Surely it was the Goddess Ishtar after She died and returned from Hell? Sumerian mythology: that's Old School right there.
"If thou openest not the gate to let me enter,
I will break the door, I will wrench the lock,
I will smash the door-posts, I will force the doors.
I will bring up the dead to eat the living.
And the dead will outnumber the living."
Oh that sassy Ishtar...
