Did Ghost Hunters Change the Ghost Hunting World?

A new post on the Autumn Forest Ghost Hunter blog explores the effect that Ghost Hunters has had on the paranormal community and predicts what may happen when the show is finished.

Prior to Ghost Hunters or BGH (“before Ghost Hunters”), ghost hunting was something people giggled about as frivolous and born of the spiritualists movement involving hoaxes such as ectoplasm, Ouija boards, and (dare we say) séances. People who believed in ghosts were in with the ranks of UFO witnesses and Bigfoot peepers; all of them taken as overzealous nerd fantasies.

But, after Ghost Hunters (AGH), Americans who had believed in ghosts and would not readily admit such a predisposition, were now turning to their friends and admitting their “affliction.” I had been hunting a few years before the show came to be, but when I heard a show about ghost hunters was going to be on national TV, I thought “times are changing! I might finally come out of the closet.”

New Dustin & Barry Interview Mentions GHA Recruits

MediaBlvd Magazine has just posted a new interview with Ghost Hunters International's Dustin Pari & Barry FitzGerald. The interview is similar to the previous Deadbolt interview, but contains new questions and information about when Karl Pfeiffer and Susan Slaughter (GHA recruits) will be joining the GHI team. Also mentioned are funny experiences at the locations and the most compelling evidence the team has found.

Question> The other companion show to your show is Ghost Hunters Academy. And I had watched all six episodes of that. And it looks like two people have graduated from the academy and will be joining you in their investigations. But I didn't know if they’re coming on board the end of this season or next season; do you guys know when?

Dustin> No I was just saying that we haven't filmed with them as of yet. The episodes that are airing currently are the ones we had just finished up while those guys were actually in the academy.

The Deadbolt Interviews Dustin & Barry

The Deadbolt Online recently conducted an interview with Ghost Hunters International team members Dustin Pari & Barry FitzGerald. Barry & Dustin talk about new equipment, scary mannequins, whether prisons or castles are scarier, and more! Don't forget to watch the new episode tonight!

THE DEADBOLT: Barry, how hard or easy is it to spook you?
FITZGERALD: [laughs] My biggest nemesis has to be mannequins. I have to say that those truly frighten the living hell out of me, because I have my mind set on I'm there to do a job, I'm there to look for ghosts, and all of a sudden this
dummy will be leaning against somewhere, maybe where it shouldn't have been
before, and it truly frightens the hell out of me.

In Argentina, in the case that's coming up, that they had the death images that were taken back in Victorian times, where people would be propped up with different things around them and a photograph was taken. So I was in a dark room with my own camera taking photographs of these photographs, because I've never actually seen them before, and the only thing light-wise I had was the auto focus on the camera.

So, as you can imagine, as I turned around there was a small dummy of a child leaning against the wall and I screamed louder than Brandy Green ever could and all of them grabbed their stomachs laughing at me. I get spooked by those
things, I really do.
