ANYWAY, THIS CAME IN THIS MORNING.

I HAD A HUNCH ABOUT IT, GAVE THE GUY A GOOD PRICE...

HELLO, BETTY !

WOW ! THIS IS-- TH-THIS-- [ Chuckles ] WHAT'S ITS PROVENANCE ?

OH ! I BOUGHT IT FROM A GUY WHO SAID HE GOT IT FROM HIS GRANDMOTHER. THAT'S ALL I KNOW.

HEARD THAT ONE BEFORE. TELL YOU WHAT.

I WANT TO HAVE MY BEST APPRAISER TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

SHANNON WILL FILL OUT A RECEIPT FOR YOU.

AND THANK YOU FOR, UH... CHOOSING REGAL AUCTIONEERS.

SURE.

NOW I SHOULD SECOND GUESS

MY JUDGMENT

GUESS THAT'S IT.

GUESS IT IS.

NICE GAME.

OOH !

SO HOW IS, UM,

RICK ?

[ Sighs ] I DON'T KNOW.

I HAVEN'T SPOKEN TO HIM. IT'S OVER.

WHAT'S IT BEEN NOW ? SIX AND A HALF WEEKS ?

SEVEN.

WHAT ?

ARE YOU COUNTING ?

I THOUGHT...

MAYBE WE, UH--

WHAT ?

I THOUGHT MAYBE WE COULD GO OUT.

WE GO OUT ALL THE TIME.

YES, WE GO OUT... ALL THE TIME.

UH-HUH.

BUT WE DON'T "GO OUT." THERE'S A DIFFERENCE.

JOSH.

YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND. DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD A FRIEND IS TO FIND ?

I DON'T WANNA-- I DON'T WANNA MESS THAT UP. DATES ARE A DIME A DOZEN.

COME ON, ALEX. THAT IS SO OLD.

IT'S A DATE.

YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS ? I'M JUST--

I'M JUST WORRIED ABOUT LOSING WHAT LITTLE I'VE GOT LEFT NOW, INCLUDING YOU.

HOW ABOUT DINNER AND A MOVIE ?

HOW ABOUT HOT DOGS AND A BALL GAME ?

PLAYING IT SAFE, HUH ?

I'M GOING OUT ON A LIMB HERE.

I'M CASTING A SPELL ON YOU HERE, ALEX.

MAYBE IT'LL WORK.

HEY.

EXCELLENT TRANSLUCENCE.

OH, THAT'S A GOOD WORD.

[ Djinn In Eerie Voice ] YOU WOKE ME.

YOU WOKE ME.

[ Screams ]

WHAT ?

I-- I DIDN'T HEAR YOU COME IN. YOU SCARED ME.

WHAT'S THE VERDICT ?

I THINK... THERE MAY BE SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT.

AGH ! DOES IT AFFECT THE VALUE ?

I HAVE TO TALK TO A FRIEND OF MINE. WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO RUN MORE TESTS.

TESTS ?

LIKE WHAT, A PHYSICAL ?

THERE'S SOMETHING INSIDE OF IT ?

RIGHT.

I DON'T KNOW. I'M NO GEMMOLOGIST.

I COULD RUN SPECTRAL-ANALYSIS. INFRARED. GET SOME READINGS.

- THAT'D BE GREAT. CAN YOU DO IT NOW ? - OH, HOLD ON, HOLD ON.

I'VE GOT ABOUT TWO HOURS' WORTH OF PROFESSOR LEIBER'S BULLSHIT TO TAKE CARE OF FIRST.

I'LL GET TO IT AS SOON AS I CAN. YOU WANT TO STAY ?

COME ON, COME ON !

SHOOT, SIERRA !

YOU.

THAT WAS VERY GOOD. DO YOU KNOW WHY YOU MISSED ? YOU DIDN'T HAVE STILLNESS.

ALL OF YOU CAN PUT THE BALL IN THE HOOP AS LONG AS YOU TAKE YOUR TIME,

TAKE A BREATH, GET YOUR AIM.

YOU DON'T ALWAYS HAVE THAT TIME IN A GAME.

SOMEBODY'S ALWAYS GOING TO BE TRYING TO TAKE THE BALL AWAY FROM YOU.

THAT'S WHEN YOU NEED STILLNESS.

NOT IN YOUR BODY, IN YOUR MIND.

WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE TO MAKE A SHOT, YOU'VE GOT TO FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE.

TIME DOESN'T EXIST. THE OTHER PLAYERS DO NOT EXIST.

IT IS YOU AND THE BASKET.

YOU SEE IT, YOU FIND IT.

SHOOT THE BALL.

OKAY.

A CIGARETTE AND A HANDSHAKE'S ABOUT ALL I GOT RIGHT NOW, PAL.

NOT QUITE.

YOU HAVE A SOUL.

THAT I'D TRADE FOR A SHOWER AND A JUG OF JACK.

THEN THE DEATH OF YOUR ENEMY YOU WOULD CONSIDER A BARGAIN.

YOU REALLY ARE FUCKED UP, YOU KNOW THAT ? [ Chuckles ]

BUT I DO LIKE THE WAY YOU THINK.

INDULGE ME, THEN.

HEY, ALEX, I'M REALLY SORRY ABOUT JOSH.

I KNOW HOW CLOSE YOU GUYS WERE.

YEAH.

