winter_poster_CC (1) copy (1)

Just in time for the holiday season, Ten Thirty One Productions (TTO) – the freakishly creative minds behind the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride – have announced the return of The Great Horror Campout.

Described as a “12-hour, overnight, interactive horror camping adventure,” the one-of-a-kind, original production will kick off right here in Los Angeles June 5th and 6th, with more cities and dates to be announced in the coming months.

According to Melissa Carbone, Ten Thirty One Production’s CEO, campers will be able to choose their level of scare along with their level of engagement by choosing two or four-person tents in different tent zones that offer varying levels of frights. The experience can be an extreme horror adventure or a more mild horror adventure based on preference. “We are developing a night that is packed with layered interactive content to provide our campers an experience that they will never forget. This chapter will again continue to push the envelope and kill the spectator sport status quo in the live attraction space. Campers will leave feeling like they have been fully submerged in the experience for the entire night.” “This year’s Campout will be the best yet,” added Carbone. “Our goal is to get campers to go further and further down the rabbit hole. The further they go, the more they engage, the bloodier, scarier, more challenging the experience will get. At it’s core, Campout is just fun where there is something for everyone.”

Along with the kickoff announcement, TTO has also announced a special “Bloody Friday” sales event in which campers can take advantage of the lowest ticket prices of the year.

Child’s Voice…

Our friend Jessica sent us this creepy audio clip that she recorded while investigating a reportedly haunted winery on the Oregon coast. There appears to be a (female?) child’s voice on the recording, talking over the group while they are discussing the time. There were only a handful of people present, with no children present and no one heard the voice at the time.  

Can you make out what it’s saying?

Shout out to Jessica B., Chris Y. and Greg G. — thanks for sharing this!

MAJOR NETWORK ANNOUNCES SEARCH FOR SUPERNATURAL OCCURRENCES

January, 2014: An intense search is now underway to find couples or individuals who are experiencing unexplained, perhaps supernatural occurrences to participate in a ground-breaking new program.

 

This new program will feature a team who will engage in the comprehensive outfitting of your home using never-before-seen, cutting-edge technology and equipment. As our team takes a hard look at “cases of the unexplained,” our selected participants may finally find the answers to questions they’ve been asking for years.

 

“It’s not enough for our candidates to have a story of an unexplained ‘bump in the night,’ or a photo with what looks like a thumbprint on the lens,” says an Executive Producer on the project. “Rather, our candidates will have genuine, hand-wringing concern for mysterious occurrences that have haunted them for years.”

 

Casting Directors from Metal Flowers Media are currently seeking candidates to participate in this highly selective project. Individuals or couples who are currently experiencing an unexplained phenomenon – one that they ardently and passionately believe is otherworldly – are encouraged to apply. Each participant must have a credible story and be legitimately concerned and eager to engage and encourage these paranormal occurrences.

 

To apply, please email Casting Directors: casting@metalflowersmedia.com. Include the following: name, age, occupation, a brief description of yourself and your story, how long this has been happening, any explanation you have (if any), a photo, and your contact information.

 

You may also apply online at www.metalflowersmedia.com

Well, Los Angeles paranormal enthusiasts, friends, fans and curious passersby… we here at Los Angeles Paranormal would be remiss if we didn’t alert you to an upcoming paranormal event that is certain to be of interest.

The local Los Angeles paranormal case known as the “Ghost Writer,” or “Ghost Polaroids,” case has intrigued and fascinated many a folk who may have either read about it or seen it featured on any number of television shows, such as Fox’s “Sightings,” and, more recently, SyFy’s “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files.” The case involves a home located in the exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood of Mt. Washington – a home in which mysterious messages have appeared on polaroid photos taken over the course of a number of years.

Now, Los Angeles paranormal enthusiasts are being offered the unique opportunity to not only meet one of the long-time residents of the home and see the original polaroids firsthand, but to actually visit the Mt. Washington home as part of a special, 2-night only event, October 26th and 27th, 2012.
