Ghost Adventures – Wolf Creek Inn – S15E13

imageLeaving Missouri, Zak and team head to Oregon, to investigate the Wolf Creek Inn, where a legendary vampire entity roams the woods. There are several reports of murders, which may be attributed to this creature.

As Zak talks with Mark and Margaret, they hear footsteps above them. Their daughter Marcy, claims to have seen and heard a female spirit and even shows a blurred photo of her. These events draw them to a back hallway, which Margaret says has negativity associated with it. Zak quickly claims this hallway is a portal and the little girl is a demonic entity. This is proven when he gets a case of hives brought on by evil forces.

While discussing the history of the house and the dark events, Jay makes an absurd comment that a Native American was hanged to "christen" the house. Paranormal investigator, Madonna, confirms this was Native American land and feels there is a trickster entity lurking around.

Keeping with the usual trend, as they start the investigation, Zak sees a light anomaly, which he thinks is a girl’s hand reaching out. As he moves upstairs, he claims to see a dark entity and feel a cold spot. For an instant, the SLS camera picks up the usual stick figure, but nothing further. And is the habit, Billy says he feels dizzy and something is up there with them.

Downstairs, Aaron says there is an energy around him. Zak feels another cold spot and again says he sees a hand reaching out. In this same space, Billy says something is coming up on him, and Zak confirms this with a thermal imaging blob, that looks like a reflection, behind Billy.

After regrouping, Billy and Aaron head upstairs to the supposed portal and make a "mind blowing discovery." This turns out to be plastic drink tops that have fallen off the shelf, causing a loud bang. And it’s easy to see why they fell, as the shelves are all leaning forward at a noticeable angle.

For the final part, they will split up to see if the plastic top throwing entity of darkness will prey upon them individually. Aaron goes outside to lure the vampire entity. Billy goes to the parlor to use the Talking EVP. Zak goes upstairs where Margaret said she felt they weren’t alone.

It’s no surprise that Billy gets nothing. And no shocker that Zak sees yet another light anomaly and feels a cold spot. And of course, Aaron gets a headache, admits he is scared out of his mind and begins to behave as though he’s in a trance. In fact, he’s so out of it, he drops his camera-a sure sign he’s being manipulated.

With all of the dark entities that were never seen, and all the cold spots that were never recorded, and the objects falling off a leaning shelf, Zak believes they have documented a dark energy that can move objects, mimic other entities and psychologically effect the human mind.

And you also have to ask yourself, just how many demonic portals are out there?

Ghost Adventures – Albion Normal School – S15E09

By Ntsimp - Own work, CC0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=39359417Halloween may be past, but the Ghost Adventures team are off to Albion, in Southern Idaho, to visit the Albion Normal School, now a Halloween attraction with Satanic overtones. At least according to Zak.

The school opened in 1863 and educated children for 60 years before going through multiples owners until it become abandoned.  Once closed, the property went through several hands before being abandoned. That’s when, according to Zak, the Satanists moved in.

In the 80s, during the "Satanic Panic" where zealots and the uneducated saw Satanic symbols, rituals and themes everywhere, the building was "rumored" to have been the site of rituals.

That aside, they meet with Heather, who explains that an employee sitting at a table suddenly had a grotesque seizure. Heather corrects herself saying it was a seizure or possession. When the same man comes back two years later and has another seizure-demonic influence.

As they start the investigation, they find a very crude pentagram on the wall. It’s amazing how Zak can be so influenced by man made symbols spray painted by mindless vandals. Zak puts his spirit box over it and gets the words, "watch out". When he asks what they need to watch out for, they get a reply of "you’ll be killed". Spooky stuff indeed, almost like he planned it.

Aaron puts his hand on the symbol, because Zak has stated it’s now a portal. Surprise, Aaron has burning in his hands and one is supposedly hotter than the other. The same reaction can be done by slapping your hand.

