Episode 1: The Demon Jar Part One – The first installment of our Demon Jar investigation finds Jason, Peter and the team at an undisclosed location in the Interior of British Columbia — a hotel that’s seen its fair share of deaths, apparitions and negative energy! We’re introduced to the team and the location, and given eerie hints at what was uncovered during the investigation.
Here’s what show writer/director Jason Hewlett had to say about the M.O. of the series:
As someone with a long-time interest in the paranormal, I was excited to partner with Peter Renn of Vancouver Paranormal Society to investigate this fascinating and under-studied topic. As a journalist and filmmaker, it seemed natural to document our adventures in as authentic a way possible, and allow the viewer to make up his or her own mind. We hope this series informs and entertains, while opening people to the possibility there’s more going on around us than we think.
The investigation at the allegedly haunted hotel begins, as lead investigator Peter Renn splits the team up to best cover the most ground. We learn more about the hotel, its history, and how a paranormal investigation is conducted. Jason, Sarah and Marcus explore a couple of rooms, while Peter, Shawn and Brandon tackle a few others. Things slowly begin to happen, and build to a startling discovery.
