Saw a Spook!

There's no shortage of spookfests to watch on the tv these days. This season is one of the reasons I even have a television. On several nights and on most days you can catch any of a number of shivery fun shows. One of the shows I avidly watched when it was first run was "The Scariest Places on Earth" back in the early-noughts. Narrated by the late Zelda Rubinstein (the medium in "Poltergeist") and featuring regular people volunteering to do questionable "investigations", it was a hoot to watch. Grab some popcorn, turn down the lights...

Did you watch Haunted Possessions last night?

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED "Scariest Places..." And, the (I think) British show that GH is based on. A husband and wife were the main investigators and she was constantly being bleeped. Can't remember the name of the show for anything right now. But it was awesome.

Lawless- I don't know that show! I know (and despise) The Haunted Collector.

Niecely- "Scariest" is so much fun, I can't even care if it's a set up. "Most Haunted" is the British show, and I've laughed and been pissed off at them many times! They're so dramatic and fake! lol!

Hey Laura,

It's pretty spooky around where I live. Don't need to watch TV to check out spookfests, here.

No indeed, just go out my front door and bump into my neighbours! :)

Pawsitive wishes, Penny....

Penny and Gary! I've lived in those places too. Right up til last April I was in a downright scaryass place.

Neighbours can be the most frightening freaks! ;)
scratches and hugs,
Laura
