A mom is going viral for capturing what she claims is paranormal activity in her baby’s crib, and TikTok is freaking out over the footage. Mom and TikToker, Erika Danielle erikadaniellexo, gained over million views and , comments when she uploaded the spooky video to her profile. In the caption, Erika writes, “We have paranormal things happen a lot in our home. Look close, or you might miss it.” The video starts off with Erika’s baby sleeping soundly in his crib — but within seconds, his sleep is disturbed, and he begins to toss. Finally, the toddler rises, sleepily rubbing his eyes. That’s when Erika believes she saw an orb flutter up and out from under the baby. The tiny light flies up from the mattress and disappears out of frame. “It looked like something was moving his leg from the beginning and then moved his head and arm! Like it was checking him out,” another user shared. But some didn’t think the alleged orb was anything to be scared of. “That’s an orb; it protects the baby,” wrote one user. Others were less comfortable at the thought of paranormal activity happening in the home. “Oh no, no, no, it’s time to move,” another user commented. While others flat-out rejected the notion of any paranormal activity taking place. “That is just an illuminated dust particle. You and your little one are safe,” one skeptic wrote. But the one thing all TikTokers can certainly agree on – when you have a baby in the home, you never know what the day may bring! From alleged paranormal activity to diaper blowouts, who knows what spooky wonders await parents in the middle of the night!

Mike Minogue as Officer Minoque and Karen O Leary as Officer O Leary investigate crop circles in Wellington Paranormal. Mike Minogue and Karen O Leary as Officer O Leary pose with an alien plant in Wellington Paranormal. From left, Mike Minogue, Sergeant Maaka and Karen O’Leary in the Wellington Paranormal office. That’s who producers of “Wellington Paranormal” cast when they saw how good Karen O’Leary and Mike Minogue were at playing cops sussing out paranormal behavior. O’Leary, a kindergarten teacher in New Zealand for more than years, had no intention of acting but one of the parents at her school was the show’s casting director and she “got me to have a chat…it turned out it was an audition.” Minogue, meanwhile, was a driver on film and television productions. “I’d done it for about five years and somebody at my work asked if I wanted to audition for a movie, which I didn’t want to do,” he says during a Zoom conference. “I’d never been interested in acting.” Still, he read the lines, got cast, then got another offer “and I just went from there. Then I did a very serious role in an anti-apartheid police drama which Wellington creator Jemaine Clement saw and he goes, ‘Oh, this guy’s funny.’ Even though I was doing my best dramatic performance.” “He looks like a cop,” Clement explains. “No matter what he’s doing. No matter what he’s wearing.” The two were first cast in “What We Do in the Shadows,” a film about vampires. That led to Wellington, a spinoff series that has been running for three seasons in New Zealand. Americans, however, got “Shadows” first on FX before The CW picked up the first two seasons of “Wellington.”
Stan AlleyNew Zealand Documentary Board Ltd. Wellington Paranormal s two cop characters pose for a selfie with an alien in the comedy series second episode. Mike Minogue and Karen O’Leary and an alien friend in “Cop Circles,” the second episode of Wellington Paranormal. It’s here! The first two episodes of Wellington Paranormal, the New Zealand-made series spin-off of the What We Do in the Shadows movie, are now streaming on the CW. You could just dash over there this instant and watch “Demon Girl” and “Cop Circles,” or you could check out this “extended” trailer the CW put out for anyone who might need further enticement. Honestly, that’s not much different if at all? than the earlier trailer the CW put out, but that version’s no longer available so it’s hard to say for sure. The first two episodes are definitely represented here; “Demon Girl” sees Officers Minogue Mike Minogue and O’Leary Karen O’Leary never deviating from droll matter-of-factness, even when they’re being showered by gallons of vomit by a possessed teen—“I think she’s quite unwell,” one of the cops observes, massively understating the obvious. With the paranormal unit established in the premiere episode, “Cop Circles” sees the partners heading to the countryside to see why cows are being stranded in trees, and end up blundering their way into discovering extraterrestrial activity. Three six-episode seasons of Wellington Paranormal have aired in New Zealand so far—plus a Christmas special and a series of PSAs about safe driving and covid- precautions—so hopefully the CW will see fit to air the entire batch. Future season one episodes see Officers Minogue and O’Leary encountering werewolves, evil clowns, zombies, and at least one familiar vampire face from the What We Do in the Shadows movie. Wellington Paranormal also stars Maaka Pohatu as Senior Sergeant Maaka, who’s secretly been keeping tabs on the city’s most “unusual” cases, and of course an unseen camera crew standing by to capture every wryly hilarious fourth wall-breaking moment. New episodes are available to stream for free Monday nights on the CW—have you checked out the show yet, and if so, what did you think?
