THERE'S A VERY INTELLIGENT, DARK ENTITY HERE.

THE BASEMENT HAS ALWAYS JUST HAD AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FEEL.

(Zak) DO YOU THINK THAT PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN THIS FIRE?

YES, I DO.

(echoing voice) AAH!

WHO'S HERE WITH US?

IS THERE ANY DANGER FOR ANY OF THE PEOPLE

HERE IN THIS HOUSE?

(muffled voice) IS SOMEBODY DOING THIS TO US?

MY NAME IS ZAK BAGANS.

I NEVER BELIEVED IN GHOSTS

UNTIL I CAME FACE-TO-FACE WITH ONE.

(gasps)

YOU WANTED US. YOU GOT US.

SO I SET OUT ON A QUEST

TO CAPTURE WHAT I ONCE SAW ONTO VIDEO.

(Nick) GO, GO, GO!

WITH NO BIG CAMERA CREWS FOLLOWING US AROUND,

I AM JOINED ONLY BY MY FELLOW INVESTIGATOR NICK GROFF

AND OUR EQUIPMENT TECH AARON GOODWIN.

THE THREE OF US WILL TRAVEL TO

SOME OF THE MOST HIGHLY ACTIVE PARANORMAL LOCATIONS,

WHERE WE WILL SPEND AN ENTIRE NIGHT

BEING LOCKED DOWN FROM DUSK UNTIL DAWN.

YOU HAVE REACHED YOUR FINAL DESTINATION--

HELL.

RAW...

STOP!

EXTREME...

(Nick) OH, MY (bleep)!

(Zak) STOP! STOP RUNNING!

(shouts indistinctly)

THESE ARE OUR GHOST ADVENTURES.

WE'RE AT THE PALMER HOUSE HOTEL IN SAUK CENTRE, MINNESOTA,

BECAUSE THE OWNER HAS CALLED US

FOR WHAT MAY BE AN INFESTATION OF UNEXPLAINED EVENTS

THAT ARE MANIFESTING IN APPARITIONS,

DARK SHADOW FIGURES...

AND A DEMONIC PRESENCE?

BUILT IN 1864 AS THE SAUK CENTRE HOUSE,

IT WASN'T UNTIL A MYSTERIOUS FIRE IN 1900

BURNED THAT BUILDING TO THE GROUND,

AND FROM THOSE ASHES ROSE THE PALMER HOUSE.

BUILT BY RALPH AND CHRISTENA PALMER,

IT BECAME A FIRST-CLASS HOTEL AND SALOON

WHOSE PRIMARY PATRONS WERE TRAVELING SALESMEN

BROUGHT IN BY RAILROAD.

(bell clangs, train whistle blows)

SINCE 1901, THE ORIGINS OF THAT FIRE REMAIN A MYSTERY.

IT'S BEEN SAID THAT INNOCENT PEOPLE HIDING

IN THE BASEMENT PERISHED IN THAT BLAZE.

COULD THOSE VICTIMS BE THE REASON BEHIND

THE INCESSANT DARK HAUNTINGS HERE AT THE PALMER HOUSE?

WE'RE HERE TO FIND OUT.

YOU KNOW, WE'VE BEEN HEARING, UH,

A LOT ABOUT THIS LOCATION.

SOME OF THESE EXPERIENCES, THAT NOT ONLY YOU YOURSELF

ARE HAVING, BUT A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE,

ARE ALL KINDA DARK-NATURED.

YES, THEY ARE.

THE BASEMENT HAS ALWAYS JUST HAD AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FEEL.

IT CAN BE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.

AND THAT'S WHY YOU CALLED US HERE?

YES, THAT IS.

RIGHT NOW, WE ARE HEADED DOWN INTO THE BASEMENT,

AND THIS IS WHAT WE TRAVELED HERE FOR.

THIS IS WHY KELLEY HAS CALLED US,

IS BECAUSE OF WHAT IS LINGERING DOWN HERE.

(static crackles)

A STRANGER TOLD ME ABOUT A DREAM THAT THEY'D HAD,

AND THEY'D NEVER HEARD OF THE PALMER HOUSE.

A GENTLEMAN APPEARS TO HER, AND HE'S BASICALLY TELLING HER,

"IT'S TIME FOR MY STORY TO BE TOLD."

SHE TOLD ME WHERE THERE WAS A BODY BURIED.

(both speaking inaudibly)

(Kelley) UNDERNEATH A SET OF STAIRS

THAT SHE VERY SPECIFICALLY HAD TOLD ME WHERE HE WOULD BE,

I STARTED THE DIGGING WITH, UH, A LARGE SPOON

FROM THE KITCHEN.

WHAT DID YOU FIND?

I STARTED TO FIND BONES,

A LOT OF RIB BONES.

DID YOU EVER FIND OUT IF THEY WERE ANIMAL BONES

OR HUMAN BONES?

NO, UM, AND THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

WHEN I WENT TO RETRIEVE THEM THE NEXT DAY,

THEY WERE ALL GONE.

DO YOU THINK THAT PEOPLE WERE KILLED

IN THIS FIRE DOWN HERE?

YES, I DO.

(coughs)

COULD THE ACTIVITY IN THE PALMER HOUSE BE TRACED BACK

TO ANY TRAPPED, UNRESTED SPIRITS

WHO WERE VICTIMS OF THIS FIRE?

WE CONDUCT THE REST OF THIS INTERVIEW

WITH OUR NIGHT VISION AND THERMAL CAMERAS

TO SEE IF WE CAN DOCUMENT ANY EVIDENCE

TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY,

BUT AS WE'RE ABOUT TO CONTINUE...

DO YOU FEEL LIKE...

(exhales deeply)

ARE YOU OKAY?

(inhales sharply)

(exhales deeply)

(voice breaking) I FEEL SURROUNDED.

I FEEL... (gasps)

(beeping)

(sniffles and exhales deeply)

WHOA.

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.

(sobs)

0.8.

(exhales deeply)

0.8 AND 0.5.

WHEW. I FEEL TIGHTNESS IN MY CHEST.

DUDE.

WHOA. (exhales deeply)

I FEEL, LIKE,

JUST SLAMMED BY--

THIS IS GOING OFF. LOOKIT.

THIS IS DOCUMENTING RIGHT NOW.

(sniffles and exhales deeply)

THERE'S SOMETHING AROUND YOU, OKAY?

A 1.3. ARE YOU GETTING THAT?

1.3 TO A 1.0

TO A 0.8 TO A 0.4 TO A 0.2.

WITH THIS HIGH LEVEL OF ENERGY AROUND US,

WE IMMEDIATELY BEGIN ROLLING

ON OUR NIGHT VISION CAMERAS AND EQUIPMENT.

IF THERE'S SOMEBODY HERE,

YOU JUST MADE KELLEY CRY UNCONTROLLABLY.

WE FELT YOU. WE DOCUMENTED YOUR PRESENCE.

CAN YOU SHOW US WHO YOU ARE?

I'M GONNA PICK UP THE MEL METER RIGHT NOW,

AND I'M GONNA HOLD IT IN THE EXACT AREA

THAT I WAS HOLDING IT AT THE TIME

THAT KELLEY WAS HAVING THIS EXPERIENCE.

OUR MEL METER,

WHICH WAS RECEIVING SPIKES UP TO A 1.9 MILLIGALS,

IS NOW BASELINED AT A 0.0 IN THE SAME EXACT SPOT.

IT IS JUST COINCIDENCE THAT WHEN KELLEY AND OURSELVES FELT

THIS SUDDEN IMPACT OF DARK ENERGY,

OUR MEL METER SIMULTANEOUSLY DOCUMENTED

AN UNEXPLAINED ENERGY PRESENCE?

