This is a rather new television show on Destination America. It is similar to some of the other ghost hunting shows that are on air as it features a group of hunters looking for ghosts across the world. However, they don't want to simply capture the ghosts on film. They want to trap the ghosts so that they can be set free. The group travels to some of the most haunted and tormented places, including mental hospitals and asylums. The name of the group is the Tennessee Wraith Chasers. One key element that is used to try to lure ghosts out in the open is Southern charm. Specializing in searching decrepit buildings where the mentally ill have died, they know who they are dealing with when going on an investigation. There are a few warnings that are given to viewers, mainly concerning not entering abandoned property or chasing ghosts without any kind of expertise.
