If you're an '80s-baby who grew up with the luxury of cable–hot or legit–let's a take spell to acknowledge the near myriad of stellar paranormal shows we grew up on in the '90s:
- Unsolved Mysteries
- Are You Afraid of The Dark
- Tales From The Crypt
- The Ghoul Time Theater with Elvira
- Ghost Writer
- Buffy The Vampire Slayer
- The Twilight Zone on Nick At Nite
- Bewitched on Nick at Nite
- I Dream of Jeanie on Nick At Nite
Page my beeper if your millennial middle school heart is on fire!
Time and again I've heard it said that the 2000s saw a renewed interest in the paranormal and life beyond the grave. '90s kids, we clearly know better.
I think the '10s actually ushered in the desire for reality television coupled with all the things that made us jump onto our beds from five feet away in the dark, so whatever was underneath couldn't grab our feet. Not today, Freddy. Or Chucky. Or Penny Wise.
C'mon! I wasn't the only one!
Shows like Paranormal State and Ghost Hunters made the paranormal feel so accessible, that it seems they spurred memberships and participation in paranormal investigation cohorts around the country.
How many does the Gem State have? I'm aware of five credible Idaho ghost hunting societies; one of which I just requested to join via Facebook, lol.
If you're a 30-something guy or girl after my own heart or the thrill of ghost hunting, any of these five Idaho ghost hunter groups might strike your '90s-kid paranormal fancy. If you belong to one of these groups or end up joining one, I'd love to know your story!
