Strange Tales from Appalachia (2017) - full transcript

Appalachian filmmakers join together to produce three horrifying, suspenseful, and strange tales. In "Pretty Girl", a young woman escapes a maniac kidnapper by fleeing into the Appalachian ...

Do you even know how we're gonna get back?


You remember?


That's what I'm saying - none of us remember!

You know...

That's exactly what he's been doing!

Boom - yes!

I got it - I know he'd do it.

I don't know she could be dead for all
we know it's just -

Hey, hey, all right

everything's okay.

My name
is Matt, this is Grant and Austin.

Here's the situation,

last night, you stumbled
into our campsite, not saying anything

and not wearing anything.

We just covered
you up right there by the fire where you

fell and we've just been waiting for you
to come to

Are you hurt?

What's your name?


Sorry what was

It's okay I- I'm sorry I just didn't hear you.

What is it?


Okay, Valorie,
we're just letting you know what we know

Right. We're just trying to help you we
want to make sure that you're okay.

What were you doing out here last night?

Look, this is a weird situation for -

I don't know.

That's okay. That's fine.


No. No it's not fine.

Where am I?

We're on the south side of
Roan Mountain.


It's in Mitchell County -

No, I know where that is
but doesn't make any fucking sense. I -

I wasn't -

I wasn't coming here.

I was-

We weren't there long -

Where did you go?

I don't remember leaving.

What do you remember then?

Nothing probably. Dude this just sounds like she got drunk with her friends and then

now they're just pulling some prank -

Fuck you! Okay- I don't do that!

Okay I'm just

saying that you might have had too much.
I mean it happens -

You don't know me!

I wouldn't have blacked out!

Okay but you
you keep saying you don't remember well

I mean I'm sorry but that's what too
much alcohol does to you, you black out

So why did I end up in the fucking woods? I don't know!

That's what we're trying to figure out Valerie! Dude!


Look, this is very confusing for all of
us, okay, but we're gonna be able to

figure things out a lot faster if we all
just just stay calm.


I'm sorry.

Some guy came up to me at the bar

started talking to me.

All right. Did you know him?

I need to go home.

Yeah I mean that's
that's what we were talking about before

you woke up but we weren't sure if we
should call the police -

No don't call the police.

Okay, okay I mean I was gonna say or
like a park ranger or something maybe I

mean someone that could get you off this
mountain - No I don't want anyone else

involved this is too much I -

You want to go home I'm sorry you can't just

click your heels and -

Look, that's the only way.

Look, I'm gonna go up to the fork in the

path I got service up there I'm gonna
call a park ranger

come back here we'll walk you to the service road

and- and he'll get you home.


we're gonna take care of you.

I'll come back as soon as I
can guys

Here, I'm sure you could use some of this.

Thank you.

I'm sure you're hungry too so
there you go.

Well, uh, I guess I'm gonna go get some

Austin are you cool to chill here?

Yeah, I'm ok.


Do you want some clothes?

That's probably a rhetorical question huh? D'uh Austin.

You could probably wear some of mine-

kind of a small guy

These shouldn't be too big on you.

Thank you.

Do you wanna - Should I just -

I'll just, uh, I'll be over here -

facing that way.

Why are you laughing?

I'm sorry I'm just uh this whole
situation is it's bizarre-

kind of caught me, us, by surprise I guess.

Trust me I know.

I'm sorry for getting upset earlier

I, uh,

I wanted to help you. I did, but, you were
so distant.

it was like you were mortified but you didn't know why

and when I couldn't help,

made me feel the same way.

Everything alright in there?

You okay?


I'm fine.

I know it's selfish and I just couldn't
be in that state of mind

I've been there before in that darkness

where do you go

when your consciousness fails you you
know what I'm saying? It, it's like you're

unknowingly waiting and waiting for

That's the weirdest part

you don't even know what you're waiting
for or that you're even waiting at all.

Makes everything so visceral

It's frightening.

That's, uh, that's why I don't drink anymore.

okay I'm uh I'm gonna stand up now

surely you're -


Okay so this should be
enough for now but I can go back and get more later.

Where's the girl?

She's out there.

Why the fuck is she out there?

What did you do? Oh I didn't do shit!

I gave her some of my clothes.

You acted like a pervy dick didn't you? No! Dude, this girl cannot handle that!

No, I, I was just casually talking to her and trying to relate and shit that usually works

I didn't know she was gonna run away!

