A Haunt Mess Halloween 2020: Haunted Mad Libs and Ghost Stories

 

Halloween hilarity mix with frightening tales for messy tricks and treats in this spirited episode!

The ghouls got all decked out for Halloween. Agent D brought an out-of-this-world Men In Black vibe, Sara V came prepared as the Devil's Advocate, and Court showed up as a Creepy Countess.
 



They threw a virtual Halloween party, complete with games and real ghost stories. Including some of their own.

Sara filled the other ghouls in on what happened when she did the Haunting at Home with her daughters. How did it differ doing it in person vs. virtually? What kind of results did they get this time? Did they have to use the Safety Hatch?

Deedee shared an experience she had in the park in Old Town San Diego. While doing a walk-through video, she thought she heard a door open and a floorboard creak. She was in HGTV mode, not paranormal, so it caught her off guard.

HAUNT MESS HAUNTED HEADLINES OF THE WEEK 

This week's stories included ancient cats and a spooky sounding new ghost hunting PC game, Phasmophobia. 

HAUNTED PLACES DISCUSSED THIS EPISODE

The Elisa Lam story at the Cecil Hotel. (Deedee said this is one place she's not sure she could investigate. Court agreed.)

Sara shared what both intrigues, entertains, and creeps her out about Nuke's Top 5 videos and which ones are her faves. (Randonauting!) 

The Soothsaying Stalker of a Spirit named Kate, a.k.a. The Bell Witch from Adams, Tennessee.

What Happened When the Ghouls Embarked on The Haunting at Home Paranormal Adventure?

 

They settled into the darkness to play a little game...

Jim from The Haunted Walks approached Courtney about a new product he was offering paranormal podcasters to try --A Haunting at Home, A Paranormal Adventure.

She immediately asked the other ghouls if they'd be up for it. Obviously, they said yes. That's what this episode is all about!



ABOUT THE HAUNTING AT HOME

The Haunting at Home is part paranormal investigation, part spooky activity, that you can do with friends. (Or by yourself, if you're brave enough...)

It's an online interactive audio experience that guides you through a series of paranormal experiments.

It's probably better if you do it in person, but if that's not possible due to COVID-19 or the fact friends you'd like to do this with don't live close (as was the case with Deedee, Sara and Court), the ghouls proved with a few tweaks you can experience the Haunting at Home together virtually.

SETUP

They all gathered the necessary items --trigger and safe-- along with pens, paper and flashlights and settled in.

Sara was down in her scary dark basement. Deedee used blackout curtains to dim her office. Court just turned out the lights in her office. She didn't have a great dark space to set up in.

Sara had Eleanor, and Deedee had her four new dolls she got from Unsettling Toys. Did their dolls help provoke any interactions?

NO SPOILERS

We don't delve into what the experiments are so as not to prejudice anyone who may want to try it themselves.

However, we do share some fun conversations --and paranormal activity!-- that came up while we did this activity.

WHAT MAKES THIS EPISODE MESSY

Cats (Deedee's jumping around in the background and Sara's sneaking up on her in the dark)

Beheadings

Dripping mirrors (Was it a physical manifestation?)

Easy ways to make demons be gone

Pareidolia

Penis pictures

Rabid demon poodles

Rem pod musical

Rick McCallum Talks About His New Book, Ghosts Believe in Me, Take 2

 

Some episodes require more than one take. The ghouls nailed their chat with Rick McCallum this time.

 


 

Which haunted headline did Rick think was the messiest? What prompted the phrase "cannibal life matters" to come up? Who did Rick call a shit bird? Which way in time would Rick rather go: backward or forwards? And why does Rick say conspiracy theories trump porn?

The ghouls peeled back more of Rick's paranormal onion in this episode. They didn't get it quite right in Take 1, so they were glad he could join them for a Take 2. (Well, technically it's Rick's third time joining them, but this time went the smoothest with the fewest technical difficulties. Phew!)

Last time Rick serenaded the ghouls, this time he recited some poetry for them...that involved potato chips. He schooled them in the importance of grammar and shared his theory of self-defense.

Yes, the ghouls learned a lot more about Rick this go around, had a bunch more laughs, and even learned one of the ghouls is a naughty ghost hunter who got busted trespassing. Can you guess who?

