the dining room is in the north area, so their escape route is East-west in the south area1. <> All the people theyve to wake up now are the ones working on the bridge, they carefullyplace 25 people to quickly replace them. Once in control of the alter-egos, they leave the workingarea through the nearest entrance. A Cacodemon observes curious as the working human shapesbegin to leave, then it sees one of them fall and several others "parked", unlike the Armed guardsthose fall to the floor. Then it gives the alarm. The Cacodemon begins an unpleasant cry highlyacute, like morse code sung by a sick shrilly singer. The Morse code is received by the sleepingArch-vile, it connects itself to the white stream of thick liquid present everywhere, the liquidvibrates with different tones of bright-white to black. In every single corner of the pyramid themessage is received: the humans are escaping. All the big creatures: Cacodemons, Mancubus, Baron Knights, and most Revenants were"dining", now that room begins to spit out creatures toward the prison (coffins) area. The creaturesno longer think its only some armed guards gone berserk, now they know it is an attempt toescape. <> Over 25 people are controlling Armed guards and more than seventy are still with them.As many people possible are told to carry the weakest and make a run for it. Blondie doesnt want 1 See graphic at the end.
  35. 35. to leave yet, she wants to stay with the last group. Doom doesnt want to, but mike tells him: "Perhaps she believes this is a game, but she is good at it. Let her do it!" Doom finally agrees and asks Blondies mother to stay, too. <> The creatures are coming. Simple scenes with some Baron Knights (Two) with aMancubus behind and a single Cacodemon, in rapid succession, combined with an impressivenumber of dots in the 3-D map would inspire as much awe, as a more expensive complicated live,with models, scene. Then show the Armed guards firing desesperately and being destroyed so fast peoplereceive the electric shock and are hurt. The little girl is very good at handling Armed guards, sheisnt hurt once. More complicated scenes arent necessary here, when the bunch of creatures iscoming, because: <> Doom realizes something else is needed in order to escape, a big distraction. "Im going to do something, play our last card." "Where are you going?" asks Mike. "To create a distraction." "But what..." "Listen to me, its our only chance. The minute you see these creatures moving awaytowards the east, leave. Most are coming this way, that leaves the escape route with littleopposition, leave as fast as you can. No arguments. I have to meet my doom." <> Doom heads for the Control room, leaving the prison coffins area by the east entrance. Ashe heads towards the C.Room he searches for a better weapon, opening every door he sees. Hefinds a rocket launcher, its used like those rifles of Aliens II. With it Doom opens the giganticdoor of the control room and fires. The Cyberdemon turns to face him and covers himself with his arm an its hit by the rocket,the skin seems irritated and one vein erupts showing red blood, otherwise the Cyberdemon isholding firm. "Human." says the CyberD with a deep voice, really deep, bass. Doom fires another rocket. This time the CyberD strikes it, some debris hits the roof. "Human." repeats, and Doom fires again. The CyberD crosses his arms over his chest,receives the rocket, and moves agressively forward swinging his arm at Dooms rockets. Afterthree more rockets the cartridge is empty, the CyberD tries to squash him. He moves fast enoughto avoid the creaturess foot. "Human, do not mock me. We are the cosmic nightmare. Do not dare pretend you candestroy me. "You are brave, try not to be a fool, surrender now to our might, and Ill reward yourcourage by giving you ten times your power. Make despair and pain yours to give, or die." Doom just stares at the talking two legged bull. "Perhaps, we can work something out...maybe...", he replies. Then instead of talking,heads towards a room beyond, a rocket explodes behind him. Doom continues to run through aroom filled with pillars hearing and feeling the rocket explosions, altough not one touches himdirectly. Reloads the rocket launcher and fires back whenever he can. Finally he is caught againsta column, and fires his last rocket, the CyberD gets it on its shoulder. The CyberD fires at him,Doom manages to move away, but the blast sends him crashing into a wall, its an arms depot like

