About Me

Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I still communicate with him? I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I have been researching the paranormal for over 37 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one explainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.



Well after much anticipation, the Zak Bagans' Demon House finally aired last night on the Travel Channel.  So what did you think?  Did you find it to be fake or to be real?  There is one thing for sure, if Zak is involved, there is going to be yelling, a demon and more than likely......a possession.  And this documentary has Zak's name written all over it!!!!!  

I am going to break it down for you from the beginning to the end, so grab you a snack and "come on back".  Oh wait!  That's the Wendy Williams show.  LOL SPOILER ALERT:  If you have NOT seen the documentary yet, you may NOT want to read any further.

Zak Bagans has done it again!  Creating a buzz around one of his undying entertaining creations dealing with the paranormal.  Did I like this documentary about a Demon House that is so demonic that anyone who enters has life-long affects and sometimes even includes death?  You bet I did!!!  I think Zak has found his "niche".  This is by far, Zak Bagans best work yet.  We saw a different side of Zak last night.  A more claim, truly interested in the past events Zak.  Now, with that being said, do I think everything we saw last night was real...….well...……..this was a made for television documentary produced by Zak Bagans so the entertainment factor is a must!


Zak is walking all alone talking about being one of the worlds leading researchers of ghosts and demonology and how he was going to "crush this story"  but it was the one case that "Really Fu**ed him up".  He said he lost crew members during the filming, people became ill and even Zak himself stayed in his room for 8 days not feeling well.  Zak bought a house that had been reported as having one of the most compelling cases of demonic possession and exorcism in recent history and he bought it sight unseen.  WOW!!! Now that's a way to get a show started.  Right?????

The Ammons family that reported all the activity had moved out of the house and didn't want to be interviewed by Zak because supposedly they maybe in a contract for the movie rights.  This to me, was a crucial part of the documentary that wasn't told.  Some of the activity the Ammons family reported, were the children were partially being very affected, becoming angry and growling.  There is even a report that a little boy crawled up the wall in front of several witnesses.  

OK.  Let's stop right there.  A news reel from I believe Zak said 2012 shows the grandmother and a Family Protective Case Worker recounting the story of the young boy getting very violent and walking backwards up the walls!!!!!!  WALKING BACKWARDS UP THE WALLS!!!  HOLY SHI*!!!!

First, why is there even a Family Protective Service worker involved?  What had happened in the past that the family would have a case worker assigned?  The case workers name was Valerie Washington.  Later Zak does interview her via the computer as she has moved out of town.  This is what I found interesting about Valerie.  During the interview with the police after the incident, she was very animated when talking about seeing the boy walk backwards up the wall in the hospital.  She says that the boy had a violent episode and was taken to the hospital where she and several family members as well as a Dr. witnessed the boy talking in a deep, strange voice and growling wanting to kill people then walked up the wall backwards!  She also stated that she ran out of the room when she saw the boy crawling up the wall.  BUT HERE'S THE DEAL!!!  If you watch the police video where she is describing what happened she says, "the boy walked backwards up the wall and all the way around, and then came back and STOOD in front of them.  WAIT???? If you RAN OUT OF THE ROOM how would you know "he came back around and stood in front of everyone"???  And let's talk about the hospital.  Wouldn't there be a security camera monitoring the halls that would show Valerie and the Dr. running out of the room when the boy did what he did?  That would have been a very compelling piece of evidence to me that something happened to make them run out of the room.  But yet we didn't see that.  And why didn't we hear from the Dr. that was a witness.  Where these people that were persuaded to exaggerate the truth?  I'm not saying by Zak and them, I'm just saying in general.  Seems this house was causing quite the stir in Gary, Indiana.

Another thing that struck me as odd was when Zak talked with Valerie via the computer, she seemed very calm and in my opinion almost to calm.  Like she was trying to remember what she had said before.  Buts that's just my opinion. :)

Zak goes on to read parts of a police report that I guess, had been made at the time, and he reads a part that says, "the child lowers his head and headbutts the grandmother in the stomach".  BUT where is the part about the boy walking up the wall backwards in the police report?  I would think, that if something like that really happened, that would have been in the report. Just sayin....


