Virginia (statewide) – Reality Program Seeking Haunted Locations

The paranormal reality show “R.I.P Files” is seeking haunted locations with historical relevance throughout Virginia. If you know of anything that meets these requirements send to Patricia Martin at ghosthunterpat@gmail.com.

All help is appreciated!

Here is a description of the show from the R.I.P Files’ website:

“The R.I.P. Files features a group of paranormal investigators, who use their psychic abilities and their deep knowledge of metaphysical techniques to interact with the entities they encounter at haunted locations. These investigators encourage the spirits to share their stories in their own words through amazing EVPs and other evidence that is bridging the gap between the worlds of science and spirituality. The R.I.P. Files explores the issues of life and death that we all must face. As they learn and grow in their profession, making new discoveries that push the boundaries of paranormal research even further, the investigators also find themselves compelled to examine the effects of their activities on their own lives, on the lives of those around them, and on the spirits themselves.”
