To think that a classic ghost story, with classic ingredients, DOES NOT INCLUDE A TOWER!

Towers with secret doors are FOR FAIRYTALES.

Not ghost stories.

You will all want to know me then, when I'm signing copies in Waterstones.

There's an Evil Power in the Tower.
There's sumfin' in there, I saw it glower.

'There's a ghost up the tower,' said Uncle Gregory.

'OK, I'll never go there,' said Timmy, running off to the Isle of Wight Festival with his chums.

The End.

I might write a bit more in the middle about rocking chairs and pictures with moving eyes.

I have to be honest...I've never heard a ghost story with a tower in it...

squoosh Fri 14-Jun-13 23:30:54

Maybe the ghost story will be set in Gower.

Can you add a creepy huge pram that moves on its own in an empty room

Salmotrutta Fri 14-Jun-13 23:31:14

But Timmy would go Up The Tower Attic

Purely because Uncle Gregory said not to.

And he'd go alone.

Thems the Rules.

Sod ghost stories, Breakfast Club is on BBC2

squoosh Fri 14-Jun-13 23:31:55

And there has to be a grey rocking horse with a white mane that rocks even though there is no one in the room.

Thank you Bimble.

A lone voice in the wilderness.

Salmotrutta Fri 14-Jun-13 23:33:27

Goes wiv out sayin' innit?

Bimblepops Fri 14-Jun-13 23:34:10

Sorry flowers

Salmotrutta Fri 14-Jun-13 23:34:29

When Timmy Goes Up The Attic he must not turn the lights on.

Can one of the characters be taken up the tower?


usualsuspect Fri 14-Jun-13 23:34:52

Bimble has been bribed, I think

OOh The Breakfast Club.

Judd Nelson could star in the film adaptation of the Ghost up the Tower.

usualsuspect Fri 14-Jun-13 23:35:56

Always lowering the tone, Tethers. <tuts>

Salmotrutta Fri 14-Jun-13 23:36:41

Or... The Ghost Up The Attic.

tethers you are rude.


tethersend Fri 14-Jun-13 23:37:46


Can we have pagans?

Bimblepops Fri 14-Jun-13 23:38:32

Bloody marvellous film...

usualsuspect Fri 14-Jun-13 23:38:34

YY to pagans, dancing naked in weird masks.

squoosh Fri 14-Jun-13 23:38:36

Ghosts penetrate the darkness, not the darkness of your bumhole.

HauntedArmchairOfDoom Fri 14-Jun-13 23:38:42


Viz, The Turn of the Screw.

I sense a theme to add to our collection:

The Eels In Caves documentary

MN in Jail

MN The Musical

The Ghost Up The Tower Attic.
