TOP spirit medium Derek Acorah is bringing his supernatural powers to the Leas Cliff Hall this summer.

The star of Living TV, who famously tried to contact Michael Jackson live on air months after the pop star died, will be appearing at the Leas Cliff Hall on Saturday, July 14.

Derek Acorah

The show, part of the True Vision tour, starts at 7.30pm.

Acorah, who last appeared in the area in October 2010 when he visited New Beach Holiday Park in Dymchurch, is well-known for his close interaction.

A spokesman for the venue said: “Derek is undoubtedly the UK’s number one spirit medium.

“The star of Living TV’s Ghost Towns, Most Haunted, Most Haunted Live and The Antiques Ghost Show brings his hugely entertaining evening of psychic ability back by popular demand.

“Wherever he appears his shows are sell-outs, so book early to avoid disappointment.”

Acorah claims that his first supernatural experience came as a child when the spirit of his late grandfather visited him.

The 62-year-old, real name Derek Johnson, has taken his shows across the world and has also released several books, including The Psychic Adventures of Derek Acorah. Read the rest of this entry »

Ghost Doctors

Something strange is going on in Queen’s Flushing Meadows Park says Pete & Stew Kandel (known as Dr. Pete and Dr. Stew) noted paranormal investigators and licensed NYC tour guides aka New York’s own “Ghost Doctors.”

“Flushing Meadows Park was the home of the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fair with nearly one hundred million people visiting these grounds just for the fairs alone, which makes for a lot of “spirited’ fairgoers that may still be hanging around,” says Dr. Stew. The two ghost hunters say they have found some strange and ghostly activity within the 1255 acre wonderland located in the heart of Queens.

“We have investigated this area and found some paranormal activity especially from the remaining remnants of the two World’s Fairs,” says Dr. Pete.

Joining them on their ghostly hunt, the Ghost Doctors will lead groups of ghost hunters in training on actual investigations through this historic area. With equipment in hand, like something out of one of those ghost hunting television shows, they’ll prowl Flushing Meadows for ghostly encounters.

“We’ll investigate those areas of Flushing Meadows where we have found some past activity, but of course we are always continually searching for any new phenomena that may be encountered,” says Dr. Pete.

The Ghost Doctors say, being in Flushing Meadows is almost like being in an outdoor museum considering all the historic and iconic structures that are still standing. “Maybe with a little ghost hunting and a bit of luck, we might even hear a soft whisper coming from this amazing park,” says Dr. Stew.

Ghost Doctors (http://www.ghostdoctors.com), based in New York City, is the premier ghost hunting tour in NYC that actually allows participants to experience “real” ghost hunts. Their ghosts hunts can be suited for both public, private and corporate events.

Paranormal Activity 3 ads slapped with pre-watershed ban

A TV campaign promoting big screen horror sequel Paranormal Activity 3 has been curtailed by the advertising watchdog after complaints that children had suffered “personal distress” from the ads.

The campaign, by Paramount Pictures, comprised a series of three 10-second TV ads shot as if they were taken on a home video camera.

It showed furniture being violently moved around, a woman being invisibly pulled backwards and thrown on a bed, and eerie silhouettes of people in darkened rooms.

The Advertising Standards Authority received 29 complaints about the campaign even though it was only cleared for broadcast after 7.30pm to protect younger viewers.

Viewers complained that young children had been upset by the ads, that a number had reported “personal distress” and that the campaign should not have been broadcast before 9pm.

Clearcast, which pre-vets ads before they are broadcast, said that the audience was old enough to know the 10-second clips were a trailer for a horror film which had been given a 15 certificate.

But the ASA said the ads should not have been broadcast before 9pm and imposed a pre-watershed ban on the campaign.

Ghost hunters bring data to the Chamber

Members of Emerald Coast Paranormal Concepts brought back the audio and video they analyzed to give the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce an idea of the possible spirits at the Russ House.

In addition to the audio files posted on www.jcfloridan.com, investigators Tracy and Susan Todd played additional audio files for Art Kimbrough, chamber president and CEO, and Mary Pettis, chamber executive vice president.

The files contained indistinguishable speech that had either a male or female sound to them. In one incident, the voice seemed to respond to Susan’s question of whether the spirits wanted the group to leave.

“I can pick up the rhythm of the sound, but I can’t distinguish it,” Kimbrough said after listening to one such recording.

Some of the audio files contained suspect sounds. The investigators asked Kimbrough and Pettis if the sounds came from any of the house’s electronics. Neither Kimbrough nor Pettis could think of anything.

