Alone in the Dark (2005) (part 4 of 8)
After Carnby shoots a meaningful glance at the cylinder on his desk, we are back on the Bounty… I mean, Hudgens’ nameless ship. We learn the captain has really been exercising his brain when he says, “If the container is made of solid gold, whatever is inside must be worth a fortune!”
Hudgens, blissfully ignorant, just says: “You have no idea.” Captain: “But I’m looking forward to finding out,” and with that, big shock, the crew starts beating the shit out of Hudgens. Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! But then again, wouldn’t it have made more sense to do this while they were still out at sea?
Okay, standard operating procedure for a scene like this. Hudgens yells, “You’re making a terrible mistake,” the greedy guys don’t want to listen, etc. etc. Boy, I wonder if there’s something really dangerous in that container!
