Paranormal State – They Only Come Out at Night – S05E02

Ryan is back to his old tricks and his old way of thinking for this one. Quite honestly, this crazy story barely makes any sense. Supposedly the family is being assaulted and taunted by some sort of spirit energy and they’re on the verge of packing up and moving on. The family is being pulled, pinched and pushed. The kids want to move away. The parents are at their wits end.

Ryan and team investigate the house where they feel spider webs in the face and claim they’re getting pushing and pinched. After some digging they feel the "demonic" entity at work is a "pukwudgie", which is "a 2-or-3-foot-tall (0.61 or 0.91 m) troll-like being from the Wampanoag folklore. Pukwudgies’ features resemble those of a human, but with enlarged nose, fingers and ears. Their skin is described as being grey, smooth and at times has been known to glow."

So it’s trolls eh? Tormenting the family and causing problems? Well alrighty then, nothing like going out on a limb is there? I’m sorry, this just sounds completely absurd. That’s the explanation for the events is a little ill tempered troll? It has nothing to do with all the exposed wires in the basement and all the crap they’re storing down there. Those wires wouldn’t perhaps give the feeling of spider webs with all the electricity coursing through them? And with all those boxes and all that stored crap, there is no way someone would just be walking into a box and hitting their hands and arms? It’s has to be the work of some crazy troll. I mean, wow!

As I said, there is no such thing as debunking with these guys, they have no problem going with whatever wild notion that seems to fit their theory. I was actually laughing at this episode. I can’t even imagine what the home owners must have thought. But I’ll be damned if they didn’t just play along with the whole thing.

The first episode wasn’t bad, but this was insane. Morbid curiosity is going to make me tune in for episode 3 just to see if Ryan comes back to Earth or if he continues to walk right off the pier.

    During your summary of Paranormal State – They Only Come Out At Night, you mentioned that the explanation of “little trolls” doing the acts reported was ludacris. I would like to point out that they are not “little trolls” but, if we assume every legend in that episode is true, little demonic spirits. I think pugwedgies, if they exist, are more accurately classified as “little demons” than “little trolls”. You state that this explaination is crazy, yet you provide no evidence to support your claim. Why is the existence of Pugwedgies any more ludacris or crazy than the existence of ghosts, God or the Devil? Or are they all equally crazy? Please at least find SOMETHING to back up your claims. Yes, it is possibly the electrical wiring that caused the “spiderweb” feeling, but what about that documented tug on Chad’s shirt? Did electrical fields cause that too? And if so, how is that any more sane than little trolls or demons?
