Suddenly the room temperature went cold and he sensed that something was wrong. He felt his back shivers, after a matter of seconds he turned around and pulled the trigger to the ghost’s head. The spirit disappeared into smoke but it’s still not the end of the story.

Supernatural is an American television series by Eric Kripke. The show follows brothers Sam and Dean Winchester, who travel across America in a black 1967 Chevy Impala investigating and combating paranormal events and other unexplained occurrences, many of them based on American urban legends and folklore as well as classic supernatural creatures such as vampires, werewolves, and ghosts.

The two brothers, bound by tragedy and blood to their mission, travel across the country encountering terrifying and dangerous forces most believe to be nothing but superstition and folklore, such as the Lady in White, the Indian beast known as the Wendigo, Phantom Travelers who cause plane crashes, Bloody Mary, vampires, demons and many more.

The series is filmed in Vancouver, British Columbiaand surrounding areas and was in development for nearly ten years, as creator Kripke spent several years unsuccessfully pitching it. The (pilot was viewed by an estimated 5.69 million viewers and the ratings of the first four episodes prompted The WB to pick up the series for a full season. Originally, Kripke planned the series for three seasons but later expanded it to five. The (fifth season concluded the series’ main storyline,and Kripke departed the series as showrunner.

The TV series sends shivers down my spine every time I watch it and you will never have a boring moment because the story twists itself the least you expect it. Supernatural is the kind of TV series you must watch if you like fantasy, horror and mystery stories, also for people who like adrenaline rush. “The story is unpredictable, you don’t know what will happen next, plus the two mysterious hunks that play the roles of two brave hunters are just fantastic, it’s a very thrilling TV series.” says Leah Pasadilla a die-hard fan of supernatural.

It is exciting because of the setting, the characters and the story itself. Each episode has different story that connects to a big story. These sub-stories are knitted together to form the whole story. Most people I know who watch this series uploads all the episodes so they can watch it continuously.

Effects of the paranormal life

The series is about the paranormal life of brother that live from their parents past, its their destiny to hunt monsters and to save the world. What’s interesting in the story is that there are angels, demons, deities, prophets, ghost, vampires, and other monsters.

Dean and Sam Winchester hunts different kind of monsters, they were thought by their father and after their father died, they promised to each other to kill the demon who killed their father. Not until Sam started the apocalypse which cause Lucifer to get out of hell. Also they found out that there are the vessels of the two brothers or the two great archangels Lucifer and Michael. Chaos began when they knew about their destiny, Dean and Sam are fated to have a blood bath war against each other to save the world from the chaos of hell. The story has a mix of theology and different myths from different culture. But, if you look at the big picture the story really wants us to know that all things connect to one thing.

The setting is in different parts of america, like pennsylvania, detroit, seattle, and other places. The places where they shoot gives that eerie effect when you’re watching, it makes you imagine yourself at that place which is really thrilling to think of, that is why place or the setting plays a big support to the story. However, the characters gives life to the story, the results and the impact of the story lies in their hands. Creating a horror TV series is not very easy, it takes skills and talents from the actors to bring the story to life. The story lies in their ability to project emotions and actions that will satisfy the audience. Moreover, the aura of the characters have that mysterious effect that makes you wonder what are their hiding and what are their real roles in the story.

The music also has an important role in the series, watching a film or a TV series is boring without sudden eerie sounds, or loud scream and more. The sound effects are the reasons why the audience is thrilled to wait for the next move of the character or what will happen next. sound processes used to emphasize artistic or other content of films, television shows, live performance, animation, video games, music, or other media. In motion picture and television production, a sound effect is a sound recorded and presented to make a specific storytelling or creative point without the use of dialogue or music.It is well known that music and sound are greatly involved in the production of dread, having the peculiar ability to produce eerie atmospheres, to express angst and proverbially to frighten us out of our wits. It attacks the nervous system physically, with the aid of psychoacoustics and in more abstract way because one interprets the presence of evil or understands the melody of terror.

The reality check

Supernatural is a product of a creative mind who seeks answers beyond the capacity of what this world can answer. It gives us a different kind of perspective of what lies outside the boundaries of reality, what is, what if, and why it is. These are the starting words that begin to open our mind on different aspects of life. We all have wonders in this world on how it began, how is everything connected to each other and how these things exist in the first. We don’t have all the answer for these questions, beliefs from different culture somehow supply the hypothesis to these questions. But, what I do believe is we are a yarn knitted to each other to form a huge blanket. We all are connected to each other somehow and there are still some questions we cannot answer until it is in front of us. I can only say from this moment, never stop you mind to imagine things beyond reality you never know what you can get out of it.
