    • at 8:25 i heard a 'mayday' which would make sense in the sequence of "help"; "please help me". soooo could it have been that you guys picked up someone's distress signal? as in a real actual human not a ghoul. #shaniac #postmortem

  • Anthony Fox: “Please help me, I’m buried in this cupboard!” River Phoenix: “Thank you for being a fan of my work, I appreciate that.” Ryan: “Well, I guess it’s still unsolved!”

  • “The manager of the bar reports seeing people pass out or fall over.” In other news, the manager of the bar also serves alcohol...

  • Shane, Ryan can't you hear the voice saying help me

  • Hey do you think that the squeaking sound at 21:40 is a call for help from Anthony? I mean he’d been asking for help the whole time and maybe he wanted them to know that he’s down there. That’s low key sad man :(

  • 4:20

  • Such a shame about River Phoenix. My Own Private Idaho is one of my favorite movies and I always feel such a sad longing when I come across a movie I think he would have been perfect in. He clearly had so much potential and likely would have become an iconic actor or even musician in time.

  • I think a good way to maybe talk to ghosts is to take your phone, open up the notes/memos, and ask them to type something on the phone by tapping the screen. Then set the phone either in your lap or to the side and closing your eyes or looking away until the screen shuts off. Then turning it back on to see if there is a message. Sure it could be kind of easy to fake, but if you keep a camera on it the whole time and have screen recording going you might be able to get something.

  • It really hurts my heart that Ryan nor Shane did anything for Anthony! He kinda just acted like he didn’t hear the help me and that Anthony confirmed him being buried down there. He went in there to find out about Anthony and made no comment about it when he did. It was so odd. I’ve never heard a spirit beg for help like that before. It seemed so urgent to really help him. I want to dig Anthony up so bad! it was weird how Ryan acted so calm in there. I think it’s how the spirit affected him in the room. Seeing how anthony wanted help I don’t think he would give off the vibe to scare Him especially if he needed him. Idk I’m mad I wish there was more done about this.

  • The viper room is otherwise one of the most depressing haunted buildings in America honestly. All accounts of Ghost sighting or hearings mostly involve calls for help from the spirits. Its genuinely just sad, We dont even know whats going on, In there side. Could just be the fact that they are stuck in a building for eternity, Or they still feel whatever killed them permanently. They just want to escape it seems like
