There's that kind of haunting, sure, and then there's that other kind of haunting. In Resistance 2 it's called a Chameleon, and it's a shrilling, screaming banshee with invisible armor that has to be killed the very moment before it rips your throat open with it's glistening fangs. Now that is some haunting shit.
