Ghost Adventures – Return to Bobby Mackey’s – S04E03
For this episode of Ghost Adventures, Zak, Nick and Aaron return to Bobby Mackey’s Music World which has been cited as having some extensive and aggressive paranormal activity. On their first visit they claimed to open a portal to hell where Zak was physically scratched. Years later, they return with a public ghost hunting event and multiple people have wild stories about what took place on that night.
Many claim they’re still having residual effects. A lot of people have trouble sleeping, they have nightmares, hear voices and Aaron admits that spirits from this place lead to the breakup of his marriage. Several people that Zak interviews admit to having violent thoughts and feelings of hostility. They feel this place has effected them just from being there.
But Bobby Mackey thinks it’s all coincidence. He isn’t sure what to believe, but he can’t believe his bar is somehow responsible. During the interview there is some suggestion that Bobby may even be a reincarnation of someone who used to live or perhaps died at the site. A wild proposition to be sure.
After the interviews it’s time to get down to work and right as the investigation begins there is a loud crash and the EVP of "I’m gonna kill Zak". A pretty bold start I have to say. I have to admit, that actually sounds like a legible EVP.
But that’s just the start of the threats. They’re followed up with "I’ma kill your wife" which could have been directed at Nick and "take the knife" which may have been directed at Aaron in regard to a pair of scissors near him on the table. These are less legible so I’m not quite on board with the message because the main problem, as with so many of these, is all the noise going on. They’re littered with pops, clicks, bangs, creaks, people talking over the sounds and all sorts of other noise contamination. Quite frankly you can pretty much hear whatever you want to hear in those recordings. But if they are real, someone could be getting ready for a fight.
And once again they break out two pieces of technology I find to be faulty at best. One seems to be scanning for voices in radio waves, which honestly could just be picking up a radio station or other radio waves such as people talking. And the other seems to be some variation on Frank’s Box, which I think is complete bunk and just annoys me whenever someone uses it. I’m sorry, but until someone provides some scientific or at least repeatable data or tests on how it works I will continue to scoff whenever that thing is used.
Of course if you want to believe in such things the guys feel they connect with Scott Jackson who is rumored to have been a Satanist and is responsible for the murder of Pearl Bryant. Confession from well beyond the grave?
Moving on from the EVPs, the team is joined by Bishop Long who has come to protect as well as cleanse the place. He certainly feels there is a lot of dark energy there and while performing his cleansing ritual the guys claim to get recordings of something growling. There’s also several more threats which are apparently laced with vulgarities. The bleeps cover most of the EVP and the little bit that’s left is garbled. Do other people hear something totally different?
The Bishop brings the night to a close with a cleansing ritual and feels that demonic possession might be right around the corner if they’re not careful. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see all that since the cameras are turned off.
In the end however, the guys gather for a bit of a public service announcement where they caution viewers about the dangers of what they do and the experiences they have. I guess that is fair warning that things could get out of hand. Don’t try this at home kids!
In the end they claim to get dozens of EVPs that have nothing good to say and lay down threats at every turn. Too bad we really didn’t get to see their last visit with the public ghost hunt (or at least I didn’t, it seems like one hell of a time).
So is Bobby Mackey’s haunted? Are there really bad spirits still roaming the halls just waiting to pounce on the patrons? The team certainly thinks so, but Bobby seems to dismiss it all.
Mysterious haunting or wild imaginations?
