The 2008 'Ghost Hunters'' Live Halloween Event

Wanna see something really scary this Halloween but don't want to leave your couch? Tonight, the Sci Fi Channel's popular, ghost-busting team, JASON HAWES and GRANT WILSON, are camping out at one of the country's most actively haunted locations -- 2008 Halloween Special - Ghost Hunters Live - will air October 31, 2008. TAPS conducts a seven-hour, live, return investigation of Fort Delaware with guest host Joshua Gates of Destination Truth.


Rhode Island Roto-Rooter plumbers by day, Jason and Grant founded The Atlantic Paranormal Society group, better known as TAPS, to help de-bunk local hauntings by using unflappable gadgets such as digital thermometers, electromagnetic field (EMF) scanners, infrared and night vision cameras. Since then, their weekly "Ghost Hunters" show (9 p.m. Wednesdays) has grown into a cult hit. But this Halloween night, from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. EDT, is the only time that viewers in most of the country (it's taped on the West Coast) can actually text the Ghost Hunters directly via www.scifi.com and contribute sightings during their live investigation!

The Houdini Seance on the Internet Oct 30-Oct 31.

The Halloween Houdini Seance on the Internet - Oct 31. http://houdini.org/halloween2.html

The Halloween Houdini Seance, which has a been a tradition for the past 80 years since the great magicians untimely death, has now moved to cyberspace. The seances, held by Houdini's wife for the first ten years after his death, and then passed on by her, will be held on the Internet for 24 hours on Halloween on the anniversary of his death. Scranton's Houdini Museum, the only museum in the world entirely devoted to Houdini, is asking everyone on the web have a place in their mind the great feats of Houdini sometime during those twenty four hours.
The Houdini Museum, a non-profit organization, has a large web site of over 100 different Pages on the world wide web. The Houdini Museum has gotten many awards for its Internet site including being chosen as one of the "7 Wonders of the Web." They have also been chosen as one of the 50,000 best sites on the Internet chosen from many millions by Net Guide. They gave the site three five star and one three star rating in various categories, with five stars being the highest rating in any category. The Houdini Museum can be found on the Internet by typing in the words Houdini Museum Scranton on any of the major Internet search engines. The actual web address is http://www.Pocono.org/houdini.html

The Houdini Museum has been in Scranton for nine years, and open to the general public for four years in the Scranton/Pocono area. Prior to that a part of the exhibit was on display for 13 years at the famous Magic Towne House in New York City. The Magic Towne House was the location of the Houdini Seances in New York. New York City was where Houdini lived for most of his life, until his death.

Although these have been called "seances" by many, it was really meant as a scientific test between Houdini, his wife and friends. Some of magic¹s most famous personalities have attended previous seances held by the museum including :

Dorothy Dietrich, considered one of the world's leading experts on Houdini, as well as a world re- nowned female magician and escape artist. She has appeared on many major TV specials including a star- ring role in a Home Box Office Special tribute to Houdini hosted by Tony Curtis, who played Houdini in the film biography, 'You Asked For It," a Bill Cosby Special, The Tom Snyder Show and many others. She also appears in Atlantic City and Las Vegas.

Famous author Walter B. Gibson, author of "The Shadow." He was also a Houdini biographer, ghostwriter, confidant of Houdini and his wife Bess. He was the only one to have ever seen Houdini's "secret notes" before they disappeared. Houdini's wife asked him to carry on the "seances." Before he died he asked Dorothy Dietrich to carry on the tradition of the yearly tributes to Houdini called by many "seances."

Milbourne Christopher, magic historian, and writer of several books on Houdini attended most of the New York "Houdini Seances" at New York's Magic Towne House before he passed away.

John Bravo, well know magician, editor and publisher of Hocus Pocus Magazine, with many TV and club appearance to his credit. He is also a director of The Houdini Museum.

It should be noted, Houdini never said he was coming back, or that he would open handcuffs at a seance, etc. He was the exposer of the very people who claimed they could get messages from dead relatives, make their ghosts appear, etc. He said such things were in his experience not possible, but being the greatest escape artist/magician that ever lived he, Houdini, would try to escape from the beyond. He is credited with putting this whole area of racketeering out of business. After ten years of no results his wife Bess sent out a letter to participants saying "since the failure of the ten year TEST, it is my opinion that all concerned have struck a mighty world wide blow at superstition." They are now done as a tribute to the great artist, but who knows? Being one of the greatest publicity artists of all time, he could return via the Internet. He would have loved it.

And please have a Spooktacular October!