WE WEREN'T AS CLOSE AS HE WANTED, AND NOW IT'S TOO--

ALEX, LISTEN TO ME.

WHAT HAPPENED TO JOSH IS NOT YOUR FAULT.

I THINK IT IS.

WHAT ?

[ Sighs ]

THERE WAS SOMETHING... WEIRD IN THE OPAL.

I THINK THAT WAS WHAT EXPLODED.

I THINK WHAT I GAVE JOSH IS WHAT KILLED HIM.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW CRAZY THAT SOUNDS ?

[ Laughs ] YES.

I KNOW EXACTLY HOW CRAZY IT SOUNDS. THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

[ Sighs ] DO YOU, UM-- DO YOU WANT ME TO CALL...

DR. MONTIGLIO AGAIN ?

NO.

I'M FINE.

I'M JUST UPSET.

YOU'RE NOT JUST UPSET.

YOU'RE IMAGINING THINGS, JUST LIKE THE LAST TIME.

THIS IS NOTHING LIKE THE LAST TIME, SHANNON.

WHY DON'T YOU GO TO BED ? I DON'T WANT YOU TO WORRY.

CAN YOU CAN THE BIG SISTER ACT FOR JUST ONE NIGHT ?

THE FIRE WAS YEARS AGO. YOU GOT ME OUT, OKAY ?

I GOT YOU OUT. I DIDN'T GET MOM OUT. I DIDN'T GET DAD OUT.

NOT "DIDN'T."

COULDN'T. COULD NOT.

NOT YOUR FAULT.

JUST LIKE JOSH IS NOT YOUR FAULT, ALEX.

YOU'VE GOT TO STOP BLAMING YOURSELF, OR THE WHOLE FUCKING THING IS GONNA START AGAIN.

THE THERAPY, THE NIGHTMARES, EVERYTHING.

NO, IT ISN'T.

IT'S NOTHING LIKE LAST TIME.

BUT SOMETHING'S GOING ON.

SOMETHING BAD.

I'M GONNA FIND OUT WHAT IT IS.

HELP ! HELP !

HELP ! ALEX ! HELP !

[ Gasps ]

READY TO PLAY, ALEX ?

[ Screams ]

[ Djinn ] I CAN SMELL YOUR FEAR.

[ Alex ] I'M LOOKING FOR A DOCKWORKER NAMED ETCHISON.

THAT'S HIM OVER THERE.

THAT GUY ?

MR. ETCHISON ?

SWEETHEART, YOU CAN CALL ME ANYTHING YOU LIKE.

PLEASE, I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR YOUR GAMES.

THAT'S A DAMN SHAME. COULD BE FUN.

OKAY, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE OPAL.

THE JEWEL ?

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

THAT'S ODD. YOUR FRIEND CLEGG KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT.

DON'T KNOW HIM, EITHER.

I THINK YOU DO.

MIDDLE-AGED GUY. RUNS A PAWNSHOP.

RATTED YOU OUT AT THE FIRST SNIFF OF A LAWSUIT.

ALL RIGHT. WHAT'S THE DEAL ? YOU A COP ?

NO. AND WE DON'T HAVE TO INVOLVE THEM IF YOU TELL ME WHERE YOU GOT IT.

OUT OF THAT STATUE AFTER THE ACCIDENT.

YOU MUST'VE SEEN IT ON THE NEWS. IT KILLED A GUY.

THE BEAUMONT PIECE ?

HOW SHOULD I KNOW ? THERE WAS SOME GUY HERE WHO BOUGHT IT. YEAH.

HEY, CLEGG GAVE ME A COUPLE HUNDRED.

DID I GET FUCKED ?

ROYALLY.

ALEXANDRA.

HOW NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

MR. BEAUMONT, I'M SO SORRY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED.

YES. IRREPLACEABLE. ONE OF A KIND.

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ED FINNEY, YOUR ASSISTANT, RIGHT ?

OH, YES. YES, OF COURSE.

RIGHT.

WELL, IF YOU'RE NOT TOO BROKEN UP ABOUT HIM,

I'D LIKE TO ASK A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SCULPTURE.

ANYTHING YOU WISH.

THE NEWSPAPERS SEEM MORE CONCERNED WITH THE DETAILS OF THE ACCIDENT.

THE CRANE OPERATOR.

THE DRUNKEN SWINE.

AND LESS CONCERNED ABOUT THE DETAILS OF THE STATUE ITSELF.

WAS IT BEJEWELED ?

NO. UNDECORATED.

A LIKENESS OF AHURA MAZDA, ONE OF THE FEW TO HAVE BEEN MADE...

AFTER THE ISLAMIC CONVERSION.

MM-HMM.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT. LET ME SHOW YOU SOMETHING.

YOU'LL BE INTERESTED IN THIS. ANY NEW TREASURES AT THE AUCTION HOUSE ?

[ Whistling ]

[ Screams ] JESUS ! ASSHOLE !

GOTCHA ! [ Laughs ]

WOW.

[ Beaumont ] MY ROOM OF LOST GODS.

ONCE WORSHIPED, NOW FORGOTTEN.

EVERY CULTURE OF ANCIENT HISTORY.

SEE THAT DOWN THERE ?

THAT WAS THE SPACE RESERVED FOR AHURA MAZDA.

WHAT EXACTLY IS AHURA MAZDA ?

