SYFY’S POPULAR SERIES HAUNTED COLLECTOR INVESTIGATES THE HOME OF HOLLYWOOD LEGEND ORSON WELLES IN WEDNESDAY, MAY 8 EPISODE

NEW YORK – May 2, 2013 – Is a Hollywood icon haunting a house?

 

Eminent paranormal expert John Zaffis, host of Syfy’s popular series Haunted Collecter, travels to Hollywood to investigate ghostly disturbances in the grand home where legendary film director Orson Welles once lived. The episode premieres on Syfy Wednesday, May 8 at 9PM (ET/PT).

 

As Zaffis and the team learn, odd paranormal events began when home owner Joe Liebke first screened the Welles’ classic Citizen Kane --- considered by many experts the greatest movie ever made – for friends. All was well until the television began flickering, followed by a complete loss of power throughout the house – the only home to mysteriously go dark while electricity in the rest of the neighborhood remained on.

 

Following this incident, there was a steady escalation in unexplained activity, including a moving shadow figure that has unlocked a dead-bolt right before his eyes, phantom footsteps and bizarre electrical outages.

 

Academy Award-winning musician Paul Williams, who once lived in the house, appears in the episode.

 

Haunted Collector is produced by Gurney Productions. Executive producers are Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney.

  • The End

    Some of these press releases are pretty funny. This show is by no definition popular, but rates well enough to get the greenlight for further seasons. Even then it’s not breaking any records because the bar has already been set incredibly low for paranormal shows.

    If they’re able to sell ad time, it’s popular enough.

    I WONDER WHAT THE “THE HAUNTED COLLECTOR” CAN STEAL FROM ORASON WELLS’ HOUSE. HIS HEIRS BETTER CHAIN THE VALUABLES DOWN. OMG I’M SHOUTING-I REALLY HATE THIS SHOW.

  • TV Viewer

    In 1938, Orson Wells fooled a lot of people into thinking that his radio broadcast of H. G. Wells The War of the Worlds (updated from England to New Jersey/New York) was an actual news broadcast of an alien invasion. He showed people not to rely on just one source to get your news, because that source might be wrong and the people associated with it could make a mistake.

    Orson Wells was also a very talented magician. I doubt if his house is really haunted, and it probably just has some of his left over magic tricks.
