PROLOGUE TO HOLY GROUND - NO DELIVERANCE FROM THIS EVIL
An empty church waits in the night. Moonlight comes through
the windows. Monsters... horrible creatures are heard. There is
screaming. A couple runs inside the church. A man (Art) has a
shotgun and pauses at the open door. A woman (Bea) rushes inside.
Get down... get behind the pews...
They're stopping at the fence.
Thank God. Save your bullets.
There's someone else out there trying to get through.
Bea goes to the door and looks. She is scared.
You have to help them.
Art runs out yelling. Shotgun blasts are heard.
In here! It's safe.
Another couple comes in. The man (Turk) is hurt.
The woman (Molly) struggles to get him inside. Bea helps.
Don't touch his arm... something is wrong with his arm.
I don't know what they did to me.
Does it still hurt?
Don't worry... I will be okay.
Can we put something on it?
Art comes from the door scoops out some water from a holy
water receptacle. He goes up to Turk and pours it on his arm. The
arms steams in response. Molly and Bea gasp. Turk yells and
collapses. Molly cradles him.
What did you do?
Those things out there are pure evil. I had a feeling
the holy water might help.
