Haunting Review of Paranormal Witness

SyFy’s new show, Paranormal Witness aired last night following Ghost Hunters (who’s season is off to a pretty decent start..) and I must say, IT’S GREAT. A great throwback to those reenactment shows most of us grew up with. Narrated by the people who lived the events, and portrayed by slightly better looking versions of said people.

Also, the show is actually a little scary too! No quick and easy EVPs followed by a Jay and Grant fist bump, but stories ending with people saying nuts to this and moving out of their houses. All of this combined with a great time slot make it seem like a show that will last at least a few seasons. Let’s just hope there wasn’t any network ‘tweaking’ done after the pilot was shot.

I’ll keep watching for sure, and highly encourage you to check it out if you haven’t already.

  • The second episode aired last night and it too was a great hour of television. It’s not all ghost stories and not always scary, but well put together and definitely paranormal.

    The second episode was about a woman who went missing (turns out died in a car crash) and how a stranger visiting relatives had a crazy feeling and had to go home in the middle of the night -down the same road!- and when passing the crash scene (covered by trees and down a hill side) saw an apparition of the woman, naked laying on the side of the road. She called the cops when she got to the nearest payphone and when the fuzz arrived the body was gone and the next day the officer assigned to the missing persons case heard his fellow officers talking about it and checked it out for himself and found the car wreck down the hill right where she saw the apparition with the woman still buckled in and miraculously after 6 days, her young son was still alive.

    So, yeah, crazy show, check it out for sure. Sure beats Haunted Collector. Let’s just hope any unaired episodes are that are collecting dust and haunting NBCs cutting room floor.

  • My only comment is if some of the places were haunted, why didn’t they send the “Ghost Hunters” or “GHI” in to investigate? The people with the haunted homes call in spiritualists, mediums, Priests, etc. but not Grant & Jason. Even Zak could get some TV air time with these locations.