Jesus Christ, well, we have to get her!

She cannot be out there alone-

she could get lost or worse.

Okay let's go

Let's? As in 'let us'?


We didn't lose her or let her go

Dude, shut the fuck up and

come and help me find her before
something happens.

I can't have that on my conscience.




Hey, hey it's okay

It's okay, Valorie it's okay! It's us Grant and Austin.

Valorie, I really don't feel that you should-

I was raped.

I can feel, I can feel everything this is real it's not going away

Please don't!

Right, I'm so sorry.

That's okay Grant.

Get me out of here.

I want to go now.

We'll get you out of here I mean as long

as you don't take for the hills again.

What did you think you were gonna do

conquer the mountain? Okay I was scared I wasn't thinking. I just kept thinking he was out there

even when I kept running I just couldn't get away from that thought.

Well he'd better not be, if he knows what's
best for him!

And that's the truth.

Look we are going to make sure that

you're safe as long as you stay with us. Ok?

Matthews probably been waiting on us
we're running out of time and we still have

to get our bags and get you to the
service road

Why can't we go now?

Well your little stunt didn't actually leave
us enough time to leave a note.

Look don't worry.

We'll get help soon enough.

You okay?

You know, for someone who has been in your situation

you're really speeding through these
woods. I mean don't get me wrong I

understand but I'm a smoker.

That's inappropriate, my fault.

Hey, is everything okay?

He didn't mean what he said- No, its...

it's just, how did I let myself get here

Oh Oh easy there


Let's uh, take a look.

Valorie this really doesn't look very

No, none of this looks good it's

actually pretty fucked up.

May I?

What the fuck are you gonna do? Make it better?

I need to see how much flexibility you have, if it's a severe sprain or worse you really need to take it easy.

Take it easy? I need to take it
easy? Would that be easier for you two?

If I took it easy?

I'm fine.

Let's go.

Fuck, oh!

Fuck him, fuck this place, I wish he would have killed me instead of

leaving me here like some goddamn
helpless whore!

Valorie look, I promise everything will be okay soon enough



None of this is okay.

Everything that I had, everything that I have become is left here in these stupid woods!

We're gonna get you home


Then what?

You two get to rest assured knowing you helped out some poor stranded girl but me, I get to be exactly

what I tried so hard not to be.

A victim.

Valorie, none of this is your fault.

I don't need your sympathy, I don't need your help


Hey what's that?

It's a campsite.

I didn't think people could camp on this
side of the mountain.

Well, you're not supposed to.

Guys let me go, I'm fine.

What is this?

These are my clothes?

Well this fire is still pretty fresh so

I'm guessing he could be back at any moment.

Austin I really think that we

Hey what are those?

I really don't think you should see these And you fucking should?

Poor girl.

Fuck you.

I'm not your trophy.

look I don't mean to rush you, but we
probably should- Yeah...

We should get out of here.

Yeah that's right, this maniac,
he's probably out here still.

So is Matthew.

Shit! Matty? Matty? Oh there you are.


Yes, me. I had thought you wouldn't remember me.

I thought you moved on one of these, boys. But

since I can't be forgotten...

You piece of shit, Grant-

No no no please please please let's not do that.

I understand that you're agitated
and I sympathize I do but I'd like to

keep things more orderly less graphic. So...
right to the point at hand

I have something, someone, that you want
and you have something of mine I want.

Fuck you dude, she doesn't belong to you!

Yes, yes she does. Yes she does.

Now I understand the two of you're
acting out some instinct to protect the

female from the situation but what I
think you're failing to realize is this,

I will slice your friends fucking throat

and I will watch the blood pour out.

And I will repeat that process two more
times. So please, try to think rationally.

Grant what do we do?

I don't know man!


No, no you can't!

He raped me and left me to die!

Rape is such a harsh word.

Hey let's let's just forget about all this.

No, no, no no no no no no!

Shut up!

That is not how this works!

I am happy to let you all go but she is

not leaving with you.

Whatever fuck it, I'm tired of dealing with
your people, you should have picked a better campsite!


Okay okay!

Good, good good good.

I was starting to think the two of you
were really fucking stupid.


I'm sorry! No he's gonna kill me!

I'm sorry I don't know what else to do

Austin, Austin, you won't, you won't, you can't do this.

He's our friend! We have no choice!

You said you were gonna protect me, you can't do this, no, no!

Well, there she goes!

Don't worry, she won't get away.

