So, last night was FINALLY the American Ghost Hunter film tour!! I know I know……I am sharing with you all something very “weird” about me! If you know me or read my blog you will know/learn that I have always had a “thing” for paranormal! What was this event?? The cast of Paranormal State and Ghost Prophecies (both on A&E) came together and made a chilling documentary that showed the real life situation/nightmare one of them has been living thru! My friend Natalie and I bought our “Gold” passes back in like March so this was a long time coming…..
Here is Natalie and I when we just to to the meet and greet…..both of us were excited, anxious and nervous because we didn’t know what to expect!
This documentary American Ghost Hunter was amazing, I learned so much as we were taken inside one families private struggle with the supernatural. This film was chilling, insightful, scary and of course haunting. I can not wait to tell Matt all about this documentary and the weird connection between the land and local deaths that was explored in the film. Below the next picture is the trailer for the documentary you should watch it and get a jest see what we watched……
Here is Natalie and I with Chad Calek the man behind the story, and you have to admit this was very courageous of him to put so much “out there”, to show the world the darkest part of his life. You may also recognize him from the A&E Special Ghost Prophecies and Paranormal State as an evidence expert. Chad is one of the most sought out Paranormal Researchers in the US and you can learn more about him and his team by clicking HERE! We got to meet his whole team…Mary Beth, Joe and Justin!
Ah….yes!! Here is the founder of Paranormal Research Society Ryan Buell and star of the A&E reality paranormal show Paranormal State. (You can learn more about Ryan and his team by clicking HERE!)Before the documentary aired Natalie and I got to not only meet everyone involved but we got to attend a lecture given by Ryan and Chad. Ryan discussed his past, his scariest cases, Paranormal State and then they showed everyone private footage and personal evidence that never aired. It was amazing! What is amazing is that Ryan and his team work closely with the Vatican (Yes, the actual Vatican) on demonic cases and it was literally mind-blowing to hear what he had to say. And guys, if this is too much for you right now….sorry, it is kinda my freak flag!
This is Serg, the tech expert for PRS and he was so nice! I found out that we are actually currently reading the same book….small world! We got to spend a total of 6 hours with the cast……learning, meeting and watching the film…..amazing! But, we got to do something extra special (Drum roll)………
Now….you will NEVER believe what we got to do! SO….they did a charity auction to benefit the Shriner Burn Center which is close to Chad’s heart and what they auctioned off was private time on the TOUR Bus to ask them anything and hear never before told stories. So Natalie and I pooled money and over a course of lucky events we got to go on the tour bus with a handful of people…….
Here is Chad, Natalie and the 2 other woman who won this private time also! We were on their actual bus until 2am….listening to stories, watching special evidence clips and chatting about paranormal views and theories! This was hands down one of the neatest things we have ever done! I mean I can not believe our luck! it doesn’t seem like this actually happened…..it seems like a dream!
Cut to me………cheesy and thrilled to on the bus having such interesting conversations over the craziest things. I was like Natalie “hurry take the pic before they see what a nerd I am”!
Here is Ryan Buell getting ready to show us the original “pilot” of Paranormal State on A&E, it was funny to see how far they have come! Next we heard some private stories and I will tell you one of the stories he told us really freaked me out…I don’t want to repeat it but when I got home I had a hard time clearing out my mind. Ryan was so nice and acted as if we all were all the oldest of friends…..he told us his next book will be out next year (he autographed his current book for me)! I mean I LOVE this show and I loved his book and the fact that Natalie and I were actually sitting on his bus chit chatting! OMG! I mean really?
The Skirvin downtown was the perfect setting for the film, since the Skirvin is said to be haunted as well!
This is proof that I was ACTUALLY up at 2am! I did not get home and into bed until 3am this morning! I joked with the cast and told them they must be special because my normal bed time is like 10pm! ha!
Well guys….If something comes to me that I forgot I will blog about it later this week! But the stories we heard are not ones to type on a blog….so if you see me this week I will share a little! To read a prior blog post I did over Ryan’s book click HERE! I think that when I wrote that I never imagined I would be discussing things in his book in person!
So that was my Tuesday night…..how was yours? LOL
