The film is directed by Tom Kimball and features Anne Marie Cannon and Kevin Kuharic as key members of the team. The film begins with an introduction to the team and their equipment, including EMF detectors, infrared cameras, and audio recorders. Their goal is to capture evidence of paranormal activity in several abandoned towns and buildings throughout the western United States, including Bodie, California, and Virginia City, Nevada.
As the team explores these ghost towns, they interview locals and historians to hear stories of the supernatural experiences and legends surrounding these places. They also conduct investigations throughout the night, exploring abandoned buildings and using their equipment to try and capture any signs of paranormal activity.
One particularly eerie location they investigate is the Silver Queen Hotel in Virginia City, which is said to be haunted by the spirit of a prostitute who met a grisly end at the hands of a jealous lover. The team uses their audio recorders to capture EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) and their EMF detectors to try and detect any changes in electromagnetic activity that may be associated with paranormal activity.
Another location they visit is Bodie, California, an abandoned mining town that has been preserved as a National Historic Landmark. The team explores the old saloon, church, and other buildings, looking for signs of ghostly activity. They also attempt to communicate with any spirits that may be present, using various methods like dowsing rods and pendulums.
Throughout the film, the team captures several eerie occurrences, including strange noises and voices on their audio recordings and unexplained shadows and apparitions on their infrared cameras. They also describe feeling cold spots and sudden rushes of energy, which they believe may be indicative of ghostly activity.
The film is shot in a gritty, handheld style that adds to the sense of exploration and discovery. The team members are portrayed as genuine and empathetic, and their excitement and occasional fear add to the tension and suspense of the film. Overall, Ghosts in Ghost Towns: Haunting The Wild West delivers on its promise of eerie encounters and spooky stories, making it a must-see for any fans of the paranormal.