Doom quickly grabs the gigantic weapon, the CyberD sees it and aims at Doom. Doomfires and the blast destroys the rocket sent by the CyberD at the last second, and also the CyberD. <> The "death" of the CyberD wakes up the Arch-vile. It shrieks in anger with its arms totallyspread and showing its claws, and it splashes into the white stream of liquid, it swims at greatspeed under it. We see the White liquid through narrow slits on the floor, beneath those there arewide pipes filled with it. <> Mike sees how, after the white liquid shines for a brief second, every single creature begunto move eastwards. "Lets go! Now!" <> Doom moves towards the control room, he sees the Cyberdemons head and it suddenlyawakes. Its eyes pure red rage. "You do not understand our might, our grasp rules in countless suns...our forces conquernations in all corners of the universe..." Doom just continues to move. Suddenly the white liquid erupts with a shriek, its theArch-vile. An it begins to concentrate a great amount of energy around its arms, a blue mist, withflashes of energy, begins to appear. Doom fires the BFG but the Arch-vile enters the liquid beforebeing hit. Doom moves away unable to understand whats going on. Then the Cyberdemon beginsto take shape anew, Doom runs. In front of the control center Doom hears how the Cyberdemonapproaches with a quick and powerful step. Behind him there is a chamber, Doom believes its a teleporter. The Cyberdemon appears, behind it, the wet and angry Arch-vile. Doom fires his weaponat the control panel and runs for the teleport chamber, any place would be better now. In frustrated anger the CyberD fires a missile at Doom, but it misses him. Once inside thechamber Doom presses a big red button, in the blink of an eye he is at the frontal entrance. Its aplace with a nice view of the surrounding area, fit for the CyberD. <> Mike and the rest of the people can be seen beyond still running, taking an occcassionalglance behind hoping to see the friend who saved them from doom. <> The Pyramid is beginning to desintegrate, Doom runs as fast a he can, but he is caught bythe final blast. <> Hummers search through the area. Its covered with ashes two feet thick. Theyre usinginfrared, so its kinda easy. Soldiers jump out of the Hummer. "He is here!" says one of them. They put him unto a stretcher and lift him up to the hummer. Dooms eyes open. "Hes still alive." "Good, this guy saved the whole country." 2 The game’s major weapon.
  37. 37. "I wonder what got him here in the first place." Doom isnt paying attention to the voices, he is looking at his lost partner in irak, atranslucent image of him, he is joyful and giving doom a thumbs up. Dooms face gains a lot ofpeace. Mike and the rest of the people are in other military vehicles, the camera approachesBlondie and her mother. They are both covered with ashes but alive. <> The hummers drift away and the camera enters the small dead village. It goes to a house inparticular, its filled with military stuff (Hey, I saw this guy die on Irak), and there’s a familypicture, not big; the mother, the military father and Blondie. THE ENDCopyright © 2012 Rodrigo Antezana PattonAll possible rights reserved. As a ‘fan fic’, you may freely distribute it if the credits and otherinformation stays intact and is not for profit.About the script:This script was written back in 1997, that’s 15 years ago! Therefore, any resemblance to anymovies that came after that is just pure coincidence (the crystal coffins remind me of ‘the matrix’,now).Of course I had been a fan of the game for quite a while, but I don’t recall exactly why I wrote thescript, there would’ve been some objective, a plan, far fetched as it may have been. Don’t know,maybe I thought I could pitch it to someone.Remember that the ‘DOOM’ movie appeared in 2005, I was, like all, excited about it, and deeplydissappointed after seeing it, I like to think this script is way better, hopefully you’ll think that aswell.Its format seems to be a mix of the ‘master scene form’ with ‘write-on-word’ adaptation, while theending is just pure prose. Actually, the file is so old that it was ‘wordstar’, luckily Word managedto read it, and it also managed to get the ‘graphic’, which is just and idea of how it’s placed, itdoesn’t give any idea of the scale.All I did with the script, this year, is fix a thing or two, correct some ortography, and that’s it.Other than some small changes, it’s exactly the same script as the one I wrote then. I’d say it is agood shoot them up, no nonsense adaptation.I obviously lacked a lot of information when I wrote it, but the basic idea of ‘doom’ is there.About the author:Well, most of my work is written in Spanish, I have a published novel (2001, El viaje, ‘the
  38. 38. voyage’), I compiled a book, along with a friend, with Bolivian lovecraftian short stories(Inmigraciones de Arkham, Arkham Immigrations), sort of a homage to H. P. Lovecraft. I’ve beenwriting about movies since, precisely, 1997, in Bolivian newspapers and magazines. I have a blog:mimeme.over-blog.comRight now I’m involved in many things, besides work. I want to do some videos for youtube, inEnglish, I’m going to fix ‘ten movies’ in an equal number of videos; I just uploaded my comicbook to kindle, titled ‘It’s just a river’. If you enjoy dark humor, plus silliness, plus some thought,my bet is you’ll like it. Also, the first part of my second novel is coming up, straight to kindle, inSpanish.And it’s in the process of getting ready for this, that and other things, when my old scripts cameup… and I have two more: ‘Paint my freedom’, and artsy story of personal selfdiscovery; and‘Gesellschaft’, ‘Societies’, a sci-fi flick that I wrote back in 1999 or 2000. I’ll check them againand then I’ll upload them to kindle, otherwise, they’ll just be absent; and I like both works, withflaws and all.
