Over the last five years, I have been blessed to be part of an excellent TV series, Niagara’s Most Haunted.
It took me to some really neat, historic places on both sides of the Canada / USA border. People often ask, “Gee, you shoot the entire show in the Niagara Region; don’t you run out of places?” You would think so, but the answer is, “No!” Well at least not yet. Thus far, we have had no shortage of places to film or people approaching us with ideas whether locally, through the Internet, or at public functions, such as Comic Cons, telling us about new places that we should “check out.”
The Niagara Region (in both Canada and the USA) is rich in history, perhaps because one of the greatest historical battles in world history, the War of 1812, was fought here. Obviously the ground where much blood was shed is still here, as are many of the historical landmarks, the buildings and ruins that still stand in places. When you combine these factors, violence, bloody battles, and angry deaths, remnants of negative energy are perhaps likely to remain. According to the experts–paranormal investigators, psychics and historians–I have worked with and spoken to over the years, this indeed is why they claim that the Niagara Region (both USA and Canadian sides) is one of the most haunted places in North America.
I like to think I am a man of science, after all I have a PH.D. in psychology, and practiced psychology.
The last person I would want people to think crazy would be yours truly! And for the most part I am a skeptic when it comes to ghost investigations and TV shows on this stuff. I am always thinking to myself, Psyche! They are setting these paranormal experiences up with special effects. Call me guarded! The last 2 seasons of shooting Niagara’s Most Haunted have been an eye-opener, and hair-raiser. Perhaps you might say that the skeptic in me got ‘spooked out’ as in removed, well at least from our own shoots. Michelle DeRochers, one of Canada’s foremost investigators has joined our crew for some really cool shoots in some of the most historical places in North America; Willowbank (a 200 year old mansion), Blythewood manor (a century year old bed and breakfast), and the old Town of Ridgeway, which features some very old landmarks from the War of 1812. She has very expensive paranormal investigation equipment. When you see your name (mine) appearing on an ovilus or hear it on a spirit box, even discussing events prior to our filming, you are like “Wow, okay…you have my attention!” DeRochers’ equipment was not only picking up my name, but the trotting sounds of horses, ‘images’ that looked like demons, or very ugly Rorschach inkblots that had complete unmistakable faces, orbs, and other messages that coincided with what previous owners only knew about the places. The layers of my skepticism were peeled back just a little more!
I know most people visit Niagara Falls in both the United States and Canada to see the two falls, and the various other tourist attractions. Often times, many visitors see my TV show, most likely by random chance while in their hotel rooms late at night. I get emails and messages on Facebook asking if I do tours of the countless places I have visited for the show. Unfortunately I do not! I can’t believe how many people love Halloween, haunted places and ghost stories. I have now written 3 books based on my show, the latest being The Niagara’s Most Haunted Experience. If you are ever in the area and want to see where there have been the sightings and sounds of ‘ghosts’ I urge you to check out my new book. I love the historical places and locations I am blessed to reside near, and want to share them with the world so to speak. What started out as a TV show to promote ‘history’ has become a show about ghosts, go figure! You can get my new book, along with the Niagara’s Most Haunted: Legends and Myths, and Paranormal Niagara: Cases of the Mysterious and Macabre all three for $1 this month right on my website—www.petersacco.com. Oh yes, in Paranormal Niagara: Cases of the Mysterious and Macabre, we revisited the famous 1970 poltergeist case that even the late great Johnny Carson supposedly brought up on the Tonight Show back in the day—police reports and all. Happy hauntings!
