#41 Into the spider closet [S4E9 with Will Hines]

#41 Into the spider closet [S4E9 with Will Hines]

Kyle is out this episode, but in his place we have guest host Will Hines! Will Hines is a comedian who performs at UCB LA and co-hosted the podcast “Don’t Get Me Started.”

Will hasn’t seen the original show before and is a hardline skeptic.

Story 1: The Wealthy Widow – A man marries a widow and goes looking for her late husband’s buried fortune.

  • Who tells this story?… since the man is dead and the other witness is a ghost? Will thinks maybe the widow murdered both husbands.
  • Everyone agrees the ghost taunting the husband is the best part.

Story 2: The Witness – A group of girls avenges their friend’s murder by summoning her spirit.

  • Tiffany thinks the girls just knew details about the suspect and relayed it to the police.
  • Will thinks it’s very similar to the movie The Craft.

Story 3: The Accident – A year after a man saves someone in a car accident, he finds himself in a similar situation.

  • The group debates the integrity of windshields.
  • The group uses the coincidence rule. Except for Will, who thinks it’s too obviously fact, that it must be fiction.

Story 4: Bad Dreams – A woman’s deadly predictions about her 30th birthday seem to be coming true.

  • All agree this is one of the better stories, with an actual twist ending.
  • Chris had a premonition about running to neighbors, and then seconds later ran into them. Is that really a premonition though?

Story 5: Mental – A couple pretending to have telekinetic abilities discover something incredible when they face real danger.

  • Is this just a story the couple told to drum up business?
  • It’s crazy to think she had powers but then could never use them again.

During our ad-break, we read and listen to audience-submitted stories that are very Beyond Belief…

The story results are revealed.

  • Our guest-host Will only guessed one correctly and 100 percent questions the integrity of Beyond Belief’s research.
  • To find out which stories are fact and which are fiction… you must listen to the podcast, or check out the full episode below or on Amazon Prime.

Mark still can’t decide on an intro, and there’s a theme to this episode: Dreams. And Revenge. Umm.

Story 1: The Nightmare—a woman who’s having nightmares of her husband dying, sets into a motion a specific sequence of events.

  • Mark still believes that dreams can predict the future. Jesse thinks it’s more like deja vu.
  • Most don’t believe that a person could stab a bush with shears in such a way that it would impale someone.
  • Tiffany thinks the woman killed the man and came up with this crazy story.
  • Everyone is impressed by how smart and competent they portray the groundskeeper.

Story 2: The Stalker—a widow & daughter are plagued by visions of a horrible ex-boyfriend through the fathers compact.

  • Turns out men don’t know what women’s compacts are.
  • No one understands how a man can be thwarted by shining light in his eyes.

Story 3: The Impossible Car Dream—a boy’s dream of his dream car comes true, but with a twist of vengeance.

  • Tiffany feels this is realistic but doesn’t see how it was told.
  • Jesse points out that it feels like a local news story, but who pieced it all together?
  • The 16 year old son was definitely played by a middle aged man.
  • They point out the weird dream sequence and how repetitive it is.

Story 4: The Dresser—a hot shot decorator takes over the mannequin display, only to discover some may not want him there.

  • The group agrees this is one of the wackiest stories yet.
  • Jesse thinks the man came up with this mannequin story to get out of the job.
  • Can it be too fiction to be fiction (TFTBF)?
  • Somewhat similar to The Twilight Zone episode The After Hours.

Story 5: The Burial—a tale of premature burial in the historical South ends in a shocking discovery.

  • Historical stories tend to be fact.
  • Kyle thinks it sounds like an urban legend for a southern hero.
  • Jesse couldn’t understand a word any of these men were saying.
