Alone in the Dark

Synopsis: Edward Carnby, detective of the paranormal, unexplained and supernatural, investigates a mystery (the recent death of a friend) with clues leading to "Shadow Island" that brings him face to face with bizarre horrors that prove both psychologically disturbing and lethal, as he discovers that evil demons worshiped by an ancient culture called the Abskani are planning on coming back to life in the 21st century to once again take over the world... and only he and a young genius anthropologist with an incredible memory (and his ex-girlfriend), Aline Cedrac, stand in their way, at a gateway to hell. Standing in Carnby's way, however, is the impact that a brief encounter with an evil spirit called the Queen had upon his mind, as he slowly finds himself overpowered by the forces of darkness as they eat away at his very sanity...

Hey, where is Hudgens anyway?

The show opens

in a couple days.

He's off on another

archaeological goose chase.

He thinks he's finally

found the Arabis.

So he sticks you

with all the work.

At least it takes your mind

off your boyfriend, right?

I'll be in my office

if you need me.


They say a sunken ship

is like a grave.

It should never be disturbed.

I've been searching

for the Arabis...

for over twenty years, Captain,

and now that I've found it...

I'm afraid your

ill-informed superstitions...

aren't enough to stop me.

OK, Hudgens,

let's see what we've got.

Edward, it's John here.

I don't know if you're back from

wherever you were this time...

but if you are, call me.

It's the nightmares.

They've started again.

I need to know if it's just me.

Call me, please.

Well, are you going

to open it up...

make sure it's what

you're looking for?

The conditions must be perfect.


there may be consequences.

Is this made of solid gold?

You know, the Abkani

was the first civilization...

to use gold

to house their valuables.

They believed it held the power

to contain evil spirits.


we can't even remember...

why we value gold

in the first place.

Let's just load this

on the truck.

If the container

is made of solid gold...

whatever's inside

must be worth a fortune.

Oh, you have no idea.

But I'm looking forward

to finding out.

Listen. Listen!

You'll make a terrible mistake!

The only mistake

I'd be making...

is letting you walk out

with whatever's inside.

Throw him in there!

Please! No!

Open it up, Captain.

Let's see what we've got.

Don't open it!


Oh, God.

What are we looking at,


Electromagnetics off the scale,


I've never seen

anything like it.


all sensors now, sir.
