London 1888
Whitechapel District

[camera pans across the rooftops at night and zooms onto an alley where a streetwalker is plying her trade]

Molly
Lonely tonight gentlemen?

[a small green flash is seen in the background in an adjacent dark alley]

Druitt
Still at it Molly?

Molly
Oh, Mr Druitt, you frightened me. No rest for the gifted, you know that

Druitt
Indeed I do

Molly
You shouldn't be in the alley jumping out at the ladies these days. What with all the troubles.

Druitt
What was I thinking? Forgive me.

[Druitt starts to draw his walking sword behind his back]

Helen
John! This ends here.

Druitt
Helen, what a lovely surprise. Molly, I'd like you to meet my fiance. Or should I say, former fiance, Helen Magnus. Doctor Helen Magnus.

Molly
Doctor, I'm pleased to meet you Ma'am. Well, I'll be on my way.

[Druitt stops Molly from leaving by grabbing her arm]

Druitt
Stay, I insist

Helen
John let me help you before you make things worse.

Druitt
And how is that possible? I've already murdered what? Seven whores. How could one more make the slightest difference?

Molly
Murdered? No!

[Druitt grabs Molly covers her mouth and holds his sword against her throat]

Druitt
What more have I to lose?

Helen
Your power is driving you mad, John. I can help.

Druitt
Mr power is all I have left.

[Helen cocks her pistol and aims at Druitt]

Helen
Let. Her. Go.

[Druitt starts to release Molly]

Druitt
As the lady wishes.

[Cop 1 gets down on floor and tries to get the kid out]

Cop 1
Hey kid. You OK? It's Ok, c'mon. See, it's OK. Just reach out and grab my hand, OK? It's OK. Just reach out and grab my hand, just grab my hand, OK? I said come here!

[hear a whip noise and a squish noise]
[Cop 1 falls to the ground dead with a hole in his head]
[screams]

[kid stands up behind the bed]
[a tentacle thing is seen onscreen, right side]

[cut to Helen in alley, lots of screaming is heard]

Title sequence

[Fade in, night time on a darkened street, a TV can be heard]
[Pan from a TV to a young boy being scared by the TV show]

TV Narrator
Monsters, strange creatures that walk the earth, searching for innocent victims, ready to strike at any moment. These creatures such as the legendary Sasquatch or Bigfoot can exist in any climate on Earth, in any city, in any town and some day they may be coming to visit you.

Babysitter
Will! Your parents are pulling in. Remember our deal, OK?

Will
OK

[Fade out]

[a curtain is blowing in the wind, a child can be heard whimpering in the background]
[A young Will is cowering in bed mumbling to himself]

Will
Just a stupid movie

Will
There's no such thing as monsters, no such thing as monsters, no such thing as monsters

[Goes to window and closes it]
[a growl is heard]
[a monster enters the room growling]
[Will screams]

[cut to a man sleeping on a couch]
[screams transform into a ringing pager and the man jerks awake]

Will
Oh. Thank you.

[man picks up his glasses and pager and reads message]

[cut to man donning a lab coat as he approaches a nurses station]

Will
Somebody page me?

Nurse
Excuse me doctor. Have a nice nap?

Will
No, not really

Nurse
Consult, homicide suspect, real heavy hitter

Will
Anyone we know?

Nurse
Oh ho ho, man you're going to love this one

[nurse hands a case file to Will]

[cut to a room filled with Police]

Larry
This is harassment, plain and simple. You will all be hearing from my lawyer. Especially you Tom Cruise I know you are the one that shot me or was it you, huh?

Detective
Oh come on. Look we both know your lawyer is too freaked out to be in the same room with you, so let's kill the music and lay our cards on the table shall we?

Larry
OK. OK, you want me to lay it out, huh?

Detective
Yeah

Larry
Well, alright, you know your dollar store cologne stinks

Detective
That's funny

[detective hits Larry in his injured leg]

Detective
You whacked six people tonight, including two cops. You think this is harassment? We're not even in the vicinity yet!

[Will enters room]

Larry
Really? You know you could always just use deodorant.

Will
Hey! Whoa guys, guys, hey guys, I got it. I got it from here. OK.

Larry
Thank God

Will
Man, long time no see

Larry
Come to get Lieutenant Gitmo off my back?

Will
Cavanaugh

Detective
Zimmerman

Will
I hear you need an eval

Detective
Yeah, well you heard wrong. Look just patch him up, we'll handle the rest

Larry
See! That's a threat. They're not even trying to hide it

Will
Alright, alright, Joe, Joe sidebar

[Will and detective move to the side of the room to talk]

Detective
Make it fast. Uptown wants him arraigned like yesterday. Me, I'm just dying for a chance to shoot his ass

Will
I know what happened tonight but Tolson used to be a patient of mine. Why don't you give me a few minutes alone with him. You know, maybe I can shake some stuff loose for you. At the very least I'll save you a disciplinary hearing

Detective
Alright, let's give him the room. I hope you know what you are doing. Let's go! Come on.

[the 5 Policemen leave the room]

Larry
So, you look good Doc

[cut to another room looking through a window to Will and Larry]
[Helen and the nurse from before are watching]

Nurse
Alone with M and M, hmmm. Zimmerman always did have serious balls

Helen
M and who?

Nurse
The Manderville Monster. Did 12 years in Ivy Heights after killing his foster parents, got out a couple of months ago. I guess people don't change, do they.

Helen
I suppose not

[Cut back to Larry and Will]

Will
You working on the sequel rights there Larry?

