Narrator: Our tales beings in the rural hills near Grafton where locals have reported a strange creature lurking in the woods. Robby Cockgril and Peggy Mansfield were out on a date, celebrating Peggy's birthday. A full moon looms large as they drove.
(Tires screeching, engine noise)
Peggy: Robby, you're going too fast!
Robby: Don't worry, this nuclear roadster handles like a dream.
Peggy: Where are you taking me anyway?
Robby: I told ya it's a birthday surprise.
Peggy: Way out here in the woods? There's nothing this far out of Grafton, except that hospital by the river. Wait, I bet we're going to that new drive-in over in Clarksburg, right? Just so you can show off your slick new hot rod.
Robby: Ah, come on don't be like that Peggy. I just that thought driving would be romantic.
Peggy: Oh, Robby... Robby, look out!
(Brakes screeching) (metal thuds)
Robby: Peggy, are you okay? Peggy?
Peggy: Yeah, I'm okay.
Robby: What happened?
Peggy: There was a huge boulder in the middle of the road. I tried to warn you, but it was too late.
Robby: But look in the road, there's nothing there.
Peggy: How could that be? I-I saw it plain as day in the headlights. And just look at the front end: it's smashed right in. I mean... it didn't just get up and walk away!
Peggy: What was that?
Robby: Probably just a wolf.
Peggy: That didn't sound like a wolf to me!
(Loud footsteps in woods) (louder growling)
Peggy: There it is again!
Peggy: Whatever it is, it sounds like it's coming this way!
Robby: Look, those lights by the river! That would be the hospital, we can get help there. Come on.
(Car door closes) (Footsteps in grass)
Peggy: Ow! My foot! I think I hurt it in the accident! Look, I'm bleeding!
Robby: Everything's going to be okay. Here, lean against me. Ugh, there ya go. (panting)
(Footsteps in grass)
