TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES ADVENTURES
They go into another room dimly lit by flickering candles. Inside, an unusual seance is in session.
We are about to participate in a seance...Madame Leota is assembling all spirits, they are dying to meet you...hmhmhmahahahahaah...
Madame Leota, the medium, is quite unique. She is truly a disembodied spirit: a mere talking head inside a misty crystal ball. As she invokes the spirits, objects float around the room in respond to her commands.
MADAME LEOTA <Calls to the spirit world to make contact>
Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat. Call in the spirits wherever they're at. <Moans & cries fill the air> Rap on a table, it's time to respond. Send us a message from somewhere beyond. <Slow knocks on tables> Goblins and ghouls from last Halloween. Awaken the spirits with your tambourine! <Tambourine rattles & shakes overhead> Creepies and crawlies, toads in a pond. Let there be music from regions beyond. <Instruments play a haunting melody> Wizards and witches wherever you dwell, give us a hint by ringing a bell. <Bell jingles & jangles>
BAXTER <He spots something>
Master, something's moving there in the corner.
A shimmering green shape materializes into view hovering in midair before the stunned villains in their Doombuggy.
It looks like smoke, here's another one.
Are those real spooks? <Curious>
Yes, ghosts take on whatever forms they choose. Whether it be human, mist or fog, smoke or invisible.
Very interesting. But they remind me of movie magic, special effects.
Well...that's how they create ghosts or phantoms in films.
Wowsers, <Rolls eyes behind faceplate> I never knew that.
Duh? <Looks confused>
Come now...we must leave this cozy little circle...For the spirits have received your sympathetic vibrations and are beginning to materialize...
The Ghost Host leads the Syndicate through another doorway and up a short spiral staircase that leads onto a balcony overlooking the grand ballroom. As the villains stare over the railing into the room below, none of them can believe what they see!!! A party is taking place, one of the strangest parties they've ever seen. There is a long dining table covered with decayed food and wilted flowers, spiderwebs hanging everywhere. It seems to be a birthday party and when a birthday ghost blows out the candles on a cake several other ghosts disappear. They reappear & applaud the party guest of honor for extinguishing the candles in one breath. Those spirits seated around the table are chatting merrily & laughing while drinking wine. High above, overlooking the dining table hangs a crystal chandelier with candles and...ghosts playing around on it! Two spirits seated side by side, arms around one another and smiles on their faces, hold glasses of wine in their hands and appear to be talking, having a simple conversation so to speak. Behind them another ghost hangs off the edge of the chandelier with his hooked cane supporting his weight and preventing him from falling to the floor below. There is an elderly lady reading a book & rocking beside a roaring fireplace. When she rocks forward she disappears. When she rocks back she reappears. Other ghosts are waltzing or dancing, passing through the tables & chairs without bumping or tripping over them while an organist plays a haunting refrain on the pipe organ.
This is crazy! I don't believe what I see!
Why did we ever come into this house?
I've never seen ghosts partying or dancing.
They sure know how to have fun tonight.
Appearing and disappearing at will, they don't see us staring-watching them.
Perhaps they do not sense our presence.
That could be possible.
Excuse me you two, but have we found the exit yet?
Yes, any sign of the so-called back door.
Well we haven't found it yet but we're still looking.
It is then that Saki discovers their so-called good luck fortune.
Here's another door at the other end of the balcony!
Let's see where it leads us to next. Hopefully we'll find the way out in there.
LET'S DO IT!!!
