Short Summary

Mina, on her morning walk, stops in a park to enjoy the morning when she is interrupted by an annoying visitor. A Murder of Crows gathers, and because Mina is irritated at her unwelcomed visitor, the Murder pecks the man to death. The event is recorded in Mina's diary, which we are reading.

Mina, youthfully restored, and exposing elongated canines, is set afire by a flamethrower. At the same time, Quincey, shrieking grief for his mother, transforms into a hideous bat-winged creature. The creature is decapitated, and its bat-faced head rolls to a stop, sizzling at his father's feet.

Development Pitch

Having had to drink the Count's blood, 20 years later, Mina Harker is growing younger as her son rapidly ages into a version of his true bloodline. It's a great follow-up story, a whatever-happened-to-these-people story, and why. This story would make an excellent contained film like "Crimson Peak" or a limited series like "AHS."
