In the Dark: Cliché: The Movie

Eric D. Snider

(Nighttime. The woods. A man and woman walk quietly, very frightened. Suddenly the man speaks.)

"Did you hear something?"

(Dramatic movie music begins. The same guy who does the voice-overs for all movie previews speaks as scenes from the film are shown in rapid-cut fashion.)

In a world…

"You're crazy! It'll never work!" "That's a chance we've got to take!"

…where heroes triumph and brave men rise…

"Leave me! Save yourself!" "I won't let you go!" "You'll never get away with this!"

…one man…

"You have no idea what you're dealing with!" "I've got a bad feeling about this." "Flattery will get you nowhere."

…must rise above the rest.

"Make us proud, son." "What do you want from us?!" "Give me back my son!" "There's been another murder."

From director Frank Jackenheimer…

"You can't fire me, I quit!" "That's crazy — just crazy enough to work." "You'll never take me alive!" "Hang on! Don't let go!"

…it was the chance of a lifetime in a lifetime full of chance…

"It's quiet…a little too quiet." "What was that?!"

…but no one could predict:

"We've got company!" "Get out of there!" "You don't wanna get on my bad side."

…"Cliché." (Intense movie noise.)

"It's personal this time." "I'm gettin' too old for this." "What's that supposed to mean?!" "You can't handle the truth!" "Can't you see what's happening?" "You can't do this to me!" "I just did."

"Cliché: The Movie." You've seen it all before…but never like this.

"Kill them all." "Noooooooooooo!"

In theaters this fall.
