Haunted Relics & Curiosities from the Antique Man from Salem

Haunted Relics & Curiosities from the Antique Man from Salem

January 27, 2020

What if the object of your curiosity in that creepy, old antique store comes with its own haunted past? A victorian oil lamp? Letters from a haunted asylum? A shelf that mysteriously crashes? Meet Christian Marcus whose collection of quirky curios can be found at his shop Diehl Marcus & Co. or on the walls and halls of some of Los Angele's hippest bars and nightclubs. 

Christian Marcus has worked in the field of interior and set design for over 25 years, in theater, film, theme park, and commercial design. He co owns Diehl Marcus and Co. with his wife Erika. Part shop, part event space, this antique specialty shop was created by the couple in the Edwardian style. The building dates back to 1924 and has been variously a photo studio, silent film producers office, and tailoring shop. Several guests have remarked on sensing the presence of a young woman in the back section. Christian, who hails from Salem, MA has had several odd experiences while working at the shop, from swinging chandeliers, to bells that ring of their own accord. A seance held in the space resulted in items crashing off a shelf.

What do UFO Abductions & Hauntings Have In Common? Ask Psychophysiology Legend Dr. Barry Taff

What do UFO Abductions & Hauntings Have In Common? Ask Psychophysiology Legend Dr. Barry Taff

January 20, 2020

Dr. Barry E. Taff holds a doctorate in psychophysiology with a minor in biomedical engineering, and is a world-renowned parapsychologist who worked out of UCLA’s former Parapsychology Laboratory from 1969 through 1978 as a research associate.  During his four-decade career, Dr. Taff has investigated more than 4,500 cases of ghosts, hauntings, poltergeists and conducted extensive studies in telepathy and precognition, eventually developing the initial protocols and methodologies for what was later termed “remote viewing”.  He also, was himself, investigated as a psychic subject, the results of which were published in Behavioral Neuropsychiatry, “A Laboratory Investigation of Telepathy: The Study of A Psychic”, Vol. 6, Nos. 1-12, April-December 1974-January-March, 1975.

 

One of the cases Dr. Taff investigated in 1974 gained international fame as the book and motion picture, The Entity, starring Barbara Hershey and Ron Silver, released by Fox in 1983.  Dr. Taff served as technical advisor on The Entity as well as being represented in the film by the character “Gene Kraft”. What’s unknown by the media is the fact that, in real life, The Entity followed its female victim for quite some time after our initial investigation, continuing its vociferous nature. Allegedly, Doris Bither died in 1999 of cardiopulmonary failure at the age of 58.

 

He has consulted for government, business, and law enforcement, including the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Language Institute (DLI), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the FBI, Interpol, LAPD, California Highway Patrol, Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department, and the Westminster Police Department. He has served as a technical advisor or script doctor on the films Logan’s Run, Demon Seed, Altered States, Poltergeist, and The Entity.  Dr. Taff has written numerous articles for magazines and journals, and has been featured in many books on paranormal subjects ranging from precognition to UFOs.

Sean Austin, Ghost Loop

Although Sean has always wholeheartedly believed in the 'unexplained', becoming a paranormal investigator was by chance. After over a decade of supernatural experiences that still baffle him to this day, Sean continues to search passionately for evidence of the unexplained. Sean was a featured investigator on the pilot series "The Demon Files", which aired on the Destination America Network. As part of a team headed by the well known Denomologist and retired NYPD Seargent Ralph Sarchie, who became the inspiration for the movie "Deliver us from evil", Sean was mentored in the field of Demonology. Ralph taught Sean how to approach cases of the demonic in the extreme recesses of the paranormal. It was while jumping head first into this new realm of the supernatural, Sean had also developed his natural psychic and mediumship abilities and applied them to his new journey into the paranormal. "It is great to be your own piece of equipment while investigating with the  other types of technologically advanced devices we have today to provide evidence". In his first published work "Shadow Chaser", Sean follows the pursuit into the unexplained that he started from the beginning.  Along with Sean's years of experience as a musician,  he has trained his ears to aid in his investigations. "Experiencing a new tier of mystery on every investigation is a privilege that is beyond humbling. Implementing these experiences and ultimately helping people with their spiritual needs is humbling and allows me to share these experiences with the world". Now, in the Travel Channel's TV series "Ghost Loop", Sean is the lead investigator of a team with a mission to assist people dealing with a diversity of hauntings, including helping trapped souls who may be reaching out from the other side. @seandaustin https://seandaustin.com
