'Ghost Adventures' Star

I Bought $35,000 Demon House

Possible 'Hell Portal'

1/31/2014 6:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Ghost Adventures" host Zak Bagans has taken on his most terrifying project yet -- he just bought a house in Indiana ... believed to be the site of one of the most terrifying demonic possessions ever ... a rumored "portal to hell."

The house rose to fame in 2012 ... after a mother who lived there reported her 12-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son had been possessed.  Shockingly, there are even docs from child protective services that back up her claims.

Among the many scary incidents ...  the mother says she witnessed her daughter levitating above her bed.

She also said she saw her son walking on their ceiling ... an account corroborated by several other witnesses. The mother did everything she could to de-demonize the house -- including building an altar and hiring an exorcist -- but nothing worked and she eventually moved.

Zak tells us, he caught wind of the horrifying tale and made an offer to purchase the home for $35,000 -- the owner was all too willing to sell.

The photo shown above is an actual police photo of the house ... and it's hard to miss what looks like an apparition in the window.

Zak says he's going to live there and document his experience -- "If it's true this home is a portal to hell, then I want to go there and see what happens."

Balls of steel.

Check out the CPS report (below) ... detailing the family's frightening claims.

I have three buddies that do real paranormal investigation, they've been there ,and ,declared it a hoax. But ,ironically I just got in from helping them on one their "hunts". We found no ghosts......but, we were standing on the backyard terrace of this house preparing to leave, we heard a sonic boom followed by the sound of trumpets....scary as f..k,we didn't expect that!!

In the original story, it was said the demons were attached to the woman, not the house... But, I guess good luck to him...

Some things are not meant to be discovered. If there is a portal and you are volunteering yourself, what makes you so sure you'll live to tell your story?!

If zak starts to renovate (and he will, look at that place ,who can live in that ) he might stir up some act activity .

regardless of what you think of ghosts or his show, Zak did a really nice thing for that woman. she likely would not have been able to sell that home and he paid top dollar for it. I know it sounds low, but homes in Gary sell for very little.

Oh come on, you have 4 to 6 different people in a room and a boy grins demonically and walks backward up a wall and NOT ONE person snaps a pic with their phone?
That is harder to believe than the story itself. Also, google
this Zac guy and there is a story aabout him buying the house and a picture, in that picture, the same exact figure in the window in this picture is in every single windo and on the side of the house. More than fishy.

Has anyone else noticed the ghost in the window?

It makes sense for him to move there considering that "white men" are the devil.
