Let’s Investigate

With the onset of the Samhain season, my family has submerged itself in Halloween television programing. Since we watch over the net, that gives us a lot of options. We have a Netflix account and have been watching stuff on there.

My children, while looking for something to watch, stumbled upon a ghost hunting show that is supposed to be a reality and documentary style of program.

For me this is a problem, because I am not getting a whole lot of documentary out of it. I love details and educational programming. This show doesn’t really deliver. I don’t see a lot of science and I feel like it is lacking on history.

So, I went looking for more and the universe answered. I received a message asking me to support a new project to create a less dramatic, more historically educational paranormal investigation show.

This looks cool.

The Paranormal Knights, are currently attempting to raise money to fund their pilot episode. They intend to show the audience the history of the haunting and to avoid the sensationalized dramatization that is ruining so many other supposedly educational programs.

They have a campaign to raise funds on IndieGoGo. Check it out. I plan to watch the campaign as it progresses. I like their ideas, so you will be hearing more about this in the next few weeks.

Let’s Investigate

The little camcorder hit the wall with crack that sounded like a batter hitting a home run. Mike looked over at the wall beside Terry’s head to see the bits of plastic that were sticking out of the drywall.

Terry looked down at the tiny pile of debris that was sitting beside his boot before he went pale. The big man’s lips turned blue and began to tremble as his eyes widened. He let out a long, shrill scream and bolted out of the room.

Mike heard all two hundred and sixty pounds of electronics technician hit the front door on the way out of the Schneider House. He watched as the cords and gadgets that they had brought with them began to spin around in the air. They bumped and twisted together until a tornado of plastic and electronics stood from floor to ceiling like an upside down Christmas tree.

A figure floated in the center of the maelstrom. A tiny female with whipping hair and glowing eyes who stared at Mike without blinking. She stared at him, all sound in the room drowned out by the roar of her storm.

A mischievous smile sprouted on her face. Mike’s legs shook so much that when he tried to get up, he couldn’t. So he sat there, leaned against the wall, watching her float closer.

He heard someone giggling, felt a cold hand grab his ankle, and then he was dragged from the wall.

      Thank you. I have been on a number of paranormal investigations and in a weird way, you always hope something like this happens. You just hope it happens to someone else in the group.

    Seems caution is in order. What happens when you finally find what you are looking for?
