The Monster Squad script
Synopsis: Members (Andre Gower, Robby Kiger) of a monster fan club meet Count Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein, the Mummy and Gill Man.

Rueger looks on in disbelief from his rooftop perch. He

moves; a series of cautious steps and superhuman agility, as

he leaps onto the broken neck of the crane and scales it to

the deck of the hulking ship.

EXT. SHIP'S DECK

The freighter's main deck has been shattered, unlashed cargo

and open flames everywhere. Rueger picks his way through the

debris, cautiously approaching the sprawled shape of a BODY.

He turns it over with his foot: the sailor's neck has been

torn open, the man's face contorted into an expression of

raw, frozen TERROR. As Rueger recoils slightly, a frantic

pair of hands abruptly SEIZES him. A survivor. The sailor

babbles in Russian, as Rueger struggles against him.

.

RUEGER:

Where is he?! For God's sake…

The man breaks away with a rough shove, knocking Rueger to

the ground and running for one of the open hatches to the

hold.

4.

The sailor staggers down the steps and into the murky

darkness. Rueger fights to his feet as the sound of panicked

screaming emerges from the stairwell; it peaks, and is cut

off sharply by a horrible gurgling sound.

Rueger's breathing quickens. Footsteps. From the smoke and

flames emerges a tall, elegant form: swarthy and lean,

dressed in an archaic ensemble of hooded cloak and a sleek,

military-style tunic and slacks. KAZIGLU BEY. His long black

hair pulled into an ornamental topknot, bloodied hands

adorned in exotic silver rings. His black eyes find Rueger

cowering amidst the devastation, and the gap between the men

is sheared in a single, predatory leap.

Bey's fingers close around Rueger's throat. Holding him in

place as his free hand tears Rueger's shirt open, revealing a

ragged mark carved into the skin there: a crude rendition of

a dragon wrapped around a crusader's cross. Bey releases his

grip, as Rueger shrinks back in fear.
