Scene 1: A woman walks down the street, foot steps are heard. She stops & looks arounds nervously, but no one is around. She begins to walk & a man in a long black coat appears & top hat grabs her. She never has anytime to scream, & the picture fades. Slashes are heard in the darkness. The picture comes back, & the man is scene walking away with a big knife.
Scene 2: An airplane is seen landing. Then you see Zeke getting off a plane. A woman with an acent says “welcome to england.” “Thanks” replies Zeke with a smile. He walks through customs. When he gets outside, he looks around. No one seems to be looking. He puts out his hand, & his gun apears. “Nice trick, you should be in the carnival.” He looks over with a tired expression to The Devil. “So have you seen any of the tourist atractions yet?” “I just got off the plane!.” “You’re wasting time, Stone Henge is just a few miles south of here.” “I’m here on bussiness, don’t you remember?” “So Zeke you finally got some work ethic, but you lost your sense of fun.” Zeke begins walking down the street. Needless to say The Devil follows, “do you even know why you’re here?” “I know there’s damned souls all over the world.” “Brilliant deduction Watson.” says The Devil mockingly, & with a white flash he disapears.
Scene 3: An English police investigation is taking place. A young detective walks over & questions a policeman. “Yet another prostitute?” “Yes just like all the others.” They walk over to a covered body & pull off the sheet, revealing the dead body of the woman, and that her throat has been cut. *White flash* A man watches women at a brothel from a distance. “Soon my dear, soon.”
Scene 4: Zeke is at Stone Henge thinking The Devil gave him some clue, but he was wrong. He only sees some modern Druids, & other people, doing everyday things. “Oh well at least I got to see this place” he thinks. He decides to head back to town, it grows dark on the way back. When he finally does arive, he is in a scantilly part of town, with prostitution all over the place. No one but Zeke seems to care, when a woman is heard screaming. He runs to see,... but is to late. He goes into a long allyway, & finds the woman dead. He takes out his gun, & looks around. The murderer appears to have gotten away. Then he springs out of nowhere, pushing Zeke to the floor, & runs. Zeke gets up & looks around, but the man is gone
Scene 5: Another police investigation takes place, this time one of them finds a letter left by the body. He hands it to the young detective who examines it, & the camera shows it. It reads: I take them all to my heart; Mary, Annie, Elizabeth, Catharine; I truely loved them all. now I am bereft, my deeds are bloody... and the ritual of the knife is to no avail, but the quest must go on. Springhill Jack. “So Jack The Ripper is back, or so someone pretends, I’ll say this they know there stuff.” “What is it asks an officer?” “He’s killing women with the same names, how could I not see it before.” A crowd of onlookers is there, & among them is our hero. Now knowing a little more about the string of muders, he decides to go hunt Jack. He takes another look at the young detective at work, then turns to walk away. He hasn’t gotten far when The Devil apears. “Reminds you of someone doesn’t he?” “What?” replies a half confussed Zeke. “A brilliant display of denial, he so obiously is another Zeke Stone in the making.” “There’s only one of me” Zeke cooly replies. “True, I doubt he’s kill suspects, the English are far to sophisticated.” And with that final tormenting comment, he disapears.
Scene 6('Werewolves Of London' by Warren Zevon is playing here): Zeke goes into a bar, he ties on few on, & seemingly blends in. The scene is picture perfect, men jolly all around. They are laughing, some making jokes of women. One man remarkes “the cheap women deserve to be kllled.” While another man talks of how good it is to have prostitutes near by, he even discloses the nearest location, not knowing a detecive is spying in.
The man(from scene 1) with a top hat, is in, a basement working on something mechanical. “You must work, you are my last hope!”
Scene 7: Zeke walks up to the brothel, but decides not to enter. He walks aside & look for a place to stay unnoticed.
Inside a woman gets ready, she looks nervous. Another woman, who looks somewhat more calm walks in. “Marie, Are you ready?” “W, why yes Laura I am.” “It’s ok, I know you have never done this for money before, but you will get used to it. Most men are so gentle, & quick too.” The 1st woman gigles. The other woman continues “And don’t worry about the police, they are to busy to bother us.” she puts her arm around the other woman & they walk out of the room. Soon they walk outside, & walk seperate ways. The camera tilts up showing Zeke in a tree. “Which way to go” he asks himself.