Oh... where are you going beautiful?

Oh I see, that way?

What a shame,

you almost made it.

Isn't this better? I think so.
Happy couple together again.

[heartbeat thumping

I don't think either of us is in the
mood for another chase.

I gotta say I'm surprised by such desperation to get
away, I mean,

was I really that bad?

I thought you and I had quite the connection before.

There is something about you that
excites me my dear


How did a guy like me, end up with such a pretty girl?


that reminds me


where are they?

What do you mean?

Don't do that

I'm not angry.

In, in fact I'm glad, I'm glad
you saw them.

I mean, what did you think?

Quite breathtaking right?

What are you doing?

We are leaving. Wha-

Stop taking me for a fucking fool!

I know you saw the pictures, I know you
were here

and, and I assume those two fuckwits were
with you

and now they're out there

coming up with some half-assed save the
princess scenario so our time in the

woods is over.

Oh, fucking bitch!




that's better behavior.


You're right.

I'll learn.

But maybe you can teach me

I like the idea of you taking control of


You don't think I remember that

The way you charmed your way get me out of the
bar into the car all the way out here I

I wasn't as drugged as you thought I was.

I was just weak to your powerful constrains.

The control it was


It was


I want you to do it to me again



If that's what you want.

That's what you're gonna get!


We're gonna get you out.

Come on!

Okay I'm sorry do you mind if we go over
this one more time Valorie?

Yes, I do mind.

Okay, I have told you everything you need to
know I told you at the station I told

you on the phone and now I find myself
hours later telling you here look I

Look I understand it's a very

sensitive situation for you to be in.

I'm just trying to make sense of the things that I've been told.

Could you do it someplace else?

Unfortunately no.


this is far too coincidental you have to know there

have been other women in this area
recently who have come forward with a

very very similar narrative to what
you've told me okay so you say these

three guys, uh,

Grant, Austin, Matthew right?

Okay they find you in the woods

after the incident

they give you clothes
they give you food they give you water

they escort you to the hospital and then
they just leave you they just drop you off?

No, no not exactly-

I have a nurse that
says that you were alone-

Yes I was alone but

I was alive and it's because of those

I'm sorry,

just trying to cover all bases

Well don't worry about that okay?

I'm the victim

I say when it's over.

No more investigation, no
more questions especially about those three.

I'm able to have a life again because of them.

...just go
with your your usual dark-haired

chestnut-eyed looking girls Well I don't see any of them either,

it's a little slim pickings out today Well you're the one who wanted to come to the park.

Well nice girls are at the park.

Oh what about her?

No, she's, she's, well she's blonde and I

don't like blondes they're annoying.

Yeah they're too mouthy. Mouthy me likey...

Well, what you likey does not matter because it's not your fucking turn anymore!

Then fucking pick

someone or we'll pick for you.

No no no,
that's not how the game works


You got to pick yours I got to take

let him pick his.


I got it.

Who is it?


This one's gonna be fun!

I'm giving you to the count of three to
give me a sign, or I'm g oing back there

and snatching your ghostly ass out of
that Void myself!

Did you just see that?

That was an orb that just went
cross me!

you know the ghost man and

I'm diving right in!

People call me, Ghost Man!

I used to be scared of the dark but now

I fight the dark!

One man, one ghost!

Cause this is just between me and you,

this is between the ghost and the ghost

I am the Ghost Man - Hello?

What's up puddin' cup?

Don't call me that.

Whoa whoa whoa, did I just catch somebody
admiring her big bro on basic cable

Public access. Ahh, admit it, that's
without a doubt the best showmanship

you've ever seen in your life! It's
three in the morning.


I need you to shoot for me tomorrow,
well, later on today around noon.

I can't I'm filling out job applications
all day-

We're talking season finale here!

The only way we make millions down
the line is if we make the greatest

piece of paranormal television in

Grant Wilson, Jason Hawes, Zack Bagans, Jackie Washington, and

the Ghost Man!

Okay fine but after

this I have to find a real job- after
this you won't have to!


Call me ghost man.

I am never calling you ghost man
I'll see you tomorrow.

Today, later today,

Ghost Man out

Get up grandma,
we got to get goin'!

How, how did you get in?

Had keys made just in case. Here put that on.

I know you're welcome.


we have to get going, I mean I'm jacked, clacked and ready to rat-a-tat-tat-

What's up?


I know that look, that is the same look I give myself
every single morning when I look into the mirror.

