Halloween Gift: A new video (Peg Entwhistle Investigation)

Investigation at the Hollywood Sign on the anniversary of Peg Entwhistle’s suicide.

YouTube, compressed the audio so much that it’s quite hard to hear the Peg Entwhistle EVP.  Please take a listen to a cleaner version here (MP3 format):  PegEntwhistleEVP


What you may be missing on Instagram

Did you know we’re on Instagram? If you haven’t been following us, here’s a small sample of some of the fun you’ve been missing. It’s not too late to find us – we are simply LAHauntings over at Instagram! To the left, Scott Markus and Connor Bright take a moment to rest at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.  

 

 

 

 

The perk of working in the film industry is access to places that are off limits. For a few days, I got to work on the haunted backlot of Culver Studios, even working on the soundstage where “Wizard of Oz” was filmed.

Visiting the historic neighborhood of Hollywoodland – the reason the Hollywood sign was constructed in the first place (which also originally read “Hollywoodland”). Above you can see the original stone walls that once held a gate, keeping Hollywoodland exclusive.

We were present at the annual Rudolph Valentino memorial service, held every August 23rd at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Conducting at paranormal investigation at the Cobb estate in Altedena, CA.

Of course, we had to find some horror movie filming locations too! On this day, we found where one of the most memorable scenes from one of the classic horror films of all time was shot. Malibou Lake, deep in the Santa Monica Mountain range played host to 1931’s “Frankenstein,” and much later hosted “The Ring” and “Twin Peaks.” In all, over 100 productions were filmed at Malibou Lake, including “Gone with the Wind,” “The Great Dictator” and “Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.”


Photos: LA & Hollywood Ghost Tour at night!

We recently conducted a private ghost tour of LA and Hollywood. During our escapades, these night time photos were taken. The above picture was the result of an impatient photographer (me) who set the shutter to be open far longer than the camera could be held motionless for. However, in all the eerie-ness that is the Knickerbocker Hotel, from love-lost-suicides to Houdini seances, this is a perfect representation of one of the most epically and historically haunted buildings in Hollywood.

If the Pico House looks imposing in this picture, it should. This area witnessed the tragedies of the Chinese massacre and currently holds a violent and physically active spirit.

In the heart of Hollywood stands a building that represents Hollywood’s heart. After all, this is where a young Marilyn Monroe did her first photoshoot. Since then, she went all over the world, becoming one of the most iconic actors of all time. However, it is here that she returned. People can still catch a glimpse of her in her personal mirror, now on display for all to see.

There appears to be a storm gathering over the Jim Henson studios, but the biggest storm was a storm of creativity that happened here after Charlie Chaplin built this lot in 1917. His most well-loved films were shot here including “The Kid,” “City Lights” and “The Great Dictator.” Any place that has housed so much creative energy for 100+ years is bound to house some spirits and this place delivers.

Hollywood is a town built on passion and dreams and long shots. Unfortunately, that means that it’s also a town built on shattered dreams. One dream died in this lobby when Sam Warner, one of the famed Warner Brothers, collapsed. He died shortly thereafter due to a cerebral hemorrhage that stemmed from an untreated sinus infection. What made the tragedy even more extreme was that his death happened the day before the premiere of “The Jazz Singer,” which was the first ever talkie and also cemented his company as a major Hollywood Player

The Formosa Cafe, which was originally just this train car, holds countless Mafia secrets over the years. Since it’s located across the street from a studio, the clientele was and still is, largely famous actors. Who are the shadow people that now call this location home? Victims who fell on the wrong side of the mob or some of the many people who loved this place dearly in life?
