With a combination of tested paranormal theory, southern savvy and backwoods ingenuity, TWC is the most equipped team out there to pull off this seemingly impossible task. Each week, the team will arrive at a new imposing asylum looking to separate facts from folklore using every trick in their Southern arsenal to try and bag an otherworldly prize. These frightening locations are every ghost hunters dream and TWC's quest is to make these haunting dreams a reality.
