Ghost Hunters International: Sacrificed Mayan Spirits: Belize

In this episode, GHI returns to Belize to investigate the Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins. I can’t understand why the producers of the show want us to believe that the team traveled to France (last episode) only to return to Belize? You would think that a show like GHI would be a little more honest. At any rate, it is a minor complaint.

I loved the tour of the Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins and I would like to have seen more of it. I really couldn’t understand the show’s fixation with sacrifice and blood-letting. I guess the producers felt that the blood-letting angle would attract more viewers?

Of course, the star of the show Susan “look at me” Slaughter had to be the center of attention and participate in a blood-letting ritual. I couldn’t help but think of the now defunct paranormal show Extreme Paranormal, who buried a team member alive, cut bars, and set fire to a floor. Was Susan’s bloodletting a jump the shark moment?

Barry seemed so involved with Susan’s ritual that he appeared to have momentarily lost control of his team. Scott and Paul were wondering around doing solo investigations. Joe and Kris stayed together, I guess their old Ghost Hunter training kept them paired.

The best evidence collected was an evp that said, “Pedro’s not here.” I guess its a good thing that ancient Mayans speak English. Having said that, I really couldn’t understand it without the text at the bottom of the screen.

About the blood-letting Kris tweets, “F**king Stupid”, “Looks like might be the only sane person in this group tonight.”, “Investigators should also take in consideration the kids at home watching”, “Love you guys and apologize for tonight’s madness.”.

Jason Hawes tweeted, “I spoke against it when other show did the same. People need to think about kids who may watch& try what they see. I’m with @KrisWilliams81“, “I Agree with u Kris. We would have never. RT @KrisWilliams81: Investigators should also take in consideration the kids at home watching.”

While Kris may complain about blood-letting rituals in paranormal investigations and setting bad examples for children, I have to wonder if she thinks wearing a seat belt improperly sets a good example for children?

Forget safety! Let’s not hide the goods behind a seat belt!
