Ghost Adventures – Witches in Magna – S14E09
The next investigation takes Zak and team to Magna, Utah to investigate a family who claims they have a curse placed on them by a bad witch. Sebastian says, "from what we believe", that after ending the witches employment at their restaurant she put a dark spell on him. Since then, he’s been the victim of mood swings and fits of rage where he wanted to break things. Because the experience left him confused, Zak says this is possession.
Sebastian turned to a psychic who sold them spirit balls she makes. They supposedly can capture spirits. Once home, Sebastian had a bad reacting which caused uncontrollable sweating and he moved in an awkward way.
Additionally, 6 year old Sebastian Jr, says he sees the dark figure of a girl on a repeated basis and has even been touched by her. Their daughter felt hands around her throat.
Zak meets with Kelli, who sold the spirit balls and is "battling" against the evil witch. She says a demon has been summoned against Sebastian and there is a curse over her as well. The evil witch used her hair and a tarantula to weave the curse. She’s not suffering any ill effects though.
Oddly, there is a witchcraft shop just down the street from the pizzeria. CJ says the evil witch, whose name is never mentioned, and has since disappeared, used to work at the shop but was dismissed after finding out she dabbled in the darker side of witchcraft. CJ says she has been into the basement of pizzeria and something strong and evil is down there.
Local Historian, Robert Goble, was told that Magna was the most haunted town in Utah. Zak notes the coal plant that’s in operation and if this could be feeding the paranormal energy.
As Aaron digs around in the basement, he finds a blood stained mattress and hand prints on the wall. For sure, the mattress should have been thrown away, but the hand prints look like someone’s attempt to be silly and scary.
Billy says he sees the camera head move. When they check the footage, there is no movement. Instead of Billy being mistaken, Zak claims Billy saw red eyes of the demon.
They hear multiple bangs down there, and get a response to their questions.
"Whose blood is that? – Behind you"
"What’s behind me? – I’ll show you"
"Can you show us? – Be patient"
"Who brought the bad spirit here?" Zak gets a light anomaly in response. Right after, there is a massive bang that sends them scattering in all directions, yelling and screaming for help. The vibration can be felt through the entire building. Zak believes the entity is acting out against them.
After gathering their thoughts, Zak takes a spirit ball down to the basement, and for some insane reason, tells Billy to lie down on the fetid mattress. At least Billy has the sense to decline.
We also see how easy it is to misinterpret what they see on the cameras as they believe something is morphing and coming into existence on the thermal. It’s Zak’s reflection off a shiny surface.
Next, Zak brings out the Talking EVP, which shows a distance measurement jump from 38 to 170. Instead of this being a malfunctioning device, Billy says something is in front of the camera interfering with the reading.
Zak asks what they should do in the basement. They get a response of "dig". When asked what he will find, he gets "ahead". He treats it as two words.
When Zak asks what was done to the daughter, he gets "scratch" which is quite a bit different than choking, but Zak will let that slide as well. Intelligent enough to answer, but not intelligent enough to get it right.
Then Zak gets the answer I’m sure he’s been waiting for. When asked who scratched the daughter, he gets "Master." Who is the master? Satan.
For the last part, Zak brings out the SLS camera and for a second, picks up an incredibly small stick figure. The second time it returns to stay a little longer. That is until Billy comes around the corner wherein it disappears, reappears, then jumps into his body. According to Zak.
Because of all the activity, Zak performs a cleansing ritual, telling the spirit it needs to leave. But this does no good as he checks back in and the family is still having experiences.
Sebastian’s mood swings sound like the start of mental health issues. And the awkward movements might be related to something more serious. Instead of messing around with demonic possessions, he should probably see a doctor.