IT'S THE OBJECTS...

I COLLECT, NOT THE THEOLOGIES THEY REPRESENT.

BUT FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH, HE WAS THE MONOTHEISTIC DEITY...

OF THE ZOROASTRIAN RELIGION.

SO HE WAS A GOD OF GOOD, THEN.

CERTAINLY.

INTERESTINGLY, THOUGH, LEGEND HAS IT...

THAT THE OPPOSING FORCE, IF YOU WILL,

WAS ACTUALLY HIS OWN SHADOW.

SO, IN A WAY, HE HIMSELF WAS THE SOURCE OF EVIL.

THERE'S SOMEONE AT THE UNIVERSITY I'D LIKE TO PUT YOU ONTO.

A SMART WOMAN. SHE'S DONE CATALOG DESCRIPTIONS FOR ME IN THE PAST.

SHE COULD BE OF SOME HELP, PROVIDED YOU CATCH HER IN A GOOD MOOD.

[ Whistling ]

WHO'S THE TEACHER'S PET, HUH ?

WHY ARE YOU WORKING IN THE DARK ?

WAIT A MINUTE. WHO ARE YOU ?

WHAT THE FUCK !

[ Growls ]

OH, MY GOD !

AM I TO UNDERSTAND...

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU WISH TO SEE ?

UH-HUH.

VERY WELL.

[ Shouting ] MY EYES !

MY EYES ! [ Groaning ]

OH, MY GOD ! I CAN'T SEE !

I CAN'T SEE ! YOU BASTARD !

[ Groaning ] MY EYES !

[ Groaning ]

MY EYES !

- [ Screaming ] - ALEX !

ALEX ! RAYMOND ! WHAT'S THE MATTER ?

UH--

I'M SORRY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

YOU FAINTED. CAN I GET YOU A DRINK OR SOMETHING ?

SOME WATER ?

NO.

[ Sighs ]

NO, I'M FINE.

GUESS I'M JUST UNDER A LOT OF STRESS.

BUT I'M FINE. HONESTLY.

HONESTLY ?

MMM.

THEN I HOPE YOU'LL BE WELL ENOUGH TO ATTEND MY PARTY.

THE ONE THAT WAS TO CELEBRATE MY ACQUISITION.

YOUR BOSS, MR. MERRITT, RECEIVED THE INVITATIONS.

YOU AND YOUR CHARMING SISTER SHALL BE MOST WELCOME.

THANK YOU. I'D LIKE TO,

BUT I MAY BE BUSY.

HMM.

[ Professor ] A LITTLE MORE. A LITTLE MORE. HOLD ON.

UH, BACK TWO FEET.

OKAY, PROFESSOR.

GOOD.

I TOLD THE DEAN'S OFFICE THE PAPERWORK WOULD BE THERE TOMORROW. I'M BUSY.

[ Student ] HOW ABOUT THIS ?

OKAY. GOOD.

YOU'RE MISTAKING ME FOR SOMEONE ELSE.

I'M ALEX. RAYMOND BEAUMONT MUST'VE CALLED YOU ABOUT ME.

YEAH. WHAT AN INSUFFERABLE PRICK THAT MAN IS.

STILL, IT'S NOT YOUR PROBLEM.

UNLESS, OF COURSE, YOU'RE STUPID ENOUGH TO BE WORKING FOR HIM.

NO.

OR SLEEPING WITH HIM ?

[ Laughs ] NO.

GOOD. THAT ESTABLISHES YOUR DISCERNING GOOD TASTE.

NO, NO, THAT'S NOT GONNA WORK. UPSTAGE.

[ Professor ] WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU ?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING UNTIL I CAN GET YOUR FULL ATTENTION.

I LIKE YOU.

I'M JUST INTERFERING HERE ANYWAY. THIS IS A CO-PRODUCTION.

FOLKLORE DEPARTMENT, THAT'S ME.

DRAMA DEPARTMENT, THAT'S NOT ME.

AS SOON AS PROFESSOR BENSON GETS HERE, I'M GONNA BE RUN OFF. COME ON.

THE STONE OF THE SECRET FIRE WAS FIRST WRITTEN ABOUT IN PERSIA...

AROUND 900 YEARS AGO.

A COURT SORCERER IS SAID TO HAVE IMPRISONED AN EVIL SPIRIT WITHIN IT.

AN EVIL SPIRIT ?

YES.

A CREATURE FROM THE SPACES BETWEEN THE WORLDS. A DJINN.

A DJINN ?

A GENIE ?

HOLD ON A MINUTE.

FORGET WHAT OUR CULTURE HAS MADE OF THE DJINN.

FORGET BARBARA EDEN, FORGET ROBIN WILLIAMS.

TO THE PEOPLES OF ANCIENT ARABIA, A DJINN WAS NEITHER CUTE NOR FUNNY.

IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY.

IT WAS THE FACE OF FEAR ITSELF.

♪ [ Rock ]

HOW'S IT LOOK ?

[ Man ] YOU TELL ME.

- WOW. - I'M GLAD YOU APPROVE.

UM, DO YOU WANT TO TRY SOMETHING ELSE ?

A DIFFERENT STYLE MAYBE ? TIGHTER ?

NO. I DON'T LIKE FEELING CONFINED. HAD ENOUGH OF THAT.

OKAY, THEN. FOLLOW ME.