That's the look of someone
who's been seeing things


You know,


Have you been seeing them?


But you
would tell me if you have right?


Because that would be the greatest show

No! Listen, Dex, leaky pipes and mice in
the ceiling are actually leaky pipes and mice!

You wouldn't even be interested,
I promise.


you would tell me if you have right?

Let's go.

Three years ago in this location a giant
sinkhole 300-

again one more time one more time.

April 25th 2012 a day that
will live in infamy

a ginormous sinkole 400 feet deep opened
up and swallowed six young children into a

deep abyss never to be seen again.

Now the locals call this a portal to

Hell and all I know is I'm diving right

and today we're with the property

manager Mr. Peter Barrett. Mr. Barrett

to man vs. ghost!

Thank you.

You're welcome Peter. Now we have spoken
to a lot of the local residents who

claim they have seen ghostly childlike
apparitions in this very hallway.

Yeah, it's been a while since I've heard

you know last folks had called me out
here claims that they saw some movement

right over here in these windows.

You know kind of kind of low down,

ya know, just creeping along, you know, kind of
like they was kids


just ended up being this

cute little tabby cat

and, uh,

that's when we met.

Brought her in, named her Deb, she sleeps with me
every night now

Just let us in.

You got it partner.

Tonight's the night ladies and gentlemen
where I enter the most haunted most

dangerous location ever investigated in
the history of Man vs. Ghost.

This is where I leave my production crew behind
this is where I go one-on-one. This...

is where it becomes Man vs. Ghost.

Have a good time.

Cut! Cut, cut - What the hell was that?



Nothing, just never mind we've got
it from here

Okay, good luck on your ghost adventure.


Little help?

Well I'm here all night,

but Jackie do me
a favor. This time, please have the

Ghost Van back promptly at 7:00,

I do need a ride.

Do I have to keep the magnet on?

Why would you even ask me that?


If you actually are seeing something
which I don't believe you are,

but if you are,

take this, and try to capture it on video
I mean it would help to show out a lot.

Ghosts don't exist.

But if they do exist it
makes sense that they would follow the

sister of the greatest ghost hunter alive!

See ya.

Well be safe

It is 3:00 in the morning-

You sound stressed, you didn't just have a paranormal

experience did you?

What is it?

Cause you should tell me if you did-

What is it?

The school's a bust, not even a damn
stray cat I mean the ghost man can

stretch a show but even I've got my


I made some moves and I've

scored the interview of a lifetime,

are you ready for this?

Dr. Joseph Webb!

Wow the Dr. Webb...

Now I know you don't
keep up with the world of paranormal

science but this is Season Finale
material here!

I need you on this one sis.

Okay fine I'll help, you but if I
keep helping you,

I'm the one that's gonna end up needing help.

I'll take it

but here's the thing,

the only time Dr. Webb can fit me in his
schedule is 7:00 a.m. and it's a

three-hour drive so can you come pick me
up right about now?

Fine I I can't sleep anyways-


are you having a paranormal experience right now?

Bye Dex.

Wait wait!

Wake up!


Call me Ghost Man.

I'm not calling you Ghost Man!

Fine, just tell me what's going on.

I just haven't been getting much sleep is all




Fine, okay fine...

Do you think that they follow us home?


they don't follow me they don't follow you.

Reality of the situation is we just got one more
episode to finish after we finish that

episode then we finish the entire season
then we take that finished season sell

it to the Travel Channel and then with
all that money you can buy five

bodyguards to watch you freaking sleep
at night.

Do you even know who lived in

your apartment before you?


it could be the damn Zodiac killer for all we know.

Is he even dead yet?

When the Ghost Man goes out he needs to
know everything there is to know about

the paranormal sciences so I go out and
find the best I find the smartest I find

sometimes the craziest but the point is
I find the best so tonight to take this

journey into that dark void with me is
the man whose radical new theory

The Ripple Effect is taking the paranormal
world by storm.

Dr. Joseph Webb.


Thank you,

and welcome to Man vs. Ghost.

Doctor, uh,

Dr. Webb will you explain your radical new theory.

Dr. Webb I mean-

Well, well, uh,

people have energy or rather energy has people.

Every person in this universe has
a specific set of energy that suggests a

lot about their personality or past

and possibly their future.

Your energy for example is...





