The Book Summary : The real Paranormal Activity as seen on Ghost Adventures with Zak Bagans. Bobby Mackey hired Carl Lawson to work as a handyman at Bobby Mackey's Music World in Wilder ~ called "the most haunted place in America!" It is a country/western bar and nightclub, that is well known for its mechanical bull, located at 44 Licking Pike in Wilder, Kentucky ( just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio ). It is better known for more violent encounters with spirits than anywhere else in the US. Visitors and staff members report everything from poltergeist-like phenomena, to disembodied voices and laughter, to actual physical attacks by unseen forces. Bobby gave Carl an apartment as part of his pay. It wasn't long before demons and evil spirits, who had dwelled on this property for years, took contol of Carl. They saw him coming, they watched him enter and now they would tell the master he was here. Carl Lawson began to change and the change was caused by the demons that entered his body and possessed him. This story is based on numerous eyewitness testimonies, paranormal research that documented ghostly and poltergeist attacks, reincarnation and demon possession ( there are, on record, 29 sworn affidavits of sightings, several from police and clergy ) and also the film footage of the exorcism that took place once the demon took full control of Carl Lawson. Paranormal Investigator Doug Hensley was called in to determine the causes for the strange occurrences. Mr. Hensley made some startling discoveries. This book based on true stories, has been the subject of National TV Shows such as Geraldo, Sightings, Encounters, Sally Jessee Rapheal, A Current Affair, Real Ghosts, The Other Side, Ghost Adventures, Taps Ghost Hunters and many more. Read America's Most Documented Haunting, Hell's Gate.
My Point of View ( P.O.V ) : What a book this is. It freaked me out totally. Death of Janet @62 in 2009, and Carl @54 in Jan'12 ~ makes me wonder, why they died so young. I came to know about the place when I watched the Ghost Adventure series ( 1st season ) - and saw the Trio getting attacked and oppressed. Even though one might think that it could've perhaps been an act, the series of events however, that has happened in the place, makes you think otherwise. I've also seen the exorcism video mentioned in the book, then again even if its fake it doesn't explain why that man died so mysteriously, at a young age. Something is there for sure. And I do believe in the paranormal and know for sure that there are certainly things out there. I've experienced it too, so no matter what anyone says my beliefs won't change. This book narrates all the incidents that has occurred and one must really read it if only to know about the paranormal. The book has another version - The Exorcism of Carl Lawson.
Positives : Its the real deal. Read and get spooked.
Negatives : The book has several typos, but then it is not a literature kinda book. Some incidents may seems exaggerated or too unreal.
Who will enjoy this? - Spook Lovers!
