Storyline

Paranormal investigator and documentary filmmaker Chad Calek (Guest Star and Director of A&E's Paranormal State and The Ghost Prophecies) returns to his hometown of Persia, Iowa in hopes to put an end to the 20 year reign of suffering that his family has endured due to an overwhelming amount of intense negative paranormal activity. Armed with the support and paranormal knowledge of best friend and paranormal investigator Ryan Buell (Star and Executive Producer of A&E's Paranormal State), as well as world renown psychic Lorraine Warren, who's also known for her work as the primary investigator in the Amityville case, Calek is determined to not only solve the mysteries as to why the paranormal phenomena initially began, but also to finally bring an end to the activity that has been tormenting his family for over two decades.

Wow
1 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is hard to find words to describe this magnificent film. Chad has such an incredible creative mind and it shows a thousand fold in this movie...from the camera angles to photos to webisodes and movie posters. Everything about this film is a touching emotional roller coaster. I am moved to tears every time I watch it.

Get ready for a crazy ride when you watch American Ghost Hunter because it does have great evidence as well. This movie is not just about what Chad's family has endured but about why it all started in the first place...so some investigations take place at some pretty crazy places. I LOVE IT!

I admire the bravery of Chad and his family for putting their entire lives up for scrutiny. Congrats on a job well done.
