Grandma Z - The Best Grandparents NEVER Die....

Grandma-Z
A couple of stoners must use a Ouija Board to summon the spirit of their
dead grandmother in order to locate her medical marijuana stash,
or else spend the entire wake unstoned.

Irreverent grandparents are always a guaranteed laugh on film. But in Grandma-Z, writer Craig Thomas brings us even more: a comedy/horror featuring a badass grandparent that can still wreak hell on earth - even after she passes on.

As the script opens, meet Carlos and Mo: two stoners who realize their biggest fear at their Grandmother’s wake. Even worse than losing beloved Nana… they’ve run out of weed!

All seems lost, until Mo remembers his Grandmother’s medical quirks and cures. Through the use of a Ouija Board, they reach out to their dearly missed relative to help them locate her stash:

A room full of mourners. To one side is an open casket. Inside is GRANDMA. Very much dead.

Beside it stands MO (20s) and CARLOS (20s).

CARLOS
Remember how everyone said she's outlive us both?
Well, I was dead that one time, but that was only for a little bit.
Still, this sucks.

MO
Oh man.

CARLOS
I know.

MO
How could this happen?

CARLOS
She was old and angry.
Her heart finally just popped.
Like a wrinkly balloon left in the sun.

MO
What?
(realizing)
Oh, not that. We're out of weed.

Carlos looks at the empty baggie in Mo's hand. He’d been slyly preparing a spliff on the edge of the casket… but now:

CARLOS
WHY GOD, WHY?!

HOWARD and STELLA watch from across the room.

STELLA
They must have been really close.

MO
Wait, didn't grandma have glaucoma?

CARLOS
I think so. Why?

Mo smiles across from Carlos. Slow realization spreads across his face.

Flash forward to the Oujia Board.

Before one can conjure Cheech and Chong, Grandma is successfully reached from beyond - and her precious weed found.  

But on returning to the wake, these two loveable stoners - and the rest of the mourners - encounter a turn of events no-one could predict.
Cue Grandma: rising from her open casket with a grisly case of the munchies, hell bent on reclaiming what’s hers.

With witty dialogue and comedic storyline that keeps the reader hooked, Grandma-Z is a gem of a screenplay; one that serves up horror with a smile. Any indie fan can testify: stoner humor’s always a hit when done right. Splice in some Cryptkeeper yucks, and this is one little script you should bring to life!