Larry
No way. No how. Not this time

Will
So then why the escort service and the bullet in the leg?

Larry
Ask them. One minute I'm watching the Discovery Channel and the next I'm, I'm surrounded by cops. I asked for a warrant and, and they shoot me

Will
Well they found you watching TV alright but you were surrounded by corpses. Did you lose your meds?

Larry
No, no that's not it.

Will
Hey, look the studio audience is gone, Larry, it's just me, alright and I need to hear the truth.

Larry
Alright. I dropped in on the family downstairs. All the yelling and the screaming. I'm nothing if not neighbourly, right?

[Will is taking notes]

Will
Yelling and screaming?

Larry
Oh yeah! There's like 50 of them living down there. There's like young ones and old ones and it's like Red Square 24/7, you know what I'm saying?

Will
So, you just went down to complain about the noise?

Larry
I didn't kill anyone this time, promise. I heard what was going on... so I went down to check out the kid's technique, that's all.

Will
The kid?

Larry
The Rusky kid, except he wasn't a kid was he? He was... he was, ah, special

Will
Special, what does that mean?

Larry
Think about it Doc, those two cops...just Bang, Bang. Just like, like that takes talent you know? Believe me, I know. But the kid, the kid has... the kid has serious juice!

Will
Is that the real version Larry? Because I'm not feeling any love here.

Larry
On the level?

Will
Yeah

Larry
You think I whacked the Bolsheviks? Hell, fine with me. I miss my room in the Ivy, you know. But the way he took out the cops, the truth? The truth...

Will
Larry...

Larry
The kid, Will, you don't want to find him.

[Cut to black, a doctor opens a cabinet door and we see the morgue from inside the cabinet]
[orderlies enter the morgue with gurneys]

Orderly
Fresh meat! Coming through

Doctor
Subtle

Orderly
Russo, Albert and Birch, Lawrence. Two cops, bought it tonight uptown

Doctor
Yeah we've been expecting them, put them in holding

Orderly
Got four more coming later. EMS says it was a real butcher shop

Doctor
Aren't they all these days?

[doors open again and Helen enters]

Doctor
Helen

Helen
Eleanor

Doctor
They're in the cold room

Helen
Thank you

Doctor
Lunch next week?

Helen
Love to, I'll call

[Doctor starts a saw and works on a body while Helen goes through to the cold room]

[close up of a body bag]
[Helen opens it and begins her examination]

[cut to another room with Will entering it]

Will
I know what it looks like but he's not your man

Detective
A convicted psycho just wanders into a pre existing bloodbath? Cut the crap Zimmerman, he's our guy

Will
Trust me. Tolson did not kill those people

Detective
Severe cranial lacerations, removal of grey matter. I read his jacket, this is our guy's kind of party

Will
Yeah, and this time he was just a guest, not the host. Larry Tolson has a very specific form of delusional psychosis, he kills for reasons that you and I think that are crazy but they make sense to him

Will
12 years ago, why did he kill his foster parents?

Detective
Uh, I don't know. Something about their brains stealing power

Will
He sees people as either conduits or syphons. If he thinks you're trying to steal his energy, he feels threatened and that's when he kills. Believe me, Forensics will go through the whole nine yards and they won't find one shred of DNA to link him. Sorry man, but they pay me to do my homework.

Detective
OK, whoa, whoa. Zimmerman, lets just say that I buy this psycho crap defence, which you know I don't, then who the hell did it?

Will
That's your job, Joe. It's not mine.

[cut to a body in the morgue]
[pan to Helen working on another body]
[she extracts something from the hole in the body's head]
[it glows luminescent green as Helen examines it]

[cut to someone running down an alley in the rain]
[it is Alexi, the Russian boy]
[a train runs past on an overhead trestle]
[Alexi looks down to a grate in the ground]

[cut to a subway sign]
[Alexi runs past the sign, Ashley follows him]
[a green flash is seen in the background]
[a tall man walks forward to where Ashley just passed by]

[cut to a train tunnel]
[Alexi jumps down to the tracks and walks along, looking about as he goes]
[Ashley follows along behind him]

[cut to an overhead of a train on a trestle]
[pan down through the buildings to Will walking along in the rain with Helen following]

Helen
Hard to believe such an outlandish story isn't it?

Will
Excuse me?

Helen
The Manderville Monster. It would have been easy to lay the blame directly at his feet and yet, you didn't. Well done.

[Will stops to talk to Helen]
[The rain continues to fall]

Will
Nice to know I have fans

Helen
You saw it didn't you?

Will
Saw what?

Helen
You saw the clarity of Mr Tolson's eyes when he told you who did kill those people.

Will
Look, not that it's any of your business but that I saw were the ramblings of a delusional psychotic. So it wasn't Tolson, it was someone just like him

Helen
Except such carnage could never be the work of a madman could it? The police may think it possible, but you don't

Will
Listen, it's late and I gotta...

Helen
He told you about the boy didn't he? A child capable of such murderous destruction, he just had to see it for himself. Mr Tolson was there as an admirer, was he not?

Will
There was no boy

Helen
No ordinary boy

Will
Look, who are you? How do you know about this?

Helen
I've heard such accounts many times before. As for who I am...

[Helen hands Will a business card, it appears blank then the writing Sanctuary appears]
[as will takes it the words "for all" appear]

Helen
...a friend, I hope

[Helen turns and walks back the way she came]
[camera pan up to the rooftops and then traverses the old city]
[and pans down to an old estate on a river across from the new city]
[cut to Sanctuary logo and end]
