  • Make sure to leave your questions for our Post Mortem episode down below!

    • Around 15:09 you can see in shane’s flashilight right side above a man’s face..

    • Buzzfeed message me youll be glad you did. Jasonalex1234 at yahoo

    • Make sure to leave your questions for our post mortem episode down below!

    • I'm definitely a Shaniac, but I like the idea of a ghost just kneecapping people with a ghost bat whenever they invade the ghost's favorite spot.

    • at 8:25 i heard a 'mayday' which would make sense in the sequence of "help"; "please help me". soooo could it have been that you guys picked up someone's distress signal? as in a real actual human not a ghoul. #shaniac #postmortem

  • it's insane that most people seem to be more familiar with joaquin than river pheonix...god im old

  • So do you guys even help anyone? What ever became of the hole in the wall part ? Why doesn’t anyone get the body?

  • Did any one else hear “its me” after the hey on the spirt box when ryan entered the closet

  • Ghost adventures who

  • my baby river :(

  • 5:07 guy from the joker movie. 😱

  • :c awww he wants help, help him cross over!

  • Windy ghosts ahhahah

  • At 19:08 did anyone else see the manikin head on the counter of the bar?

  • That woman asking for help, the unintelligle part it sounded like she was about to say "I need help"

  • I miss River.

  • Please help Anthony fox already!!!

  • theory : they 4 ( including depp ) worked tgtr to eliminate anthony in fear that he reveal smth .

    • before the trial and purposely drove anthony’s car away to make it seem like he ran away .

  • 4:17 LMAO

  • Ok, I really want the ghoul boys to go back because the spirit box kinda said a few sentences asking for help. I would love to see a longer convo using the box.

  • Anthony Fox: “Please help me, I’m buried in this cupboard!” River Phoenix: “Thank you for being a fan of my work, I appreciate that.” Ryan: “Well, I guess it’s still unsolved!”

  • “The manager of the bar reports seeing people pass out or fall over.” In other news, the manager of the bar also serves alcohol...

  • Shane, Ryan can't you hear the voice saying help me

  • Hey do you think that the squeaking sound at 21:40 is a call for help from Anthony? I mean he’d been asking for help the whole time and maybe he wanted them to know that he’s down there. That’s low key sad man :(

  • 4:20

  • Such a shame about River Phoenix. My Own Private Idaho is one of my favorite movies and I always feel such a sad longing when I come across a movie I think he would have been perfect in. He clearly had so much potential and likely would have become an iconic actor or even musician in time.

  • Clearly that investigation needs to be reopened I bet that dude under the club spirits are real.

  • They both look homeless

  • 11:40 The phone will ring and they'll be nobody there. Then the walls will ooze green slime!

  • to the list, we have A list Ghost Hunters/Investigators🤘🤘🤘🤘 From VIP room to the ER, that is ironic.

  • lEts pArtY lets dANCEE!!

  • #johnnydepp

  • When River said " Thank You" to Ryan's compliment I legit got sad

  • O00oo you guys dressed cute actually! Ps: I wonder if Ryan changed his name to Ryland bc of you guys..... Hmmm who knows what I'm talking about? If so press 👍 please! 💗🤷👬😘

  • doh don't take coke dickheads

  • 8:25 sounds like "I need it"

  • Honestly, Ryan could narrate the whole content of oxford dictionary and I will not get bored.

  • Yes, people’s knees often buckle and they fall over at the bar, IT’S CALLED BEING DRUNK! 😂

  • I remember watching a documentary on this.

  • Try using advanced ghost technologies

  • New season please.

  • I think a good way to maybe talk to ghosts is to take your phone, open up the notes/memos, and ask them to type something on the phone by tapping the screen. Then set the phone either in your lap or to the side and closing your eyes or looking away until the screen shuts off. Then turning it back on to see if there is a message. Sure it could be kind of easy to fake, but if you keep a camera on it the whole time and have screen recording going you might be able to get something.

  • So Johnny Depp literally had a hit done on Fox? I need to see a movie, about this, with him cast in that roll. That would be epic, amazing and Hollywood legend worthy. Tim Burton must write and direct it.

  • 6am? You have to be there around 12pm-3pm

  • I’ll never be able to watch an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie without hearing Ryan’s impersonation in my head.

  • Plot twist: 20:38 that's actually what happen in this series every now and then

  • He asked for help soooo many times! I was truly sad for him... He should indeed get help!

  • this dislikers are the demons and ghosts

  • Ngl, that "thank you" hurt my heart😭

  • So far I haven’t seen anything about the intro, mainly 1:18-1:27

  • It really hurts my heart that Ryan nor Shane did anything for Anthony! He kinda just acted like he didn’t hear the help me and that Anthony confirmed him being buried down there. He went in there to find out about Anthony and made no comment about it when he did. It was so odd. I’ve never heard a spirit beg for help like that before. It seemed so urgent to really help him. I want to dig Anthony up so bad! it was weird how Ryan acted so calm in there. I think it’s how the spirit affected him in the room. Seeing how anthony wanted help I don’t think he would give off the vibe to scare Him especially if he needed him. Idk I’m mad I wish there was more done about this.

  • Who or whatever was on the other end of the spirit box said please help me like six times. Geez.

  • Ryan: Now I’m in your hole Me: oh are you now👅 (im sorry 💀)

  • Ryan: *moans* Shane: Dont make that noise. ever again.

  • Can we talk about that sweet moment between Shane and Ryan when he said he made a friend? He was kinda surprised and I'm just like AWWWWW

  • "now I'm in your hole" wow that phrasing lmfao

  • home alone burglars lol

  • hahaha shane is just too funny

  • hey.. at 8:10 watch the upper left-hand corner. there is a shadow that goes by a few seconds later... thank me later

  • Is Ryan on drugs? Why did he so willingly want Shane to close the door? 🧐🤨😳🤭

  • Ryans other quote "You like a little pelvic action huh?"

  • "Now I'm in your hole" 15:48 Ryans quote of the day

  • “clearly” I loved that 😂

  • Shane: "Bye ghosts! I love you." Me: "LIAR!"
