2017 has been a fun and interesting year for sure! A big thanks to the Haunted Magnolia Hotel Seguin, Texas where we continued our always exciting public investigations throughout the year. One instance there we captured video evidence that got picked up and played across several major news stations in the USA, the clip even got discussed by Coast to Coast AM and Disclose.tv to name a few. We had a nice write-up about our upcoming Season 3 in the The Daily Texan , got interviewed by UpLateAustin , and was given the opportunity to host KLRU-TV, Austin PBS‘s night of spooky programming on Halloween night! This year Strange Town began a new live investigation streaming series – “Undead Live”, which has been tremendously fun to do, and we have been excited to hear the feedback from our viewers. The biggest thanks of course goes out to YOU, and all of our subscribers and followers. Your support means so much to us, and we really love bringing everyone new paranormal content to watch and be a part of! We are looking forward to the New Year, and we hope 2018 brings good fortune and happiness to all! Happy New Year, and Happy Haunting From Strange Town, Billy Driver & Mark Morrow
In December 2013, we filmed an episode in Manor, TX which we entitled “Santa Claws”. This private residence had reported claims of a girl roaming the upstairs hallway, a woman’s unseen voice dictating in the kitchen and a piano that played itself along with other malicious claims. During our investigation, Mark had been physically attacked by something unknown to us. We knew at this point, the activity was in a different realm. One year later, the home became too much to handle. The family called us back after their son reported seeing a tall, black shadow figure with “glowing red eyes”. Seeking help, we invited local clairvoyant Ed Carter to revisit the property with us. He performed a cleansing to rid the home of the negative energy. Here is the unreleased footage of that cleansing, along with newly documented EVP’s that will send shivers down your spine. Happy Haunting. The Original investigation from 2013 done at the home: Season 1 – “Santa Claws”
Last month we captured this anomaly during our public investigation at the Haunted Magnolia Hotel in Seguin, Texas. We’ve recorded bugs on our DVR cameras before, but never anything like this. Has anybody else seen a bug or anomaly such as this before? Thoughts? Video plays at regular speed a few times, then 25% speed.
NIGHT 1 Thanks to everyone that made it to our investigation at the Haunted Magnolia Hotel last night! Their was a considerable amount of activity in the Raid Shelter via the Spirit Box and flashlight communication. Upstairs was a female spirit that enjoyed communicating thru the ST-13 and flashlight. Strange orbs and shadows were captured in photos throughout the night by guests. Upon arrival, Billy witnessed a pair of disembodied legs in the Raid Shelter followed by a deep breath, and at the end of the night Mark saw a 6ft tall shadow figure pass by a doorway when he was alone upstairs. Tonight is Round 2 of investigations! NIGHT 2 Night #2 of our Public Investigation at the Haunted Magnolia Hotel was our largest group in attendance to date! We were really glad that everybody was able to attend and participate. The Raid Shelter had two accounts of pebbles/rocks being tossed at people, and we captured a VERY peculiar object on our DVR camera down there. We will post a video of it after further analyzation.The most active area of the night was for sure Sam’s room, he repeatedly confirmed his name over the Spirit Box and asked for whiskey numerous times. Sam’s large shadow was seen and photographed by various group members throughout the night! We hope the everyone shares their evidence by posting and tagging @StrangeTownShow and @HauntedMagnoliaHotel And lastly, a huge thanks to the hotel owners Jim & Erin for allowing us to do these events, and of course to the hotel’s caretakers Dawn & Susie for their on-going support, enthusiasm, and for staying up very late into the night helping out both nights.
This Halloween Night on KLRU-Q, starting just before 8pm Billy and Mark will be your hosts’ guiding you through this night of spooky shows, leading up to their spookiest episode of Strange Town at 11:30pm. Birth Of The Living Dead at 7:59 pm In 1968 George A. Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, a low budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day. Birth of the Living Dead shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers to shoot a revolutionary guerrilla-style film that went on to become a cinematic landmark, offering a profound insight into how our society worked in a singular time in American history. Secrets of the Dead Vampire Legend at 8:55 pm Follow scientists as they uncover “deviant” burials dating back to medieval England, pointing to a belief that the dead could rise from their graves. Predating Eastern European legend, these discoveries force a re-examination of modern vampire lore. Frankenstein & The Vampyre at 9:55 pm A fascinating exploration of one of the most significant moments in gothic history – the night when Mary Shelley, Lord Byron and their cohorts gathered together at Lake Geneva to tell ghost stories and the night when Frankenstein and the modern vampire were born. Haunted Texas: Peyton Colony at 10:50 pm A half hour visual exploration into the history of Peyton Colony, Texas in the Texas Hill Country. Going back in time the program introduces you to the people and places that existed in Peyton Colony also known as Freedman’s Colony, a settlement established by former slaves after the Civil war. Strange Town Bridge To The Other Side at 11:20 pm Legend goes that a man was hung from the Moore’s Crossing bridge in Austin, TX. It is said that at Midnight you can see him hanging from the highest crossbeam, with the woman he loved watching from below. Strange Town visited the bridge and stayed late into the night to see for themselves whether or not this long standing tale holds any truth. Strange Town Old Yoakum Hospital at 11:29 pm Once a thriving hospital to the city of Yoakum, it now sits abandoned for the last two decades. Stories have surfaced of a mysterious blue nun and dark shadows appearing down hallways along with children spirits running within the walls of this building. Wait until you see what energies Mark and Billy of Strange Town encounter! HOW TO WATCH: Over the air: 18.3 Grande: 284 Spectrum: 20 and 1268 Google: 77 Suddenlink: 143