There was never anything normal about Paranormal Activity. But did you know that Steven Spielberg was convinced his copy of the movie was haunted? We’re taking a look back at how this low-budget flick became the standard when it comes to found-footage-style terror. In , The Los Angeles Times reported something rather alarming. Spielberg had reportedly taken a DVD of Paranormal Activity to his estate in Pacific Palisades in . DreamWorks was mulling over a decision on whether or not to get involved with the $, independent film. He watched it, and not long afterward, his bedroom door locked. No big deal, except that it was empty, and it locked from the inside. According to The L.A. Times, Spielberg, unreasonably spooked, hired a locksmith and removed the disc from his home, delivering it back to DreamWorks in a garbage bag of all things. He didn’t dispose of it altogether because, well, he liked the movie. Oren Peli had crafted a nicely terrifying little movie about what happens when a demonic possession occurs in the mundane normalcy of a suburban cookie-cutter home. It managed to achieve something tricky that The Blair Witch Project had mastered previously–terrify audiences without gore. And that’s where the lore surrounding this shoestring-budget movie begins. It ends, of course, with the movie becoming a surprise hit and spawning a franchise, along with a glut of found-footage copycats. Ultimately, Dreamworks was acquired by Paramount, and Paramount released the film to critical acclaim and cult adoration. The compelling story about Spielberg didn’t exactly hurt the movie; some speculated that it was part of a marketing campaign meant to drum up publicity with high profile, realistic stories like Spielberg’s. Found-footage movies rely on a sense of realism to fuel the fear, and Spielberg’s incident fit the bill perfectly. He genuinely liked the movie, and somebody with Spielberg’s clout merely liking a movie is an endorsement in itself. Paranormal Activity went gangbusters, spawning a gnarly oversupply of sequels. Following the release of the original, there were five—count em, five—sequels between and . Yes, that’s one per year. Paranormal Activity is reportedly in development with a projected release of . Chalk it up to the simple and inexpensive nature of making found-footage movies, or perhaps the ease with which production companies bite off earlier successes. In any case, Spielberg’s moment of terror turned out to be contagious. Remember the original Blair Witch website? It wasn’t merely interesting. It was completely believable. The Blair Witch Project’s web campaign tapped into the emerging dark side of the internet, using realistic lore to capture gullible consumers into believing it was authentic and spreading it to viral success. It was real, they insisted! The found footage was genuine and The Blair Witch existed; why would this shocking ‘snuff documentary’ have been produced otherwise? Nearly overnight, The Blair Witch Project went from being a wickedly stealthy little campaign into a full-blown modern urban legend. Similarly, Paranormal Activity’s producers let the Spielberg story take on a life of its own. Like the best rumors, this one was rooted in truth; a story had appeared in the journalistic behemoth The Los Angeles Times. Spielberg hadn’t refuted it–at least not to anyone’s knowledge–and before anyone knew it, Paranormal Activity was its own complete phenomenon. Who could blame anyone for sharing and re-sharing this deliciously creepy story? Nobody, that’s who. We all need a good, creepy, escape from time to time. Thanks in part to Spielberg’s paranoia, we now enjoy at least one more.