They next bring in Dallon, who confirms he has had the same feelings. To show his bravado, he touches the symbol and on cue, Jay is outside clutching what looks like a spider bite behind his ear. To show solidarity, Dallon says his ears is causing pain.

For Day 2, they meet with Heather to explain how Jay and Dallon have been marked. Jay has scratches to form X and I, while Dallon has two vertical scratches. Zak makes the revelation they comprise 5 lines and when taken apart and twisted, they can form an upside down pentagram! That is an astonishing leap.

Like so many other investigations, Zak says he feels ill and not himself. As he is lying down, Aaron breaks in and says he heard the gymnasium door slam and a voice call his name. He goes to investigate to find a slew of haunted decorations.

Zak then heads to Comish Hall where he and Billy hear footsteps. Zak refers to this as "a goatman walking around on it’s hooves." This is followed by Billy hearing knocks and thinks something is on the other side of the wall. There probably is, a raccoon.

Fixating on the pentagram, Zak sees there is a "crypt" under the fireplace, where ritualistic remains are buried. Two blips on the device are all he’s needs for confirmation.

Next, it’s the Spirit Sweep device, which looks like an iPad hooked up to a speaker. It could be programmed to make all sorts of noises from the great beyond. But, it’s silent until Zak places it in front of the pentagram, then he gets the sounds of "a male voice performing a ritual or sacrifice".

In the final minutes, they split up, each taking a building. This gives us three stand out moments. One is when Aaron gets molested by one of the utterly creepy Halloween props. The second is the ridiculously cliche act of Zak brandishing a crucifix like some sort of avenger. And finally, when there is a loud bang and instead of standing his ground against evil, which he isn’t afraid of, Zak soils his pants, and runs at a full sprint in the other direction.

Before buying into the Satanic hype, let’s review the evidence.

They get the words, "you’ll be killed" when a device is strategically placed over a poorly drawn pentagram.
Jay and Dallon have scratches that Zak says make a pentagram. Or they could make a tic-tac-toe board.
They hear footsteps and a loud bang in a building loaded with debris.
They find a hole under a fireplace.

And all of this at a haunted Halloween attraction. Clearly there’s no financial gain to this investigation…

Ghost Adventures – Hauntings of Vicksburg – Champion Hill Battlefield – Part 4

hill-of-deathFor the next installment of the Vicksburg grand tour, Zak and team visit the Champion Hill Battlefield where Grant and Pemberton squared off in 1863. Thousands of men lost their lives in savage fighting. The land is now in the hands on Sid Champion V, and Zak can feel the darkness and weeps for the land.

Zak uncovers three stories of pure evil. Al, a friend, saw a mist moving up the hill. Mike, another friend, felt something cold on his shoulder. Sid has the most frightening tale of them all and takes the crew to The Hill of Death, where evil came across as a wet blanket of emotion.

Those are the tales of evil? A mist, getting the cold shoulder and feeling some emotions? You think, “pure evil” would present itself in a guise of something a touch more sinister.

They start off the investigation by firing a Civil War cannon, which nearly makes Aaron soil his pants with excitement. From there, Bill Chappell sets up what is in essence a laser microphone. In the midst of a rain storm, Zak seems to do some “conjuring” when he commands the men to “Rise out of this ground”. They feel the beam is being broken and get the words, “I feel dead.” For once, I actually hear something in the static and it’s sounds a lot more like, “what’s up guys,” as though they tuned into a walkie talkie.

To try and cover more ground, Aaron and Billy head in one direction, while Zak and Jay head another. Zak and Jay mistakenly find Aaron and Billy on the thermal, then believe they’re being stalked by a light anomaly. The light appears and disappears as though it were flying behind the clouds. But, now that Zak has a prompt, it’s time for him to zone out like we’ve seen so many times before and comments about images of bodies in hell.

