'Ghost Hunters International: Season 1, Part 1'
(Robb Demarest, Barry Fitzgerald, Dustin Pari, Brandy Green, Joe Chin, et al / 3-Disc DVD / NR / 2010 / IMAGE Entertainment)
Overview: “Ghost Hunters” is the #1 paranormal franchise on cable television. In this hit spin-off of SyFy’s popular series – which debuted to record-breaking ratings with over 2.8 million viewers tuning in – you’ll see medieval ruins, Victorian mansions and more as the hunters travel from Great Britain to Germany to New Zealand, sifting through history and mystery.
DVD: Ghost Hunters International is a spin-off series of Ghost Hunters that airs on Syfy. The series premiered on January 9, 2008. Like its parent series, GHI is a reality series that follows a team of paranormal investigators; whereas, the original series primarily covered only locations within the United States, the GHI team travels around the world and documents some of the world's most legendary haunted locations.
These GHI investigators tread around dark hallways, with flashlights in hand, looking to register unusual sounds with their equipment. Some of them jump at their own shadows and are easily startled when they hear a creak or see a flash of light!
Look, 'GHI' is basically a real version of the fictional film, 'Paranormal Activity' - just in TV show form. And even though the series can be a little rough around the edges, it's pretty solid overall, and usually fairly scary throughout – even if it is staged! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the episodes of:
Whispers from Beyond
Fortress of Fear
Castle of the Damned
