Yes I am referencing the Travel Channel hit series about a trio of ghost hunters who go to some of the most haunted places on the planet. Now I know that there are skeptics out there who say that ghost are not real. Heck I even consider myself a skeptic at times, but I believe that it is important to maybe imagine that it really is real and this documentary will do the trick.
This documentary includes the shows host before their show actually started airing on television. This film is the reason why the show was actually picked up and you will know the reasons why when you see it. Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin are all here and ready to go on a three week ghost hunting expedition in Nevada, focusing in Virginia City, mining towns and the Goldfield Hotel.
What makes this film so unique is the just how real it is. The reactions of the three friends who experience this happenings that are going on have such force and terror in them that you as the viewer cannot help thinking that you are right there in the room with them.
You will see a full body apparition, another apparition hiding in a corner and what seems to be some extensive poltergeist activity. Watching this film during the daytime is enough to have you looking around your house to give yourself some reassurance that somebody is not in the room watching you. One thing that is truly remarkable about this film is the proof that is shown to us is also put through analysis to prove to us that the video is authentic, which is something not a lot of these types of shows do now a days.
One important thing I wanted to talk about was the ending of the film. Now I will not give it away of course and give any details as to what happens, but lets just say in takes place in this Goldfield Hotel’s basement, and it was the scariest most gut-wrenching 10-15 minutes I have ever encountered in any film or documentary. It came to the point where I just wanted to turn it off and forget about it. But I allowed my courage to take over and watched it. It was not pleasant. My heart was racing. I was starting to sweat. I guess after seeing films such as Paranormal Activity and Poltergeist that you wait and expect for that creepy doll to pop out of the corner of the screen or the scary ghost face to pop up out of nowhere. I was expecting something like that the whole time upon viewing but kept say nothing like that was going to happen, and that what made it more terrifying. The unknown lurking in the darkness is always scarier than seeing the creature in the darkness.
The Ghost Adventures documentary is well worth viewing. It will open your eyes to a whole new world of the paranormal. I do dare you to watch it at night time with the lights off. I could barely watch it during the day with the lights on.
4 out of 4 stars
