Supernatural: The Ghostfacers Get Their Own Website

It seems like the folks at the CW are having a good time promoting this week’s return of Supernatural.  The episode, entitled “Ghostfacers,” finds Sam and Dean showing up on a television series similar to Ghost Hunters, and it’s definitely a departure from the show’s usual structure and filming style.  This first post-strike installment  reunites the Winchesters with the bumbling hunters from season 1’s “Hell House,” and it’s filmed as though it’s an actual paranormal reality series.

Supernatural: The Ghostfacers Get Their Own Website

To get into the faux-reality style, the network has launched Ghostfacers.com.  The website features training tips, exclusive videos, a fake movie trailer, and even the official, and completely addictive, “Ghostfacers” theme song.

The characters of Harry and Ed definitely left a lasting, hilarious impression when they showed up in “Hell House.”  This time they’ll be joined by three more Ghostfacers:  Maggie, Corbett, and Spruce.  The site contains video interviews with each member of the team where they discuss what scares them, what skills are needed to face ghosts, and what they really think about Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester.  One of the hunters likens the Winchesters to a “ball itch,” which isn’t the most flattering comparison.

My two favorite aspects of the website are the movie trailer and the “Ghostfacers” theme song.  The trailer is for a non-existent slasher flick called Hell Hazers II: The Reckoning, which is supposedly directed by Supernatural producer McG.  As for the theme song, it’s the type of catchy ditty (“Ghost…ghostfacers!”) that you won’t be able to get out of your head.

“Ghostfacers” airs Thursday at 9pm on the CW.  To keep yourself busy until then, head on over to Ghostfacers.com for all of the hilarious extras.