AND NOW KELLEY OPENS UP TO US ABOUT AN APPARITION

SHE ONCE WITNESSED IN THIS VERY SAME SPOT.

(Kelley) THERE WAS...

(growls)

A LARGE BLACK DOG, WOLF AND--

A CREATURE-LOOKING THING?

YES.

(growl)

AND--

AND RED EYES.

KELLEY, THAT'S NOT GOOD. THAT'S DEMONIC.

BASED ON THIS SHOCKING INFORMATION,

I IMMEDIATELY END OUR INTERVIEW,

AND WE PASS THE DIGITAL RECORDER

OVER TO BILLY TOLLEY, OUR AUDIOVISUAL TECH.

WHILE HE ANALYZES THESE E.V.P.s,

WE CONTINUE OUR INVESTIGATION OF THE BASEMENT.

ACTUALLY, WHERE I FOUND THE BONES WOULD'VE BEEN

RIGHT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT WALL.

(Zak) ALL RIGHT, I AM GETTING CHILLS RIGHT NOW.

COMING HERE, LISTENING TO THE STORIES, IT--

IT'S REALLY REMINDING ME OF DÉJÀ VU AT BOBBY MACKEY'S.

CARL LAWSON DUG IN THE WELL

AND DISCOVERED UNDERNEATH THOSE FLOORBOARDS

THE PORTAL THAT OPENED THAT LOCATION

TO ALL OF ITS DEMONIC HAUNTINGS.

HERE WE HAVE KELLEY, AND YOU CAN SEE

ALL THE IMPLEMENTS THAT SHE USED, THE SPOONS.

(Nick) IT'S A WEIRD RESEMBLANCE.

BASED ON THE ENERGY SURROUNDING KELLEY IN THE BASEMENT,

WE TAKE BASELINE MEL METER READINGS

THROUGHOUT THE PROPERTY.

OUR SWEEP RESULTED

IN AN OVERALL 0.0 MILLIGALS READING,

WHICH VALIDATES THE ENERGY SHE EXPERIENCED

ONLY MOMENTS AGO.

THE MOST DISTURBING ENCOUNTER WITH THE PARANORMAL

IS POSSESSION.

WE WATCH PERSONAL VIDEO OF CHRIS SCHNEIDER,

WHO CLAIMS SHE RECENTLY FELL VICTIM TO A POSSESSION

HERE IN THE BASEMENT OF THE PALMER HOUSE.

(slurring) YOU NEED TO TALK TO ME.

GET OUT.

(man) I THINK WE NEED TO PULL HER AWAY FROM THE AREA.

ALL THE DOGS ARE DOWN HERE, AND I GOTTA TAKE CARE OF THEM.

TIME TO GO AWAY.

THE DOGS ARE OKAY.

OH, OH, OH, OH, OH, OH!

WHOA.

(grunts) CHRIS?

HAS THIS HAPPENED TO YOU BEFORE?

ONLY ONCE BEFORE, BUT NOT TO THIS LEVEL.

WELL, OBVIOUSLY THIS SPIRIT IS WANTING TO BE HEARD,

BUT DID YOU FEEL IT COMING THROUGH YOU?

IT'S LIKE I WAS THERE WATCHING EVERYTHING HAPPEN,

BUT I COULDN'T PREVENT ANYTHING.

(slurring) ALL THE DOGS ARE DOWN HERE,

AND I GOTTA TAKE CARE OF THEM.

(Zak) COULD THE "DOGS" CHRIS IS REFERRING TO BE

ONE OF THE DOGLIKE CREATURES THAT KELLEY TOLD US ABOUT

ONLY HOURS AGO?

DOG, WOLF...

IF SO, THIS SIMILAR ENTITY EXPERIENCED

BY TWO SEPARATE PEOPLE IS WORTH IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION.

(echoing voice) THE DOGS ARE DOING JUST FINE.

WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE YOU DOWNSTAIRS.

WE JUST WANT TO SEE

IF WE CAN DOCUMENT ANY EVIDENCE AROUND YOU.

ABSOLUTELY.

AS WE PREPARE TO HEAD INTO THE BASEMENT WITH CHRIS,

OUR MEL METER SUDDENLY BEGINS ALARMING...

(beeping)

AROUND HER.

(muffled voice) WHAT IS IN YOU, WOMAN?

(chuckles)

THE GHOSTS KNOW ME.

LOOK AT THIS.

THAT DOES NOT DO THAT.

(Nick) HAVE HER HOLD IT.

(beeping continues)

WOW.

BAFFLED BY THESE READINGS...

(beeping)

WE QUICKLY GRAB ANOTHER MEL METER TO CONFIRM

IF WHAT WE ARE READING IS ACCURATE.

YEAH, AND THEY'RE BOTH DEFINITELY GETTING SIGNALS

AROUND HER.

I'M A MAGNET MAYBE.

AFTER SEVERAL MINUTES IN THE BASEMENT WITH CHRIS,

WE REALIZE SOMETHING NOW HAS A VERY BAD EFFECT ON HER...

(Nick) CHRIS?

SO WE WRAP UP OUR INVESTIGATION.

SOMETIMES WITNESSING PEOPLE

WHO HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY SPIRITUAL ENERGY

IS NOT ENOUGH TO PROVE THAT SPIRITS WERE INVOLVED.

WE NOW TAKE ADDITIONAL READINGS

IN THE SPOT WHERE CHRIS JUST STOOD...

NOTHING'S HAPPENING.

THERE'S NOTHING.

WHICH ONLY SUPPORTS THE ABNORMAL READINGS

AROUND HER.

WE REGROUP WITH KELLEY TO REVIEW A SERIES

OF VERY UNSETTLING E.V.P.s WE CAPTURED

DURING OUR EARLIER INTERVIEW WITH HER.

I MEAN, USUALLY I'M HAPPY TO SHOW PEOPLE GOOD E.V.P.s.

THIS IS THE ONE TIME WHERE I'M NOT.

OBVIOUSLY, THERE'S SOMETHING RIGHT HERE,

AS YOU CAN SEE IT ON THE WAVEFORM.

(Nick) 0.7.

(distorted voice)

I HEAR, "I'M FOLLOWING HER."

0.7.

0.7.

THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE.

TO FURTHER PROVE THE LEGITIMACY OF THIS E.V.P.,

WE PLAY IT BACK DIRECTLY FROM THE RECORDER

THAT CAPTURED IT.

0.7.

(distorted voice)

ARE YOU OKAY?

(Kelley) YEAH.

IT'S RIGHT THERE.

WOW.

(Zak speaks indistinctly)

0.8.

THE MEL METER WAS PICKING UP PROBABLY THE SAME ENERGY

THAT WAS HAVING AN EMOTIONAL EFFECT ON YOU,

PROBABLY THE SAME ENERGY THAT SPOKE.

I DON'T THINK THAT'S ALL WE CAPTURED.

(switch clicks)

I WANT YOU TO TELL US.

(distorted voice)

"NO."

...TELL US.

...TELL US.

LIKE, IT DOES NOT WANT ANYTHING TO BE TOLD.

THIS IS A CREEPY ONE.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) WE WILL NOW GO BACK TO THE EXACT MOMENT

WHERE THIS E.V.P. WAS CAPTURED

TO SHOW HOW CONTROLLED THE SESSION WAS

AND THAT WE DIDN'T CONFUSE ANY CONTAMINATION

FOR THE SPIRIT VOICE.

THERE ARE SPIRITS HERE.

(distorted voice)

I'M HEARING "THEY'RE COMING TO GET YOU."

