With only one re-shoot left for us at the Eldred House in Eldred, Illinois, our movie Ghosts ofWar is now moving into post-production. We will be editing the film over the remainder of July and most of August in order to make an early Fall/Halloween release. There will be local premieres of the movie held in Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi (held in conjunction with the locations featured in the movie). For those of you who have been following the production of the movie, you probably know the majority of these places--with the exception of our most recent shoot in Kentucky.
Over the past weekend, the Paranormal Inc team travelled to Franklin, Kentucky to investigate (and shoot production footage) at the infamous Octagon Hall. Folks in the paranormal community have been visiting this location for years to catch a glimpse of poor Mary Elizabeth--a young girl who was fatally burned in the home's kitchen basement. Many groups have had success at this location (if you Google the place, you'll come across some great EVP's and photos) and we hope to do the same. We will be reviewing the footage/evidence from Octagon Hall over the next weeks. What most people probably don't know, though, is that Octagon Hall is also a significant location with relevance to the Civil War. This history, along with the paranormal activity that happens here, will make for a great sequence in the movie.
Stay tuned to this website for a trailer of the movie early in August--as well as a loose schedule involving screenings of the film, any television premieres and the official date for the release of the movie to DVD. As for Paranormal Inc, we will be posting our findings for several other investigations soon--including our visit to the Lehmann House in St. Louis MO, the Carter House in Franklin TN, and the North Panola County Hospital in Sardis MS...
