I have to say I was intrigued to see just what this TV show had to offer upon seeing the trailer and whilst I may be two years or so behind the rest of the world in seeing it I still had to see just what it was all about. Unfortunately within the first 10 minutes or so I was already tutting, shaking my head and laughing at practically every scene. First off we see John and his friend Chad enter a diner. They order coffee but then an elderly chap comes over to them asking what interest they had in the Bell Witch.

When they ask this stranger if he knew anything about the witch he basically warns them not to go meddling in the woods because all strange things go on in there.