SYFY PHOTO Tim Rozon stars as a special kind of real estate agent in charge of cleansing and selling haunted houses in Syfy s SurrealEstate, premiering p.m. July . In Syfy’s new series “SurrealEstate,” Tim Rozon is a real estate agent from hell — or rather his haunted properties are. But even with demons in the attic and a hellhound in the basement, don’t think of this as a horror show. “It never felt like a horror genre show – not in the writing, not in the way we shot it, not in the performances and not for the other actors,” said Rozon “Schitt’s Creek,” “Wynonna Earp”, who plays Luke Roman, a real estate agent who specializes in paranormally plagued listings. “To be honest, the horror aspect is something that’s kind of a bonus.” The series, premiering p.m. July , asks an intriguing question – what happens to haunted houses after ghosts, ghouls and goblins scare away the owners? Just like any house, someone’s going to buy them unless they are sucked into the ground like the house at the end of “Poltergeist”. That’s where Luke comes in. With a team of unorthodox experts at The Roman Agency, he works to identify the pesky parasite, understand its origins and then expunge it from the property to give both buyer and seller some peace of mind. On the payroll, he’s got a priest turned paranormal researcher Adam Korson, a spiritual tech guru Maurice Dean Wint and an infallible office assistant Savannah Basley. New to the team is Susan Ireland, a warm, driven agent with a talent for more traditional closings, played by Rozon’s former “Schitt’s Creek” co-star Sarah Levy. All but pushed off the deep end into the Roman Agency’s unusual client base, Susan is skeptical but sturdy, proving she can keep her head above the holy water a lot better than they expected. For the actors, the notion of diving into a show of demons and – perhaps even scarier – the housing market was all about balance. “Horror can bring out the best and worst, and I think it can bring out the comedy,” Levy said. “That’s the thing I didn’t realize. It can bring out comedy in the least expected places and moments. Anytime we feel afraid – and Tim has said this before – you’ve gotta crack a joke to defuse the moment a little bit. … The horror aspect is there for sure, but the comedy aspect kind of balances it out in a fun, nice way.” Meanwhile, The Roman Agency finds its clients in situations that are no laughing matter most of the time, when the evil of the week has invaded perhaps their most intimate space possible — their home. It’s one of “SurrealEstate’s” many nods to family, which Rozon said is the warm center of a show wrapped in scares. “Family is what you make of it and this is a bunch of people who have found their family in this group,” he said. “That’s the meat and potatoes of the show, the heart of it is this group. The horror actually adds a nice spice to it that I don’t think any other show really has.” Wilmington StarNews: Former ‘Schitt’s Creek’ co-stars find the humor in Syfy’s new paranormal series ‘SurrealEstate’
If you’ll be driving by The Citadel mall this weekend, prepare for something to grab your attention. A flashy and grand circus show will take over the Colorado Springs mall’s parking lot for four days. It’s a head-turning sight for anyone passing the big red and black tent with skeletons hanging over it and the strobe lights and the lit-up letters spelling out the name of the show: Paranormal Cirque. That was the goal for founder Manuel Rebecchi, a native of Milan, Italy, who spent his early years traveling around Europe with his late aunt, Moira Orfei, the creator of the largest and most famous circus in Europe: “The Moira Orfei Circus.” In , Rebecchi began putting on his events. He started with a bang by commissioning Ferrari, the luxury sports car company, to build a custom circus tent for his first Cirque Italia event. He thought it would be a one and done. For his next trick, Rebecchi ventured into new territory with Paranormal Cirque. Soon after opening in , the Halloween- and horror-themed circus and magic show was in high demand, touring nearly months out of the year and selling out in most cities. “It’s been a constant overwhelming success,” says the show’s spokesperson, Sarah Kessler. “It shows that there’s always going to be that big population of people that love Halloween and love goth and love magic and illusion.” This show consists of traditional circus acts, such as aerialists, balancing acts, crossbow, hair hangs, contortion and a wheel of death, dressed up with doomsday-like makeup and costumes. There’s also dancing and comedy skits, as well as magic and illusion elements. A narrator ties it all together, with the show’s loose storyline about “the fall of humankind due to his own greed and ego,” reads a press release. “The idea is it’s something that’s outside the box and pushes the limits,” Kessler said. “But if you took all the makeup away, it’s mostly like a traditional circus.” As with all of other Cirque Italia productions, Paranormal Cirque is animal- free and focuses, instead, on “testing the strength and sheer will of the human form.” Most of the show’s or so performers, who also pull double duty as members of the crew, come from a multigenerational circus family. Because of some of the show’s scenes, it has an “R” rating, meaning attendance is restricted to people and older. People ages to may attend if accompanied by a guardian who is or older. “The show itself isn’t scary,” says Kessler, but there is some adult language and sexual content. Plus, there’s a haunted house-style pre-show that she tells people to skip if they scare easily. Outside the tent are decorations such as custom-designed hearses and an ambulance converted into a hotdog cart. “It draws interest no matter no matter where it is,” Kessler said. “There’s a spectacle to it.” And for a good reason, as the circus — especially this version — only comes to town so often. “It’s an escape for people,” she said. “You can see an almost childlike sparkle in their eyes.”
