ABOVE SNAKES
Written By Taino Soba

EXT. the TOWN OF STERLING - DAY

WIDE

The town's people are gathered around the gallows behind the court house to witness the execution of the outlaw, SAM SPICE.

Standing on the scaffold of the gallows are Sam; SHERIFF, DEPUTY, HANGMAN, and PREACHER. The Hangman puts the noose around Sam's neck, as the Sheriff reads out the list of crimes he's been convicted of.

SHERIFF

Samuel P. Spice... You are hereby sentence to hang until dead, for the crimes of robbery and murder.

Preacher steps up to Sam.

PREACHER

Do you have any last words son?

Sam looks out to the crowd.

SAM


Only to let you folks know, I'll be coming back for any of ya who try to claim my teeth after I'm put under.


Sam turns to Deputy to his right, who is holding a shotgun with a stupid grin on his face.

SAM (CONT'D) (O.S.)

That goes for you too tubby.

Deputy gives a smirk back at Sam.

Sheriff nods to the Hangman, signaling him to release the trapdoor stationed under Sam's feet.

Close - Lever pulled

Down angle - SAM

Sam's body drops through the TRAPDOOR, SNAPPING his neck.

Close - SAM's dangling feet - Opening Tittle

int. cave - nIGHT

PROSPECTOR CHIPS away at rock with his pick ax, in search for gold.

Ax hits a strange canister, punctuating through it.

Prospector struggles to pull ax out; when he finally does, he notices a black ooze at the end that punctured through.

Prospector musters up the strange liquid by gliding his index finger across the stained portion of the ax.

He examines it for a moment, rubbing it between his fingers. Prospector decides to sample the ooze and sticks his finger in his mouth.

The taste causes him to gag.

He quickly shines his light on the canister.

Close - canister

The canister has weird alien hieroglyphics on the side of it.

Extreme Close up - prospector's eyes

PROSPECTOR

(sounds as if talking with mouth full)

What in the hell language is this? Indian?

He notices his MUFFLED voice; when he look down, he finds his finger still in his mouth being chewed to the bone.

PROSPECTOR (CONT'D)

Ah!

Black ooze is dripping from the canister where it was punctured, and seeping into the ground.

Close - ooze working its way through bedrock

ext. grave yard - nIGHT - TWO WEEKS LATER

Deputy is digging up Sam's grave, in search for his gold teeth. The UNDERTAKER helps him by providing light from a lantern.

Undertaker

I just don't understand why you didn't grab his teeth before they buried him.

Deputy

I was, but the Sheriff was watching over the body like a hawk.

(Beat)

I did manage to get them famous guns of his.

UNDERTAKER

Do you have them with ya?

Deputy

Heck no. I sold them to Joe the BARTENDER for twenty five dollars each, plus he promised me drinks on the house for a year.

UNDERTAKER

Wow, you are...

Deputy's shovel HITS Sam's Pine box coffin.

Deputy

Whowee!

Undertaker

Hush! You going to get us caught.

Deputy

Ah... Don't be worrying none. There aint a living soul for at least a mile.

Deputy plunges the shovel down on the coffin SPLITTING it open.

Close - in coffin

Deputy's hand feels its way in the coffin.

The eyes of Sam's corpse open.

Undertaker

Hurry up, something doesn't feel right. I don't know? Its like... as if the ground is moving or something.

Deputy

Almost got it.

(Beat)

What the whiskey hell!

Sam reaches out of the coffin and grabs Deputy's face, then bites his nose clean off.

Deputy stands up and stumbles back in the grave.

Sam gets up. He stares at Deputy as he chews on his nose.

Sam realizes and spits the nose out.

SAM

What's going on, here? Were you tryin to take my teeth tubby?

Deputy is tries to climb out of the grave. An suddenly reaches out from the dirt wall and grabs his wrist. He's quickly surrounded by arms clawing at him.

SAM jumps back in shock. He looks up and sees the Undertaker starring at the Deputy as he's pulled in the dirt wall by all the arms.

The undertaker then turns to Sam, who's climbed to the edge of the grave.

SAM (CONT'D)

Aren't you going to help a fellah up?

Undertaker looks up and sees corpses digging themselves out of the other graves. He CRAPS himself and runs off.

