World Network Premiere airing on the Sci-Fi Channel July 25th, 2007

This Raw Documentary has sparked a tremendous amount of controversy by the strong paranormal evidence captured and the extreme taunting manner in which Bagans conducts his investigations. Adding to the film’s hype is its Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary given by the New York International Film & Video Festival in 2006. The film was also nominated for Best Feature Film from the Eerie Horror Film Festival in 2006. Ghost Adventures has also traveled to the Berlin International.film festival and the Cannes film festival as part of the festivals’ markets. Yarek Danielak, CEO of Arsenal Pictures International, will represent the film for all global territories.
Extreme ghost-hunting and controversial taunting is brought on by one man, Zak Bagans. He and two members of his crew target locations haunted by evil where others won’t set foot. In this raw documentary, a full-bodied apparition is captured on camera from the Old Washoe Club in Virginia City, Nevada, where in the crypt they use to dishonorably stack and store dead bodies from disease and mining accidents in the late 1800′s.
Bagans then targets his extreme investigations at locations where the owners are crying out for help, one being the Goldfield Hotel in Goldfield, Nevada. Abandoned and one of the “SCARIEST PLACES on EARTH” -FoxTV, Bagans and crew member Nick Groff are then pad-locked inside for an entire night. During its heyday in the early 1900′s, there were rapes, murders and other crimes of passion committed within its thick walls,a recipe for trapped souls. Built on top of a mineshaft, their investigation quickly leads into the decrypted maze basement, where a poltergeist will send them jumping from a second floor window.
