We're on the L already, where is the month going? :) Welcome to my blog for day 12 of the AtoZChallenge. I have two relatively un-scary ghosts for you today, although I do admit to the first one frightening the stuffing out of me when I was a lot younger.
The Librarian (Ghostbusters)Ghostbusters, New York is plagued by many, many fictional phantoms, from ghostly taxi drivers to a giant marshmallow man. My favourite of these is the Librarian.
She is a free-roaming, vaporous, full torso apparition who keeps things tidy in the New York City Public Library. Beware those who break the library's rules.
Normally she looks like a sweet old lady, but when annoyed she can turn into a nasty phantom to get her message across.
Eleanor was murdered by a rare book collector who wanted some of the books in her care. This is why she became a ghost.
I rather like the idea that Eleanor continues to look after her library in the hereafter.
Ray Lynskey (The Frighteners)
Ray Lynskey (Peter Dobson) is the health nut husband of Dr Lucy Linskey (Trini Alvarado), a woman targeted by Frank Bannister (Michael J. Fox) in his scheme to convince people their houses are haunted and he can get rid of the nuisance ... for a price.
Bannister uses real ghosts which he can see since the car accident the ended his career as an architect and left his wife dead.
Ray is the victim of a murder, but it looks like a heart attack. In fact he is the victim of another ghost, a grim reaper figure that seems to be mixed up in murders all over town. Ray is as annoying dead as he was alive, but in the end shows his metal by standing up to the other ghost while trying to save Lucy, even though he is thoroughly out matched on the supernatural front.
Do you have any fictional phantoms that scared you as kids, but just seem funny now?
