SyFy’s Haunted Highway

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 17th, 2012

Airing on SyFy directly after Destination Truth, is Haunted Highway.

The hour-long series follows two teams, Jack Osbourne & Dana Workman and Jael de Pardo & Devin Marble, as they do their own first-person investigations of the most frightening claims of paranormal activity along America’s remote back roads.

Fueled by eyewitness interviews and evidence collected with state-of-the-art equipment, the two teams will self-document their harrowing face-to-face encounters with the paranormal. The six episode series will feature examinations and investigations that will take the teams off the beaten path in Montana, South Dakota, Minnesota, Arkansas and Louisiana as they seek hellhounds, skin walkers, ghosts and other paranormal phenomena.

Haunted Highway premieres Tuesday, July 3 at 10/9c, only on Syfy.

Tonight’s episode: Utah Skinwalker/Ozark Howler

    So far I’ve found it considerably less contrived than the other reality shows purporting to be in pursuit of explanations for cryptic/paranormal matters. Not to say that the investigators can’t get overly excited or the show edited for the melodramatic, because they can and it does. But it does seem to be attempting a new (hence fresh) approach to the genre.

    Good Show, But it’s kinda fast paced, I would rather see both teams get together and do one thorough investigation on one subject, That way they could get allot more footage and evidence.

  6. gridbug responds:

    “Fueled by eyewitness interviews and what can best be loosely described as “evidence” collected with marginally state-of-the-art equipment, the two teams will self-document their ridiculous night-vision anticlimactic freakouts which will be teased as face-to-face encounters with the paranormal, ultimately resulting in zero quantifiable results and a wasted hour of the viewers life. For self abuse fans only.”

    There, much better! *lol*

    I have really enjoyed this so far, and I think with the small choice we really have out there this is one of the best.

  8. PhotoExpert responds:

    Yes, I watched it.

    I would not call it great. I don’t really consider it a good show. However, when confined to choosing the lesser of several evils, I would pick this show over the rest.

    I wish some production company would come up with a show that shows real researchers and employs the scientific method to their evidence. Now that would be worth watching, even if it got a little boring at times for general viewership. There would at least be a chance at revealing or finding something noteworthy with time.

    This one night in the woods stuff based on layperson’s opinion who are already “believers” needs to stop. As soon as I see the nightvision video, I tune out!

    Now that Jack Osbourne has met the high exceedingly standards that need to be met to earn the title of “cryptozoologist” that I once read on this site (anybody who is paid to investigate unknown animals) I wonder if I’ll be hearing questions like “Why don’t ‘mainstream’ scientists take cryptozoology very seriously?” less often than I used from cryptid-fans.

  10. dconstrukt responds:

    it’s got an interesting hook…. i’ve watched 2 episodes so far?

    as far as what they actually “get” evidence wise? eeeeh… a little suspect…. they need more in that dept.

    This most recent episode with the skin-walkers was a complete joke. For one, they’re in the middle of the desert, no shit there are going to be animal prints. And those ‘creepy noises’ that Dana was hearing… coyotes. I have lived in the desert my entire life, and could pinpoint that sound in any second. Yes, it is a little strange that there were barefoot human prints that disappear into the river then seem to pick up as dog tracks on the other side of the river. However, like the doctor said, in the desert, the water source is a highly coveted thing. All kinds of animals would congregate around the river, and humans would likely hop in the river if they are on a hike and need to cool off. It’s the desert, it gets hot. I agree, kind of, with the other thing that the Doc said about the one heat source that splits into three. Unlike him, however, I would not believe it to be a herd animal, but instead a pack. If it were a herd animal such as antelope or cattle, there would be many many more splits in the heat signature. They find safety in large numbers, and three of a herd animal would be easy pickings for mountain lions and coyotes. Because of this, I believe those heat signatures were more likely coyotes. They travel in much smaller packs, averaging at three or four. The only time there are large numbers of coyotes is during the breeding season; and Jack and Dana would have been hearing blood curdling screams if it were breeding season. Seeing as they weren’t, and were instead hearing the normal sounds a group of coyotes make, I’d say it wasn’t breeding season. This reinforces the idea that it was a pack of coyotes. All this being said, I do have quite a few Native American friends, and believe that there are skin-walkers. However, my friends have also told me that they don’t come after the white man; so this search was futile no matter which way you look at it.

    I’ve been watching and will continue to watch. I find it quite entertaining. While it may not be as informative as the now defunct “Monsterquest”, I still find the show rather enlightening. Not to mention that it features two of the most beautiful women in cryptozoological studies. Personally, I would have no problem simply watching Jael de Pardo read the phone book.
