To get a feeling for the tone and especially the humor of it, read some of the “Selected Scenes.” If you’re curious to see everything, all in one script file, scroll down and read the “The Script So Far.”

Selected Scenes

“Intro: Elena and Sophus”

Free-spirited Sophie meets her serious sister Elena at the airport. Hints of old conflicts pop up as their enthusiastic Lyft driver Freddie drives them to the motel near their film location.

“David’s Dead. On the bright side…”

Jennifer’s boyfriend just got killed by the monster. Peter sympathizes as she explains that she was going to break up with David anyway. (A scene from the movie within the movie.)

“A Spirit Goes On Strike”

They’ve managed to conjure up a spirit, and figure out a way to make him appear on camera (since, after all, spirits are invisible). But now he says he won’t work if his name isn’t going to be in the credits. And another thing: He wants an agent!
