Overview

PARANORMAL STATE ran on the A&E network from December 2007 through May 2011. This documentary program was comprised of a team of Penn State University students who wanted to help those troubled by unexplained phenomena. The Paranormal State/Paranormal Research Society's motto was, "To trust, honor, and always seek the truth." The show starred founder and director Ryan Buell along with his group of technicians, investigators and occult specialists. He was often assisted by such paranormal celebrities as Chip Coffey, Lorraine Warren, Chad Calek, and Michelle Belanger. The team supposedly helped frightened clients and collected evidence of the unexplained.


PARANORMAL STATE EXPOSED is co-authored by the most controversial figure in the paranormal field, Kirby Robinson. Along with co-author, Lisa Maliga, they explore the rumors of staged scenes, questionable evidence, misleading editing, and duped clients. As other paranormal programming comes along imitating this style of presentation, it's vital that the problems are investigated. With a step-by-step analysis of every episode, the authors present the facts. They give voice to those present on the set ranging from production staff, former clients, and various para-celebrities. Casual viewers and diehard fans of the program are taken beyond the thermal cameras, EVPs, atmospheric music, and sound effects. PARANORMAL STATE EXPOSED uncovers secrets about what went on behind the scenes, and it answers questions about the show's validity. In almost every single episode the reader may find one or more of the following: staged scenes, planted or falsified evidence, fake exorcisms, and crew members masquerading as experts. We learn of clients who were ridiculed, and those who were promised help but were left with more problems. The authors also analyze Ryan Buell's book, PARANORMAL STATE: MY JOURNEY INTO THE UNKNOWN.

PARANORMAL STATE EXPOSED includes:

* Shocking new evidence.
* All episodes from seasons 1 through 5 and PARANORMAL STATE: THE NEW CLASS.
* Para-celebrity/former client Shannon Sylvia reveals PRS's deceptions.
* Production staff members share trade secrets.
* Featured para-celebrities and their questionable actions.
* Authors respond to the detractors.
* Two different break-downs of an episode that exposes the tricks.
* A new and revelatory ending!

Authors Kirby Robinson and Lisa Maliga spent countless hours viewing footage and listening to audio tracks. They interviewed former clients, production team members, PRS crew members, and various para-celebrities. The reader journeys behind the scenes of what might be the most problematic paranormal reality show to air on cable TV.

PARANORMAL STATE EXPOSED will keep the reader up past Dead Time – not in a state of fear -- but discovering the veils of secrecy and deception being lifted and the truth exposed.

    Get a life

    This is the author's second book on ths same subject, and it's basically a rehash of the first. His obsession with Ryan and "Paranormal State" is starting to feel more like a vedetta instead of genuine concern for the field of paranormal investigation. You've stated your concerns, so let the subject rest and get back to your own investigations.
