This page is about a screamer or shock site, whose original copy has been deleted.
Basement Ghost (also known as "Ghostly Picture!") was a 30-second long screamer animation that was uploaded to the defunct web hosting service GeoCities in 2002 by a user named patlee_69. The site on which this screamer was hosted, which also had a guestbook for people to sign if they had "seen the ghost", can only be accessed through the Wayback Machine.
The animation shows an extremely grainy image of a dimly lit basement. Nothing else happens until 22 seconds pass, when suddenly, a cut-out of Cheryl Williams as her possessed self from the 1981 horror film The Evil Dead flashes for a single second in front of the basement image alongside a high-pitched, echoed scream; the animation then repeats afterward.
NOTE: The following animation contains a screamer!
