Karl Pfeiffer Speaks: Hunting For Ghosts Internationally

Karl Pfeiffer, who appeared in the previous season of Ghost Hunters Academy, recently spoke about his short lived stint with Ghost Hunters International and returing to school. Karl Pfeiffer filmed one episode with the International team, which will be featured on the season premiere of Ghost Hunters International in July. Karl is not sure if he will be in any more International episodes, but did say this about the season premiere "it's [the episode] actually a really good case". Karl is still investigating locally in Colorado and plans to continue his work with the paranormal.

After a successful run on the show, Pfeiffer was one of two ghostly graduates to be cast on the third season of Ghost Hunters International, which premiers mid-July. But as the investigator-in-training heads back to school in the fall, he says his run with GHI has been cut short.

"I just did one episode," Pfeiffer says, adding that episode is slated to be the premiere July 14th. "That's what it turned out to be at this point."

Pfeiffer says he's not sure if he'll be cast for any more episodes despite his graduation from Academy, which earned him a coveted spot with the paranormal investigators who hunt down hauntings across the world.

"There's a possibility, but they really haven't told me much at this point," he says. "I'm not really too sure. They've been juggling a lot of different cast members for the show. They're just trying to get their feet on the ground."

Swallowing some of that disappointment, Pfeiffer says the filming for his sole episode in the upcoming season -- at the Halls of Justice in Nottingham, England -- was by far the most interesting.

"I can't tell too much, but it's actually a really good case," he adds. "And I think it's going to be a really good premiere for the show."

Brett McGinnis Has No Regrets About "Academy"

Recently eliminated Ghost Hunters Academy cadet Brett McGinnis said that he has no regrets regarding his appearance on the show. In the same interview with the Allied News, Brett also said that he wished he had progressed further, but it was still fun. He admitted that he had a head cold during the investigation and that Jason Hawes later told him that he was "a winner already", having been chosen from over a thousand applicants. Brett still maintains a postivie attitude about his experience, saying “I don’t think it will affect my integrity a a ghost hunter... nothing bad, just good can come of it.”.

“I wish I would have progressed a little bit further but as far as what I did, I don’t have any regrets. It was a lot of fun. I would do it again. It was definitely worth it,” said McGinnis of his time on the show.

McGinnis was eliminated mainly because of an error he made during an investigation. He forgot to attach an IR illuminator Ð a device that extends infrared vision Ð to his camera.

Others believe McGinnis was eliminated for a different reason.

“Some of the cadets made it seem like I lost some passion but that’s not true,” said McGinnis, admitting he had a head cold while filming.

“That was kind of wearing on me a little bit.”

Even after the elimination, McGinnis maintained a positive attitude.“Jason Hawes (founder of The Atlantic Paranormal Society) told me even after the show that I had been selected over tens of thousands of applicants and that I was a winner already. And then progressing to the third investigation, I felt pretty good,” McGinnis said.

Academy Cadets Are 'Crazy For Power' Next Wednesday

A SyFy sneak peek of next week's all new episode of Ghost Hunters Academy - 'Crazy For Power'. Enjoy!

Appeals Court Sides with NBC Universal in Ghost Hunters Theft Case

Back in 2006, paraphyschologist Larry Montz and his publicist filed a lawsuit against SyFy alleging that the idea for the show Ghost Hunters was theirs, due to the fact that between 1993 - 2003 they had (or claimed to) present exclusive materials to NBC featuring "a team of 'paranormal investigators.' As allegedly envisioned by Montz, each hour-long episode would follow the team's members to a different real-world location, where they would use magnetometers, infrared cameras, and other devices to investigate (and occasionally debunk) reports of paranormal activity." Shortly after this, Sci-Fi partnered with Pilgrim Films to produce Ghost Hunters. In 2007 the court ruled in favor of NBC Universal (who owns of SyFy) and recently Montz appealed the decision. Once again, in 2010, the appeals court sided with NBC

In November 2006, plaintiffs Larry Montz, a parapsychologist, and Daena Smoller, a publicist, filed a complaint in federal district court. They claimed that in 1981, Montz conceived of the concept for a new reality television program featuring a team of "paranormal investigators." As allegedly envisioned by Montz, each hour-long episode would follow the team's members to a different real-world location, where they would use magnetometers, infrared cameras, and other devies to investigate (and occasionally debunk) reports of paranormal activity.

The complaint alleges that between 1996 and 2003, the plaintiffs presented screenplays, videos, and other materials relating to their proposed show to representatives of NBC Universal, Inc., and the Sci-Fi Channel (now the Syfy Channel), "for the express purpose of offering to partner . . . in the production, broadcast and distribution of the Concept." The representatives were allegedly not interested in the concept for the show. According to the complaint, however, NBC Universal subsequently partnered with Craig Piligian and Pilgrim Films & Television, Inc., to produce a series on the Sci-Fi Channel based on the plaintiffs' materials. The show, called Ghost Hunters, stars Jason Hawes as the leader of a team of investigators who travel across the country to study paranormal activity.
