Satanists: We Christ's children.
Jonathan Corbis: What is thy purpose?
Satanists: Purpose of soul!
Jonathan Corbis: Has it been prepared?
High Priest: It has.
Jonathan Corbis: [points to Mark Preston] Then I command this soul to be purified by fire and water.
[Two satanist drag Mark to the altar]
Jonathan Corbis: O Mighty light and burning flame of comfort, enter this body and cleanse it of its unworthy soul.
[Corbis holds a wooden voodoo doll containing Mark's soul, to which he sets it onto the firery torch]
Mark Preston: [Screaming] AAAAAH!
Jonathan Corbis: Burn!
[Mark continues screaming in agony]

[Corbis holds Mark's scarred chest as Mark, in extreme pain, moans and wails as his soul is sent to the Devil's Rain]

Jonathan Corbis: [chants another Latin prayer] Open wide the mysteries of your creation unto this soul.
[Mark, with his eyes now gone, is now converted into a lapdog puppet of Satan]
Jonathan Corbis: Be friendly unto him, for I am the same, the true worshipper of the highest and most exalted King of Hell.
