BROOM:

Ruins. Not rocks. The remains of

Trondham Abbey. Built on an

intersection of Ley Lines, the

boundaries between our world and the

other --

WHITMAN:

(interrupts him)

What a load of crap. Hell, a week

ago I hadn't even heard the word

parabnormal --

BROOM:

"Paranormal"

(Whitman moves on)

But -- you read the transmission.

WHITMAN:

Half transmission. Nonsense -- German

ghost stories!

BROOM:

I have seen ghosts, Whitman.

WHITMAN:

Oh, I'll bet you have.

Reaching a slope, Matlin sets down his camera. Turning, he

sees lights.

MATLIN:

Sweet Jesus.

Drenched, Broom and Whitman look down upon an impressive

ROMANESQUE RUIN. Under worklights, dozens of NAZI SOLDIERS

swarm among thick stone walls and archways.

BROOM:

They must be here for the sheep.

OMIT:

EXT. AMONG THE RUINS - NIGHT

A dozen German soldiers swiftly assemble a large steel

MACHINE. The work is monitored by a spindly Nazi in BLACK

LEATHER, his face covered by an odd gas mask: KROENEN.

WHITMAN:

The freak in the gas mask --

BROOM:

Karl Ruprecht Kroenen, one of the

Reich's top Scientists. Head of the

Thule Occult Society.

EXT. NEARBY - BROOM - NIGHT

He lowers a pair of binoculars and passes them to Whitman.

BROOM:

If he's here, this is worse than I

thought.

WHITMAN:

(to the radio man)

Air and sea backup. What's closest?

The RADIOMAN cranks a transmitter to life.

RADIO MAN:

Londonderry, sir. Forty minutes away.

BROOM:

We don't have forty minutes.

EXT. ABBEY RUINS - ALTAR AREA - NIGHT

Kroenen throws a switch: On the machine, dozens of gears

respond!

Steam pistons thrust copper rails upright, lifting two mighty

metal rings, not unlike a gyroscope. Kroenen grunts and

signals for more floodlights to be turned on.
