Here goes nothing…
I have never had a ghost-experience of any kind, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to know everything there is about ghosts. And one addiction I have is watching ghost reality shows. Yeah, in the back of my mind I’m thinking it’s probably not real, but I’m extremely selective as to what shows I watch, hence I tell myself there must be some truth to them, even if tiny.
Number one show I love is Ghost-Hunters – an American paranormal reality television series. The program features paranormal investigators Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson who investigate places that are reported to be haunted. The two originally worked as plumbers for Roto-Rooter as a day job while investigating locations at night and founded The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) that help people who have ghost problems in their homes or businesses. Their methodology is to disprove everything they are told is supernatural and show a logical explanation for most things, but what evidence they can’t explain might reveal a haunting. That’s what I like about them – they don’t go around and proclaim everything is haunted just because they heard a noise.
The episodes are pretty tame and I’m guessing not everyone who receives their help has agreed to be put on TV. The reason I say this is because I read one of their books, which goes into greater detail about other, scarier cases they attended. And it gave me the creeps, but I still loved it.
The other culprit is the reality television show ‘A Haunting.’ It is an American paranormal docudrama anthology television series that features narrations, interviews, and dramatic re-enactments based on various accounts of paranormal experiences at reportedly haunted and mostly residential locations.
This program usually freaks me out and I can only watch it if my hubby joins me. It shows traditional hauntings, demonic activity, poltergeist attacks, possessions, and cryptic visions. The series covers incidents from various locations across the United States, as well as four episodes that were set in Canada, England, Ireland, and Taiwan.
I am my own worst enemy – yes the dark does scare me, yet I can’t get enough of these scary, ghost shows. One night after watching A Haunting, my hubby and I headed to bed, and as I walked down the hallway toward the bedroom, my hubby decided it would be funny if he turned off all the lights. Well, all I can say is that the neighbors would have heard a very loud scream. Hubby was quick to turn the lights back on and hug me till I calmed down. That will teach him to try and scare me.
So share with us, what scares you?
