Review: American Ghost Hunter

American Ghost Hunter
American Ghost Hunter is a Chad Calek film about ghost hunting, whose storyline is exceptional and authentic.

The film opens in with an interview in a motel, setting the scene correctly. The entire Calek family experiences poltergeist activity in their home in Persia, Iowa. It is where Chad’s search commences. The answers aren’t quickly found. There are many avenues explored for an explanation.

The storytelling is high grade telling the Calek’s family paranormal and personal experiences. Chad Calek was 12 years old when he had his first series of paranormal experiences. This experience and subsequent experiences led Chad to create this movie (and several TV shows), in an attempt to uncover the mysteries of his past and find closure.

There are lots of unexplained phenomena as you’d expect in a ghost hunting movie. There are the haunting stories behind the locations that are as fascinating as the unexplained phenomenon.

This documentary, it has excellent pace, it engages the emotions. The storytelling has you ride, hunt and feel with Chad. It is a reality-based documentary and has those real-life honest and confronting moments all packaged well inside the overarching story.

American Ghost Hunter is Chad Calek’s passionate and powerful journey uncovering the secrets of the paranormal. You can tell this movie is a labour of love, there is something I’m sure every viewer can take away with them as the credits roll (and possibly tears roll).

This story haunts me and for that, as well as all the reasons above this are 5 out of 5 haunted hills.

Korumburra “paratour” premiere

I watched this movie at the AGH Television premiere at Coal Creek Korumburra on the 07.06.15 where, Chad, Justin and Joey were there and able to ask questions. It was a great experience to see the passion and how brave it was ever to tell this story. If you’re interested in film making and creating documentaries, I’d highly recommend attending as well.

You can see it or order it through AGH Television:

They’ll be “paratouring” in 2016, I’d highly recommend it.
