The really awesome sunset that we captured after dinner tonight.
I feel like I need to give my readers a little update on what’s going on in my crazy paranormal world at the moment…
I’m excited and honored to have been asked to participate in some joint EVP experiments in the next several days. This invitation comes from an experienced researcher whom I have a lot of respect for. I hope to keep you informed whenever it’s possible.
Marilyn and I have conducted and documented two séances in the last few weeks. I’m in the middle of analysis on the first one right now. I hope to have some video highlights or a report of that very cool experience posted soon.
MOSS Investigation Reports
I’m a little behind in posting final MOSS investigation reports with evidence online. I hope to do that soon. The reports have been completed, but there is a lot to do to make them appropriate for online viewing. These include reports from the joint investigation of the Fort Chaffee Prison and a recent private residence investigation. The analysis of my part of the Carthage Opera House investigation is ongoing.
My Spooky Fall Movie Progress
Soon I’ll watch The Innocents and let you know how it was. Check out the list of movies I’ve been watching this fall.
And Finally… LIFE!
Yes… the real job has prevented me from locking myself in the house and being a practicing paranormal researcher/investigator/blogger recluse for as much as I’d like… but one can dream though, right? 🙂
Last weekend I watched the first movie from my list of Movies I Plan On Checking Out This Fall. Before researching for my list, I guess I always assumed that The Changeling from 1980 was just an earlier version of the more recent movie with the same name (minus “The”), starring Angelina Jolie. They are completely different movies. I found the whole movie on YouTube. After some time there is a slight sound delay, but it didn’t both me too much. (By the way, I’ve discovered that some of these old classics are out of print and not even available… so if you can’t find them, search on YouTube.)
There’s a 36 year difference between the oldest and most recent movie on my list. The Changeling is the most recent, but it still has that classic spooky movie feel that I always prefer. I very rarely enjoy all of the computer generated imagery (CGI) of modern-day films. I get a much bigger scare out of some good sound effects, an emotional score, an incredibly spooky setting, darkness, a ball bouncing down the steps, or a secret dusty room that has been untouched for decades. This movie has all of those things.
As far as spirit communication goes, this movie fits right into the subject of this blog! After seeing the trailer I knew there was a séance in the movie. But I had no idea, and was so surprised to discover that EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) also played a role… and a very important one! Most researchers credit 1959 as the year EVP was discovered… at least EVP as we know it. So, EVP existed during the time The Changeling was filmed, but it certainly was not a common subject of interest, and we didn’t know as much about it then. It seems that featuring EVP in a film at that time was probably risky. Well… I mean I was two years old, so I didn’t know anything… but you know what I mean. It was really cool to see it since I’m so passionate about it.
And… George C. Scott was great in this film. Other than A Christmas Carol and Patton, which I watched in a high school social studies class, I don’t remember seeing him in any other movie.
Watch the Movie Trailer
If you haven’t seen this movie, you should… then report back here! I’m also still taking suggestions on some good classics to watch for fall. They don’t necessarily have to be spooky I suppose.
