Throwback Thursday: Sunshine’s Night of Darkness, Scene 10
SUNSHINE’S NIGHT OF DARKNESS
Synopsis: It’s Sunshine’s first day of work in security at the P.U.R.E Corporation and all she wants to do is make it through orientation, but first she’s got to fill out a name tag requisition form, fit her uniform, meet a cute computer geek … oh, and save her fellow employees from genetically-mutated, blood-lusting vampires.
Notes: All work is registered with the WGC & the WGA.

INT. LAB 17, RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, P.U.R.E CORPORATION – LATER
Leila sits hooked into various machines, one of which looks like it cycles blood. Dixon toggles through a series of windows and programs on a laptop computer.
… DNA can be resequenced. It remembers its original pattern, so we reshuffle to reflect … thirty?
(still a little unsure)
Right … and refresh and recharge all your blood. We have to wait for reabsorption –
I’m not interested in details just outcome.
Well, it’s important you understand –
Youth, beauty, sex, money, power. I’m only missing the former, and I expect you to provide it without cluttering my mind with your science.
Ummm … all right. Well … Side effects?
Sensitivity to light. Um, your eyes and skin could be sensitive to sunshine, heat, so stay out of direct contact. And, ah … well, death.
I do read your reports, whether I like to or not.
Oh, good, good –
Dixon hits the space bar and a sequence runs on the computer.
You should feel drowsy and then …
Leila’s eyes bat close. Blood fills the cycling canister and then pumps through various tubing into various machines until a bloody web of plastic tubing forms around Leila.