TO HAVE CLASS "A" E.V.P.s

WITH TONE SAYING, "I'M COMING TO GET YOU,"

"I'M FOLLOWING HER,"

AND WHEN I SAID, "I NEED YOU TO TELL US EVERYTHING,"

IT SAYS, "NO,"

THERE'S A VERY INTELLIGENT, DARK ENTITY HERE.

(chuckles) YEAH, THERE IS.

THERE'S OTHER GUESTS HERE THAT WERE HERE WAY BEFORE YOU.

YOU TELL US WHAT YOU WANT US TO DO AT THIS POINT.

I LIKE THE IDEA OF NOT AGITATING,

BUT IF YOU CAN GET MORE ANSWERS...

YEAH. INSTEAD OF US THREE DOWN HERE,

WE'VE BUILT THREE ROBOTS, AND WE'RE GOING

TO REMOTELY OPERATE THESE ROBOTS

FROM THE BEST WESTERN 2 MILES AWAY.

(chuckles)

IS THERE ANY DANGER FOR ANY OF THE PEOPLE

HERE IN THIS HOUSE?

(Dave) IS THERE ANY DANGER...

YEAH. "BAGANS."

IT DOES SAY "BAGANS."

IT SAYS, "BAGANS."

(thunder rumbles)

WE'RE IN SAUK CENTRE, MINNESOTA,

CONTINUING OUR INVESTIGATION OF THE PALMER HOUSE HOTEL.

(caws)

SO WE'RE GONNA GO

TO THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY RIGHT NOW.

OH, CAN I GET YOUR SIGNATURE, PLEASE?

(record needle scratches)

YEAH.

I'M A BIG FAN OF YOUR SHOW.

WE WATCH YOUR SHOW ALL THE TIME.

I WATCH IT EVERY DAY.

YEAH, I--

THERE YOU GO.

(pen clicks)

SO WE'RE GONNA GO TO THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY

AND TRY AND FIND ANYTHING AT ALL THAT THEY MAY HAVE PRESERVED,

SO THAT WE CAN BETTER, UH, INTERACT WITH THE SPIRITS THERE.

HERE'S STUFF ABOUT THE PALMER HOUSE.

"JUNE 28, 1900.

THE SAUK CENTRE HOUSE DESTROYED BY FIRE."

BUT THEY NEVER SAY HOW IT WAS STARTED.

GHOSTS? WHAT ABOUT GHOSTS?

"THE PALMER HOUSE GHOSTS."

THIS IS, UH, A-A TYPED, UH, TESTIMONY BY ONE OF THE OWNERS.

BACK IN THE--IN THE '50s,

A MAN HANGED HIMSELF IN THE PALMER HOUSE BAR

BY JUMPING OFF THE POOL TABLE...

(bones crunch)

AND THEY FOUND HIM DEAD IN THE MORNING.

AND THIS IS THE '70s, EARLY '80s.

ONE OF THE OWNERS, HE HEARS FOOTSTEPS COMING

DOWN THE HALL FROM ROOM 12 OR 13.

READ THAT LAST SENTENCE THERE.

(echoing voice) "I KNOW THERE IS SOMETHING UP THERE,

BUT I CAN'T EXPLAIN IT."

DUE TO THE INTENSE AMOUNT OF ACTIVITY

WE EXPERIENCED ON DAY ONE AT THE PALMER HOUSE,

WE DECIDE TO CALL FOR SOME BACKUP.

LOCAL INVESTIGATOR DAVE SCHRADER,

WHO IS NO STRANGER TO US OR THE PALMER HOUSE,

JOINS THE INVESTIGATION.

WELL, ONE OF THE FEW ACTUAL, FULL-ON EXPERIENCES

I'VE EVER HAD HAPPENED RIGHT DOWN HERE IN THE BASEMENT.

I WAS INVESTIGATING WITH TWO OTHER WOMEN,

AND WE WERE WALKING BACK BY THE STAIRWAYS,

WHERE IT'S BELIEVED THAT AN ACTUAL BODY HAS BEEN BURIED

UNDERNEATH THE STAIRS,

AND AS THE THREE OF US WERE STARING AT THE STAIRCASE,

THIS FACE CAME UP OUT OF THE DARKNESS,

AND IT JUST CAME RIGHT AT US.

THAT WAS TRULY ONE OF THE MOST DISTURBING THINGS

I'VE EVER SEEN.

AARON AND I HEAD BACK INTO THE BASEMENT,

CURIOUS IF ANY MORE BONES REMAIN IN THE HOLE

WHERE KELLEY ONCE DUG,

BUT IT'S CLEAR THE ENERGY AT THE PALMER HOUSE

CANNOT BE CONTAINED TO THE BASEMENT ALONE,

SO DAVE AND NICK SET UP FOR A LIVE SHACK HACK SESSION

IN ONE OF THE PALMER HOUSE'S MOST ACTIVE ROOMS.

I COME HERE WITH THE OWNER, AND SHE SAID,

"THIS IS LUCY'S ROOM, DAVE. SHE'S NOT FOND OF MEN."

NOW THAT CHAIR IS KNOWN TO BE LUCY'S CHAIR.

ALL RIGHT, LUCY. I'M STANDING HERE WITH NICK.

I KNOW YOU'RE NOT FOND OF MEN,

AND YOU'RE CERTAINLY NOT FOND OF THEM BEING HERE IN YOUR ROOM.

CAN YOU COME FORWARD AND JUST SAY HELLO OR TALK TO US?

LET US KNOW, WHY ARE YOU SO ANGRY?

(muffled voice) OHH.

(static crackling)

LUCY, ARE YOU HERE WITH US?

(feedback whines)

IS THERE A LADY HERE THAT WANTS TO TALK TO US?

IS THERE ANY DANGER FOR ANY OF THE PEOPLE

HERE IN THIS HOUSE?

(static continues crackling, feedback whines)

I THOUGHT THAT SAID, "ZAK."

(distorted voice)

RIGHT THERE, MAN. THAT'S A WHISPER.

YEAH.

IT SAID, "ZAK."

"ZAK."

HOLY CRAP.

LET'S GO SHOW HIM.

(Nick) YOU SURE YOU WANT TO BE DOING THIS?

WHY?

BECAUSE WE JUST CAPTURED SOMETHING REALLY CREEPY.

JUST LISTEN.

(Dave) IS THERE ANY DANGER FOR ANY OF THE PEOPLE

HERE IN THIS HOUSE?

(distorted voice)

RIGHT THERE.

BUT I HEAR "BAGANS" RIGHT AFTER IT.

(distorted voice)

YEAH. "BAGANS."

IT DOES SAY "BAGANS."

IT SAYS, "BAGANS."

HOLY (bleep).

I DIDN'T HEAR THAT.

(Zak) WE REVIEW THE E.V.P. AGAIN,

ONLY TO FIND THERE'S MORE TO THIS WARNING.

AND THEN THERE'S A LAUGH RIGHT AFTERWARDS.

YEAH.

YET AGAIN, ANOTHER DISTURBING PARALLEL

TO BOBBY MACKEY'S.

WE JUST GOT YOUR VOICE THAT CAME THROUGH

ON THE RADIO UPSTAIRS.

(Zak) DURING OUR EVENT,

DAVE AND NICK BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION

A SPIRIT VOICE CAPTURED ON HIS SHACK HACK,

BUT THE SPIRIT WAS MIMICKING MY VOICE.

BY NOW, THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN

BOBBY MACKEY'S MUSIC WORLD AND THE PALMER HOUSE

HAVE REACHED AN UNPARALLELED CLIMAX.

BOBBY MACKEY'S HAD CARL THE CARETAKER.

