Shame Ghost
David Valdez, dir.

Production Description

Casting a webseries, "Shame Ghost," about a ghost and its human partner who work undercover for the Vatican "shaming" their targets into repentance. Company states: "In this pilot episode a teenager wants to join a gang, but his initiation is to masturbate to a haunted Playboy-esque magazine (twenty years earlier a convenience store clerk was shot and killed, the bullet landing in the periodical). Something soon rises, but it's none other than Shame Ghost to teach the teenager a valuable lesson! Note: There is absolutely no nudity involved in the making of the film. The 'masturbation' takes place underneath a blanket and is played comedically (think 'American Pie' meets 'Ghostbusters.' 'Shame Ghost' is being produced for the non-profit Channel 101 Film Festival in L.A. Google or Wiki 'Channel 101' for more details."

EXT. CONVENIENCE STORE - DAY
A doughy teenager, KENNY, looks at an old NUDIE MAG.

KENNY
But why can't I just whack off to
the internet?

NACHO (O.S.)
Because the internet isn't haunted
by a ghost, guero!

The cover reads PLAY-JUGS and has a WOMAN with big hair.

KENNY
It's her ghost that haunts it?

NACHO, a hispanic gang-member, grabs the magazine.

NACHO
No! This is the last time I'll
explain, so listen up. Twenty five years ago right at this convenience store, a clerk named Randall or Randy or maybe Brad, was popped during a robbery. The bullet rang through his heart, and landed in this issue of Play-Jugs. See the dried blood. And it's been like haunted ever since.

KENNY
Haunted by... the clerk?

NACHO
Chinga! Yes. You want to be in our
gang? Whack off to this magazine at the stroke of midnight. The exact time the clerk was shot. Mind you he did not die for three minutes. Most people don't know this.

KENNY
Do I have to, Nacho? Isn't that
against God?

NACHO
Against God? You were just caught
rubbing your cajones at church!

NACHO (CONT’D)
Take it. If you want to be in the
East Side Hoods, I'll see you tonight.

SHAME GHOST: PILOT DRAFT 1.2
KENNY SIDES

***IMPORTANT SCENE INFORMATION********
SYNOPSIS: Kenny wants to join a gang. Nacho, representing the East Side Hoods, gives Kenny a supposedly “haunted” Playboy- esque magazine (twenty years earlier a convenience store clerk was shot and killed, the bullet landing in the magazine). Kenny’s gang initiation is that he must masturbate to the cursed magazine on the anniversary of the clerk’s death.

There is absolutely NO NUDITY / NO SEXUAL ACTS involved in the film. The “masturbation” takes place underneath a blanket and is played comedically (think American Pie meets Ghostbusters).
The character of Nacho is not in the room with Kenny. Nacho supervises from a laptop webcam.
****************************************
INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT
Kenny sits on his bed staring at a TRASH CAN. He pulls out the discarded issue of Play-Jugs.
The green LED CLOCK reads 11:58.
A LAPTOP screen turns on. Kenny clicks an icon on a chat window. Nacho appears on screen, snacking on a SLIM-JIM.

NACHO
I thought you were gonna chicken-
out, holmes!

KENNY No. I'm ready.

NACHO
You better be. A pervy chancho like
you won't get no chicks if you're not repping the streets.

Kenny is embarrassed. Nacho realizes he went too far.

NACHO (CONT’D)
You can do it, ese. But you got to
hurry, it's almost midnight!

Kenny grabs the magazine. He unbuckles his pants.

NACHO (CONT’D) Whoa! Whoa! Put a blanket over
yourself! I'm no joto.

Kenny covers himself. He looks at the 80s girl's face. He slowly whacks under the blanket. He's having trouble.

NACHO (CONT’D) Hurry, bro.

KENNY
It's tough to do. It's just a still
picture.

NACHO
Use your imagination. That's half
the fun!

Kenny looks at the girl again. He closes his eyes. He quickens his pace.
A smile grows on his face.

KENNY
It's working. This is awesome! I'm
almost there.

NACHO
Good to hear. Just ignore that
ghost.

KENNY Ghost?!

Kenny opens his eyes. A GHOST, basically a sheet with holes cut out, floats next to him. Nacho is highly entertained.

NACHO
Yeah holmes. I told you that
magazine was haunted!

GHOST Whooooooo!

KENNY
Holy crap! Holy shitballs! Holy...
Is it whacking off?

The ghost is clearly whacking off to Play-Jugs.

NACHO
Yeah. It's kinda a perv. You need
to finish!

KENNY
Jesus Christ, I can't!

NACHO
Better hurry. Remember, he was shot
at the stroke of midnight, but didn't die for 3 minutes. If you don't squeeze one out by then ese, he'll curse you for a whole year!

Kenny looks at the clock. It reads 12:01.

KENNY Ahhhh!

GHOST Whoooo! Whooooo!

Kenny masturbates fast. He mutters to himself

KENNY
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord
is with thee.

The Play-Jugs magazine shoots out of Kenny's hand. The ghost descends on Kenny.

GHOST Whooooo!

KENNY
Oh my god! What do I do?!
