Paranormal documentary shows where ghosts reside

INDIANAPOLIS — When the living choose to seek communication with the souls of the dead, tempt fate by calling forth spirits in a state of unrest, tread where fear is sure to follow, they may find that all roads lead to Ghostville.

Filmmaker Dan T. Hall’s seventh paranormal documentary, “Ghostville,” premieres at the IMAX Theater at Indiana State Museum at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26.

Hall focuses his camera on the world of the supernatural as he chronicles the exploits of paranormal investigators seeking confirmation from the other side.

Follow these citizen ghost hunters first into the Glore Psychiatric Museum, which rests on the grounds of St. Joseph, Missouri’s State Lunatic Asylum No. 2, which opened in 1874 and closed with countless tormented souls of former patients still roaming the deserted halls. The museum is filled with barbaric “therapy” devices and personal belongings left behind.

Then it’s on to Indiana’s own Owen County Home, built in 1878 to house the poor and the mentally disturbed. With a number of recorded incidents of violence occurring on the property, more than the walls are talking.

Investigators have captured electronic voice phenomenon, heard demonic growls, and even been chased from rooms.

These ghost hunters — psychics Marilene Isaacs, Cassidy Owens and Anara Whitebear; paranormal groups Living Dead Paranormal, Scientific Minds Paranormal and Night Stalkers; and investigators Jason Wilkerson, Jill Werner and Tim Poyter — have one mission: to bring back evidence of contact with the spirit world.

Hall’s other paranormal documentary credits include “Central State: Asylum for the Insane,” four ghost stories documentaries investigating haunted locations throughout Indiana, and last year’s “Haunting of Fox Hollow Farms,” chronicling spirit activity at alleged serial killer Herb Baumeister’s former residence.
