"The most important skill you can foster as a paranormal investigator is being able to talk to people; because, if you're actually serious, you'll be doing that more than anything else. Learn to relate to people. Learn to listen to people, and learn to respect people." ~ Greg Newkirk
"... you, and everyone else, do not need to be on television to be amazing!" ~ Dustin
"Evil is real but can always be defeated by the light. That's the only thing that comforts me. I swear by it!" ~Billy

In the new episode of The Dead Files, Amy and Steve traveled to West Virginia to investigate an abandoned amusement park in the town of Lake Shawnee. This so-called haunted or “cursed” amusement park's ownership has been in their client’s family since 1985.
Chris’ father purchased the land with the intentions of restoring Lake Shawnee Amusement Park back to its natural splendor, when it the park originally opened in the late-1920s. However, due to health reasons, his father wasn’t able to make his dream a reality, and passed away before he could see what this land could have been.
With the recent death of his brother, Chris decided to reach out to Steve and Amy for help, as he is seeking advice on how to keep their family’s land safe from the overwhelming paranormal activity. Chris hopes these two paranormal professionals can instruct him on how to keep the property safe for his mother (who lives on the property), volunteers; and of course, their guests.
Here are some highlighted quotes from this exciting episode:
"It's totally normal to connect with one divination tool over another! It's possible you're mean to be working with runes at this point in your life. If tarot is something you really want to connect with, be patient and open, and when you're ready the right deck will appear." ~ Weird Dana
"For the 100 millionth time that I've answered this... the answer is NO! I've never seen or felt a damn thing, while doing investigations, or in my life. I do not get creeped out by locations. And, I am still open-minded skeptic, Amy has not changed my mind about that... #TheDeadFiles" ~Steve DiSchivi
"Could it be that I'm standing next to the legend himself, Rob
Clotworthy, narrator of #AncientAliens?
Ancient Astronaut Theorists say, Yes..." ~ Giorgio
"I don't like seeing myself on television, it's like listening to my voice on tape; but I don't have any problems with this shot. #KindredSpirits" ~ John Tenney
As seen on an episode of #KindredSpirits, tarot reading
By Weird Dana
"What you interpret as "dramatic" is actually a reaction of me being a sensitive and an empath. So when comparing me to other investigators we do not have the same anatomy, and while I can sense spirits others may not be influenced to that whatsoever. I like to say, We're all instruments...
just all turned differently. Let's respect the unique sounds of each other. #GhostAdventures" ~Zak
Billy, why do some black clothes look white and others don't in night vision camera?
Mike, Chris and Brannon traveled to Lake Shawnee during a Ghost Hunt Weekend event.
"Shout out to the people who watch ghost shows just to pick them apart.
We love you! Because, hey, at least you're watching! #KindredSpirits" ~ Amy
"Tarot is my paranormal investigation tool of choice, be it ghosts, goblins, or even Bigfoot!" ~ Weird Dana
"Here's some advice for newbie tarot enthusiasts! Get to know the interpretations, spend time with the powerful messages imbued in each card, and once you have mastered them, rediscover what they mean to you through your own intuition." ~Weird Dana
"People don't realize #GhostAdventures has done a tremendous amount of good for a great deal of people. I'm blessed to have been invited to be a part of it." ~ Bishop Bryan Ouellette
"Cotton shirts (any color) will appear white under Infrared or IR light." ~ Billy
"If you're going to provoke spirits, be prepared..." ~ Billy
In my humble opinion, Portals to Hell (on the Travel Channel) is one of the most informative paranormal reality television shows on television today... below are the quotes from Bobby Mackey's Music World to help you decide, if you want to investigate this haunted attraction.
Season One – Episode 3 – Bobby Mackey’s Music World
“It’s concerning to me when Laura (one of the paranormal tour guides at Bobby Mackey’s Music World) said to me, that some of the entities here follow people home, that’s my biggest fear when doing this kind of work.” ~ Jack Osbourne
“People are confused about portals. They always ask me, what is a portal, there’s nothing magical about a portal. If I use this cup to communicate with a demonic entity, this is now a portal. Once I use that device specifically to make communication with a demonic entity – you open up a portal, and that is what a portal is.” ~ Bishop James Long
“The minute, you step foot into a place, where you know it’s demonic, and the minute you ask, “Is anyone one here and make a noise?” Now, you have invited.” ~ Bishop James Long
Katrina explains to Jack about the religious medals given to them by Bishop James Long. Here's her analogy of both sides of the coin:
“If you believe in the religious objects that were given to you – that could form some sort of protection – so, if you did technically rid of them – you would be without protection – meaning, you could be a trigger. On the flip side, they could act as a trigger, so you had them on you – you could be more a target. If we are going with the theory, I am going that if there is more of a demonic force that would react to something that is blessed by a Bishop – then these things will act as a trigger."
“Those forces that control these portals are negative.” ~ Cindy Kaza, Psychic Medium
“I wouldn’t spend a lot of time in this place – I wouldn’t…psychologically it could really mess you up – really mess you up!” ~ Cindy Kaza
“That’s how they work; they (demonic) tell you little bits of truth, so you believe everything that came through.” ~ Katrina Weidman
“People have claimed that Bobby Mackey’s is literally a portal to hell and after this investigation – I would have to agree with them.” ~ Jack Osbourne
“If someone asked me my advice about investigating Bobby Mackey’s – it’s pretty simple: I would tell them not to go!" ~ Jack Osbourne
Paranormal Case Files
In this week's episode of The Dead Files, Amy and Steve traveled to Sauk Centre, Minnesota. These paranormal experts were called in by Kelly, the owner of The Palmer House Hotel. Kelly claims that her paranormal passion project has been become more of a nightmare lately - than her life's mission. She and her guest, Wyatt, appeared before Amy and Steve. The two poured out their hearts about how the paranormal activity has been increasing rapidly, and they want the dangerous dead to stop!
To be honest, I would have to say, during the reveal the energy in the room escalated to a new level, I have seen in a while. As Amy had no problem calling out Kelly. She saw visions of ghost hunting events during her walk-through. The dead confirmed, these events were being held regularly at this haunted hotel. Unbeknownst to Steve, he looked noticeably upset that Kelly wasn't honest about her actual intentions. As he knows, by now, these events are not always held with the mindset (and respect) for the dead.
"People seem to forget ghosts were people and why I do what I do is to help the dead." ~Amy