Now, one thing about this documentary, I was on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what happened next!  Whether I was finding the witnesses creditable or not, Zak did a great job at presenting different perspective's  from people who had supposedly witnessed all this demonic activity.  Did I have questions?  You bet I do!!!!  But was that the intent from Zak?  To leave a little unanswered???? hhuuummmm  Good entertainment right?

This is the part I found a little bit out-there.  A family suddenly appears to drive by that used to live in the house and they just happen to have 3 children in the car with them just like the family that had moved out.  Zak warns he think the house has a demon in it but invites the family in anyway.  The family without hesitation goes into the home.  The lady never really offers any insight to the hauntings or activity other than she doesn't like the basement.  Ok people.  Really?  How many people really LIKE their basement?????

Zak asked if they know what has been going on here and the kids say "Yes, we have seen it on Facebook".  They acted liked they had definitely known about the house and what had been going on. They said their mother had told them about it as well.  But when Zak ask the Mom if she knew the other family that used to live here had 3 children also, she says, "No.  For real?"  As if this is a big shock to her.  But yet, her kids seem to know all about it.  

But let me tell, Ghost Adventures tries to keep it quiet when they are coming to town and that's understandable, but it never works out that way.  This could explain how and why the random sudden drive by occurs.  Could it have been they were aware Ghost Adventures were in town???

Ok... after the family leaves and two days later, in the middle of the night, Zak gets a call at his hotel from the mother saying her daughter that was in the house started acting out, screaming and yelling and tried to commit suicide by stabbing her wrist.  They were waiting on the police to come.  Zak says can you call me back and let me know what happens?  Really?  I don't care who you are, if your kid just tried to commit suicide, calling a producer of a ghost hunting show is NOT on my mind, especially even before the police arrive.  Again, just sayin'......


Among the many exorcisms preformed on the previous tenants, and the young girl that tried to commit suicide, the reports of accidents, health problems and even death keep coming as the people Zak comes in contact with in the house falls victim the demons that pledge this documentary.  

One night after filming, the camera guy seems to go into an angry, violent rage back at the hotel.  Hitting walls and screaming, acting completely out of control but what does Zak and the guys do, grab a camera and start filming.  Wouldn't you want to be trying to calm someone down?  Another thing that struck me as odd about this "demon possession" was they were back at the hotel and the camera guy was running up and down the hall yelling and screaming and banging on the elevators and not ONE GUEST from another room came out to see what was going on.  Not to mention, not one security guard came up to see what was going on.  I know there are camera's everywhere in hotels, so there is no way the hotel didn't know what was taking place on this floor in the hotel.  Not buying it.  

Zak states that the camera guy continues to act violently, so he had to let him go. 

One thing I did like and found to be believable, was the police that Zak interviewed.  There would be no reason for them to lie or make stuff up.  I really liked hearing what they had to say.


So, Zak does call in some experts and scientist to test things in and around the house.  These people also, seemed to be creditable witnesses.  The only thing I wasn't buying here was when the EMF meter was going off around Zak down in the basement.  Come on guys, one question.  Did Zak have a mic under his jacket?????  huummmm

Zak decides that he has to experience this house for himself.  He is concerned with all the bad things happening to people working on the documentary.  Is the house having an effect on them?  Could the demon that lives here really attack people somewhere else and be causing them harm?

Zak has the house boarded up with just himself inside.  No camera guys, no one but him.  The guys board up the windows and doors.  This is probably the bravest thing I have ever seen Zak do.  Usually he sends Aaron in, right?  And by the way, let's address the elephant in the room, where is Aaron?????  Zak says it took him 3 years to make this film.  In 3 years, no Aaron???????  For this entire documentary we don't see or hear about Aaron.  I think Zak should have addressed this in the very beginning.  Let the audience know what happened to Aaron and why he was not a part of this documentary so we don't continue to wonder the entire show!  Did he really think we wouldn't notice?

