I’ve a confession to make: I really like actuality TV. Whether or not it is poisonous and sensationalist like MTV’s Catfish or comparatively benign like Love, Lust, or Run on TLC, I’m an absolute sucker for actuality exhibits. Once I was in center faculty, my pals and I watched hours of the trash that was The Actual World and Taste of Love, and in highschool (and now, to be trustworthy) I might by no means say no to watching a marathon of Preserving Up With The Kardashians with my mother. It is mistaken. And it is sick. I do know. However three years in the past, in school, I discovered the right present to sate my two obsessions (actuality and horror) when it got here to leisure: Paranormal Witness.
This Syfy unique collection comprised of interviews with witnesses to the paranormal and poorly acted reenactments of the fear that the witnesses endured. Type of like Untold Tales of The ER and I Did not Know I Was Pregnant, however horror themed. There have been tales of aliens, UFOs (together with the Trumbull County UFO), ghosts, poltergeists, and black-eyed youngsters. And I will be trustworthy, a few of the episodes have been pretty chilling. There was no query that some (most) of the tales had been embellished for the sake of leisure. The present was enjoyable to observe and served as a pleasant break from writing papers concerning the social and political implications of genetic testing/ decolonizing feminism/ homoerotic undertones in literature. Sadly, the collection solely final three seasons.
With little fanfare or publicity, Syfy renewed Paranormal Witness for a fourth season, two years after the collection’ unlucky cancellation. The brand new season kicks off tonight at 10/9c on the Syfy Channel and also will be obtainable to observe on-line. The primary episode is titled “The Motel” and can be about– look forward to it– “a household that will get far more than they bargained for once they transfer into an previous motel.”
If you cannot wait till tonight, you possibly can watch sneak peeks and older clips here. Under is only one instance of what is in retailer:
