It looks as though GHI went out not with a bang but with a rolling cigarette. In what is probably the last episode of Ghost Hunters International, the team visits Lower Fort Garry in Manitoba and Hell’s Gate British Columbia. Both locations are freaking beautiful, I really enjoyed the site tours. Having said that I wish GHI had taken a moment to mention that Fort Garry hosts haunted tours (link).
In the Fort Garry segment, the team hears the usual odd noises. However, I would find it even more creepy if an old location like that had no sounds. I got a bit of a chuckle when Paul decided to build a fire and use the blacksmiths’ tools. Wouldn’t that have been a memorable ending for the series, with the haunted location going up in flames. Having said that, it seemed to me that Paul was stepping up his game with trigger objects while the rest of the team seemed to almost sleep-walk through the show.I’m a little troubled with the doll’s hair that had seemed to move. Why didn’t we have some video?
Next the team traveled to Hell’s Gate. Once again, we are treated to some fantastic eye-candy with that beautiful location. Almost in contrast to the awesome location, the GHI team was less than stellar. The highlight was a cigarette used as a trigger object and it was seen to move on a table. Maybe it’s just me but I rolled my eyes at what seemed to be obvious hoaxing. To me, it looked as though someone blew on the cigarette forcing it to roll up the table then gravity took over and it rolled down the table. I wondered if the table was picked because it wasn’t level or did the GHI crew put something under one leg of the table? I blame shenanigans like this for the demise of the show.
Although quotes from Kris like “bears like honey, right?” may have been a contributing factor. Speaking of Kris she has a new gig video blogging for ancestry.com. I guess that is based on her experience as a historical researcher.
If you want Syfy to continue GHI, there is a petition started (link). Having said that, I don’t think that the Syfy channel is motivated by what the fans want.
