Ghost Hunters International
Empty9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9
Sci Fi Channel
Sci Fi Channel's original reality series "Ghost Hunters" has spawned a fast-paced spinoff that now goes worldwide.
"Ghost Hunters International" uses the same premise -- finding ghosts in the most eerie of places -- and debunking foolish myths by the use of what they call scientific evidence (this evidence is at best random, no matter how "scientific" it might appear). This latest series is fun and fast, albeit sometimes a little hard to take seriously.
The latest team is off to England in the episode sent for review. They travel to an 800-year-old castle called Chillingham (what else?), said to be considered one of the most haunted castles in all of Britain. Once planted there, our team of paranormal investigators gets to work uncovering the pieces of the castle's haunted halls. It's a little melodramatic much of the time, but, we figure, if this team is working this hard to entertain us, we might as well give them our attention.
There are many moments meant to scare the pants off of the audience. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