HERE WE HAVE KELLEY, WHO SERVES THE SAME ROLE.

BOBBY MACKEY'S WELL WAS A PORTAL TO HELL.

IN THE BASEMENT, THE HOLE KELLEY DUG

APPEARS TO HAVE UNLEASHED HIGH LEVELS OF ACTIVITY

THROUGHOUT THE PALMER HOUSE,

WHICH HAS IMPACTED EVERYONE FROM HERSELF TO HER GUESTS.

ONE OF WHOM, CHRIS, CLAIMS TO HAVE SUFFERED A POSSESSION.

(slurring) YOU NEED TO TALK TO ME.

GET OUT.

(Zak) WE HAVE AMASSED A COMPELLING COLLECTION

OF EVIDENCE...

AND WE HAVEN'T EVEN BEGUN OUR LOCKDOWN.

(thunder rumbles)

I'M CONCERNED RIGHT NOW

BECAUSE THIS IS SO MUCH LIKE BOBBY MACKEY'S.

IT'S LIKE IT SEEKS US OUT, MAN.

RIGHT.

YEAH.

NOW WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN WITH US?

ALL IT TAKES IS ONE OF US TO BE PUSHED OVER THE EDGE.

THEN THERE'S A BLOODBATH AMONGST US.

YEAH, THEN IT'S GONNA BE REALLY BAD.

(Zak) LOCK US IN HERE, KELLEY.

THIS WHOLE BUILDING IS INFESTED.

I'M A LITTLE NERVOUS ALL OF A SUDDEN IN HERE.

WHOA!

ONE MORE TIME?

DID THAT SAY--

DID YOU HEAR THAT?

IT DID!

THAT SAID MY NAME.

♪♪

♪♪

IT IS TIME NOW, AS IT IS GETTING DARK,

FOR US TO INVESTIGATE A LOCATION

THAT HAS VERY MUCH, IN A VERY EERIE, CREEPY WAY,

RESEMBLED A LOCATION THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST DARKEST HAUNTS

THAT WE'VE EVER INVESTIGATED.

I'M NOT CLAIMING THAT THIS PLACE IS INFESTED BY DEMONS

OR IT'S ON THE SAME SCALE AS BOBBY MACKEY'S MUSIC WORLD,

BUT THERE WERE A LOT OF WEIRD SIMILARITIES.

OKAY. WE'RE GONNA GET LOCKED DOWN IN HERE,

BUT THERE'S ONE OTHER PERSON

THAT WE'RE GONNA GET LOCKED IN HERE WITH US--

BILLY TOLLEY, OUR AUDIOVISUAL TECH,

BILLY HAS SET UP A VIDEO SURVEILLANCE AREA,

A NERVE CENTER, IF YOU WILL, UP ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT'S HERE.

IT'S OUR TURN TO FIND OUT WHAT'S HERE.

ABSOLUTELY.

ALL RIGHT. LOCK US IN HERE, KELLEY.

WE HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED INVESTIGATING YET,

AND JUST AS WE ARRIVED HERE TODAY,

A RAINBOW WAS GOING INTO THE BUILDING... (chuckles)

BUT I DON'T THINK WE'RE HUNTING LEPRECHAUNS

ON THIS LOCKDOWN.

IT COULD BE VERY MUCH DARKER.

ALL RIGHT. WE'RE GETTING READY TO BEGIN OUR LOCKDOWN RIGHT NOW.

WHILE WE'RE INVESTIGATING, BILLY, WATCH THESE CAMERAS.

WE'VE GOT A CAMERA IN ROOM 17 ON THE THIRD FLOOR,

A VERY, VERY ACTIVE ROOM, LUCY'S ROOM.

WE'VE GOT A CAMERA HERE ON THE SECOND FLOOR,

AND WE'VE ALSO GOT TWO CAMERAS DOWN IN THE BASEMENT.

EARLIER THIS IS WHERE KELLEY HAD

THAT VERY, VERY EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE

TRIGGERED BY AN UNKNOWN PRESENCE OF ACTIVITY

THAT SPOKE TO US IN CLASS "A" VOICES.

(Nick) 0.7.

(Zak) TELL US.

WE'VE GOT REM-PODS IN EVERY SINGLE CAMERA.

THAT MEANS IF THERE'S A PRESENCE

OF ENERGY, ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY,

UH, THE MANIFESTATION OF A SPIRIT,

THESE REM-PODS WILL BEGIN LIGHTING UP

AND THEY WILL BEGIN ALARMING.

AT THAT POINT, LET US KNOW. THIS IS OUR BAIT.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT. YOU GUYS READY?

(Nick) YEP.

THANKS, BILL.

BE SAFE, GUYS.

THIS AREA IS NOW CLOSED.

(door closes)

THIS WHOLE BUILDING IS INFESTED WITH PARANORMAL EVENTS,

AND EARLIER WE LEARNED A LOT

ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED UP HERE ON THE THIRD FLOOR

AND ALSO ROOM 17, WHERE WE'RE HEADED RIGHT NOW.

NOW THAT CHAIR IS KNOWN TO BE LUCY'S CHAIR.

EVERY TIME I'VE BEEN HERE, I'VE HAD SOME KIND OF ACTIVITY

OF LUCY LETTING ME KNOW THAT SHE'S HERE WITH ME.

AND HERE IT IS.

ROOM... 17.

(Nick) 17.

WHAT HAPPENS IN HERE, NICK?

WHEN I WAS INTERVIEWING DAVE SCHRADER

AND WE WERE USING A SHACK HACK,

WHEN WE SAID, "TONIGHT WHEN WE GET LOCKED DOWN,

IS ANY OF US GONNA BE IN DANGER?"

WE CAPTURED YOUR NAME COMING THROUGH HERE.

IS THERE ANY DANGER FOR ANY OF THE PEOPLE

HERE IN THIS HOUSE?

(Zak) IT'S NOT LIKE WE HAVEN'T FACED DANGER BEFORE,

SO WE BEGIN CONDUCTING AN E.V.P. SESSION

USING A DIODE MICROPHONE, WHICH WAS USED

BY E.V.P. RESEARCH PIONEER DR. KONSTANTIN RAUDIVE.

WE TALKED TO OUR FRIEND DAVE SCHRADER EARLIER.

HE SAID THAT THIS DOOR SLAMMED SHUT.

LUCY, ARE YOU HERE?

FOR APPROXIMATELY 25 MINUTES,

WE TAKE A VERY PASSIVE APPROACH TO OUR INVESTIGATION

AND HAVE NO FEELINGS OF SPIRITUAL ENERGY AROUND US,

NOR DO WE RECEIVE ANY E.V.P.s OR ACTIVITY FROM OUR REM-POD,

BUT THEN NICK REMINDS ME ABOUT SOMETHING NEGATIVE,

SO WE DECIDE TO SWITCH GEARS.

SUPPOSEDLY, WHATEVER FEMALE IS IN HERE HATES GUYS.

EVERY TIME GUYS COME IN HERE AND CAUSE RUCKUS,

THE SPIRIT GETS REALLY PISSED OFF.

I KNOW YOU'RE NOT FOND OF MEN,

AND YOU'RE CERTAINLY NOT FOND OF THEM BEING HERE

IN YOUR ROOM.

LET US KNOW, WHY ARE YOU SO ANGRY?

IS THERE SOMEBODY IN THIS ROOM?

LUCY, ARE YOU IN THIS ROOM?

AND YOU DON'T LIKE GUYS, HUH?

(beeping)

THAT'S GOING-- THAT'S GOING OFF...

DO YOU NOT LIKE, UH--

RIGHT BEHIND YOU.

DO YOU NOT LIKE US MESSING THE BED UP?

