gone. Now only its

gone. Now only its petrified skeletal remains stand in a weathered heap. ...Waiting. NARRATOR (V.O.) A four wheel drive vehicle roars PAST THE CAMERA and toward the castle. 7 INT. CASTLE OF KAN DAR - DAY - (STUDIO) - TRACKING SHOT The CAMERA slowly tracks in toward the Book of the Dead as it sits in the darkness of the stone tomb. Next to it rests the KANDARIAN DAGGER, an ancient knife, its handle fashioned from the skull of a weasel. They rest upon a small pedestal covered with cobwebs. Prominently displayed on the stone wall, a bas relief of the "Hero from the Sky" holding his unusual jagged edged weapon. And then... NARRATOR (V.O.) The grinding of rock scraping against rock is heard, and a large stone is swung open on a secret hinge in the wall behind the book. Wind sweeps in through the tomb, along with the blinding light from outside. A sharply silhouetted figure steps in the newly created doorway. The figure lights a torch that he holds, illuminating his face. This is PROFESSOR RAYMOND KNOWBY. An intelligent, grey bearded man in his late fifties. He lowers the cloth around his face that had been protecting him from the sand. He stares at the Book, awestruck. Behind him, two other figures appear in the entrance of the tomb. The first is a large school-marmish woman, the wife of Raymond Knowby, HENRIETTA. She moves to Raymond's side and takes his hand. Immediately behind her is their daughter, ANNIE KNOWBY; twenty-four years old, strong stance and beautiful. Behind her a handsome looking man, ED GETLY, enters the tomb. He moves to Annie's side. They exchange excited glances. The CAMERA PANS down to the Book. 8 INT. STUDIO - BLACK - MED. SHOT - FOG Billowing past the camera in front of a black drape. 9 EXT. CABIN - NIGHT - LONG SHOT DISSOLVE THRU TO: DISSOLVE THRU TO: An old log cabin, built in the valley of a dark forest. A great wind billows fog about the place. NARRATOR (V.O.) Professor Raymond Knowby and his wife, HENRIETTA, brought the book to a small cabin where they could study

it undisturbed. 10 INT. CABIN MAIN ROOM - NIGHT Professor Raymond Knowby sits at a writing desk and transcribes passages from the Book of the Dead. A small framed photograph of his daughter Annie sits upon the table. Behind him, HENRIETTA sits knitting in a rocking chair. 11 CLOSE SHOT - RAYMOND He speaks the phonetic pronunciation of completed sentences into the microphone of a tape recorder. RAYMOND Kanda...Es-trata...Ta-toon...Hazan sobar...Ear-Grets, Gat...Nos-feratos ...Amantos...Kanda! The sound of RAYMOND reciting the passages is faded down AS THE CAMERA SLOWLY TRACKS away from RAYMOND and over to HENRIETTA as she rocks back into the darkness and forward into the light. As she rocks forward into the light, she comes into FULL CLOSEUP revealing that her eyes have changed to a milky white. She continues to knit. 12 INT. STUDIO - BLACK - MED. SHOT - FOG Blowing past the camera in front of black drape. 13 INT. CABIN CELLAR - NIGHT (STUDIO) DISSOLVE THRU TO: DISSOLVE THRU TO: A dank fruit cellar with shelves of half-rotten preserves. Raymond has his back to the stone wall. He is dictating into the tape recorder, sweating and distraught. RAYMOND It has only been a few hours since I've translated and spoke aloud the first of the demon resurrection passages from the Book of the Dead. The sound of heavy footsteps. Dust drifts down INTO FRAME. Raymond looks up to the ceiling of the cellar. It is also the floor to the main room of the cabin. He watches in horror as Henrietta's silhouette paces the floor above him. And then, the footsteps halt. RAYMOND And now, I fear that my wife has become host to a Kandarian demon. May God forgive me for what I have unleashed onto this earth.
