Guillermo del Toro joins forces with 'Ghost Hunters' for 'Mama'

According to a new press release from Syfy, the network's longest running reality series is kicking off its ninth season with two Hollywood investigations - and they'll be receiving some social media help from a paranormal pop culture director as well.

In the Jan. 16 episode, airing tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET, Ghost Hunters investigate the Sowden House, where Elizabeth Short (aka "The Black Dahlia,") was gruesomely murdered. They'll also be heading to Madame Tussauds Hollywood. Also worth mentioning is the fact that ghost hunter Britt Griffith was one of the lead actor's in the horror movie, The Black Dahlia Haunting - so that's a pretty cool synchronicity.

Then, at 10 p.m., Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) will take over the @GhostHunters Twitter account for a live Q&A about Mama, the supernatural horror opening Friday which he produces.

Says the release:
Universal Pictures serves as the presenting on-air sponsor of the Ghost Hunters season premiere, showcasing the upcoming theatrical release of Mama. The film’s executive producer, Guillermo del Toro, will bring the Syfy audience exclusive content on Mama through a series of hosted wraps. These will lead up to an exclusive Premiere Imagination clip which will air during the premiere of Syfy’s latest original series, Ghost Mine, at 10 PM ET/PT.  
So tomorrow sounds like a big night for the GH gang. But if you think this is the first time del Toro and  TAPS have interacted, you'd be wrong. Just take a look at the clip below for a refresher when a really big paranormal investigator meets the plumbers.
