#33 The journey of the ouija [S4E1]

This is the season 4 premiere! And apparently it’s already Chris’s favorite season… Kyle’s loving it too.  The stories this season look like they’re shot with more cinematic direction. The group misses Don Lafontaine’s opening voiceover. There’s now a new voice to Beyond Belief, and that man’s name is Campbell Lane. There’s also so much Jonathan Frakes that Kyle feels like he’s in Frake-ception.

Story 1: The Devil’s Signature—after being found not guilty in court, a man admits to killing his wife, but then karma catches up to him when he slips and gets impaled by a pen.

  • Tiffany wonders how this story would even get out.
  • Kyle’s on the “it seems so possible” bandwagon.
  • Everyone pretends to be in the South for a minute.

Story 2: Mail Order Degree—a scam artist gets his comeuppance when a voodoo doll portends his death. Turns out, the place he hides his money causes him to get deadly radiation poisoning.

  • Mark forgot that the voodoo doll was part of the story.
  • If the guy dies because of radiation poisoning from the nearby radiology department, Chris wonders what the people who work IN the radiology department look like.
  • Mark compares this slow death to the transformation in the movie “The Fly.”
  • Kyle’s problem is the lead component. What?
  • Is this Beyond Belief’s first body horror story? No.
  • Chris locks in the wrong vote!

Story 3: The News Stand—a homeless kid gets assistance from a news stand owner, who later dies & passes along the business to the kid. The kid then finds out it was his biological father.

  • The group criticizes Chris for basing his predictions on past episodes. What’s wrong with that?
  • Tiffany points out that the 15-year-old kid plays Steve in Showtime’s Shameless. Meanwhile, Chris thought he looked like “Malcolm in the Middle of a Garbage Can.”
  • Jesse thinks the dad might just be lying about being his father. Chris and Mark think this can get complicated.

Story 4: The Murder of Roy Hennessey—two teens witness a murder… and realize that it happened two years prior.

  • Finally Chris can bring in some Ghostly Rules into this show! …And he might also have a really obviously fake book coming out about it.
  • Kyle brings up the fact that he’s a published forward author, which we do indeed confirm! You can check out his forward in the book Game of Thrones Psychology: The Mind is Dark and Full of Terrors.
  • Jesse wonders why the ghost of the victim didn’t just tell authorities two years ago.

Story 5: Mysterious Strangers—two mysterious strangers encounter and old woman and change the course of her life forever.

  • Kyle admits that he didn’t know Frank James (brother of Jesse James) was real… then everyone else admits they didn’t know either.
  • Tiffany points out that we all thought Zerelda was going to turn out to be evil. Jesse agrees, pointing out that her campy acting made her seem disingenuous. Kyle had a coven of witches flashback.
  • Jesse brings up the kernel of truth: “Did anyone else think this was a prequel to The Legend of Zerelda: A Bank to the Past…?” Mark and Jesse nerd out over Zelda’s lullaby.
  • Mark and Jesse discuss: who told this story? Mark thinks that this story was talked about on the news. Jesse pushes back: THE NEWS? Was Walter Cronkite reporting on train robberies?
  • Tiffany thinks this story stems from a family folk tale.

In this episode we begin our Journey of the Ouiji.

The story results are revealed.
