Ananias is a short, mustachioed man with a somewhat furtive look to him. He is a self-proclaimed magician that claims to have found a great "jan-u-wine" (genuine) mummy and to have a haunted house next door. He charges money ($25) for seeing the mummy, of course. In fact, the "mummy" is a sleeping, comatose ghoul named Woody. The haunted house has more basis in fact: Anna Winslow's ghost recently has become restless because her locket was stolen from the haunted house by Joey, a local thug and jet dealer.
