haunted documentary films

The Houdini séance has been a Halloween tradition for nearly a century. Shortly before his death, on October 31, 1926, Houdini made a pact with his wife Bess that if he could, he would return and make contact with her from the other side. But after 10 séances in 10 years, October 31st, 1936, Bess had not received her beloved husband's personal message.

Beginning in 1964, authentic Harry Houdini séances were held each Halloween night in Sonoma County, California. Organized by Bill Soberanes (Argus-Courier Newspaper Columnist). The séances continued until 2002. This documentary film tells the story of how the séances started, the secret locations where they were held, the people that attended, and if contact was made.
