The television show, Supernatural, has been exploring the dark paranormal corners of the country ever since September of 2005.
This series will take anyone on a wild roller-coaster ride by having them feeling on edge one minute, then clinging onto the suspense and laughing the next.
Sam and Dean Winchester are the show’s main protagonists who take weird to a new level.
Their whole life has been strange since the moment a yellow-eyed demon took their mother’s life at a young age.
The creator of the series, Eric Kripke, crafted the characters’ personalities to be different from each other, with a dissimilar point of view on life and the paranormal.
Dean Winchester, portrayed by Jensen Ackles, loves his ‘67 black Chevrolet Impala, classic rock, killing monsters, and has always been the good son who embraced the hunter’s lifestyle without a second thought.
He brings the humor by making witty remarks and shameless flirting that gives purpose to Sam’s eye-roll.
Ever since his mother’s death, his father devoted himself to track down the demon.
With this, it fell to Dean to help parent Sam and go to excessive lengths to protect his brother.
In short, death means nothing on the show when it comes to the brothers’ lives.
They’ve come back many times in various haunting ways that no one imagined could be possible.
Sam Winchester, portrayed by Jared Padalecki, loves reading and repeatedly sacrifices himself for others, highlighting his selfless nature.
Though when it came to joining the family business in the beginning, he was rebellious and took no interest in the paranormal.
He preferred the normal life and set off with attending law school at Stanford with no intentions of returning home.
Things changed when Dean stopped by asking for help after claiming that their father went on a hunting trip and he hadn’t been home in a few days.
Sam joined his brother on the road for a brief moment but was persuaded to continue when Sam’s girlfriend suffered the same terrible fate as his mother.
The Winchesters take on the responsibility of hunting creatures that go bump in the night with their motto: saving people, hunting things, the family business.
With tools like the demon blades, spray paint to draw a devil’s trap, holy water, and wooden stakes placed in the back of the trunk, the brothers are prepared to take on any evil foe: Wendigos, shape shifters, vampires, demons, angels, wraiths, ghosts, leviathans, witches, Bloody Mary and The Hook Man are to name a few.
With Sam being the brains and Dean being the muscle, this combination helps bring down dreadful monsters such as changelings who appear human but have the appearance of hollow eyes, tarnished slimy skin, and a round mouth with sharp teeth ready to feed on humans.
Having an angel best friend, Castiel, portrayed by Misha Collins, gives them an advantage when battling the paranormal.
Especially when they take on an enemy such as Satan himself.
Being an angel, Castiel shows little to no emotion since he’s a warrior.
Learning human behavior so he can fit in, adds a bit of more humor and blends well with the series’ ongoing story.
Supernatural is a mind-blowing show that contains believable and well-written characters, a haunting and nail biting story line, and humor done right.
It’s no wonder why fans have stuck by its side for so long.
A fan, Juanita Lorenzo, shared her thoughts on why the show would be suitable for horror lovers.
“It has a good story, humor, sadness, and leaves you wanting to know what happens next,” shared Lorenzo.
Supernatural is America’s longest-running live action fantasy with 13 seasons and counting.
Netflix has 12 terrifying seasons, while Thursdays on the CW television network continues the frightening tale.
With just about every wicked urban legend brought to life, the Winchesters are on the road hunting down every evil supernatural force and putting an end to people’s nightmares.