HERE. HOLD ON. HOLD ON.

DO YOU NOT LIKE US DOING THIS?

AS SOON AS I BEGIN TO USE A LITTLE PROVOCATION,

OUR REM-POD DETECTS A CHANGE

IN THE ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY FIELD,

AND THE ENVIRONMENT TAKES ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FEELING.

(beeping continues)

IT'S GOING OFF.

IS THAT--YOU DON'T LIKE THAT?

THIS STUFF HERE?

DUDE, THAT THING IS GOING NUTS.

GET THAT. GET THAT.

I'M TRYING.

IS THAT WHAT YOU DON'T LIKE...

IS ALL OF THIS HERE?

(thuds)

(beeping continues)

CAN YOU DO SOMETHING?

LOOK AT THAT.

I KNOW.

I HAVE NOT EVER SEEN THAT DO THAT.

THAT'S WEIRD, MAN. I'M A LITTLE NERVOUS...

OH, LOOK.

ALL OF A SUDDEN IN HERE, MAN. (chuckles)

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

YEAH, YEAH.

IT JUST FEELS DIFFERENT ALL OF A SUDDEN,

ESPECIALLY AFTER YOU DID THAT TO THE BED.

LOOK. LOOK.

WHAT IF WE TAKE THAT CHAIR?

WHOA. WHOA. WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.

WHAT IF WE ARRANGE THE ROOM EVEN MORE, HUH?

(thuds)

DO YOU LIKE THIS, HUH?

I'M NOT TRYING TO PISS OFF THE SPIRIT.

I'M JUST TRYING TO GATHER ACTIVITY.

THAT'S PROBABLY WHY SHE DOESN'T LIKE GUYS.

'CAUSE THEY COME IN HERE AND MESS UP HER ROOM. (chuckles)

(laughs)

I'M NOT DESTROYING ANYTHING.

I'M GONNA PUT IT BACK.

I SAY LEAVE IT, MAN.

LEAVE IT THIS WAY AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE GONNA RUN THE SB7 SPIRIT BOX.

THIS SCANS THROUGH AUDIO FREQUENCIES VERY FAST.

WE'RE GONNA SWEEP IN REVERSE,

AND WE'RE GONNA TRY AND PICK UP...

(static hissing)

ANYTHING OR ANYBODY IN HERE.

IS THERE SOMEBODY IN THIS ROOM

THAT'S MAKING THIS DEVICE GO OFF?

CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IS ON THE MATTRESS HERE?

(static continues hissing)

(feedback whines, static pops)

WHOA. WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.

WHOA. WHOA.

WHAT WAS THAT, MAN?

HOLY (bleep). DID YOU HEAR THAT?

WHAT WAS THAT?

YEAH, SOMEONE JUST TOUCHED YOU ON YOUR BACK.

I KNOW.

OH, MY--THAT WAS, LIKE, OHH.

THERE WAS, UH, THERE WAS A WEIRD NOISE, TOO, WHEN--

YEAH, LIKE, THERE WAS A POP.

YEAH, I KNOW.

YES. YES.

LIKE, I--

LIKE, I FELT LIKE I GOT TASED.

LIKE A POP.

I FEEL SOMETHING SHOCK ME,

LIKE WHEN SOMEONE RUBS THEIR FEET ON THE CARPET

AND THEN TOUCHES YOU ON THE BACK OF THE NECK,

BUT I DID NOT TOUCH NICK OR AARON OR ANYTHING ELSE.

IT WAS SOME KIND OF REALLY POWERFUL STATIC SHOCK

THAT ALL THREE OF US COULD ALSO HEAR

COME THROUGH THE SPIRIT BOX SPEAKER.

(static hissing)

CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IS ON THE MATTRESS HERE?

WHOA. WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.

WHOA. WHOA.

WHAT WAS THAT, MAN?

HOLY (bleep). DID YOU HEAR THAT?

WHAT WAS THAT?

(Zak) DID I JUST FEEL A JOLT OF THE SAME TYPE OF ENERGY

THAT IS ALSO MAKING THE REM-POD GO BERSERK?

WHAT WE HAVE TO TRY AND FIGURE OUT NOW

IS WHETHER THIS IS SOME KIND OF INTENSIFIED SPIRITUAL ENERGY

OR SOMETHING ELSE THAT IS EXPLAINABLE.

MAN, I FELT THAT GO OFF ON ME.

I CAN--I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, MAN.

(Nick and Zak) YEAH.

I KINDA FEEL A LITTLE...

(Nick) LIKE, IT'S RIGHT HERE.

AGGRESSIVE RIGHT NOW.

THERE'S SOMETHING RIGHT HERE. IT COMES AND GOES, RIGHT?

YEAH.

IT COMES AND GOES. IT'S, LIKE, THIS AGGRESSIVE FEELING.

THEN IT GOES AWAY. AGGRESSIVE FEELING. GOES AWAY.

YEAH. YEP.

AS WE TURN THE SB7 SPIRIT BOX BACK ON

AND BEGIN SWEEPING, WE IMMEDIATELY RECEIVE THIS.

I FELT THAT ENERGY.

WHOA!

WHOA!

ONE MORE TIME?

DID THAT SAY "AARON"?

YEAH.

IT DID!

THAT SAID MY NAME.

IT SAID, "AARON."

IT DID!

CLASS "A."

I FELT THAT ENERGY.

(Nick) WHOA!

WHOA!

ONE MORE TIME?

DID THAT SAY "AARON"?

(Zak) LET'S BACK UP FOR A SECOND

AND ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT VOICES WE HAVE CAPTURED

IN THIS ROOM OVER THE LAST 24 HOURS.

EARLIER TODAY, DAVE AND NICK ASKED, "WHO IS IN DANGER?"

AND NOW AARON'S NAME COMES THROUGH...

WHOA!

AND IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS,

THINGS WILL GET EVEN MORE EXTREME.

GUYS, COME IN. I KEEP SEEING SOMETHING ON THE SCREEN.

WHOA!

OH, MY GOD!

IT GOES, "A SPIRIT"!

WHO'S HERE WITH US?

WHOA, WHOA.

♪♪

♪♪

WE CONTINUE OUR INVESTIGATION INSIDE

ONE OF THE PALMER HOUSE'S MOST ACTIVE ROOMS--

LUCY'S ROOM, WHERE ONLY MOMENTS AGO,

AARON'S NAME CAME THROUGH OUR SB7 SPIRIT BOX.

I HAVE THE CHILLS, MAN.

DUDE, YOU'RE--

WHO JUST SAID AARON'S NAME?

(static hissing)

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO TELL AARON?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO TELL ME?

(static continues hissing)

WHAT WAS THAT? WAS THAT JUST YOU?

WHAT? NO.

THAT GROWL--GROWLY NOISE?

NO.

WHOA!

OH, MY GOD!

IT GOES, "SPIRIT"!

IT GOES, "SPIRIT. SPIRIT."

NICK HEARS A GROWL FROM THIS PART OF THE ROOM

THAT DOES NOT COME THROUGH THE SPIRIT BOX,

BUT RIGHT AS HE REACTS,

A VOICE COMES THROUGH THE DEVICE,

POSSIBLY TELLING US WHO MADE THE GROWL.

THAT GROWL--GROWLY NOISE?

NO.

WHOA!

OH, MY GOD!

IT GOES, "SPIRIT"!

AND THAT WAS A BAD VOICE, MAN. SAY AARON'S NAME AGAIN.

THAT THING'S GOING CRAZY OVER THERE, MAN.

WOW. IT IS.

DUDE, IT'S, LIKE, HYPED UP RIGHT NOW.

YEAH. YEAH.

