One family’s dream of owning a Montana ranch turns into a nightmare when they discover it comes with more than just horses and history in Travel Channel and Discovery+’s new series “The Ghost Town Terror,” premiering this March.
On the outskirts of Anaconda, Montana, sits Gunslinger Gulch – a sprawling ghost town and guest ranch made up of various historic abandoned buildings salvaged from across the state. When the Broussard family answered the beckoning call of a new life in Big Sky Country and opportunity to own this unique 52-acre property, they got more than they bargained for. They soon discovered the ranch offered anything but the serene Montana lifestyle they were seeking. Relentless, menacing supernatural activity has plagued the family since day one, leaving them terrified and desperate for answers.
After more than a year of paranormal attacks, including unexplained scratches, apparitions, disembodied voices and poltergeist activity, Karen and her family – daughter Chloe, 20, and sons Cameron, 21, and Colby, 15 – are distraught and in dire need of help. Paranormal investigator Tim Wood and paranormal researcher Sapphire Sandalo come to their aid and soon discover the entire town has a disturbingly dark history, and an oppressive energy has taken over. Facing a particularly ominous situation, they call in backup – psychic medium Sarah Lemos, who is immediately affected by negative forces, and Wood’s longtime friend and fellow investigator, Scott Di Lalla.
The team’s extensive investigation uncovers a heinous unsolved murder, mysterious open-ground pits, bone findings, alarming EVPs, startling physical attacks and most frightening, that an evil entity may have attached itself to a family member. They’re led on a windy, eerie hunt beyond Gunslinger Gulch and into the towns of Anaconda and nearby Butte to a historic brothel and abandoned house, rife with their own merciless history. The team discovers these buildings have uncanny ties back to the ranch and the Broussards. As Tim and Sapphire work to get closer to the truth behind the haunting, the activity only grows stronger and more diabolical – making even the hunters feel hunted. The investigation of Gunslinger Gulch has become a battle of wills.
“This is a series that’s going to hook you until the very end,” said Matthew Butler, general manager, Travel Channel & Paranormal Streaming Content. “Told across six episodes, it’s an incredibly complex paranormal investigation and dark mystery that starts out as one thing and becomes something even bigger, all while transporting viewers to a real guest ranch in the heart of beautiful Montana.”
