Down! Down!

Down! Down! Down!

Stay back.

Back. She's trying to escape.

All souls take corporeal forms,

and when they fail they find places to hide.

Seal these in a mirror-lined box

and bury them far from any river,

and your witch will be gone for good.

You're a brave man.

Take the bag.

Bless you, brothers.

Bless you.

Whoa. We had

a legally binding agreement.

Oh, yes. Yes.

Of course.

Thank you. Thank you.

She... She is dead?

- Yeah, very.

- Course she is.

She's dead.

I must tell the whole town.

She's dead.

Our witch is dead!

(miller laughs)

That one was a bit of a nightmare.

Don't give me that look.

- I was a scholar once, Will.

- Yeah, now you're famous.

All the girls know your name.

What do you want? An apology?


Blithering idiot!

Your mother was a toothless cow!

Get me down.

Get me down!

Sorry, Hidlick. Slipped.

Fat Christ! What are you doing?

Trying to kill us?

Weren't we supposed to?



God-awful smoke!

You know, just once...

Just once, I'd like to sell it

on the strength of my performance.


Watch out for the...

snap boards.

We do all the flying, the burning, the

scaring, what do we have to show for it?

Talk to Will.

- One tenth. Just like God.

- Exactly, one tenth.

And for the rest, all you have to do

is ride into town and smile.

Yes, well, talk to Napoleon.

Organize your labor, start a guild.

There are two of us. Hm?

Two times ten. Hm?

- We want a twentieth.

- A twentieth?



Shrewd thespians.

Now, here's the plan.

Have a couple of days' rest

then meet us in Hamburg.

- Jake knows a legend of a bridge troll.

- Bridge troll. Yes! (grunts)

How comes he does the monsters,

I play the girlie ghosts?

Because you, my friend, have talent.

You've got range.
