The sun is setting. A young man, Lou, is sitting next to a re-opened grave, hurriedly preparing an assortment of objects; a mortar and pestle, salts, flowers and a watch, taking cue from a leather-bound book full of notes and hand-drawn diagrams. He places the items on and around a recently deceased corpse that he has pulled out of the grave. It is his older brother, Jack. He whispers an incantation into Jack’s ear, and smashes the watch with a small rock. Nothing. Suddenly his brother springs to life, and they both laugh incredulously at what has happened. The spell has worked.
