MALLOY:

But I thought vampires didn't likelight.

LOUIS:

We love it. I only wanted to

prepare you.

Louis pulls the cord of the overhead naked light bulb.

LOUIS'S FACE

appears inhumanly white, eyes glittering. Inhuman or not

alive. The effect is subtle, beautiful and ghastly.

MALLOY:

Good God!

He struggles to suppress fear and understand.

LOUIS:

Don't be frightened. I want this

opportunity.

The light appears to go out by itself and suddenly Louisis in the chair, dimly lighted by the nearby lamp and thetape recorder has been turned on. The cassette is

turning.

MALLOY:

How did you do that!

LOUIS:

The same way you do it. A series

of simple gestures. Only I movedtoo fast for you to see. I'm

flesh and blood. Only not human.

CONTINUED:

LOUIS (CONT'D)

I haven't been for two hundred

years.

Malloy is speechless, frightened, yet enthralled.

Spellbound.

LOUIS:

What can I do to put you at ease?

Shall we begin like DavidCopperfield? I am born, I grow

up. Or shall we begin when I wasborn to darkness, as we call it.

That's really where we shouldstart, don't you think?

MALLOY:

(baffled)

You're not lying to me, are you?

LOUIS:

No. 1791 -- that's the year whenit happened. I was twenty-four -younger

than you are now.

MALLOY:

Yes.

LOUIS:

But times were different then. I

was a man at that age. The master

of a large plantation just Southof New Orleans...

DISSOLVE TO:

EXT. LOUISIANA - DAY (1791)

A disheveled Louis, hair in pigtail, in deep pocket frockcoat, rides his horse through the fields of indigo,

waving here and there to the African slaves at work.

He passes slave quarters and the distant colonial raisedcottage mansion of Pointe du Lac.