Speaking of, after her confession (around the hour mark), be sure to listen closely and see if you think the A Haunt Mess podcast phantom even had something to say about it...

Haunt Mess Haunted Headlines Of The Week 

Rick had some doozies to pick from. There was one about a Bigfoot spotted on the Little People's farm, a dude who stole a truck to have an alien encounter but then felt bad and returned it, and someone getting into a fight while waiting in line at a haunted house that resulted in them being shot and killed.

Which ghoul shared which headline and which one did Rick pick as the week's messiest?

Rick McCallum Talks About His New Book, Ghosts Believe in Me, Take 1

 


Ghoul down! Ghoul down!" That's the main reason this episode is Take 1. The ghouls welcomed back past guest Rick McCallum of the Hollywood Ghost Hunters to talk about his recently released book, Ghosts Believe in Me. 




Well, they tried to welcome him back. Computer Gremlins conspired against them. First, it was tricky to connect with Rick. Then, the Gremlins silenced Sara.

The ghouls and Rick agreed it'd be better to try again next week.

So...that's why this is Take 1.

However, there were some usable moments. Rather than scrap the whole thing entirely, they pieced together these bits. Most are "What Makes This Episode Messy" kind of moments, but hey. Some episodes work out that way.

Tune in for "Rick McCallum Take 2" next week!

SUICIDE AWARENESS

This episode does mention a disturbing incident Rick encountered. The ghouls want to emphasize, you are NOT alone. Help is ALWAYS available 24 hours a day and is only a phone call away via the National Suicide Prevention Line: 800-273-8255.

WHAT MAKES THIS EPISODE MESSY

Rick and Skype

Sara's silent, but still very understandable, F bomb

Uncooperative microphones

Jumpers

Ghost gangs and ghost bears

Guard dogs on steroids

Coldest comedy

Eyelash language

Bony little heads

Rick's serenade (well, it wasn't messy. He's actually got quite a lovely voice.)

Garry Fields TV-Spiritual-Medium

 Sara wanted to talk to a psychic. Not for a reading or a consultation, but because the ghouls really hadn't had a psychic as a guest yet. She put a call out on Twitter and past guest Penny Griffiths-Morgan suggested Garry Fields. That's how he ended up joining the ghouls to discuss a little bit about what it's like to be a psychic, but also how he merges that with paranormal investigating.

 He also shared a story about another past guest, Rick McCallum. Funny how sometimes there's less than six degrees of separation in the paranormal world, isn't there?

John E. L. Tenney Chats with the ghouls on A Haunt Mess Podcast

Once upon a time, while talking with the other ghouls, Deedee brought up an experiment she had read that John E.L. Tenney wrote about. Specifically, "Recording Your Dreams: Desynchronized Sleep Manifestation."

 


 

It was about how he used a blank VHS tape, a magnet and that was about it. He then placed the items under his pillow in an attempt to see if he could record his dreams. He also included an image that he said had shown up on one of the tapes after such an experiment. (He'd conducted this experiment multiple times over the years.) Sara and Court didn't believe it is possible. Deedee wanted to try this experiment for herself. Then a funny thing happened. Somehow Deedee and John traded tweets and she took a chance asking him if he wanted to be on the show to talk about all of this. John was not only super cool, but also extremely generous with his time. The ghouls could've talked to him for hours, and hope to have him back on the show one day. Not only did he explain more about his dream experiment, he admitted it sounded wacky and as unlikely as hell. He didn't blame Sara and Court for calling B.S. But he also touched the ghouls' heart with his ethics, principals and love for his mom and dad.

Ronny Pascale talks about his encounter with a Shadow figure on the stairs

 Ronny Pascale is a comedian who was recording one of this comedy YouTube episodes "Roast Yerself" with two others when a Shadow figure decided to crawl up the stairs behind him. He didn't notice until people started pointing it out to him. At first he was not worried but as comments and time went by he became interested in what or who it could be!

 


 This week the ghouls try to help him figure it all out. There were so many details that came up. Like his new act with dead mom jokes, an old roommate who hid sage in the closet, his old Victorian home (Was it green?) and so much more... 

 

 To catch Ronny's act go to his You Tube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/RonnyPascal...
