Vigo's the big bad in GBII so he gets more than a scene - but we particularly love the moment Ray (Dan Aykroyd) and Egon (Harold Ramis) recount the Carpathian's back story - his slaughterous slash across his native lands and the punishment meted out to him: 'he was poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disemboweled, drawn and quartered.'"
Oh, and his promise: ".Just before his head died, his last words were, 'Death is but a door. Time is but a window. I'll be back...'"
Why It's Scary:
The Rasputin-style legacy is a creepy one, even though it's often undercut by the writers for comedy value, thanks to Pete Venkman (Bill Murray): "Wasn't he also Vigo The Butch?" But then he really comes to life...
Antiques Roadshow Appraisal:

"Well, it'll take a fair bit of restoration - someone needs to fixed this dried, slimy residue, but he'll soon be back to his former glory, and worth anything from £500,000 to £1 million.
"A few experts have surmised he's suffering from Carpathian kitten loss, but we think he's a little too angry for that to be the only reason."
