THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING HOOCHUM’S BARGAIN BASEMENT – FUNNY THRILLER SCRIPT

This funny thriller script turns the classic horror tale of the young couple alone in their car in a deserted area encountering a frightening or horrific thing on its head. A young couple have travelled to the BAD SIDE OF TOWN to get a coffee maker from Hoochum’s Bargain Basement, as the glass in their one has cracked, and they want to do something AWFUL. They want to replace the new one with the cracked one and take it back for a refund, PRETENDING THAT IT’S THE NEW ONE. SHOCKING!!!

They’ve had to travel across town, as their usual store burnt to the ground recently under VERY MYSTERIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES, in which the little old lady who owned the store barely escaped with her life. Rumour has it, however that the little old lady had a graduate student on the side.  On that fateful day he was working in the back of the store, and was very badly burnt in the fire and HE HASN’T BEEN SEEN SINCE…

Rumour also has it that he wasn’t, in fact using the old lady for her body, but for her coupon skills, which she was famed for. She could get a better deal with her coupons than anyone, and he was taking her for all that she knew.

But now that the couple has bought their new coffee machine, they’re about to go for a drive to a very deserted spot where anything could happen…
