If you will search around google you will see that most of these shows are faked for tv ratings and viewers. They may have some real stuff mixed in to make it look more realistic but most of it is just BS.
Ryan from Paranormal State has been under suspiscion a lot over the past few years because some of his crew mates openly admitted to leaving the show , especially Darcy the wiccan girl and the other guy that the looks like kinda nerdy, because they took it very seriously but they over heard Ryan telling Chip Coffee all the details about the hauntings before going into the homes. There is even one instance where a family sent them away after finding out about Chip and Ryan speaking in private, and told them they were not welcome anymore and then Darcy and the other guy went back to their house, the two that take this stuff very seriously and helped the family on their own.
As for spirits, my allies tell me there are low level wandering spirits, not always deceased humans, that are indeed full of rage and engage on this kind of stuff, even egregoric spirits that were created by religious magicians to play on the fears of the religious and make demons seem scary as hell (LOL, pun intended). We all know that religious people have made it their mission to scare people from demons by making them look horrible, scare away from magick so we do not come into our full powers and reach godhood by scaring us with storiesof Satan and Hell.
But many of these religious people know about magick, obviously those people know about magick because they do exorcisms which are a form of banishing, aka magick. They have been also been tryiing to exert their control on the astral plane as well as have created egregoric spirits to further enforce that their religion is true, and there are several other magicians I know who have been told the same things recently.
They are not only using these spirits to make movie like hauntings look real but they are having some of these spirits pose as higher level demons so magicians who are new or do not think to ask for verification of the demon’s identity, or those being careless or drunk while evoking, will get the impostor spirit, thinking it’s the real deal ask for something and the spirit takes the offerings and never returns, never follows thru, making people think these upper level demons are liars and con artists to scare them away.
It may sound far fetched to everyone else but come on, you know how pushy these religious folks are and that they have already gone to great lengths to enforce their beliefs upon others so, does this really sound so far fetched after all? Probably not. They automatically associate these ghosts with demons on those shows for thrill factor. I even saw something a while back where Michelle Belanger had stopped working with Ryan because she took her work seriously and was not only upset that he started labeling every spiriti as a demon because those episodes get more views and better ratings but because her working with him was supposedly giving her a bad repuation as being non-creditable.
Not sure about that one as I know there are many magicians who do not take Michelle seriously at all because most of her demonic associations are taken from old grimoires that have been misleading people for centuries.