I'm not surprised about that because...

most of the apparitions
I've encountered over the years

think I'm some sort of royalty.


well anyway when a person loses a part of

themselves to some sort of trauma they
lose part of their energy as well


Yeah! Yes you you are so



um, imprinting! Well for your viewers out
there imprinting is what many refer to

as the root cause to what the layman
would refer to as a haunting.

According to my ripple effect theory when a person
imprints on their surroundings it not

only affects the future but also...


So you're saying that a haunting

can actually take place before the
actual event that caused a haunting


If I throw a pebble in a

does it not ripple backwards as well as

So if I'm hearing you correctly

you're saying that I could meet my
future self in some sort of this ghost echo?


but beware if you do,

because it means something terrible is going to happen.

Something you, you, you can't
possibly avoid because it's already

happened in the future,

and you're merely observing an echo.


is awesome!

I mean take a second think about it Ghost
Man versus Ghost Man!

Battle of the century!

And according to Dr. Webb that is actually possible!

Thank you Doctor Webb,
have you been

absolutely brilliant!

Thank you Dr. Webb.


You don't believe me, I could tell
you don't.

What, what if everything I said is true,

what, what if

everything I've said today is true, and you just ignore it?

What if you could save a human life
because of my theory but no you just

don't want to think about it I want you
to think about it I want you to believe!

What was that about?

Nothing just let's get going

Grab the gear!

Let's let the doctor get some rest
sis come on.

Come on!

I'm going to Sensabaugh Tunnel tomorrow for the final investigation-



I said I'm going to the Sensabaugh Tunnel tomorrow
for the final investigation now are you

gonna shoot the intro?

He was looking at
me- He wasn't looking at you I told him

to say that at the end just to freak the
audience out.



Can't sleep anyways-



what what if everything I said is
true what what if everything I've said

today is true you just ignore it.
What if you could save a human life

because of my theory but no you just
don't want to think about I want you to

think about it I want you to believe

Wake up!

whoa whoa it's me sis your big

I must have passed out.


I did some digging

no violent crimes whatsoever

have been committed near or even around
your building

that I woke up and there was someone
standing in my door frame

common thing to see but the blood-

Spontaneous ectoplasmic generation?

I don't know...

talk about something.

I...uh...was never very good small talk.

Great, I'm trapped in a room with a boring guy.

Okay Chatty Cathy, umm,

what do you do like for a job or whatever.

Uh, I'm an Account Manager
for a cell phone company.


Okay well that sounds shitty.


it is, actually.

How long you been doing that?

Um, I don't know, like three years.

That's two years longer than I've ever held any jobs.

Why stay if you don't like it?

I don't know I
mean it's what you do, right?

I mean sometimes I think I do it just to

be around people

I don't, uh,

exactly get out

as much


I mean
I used to. I used to have friends that went places.

but somewhere along the line I just kind of...



I don't know I just

of stopped

having anything to talk about.

I mean everything was fine

pretty much,

I just

didn't really have anything else to say.

you know friends or



I don't know when that happened.

I don't
know when

I stopped knowing how to be around people.

Like I stopped being me.

I just

kind of


I just kinda let myself get lost in the shuffle.

Well that's your thing isn't it?

I mean it's fucking obvious.

What's obvious?

You just gave up again,

right now.

I mean listen to yourself you pussy you

just gave that entire 'woe is me' speech
in past tense

like like that's it that's my life.

Well you know what Elliot?

like a shitty life and I'm sorry but it's not mine.

I have lots of friends

I love my life and I love my family.

I'm sorry but I'm not just gonna sit here
feel sorry for myself.

Jeez, why are you getting so angry?

I'm sorry if I get

listening to your self-defeating

I'm not dead yet so I'm sorry

if I don't join your little pity party.

want to survive this

and I want to get

the fuck out of here! You can't get out!

What part of that do not get?

Hey we're not doing that! I'm not doing
this all right? What is the fucking for?

Elliot what is the fucking knife for?


they want us to kill each other.

What do you mean?

It doesn't matter cause I'm not doing it!

Let us out!

Hey! How do you fucking know that!

I just do, alright?

Come on, open up please!

I'm not... I don't want to
do this!

I'm sorry Elliot.


Please, stop!


Please, you don't have to do this.

Oh I don't want to.

but I think I have to. No!

No, no!




I want to thank you.


I don't know
why you attacked me

I didn't think

people would sacrifice others like that,
not really.

But I get it now.

You didn't attack me

because you wanted
to kill me

but because you wanted to live.

I can't blame you.