OHH. I FEEL THIS ITCH.

ON MY EAR AND MY FACE.

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT, DUDE?

YEAH. YEAH.

WHO'S HERE WITH US?

(gasps)

IT JUST SAID, "GOODWIN"?

YES.

WOW, DUDE.

DUDE, THAT SAID, "GOODWIN"!

I HEARD "GOODWIN."

(chuckles) I KNOW, DUDE.

I HEARD "GOODWIN," BRO.

I--

WHAT THE (bleep)?!

THAT WAS A SCARY VOICE, BRO.

I HEARD IT. IT WAS A DEEP VOICE, MAN.

WHO'S HERE WITH US?

(gasps)

(gasps)

(gasps)

(gasps)

(gasps)

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO TELL AARON?

(static continues hissing)

OH. WHOA, WHOA.

WHAT? WHAT?

WHAT THE (bleep)?

MAN, TRUST ME, I'M HEARING FOOTSTEPS DOWN HERE, LIKE THIS.

(stomps)

DID YOU NOT HEAR THAT?

NO.

OKAY. LET'S GO BACK IN.

I'M JUST SAYING, DUDE, I JUST HEARD FOOTSTEPS

RUNNING DOWN THE HALL.

GO BACK IN. GO BACK IN.

ARE YOU STILL HERE WITH US?

(static continues hissing)

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO TO AARON?

TELL ME.

WHERE DO YOU WANT US TO GO?

(static stops)

NOW WHAT'S REALLY INTERESTING HERE IS THAT AS SOON AS AARON--

YOU HEARD-- DID YOU FEEL HIM...

I HEARD--

I HEARD F--

OR DID YOU JUST HEAR HIM?

WELL, I STARTED TO FEEL A LITTLE STATIC ELECTRICITY...

COULD YOU FEEL HIM?

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I COULD--

YEAH, I COULD FEEL THE FOOTSTEPS.

OKAY.

WHOA, WHOA.

(bleep) WHAT?

WHAT THE (bleep)?

MAN, TRUST ME, I'M HEARING FOOTSTEPS DOWN HERE, LIKE THIS.

(stomps)

DID YOU HEAR IT GOING AWAY OR COMING TOWARDS US?

AWAY.

DOWN THAT HALLWAY.

OKAY.

AS SOON AS YOU HEARD THOSE GOING AWAY,

THAT'S WHEN ALL THE VOICES ON THE SPIRIT BOX STOPPED.

RIGHT.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO TO AARON?

(static hissing)

TELL ME.

WHATEVER WAS HERE MAY HAVE WENT THAT WAY,

BECAUSE WE WENT TO A LIBRARY, A HISTORICAL SOCIETY EARLIER,

AND THROUGH THE RECORDS THAT WE WERE ABLE TO FIND,

THERE IS TESTIMONY THAT A GUY HEARD FOOTSTEPS

ON THE 2nd AND 3rd FLOORS, RUNNING DOWN THESE HALLWAYS,

THE SAME THING THAT YOU JUST HEARD.

HE HEARS FOOTSTEPS COMING DOWN THE HALL FROM ROOM 12 OR 13,

AND NOTICE ONE OTHER THING--

THAT STOPPED.

(Zak) AS WE ARE HEADING BACK TOWARDS BASE

TO PLAN OUR NEXT AREA OF INVESTIGATION,

BILLY RADIOS US ON THE WALKIE-TALKIE,

BECAUSE HE SEES SOMETHING STRANGE

BEING CAPTURED ON OUR BASEMENT "X" CAMERA.

WHAT IS THAT?

(beeps)

GUYS, COME IN. GUYS?

I keep seeing something on the screen.

WHAT FIRST DRAWS BILLY TO THIS CAMERA IS THE REM-POD,

WHICH STARTS GOING OFF UNCONTROLLABLY,

AND A VISUAL ANOMALY THAT APPEARS TO MANIFEST

OUT OF THIS WALL ON THE LEFT,

THEN TRAVELS DOWN THE HALLWAY,

WHERE SOMETHING TRULY AWESOME HAPPENS.

RIGHT AS THE ANOMALY DISAPPEARS,

THIS CORD HANGING FROM THE CEILING

BEGINS TO SWING ALL BY ITSELF,

AND WATCH VERY CLOSELY AS THIS UNEXPLAINED ANOMALY

THEN PASSES RIGHT THROUGH THE SWINGING WIRE.

AND REMEMBER, THE ENTIRE TIME THIS EVENT OCCURS,

OUR REM-POD IS INDICATING THE PRESENCE

OF SOME TYPE OF CHARGED ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY.

IS THIS THE SAME SPIRIT THAT WE DOCUMENTED

ON THE THIRD FLOOR, WHICH RAN DOWN THE STAIRS?

WE IMMEDIATELY HEAD TO THAT AREA

TO TRY AND FIND OUT.

SEE THE LIGHT? LOOK!

(Nick) ARE YOU HAVING AN EFFECT ON HIM?

OH, MY GOD.

(Zak, muffled voice) I AM NOT FEELING WELL.

IS SOMEBODY DOING THIS TO US?

OH, MY GOD.

♪♪

AS WE CONTINUE OUR LOCKDOWN INSIDE THE PALMER HOUSE HOTEL,

WE MOVE INTO THE BASEMENT,

WHERE A VISUAL ANOMALY WITH SIMULTANEOUS REM-POD ACTIVITY

HAS CAUGHT OUR ATTENTION.

WE GO DOWN TO THE AREA WHERE THIS UNEXPLAINED ACTIVITY

WAS CAPTURED ON OUR "X" CAMERA AND DO A FULL THERMAL SWEEP,

BUT WE CAPTURE NOTHING AND REALLY FEEL NOTHING.

ARE YOUR BONES BURIED BACK HERE?

IT'S QUIET DOWN HERE.

YEAH, I KNOW.

(muffled voice) I DON'T FEEL NOTHIN' LIKE I DID UPSTAIRS.

I DON'T EITHER.

IT ISN'T UNTIL WE SIT DOWN INSIDE THIS ROOM,

WHERE THE SNOWMAN DOLL IS LOCATED,

WHICH IS FREQUENTLY SEEN MOVING ON ITS OWN,

THAT SOMETHING HITS ME, MAKING ME EXTREMELY LETHARGIC

AND UNABLE TO FOCUS OR EVEN MOVE,

AND IT IS AT THIS TIME THAT WE ALL BECOME CONCERNED

FOR THE NOTORIOUS DARK ENERGY

THAT HAS HAD AN EFFECT ON THE LIVING HERE FOR DECADES.

(Nick) WHAT'S GOING ON, DUDE?

IS THERE SOMEONE HERE THAT WANTS TO TALK TO US?

ARE YOU HAVING AN EFFECT ON HIM?

(sighs)

(Aaron) WHAT IS THAT?

IT--IT STARTED RIGHT HERE RATTLING.

NOW IT'S GOING, LIKE, THROUGH THE HALL.

I DON'T KNOW.

(Nick) I JUST FELT A COLD BREEZE

GO RIGHT THROUGH ME.

WAIT. SHH.

WHAT IS THAT NOISE?

AND REMEMBER, WE ARE NOT FULLY AWARE

OF WHAT WE JUST CAPTURED ON THIS "X" CAMERA.

IT'S REALLY STARTING TO GET CREEPY NOW.

YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL. LIKE, ONE MINUTE,

THE ATMOSPHERE IS JUST CALM AND COLLECTED,

AND THEN THE NEXT MINUTE--

SHH!

(whispers) WHAT?

DO YOU WANT TO STAY IN HERE FOR JUST A COUPLE OF SECONDS?

(scrape)

OH, MY GOD.

