Ghost Adventures at Execution Rocks Tonight!

Execution Rocks is given its name because British soldiers used the rocks around the island to carry out executions. They would chain the prisoners up at low tide and wait for the water to slowly rise until the prisoners were drowned. The prisoners were in the water for up to twelve hours before the water rose high enough for them to drown.

It is standard for a lighthouse keeper to commit to living in a lighthouse for a year. However, lighthouse keepers at Execution Rocks were allowed to cancel their contracts and leave at any point. Many keepers were frightened by strange phenomena and choose to leave early.

One of Americas most notorious serial killers, Carl Panzram, was a big fan of the lighthouse. Carl Panzram once stated, "I have murdered 21 human beings. I have committed sodomy on at least 1000 male human beings. For all of these things, I am not in the least bit sorry." The lighthouse was his chosen place to dump the dead bodies of his victims.

With all of the dark history surrounding the island, is it a wonder that few paranormal investigators have payed visit to the lighthouse.

Rob Hatch, Producer of the Baltimore 48-Hour Film Project, in collaboration with the world-renowned Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA), proudly presents “48 Hours of Madness: A Cinematic Celebration of Edgar Allan Poe”, a series of free film screenings on December 4 and 11, 2009, each beginning at 8:00 p.m. at the BMA.

In honor of this year’s bicentennial of Poe’s birth, 17 filmmakers from around the greater Baltimore area selected a Poe character and line and were assigned one of three themes from the BMA’s exhibit, “Edgar Allan Poe: A Baltimore Icon”. This event explores how different filmmakers and filmmaking teams took such themes as Fear and Terror, Love and Loss, and Madness and Obsession and turned them into dark, macabre, humorous and surreal cinematic visions.

Different films will be shown at each screening, and the museum will open at 6:00 p.m. for this special event. For more information, visit or

Ghost Adventures head back to Washoe Club this Friday

The guys head back to where it all began at the Washoe Club in Virginia City Nevada. They are re-visiting the location where they got their first documented video evidence of a ghost. The reason for their return is that several investigators have recently caught voices inside the Washoe Club calling out Zak and Nick by name. 

The voices don't have nice things to say. Fellow investigators Mark and Debbie Constantino show the guys some EVP's saying, "Nick Groff," "Hate Nick," and "Zak look out." It appears the these spirits have unfinished business with Zak, Nick, and Aaron. 

The guys will also be locked down in a location they did not visit during their previous investigation: The Chollar Mine. It is said that there are spirits of miners still stuck inside the mine. Countless men have died inside the mine thanks to fires, falls, electrocution. Once locked down, the guys hear the sounds of people working inside the mine.
