FADE IN:

INT. CLUB – NIGHT

With typical HOUSE/DANCE/TECHNO BEATS a bunch of hot bods dance in the adult playground under laser beams and strobe lights.

Right there in the middle of the dance floor Lady Gaga and her girlfriend put on their own moves while having fun.

Amongst the lights and bodies they notice a lone figure moving to the BEAT as he stares at them.

The gals whisper to one another and giggle it off, getting back to the dance trance the MUSIC puts them in.

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. SUBWAY CAR – NIGHT

Gaga and her girl make it into a subway car right before the doors shut on them and find a place to stand at the end as the ravers of the night , also heading home, have all the seats filled.

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. SUBWAY CAR – LATER

Cracking up at who knows what, the two friends remain in their corner of the coach despite empty seats now being available.

The subway car comes to a stop.

GAGA’S GIRL

(as she heads out)

K, hun, see you tomorrow.

GAGA

Later.

Gaga leans up against the wall in their spot and takes a breath/moment from the fun-filled night as the train continues on its way.

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. SUBWAY CAR – LATER

Opening her eyes from her few moments of silence Gaga notices through the limited light passing through the windows that she’s the only passenger left, or so she thinks…

She takes a look at her watch.

Something on the other end of the coach catches her eye, but she has to wait until another light passes before she can make it out…

A lone figure, his eyes the only thing the occasional passing light catches.

LYRICS

Don’t call me Gaga

Extreme close-up, Gaga’s eyes.

LYRICS

I’ve never seen one like that before

Their eyes having made contact, they just stare at one another.

LYRICS

Don’t look at me like that

You amaze me

The quick passing lights on Gaga’s side slightly start to increase, within each a subtle image of her SINGING.

LYRICS

(Gaga’s image singing)

He ate my heart

He a-a-ate my heart out

(you little monster)

He ate my heart

He a-a-ate my heart out

(you amaze me)

The passing lights/subtle images become more in rhythm with the MUSIC as BEAT comes in, much like the dance club.

LYRICS

(Gaga’s image singing)

He ate my heart

He a-a-ate my heart out

(you little monster)

He ate my heart

He a-a-ate my heart out

(you amaze me)

Staying against her end of the car with her back to it she’s cautious as she slips into her PERFORMANCE, her eyes remaining locked towards the other end.

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

Look at him

look at me

That boy is bad

and honestly

He’s a wolf

in disguise

but I can’t stop staring

in those evil eyes

Still cautious but slowly starting to move forward like a curious cat as she moves to the BEAT…

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

I asked my girlfriend

if she’d seen you round before

She mumbled something

while we got down on the floor

Baby

Although there still remains a trace of caution her boldness starts to increase.

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

We might’ve fucked

not really sure

don’t quite recall

But something tells me

that I’ve seen him

yeah

before

Planting her feet into place she now turns on her PERFORMANCE FULL BLAST. (With occasional quick flashes of her monster’s figure at the other end)

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

He’s a monster

That boy is a monster

M-m-m-monster

That boy is a monster

M-m-m-monster

That boy is a monster

Er-er-er-er

Full frame – with the passing lights through the window Lady Gaga’s subtle image… (A little more apparent than before)

LYRICS

(Gaga’s image singing)

He ate my heart

Extreme close-up, her monster’s lips.

LYRICS

(He mouth’s…)

I love that girl

Full frame subtle image

LYRICS

(Gaga’s image singing)

He ate my heart

Extreme close-up, her monster’s preying eyes staring out at her…

LYRICS

Wanna talk to her

she’s hot as hell

Back to settle image.

LYRICS

(Gaga’s image singing)

He ate my heart

Extreme close-up, his lips.

LYRICS

(He mouth’s…)

I love that girl

Subtle image.

LYRICS

(Gaga’s image singing)

He ate my heart

Extreme close-up, monster licks his lips…

LYRICS

Wanna talk to her

she’s hot as hell

With her bod seductively up against one of the subway car’s pules, so delicious he can pounce on her at any time.

LYRICS

He licked his lips

said to me

girl you look good

enough to eat

Put his arms

around me

Said “now get your paws

right off of me”

FLASHBACK, MATCH CUT on the lights, as Gaga is back at the club dancing with her friend.

LYRICS

I asked my girlfriend

if she’d seen you round before

She mumbled something

while we got down on the floor

Baby

Back in the coach Gaga shoots a look up to camera, which sends it into a slow fall back.

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

We might’ve fucked

not really sure

don’t quite recall

FLASHBACK/MATCH CUT, amongst the lights and bodies the lone monster figure and his eyes…

LYRICS

But something tells me

that I’ve seen him

yeah

before

Gaga PERFORMS, occasionally cutting to her monster in waiting.

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

He’s a monster

That boy is a monster

M-m-m-monster

That boy is a monster

M-m-m-monster

That boy is a monster

Er-er-er-er

Matching the imagery from our previous subtle images Gaga JumpCuts closer towards the center of the coach…

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

He ate my heart

Her monster’s figure does as well, passing lights making his lips visible…

LYRICS

(He mouth’s…)

I love that girl

She JumpCuts closer.

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

He ate my heart

And so does he, spotlighting his eyes…

LYRICS

Want to talk to her

she’s hot as hell

She’s nearly at the center of the coach.

LYRICS

(Gaga singing)

He ate my heart

And he’s closing in…

LYRICS

I love that girl

Back-to-back, they’re seconds away from being face-to-face…

LYRICS

He ate my heart

Wanna talk to her

she’s hot as hell

Simultaneously they turn towards one another, the moment of truth now climatically here as the two mirror each other by slowly raising their palms to meet…

(Lights having morphed into more of a strobe light effect while continuing to keep most of him in the shadows)

LYRICS

He ate my heart

He ate my heart

Instead

He’s a monster in my bed

Extreme close-up, as their fingers start to interlace his monsterly hand starts to engulf hers while she slowly lets it do so, like pre succumbing to being hunted.

LYRICS

He ate my heart

He ate my heart

Instead

He’s a monster in my bed

The passing lights start to decrease, therefore only giving us glimpses as to know what’s going on in that subway coach…

His hands passing over her flesh…

He licks his lips…

Her eyes close…

His mouth opens…

LYRICS

I wanna just dance

but he took me home

instead

Uh-oh

there was a monster in my bed

An exterior shot of the train speeding through a tunnel…

Hands grasp railings…

Gaga’s head tilts back in ecstasy…

LYRICS

We French kissed

on a subway train

He tore my close right off

He ate my heart

and then he ate my brain

Body parts spotlit here and there…

LYRICS

Uh-oh uh-oh

I love that girl

Wanna talk to her

she’s hot as hell

A barrage of shots from inside the coach and out…

Gaga is now on the tracks as trains from both sides zoom past her as we layer this in among the FULL BLAST continuing barrage of the other shots, including her monster devouring her, until…

LYRICS

(Gaga singing on tracks)

That boy is a monster

M-m-m-monster

Could I love him?

That boy is a monster

M-m-m-monster

Could I love him?

That boy is a monster

M-m-m-monster

Could I love him?

That boy is a monster

Er-er-er-er