OH, MY GOD, DUDE.

(clink)

WHAT?

JUST THEN, AARON HEARS AN UNEXPLAINED DRAGGING SOUND

THAT'S FOLLOWED BY SOME UNEXPLAINED GLASSES

CLINKING TOGETHER.

(Nick) DO YOU WANT TO STAY IN HERE

FOR JUST A COUPLE OF SECONDS?

OH, MY GOD.

OH, MY GOD, DUDE.

WHAT?

OH, MY GOD.

OH, MY GOD, DUDE.

WHAT?

OH, MY GOD.

OH, MY GOD, DUDE.

WHAT?

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

YEAH.

I THOUGHT I HEARD SOMETHING JUST NOW.

I KEEP HEARING THAT FROM THE OTHER ROOM.

(muffled voice) YOU KNOW WHAT I FEEL LIKE?

IS THERE GAS DOWN HERE?

RIGHT NOW I'M TRYING TO JUST THINK

OF ALL THE POSSIBILITIES, NOT JUST PARANORMAL,

FOR WHY I'M FEELING THIS WAY, BUT IF IT WERE A GAS LEAK,

THEN NICK AND AARON WOULD FEEL IT, TOO.

PLUS, I'M WEARING A RESPIRATOR MASK,

SO I RULE OUT THAT POSSIBILITY.

(sighs) I DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS IS, YOU GUYS.

AM I NOT GETTING ENOUGH OXYGEN THROUGH THIS?

UM--

I FEEL OFF-BALANCE,

AND I CAN'T WALK A STRAIGHT LINE.

WHAT THE HELL?

DID YOU SEE THAT?

CAMERA TWO JUST FLICKERED,

AND THAT'S THE LEVEL THAT I'M ON,

SO THAT'S KINDA WEIRD,

'CAUSE I JUST HEARD FOOTSTEPS IN THIS HALLWAY,

AND THAT'S WHERE THEY'RE--THAT'S AT.

OKAY. I AM NOT FEELING WELL.

IS SOMEBODY DOING THIS TO US?

(static hissing)

SEE IT? YOU SEE THE LIGHT?

NO.

LOOK!

IT'S GETTING BRIGHTER, AND IT'LL GO AWAY.

WHERE?

IN THE BACKGROUND. WATCH.

AS WE WALK TOWARDS THE HALL WHERE THE "X" CAMERA

JUST CAPTURED THIS STRANGE EVENT

WITH AN ANOMALY AND THE WIRE SWINGING,

AARON SEES SOME TYPE OF GLOWING ANOMALY OR MIST

BEHIND THE "X" CAMERA.

GO IN THAT ROOM.

STILL ROLLING. STILL ROLLING. HANG ON.

GO IN THERE. GO, GO, GO, GO.

(speaks indistinctly)

I AM (bleep) SWAYING RIGHT NOW.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN "SWAYING"?

LIKE, I FEEL LIKE I'M ON A ROCKING SHIP.

I KNOW! THAT'S WHAT I WAS FEELING.

ROLLING, ROLLING, ROLLING, ROLLING.

WE'RE GONNA DO A LIVE BURST SESSION...

(beeps)

SO WE'RE GONNA RECORD

AND THEN REVIEW ON THE SPOT.

IS SOMEBODY IN HERE WITH US?

THAT'S AARON WALKING.

(Aaron sighs)

WHENEVER I DO AN E.V.P. BURST SESSION,

WHICH IS A RAPID RECORDING SESSION

WITH IMMEDIATE PLAYBACK,

YOU'LL HEAR ME SAY THINGS LIKE "AARON WALKING"

OR "NICK MOVING," WHICH IS ME TAGGING THE AUDIO

SO THAT WE DON'T CONFUSE THESE SHUFFLING NOISES

FOR SPIRIT VOICES.

IF THERE'S SOMEBODY HERE,

WE JUST WANT TO TALK TO YOU, THAT'S ALL.

WE DON'T WANT NO TROUBLE.

CAN YOU TELL US ANYTHING ABOUT THE FIRE OF 1900?

(flames crackling)

DID ANYBODY DIE IN THE FIRE OF 1900?

(clank)

(gasps)

OHH.

WHY DO YOU NOT WANT PEOPLE DOWN IN THIS BASEMENT?

OH, MY GOD.

ARE YOU GETTING THIS?

OUCH! OW!

AND YOU JUST GOT SCRATCHED!

♪♪

♪♪

THE BASEMENT OF THE PALMER HOUSE

IS KNOWN FOR ITS DARK ENERGY,

AND AS AARON AND I BEGIN FEELING ILL,

WE CONDUCT AN E.V.P. BURST SESSION

TO SEE IF ANY SPIRITS ARE THE REASON.

(muffled voice) DID ANYBODY DIE IN THE FIRE OF 1900?

(clank)

(gasps)

OHH.

JEEZ. (bleep). (exhales deeply)

(Nick chuckles) BOILER TURNING ON.

CAN TELL OUR SENSES ARE HEIGHTENED. (bleep).

(laughs)

(laughs) OH, MY GOD, BRO.

(gasps)

OHH.

(gasps)

OHH.

(gasps)

OHH.

JEEZ. (bleep).

JEEZ. (bleep), MAN.

(Nick chuckles)

(exhales deeply)

THAT WAS AWESOME.

WE LAUGH THAT OFF, BUT WE'RE ABOUT TO BE STUNNED

BY A VOICE WE JUST CAPTURED.

(Zak) IF THERE'S SOMEBODY HERE,

WE JUST WANT TO TALK TO YOU, THAT'S ALL.

WE DON'T WANT NO TROUBLE.

(distorted voice)

(distorted voice)

WHAT?

SERIOUSLY, BRO?

(distorted voice)

WHAT WE CAPTURE HERE IS A CLASS "A" E.V.P.,

WHICH MEANS FULL VOCAL TONE AND CLARITY,

AND AS WE CAPTURED THIS JUST SECONDS AGO,

RIGHT AFTER ASKING A QUESTION

AND WAITING IN COMPLETE SILENCE,

THAT MAKES THIS EVEN MORE IMPACTFUL IN THE MOMENT.

WE DON'T WANT NO TROUBLE.

(distorted voice)

(distorted voice)

HOLD ON. STOP.

LISTEN TO THIS.

LISTEN. LISTEN.

LISTEN TO THIS!

HOLD ON.

THERE'S SOMEONE WALKING UP HERE.

DO YOU HEAR THAT? THERE WAS SOMEONE WALKING UP,

AND I'M JUST GETTING CHILL BUMP--GOOSE BUMPS.

OUCH! OUCH. OW. OW.

GETTING, LIKE, THESE PINCHES ALL OVER YOU?

(speaks indistinctly)

YES.

YEAH, I KEPT GETTING THAT, TOO.

I JUST GOT A PINCH RIGHT HERE. GET ME--

GET ME A LIGHT REAL QUICK.

AS WE'RE REVIEWING THIS E.V.P.,

I FEEL A PINCH ON MY SIDE,

AND WHEN I LIFT MY SHIRT, BOTH NICK AND AARON SEE

A RED MARK RIGHT WHERE I FELT THIS.

IT'S GETTING REDDER AND SW--

(Aaron) YEAH.

IT'S SWELLING UP.

SHUT THE (bleep) UP.

IT'S ONE--IT'S ONE SCRATCH.

ARE YOU SERIOUS?

(bleep) IS HAPPENING DOWN THERE?

GUYS, I'M NOT FEELING RIGHT.

I'M NOT EITHER.

(distorted voice)

THAT'S A (bleep) CLASS "A" E.V.P.

"MAKE SURE THEY GO." "MAKE SURE THEY GO."