SAM (CONT'D)

Shoot.

int. saloon - nIGHT

FARMER COONY pays the BARTENDER for his drink.

Sheriff sits and reads a book while The MAYOR entertains the other patrons with a game of cards.

FARMER Coony

That's it for me FRED. I have to make it home to the kids at some point.

BARTENDER

How many kids do you have now running that sweatshop of a farm of yours?

FARMER Coony

Hey, don't poke fun, having them lovely children of mine take care of the farm allows you fine gentlemen the pleasure of my good company.

BARTENDER

How many are there again?

FARMER Coony

Thirteen!

(Beat)

Eleven strapping boys and two delicate little flowers.

Mayor

Jeus man, if I ever decide to place taxes on baring children you'll have to foreclose your farm.

(Laughs)

FARMER Coony

Come now Mr. Mayor, if you did that, your brother would have less people to fill up his congregation every Sunday morning. Anyway I'm off gentlemen.

Farmer Coony leaves.

Sheriff

How is your brother Mayor?

Mayor

The usual preaching, but, you should know; isn't Your pretty little wife is a regular at his sermons?

Sheriff

Hold on now, my wife...

Undertaker bursts into the saloon.

undertaker

The dead are walking!

Mayor

Joe, don't sell any booze to that fellah right there.

Sheriff

Calm down what's the matter?

undertaker

I saw Sam Spice get up from his grave. And not just him the whole damn graveyard rose up. They killed the Deputy.

Sheriff

Mayor

The entire room stares at the Undertaker in silence.

Bartender stands behind the bar with smoke emitting from the end of his shotgun.

BARTENDER

I'm not sticking around for this.

Bartender jumps over the bar and runs out the back of the saloon.

Undertaker

I told you I saw him.

Sheriff

What the hell do you want? What's going on?

Sam steps up to the bar.

sam spice

What I want, is retribution, appeal, a drink.

Sam takes a shot of whiskey. The whiskey spills to the floor from the new hole in his gut. He looks at the bottle.

SAM SPICE (CONT'D)

Just aint the same.

(Beat)

What I need though, are brains.

Close - Sam grins

The men in the saloon start to panic.

SAM SPICE (CONT'D)

Sheriff

SAM SPICE

I'm not like them others. I still have my wits and winning personality, as you can see. But I do have this weird craven for brains I cant shake off.

Mayor

So why did you come back?

SAM SPICE

I came back for my boys, GABRIEL and MICHAEL, and also the gold you confiscated from me when this cactus needle, brought me it by my ankles.

Sheriff smiles, proudly.

Mayor

Gabriel and Michael?

Sheriff

They're his two side arms. The ones behind the bar the Deputy sold the Bartender. He figured tourist folks would pay, for a chance to hold the famous pistols of Sam Spice.

Mayor

Screaming and gunfire is heard from outside.

Sheriff

The Sheriff is strong and honest. He speaks his mind when he feels its appropriate. Somewhat of a traditionalist, he prefers to do things in the old way. Originally, his Father was the Sheriff of STERLING and he, his deputy. He took over the job of Sheriff after his father died of a stroke while trying to break up a fight. The Sheriff is married with no children of his own. He enjoys reading of the world outside of STERLING, but would never considering leaving.

Sam Spice

Samuel E. Spice Was born an outlaw. His ma and pa were a pair of legendary stage couch robbers, who were on the run with Sam since he was in the womb. They were finally gunned down by a band of bounty hunters ,in front of Sam when he was only seven years old. This left a mark on Sam that lead him to seek out revenge.
It took Sam another seven years to track down the last of the men responsible for his parents death. During this time Sam had gained his own reputation as thief and murder which eventually earned
him the title, THE MOST WANTED MAN IN THE LAND. He was recognized by his unique, bottom row of gold teeth, and his two legendary
pistols Michael and Gabriel which were
covered in tally marks totaling all his
victims. Sam even had a chest of gold
tied to his bounty, put up buy the
government, which would be given
the town or individual who caught him alive or dead.
For thirty three years, no sheriff, marshal, or bounty hunter could ever catch him. He's been running since he was born, and no one was better at it. Until the day he visited the town or STERLING and was caught and hung by its Sheriff.
NOTES: Sam is a funny an charismatic individual despite his violent history, and he tries to enjoy life when he can, and doesn't hesitate to end one when necessary.
