Phenomena in artwork: Ghost

The ghosts in this film conform to conventional ideas of the time: it is a translucent entity with a luminous halo that may become invisible, pass through walls and other obstacles. They live in an abandoned house, and their way of life similar to human: they read Newspapers, smoke cigars, play cards, have human emotions – boredom, fear, joy, etc. to Scare the living beings for entertainment.

It is interesting that in a world populated by anthropomorphic animals, ghosts look like people.

Phenomena in artwork: Poltergeist

Poltergeist is the result of the interaction of ghosts with the material world. They can move objects (rattle chains, breaking dishes, etc.), talking (including phone), as well as to materialize water and ice. At least one of the ghosts can replace the reflection of a living creature in the mirror. To interact with objects they can make part of his body tangible.

Despite the fact that ghosts are invisible, they leave footprints in the snow.