Zak spends the night alone in the house and suddenly begins to have problem with his eyes.  This would have a permanent affect on Zak.  He now has double vision and to correct the problem he would have to have surgery and there is a chance he could lose his sight permanently.  He has chosen to wear glasses to help correct this seemly life-long condition.

Zak decides that the only thing to do is to demo the house.  He can't risk anyone else being affected by these demons.  

So, in come the bull dozers, and down goes the house.  But you know, Zak has a museum full of really creepy stuff so he did keep some of the dirt and the stairs from the house.  I have been to the museum and seen the dirt and stairs, and if I am being honest, it was not creepy to me at all.

I do want to say that the lost footage they showed after the airing of Demon House, I found to contain great EVP sessions and some of the answers they received were pretty impressive.


Obviously, there is much more to the Demon House than I have talked about here.  I skipped a lot so you can watch it yourself and still be surprised.  I really thought this was put together very well, without all the theatrical drama we are used to seeing from Ghost Adventures.  I think Zak really tried to get to the bottom of what was going on with this so called Demon House and if the accounts of paranormal activity were real.  Good job Zak! 

Two things.  What I did not tell you was that two weeks before Zak purchased the Demon House he dreamed that he could see a goatman figure coming down stairs and blew a black mist that Zak breathed in.  The next day, Zak's lungs were hurting so to him this meant the dream was a warning and very real.

Now, for those of you who don't know me, and maybe this is your first time to visit my site, I filmed with Zak and the guys of Ghost Adventures for a Halloween special called Route 666. One of the evil spirits we encounter at a location we call Goatman's Bridge is a Goatman that is believed to have been summed here by a satanic ritual.  That's right, I said Goatman!  Zak and the guys said this is one of the most terrifying investigations they have ever done!  Does Zak's encounter with the Goatman at the bridge have anything to do with the demon and the dream he had?  Well, Zak and the crew did do a ritual out at the bridge and it has been said that in the basement of the Demon House a ritual could have been preformed to curse the family that lived there.  I am sorry.  But what I know about the bridge and the evil spirits there, I have to say, yes.  There is some sort of connection here!

Second thing, I don't remember if they showed this part very much on the Halloween Special but during the filming, one of their long time photographers had a very bad experience.  She was suddenly taken over by rage and anger which is very common for the females that visit the bridge.  We have a very bad spirit that attacks females often.  I felt so bad for her!!!  Her name was Ashely and immediately after filming at Goatman's Bridge she quite and today I understand still deals with the aftermath of that filming.

One of the things that caught me off guard was when the young girl that had visited the house and a couple days later tried to commit suicide was at the church having an exorcism done, when the camera paned down to her hands and she was sitting in a chair and what I call "ringing" her hands.  Which basely means she was cupping her hands together rubbing them over and over.  Immediately, I recognized this being a sign of demonic possession as I had seen it with Ashley (the photographer for Ghost Adventures) as she did this for almost 2 solid hours during filming when she was experiencing a demonic spirit we call Steve.  So for me, this was familiar as to the way you would react to a possession.  

Ashley's hands as she "rings" them.
Young lady that tried to commit suicide.

So this is purely a coincidence, but I have to take the time to have a shameless plug here because it just seems like such a coincidence that this documentary came out two weeks after my first book called The Secrets of Goatmans' Bridge where I talk, in detail, about the filming with Ghost Adventures and the experiences that affected them permanently.  Sorry, I know it's bad timing because I don't want it to take away from my review but I think it definitely pertains to parts of the show last night.  They even talk about it at one point.  You can find out more about the book on Amazon:

And guess what, here is the link to the Demon House documentary if you haven't seen it yet.  You don't have to go look for it, I'll post it right here.  Be sure to notice my cameo when they are talking about the demons in the house disguising themselves as someone else.  They show a clip from the bridge where we are talking about "STEVE".

Bottom line:  I found the documentary to be entertaining and it most defiantly kept me interested.  I enjoyed seeing Zak not being such a badass and more of a real investigator.  I will probably watch this more than once just to see if I missed anything. LOL
