Just when you thought that ghost hunting shows were on heir way out, CMT plans to air a southern ghost hunting show. Didn’t someone tell them that this had been done before — Ghost Lab?
They are part of Twisted Dixie, a group of six that seek the paranormal throughout the South. Grady Carter, Chris’ father, owns the business and finances it. Andy Carter, a talker, leads most investigations. Chris “Moo Moo” Phillips is rotund, funny and wears a cap displaying the words village idiot. Margie Blalock, who was absent from Wednesday’s adventures in Iva, is a psychic. Steve Keaton, who is Chris’ uncle and Grady’s brother-in-law, good-naturedly sat on the front porch of Ross’ house and listened to a combination of excitement, chaos and cursing.
They travel in an old white limousine to assignments because it’s the only vehicle they’ve found in which they can all fit. Before entering any house, they stand in a circle and pray for protection and for the peace of mind of any spirits they’ll disturb. They use a homemade Ouija board, which they call the Margie board, out of respect for Chris’s Catholicism.