PLEASURE.

WILL THIS BE CASH OR CHARGE, MR.-- ?

DEMAREST. NATHANIEL DEMAREST.

CALL ME NATHANIEL.

OKAY, NATHANIEL. CASH OR CHARGE ?

WHICH WOULD YOU PREFER ?

[ Laughs ] I DON'T KNOW. CASH ?

DONE.

OH.

THIS IS MY FIRST DAY IN YOUR WORLD,

ARIELLA.

I AM PLEASED TO SEE BEAUTY AS A CONSTANT.

DOES IT BOTHER YOU KNOWING THAT YOUR BEAUTY WILL FADE ?

THAT YOUR LOOKING GLASS WILL DAY BY DAY TELL YOU A LONG AND UNHAPPY STORY ?

WELL, I MEAN... THAT'S LIFE, RIGHT ?

IT HAPPENS TO ALL OF US, LIKE IT OR NOT.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO.

ASK. ASK AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

ASK FOR AN END TO CHANGE, AN END TO DECAY.

SAY, "I WISH TO BE BEAUTIFUL FOREVER."

I WISH TO BE BEAUTIFUL FOREVER.

PLEASURE DOING BUSINESS WITH YOU.

[ Djinn ] I'LL FIND YOU.

[ Professor ] WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO THIS SOME OTHER TIME ?

NO. NO, I'M--

[ Screams ]

GOD, I'M SORRY.

I WANTED PROFESSOR DERLETH TO CHECK OUT MY COSTUME.

OBVIOUSLY IT'S SCARY ENOUGH. GO BACK TO REHEARSAL.

THANKS.

YOU ALL RIGHT ?

YES.

THE DJINN-- THE WORD IS BOTH PLURAL AND SINGULAR, BY THE WAY,

ARE A RACE CREATED AFTER THE ANGELS BUT BEFORE MANKIND.

POWERFUL, MAGICAL, EVIL.

EVIL ?

I THOUGHT THAT GENIES GRANTED WISHES. THAT'S WHAT THE MYTHS SAY.

THEY'RE OBLIGED TO.

BUT THEIR TRUE MOTIVATION IS ALWAYS USURPING THIS WORLD FOR THEMSELVES.

I NEVER HEARD THAT. WHAT I HEARD WAS--

SWEETENED FABLES.

OVER THE CENTURIES, FAITH BECAME FAIRY TALES.

WE AVOIDED OUR TERROR BY TAMING IT INTO FICTIONS,

INVENTING STORIES OF MAGICAL LAMPS TO ROCK OUR CHILDREN TO SLEEP.

AND THE OLD STORIES ARE DARKER.

MUCH DARKER.

IN THE OLD WRITINGS, THE DJINN IS EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE EVER FEARED.

AN UTTERLY INHUMAN RACE OF BEINGS...

THAT MEAN US HARM.

OLDER THAN OUR OLDEST HISTORY, MORE POWERFUL THAN OUR WORST IMAGININGS.

AND DRIVEN BY AN ANCIENT AND ENDLESS MALEVOLENCE.

[ Officer ] WE KNOW WE HAVE THE RIGHT GUY.

YOU MIGHT AS WELL MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF.

YOU SHUT UP AND ANSWER THE MAN'S QUESTIONS.

DETECTIVE NATHANSON ?

YEAH ?

I WAS TOLD DOWNSTAIRS YOU'RE IN CHARGE OF THE AICKMAN INVESTIGATION.

I WAS.

THE CASE IS CLOSED,

AS FAR AS HOMICIDE IS CONCERNED, UNLESS YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING TO TELL ME.

I WAS HOPING YOU HAD SOMETHING TO TELL ME.

OH, REALLY. WHAT WOULD THAT BE ?

NOTHING MUCH.

AN ADDRESS. A WOMAN CALLED ALEXANDRA.

WHAT THE HELL MAKES YOU THINK I'D GIVE YOU HER ADDRESS ?

WHAT'S YOUR INTEREST IN THIS CASE, ANYWAY ?

- WHY DO YOU KEEP LOOKING OVER THERE ? - SEE THAT GUY ?

GUILTY AS SIN. WALKED ON SEVEN COUNTS.

WALKED EACH TIME. MADE OF TEFLON. MAKES ME SICK.

- YOU KNOW WHAT I'D LIKE ? - I'D LOVE TO KNOW.

JUST ONCE I'D LIKE IT TO BE EASY.

I'D LIKE TO NAIL THAT PRICK DEAD-TO-RIGHTS. MURDER ONE. EVERYBODY'S AN EYE WITNESS.

[ Screaming ]

[ Gunshots, Screams ]

HOLD HIM ! HOLD HIM DOWN !

[ Officer ] GET SOME CUFFS OVER THERE !

ALEXANDRA. [ Eerie Echoing ]

- [ Nathanson ] HEY, YOU ! - BE STILL, BOY ! COME ON.

HOLD HIM DOWN !

[ Screaming ]

[ Gunshots ]

- SHIT. - [ Groaning ]

[ Alex Reading To Herself ] "THE STONE OF THE SECRET FIRE...

"CREATED BY A GREAT PERSIAN SORCERER TO SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THE DJINN...

"IS AS MUCH A CURSE AS A BLESSING BECAUSE IT IS A DOORWAY BETWEEN THE WORLDS.

