Storyline

Zak Bagans hosts a show that goes to a different haunted location every week to pit two teams of amateur paranormal investigators against each other to see who can do the best job investigating during a four hour period. Both teams are given the same equipment to use and monitored by remote video feeds. In addition to Zak, there is one regular judge--the ever funny Dave Schrader--and two guest judges each week. Billy Tolley aids with the judge's data analysis and provides technical expertise. Written by Anonymous

"We're going to face them. In the face."
6 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Two teams of paranormal investigators wander around a location previously featured on Ghost Adventures. Mostly they are quite large folk and the sweat starts rolling within minutes. If they can survive the haunted locations and diabetes they win "bragging rights", presumably over the other team of heart attack magnets.

It's tacky and feels cheap but I quite like it. Most of the evidence is poor but they do catch a few interesting things. The main reason to watch are the weird teams who react to the camera either by looking distinctly uncomfortable or shouting "huuuuh-rahhh bring it onnnnnn" and saying things like "We're going to face them. In the face."

The most cringeworthy bits though have to be the women investigators who make the unfortunate decision to flirt with the deceased. These budding necrophiliacs say things like "you want me?" and "imagine what we could do together." I have to stress that these women are incredibly unattractive middle aged frumps. It's hardly surprising that they elicit no response whatsoever.

I've decided it's worth an extra star for having the mesmerisingly awful and nervy Chris Flemming in it. Sadly he doesn't get possessed and bray like a horse like he did in Hollywood Hauntings which was a bit of a let down.
