[windmill squeaking]

[crickets chirping]

[rocking chair creaking]

[knock on door]

Oh!

I wonder who

that could be.

[growling]

Hello.

Hello.

Who the heck

are you?

I'm Benton Tarentella.

[crickets chirping]

Benton Tarentella?

[crickets chirping]

The famous

independent movie director.

Oh, Eustace.

He's a famous

movie director.

Never heard of him.

I knew I saw

your face before.

You've been

on television, haven't you?

Well, yes.

I knew it!

I just knew it.

He's famous,

Eustace.

Big deal.

What do you

want?

I'll explain.

May I?

Oh, yes.

Come in,

Mr. Tarentella.

Come in.

Hmm...

I was driving by,

scouting locations

for my latest blockbuster.

Oh, scouting

locations.

That sounds

so fancy!

So what?

This is

my next Opus:

The Return of the Zombies

from Beneath the Farm.

Ohh! A real

movie script, Eustace!

And?

I want to make my movie here...

On your farm...

In this house.

Oh, "W-

We ain't

interested.

We'll pay tons of cash.

Ok.

We're interested.

Excellent.

Now, if you'll both

sign down there on the "X."

Aah!

[babbling]

What is it,

Courage?

[Whimpers]

Muriel, has anyone

ever told you

that you should

be in pictures?

Oh, my goodness, no.

Here's your contract.

When do we get paid?

Right after

we shoot the movie...

And we start shooting

tonight.

Ohh...

Tonight?

Oh, yes.

Isn't this exciting?

May I see your basement?

Yeah, this is great.

Great!

We'll do the zombie

resurrection scene here.

This is a great angle.

I love it.

We can do a tracking shot

over here,

and then rack focus.

Eustace, this place

is a mess.

We should really

straighten up for the movie.

Right.

This is great.

Great!

Aah!

[babbling]

Courage,

is something wrong?

Muriel...

[clears throat]

In this light,

well, you look like...

You look like you have

to be in my movie.

Oh, "W-

In this scene,

you will play the victim

of the zombie sacrifice.

Gracious.

That's so

exciting!

What's my role?

Your role is digging

the zombie's tomb.

Now you're talkin'.

Get away from me!

This is my role.

Oh...Oof...Ow...Ooh!

And don't let me

catch you down here again!

Stupid

scene-stealing dog...

COMPUTER: Sorry. No record of Benton Tarentella in the independent film database or in any film listings. Hey, you want to sing a song I know?

Courage: Just keep checking!

Yeah.

This is great!

This is gonna be great!

Courage: "Amateur Filmmakers Slay 12". [gasp] Oh, no! "Benton Tarentella and Errol Van Volkheim pose as film directors to lure unsuspecting victims to their fate." "Tarantella and Van Volkheim jailed." "Van Volkheim released for good behavior." "Tarentella dies in prison." I knew it! Tarentella's a zombie! Ooh! But where's this other guy-- Van Volkheim?

COMPUTER: He's dead.

Courage: Yes!

COMPUTER: And he was buried in a cemetery...

Courage: Good.

COMPUTER: That this house was built over.

Courage: Not good.

Right. That's right.

Nice and tight.

"Scene One:

Fool old people.

Scene Two:

Dig Big Hole.

Scene Three:

When planets align,

Dead partner rises

from the grave.

Scene Four:

Eat old lady."

Ooh!

Perfect.

You're just in time,

doggie.

I have a great role

for you.

You'll play the dog

locked up in the trunk.

Eustace?

Stupid overacting dog!

And quit stealing

my scenes!

[Courage wailing]

That's very good, Courage.

I didn't know

you could act.

The light is perfect.

Now what do I do?

Why, you're

the cameraman.

All you have

to do is run the camera.

Ha ha ha!

Do I get paid extra?

Sure.

Excellent.

Let's roll camera.

Rolling!

Ha ha ha!

Great!

This is gonna be great.

Great effects!

Benton.

Errol.

Let's set up for

the next shot.

Ja. I'm starving.

Eustace,

this next scene

features Mr. Van

Volkheim and myself

as newly risen zombies

about to devour Muriel.

I'm going to promote

you to director.

What's the pay?

Tons.

Deal!

Ha ha!

[s I u rps]

[muttering]

Ok. ls everyone ready?

Yes, yes.

We know

what to do.

Let's roll it.

Wait, wait!

What?

What?

Move over.

I can't see

Muriel's face.

Can we start now?

How should I know?

Check the script.

Let's see.

Here's the scene.

The big zombie lets the

dog out of the box.

What?

That's what it says.

Let me see that.

I don't remember...

Well, if it's

in the script...

Ok.

Yes!

Now what?

It says that

the zombies

go back in the hole

and the dog

buries them.

What?

This is not my work!

This is not my work!

I can't believe it.

You are such

a lousy writer.

You have always been

a lousy writer.

It's not my work!

I come all this way

just for you to write me

back in the grave!

That's it.

Our partnership is kaput,

once and for all.

I never want to work

with you again.

Ah, who wants to work with

a hack like you, anyway?

Oh, shut up!

I never saw

that ending coming.

Courage,

isn't this exciting?

[Whimpers]

When am I

gettin' paid?

Courage, dear,

you stole the whole movie.

I'm ready for

my close-up now.

[glass shatters]

Ouch!

Not that close!

[sheep bleats]

EUSTACE:

Stupid dog!
