Whether you're a skeptic or a believer, these fascinating and frightening true stories will keep you up at night!

BLZBUB, March 27, 2010 (view all comments by BLZBUB)
In 1984 the question: "Who you gonna call?" was forever immortalized on the silver screen in Ivan Reitman’s GHOST BUSTERS. For those of you who somehow slept through the eighties and managed to miss this movie, it was a about an outcast team of professors with an affinity for investigating the paranormal and capturing ghosts.

In the movie Dan Aykroyd (Stantz), Bill Murray (Venkman) and Harold Ramis (Spengler) strap on proton packs and blast away at evil spirits with particle beams and containment traps, eventually saving New York City from a giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. While far from reality, the movie entertained and started what some might call an obsession with the paranormal, second only to William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist.

Unlike GHOST BUSTERS, The Atlantic Paranormal Society (T.A.P.S.) is a seasoned team of professionals who research and help in very real cases of the paranormal. SEEKING SPIRITS: The Lost Cases of The Atlantic Paranormal Society is the follow-up to T.A.P.S. bestselling GHOST HUNTING: True Stories of Unexplained Phenomena from The Atlantic Paranormal Society.

The same reading formula of CASE-ADVICE exists here as is the glossary in the back, defining some of the terms used by today’s ghost hunting experts. Thirty-six cases of some of the most spine-tingling, thought-provoking, head-scratching WTFs T.A.P.S. has experienced in its 10+ years, make this a read that will please anyone’s appetite for a taste of the late night jitters.

Several of the cases really intrigued me (or left me wondering rather), like in the case of POTS AND PANS, where a man is plagued with a spirit that moves his furniture and stacks his cookware into a neat pile on the kitchen floor. I mean seriously, I’m ghost trapped on earth and that’s what I choose to do? Or, in a more serious case, BESIDE HERSELF, where a woman finds that forgetfulness is a result of living with her own doppelganger.

OUR BIGGEST REGRET stands out most though. Ontario Canada native, April Singer, has been relentlessly attacked in her bathroom and she reaches out to T.A.P.S. for help. Unfortunately, this is before the success of SYFY and T.A.P.S. lacks the resources to fly to Canada and help; however, they do aid in trying to find another group in Canada that might—to no avail. Eventually the calls from the woman stop and theirs go unanswered, until one evening they receive a call from a distraught woman informing them that her sister [April] is dead, and that she hit her head on the bathroom sink and then drowned in the tub that was over ten feet away.

No matter what your belief in the paranormal, there’s no doubt that the team over to T.A.P.S. has helped numerous people who’ve struggled with the unknown. Be it a case of someone who just wants to get on TV, or a family who’s in desperate need for answers, they’ve consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty, applying best practices and setting the standards in this truly unconventional science. My hat's off to these guys and their ongoing efforts.

Final Verdict:

For whatever the reason, the paranormal has always held a fascination with me. SEEKING SPIRITS has afforded me a brief, vicarious glimpse at some of the most intense and thrilling documented cases on the subject. If you’re looking for some real-life experiences by two of the most respected men in this field, then this is one read you won’t want to miss.
