Part One

 



EXT. ATLANTIC OCEAN (GIVING IN BY LINKIN PARK)

ATLANTIC OCEAN… OFF THE COAST OF MIAMI

We travel through the water as we come upon a small fishing boat “The Seagrass”. The radio BOOMS the song Giving In by Linkin Park. Teenagers party on the boat, drinking beer, having fun. We see the wind pick up speed. KYLE, 19 years old, surfer guy, holds a video camera looking around.

EXT. SEAGRASS

POV. VIDEO CAMERA
We see through the video camera. It is pointed at JAMAL, 19 years old, and his girlfriend, TERESA, dancing to the music. Jamal looks into the camera

JAMAL
Hey, get that stupid thing out of my face…

KYLE (O.S.)
Wo relax, just having a little fun dude.

JAMAL
Annoy somebody else for a change…

Kyle aims the video camera towards Teresa’s ass.

KYLE (O.S.)
Lookin’ great, Teresa; a little more bounce in the step though…

Teresa stops moving.

EXT. SEAGRASS

Jamal YANKS the camera out of Kyle’s hand. GWEN, 18 years old, blonde cheerleader type laughs, leaning against the boat.

KYLE
Hey!!! Come on man, it was finally getting good for a change.

Jamal holds up the camera

JAMAL
This, this is mine.

Kyle laughs and shakes his head no

KYLE
Douche bag.

The ship suddenly rocks hard back and forth. They struggle to stay on. Teresa looks towards Jamal, he nods. Gwen looks towards Kyle, afraid.

JAMAL
I thought you said the weather was going to be good?!

KYLE
I did!

JAMAL
Yeah, so mind telling me what the heck is goin’ on?

Kyle looks around. SPLASH! The boat is rocked again.

KYLE
What the hell!

GWEN
This is totally not cool.

Kyle climbs up to the top of the control deck and looks out.

KYLE
Um… you probably might want to come up here and take a look at this.

Jamal frowns and climbs up. He looks towards Kyle.

JAMAL
What is it?

Kyle nods towards the water, the rising waves coming right towards them! The radio begins to fade to STATIC. We hear a feminine singing voice, a harmonious tune. Eerie. Enchanting. Mesmerizing. Kyle smiles as he walks further and further along the upper deck. The waves approach them at a more rapid pace. Jamal turns Kyle around.

JAMAL
We have to get out of here!!!

Kyle shakes his head no and grins, almost as though lost in a trance.

KYLE
No. She’s coming.

Jamal looks out towards the waves and back towards Kyle.

JAMAL
Alright, fine you stay here. I’ll go save our asses.

Jamal turns around to leave. Kyle GRABS his arm and spins him around.

JAMAL
Man, what’s your problem!!!

KYLE
I love her.

Jamal struggles to get free. He looks into the wave and for a second we see a female figure coming out of it, composed completely of water! This is a SIREN. The Siren holds out her hand and beckons for Kyle to join her.

KYLE
She wants me.

Kyle lets go of Jamal and walks further towards the edge and stares up as the waves approach him. The Siren reaches out and GRABS him. Jamal watches, horrified.

JAMAL
Now that’s messed up.

THUMP! Kyle drops back down. Eyes open. Pale skin. Gurgling water and blood. Jamal backs away.

JAMAL
What the hell?!

TERESA
Hey, baby what is going on up there?

JAMAL
Nothing, it’s…

The waves SPLASH over the Seagrass, drowning the boat under its currents. The waves stop. Everything is calm, tranquil. We PAN OVER the boat, everyone is dead.



SUPERNATURAL: SIREN

EXT. MIAMI- BEACH (SURFIN USA BY THE BEACH BOYS)

TWO WEEKS LATER...
We open to surfers controlling the living waves. On the beach, hot teenage girls wearing bikinis pass by the screen. Young couples sit along the sand. Next to the beach is a news stand.

SAM (O.S.)
So, you still didn't tell me what we are doing…

We track Sam and Dean walking along the beach.

SAM (CONT’D)
In Miami.

Dean stops and picks up a tabloid.

DEAN
This.

SAM
We came because of an article in the tabloids? Dean, you know as well as I do- most of that stuff is made up for entertainment purposes.

DEAN
Yeah, well it’s not the infamous Bat Boy I’m interested in.

Dean flips the tabloid to an article titled LOST AT SEA.

DEAN
A couple of days ago, a fishing boat that was supposedly lost was found. All of the crew was on the ship: Dead.

SAM
I still don’t see how…

DEAN
All died of the exact same thing. They drowned to death. Salt water in their lungs. Now tell me, how on earth could they all have drowned to death on seemingly dry land?

Sam nods

SAM
So, what do you think caused it?

DEAN
Sirens.

SAM
Sirens? I thought that was just a legend.

