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.

An Unusual Documentary Being Shown in An Unusual Way
10 June 2011 | by aarongartonSee all my reviews

You will not be able to rent "American Ghost Hunter" at your local video store, let alone see it in a movie theater -- as of yet. The sole "distribution" of this film is at events hosted by Director and "star" of the film, Chad Calek.

The Calek family of Persia, Iowa were affected by numerous unexplainable and tragic events which culminated in hauntings experienced by the family in their new home. The story of a family reacting to supernatural events is nothing new. What could have become another "Amityville Horror-esque" documentary takes a decidedly riskier twist when Calek turns the camera on himself and asks "why?"

The journey for answers not only surprises the viewer, one can see it surprising Calek as well. As he digs deeper, Calek finds that his family's story may well be part of a far larger and more interesting tale than he originally imagined.

The film ventures into uncharted territory for this genre.
