About Nathan Drake Schoonover

My name is Nathan Schoonover. I am a student of history and the occult, as well as a Master Mason. I am also a paranormal researcher and skeptic. I believe in the possibilities of the paranormal and I accept that there may be evidence to support it; however, I do not believe anyone has captured proof of its existence. I’ve spent 20 years working with ghost hunters, psychics and other researchers; I’ve peeked in back doors, watched occult ceremonies, and joined in pagan rituals even though I’m not a pagan myself; I have spent years talking with paranormal witnesses and studying the philosophies of believers and nonbelievers in the supernatural. I was a consultant on the “Everything Ghost Hunting Book.” As a trained physician’s lab technician I am very methodical in my research. I have recently appeared on Travel Channel’s “Paranormal Challenge” as an investigator, in 2009 I was co-host of A&E’s two-night special “Extreme Paranormal,” and in 2007 I appeared as a local historian for’s “Streets of Fear.” I also appeared as an EVP specialist on a supernatural episode of the Maury Show and have recently appeared as a skeptic on a new web series call Paranormal Valley. I was co-host of the “Ghostman & Demon Hunter” radio show from 2007-2011. Our show was voted one of the Top Ten Paranormal Shows in America by Haunted American Tours for three consecutive years.

My Review of Prometheus

What can I say about Prometheus with out giving away any spoilers? Well after seeing it last night I can say it is, in my opinion, the most visually impressive movie Ridley Scott has made yet. It is worth watching in 3D. Personally I really liked the first 2/3’s of the film but did not care for the last part. The story just seemed to fall apart.

The Elizabeth Shaw character played by Noomi Rapace from “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is obviously our Ripley type personality this time around. David, played by Michael Fassbender of “X-Men: First Class,” who is referred to as a robot from the beginning seems to be part Bishop part Ash, but you feel for him and that’s always a good quality it a character. Meredith played by Charlize Theron is the only other person of interest which is why, when other characters start getting involved in the last 3rd of the movie, the story starts to lose some of its consistency.

At the end I walked away asking “why?” But “why” is the underling question to this movie so maybe that is what were are meant to ask.

I would give Prometheus 3 1/2 out of 5 stars but if you are a Ridley Scott fan you will not want to miss the images in this film. Besides there is a good lessen to be learned from this movie. If you are going to land on an alien planet, bring a gun.

Pennhurst Paranormal AS SEEN ON TV

I’ve gotten to investigate Pennhurst twice now. I was there once on Extreme Paranormal and once on Paranormal Challenge. It’s a great place but it has always been closed to the public. They are now open for ghost hunters for $1000 a night. It’s a lot of money but they allow 20 people so if you ever wanted to host an event it might be a good place. Looks like they also have public hunts for a $125 but the page says they only investigate Mayflower and Quaker was my favorite. Here’s the page if you would like to check it out.
