The Occulterers

Halloween is on the way, so it’s a good time for a reminder about The Occulterers, This is Hayden’s spoof ‘Ghost Hunting’ show based around a four-person team who “boldly go where no sane person would; into haunted houses, spooked-up mansions and poltergeisted castles to find out just what’s going bump in the night.

Fortunately for any ghosts, The Occulterers internal relationships are a whole lot bumpier and scarier. In fact, most supernatural presences run in fear when they’re around!”

The six part series ran on babelgum in 2009, in the week leading up to Halloween. As well as the six episodes there are 6 hour-long ‘live’ feeds from the castle where viewers could spot any strange happenings!

The whole show was written, cast, shot, edited and produced in 18 days, and stars Buffy’s James C. Leary, The Evil Dead’s Ellen Sandweiss, Angel’s Camden Toy, Hayden (of course) and I ♥ Vampire’s Amy Kline.

Don’t worry if you missed it the first time round, all the episodes are  available on Babelgum so why not find out what goes on when the lights go off!
