If you happen to be in Ireland and are looking for an interesting experience, consider this “House on Haunted Hill”-like challenge. Could you spend a weekend in a supposedly haunted house?
VOLUNTEERS are being sought to spend a weekend in a haunted house for a spooky new TV show.
A Dublin-based production company wants paranormal believers and non-believers to sign up for the show called Spooked.
A pilot programme due to be broadcast on RTE2 next October will offer six applicants the chance to spend the weekend in a haunted house.
But the makers are remaining tight-lipped about where exactly the ghostly production will be filmed.
“I can’t reveal where it is going to be yet — not even the county — as we really want to keep the mystery,” said a spokeswoman for Coco Television.
“We’re only at the pre-production stage so it’s very early to give many details.
“I can say that we’ll have paranormal investigatory in the house with them and the six chosen applicants will be doing experiments and tasks.”
Applicants must be 18 years old or above as the project may be upsetting for younger people.
The production team will make sure to have help on hand should successful candidates feel troubled once they get on the site.
“We will make sure that there is a psychologist at hand to counsel the people who get in, to make sure it all goes smoothly”, the spokeswoman said.
It almost seems like this TV show is going to try and rig this house to make it a bit scarier than it actually is – a la MTV’s “Fear.” There’s nothing I’d love to see more than a bunch of frightened Irishmen. Seriously.