This is shortly followed by two gunshots. Zak believes these are coming from the soldiers since it’s illegal to shoot guns at night. Zak hasn’t been out in the woods after dark much has he?

After that scare, they regroup and go to the Hill of Death. Just for fun, Zak brings along an 8mm camera.

As Zak commands the entities to show themselves, they get a gust of wind from the storm. Further, they get the word, “Vicksburg” when asking what city they need to take.

Much excitement comes when a branch breaks in the dark. Despite misidentifying animals in the past, since they don’t see one, it must be paranormal.

Finally, they go to where Sid met evil and find a broken bone of some sort in the back of their buggy. Because they don’t know where it came from, it too must be paranormal. It couldn’t have been there and they didn’t see it. Nor could it have been kicked up with all the crap driving Zak was doing.

And so Zak concludes the area is soaked in paranormal energy and that they have tracked down evil.

Ghost Adventures – Hauntings of Vicksburg – Spirits Under Siege – Part 3

ga-vicksburg-lodgeThe Tour of Vicksburg continues with Zak and team at two new locations. The first is a former Elk Lodge, supposedly the home to severe negative energy and site of an unsolved murder. The second is the Kuhn Memorial Hospital, which treated smallpox patients and Civil War soldiers.

Malcolm Carson own the Lodge and tells how he makes repairs, but the next time he shows up, his work is undone. Additionally, tools go missing so he keeps buying new ones. Most would say this is the work of vandals or shoddy workmanship, but to Zak, it’s the work of paranormal spirit energy.

The first thing to note about the Lodge is that it’s completely falling apart. There isn’t a straight line to be seen or a board that isn’t rotten. However, when Zak steps inside and something falls amidst all the visible debris, he claims something was thrown at him.

He also picks up and EVP that says, “Let me get out.” How he discerns those words is beyond me.

When Zak goes to visit the Kuhn Hospital, he comments the building is the face of evil. He follows this up with conversations from two paranormal investigators. John says he had an ordeal that drove him away from the hospital and this is first time he’s been back in 4 years. He doesn’t explain that incident other than saying something was watching him.

David says he was investigating when the spirit of Michael said he was going to kill one of their investigators. Nothing actually happened to any of them, but that is their story. When Zak speaks of Michael they hear a bang. They make a frantic charge up the stairs only to stop after a few steps. Additionally, Zak says he sees someone moving down the hall.

However, the bang and figures are revealed when Zak finds two construction workers loading a dumpster.

The actual investigation is broken into two parts. Zak, Bill Chappell, and Billy will investigate the Lodge with Aaron and Jay over at the Kuhn Hospital.

Bill Chappell has come out to create an EMF vortex so he can capture it with a variety of devices. This experiment creates a lot of EMF energy that they can all feel and react to. Bill admits the effect of that high of EMF is disorienting.

And then the big evidence of the night happens, a board falls over. Zak and Billy make a huge deal that a 4×4 board of that size couldn’t possibly fall over on it’s own, it’s just too heavy. How is something too heavy not to fall?

But, it’s not too heavy for Bill, who picks it up with one hand without any strain. Zak continues to expound on how profound this evidence is and how it’s proof of poltergeist activity since there is no visible way to explain why the board fell.

Over at the hospital, Jay and Aaron send themselves into a fit as they discover someone is walking around the hospital with them. They clearly capture a figure. So clear in fact, it’s obvious it’s another person. And their big discovery for the night is a pile of Ziplock bags of poo.

Another piece of evidence they capture is something climbing on the wall. A wayward animal climbing a wall wouldn’t be a stretch for this location.

With the investigation over, all the focus is on the board falling over. Zak says the board is so heavy you need to two hands to pick it up. He’s completely wrong as we saw Bill pick it up with one hand. Zak is utterly convinced that a board falling over is the work of spirit energy and will not accept any other explanation.

Zak is free to believe whatever he wants, but this is another example of his paranormal hypochondria. He should also look up the subject of gravity.
