Ok, I watched it!
First off, it reminds me of Lizard Lick Towing of the Paranormal!
I enjoy that show, so this was entertaining as well.
If they did not make any of it up, which as far as the family is concerned I believe, as they seemed legitimately weirded out, then it was a pretty
The paranormal crew was funny.
I believe humor is vital in these kinds of things as people can generate bad vibes if they get to serious.
I liked their lighthearted approach and it makes for good TV.
At first I was kind of disappointed, but as the actual investigation started it did get interesting.
I do have a problem with their box though as it is supposed to on its own generate paranormal activity, so there is no way to tell if it was just the
box, or a spirit being trapped within it. A follow up with the family is needed to make a judgement on that.
Also I would of liked to have seen them try to develop a yes or no with their instruments and the spirit they were communicating with instead of
taking every response as a yes. When asked if it was mad that it was trapped and it responded, there is no way to tell if it was or was not
Also, when they removed the box and took it out to the swamp, I did not see them using any equipment to see if it was still there, which makes me
think at that point, the box was "dead" and empty.
How they destroyed the box was cool, I like explosions
Take a look at the end of the video right after they blew up the box, there is a figure off to the right in the background that moves around and
caught my eye. It could be a camera man, but I just noticed it and thought it was odd.
If there was something in the box, destroying it by blowing it up would only set it free, although in a new location if it was still in there.
Over all, I liked it, it has entertainment value, but without a follow up with the family it is impossible to tell if they were successful. If the
crew was not dramatizing it, it was a good investigation.
I loved the humor.
As to the religious aspect , I think that is fine, in fact works out for that kind of work in some ways as they are protected, however it also works
against them, as they will experience something and label it demonic or evil instead of looking at it objectively and leaving open the possibility of
a lost or confused or even a spirit who is just kind of hanging out there, as there are some who do that if they have memories attached to such a
place, good or bad.
Also they were mighty quick to jump to conclusions about the bang, which I was thinking was a cannon ball, and not a portal, but that's just my
Thanks Sled! If they continue to run the show I will keep watching.
