Question: Write a sad, creepy, and scary alternative ending to Dark Shadows (2012 film) with the vampire named Barnabas Collins actually being truly evil and wanted world domination.
As Barnabas Collins lay helpless against the sunlight streaming through an open cathedral window, the townsfolk cautiously back away, expecting to see a repeat of events that had unfolded centuries before. This time, however, Barnabas is not weakened by the light. Instead, he raises up, eyes radiating with an unholy crimson hue. They gasp in fear as their minds grapple with the impossibility that this vampire not only thrives in the light, but also becomes stronger and more menacing. "No longer shall I be the pawn of the living!" Barnabas roars as shadows wrap themselves around him, forming an obsidian throne. The townsfolk, paralyzed with fear, watch aghast as this once-tormented soul morphs into a living nightmare. In his quest for domination, Barnabas uses his enhanced vampiric powers to take control of other inhabitants of Collinsport, turning them into his walking puppets, their eyes losing their life spark, replaced with a vacant, hollow look. They become his followers, devoid of free will, chanting his name in a macabre testament to his reign. Meanwhile, the love interest, Victoria, cowers in the darkness of Barnabas' grand manor. She was once his hope for redemption, his beacon of love in a world that seemed lost to him. But now, she is just another pawn in his malevolent game. Tears streaming down her face, Victoria grabs a knife and takes one last look at the portrait of Barnabas when he was human, a stark contrast to the monster he had become. She vows to put an end to this nightmare, aware that her love is the only weapon capable of penetrating Barnabas' icy exterior. That night, Victoria finds him in the grand hall of Collins' Manor, surrounded by his dread servants. There is a cruel satisfaction on his face; he believes he has won. But Victoria's love was stronger, her spirit fiercer than any creature of darkness. She plunges the specially crafted silver dagger through his heart. The monstrous form of Barnabas writhes in agonizing pain and then stills. The townsfolk, free from his spell, blink their eyes in confusion. But did the monster truly perish? As the life drains from Barnabas' mighty, monstrous form, his lips curl into a cryptic smile. Just before the life fades from his eyes, they flash one final time with that same malignant crimson hue. Is this truly the end of Barnabas Collins, the vampire? Or might he rise back, biding his time like he did for more than two centuries, waiting for his moment to rule the world once again? The ending is left to the eerie whispering wind in the town of Collinsport, leaving everyone in a constant state of unease and dread.
