Saturday, November 14th, 2015, we were invited to the Wrap-Up party for the DEADMONTON HOUSE; an incredible Halloween haunt that takes place in the old Edmonton (Alberta) abandoned Paramount theatre.
Ryan Kozar, a firefighter in Edmonton is the creator and “ghastly” puppet master behind the scenes. It will be even scarier in 2016! Because we provided one of the hearses that sometimes parked outside the haunt to advertise it, we were lucky to be included.
We saw familiar faces who are good friends of ours and met new people who are just as crazy as we are about Halloween. Ben and I had done an investigation earlier in the year – August, in the theatre and got some photos and some good video. Our friend Jessica followed us with a video camera. (we will have footage and photos posted in the new year) We could not put up some of the photos/footage because of the fact that Ryan needed confidentiality in what and how he was setting the haunt up.
Anyway, I digress; as we were partying, I asked my good friend Rebecca YEGFoodie Reid, one of the BEST food critics/Yelper in Edmonton, to take me on a tour of the darkened theatre/projection room/basement areas. Reason being, that when a building becomes used for re-enactments or haunted amusements, the energies change. It brings out spirits who are attracted to the specific theme, i.e., people in period costumes re-enacting historical events; or in this case – horrifying makeup, silicone masks and scary costumes running around frightening people (and having fun while doing it).
So, guess what I found walking around the building with Rebecca???
- 2 creepy male spirits, one with razor pointed teeth, sitting on the couch in the costume/green room, the other spirit not well defined. Enjoying the volunteers changing into character and watching the females get undressed.
- A spirit I couldn’t even identify in the downstairs boiler room. Creepy lurking kind.
- A spirit with undefined male and female traits in the creepy Doll Room. Someone who was imprisoned or captive when alive.
- A dominant male spirit who was some type of murderer or serial killer in the Corn Field area.
The poor resident spirit of the theatre, Frankie, is a very submissive spirit and was hiding most of the time. As the official spirit custodian of the theatre, this is something he can’t really clean up. The odd thing with the majority of these new spirits that had infiltrated the theatre, was the vagueness of who they are and what they are. Usually I can see exactly who they are. Not here. But the energy level was so thick with bad and horrific feelings that you felt like there were eyes everywhere and something was trying to get behind you.
I know YOU’RE going to say: “But it’s a haunted amusement with creepy staged scenes everywhere; of course it’s going to feel like things are watching and trying to get you.”
I’m going to say: “Yeah, I know! I’m seeing with my medium abilities, not the conventional way of seeing.”
We are hoping to do a follow-up investigation because of all the new spirit activity and to make sure they leave, but Frankie he custodian spirit, stays. Stay tuned to the blog to find out what happens next!!!!