For a long time

live my life

on social media.

Looking at

pictures of mountains but

never climbing

The truth is

I put myself in this room.

long before anyone else did.

I refused to do that now

I am going to survive

I want to live.

I want to see those mountains up close I
want to have conversations with people

that don't involve likes replies or
comments passed off as insight

I want

to live.

And I know whoever comes through that
door is gonna want to to take it all away from me.

I will be a wave breaking against rocks
on the seashore

I will move through them


And no matter what

I will earn my life.

Is he...

talking to himself?

Wait what?

Is he talking to himself, the gingery guy?

Oh yeah.

Does he do that a lot?

Yeah I mean
wouldn't you?

Do you ever like

feel bad for these people?




I feel like I'm an instrument

in the perpetuation of inhumane cruelty
passed off as entertainment and sport.

But then I just go get my paycheck on

go get shithouse moused at Hooters

By Sunday I forget all about these me these mother fuckers.


Get my out of here!

Now, I'm done!

I'm done! Get me out of here!

What the hell is going on! Get me out of here!

You have had a hell of a day.

No no,

don't get up.

I gotta tell you,

you actually made it a lot farther than I would have


Allow me.



You are a spicy little spit fuck.


all good things

must come to an end.

Nothing personal.

Now smile for the camera.


Holy shit!

That was awesome!

I mean you


you're just obliterated that big bastard.

I mean I wished it would
have taken a little bit longer but shit.


come on man
stand up.

No? I mean

Deathmatch Worldwide and i'm just so proud-

Proud to-

Would someone please shut the fucking Mongoloid up!

Thank you.

I...what's going on?

Well that's
what I've been trying to tell you see

these past couple of fights they've been
a part of our first ever tournament and

you, you fucking won, man and honestly I
gotta say I didn't expect it to be one

of our own homegrown talents I mean yeah
guys coming in from from all over for

this thing and you fucking won man!

Fucking King of the Deathmatch!

Elliot 'Nails' O'Neill, do you like that that's
what we've been calling you online

Listen man you've been instrumental, just
fuckin' instrumental in all of our

success and all of my success I mean
we've got more fuckin subscribers than

YouTube I mean some people get on there
just so they can rant about how horrible

it all is but most people fuckin love it
and they fucking love you,

man, like you're you're famous now at
Rocky Balboa like fucking the Italian

stallion famous.

So that's why I

want to
offer you

a job.


Yeah man a job see we're getting
our own Network next month it's a whole

big thing doesn't matter and I want you
on our flagship show as my co-anchor

Go fuck yourself.

You kidnapped me

you trapped me in here


now you want me to be on your little show?


fuck yes

fuck yes I do.

How dare you

how fucking dare you!

I give you the opportunity of a fucking lifetime and
you spit my fucking face

Oh for what for some fucking moral high

you'd rather be taken out back behind a
fucking shed and shot?

Oh what you gonna do Elliot huh? you get
mad you gonna lunge at me you gonna kill

me with your bare hands and prove how
much of a big strong man you are and

then what huh you gonna go back to the
shitty little life that you had before

working some fucking temp job living in
your parents goddamn basement?

I offered you Millions and you have the fucking
audacity to look down at me through your

fucking broken nose?

no no no no no do
you know me people would fucking kill to

be where you are right now to have the
opportunity that I have fucking given

you, you self-righteous little fuck!

Do you know how many fucking starving and homeless
people I could get in here that wouldn't

even better fucking eyelash?

Elliot everybody in this world gets

fucked by somebody else

I mean privileged people are the only

ones that have ever been Noble.

That leaves the rest of us to claw and

scratch and fucking bleed for anything
that we can get our fucking hands on.

So go ahead Elliot you sit and your
fucking ivory tower and pretend that

there's good guys in the world and that
you're fucking one of them.

That just means that they haven't decided to come
and fucking take it from you yet

Did you eve consider, Elliot, why no one ever
came to shut me down?

I mean it's better to have all eyes on this than looking
around at the world asking so many

questions about why it's so fucked up!

You know

they say the the object of war
is peace.

They don't ever talk about is how the real objective of war

is to
make money.

Look, Elliot I have made

my money off of your wars.

Don't you think
it's time you've got your peace?

"Strangler" Tyler Lynch. Champ, what kind of

Elliot 'Nails' O'Neil!

Hey Champ!

Oh, um, sorry,

count out the little guy I mean who

the first-ever deathmatch champion.
