The Haunted Door is a Ghouly that is first encountered in the first visit to the Cellar. It has 60 Energy and is the seventh ghouly encountered in the game.


Haunted Doors resemble the Doors found all out in Ghoulhaven Hall. A wide, blue, square-shaped door with a golden doorknob and a skull-shaped keyhole that can move around as an actual being.


Being a boss ghouly, there can only be one Haunted Door at a room at a time. Encounters with a Haunted door come as a surprise, at first, the Haunted Door will be in the guise as the Door to the room Cooper must enter. Then, when at a close enough proximity, the Haunted Door will reveal itself by stepping out of it's rims and the real door will lock itself, starting the challenge. The Haunted Door's basic attack is projecting its doorknob repeatedly, springing it at Cooper and quickly retracting it. This attack does 4 Heart Points worth of damage. The second attack is only used after a Haunted door is knocked to the floor to which then the door lifts up Cooper to the air and then uses itself to smack him, decreasing 8 Heart Points. Similar to theMedusa and Jessie and Clyde, when a Haunted Door is knocked down, it turns red and cannot be attacked until it gets up and returns to original color. Also, when a door is defeated, it breaks into several pieces and they remain on the floor, instead of disappearing like Skeleton's shattered bones. The Haunted door in the foundry can also be burned in the fire.