YEAH. "MAKE SURE THEY--"

PLAY--PLAY IT AGAIN.

PLAY IT AGAIN.

(both) "MAKE SURE THEY GO."

I JUST GOT THE CHILLS. OHH.

LISTEN.

LIKE, "GET OUT OF HERE."

LISTEN.

YES.

ARE YOU GETTING THIS?

AND THEN YOU GOT SCRATCHED! LIKE, THIS MAKES SENSE,

SO GET THE (bleep) OUT OF HERE RIGHT NOW.

ALL RIGHT. AARON'S STAYING DOWN HERE.

YOU GOT A RECORDER?

IT'S ALREADY ROLLING, MAN.

ALL RIGHT. GO. ALL RIGHT, ZAK, LET'S GO.

(lowered voice) SERIOUSLY, IF ANYTHING HAPPENS...

YOU'LL BE SEEING IT, SO HURRY THE (bleep) DOWN HERE.

ALL RIGHT. THEY'RE LEAVING.

IT'S MANO A MANO.

IT IS SO CREEPY DOWN THERE IN THE BASEMENT,

AND HEARING THE VOICES...

(exhales deeply)

IT IS CHILLING.

WHY DO YOU NOT WANT PEOPLE DOWN IN THIS BASEMENT?

ARE YOU THAT ANGRY

BECAUSE YOU WERE BURNED IN A FIRE OR KILLED DOWN HERE

THAT YOU'RE GONNA TAKE IT OUT ON OTHER PEOPLE?

THAT'S WHERE ZAK WAS DIGGING EARLIER.

(gasps) OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD.

(clatter)

WHAT? WHAT WAS THAT?

WHAT THE (bleep) WAS THAT?

MY WHOLE BODY'S CHILLIN' RIGHT NOW.

I FELT THIS INTENSE ENERGY,

AND SOMETHING'S WALKING, MOVING AROUND OVER HERE.

(Zak) WHAT WAS THAT NOISE? WHAT WAS JUST THROWN?

(Nick) I DON'T KNOW.

(speaks indistinctly)

PROBABLY JUST SOME LOUD, LIKE, BANG NOISE.

I HEARD WOOD.

(Billy and Nick) YEAH.

LIKE A WOODEN STICK WAS THROWN.

YEAH.

I WANT NICK AND I TO TRY AND FIND OUT

IF WE COULD FIND OUT WHAT FELL.

WE NEED--

SO WHAT WAS THROWN?

SO WE'RE GONNA GO SEE IF WE SEE ANYTHING,

'CAUSE AARON'S IN PITCH DARKNESS.

(Zak, muffled voice) LOOK FOR...

(Nick) AARON, WE'RE COMING DOWN.

WHAT HAPPENED?

LOOK. LOOK.

WHAT?

LOOK ON THE GROUND.

RIGHT WHEN I WALKED DOWN--

THAT'S THE (bleep) STICK!

THAT'S (bleep)!

DUDE, I HEARD THAT!

(speaks indistinctly)

WE WERE ALL ON CAMERA, WATCHING YOU,

AND WE HEARD THIS LOUD BOOM! BOOM-BOOM-BOOM-BOOM!

(clatter)

YEAH.

WHAT WAS THAT?

AND RIGHT WHEN WE WALKED DOWN THE STAIRS...

BOOM! THIS IS WHAT WE--

THAT IS (bleep) IT.

(Aaron gasps) OH, MY GOD.

OH, MY GOD.

WHAT THE (bleep) WAS THAT?

WHAT WAS THAT?

WE WALKED DOWN THE STAIRS... (speaks indistinctly)

BROOM! THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT DID IT.

OH, MY GOD! I WALKED INTO THIS--

LOOK LIKE AT THAT, DUDE!

THAT'S EXACTLY--

ZAK, I WALKED IN THIS AREA AND NEVER NOTICED IT.

AND I HEARD IT AND I WALKED BACK,

AND THIS (bleep) THING ON CAMERA.

(bleep)!

AND IT IS RIGHT NEXT TO THIS ROOM.

LOOK. LOOK.

(bleep). AWESOME, BRO.

LOOK. LOOK WHERE WE ARE. THIS IS WHERE KELLEY--

THIS IS--ALL THE E.V.P.s WE CAPTURED EARLIER.

A CREATURE-LOOKING THING?

YES.

OKAY.

AND RED EYES.

LISTEN. WHEN ZAK AND MYSELF LEFT

AND WE WALKED OUT THIS WAY,

THAT WAS NOT LIKE THAT.

(Zak) WE FURTHER TRY TO DEBUNK THIS BY MAKING SURE

THAT THE BROOM WAS NOT LEANING RIGHT TOWARDS THE EDGE

AND JUST HAPPENED TO FALL.

SO WE REWIND OUR FOOTAGE

TO WHEN NICK AND I WERE DOWN HERE WITH AARON,

AND WE FIND A VERY CLEAR SHOT

OF WHERE THIS BROOM WAS POSITIONED.

(Aaron) IT'S RIGHT THERE.

(Billy) THAT BROOM IS SECURE.

YOU CAN EVEN SEE IT SITTING AGAINST THE G--

LIKE RIGHT THERE. SEE IT?

(Zak) IT'S ALL RIGHT THERE.

(Nick) YEP. THERE IT IS. SAME ONE.

(Billy) DAMN. AND IT HIT THE BRICKS?

LOOK AT THIS.

AND THAT'S IN A GROUT JOINT.

THIS IS IT RIGHT HERE.

HOW DID THAT GET OUT OF THERE?

SO THE MOST INTERESTING THING IS,

IS IT HAD TO CLEAR THIS LIP.

(Nick) YEP.

HOW THICK IS THAT?

UM, IT'S ABOUT--

ABOUT AN INCH.

THIS 1-INCH FRAME IS VERY IMPORTANT

BECAUSE IF THE BROOM JUST HAPPENED

TO SLIDE DOWN THE BRICK ON ITS OWN,

THIS 1-INCH LIP WOULD'VE CAUGHT IT.

BUT WHATEVER MADE THIS BROOMSTICK MOVE

ALSO HAD TO LIFT IT UP OVER THE LIP

IN ORDER TO CLEAR IT.

SO COOL

TO TOUCH AN OBJECT

THAT WAS JUST TOUCHED BY A SPIRIT.

(chuckles)

(Nick chuckles) YEAH. I NEVER THOUGHT OF IT THAT WAY.

WAIT, WHERE DID THE SPIRIT TOUCH IT?

LIKE, I WANNA TOUCH WHERE IT TOUCHED.

THAT WAS GREAT. GREAT!

(Nick) GREAT!

(claps hands)

THE PALMER HOUSE HOTEL HAD SURPRISED US

WITH THE HIGH LEVELS OF DARK ENERGY WE EXPERIENCED

BEFORE OUR LOCKDOWN.

IT'S CLEAR THE MOST ACTIVE AREA--THE BASEMENT--

IS THE FOCAL POINT OF THIS ENERGY,

AND IT SEEMS KELLEY'S DIGGING FURTHER

AGGRAVATED THE SPIRITS THAT HAUNT HERE.

BUT MANY MYSTERIES STILL REMAIN.

WHOSE BONES DID SHE FIND?

HOW DID THEY DISAPPEAR?

AND WHAT OR WHO WAS THE SPIRIT THAT AFFECTED HER?

WE WONDER IF THE VICTIMS OF THE FIRE OF 1900

ARE THE SOURCE OF THIS ACTIVITY.

OR COULD THERE BE SOMETHING MUCH WORSE

THAT HAS MARKED THIS PROPERTY AS ITS OWN?
