Dan Aykroyd Turns His Attention To Real Paranormal Cases In New Ghost Hunting Show 'Hotel Paranormal'
The next hotel room you check in to may be more crowded than you think as 'Ghostbusters' star Dan Aykroyd attempts to prove as the narrator of a new Travel Channel series.
'Hotel Paranormal' premiered in the US on July 11 and although there's no word as yet about a UK date for the series, it's likely to appear on Really in the coming weeks.
The series follows the terrifying true stories of those who have come face-to-face with otherworldly hotel guests and things that go bump in guest houses at night.
A perfect fit for Aykroyd who has always been very interested in the paranormal and well-read on the subject, coming from along family line of believers and paranormal researchers.
The acclaimed writer, actor, musician and filmmaker narrates each hour-lone episode featuring spine-tingling stories of paranormal encounters told from stays at grand hotels, highway motels and inns around the world.
As well as providing rest and comfort to many guests, these buildings also house paranormal activity in every imaginable form - from objects flying across rooms to ancient spirits trapped in lobbies, to demonic guests.
Each of the ten episodes will bring to life terrifying encounters with dramatic re-creations and paranormal expert insights.
"As a longtime believer in ghosts, I think the incredible encounters we're highlighting on 'Hotel Paranormal' will open up a lot of minds and hopefully break through some of the skepticism people carry about the paranormal," said Aykroyd. "I'm excited to lend my voice to help bring viewers across the United States, these gripping real-life ghost stories, many of which take place in their own backyards."
In the first episode, a travelling salesman checks into a motel where he documents poltergeist activity with his cell phone. Fleeing into the night, he becomes possessed by the spirit of a murderer and in need of an exorcism. While on a school trip to the Vatican, a teenager and his friends accidentally set free an ancient evil and suffer the consequences. Then, a journalist is hunting down a story in Connecticut when she checks into a historic New England inn and fights off a supernatural attack. These guests have all become prey to a paranormal predator.
