Haunted Collector SyFy Series: My First Look

So the SyFy channel has this new series called Haunted Collector. They run in blocks of an hour on TV, but I opted to watch it on Hulu, so I only ended up with a few commercials expense in order to give this show a trial run. Now I'm not a huge believer of the whole ghost hunting scene, but I still watch these types of shows from time to time just because.


I'll just leave a summary of the show so as to not spoil anything. I've only seen the first episode at this point, so I can't speak for the series as a whole, but I can throw a guess that it'll be very similar with each of the episodes because that's just how reality series work. The show follows a dad, his two kids, and a few crew members as they go around the country trying to help haunted houses by determining what item in the house is causing the haunting. So what do they do? They run around a house with various "high-tech" ghost hunting equipment and complete their "investigation" within a few days time as suspenseful music and clever editing try to keep you interested.

Overall, it was no more entertaining to watch than some of the already successful ghost hunting shows (Paranormal State, Ghost Hunters, etc.). Some of the parts seem heavily scripted, but then what reality TV show doesn't feel this way?

I'd watch it again, but I kind of favor the cast of Paranormal State over this show's team of people. None of these shows really contribute to furthering my belief in ghosts though!

Thanks for reading!

  8. I love SyFy! A lot of their shows and movies are kind of campy, but that's a subgenre all it's own. I really like that over-the-top stuff sometimes.