Scene 8: Laura is walking down the street followed by a stealthy Zeke. a man aproaches her, but it is not the killer. gussing she will be fine with her costomer, Zeke runs looking for the other woman.
Marie sees a man, the wrong man & smiles. He aproches her, she leans to him, he looks around, & seeing no one is around, he he puts his arms around her & they walk off. But he is wrong, Zeke is watching. He runs, trying to catch up to them. The woman screams. Zeke runs faster, & gets there in time to see the man holding a chain saw above the silent corpse. He pulls his gun & shoots the mans leg, he falls down. “It’s over Jack, time to go back.” He turns around toward Zeke covering his eyes with his right arm, “I’m afraid not sir, my work is not done.” “Your work? This is work, this is murder!” “Yes it is bloody awful, but I’m afraid I must.” “Not anymore!” says Zeke walking toward him, but out of the darkness jack pulls the chain saw through Zeke’s chest, slicing his rib cage open. Zeke falls down, with his chest glowing with a strange bruise, & The Ripper runs away.
Scene 9: The Devil walks over to an unconscience Zeke, & picks him up by the collar. “EZEKIEL WAKE UP” yells Satan. “Wha?” mumbles a confussed Zeke, “you really got your ass kicked today Mr. Stone. & needless to say, the soul you were after got away, as ussual.” Stone hold his chest, still in pain, though healing up. “Which way did he go?” the Devil laughs & replies “god helps those who help them selves, why should I help you the continuous begger.” “Right.” says Zeke with a sacastic voice. “Oh don’t feel bad that I won’t help you out, I don’t even help myself out,... heck, I have others do that for me.”
Scene 10: Laura returns home, but doesn’t see Marie. She goes to a lady & asks “have you seen Marie?” She exlains that she never came back. And Laura begins to wonder ‘did she run away, did she get hurt?’
Scene 11: The police investigate another scene, only this time, they found the absolute horror from the chain saw masacre. The young detective, is taking notes, & Stone watches. He goes & adds more to a stack in his car. When he walks away, Zeke aproaches the car, & takes some papers. An officer notices him, & pulling his gun says “freeze.” Zeke stops, & chuckles,... ”You’ll just have to shoot me.” The officer’s jaw drops, then Zeke takes off running. He cannot fire, cause of the civilians. He starts running after Zeke, but is no match, for Zeke is not living & needs no air.
Scene 12 (Please note I invision ‘Do It Again’ by Steely Dan to be playing here): Laura is walking down the street, showing Marie’s picture to people, the ones who give her the time that is. Everyone just nods there heads. She continues walking, & the street gets deserted. She gets scared & looks around,... but no one is around. Except Jack, who covers her mouth & pulls her into an alley. she strugles to get away from him, but she can’t. “Stop struggling, I won’t hurt you,... yet.” He drags her further back, to where his chain saw is. He reaches for it, but Zeke bashes a trash can on his head, so he falls down. “RUN” he yells at the woman, & she does. Jack kicks Zeke’s leg & he falls too. both are on the floor racing to get up, Zeke wins, but Jack tackles him. He holds Zeke with one hand & starts punching him with the other. “I win!” exclaims Jack “Perhaps I will look to see what’s inside you.” “You don’t hate these women, What are you really after?” “I needed to find out what makes us live, not just what makes the body work, but why & how.” “The soul? You cut people open for the sou!?” “I needed to know, now I do,... it matters not what you think, your time is up” says The ripper grabbing the chain saw. “A marvalous invention, don’t you think?” But Zeke grabs his gun, & the only reply he gives is a bullet in jack’s right eye. He drops the chain saw, & it just misses hitting Zeke. He then shoots out the left eye, & The ripper is sucked back to hell. Zeke begins walking away, when he sees the woman. “I thought I told you to run?” “Sorry, I, I just, I don’t know why I didn’t.” She pulls out the picture of Marie. “Have you seen her?” I’m sorry...” He says. Though he didn’t finish the sentence, she knows what he was about to say, & starts crying. “It’s my fault, had I followed her & not you last night,... she’d still be alive.” “N, no” she says. “Because of you, it’s over. I don’t know what I just saw, but I know it’s over. Thanks to you!” “Yeah that’s justice” Zeke says. He turns away from her & continues “how many people must die, before the killer is brought to justice?” Slowly he walks away.
