INT. OPENING MONTAGE

OVER BLACK a low rumble increases in volume.

FADE UP:

A GLOVED HAND wraps around a bulky scissor-switch, thrusts

DOWN.

SNAP! - Electricity arcs through darkness.

OS SOUND of MACHINERY turning on.

TITLES OVER:

MONTAGE OF CLOCKS - VARIOUS. The clocks are frozen, then second

hands turn - TICKING gets louder...

EXT. CITY STREET - NIGHT

The streets are empty - no sign of life. Eerie silence.

A DOORWAY opens in the side of a building, then:

A line of shadowy figures walks out. Men, dressed in black full-

length coats, bald...

The STRANGERS walk silently out into the city.

INT. BATHROOM - NIGHT

SHADOWS DANCE - in and out of darkness. A hooded light-bulb

swings IN SLOW MOTION from the ceiling, its dim light REVEALS:

A GLASS SYRINGE - broken on the floor.

Clothes on a chair...

Puddles of water on the floor...

ANGLE ON SLEEPING EYES - Between waves of light they snap open and

dart about in confusion.

ON JONATHAN WALKER as he sits up. Water splashes. He's in a tub

of long-cold water. His neck aches like he's been sleeping forever.

TIGHT ON WALKER - he's in his early thirties, dark featured.

HIS P.O.V. - looking around the room. Everything's strange,

unfamiliar.

He stands, steps from the tub.

ANGLE - THE SWINGING LIGHT BULB. Walker's hand ENTERS FRAME,

stops the bulb mid swing.

ON HIS REFLECTION in a cracked wall mirror. He moves to the mirror

and looks at himself. A line of blood runs across his face, from a

point between his eyes. he wipes it away, and notices a tiny pin-

prick wound on his forehead.