DEAN
Yeah, well it’s not. Sirens exist and have existed for many years.

Sam nods

SAM
According to legends, Sirens attack ships approaching their island of Sirenum scopuli.

DEAN
Yeah, but Odysseus and Jason and the Argonauts aside, sailors have reported seeing strange looking feminine forms in the water for years now; especially in and around the region of the Atlantic Ocean just off of Miami.

Sam nods

DEAN
Through the power of their voice alone, they’re able to draw men to its will, towards their deaths. (sarcastic) Not that much different from real life, actually.

Sam laughs and nods

SAM
Dean, for how long have you been 'hunting' this thing?

Dean thinks about it and shrugs.

DEAN
A while now, figured it was finally time for us to come down here and check it out for ourselves.

Sam nods okay.

SAM
So, how are we going to find this thing?

Dean shrugs

DEAN
Honestly? I don’t know. But, I arranged a meeting with a local Miami University professor. Hopefully he can clear everything up.

Dean and Sam climb up the steps towards the Metro station above.

INT. METRO STATION- MAIN

Dean stops at the ticket booth.

DEAN
Two tickets.

The tickets come through and Dean takes them.

INT. METRO STATION- DEPARTING PLATFORM

Dean and Sam wait along the departing platform.

INT. METRO STATION- MAIN

HAYLEY COLLINS runs through the ticket register, ignoring the security guards.

SECURITY GUARD
Excuse me miss, you can’t go through there!

INT. METRO STATION- DEPARTING PLATFORM

Dean checks his watch.

DEAN
Should be here any second now Hayley runs through the deporting deck and bumps into Sam, she almost trips. Sam reaches out and helps her.

SAM
Hey.

Haley looks back towards Sam, flips her hair back and smiles

HAYLEY
Hey…

SAM
You in a hurry?

HAYLEY
Huh? Oh, yeah…

Sam nods and extends his hand

SAM
I’m Sam.

HAYLEY
Hayley.

SAM
Well, great meeting you Hayley.

(beat)

So, you live around here or?

Hayley nods

HAYLEY
Yeah, you?

Sam shrugs

SAM
Just passing through.

The monorail train arrives. Dean clears his throat.

DEAN
Come on Sam, its here. Time to go.

Sam nods

SAM
Well, it was good meeting you.

Sam and Dean approach the monorail train.

HAYLEY
No!!! Wait, stop!

Sam and Dean turn around, surprised.

HAYLEY
Don’t get on.

Sam approaches her

SAM
Why? What is it?

Hayley’s eyes dart and back. Not knowing what to say, who would believe her.

HAYLEY
The… train, it’s going to crash.



Dean snickers

DEAN
What?

HAYLEY
It’s s going to crash, it’s going to collide. Please just don’t get on.

DEAN
This isn’t your way of saying you want a phone number right? Because we can just give it to you and make it on time, we have an important…

Hayley shakes her head no startled, Sam looks towards Dean and frowns. He comforts Hayley.

SAM
Hey, everything will be ok.

Hayley nods, holding onto Sam. Dean watches, grins- was he seeing this right? His brother becoming a…

HAYLEY
Please, don’t get on.

Sam looks into her eyes.

SAM
We won’t.

Dean frowns, he looks back towards the monorail train as it departs.

DEAN
Man!!!

(beat) I’m telling you, nothing is going to happen.

CRASH!!!! ERRING! We hear the rails SCREECHING. People screaming. Dean looks towards Sam, mouth agape- surprised. He looks towards Hayley, she also looks surprised; even more so, terrified. They run off.

INT. MONORAIL TRAIN- PASSENGER DECK

Inside we see people screaming, panicked. Some of the passengers have been seriously injured in the crash. We quickly TRAVEL BACK through the windows and out into…

EXT. METRO STATION

Dean, Sam and Hayley join the observers of the scene. They stare up towards the monorail.

POV. DEAN
We look up towards the collision. Two trains against each other at a distorted angle. Each leaning over and on the verge of tipping over and back out onto the street! People look out the window screaming.

EXT. METRO STATION

Dean gulps. He looks towards Sam, Sam nods. Hayley stares into space. Dean clears his throat.

DEAN
You told us the train was going to crash- how did you know?

HAYLEY
I, I don’t know. I… I saw it.

Dean shakes his head no, not believing her.

DEAN
You said that the train was going to crash. How did you know that?

HAYLEY
I told you, I don’t know!!!! This, everything is all knew to me.



Dean looks towards Sam, he frowns. Sam shrugs. Dean laughs and shakes his head yes. Of course Sam would take her side, as he thought earlier. Somewhere in the time they first met Hayley, Sam became her “boy toy” to tote around. Dean looks up towards the train. Something obviously wasn’t right about this.
