“Portal to Hell’s” New Owner: Zak Bagans

Posted on Updated on

zak_bagans_fuck off ghostsI have mixed feelings about Zak Bagans’ Travel Channel show “Ghost Adventurers,” even though I am a fan. They seem to have a knack for disrespecting spirits and taunting demons. However, their show is a nice contrast to the more serious “The Dead Files,” which takes a methodical, more global approach to examining places with possible paranormal activity. “The Dead Files,” pairs Amy Allan a medium with Steve Di Shavi on each case. Amy and Steve disseminate evidence separately, then provide the families a comprehensive report, with historical data, about events that may have lead to hauntings.   They also provide suggestions on how to deal with any paranormal activity.  Zak and his crew have a more of a “bull in a china shop” approach.

As The Haunted Librarian notes, Zak recently purchased a property in Indiana, known as the “portal to hell.”  He plans to live there, while his team investigates any activity. What could possibly happen? Oh boy.  Dangerous, does not begin to describe the world of hurt they may be unleashing, if they go into that situation ill-prepared and full of piss and vinegar.  In other words, the way they walk into all of their investigations.

API will be discussing this case and possible repercussions on their show, Thursday and I am curious to hear their take. Tune in, folks.

“Portal to Hell’s” New Owner: Zak Bagans

Granted I’m a tad tardy to the discussion, but I’ve decided to jump into to fray. Ghost Adventurer’s Lead Investigator Zak Bagans has purchased the “haunted” house on Carolina Street in Gary, Indiana. He paid $35,000 for the “modest” property. Bagans is quoted as saying: “I really [have] a passion for this stuff… .” This smacks as a publicity stunt!

Charles Reed, the former owner, sold the property days after a local newspaper published a story whereby calling the house the “Portal to Hell.” Former renter Latoya Ammons, along with her three children and mother, moved into the house in 2011. During the following year, Ms. Ammons claims that one child levitated over a bed, another child walked backwards up a wall, ominous footsteps were heard, and the animal elicited strange behavior. Catholic priest Rev. Michael Maginot exorcised…

    I’m going to fake some ghosts so I can sell my house to Zak. Is it just me or does it always seem that they are totally making up what the ghosts are saying when they’re listening to static?

      Yeah, and I’ve got a haunted bridge to sell him… LOL

      They tend to “see” and “hear” more than I do, even when they raise the volume and slow the video down. But, I’ve always thought that was their schtick. They’re the bitchen, buff, frat boys of ghost hunting.

      I cannot wait to hear Archer Paranormal Investigations’ take on the whole thing (on their radio show).

    What rock have we been hiding under?? lmao. These shows sound right up our alley. Can’t believe we didn’t even know about them. Although I think Dead Files sounds better than Ghost Adventures. Will be checking this out for sure. Love anything dark!! Great post Michelle! 😉
