Halloween is months away, but for the crew of Newfoundland and Labrador Paranormal, it’s always a good time for a séance.
Newfoundland and Labrador Paranormal (Saturdays at midnight on NTV) documents the team’s spiritual stakeouts of the most haunted locations the province has to offer.
“Our favorite location so far has been Mockbeggar Plantation in Bonavista,” says Erin Sonley, co-creator of the show. ”It has a history that dates back over 300 years and is said to be the most haunted place in Newfoundland.”
For citydwellers, Sonley suspects amateur mediums won’t have to travel far to find a phantasm.
“St. John’s has such a long history that there are ghost stories from everywhere,” says Sonley. “Most of them seem concentrated in the downtown area. This is probably because of the age of the buildings and the number of people who have been through them over the years.”
The gang is expanding their portfolio to include Newfoundland’s version of Bigfoot and other cryptozoological specimens.
“We’re looking forward to contributing for the search for out lake monster ‘Cressie’.” Cressie is the eel-like creature that allegedly lives in Crescent Lake, near Robert’s Arm, which has been spotted by locals since the 1950s. “Soon as the weather breaks, it’s a road tour to find Nessie’s long lost sister!”
