Plot: GHOST ASYLUM follows the most passionate paranormal team in America, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, as they examine some of America’s most frightening asylums, sanitariums and mental hospitals. Their goal isn’t just to conjure spirits and collect evidence but they are on a mission to physically capture restless souls with their cutting-edge ghost traps and self-trained Tennessean wit.
Review: I watched the first episode of this new series. All I can say is that these boys are passionate about their hobby.
I did like the “solar panel ghost attractor” which seemed to be a take-off from Ghostbusters, and there were a few too many “cut to commentary” for my likings, but that seems to be the norm for reality TV shows anyway.
Some Paranormal shows are interesting enough to follow the series, some are not. This series would fit into the middle somewhere. The show itself had some interesting facts about the history of the hospital they were investigating. One aspect I do like from any paranormal series is how much history of a location the cast will share with their audience, and these boys did a good job on that.
Being this was the first episode, it will be interesting to see how many gadgets these boys will come up with, budget allowing of course from Destination America.
I will say it is a far cry from GAC or Ghost Lab, but it is early days for the lads.
Verdict: Don’t cross the streams!
My Rating: 6 out of 10
