EXT. CENTRAL PARK -- SAME TIME
Louis enters a long dark pedestrian tunnel.
INSIDE THE TUNNEL
A gang of MUGGERS is smoking something in a weird pipelike device. One of them sees the approaching silhouette of Louis and hisses to his cohorts. The others all look and slowly begin to fan out across the width of the tunnel.
He is staring straight ahead and entirely focused on his destination as the muggers approach and confront him. He stops. They are deliberately blocking his path.
|Okay ... give me.|
Louis blinks stupidly.
|Are you the Gatekeeper?|
|Come on. You want me to stick you? Come on.|
|I am Vinz Clortho. I am the Keymaster. Do you bar my way?|
|Are you crazy, man? You don't give, Jino's gonna rip you, man. Nobody gets by Jino.|
|Do you bar my way?|
|Yeah. We bar your way.|
His eyes widen, he inhales deeply, then opens his mouth and roars. Irridescent lights pour out of his mouth.
They scream and run, horrified and disgusted by Louis' unearthly display.