"AND LIKE ALL DOORS, CAN BE OPENED FROM EITHER SIDE.

"A DJINN, ONCE FREED, CAN USE THE STONE TO BRING FORTH HIS RACE...

"TO OUR REALITY, AND OVERWHELM HUMANITY.

"BUT THE DJINN MUST FIRST CHARGE THE STONE BY GATHERING SOULS OF HUMANS...

"WHO HAVE HAD A SINGLE WISH GRANTED.

"HE MUST THEN ACTIVATE IT BY FINDING THE HUMAN WHO WOKE HIM INTO THIS WORLD,

"AND GRANTING HIM THREE WISHES.

"THE SOLE LIMITATION TO THE DJINN'S POWER...

IS THAT IT MAY ONLY BE USED IN THE SERVICE OF WISHES."

[ Knocking At Door ]

SORRY, SIR, WE'RE CLOSED.

I'M TRYING TO LOCATE AN EMPLOYEE.

THERE'S NO ONE HERE. JUST THE BOSS.

FINE, I'LL TALK TO THE BOSS. OPEN THE DOORS, PLEASE.

IT'S APPOINTMENTS ONLY AFTER BUSINESS HOURS.

YOU'RE BECOMING A BOTHER, LITTLE MAN.

OPEN THE DOORS.

OKAY, PAL, IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GO.

GET OUT OF MY WAY.

I DON'T THINK SO, ASSHOLE.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW FRUSTRATING IT IS TO HAVE UNLIMITED POWER...

AND ONLY BE ABLE TO USE IT WHEN SOME WORM ASKS YOU FOR SOMETHING ?

I CAN'T SAY THAT I DO. CAN'T SAY I GIVE A SHIT, EITHER.

ASK ME FOR SOMETHING.

OKAY. I WANT YOU TO LEAVE.

NO. NO.

I HAVE TO GET INSIDE.

YOU'D HAVE TO GO THROUGH ME.

[ Chuckles ] AND THAT IS SOMETHING I WOULD LOVE TO SEE.

[ Screaming ]

[ Screaming ]

WHO THE HELL ARE YOU ? HOW'D YOU GET IN HERE ?

THE GUARD OPENED UP FOR ME.

I WONDER IF I COULD ASK YOUR HELP.

I'M LOOKING FOR ALEXANDRA AMBERSON.

ALEX-- SH-SHE WAS OFF TODAY.

- I ASKED YOU WHO YOU WERE. - SOMEONE SHE'S EXPECTING.

PERHAPS YOU'D BE SO KIND AS TO GIVE ME HER HOME ADDRESS.

WAIT A MINUTE. IF SHE KNOWS YOU, HOW COME YOU DON'T HAVE HER ADDRESS ?

I SAID SHE'S EXPECTING ME. I DIDN'T SAY SHE KNOWS ME.

OH. WELL, IN THAT CASE, UH,

MAYBE YOU BETTER E-MAIL HER BECAUSE I CAN'T GIVE YOU HER ADDRESS.

YOU UNDERSTAND.

PERFECTLY.

WOULD YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW WHERE SHE IS RIGHT NOW ?

YES, I WOULD.

- WOULD YOU TELL ME ? - NO, I WOULDN'T.

[ Laughing ]

HEY, THAT'S A VERY VALUABLE PIECE !

REALLY ?

WOULD YOU LIKE IT TO BE ONE HUNDRED TIMES AS VALUABLE ?

[ Laughing ] WOULD I LIKE IT TO BE A HUNDRED TIMES MORE VALUABLE ?

YES.

[ Nick ] HOLY SHIT.

ARE YOU DAVID COPPERFIELD ? HOW DID YOU DO THAT ?

OLD FAMILY SECRET.

WHERE IS ALEXANDRA ?

AHH ! WELL, I'M SORRY...

BUT I DON'T REALLY FEEL, UM... COMFORTABLE TELLING YOU.

WHAT WOULD MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE ? NAME IT.

- UH, WHAT'S MY LIMIT ? - YOUR IMAGINATION.

WELL, I'M NOT A GREEDY MAN. HOW 'BOUT A MILLION DOLLARS ?

DONE.

OKAY, LET'S SEE.

WAIT A MINUTE. YOU'VE FORGOTTEN TO FILL IN THE BENEFICIARY.

HOW SILLY. IT'S MY SON NICK.

HI. UM, CAN I COME IN ?

THE STONE IS CHARGED... CHARGED WITH PEOPLE'S SOULS, FED WITH THEIR FEAR.

NOW THE DJINN IS AFTER ME. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT THE HELL TO DO.

THIS IS THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. DON'T YOU THINK THAT SOUNDS UNLIKELY ?

WOULD YOU LIKE SOMETHING TO DRINK ?

NO, THANK YOU.

WELL, I WOULD.

THIS IS A NICE CABINET, ISN'T IT ? YOUR BOSS WOULD LIKE THIS.

MY BOSS ? I NEVER TOLD YOU WHO I WORKED FOR.

YOU DIDN'T ?

THEN HOW WOULD I KNOW ?

MAYBE BEAUMONT MENTIONED IT.

OH, YEAH. HE DID.

LET ME EXPLAIN.

YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY LOOKING FOR SOME PIECE OF MAGIC, SOME SPELL...

TO GET RID OF THIS HYPOTHETICAL DJINN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, RIGHT ?

