The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ SyFy Picks up an Australian Ghost Hunter Show!

Honey Buzz ~ SyFy Picks up an Australian Ghost Hunter Show!

Whether you love it, hate it, or watch it to MST3K it, paranormal programming isn't going anywhere any time soon. Recently, SyFy announced that they would be adding a new show, Haunting: Australia to their spring line-up. The show follows "six of the best ghost hunters in the business" as they investigate some of Australia's most notoriously haunted locations. I'm just going to throw it out there and say that calling the team "the best ghost hunters in the business" is quite a statement, considering that I've only heard of lead investigator, Robb Demarest.

Maybe "former investigator with Ghost Hunters International, 4 other dudes and a token lady," would be more appropriate? I may be giving the show a hard time, considering I haven't seen it yet, so take my snide comments with a grain of blessed rock salt. 
Robb Demarest, the only "real" ghost hunter.
This show is touted as an unscripted show, which is great and exactly how these shows SHOULD be. However, I have seen the trailer and there are a couple of images that really don't sit right with me. First off, there appears to be an exorcism going on in one scene. If you know anything about paranormal investigating, or even if you don't, true exorcisms are extremely rare. Whether they were doing a mock exorcism to invoke responses or actually performing one, I can tell you that it's a terrible idea for an abundant amount of reasons.

Secondly, at the end of the trailer an image of a woman pops up to scare the crap out of you. Keep in mind, she looks like something you would see in one of those YouTube videos that you used to terrorize your friends and younger siblings with in the early 2000s. What relevance does it have? So far, nothing. I am extremely skeptical of this show, but I suppose I will just have to watch it and go from there.
Marilyn Manson, what are YOU doing in Australia????
