IN THIS EPISODE: Most of us think of ghosts as frightening entities, but I’m really not sure why. I mean, the majority of ghostly entities and spirits are like will-o-the-wisps. They may drift out of the cobwebs of your attic or a damp cellar corner, but, for the most part, they don’t really do anything dramatic or harmful – except perhaps throw a chair in the air, or shake a bed till it rocks, or step heavily on the floorboards in your house alerting you to their presence. Now I’ve seen doors open and close by themselves, lights go on and off and dishes drop to the floor without breaking. But after watching hours upon hours of your favorite ghost hunters’ show, I really can’t get as excited as I was at age four when I thought I saw a full body apparition in my room surrounded by a brilliant aura. TV and the movies portray ghosts and the esoteric in general in a more aggressive light. You have ‘Ghostbusters’ with its slime and ‘The Exorcist’s’ star Linda Blair spitting pea soup and telling her mother what she can do while in hell. Nothing like a good nail biting horror story like ‘Pet Semetary’ to prompt us to hide under the covers and leave on the night light next to the bed. And who can’t pass up an episode of “Supernatural”? It doesn’t matter in these instances if we are five or fifty, a good scare is a good scare! But what about fearsome ghosts away from the fictionalized world of horror movies? Good scares in real life, as far as ghosts go, are pretty much a rarity, except for those occasional cases which are guaranteed to make you wet your pants and scare the crap out of you. Tonight we’re not looking at your average, mundane ghost story. What we are concerned with are incidents which can be categorized as the most diabolic of poltergeist experiences, as well as skirmishes with the most gruesome and alarming phantoms you are ever likely to deal with.