YES.

THEY CERTAINLY EXISTED.

ARE YOU COLD ?

NO, I'M FINE.

- WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO PUT THE HEAT ON ? - NO. JUST PLEASE CONTINUE.

ALL RIGHT.

WHERE WAS I ? OH, YEAH.

SPELLS. SORCERERS.

ALEXANDRA, YOU WERE BORN INTO AN AGE OF REASON, AN AGE OF SCIENCE.

ALL THE SORCERERS ARE DEAD.

AND ALL THE SPELLS LOST TO TIME.

BUT THE DJINN ITSELF--

THE DJINN, IF IT EXISTED,

WOULD BE ALL THERE WAS.

IMAGINE THAT.

THE ONLY MAGICAL THING IN A RATIONALIST WORLD.

A VULNERABLE WORLD OF DISBELIEF...

WHERE NO REASON WOULD EVER RESCUE YOU,

NOR SCIENCE SAVE YOU.

[ Laughing ]

HE WOULD HAVE A FINE OLD TIME, WOULDN'T HE ?

THIS ISN'T A JOKE.

NO, IT'S NOT FUNNY.

ARE YOU HUNGRY ?

I'M NOT HUNGRY, I'M NOT THIRSTY, I'M NOT--

WHY DO YOU KEEP TRYING TO DO THINGS FOR M--

[ Laughing ]

I'M SORRY.

I GUESS I'M JUST A LITTLE TENSE.

I GUESS.

BUT I'M FINE.

ALL RIGHT.

WHERE WERE WE ? OH, YES.

NO SPELLS. NO HOPE.

THERE'S NO HOPE.

NO MAGIC.

I'LL HAVE TO RELY ON MYSELF.

[ Laughing ]

MATCH WITS WITH A CREATURE OLDER THAN TIME ?

MATCH WITS WITH A PRINCE OF THE DARK DOMINIONS ?

PIT YOUR TINY TWENTIETH CENTURY BRAIN...

AGAINST ONE WHO WALKED THE SPACES BETWEEN THE WORLDS...

AND TROD THE WINGS OF ANGELS BENEATH HIS CONQUERING FEET ?

OH, ALEXANDRA !

YOU'RE A DELIGHT, REALLY.

YOU ARE. [ Laughing ]

I'M GLAD I CAN AMUSE YOU.

OH. I HURT YOUR FEELINGS. I'M SORRY.

LET ME MAKE IT UP TO YOU.

WHAT CAN I DO ?

I MUST BE GOING NOW.

SIT DOWN !

[ Gasps ]

PLEASE... SIT DOWN.

WHERE'S WENDY ?

[ Demarest ] BEDROOM. BUT I WOULDN'T GO IN THERE IF I WERE YOU.

- MESSY. I NEEDED HER FACE. - YOU KILLED HER ?

I CAN'T KILL ANYONE, NOT UNLESS THEY WISH ME TO.

YOUR RESEARCH SHOULD'VE TOLD YOU THAT.

SHE DIDN'T WISH TO BE DEAD,

YOU LYING SACK OF SHIT !

I SHOWED HER MY TRUE FACE.

HER REACTION WASN'T VERY FLATTERING.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, SHE GOT DOWN RIGHT HYSTERICAL !

I MERELY ASKED HER IF SHE WISHED TO BE RELEASED FROM HER FEAR.

YOU'RE A DANGEROUS PERSON TO KNOW, ALEXANDRA.

YOUR SCIENTIST FRIEND, YOUR BOSS,

THE POLICEMAN, WENDY.

BY THE BY,

WHERE IS THAT TASTY LITTLE SISTER OF YOURS TODAY ?

IF YOU HARM SHANNON, I'LL KILL YOU.

SPARE ME, CHILD.

BEHOLD MY TRUE FACE.

OH, MY GOD.

YES.

THE SHIT JUST HIT THE FAN, DIDN'T IT ?

LET'S GET THIS OVER WITH, SHALL WE ?

MAKE YOUR WISHES !

THREE WISHES, ALEXANDRA.

DOESN'T THAT INTRIGUE YOU... JUST A LITTLE ?

ANYTHING YOU WANT.

ANYTHING ?

YOU ASK FOR ANYTHING,

I MUST GRANT IT.

A TRIP TO THE MOON.

A VISIT TO PHARAOH'S EGYPT.

WHAT'D HAPPEN IF I WISHED YOU DEAD ?

WHY, HOW REMARKABLY ORIGINAL, ALEXANDRA.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.

I'LL GIVE YOU ONE FREE WISH.

A SAMPLE. GET YOU INTO THE SPIRIT OF THE GAME.

ALL RIGHT.

I WANT YOU TO DESTROY YOURSELF.

BLOW YOUR BRAINS OUT... RIGHT NOW !

VERY WELL.

THAT WHICH IS ETERNAL CANNOT DIE.

BUT IF IT'S ANY CONSOLATION, SWEET ALEX,

THAT HURT LIKE HELL !

NOW, MAKE YOUR THREE WISHES.

I ALWAYS TELL MY GIRLS TO KNOW THEIR OPPONENT.

SO,

I THINK I WILL MAKE A WISH.

GOOD !

I WISH...

TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING ?

GRANTING YOUR WISH !

[ Eerie Howling ]

YOU WISH TO KNOW WHAT I AM, DO YOU ?

