Josh Gates has his hands full this week as he travels to Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Japan. He investigates some of the world’s most absurd folk tales and bizarre sightings, including: the Burrunjor, said to be a dangerous creature that stands on two legs at about 25 feet long; a cave haunted by spirits, that is rumored to be a source of great power; a bat that reportedly has a 12-foot wingspan and supernatural powers; seven-foot black creatures that swim in the Tikis River, scaring families; the Aswang, the most feared and supernatural creature in the Philippines, with an appetite for children; and a forest, known to be a popular suicide location.

 

 Ghost Hunters: Monday, December 6– Friday, December 10 at 10pm ET/PT

It’s an action packed week for the Ghost Hunters Team as they are joined by musical legend Meat Loaf and Destination Truth’s Josh Gates. Watch as the team visits a 300-year-old farm house that sits on the land where the Battle of Brandywine took place. Thousands of soldiers died there and at night the sounds of sobbing is heard throughout the house. Then, the team investigates a ghost who plays pranks on people, a female apparition that roams an old war museum, a courthouse rumored to be haunted by the spirits of the American Revolution, a family being tormented by a live in ghost and a Church where bells ring for unknown reasons and candles engorge in flames by themselves.
