Ghostbusters - Scoleri Bros. by DanSchoening Ghostbusters - Scoleri Bros. by DanSchoening
6 of 13

Nunzio Scoleri and Tony Scoleri, better known as the Scoleri Brothers, were convicted murderers sentenced to death by electrocution by Judge Stephen "The Hammer" Wexler in 1948 at Ossining Prison. They came back as electrical ghosts in 1989, brought forth from the spirit realm by negatively-charged mood slime in Judge Wexler's courtroom.

The Scoleri Brothers first appeared in Ghostbusters 2.

Judge Wexler: You got to do something! Help me!
Ray: Don't talk to me; talk to my attorney.
Louis Tully: And that's me! My guys are still under a judicial mistrangement order... that blue thing I got from her! They could be exposing themselves!
Peter Venkman: And you don't want us exposing ourselves!

Nice. The Scoleri Bros. happen to be one of my favorite ghouls besides Stay Puft.

Too bad they weren't included as bosses to fight in the video game. I remember in advertisements they were to be included but unfortunately were left out. Keep up the good work Dan.

Loved the scene I wish they could've showed the cheeky ghost in the first one and more of these two in the second

This picture of the Scoleri Bros. looks very nice, and I think the movie "Ghostbusters II" is just as great as the first one! :D

These guys are the best thing that happened to me since tapioca pudding. The way they made the teeth and eyes scared me a LOT, but it was a thrilling scary and fun. One of the many things I loved about Ghostbusters was hoe cartoony the ghosts were.

My favorite ghosts of the series, and beautifully rendered. I sort of wished their scene had lasted longer, they were so much fun to watch and amazingly designed. Really, this picture does them quite a lot of justice. I love it. :heart:

The primary purpose that their scene serves is to remove any initial legal obstacle to combatting Vigo. But they are pretty awesome. They're some of the few ghosts in the actual films to get a backstory.

I always liked the design work on these two (especially Tony - the combination of jutty chin, needly teeth and glowing eyes makes him look genuinely demonic at points, yet still funny - not an easy thing to pull off, to be sure), and you've done 'em proud. Love that crackly electrical look.

"The Scoleri Brothers!!!"

"Friends of yours?"

"Tried them for murder! Gave them the chair!"

"Why don't you just tell them you don't believe in ghosts?"

Love it :D

You know, the fact that they were tried and then fried for murder may have been a little too dark for the RGB. At least RGB was dark enough as it is.