I AM THIS !

THE CRY OF THE ABANDONED CHILD.

THE WHIMPER OF THE WHIPPED BEAST.

I AM THE FACE THAT STARES BACK AT YOU FROM THE SHADOW.

THE HOLLOWNESS AT THE HEART OF ALL YOUR HOPES, ALEXANDRA.

I AM DESPAIR.

[ Growling ]

- [ Mumbles ] - [ Growls ]

- [ Growls ] - [ Growls ]

- SHIT ! - [ Growls ]

CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

[ Wicked Laughing ]

- [ Growls ] - [ Gasps ]

[ Shannon ] ALEX !

[ Alex ] SHANNON ?

[ Screams ]

SO, HOW DO YOU LIKE ME SO FAR ?

I DIDN'T WISH FOR THIS. YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE OUTSIDE. YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HERE.

I AM BOUND BY THAT WHICH I BIND.

CONTAINED BY THAT WHICH I CONTAIN.

THIS ISN'T WHAT I WANTED.

WELL THEN, WORD YOUR WISHES MORE CAREFULLY.

[ Growling ]

[ Gasps ]

ALEXANDRA,

YOU LEFT YOUR SISTER ALL ALONE.

NOT TO WORRY. I'LL FIND HER AND KEEP HER COMPANY.

DON'T YOU GO NEAR HER.

I MIGHT HAVE TO.

YOU KNOW HOW PERSUASIVE THE PAIN OF LOVED ONES CAN BE.

NO !

[ Growls ]

STOP ME THEN. WISH YOURSELF BACK.

I WISH I WAS IN MY APARTMENT... RIGHT NOW, WITHOUT YOU.

SHANNON ?

SHANNON, WHERE ARE YOU ? WE'VE GOT TO GET OUTTA HERE.

[ Phone Rings ]

[ Demarest On Machine ] TWO WISHES IN. WE'RE SO CONNECTED NOW.

WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE I'LL BE. WHEREVER YOU ARE, I WILL FIND YOU.

FUCK YOU !

[ Brakes Squealing ]

[ Screams ]

GOING MY WAY ?

[ Thunderclaps ]

EXCUSE ME. IS YOUR NAME ON THE LIST ?

YOU HAVE GOT TO HELP ME. THIS GUY'S CRAZY. HE'S DANGEROUS.

HE BROKE MY WINDOW. HE IS TRYING TO KILL ME.

EXCUSE ME, SIR.

IS MR. BEAUMONT EXPECTING YOU ?

I ASKED YOU A QUESTION, SIR.

AM I EXPECTED ? YES.

I WOULDN'T BE HERE IF IT WEREN'T FOR MR. BEAUMONT.

THAT SOUNDS GOOD, BUT IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE AN INVITATION.

I DON'T CARE WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE. STEP ASIDE.

LET ME MAKE THIS REAL SIMPLE FOR YOU.

IF YOUR NAME ISN'T ON THE LIST, YOU DON'T GET IN.

I'VE DEALT WITH YOUR TYPE BEFORE.

MISTER, YOU NEVER EVEN MET MY TYPE BEFORE.

I AM GOING THROUGH THAT DOOR, AND YOU WILL NOT STOP ME.

IS THAT PERFECTLY CLEAR, DOORMAN ?

DOORMAN ? THE NAME IS VALENTINE.

JOHNNY VALENTINE.

YOU REMEMBER THAT WHEN THEY ASK HOW YOU LOST YOUR EYE.

FORGIVE MY BRASHNESS. MY EAGERNESS FOR THE ENDGAME HAS SKEWED MY JUDGMENT.

- I'LL MAKE YOU A DEAL. - I DON'T MAKE DEALS !

WHAT ELSE DO YOU HAVE TO DO ?

TONIGHT ? I KEEP ASSHOLES OUT OF PARTIES.

AND WHAT ABOUT TOMORROW ?

SURELY YOU'RE NOT TELLING ME THIS IS ALL YOU CAN DO...

[ Chuckles ] NOR ALL YOU EVER HAVE DONE !

IT CERTAINLY ISN'T ALL YOU'VE EVER WISHED FOR.

TELL ME THE TRUTH. DON'T YOU GROW WEARY OF THIS JOB DAY IN AND DAY OUT ?

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO ESCAPE TO A MORE EXCITING PROFESSION ?

WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH YOU ?

EVERYTHING.

TAKE THE CHANCE, JOHNNY. ANSWER THE QUESTION.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO ESCAPE ?

YEAH.

AS YOU WISH.

HOUDINI DID IT IN TWO-AND-A-HALF MINUTES.

EXCUSE ME.

EXCUSE ME.

EXCUSE ME. EXCUSE ME.

SHANNON ?

I'M SORRY.

HERE YOU ARE.

I DIDN'T KNOW YOU WERE COMING. WHAT ARE YOU DOING ?

I'M TRYING TO GET YOU OUT OF HERE. WE GOTTA GO.

GET OFF OF ME.

WE HAVE GOT TO LEAVE NOW. TRUST ME.

NO. TRUST ME. YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVEN'T SEEN BEAUMONT'S NEW FRIEND.

YOU REMEMBER THE GUY FROM THE BASKETBALL COURT ?

SH-SHANNON ? SHANNON ?

