The OP is being hypothetical ,as they clearly state,even a fictional character is an ok choice .
It's just a question about,what would be truly horrifying .
Ghosts are already scary ,so what would make one even scarier .

And its basically a question asking you to use the willing suspension of disbelief .It's how Hollywood and authors make all their money .



Miss me?

Who? Nah, it's far scarier to have an anonymous ghost.

This isn't quite on topic but I have some suggestions for those taking pictures of "ghosts"...

Empty eye sockets. During the Amityville hoax, some hoaxers hoaxed a great photo while pretending to investigate the undeniable paranormal activity there. The photo was a child looking back at the camera but his eyes were empty black orbs. It still gives me chills.

Shocked or surprised expressions. The idea is that the ghost doesn't want you to see them. When the ghost realizes that you can see them, they should be as surprised as you are. Imagine the ghost seeing you as a ghost, like the two universes are suddenly connected. Something like Munch's "The Scream" would make a great ghost.

Angry expressions. Too many (fake) ghost photos show the ghosts moping around all sad. We already know that being dead sucks. I'd like more the pissed off ghosts, ones that are looking straight at the camera and pointing to a wall or door, as if saying "geeeetttt ouuuuuttt!"

Distorted but recognizable features. There are too many shots of orbs and blobs that barely show a nose or a couple of eyes. Ever seen someone's face wrapped in a light net or transparent cloth? Now there's a scary ghost.

Tunics, cloaks, unexplainable attire. Think of the Hooded Monk. You probably can't top that for ghost attire but you can try. One idea is to cut a hole in an old sheet and stick your ghost head through it. Now you have a ghost with a clear human head yet (with a little planning) no distinctive body. Creepy.

So keep on taking pictures of those ghosts.

I think the ghost of any dead comedian would frighten me the most. They would the be worst of the mischievous kind of ghosts. Especially Andy Kaufman or Chris Farley.

I know he's not dead, but George Takei will make a very creepy ghost.

Imagine undressing for a shower and hearing a very faint "oh my."

Yep, that's why Lord Cumbermere is the scariest ghost!

I would have to say my first husband- he's been gone for years and I live somewhere different so it for sure would freak me out to discover he came back from the dead.

Oh gosh, he doesn't even need to be a ghost to be scary! I got some WEIRD nightmares after watching Pan's Labyrinth, and this guy starred in most of them ha ha!
BTW I'm loving where this thing is going. Keep it up, guys! But again, some explanations for your choices would be better than just a name. Or you could post pictures/news article, just a little something to give us an idea of your thought process, even if you think it might be obvious, like Michael Jackson and Hitler. What makes YOU in particular think that they're scary?
