Among Friends is a horror (and a comedy, depending on how twisted you are) about a dinner party gone wrong. Set against an 80s backdrop, the good time takes a dark turn when one in the group hijacks the evening in an attempt to help the others come clean about their secret betrayals against one another–and is willing to cut through the bone in order to expose the truth.

If you’re eagerly awaiting some new samples of NecroFusion, the upcoming album from Travel Channel’s Zak Bagans (Ghost Adventures) and EDM legend Praga Khan (Lords of Acid), then look no further! The Travel Channel has put together a video that shows “A Life In The Day Of Zak Bagans”, wherein all the music comes from Bagans’ upcoming album (due out Oct. 23rd). You can watch the video below.
“Paranormal Paparazzi” is a new show on the Travel Channel that brings the celebrity/entertainment side of horror and the “real” side of horror together. They’re already opposite sides of the same coin anyway, why not bring them together in a catch-all travelogue that allows them to riff off of each other. Aaron Sagers hosts the show (in addition to writing for CNN and running ParanormalPopCulture.com).
I hopped on the phone with Sagers this afternoon to discuss how this new show differs from producer Zak Bagans’ “Ghost Adventures” and the general all-around hijinks they’ll be up to this year.
The show airs on Fridays so that means it will be play tonight, October 5th, on the Travel Channel with two back-to-back episodes beginning at 7p.m. ET. It will also beHead inside to check out the interview. READ MORE
When it was first announced that Ghost Adventures host Zak Bagans would be teaming up with Lords Of Acid founder Praga Khan to create NecroFusion, an album that utilized actual EVP recordings, I was kind of skeptical. How exactly would that work? What would it end up sounding like? Well, now we have a chance to hear a song from the album entitled “Room 20″. Check it out below.
The song documents Bagans “discussion” with actor David Strickland, who was known for his role on NBC’s “Suddenly Susan”. Strickland committed suicide in Room 20 at the Oasis hotel. It was there that Bagans recorded his discussion.
According to Bagans, “After hours of recording sessions, I felt a sudden, intense presence of energy, and I knew I was not alone. I began communicating with mind-blowing responses. One of the responses I got was when I said ‘hello’ to Strickland, and he replied ‘hi, Zak.’ I asked if he could hear me and he said ‘yeah.’ At this point, I was getting intelligent responses, one after the other. I asked how many other spirits were present, and a female voice began shooting off numbers for me – ‘seven, eight’ – at which time I asked ‘Do you see other dead people?’ And Strickland’s voice came through again, telling me he ‘sees the Lord.’ I asked him if he knew where he was, and said ‘Oasis.’ This was one of the most powerful spirit communication sessions I have ever conducted.”
The album will be released Oct. 23rd. What are your thoughts? Cool gimmick or obvious Halloween cash grab? READ MORE
Zak Bagans, the host of the Travel Channel’s popular paranormal show Ghost Adventures, has teamed up with Lord Of Acid‘s Praga Khan to release an album entitled NecroFusion, which will be released Oct. 23rd (Halloween music anyone?). The album will feature 11 tracks, each telling the story of a different spirit. Each track will also use actual EVP recordings of the ghost in question, making these “true stories”. Khan wrote and recorded the music while Bagans wrote the lyrics and provided spoken word/vocals for the tracks.
Khan states, “Working on this album was one great experience from start to finish. When Zak came up with the idea to record an album with EVPs, I was both surprised and excited. I had absolutely no idea what to expect. When he sent me the audio files that he had recorded with his Spirit Box and I listened to them, I really freaked out. This was scary stuff.”
Bagans adds, “For me, spirit communication is the most powerful communication I’ve ever encountered. The most powerful messages are delivered through music, and music truly influences the way you feel, it stimulates the emotional memories of your life. With ‘NecroFusioin,’ we’ve blended together these two powerful forms of communication – spirit and music. And the earthbound spirits have a lot to say.”