I WAS AT CINDY'S PARTY,

THE ONE WHERE THEY SERVED THE DIVORCE PAPERS IN THE MIDDLE OF DINNER.

IT WAS HYSTERICAL. PEOPLE TALKED ABOUT IT FOR A YEAR.

REALLY ?

I REMEMBER A CERTAIN POTENTATE WHOSE LAST PARTY WAS TALKED ABOUT FOR CENTURIES.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN ? IT WENT DOWN IN HISTORY ?

OH, YES.

GOD, HOW I'D LOVE TO HOST A PARTY LIKE THAT.

SHANNON !

AS YOU WISH !

YOU CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH ME.

[ Gasping, Screams ]

- [ Screams ] - [ Gasping ]

[ Screaming, Shouting ]

[ Screaming ]

NO ! NO, NO, NO !

[ Gasps ] WHA--

[ Gasps ] M-MY GOD !

NOT YET, HUMAN.

SOON ! VERY SOON I WILL BE.

[ Screaming ]

SHANNON !

ALEX !

SHANNON ?

[ Screaming ]

SHANNON !

PERIMETER ! EVERYBODY GET TO THE HOUSE NOW !

SHANNON !

WE HAVE UNFINISHED BUSINESS.

IT'S GONNA STAY UNFINISHED.

LISTEN TO THEIR SCREAMS, CHILD.

LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF THEIR AGONY.

YOU BASTARD !

YOU CAN SAVE THEM, ALEXANDRA.

JUST WISH IT AWAY.

NO, I WON'T. I CAN'T.

MY PATIENCE WEARS THIN.

[ Laughing ]

WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ? KILL ME ?

WHERE'S YOUR THIRD WISH THEN ?

I DON'T NEED YOU DEAD, ALEXANDRA.

I JUST NEED YOU TO WISH YOU WERE.

RUN !

RUN !

RAYMOND.

ALEX, WHAT IS GOING ON ?

WHERE'S SHANNON ? RAYMOND, HAVE YOU SEEN SHANNON ?

[ Gagging ]

RAYMOND ? RAYMOND ! OH, MY GOD !

RAYMOND ?

MISS, COME WITH US. WE'RE TRYING TO GET THIS UNDER CONTROL.

GET OUT OF HERE ! GET OUT ! HE'S COMING !

GET BACK !

DON'T !

[ Groans ]

PLEASE, WE HAVE GOT TO GO.

WE ARE NOT GONNA DO ANY GOOD !

[ Cackling ]

[ Growls ]

SHANNON !

[ Panting ]

NO MORE DOORS.

NO MORE ROOMS. NO MORE EXCUSES.

MAKE YOUR WISH.

I WILL NOT WISH.

REALLY ?

NOT EVEN WHEN I SHOW YOU THE LATEST ADDITION TO BEAUMONT'S COLLECTION ?

- THE FINAL FLOWERING OF HIS WISH. - WHAT ?

A LITTLE MASTERPIECE OF MY OWN. I CALL IT...

"SISTER, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME ?"

OH, GOD !

- SHANNON ! - RATHER A GOOD LIKENESS, DON'T YOU THINK ?

I ESPECIALLY RELISH THE TRAPPED ANIMAL LOOK IN THE EYES.

YOU VICIOUS SON OF A BITCH !

YOU DON'T APPROVE ?

ALL RIGHT THEN, FUCK IT !

YOU KNOW WHAT I SAY:

"IF YOU CAN'T BEAT 'EM, BURN THEM, BABY."

ALEX !

ALEX !

NO ! SHANNON !

REMIND YOU OF SOMETHING ?

[ Chuckles ]

MAKE YOUR WISH.

I SUGGEST YOU DO IT QUICKLY, DEAR.

[ Groaning ]

OH, GOD.

[ Screaming ]

[ Alex's Voice ] STILLNESS.

- I WISH-- - YES ?

- [ Groaning ] - ALEX !

- I WISH-- - WISH ON, CHILD.

[ Alex's Voice ] STILLNESS.

I WISH MICKEY TORELLI HADN'T BEEN DRINKING ON THE JOB TWO DAYS AGO.

NO !

NO !

NO !

NO ! IMPOSSIBLE !

NOT BY--

[ Wailing, Howling ]

NO !

AGHHH !

WISH YOU'D NEVER MET ME ?

[ Etchison ] I'M SURPRISED YOU'RE HERE IN PERSON, MR. BEAUMONT.

PAPERWORK'S COMPLETELY IN ORDER.

I'VE WAITED 10 YEARS FOR THIS PIECE.

HEY, MICKEY, WATCH IT !

WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT IS ? COCONUTS ?

THAT'S PRE-ISLAMIC STUFF ! NOW SLOWLY, THANKS.

OKAY, GOT IT.

OH, YES, THIS WILL MAKE SOMEONE A VERY NICE ENGAGEMENT GIFT.

AT THE VERY LEAST, A NICE ENGAGEMENT GIFT.

YEAH.

IT'S GOT AN INTERESTING LOOK.

HI.

YOU'RE LATE.

SORRY.

I'LL GIVE YOU $2,000 FOR IT.

SO WHAT ARE WE DOING TONIGHT ?

"WE" ?

OH, WHAT'S THE MATTER, JOSH ?

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE COMPLICATIONS ?

YOU KNOW WHAT ?

I THINK THIS COULD HELP.

DOES THAT HELP ?
