Quick Take: Ghost Hunters International, “Search for the She-Wolf”
Ghost Hunters International actually tries some debunking.
Review: Ghost Hunters International,”Search for the She-Wolf”
(S0304) “Search for the She-Wolf” provides a lot of ghost horse ass and not enough She-Wolf. Our team goes to investigate Castle Rising in Norfolk, England. Tourists and the local historian have reported numerous paranormal phenomenon such as eerie lights, doors opening, and a ghost of a horse's... ass. I'm being completely serious about the last one. The local historian, Norman Fahy, also believes that he is the potential cause of the haunting. The team goes to work to capture the anomalies on tape.
This episode fairs a tad better than last week's because there is more screen time devoted to debunking the ghosts rather than recording them. This actually makes the Ghost Hunters look more credible, though I still feel like I'm watching a ghost show with a Zombieland sense of humor. I sometimes think Jessie Eisenberg is going to come out of nowhere and say something witty. It is refreshing, though, to see the show focus on one strange case rather than two or three in an episode.
We start with the lead investigators and Fahy investigating a room. The temperature suddenly drops 20 degrees. They replicate the situation and suffer... hair pulling. Apparently, the castle holds 12-year old school girls anxious for a pillow fight. The hair pulling is explained away, but the team does uncover weird lights that go unexplainable.
More ghost molestation occurs when Joe Chin investigates the ghost of the duchess. They record weird footsteps and Chill reports being tapped on the shoulder, again. This phenomenon really isn't debunked and only brings the show to an act break. The footage should be used for a PSA against ghost molestation rather than evoking intrigue. Speaking of which, the most interesting thing in the show occurs when they find bones in a room. They suspect they are human remains, though the historian later argues that there is only one pair of human remains in the room. Yes, that is more reassuring. Insert other sarcastic comments here.
Probably the most ridiculous thing in the episode is the horse ghost. A tourist captures a ghost horse's rear on film and now the investigators must prove what it is. After performing some experiments involving mist, the horse is mildly debunked, but not perfectly so. Still for an episode about a She-wolf, it is hard to take analyzing a ghost's ass seriously.
The place turns out to be haunted, not Norman Fahy, but he still expresses the giggles when he sees the light phenomenon recorded on film. This is the only satisfying thing to happen all episode. Norman Fahy was more entertaining to watch than the actual investigators. Or maybe he's just more credible because he wasn't trying to figure out a horse's ghost bum.
