Today’s guest is one of Watcher’s very own, and Ryan's ghoulfriend on BuzzFeed Unsolved, Mr. Shane Madej. You may know Shane as the resident skeptic on BuzzFeed Unsolved or as the charming Professor on Puppet History, or as the wizard of whimsical on Weird Wonderful World. But also you may know Shane if you know me, seriously at this point, I’d be surprised if that wasn’t true.

  • ::musing:: Shane’s scared of physical threats, like that roller coaster in “Tourist Trapped”. If it breaks and you fall, you die. A bunch of actors who aren’t allowed to touch you and the empty air are not threats, so he’s not scared of them. (If you believe that ghouls, ghosts, and/or evil supernatural entities do not exist, whatever you see doesn’t pose a threat.) Also: In addition to stop-motion animation, Shane’s mentioned he practiced ventriloquism as a high school student, was intrigued by the animatronics (and wax dolls) in “Tourist Trapped”, and now works with puppets. Guessing that Shane has a mind that tends to look at an object and mentally take it apart to see how it works. He was reaching for that mannequin when it moved, the only real startle he makes in the video. Honestly, I’d love to see Ryan and Shane go into a haunted place (organic or devised) wearing brainwave caps. I bet that not only does Ryan’s light up to a greater degree, but the parts of the brain that light up for both of them are very different.

  • This a genius interview platform. So great to see Ryan conduct interviews in a jumpscare-centric haunted house. But the fact that Shane has zero reaction to any of it honestly made me so happy! It’s so hilarious! I love what you guys are doing! Keep it up! 👍🏻

So wonderful to see the lads put out content that makes them happy and excited to press record because it really is apparent to the viewer. Super grateful to be able to be a part of this brand new journey with them!

  • What these 'Haunted House' creators don't get is that silence is more disturbing than sound. There is too much going on in a 'haunted house'. There should be more darkness, less shouting and little things like a tap on the shoulders, someone blows on your head. The little things actually scare you more with added silence. This looks too goofy and less scary.

  • 0:55 - 1:05 You must have seen the Paranormal Activity saga to understand that when the demon is inside the person becomes a little bit emotionless, and yes he's been taunting a lot if them so, maybe we understand why he's become like that...
