Dead in the Marshes
Dead in the Marshes in the New Line film
Ghosts living in the waters of the Dead Marshes. The Dead in the Marshes were the ghosts of Elves, Men, and orcs who had once fought each other during the War of the Last Alliance. When Smeagol wandered through the marshes, he saw the ghosts and tried reaching down to eat ome. He could not, and ran away in terror. In early 3019, he led Frodo Baggins and Sam Gamgee through the Marshes and to the Black Gate. The Hobbits were in hopes to enter Mordor and destroy the Ring of Power. The Dead in the Marshes captured Frodo, intending to eat him. But Gollum fished him out of the Marsh and ordered him to not follow the dead's mysterious lights.
