They watch us. They wait. Lurking in the shadows or in bright daylight, from afar, in the corners of our eyes or in our very own bedrooms, staring directly at us, sometimes with eyes of red fire. They observe us and learn our behavior or they try to choke the breath and souls from our bodies. But why are they here and what do they really want with us? Or are their sightings and interactions just a physiological or psychological anomaly, Hypnogogic or Hypnopompic Isolated Sleep Paralysis, a trick of the light, perhaps a wayward spark causing an electrical stimulation of the brain's left temporoparietal junction? Maybe this phenomenon is only one of the many unfortunate side-effects of a methamphetamine bender, but then why do sober and healthy people also see them? Join us tonight as we explore what these uninvited paranormal intruders might be, perhaps either interdimensional or bioelectrochemical and why they seem to enjoy the abject terror they instill in us in our 2nd Annual Halloween Special. If these spectral watchers are real, one thing is certain: they feed off our deepest, darkest fear. Tonight's Quote: “The boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague.
