Anyone view the new show School Spirits on Syfy, true accounts of the paranormal? I tell you what  the second show scared the heck out of me more then any of those paranormal movies.

Well if anyone did see the show, who do you think the ghost was , a kid that hung himself in that closet  or was it a projection  of Chris`s fears?

I swear that I have seen in the credits with the line "Based on a true story". can Any one confirm this?

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

Dorm Room Night Mare (a dorm in NY) was the name of the show I`m refering to and yes they say these are true events. Its on again at 5am Sun morning, but i` advise  no one watch it alone in the dark:):) If anyone had Demand TV just go to TV entertaiment,  and then to Syfy click on Syfy and the shows should be there and come on free to watch.

Yeah, Credits say based on a true story. When they say that 90% of the story is altered

I can say characters portraying the story line, however as told by the true whitness of that paranormal event.

I've seen both and like them both. The second one of the guys dorm and him literally staring one down was amazing. I know they embellish but remember his dad's part where he spent the entire night sitting with a gun and bat and then the next day says, "love ya, have a nice day". lol

I'm sure the folks at SUNY Geneseo were quite happy to learn that Dad was sitting there with a pistol all night.

Fun show, but I agree that there's probably quite a bit of embellishment going on in the retellings.  The biggest red flag for me, however, was how they showed very little interest in researching the history of the dorm.  If some kid hung himself in the room, it would be in at least the school paper.  That would have been the first thing I would have done.

I'm willing to bet SciFi is using real stories told by real people. Heck, they even advertised on UM for people to give them stories...

http://www.unexplain...=school spirits

Whoever told SciFi the story probably really believes whatever happened to them was paranormal. And after all, they got a clever legal team, and know to use the term "true story" instead of "true events".... it's enough of a jargon difference to keep them out of serious trouble.

I bet if they did some digging on that last episode,they would find some poor kid commited suicide in the closet.Just my feeling on it if it was all true paranormal accounts.

I agree!!Why not do the research and add that to the show?? :unsure2:

Because it's Hollywood. End of story.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I didn't watch the SUNY Geneseo episode.. I'll have to wait till it reruns or something. So, I don't know what-all is in the episode yet. I did read the little catchup blurb on the SciFi website..

Sounds like they used the story of C2D1/Erie Hall ghost... Here's a nice article about that. http://thelcn.com/20...g-theater-near/

Is it an example of seriously paranormal? I don't know, I haven't researched it.

Stories told by people are just that, stories.

I really doubt there is much fact going on there. Just entertainment for the ghost crowd.
