For hundreds of years, those looking to make contact with the spirits of the dead have gathered together by candlelight, taking part in the ritual of seance. Today, the art of the seance is widely disregarded as merely a game played in the dark of night, but what if we told you that there was more to it? What if we could not only communicate with a spirit from beyond the grave, but independently verify his identity?
In THE SEANCE, veteran paranormal researcher John E.L. Tenney (Destination America’s Ghost Stalkers) leads an intimate group in the lost art of spirit summoning. By pairing modern day paranormal investigation equipment with age-old Spiritualist techniques, the result is an interactive experiment so successful that it’s turned skeptics into believers. But THE SEANCE isn’t just a live performance of a classic spirit summoning, it’s a chance for brave volunteers to take part in a groundbreaking year-long experiment being filmed for a documentary series.
WILL YOU MAKE CONTACT?
Over the next year, random groups of diverse individuals – skeptics, believers, and those still on the fence – will come together in some of the world’s most haunted locations to conjure the spirit of a man whose identity is known only to three people: John E.L. Tenney and Planet Weird’s Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews. So far, the information gathered by these groups has been shockingly accurate.
When the experiment has finished, data collected over a year of persistent contact with a single spirit will be released, and if our theory is correct, the results will shatter modern day beliefs about paranormal investigation.
THE SEANCE is not a magic trick, illusion, or theatrical performance. It is a genuine, controlled experiment in repeatable communication with an otherworldly intelligence.