One of the sounds was a sound like gunshots or cannon from the upstairs kitchen. The other sounded like sniffing or scraping near the recorder. Tracy said the scraping sound was heard on two separate recorders. When timed to the video camera also in the room, none of the room’s occupants had moved.

Spruce up a haunted lighthouse or green up a bayou

March 14th, 2012 by CVPI

“Tourism Cares” is inviting interested members of the travel industry to “unleash their inner gardener and the painter in them” at the 2012 Tourism Cares for America volunteer project in Pensacola on Florida’s Panhandle, scheduled for March 29 – 30.
Volunteers can choose from two different projects: helping with much-needed repairs of an historic, and said-to-be haunted lighthouse; or helping to restore a 233-acre bayou by planting native vegetation.
“Thirty-eight painting projects both inside and outside of the lighthouse – which sees 100,000 visitors a year– and eight landscaping projects spread over eight acres will keep Tourism Cares volunteers busy for eight hours and will make a dramatic difference to tourists’ experience there,” the group says in a press release.
“As anyone who has participated in our previous volunteer efforts knows, we are not all work and no play,” said Bruce Beckham, Executive Director, Tourism Cares. “In addition to giving back to an industry from which we have all profited, our Tourism Cares projects provide plenty of opportunity to network and socialize with other members of the tourism industry.”
Registration costs $99 per person and includes admission to a welcome reception, full day of work projects, breakfast, lunch, barbeque, and after-work party. Discounted accommodations at The Crowne Plaza Pensacola Grand Hotel are available for $105 nightly.
The Pensacola Give-Back is Tourism Cares’ fourth volunteer project in helping to restore the Gulf both before and after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.
One of America’s first settlements, Pensacola is rich in history and culture, as well as being known for its beautiful white sand beaches. Archaeological sites, one of Florida’s oldest churches, and museums and houses furnished to reflect periods from the early Spanish explorers to the Victorian era afford a glimpse into the past.
To register for the event or support the effort by becoming a sponsor, visit www.tourismcares.org/volunteer.

Coco Says She Fell Victim to a Perverted Ghost

Coco says that she ran afoul of a lecherous ghost at one point. The reality star recounted the tale on HDNet’s Naughty but Nice set recently, saying that a ghost tried to undress her.

“I believe in ghosts because I had a perverted ghost at one time,” she said. “It’s true! During the day when you think of ghosts, you think of it being dark and foggy and misty outside but every time I saw or felt anything it was in the daytime and there was no fog out there. I was watching TV, I was sitting on the couch at 11:00 AM and I was wearing a nightie and I felt my dress move up my leg. I looked down and got freaked out. I pushed it down, watched TV, felt it again and I could see it being pulled up. And then I felt a guy breathing in my ear.”

She noted that Ice-T’s lack of belief has likely kept the ghosts away now, noting, “I haven’t seen many because I think with Ice not believing, that it scares them away. The ghost followed me from Albuquerque to Arizona, but not to New York.”

Ghosts Reportedly Haunting Adele’s Fairy Tale Mansion

We recently told you about Adele’s new jaw-dropping digs – a 10 bedroom mansion in West Sussex, England – but all is not well with the singer, who now believes the home is haunted!

The British chart-topper had been living it up in her multi-million dollar mansion that rents at the pricey tag of $24,000 a month, but now she fears staying there alone due to possible paranormal activity – reportedly telling her friend that the house “gives me the creeps” after hearing one too many peculiar sounds in the night.

The security industry is getting a boost from Adele being so spooked – she’s moved her female bodyguard into the house for 24/7, monitoring at the low annual rate of £100,000. Additionally, she’s hired two new security guards to add to her task force and protect the 25-acre property. The creepy estate used to a be convent and even has a private chapel on the grounds – adding to the possible haunt factor.

“Adele was so excited to be renting such a lavish property, but it has not turned out as happily as it should have,” a source told The Sun. “She is convinced it is haunted. She knows about its religious history – and it’s a big place to be in on your own in the dead of night.”

Ghosts are rather prevalent in the entertainment industry. So much so that there’s a television show – “Celebrity Ghost Stories” – which has included appearances from Tom Arnold, Joan Rivers and ghostbuster Ernie Hudson. Not to mention last year when the mansion that housed all the “American Idol” finalists was reportedly haunted. The contestants were so freaked that they were quickly moved into a new ghost-free abode.
