Scene 9

The Power of Advertising

  • The Maitlands are up in the attic when Lydia approaches with the skeleton key.
  • Adam thinks the door's locked, but then he hears Lydia turning the key and he and Barbara rush over to keep her from opening the door.
  • As they're blocking the door, the TV suddenly comes on.
  • It's a commercial for Betelgeuse. He's dressed as a cowboy and he's advertising himself as "the afterlife's leading bio-exorcist."
  • After the commercial, the TV turns itself off and Lydia, who could hear the sounds inside the attic, tries the key again.
  • Adam grabs a knitting needle and pushes the key right out of the keyhole. They're actually getting pretty good at this scary ghost thing.
