Thrill Laboratory present: "The Experiment"

"For one night only, Thrill Laboratory present an experiment like no other: real scientists, real subjects and the live medical examination of a haunted building. University researchers have developed cutting-edge technology to capture the effect of invoked paranormal activity on the bodies and minds of the susceptible. Dr Brendan Dare brings to you the unpredictable results of their scientific research from the remote basement of a reputed Broad Street haunting, which will be filmed and transmitted real-time to a live cinema audience."

  1. what happened to all the other experiments?? we need to measure more than a handful of volunteers, we need serious numbers of people (like over 100 to be statistically significant). Also, this whole entertainment angle really worries - it might scupper validation of this research.

  2. whooaaa! hang on josh, I never said we were doing this separately to the Haunt experiment. That's still going to happen with the students, and WITHOUT the entertainment angle. It'll be in private, and we'll have all the time in the world to meet the criteria for a 'proper' scientific experiment. The idea of "Thrill Laboratory" presenting "The Experiment" is all about public communication. We might still get some valid results, which would be a bonus, right?

  6. My husband and I have applied to take part in the experiment. I have been interested in the paranormal since a very early age and have taken part in a few events over the last couple of years (via paranormal events companies) and even hosted a few last year. A woman said to me once 'but you're the host, you aren't supposed to be scared' my reply was 'Nobody said we can't be scared, the only difference between you and I is that you can run, as the host I can't'. If we don't get chosen I would love to be kept up to date on your paranormal experiments and maybe have the chance to take part at some other time.
