'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.

The figure in the window. Is caused by the tree in front if you look at how the trees' leaves sit you can see how it created the human like shape. Not to take away from the story but this is just a trick of the light.

So when something happens is he going to take off running. He makes me sick, he took advantage of a family who was in a bad situation. I am co-founder of a paranormal group, and our team believe in helping both vicims, and the spirits to move on. Did the idiot tell the family that there is a good chance the spirit (spirits) could go with the family. People think that moving will solve activity for their family, that is not always the case. I could not stand his show, and I hope the spirits give him EVERYTHING he deserve for being a selfish ass. I heard Casper was sighted on Cartoon Network, do you have his number?

Hmm... That's weird. Thought the Kardashians house was the portal to hell.

You should look up other more detailed reports on the story. A priest conducted several exorcisms on the mother before the demons were gone, moving away wasn't the reason the problems went away, TMZ is the only place I know of saying this, possibly to make the story into something it's not. After the woman had exorcisms performed, the demons also left the children and no exorcisms were performed on them. The police chief also corroborates the story and when he left her house one time, his driver car seat was jerking back and fourth on it's own and a mechanic said the seat as about to fall off. There was also a witness to the girl levitating, though TMZ didn't report it. Also, someone has lived in the house since and reported no problems, and the exorcism of also left out by TMZ. It might sound like a horror film, but The Exorcist was actually based on an account of a "real" possession of a boy in Maryland.

I believe Zak, Aaron and Nick, along with the rest of the crew really wan't to investigate this house. It's a very interesting story. Not to long ago they investigated the actual exorcist house. I believe this house is even more dangerous than that one. Although, I believe, unfortunately, for Zak, it's going to be a waste of 35K. I believe it's the Mother and Children that are possessed, haunted, etc. Not the house. Can't wait to see the episode though!

Well, Well, Well classic symptoms of something TRYING to take full possession, had it taken full possession it would have been a constant thing while within the home with all the religious items the mother had around. The sad thing is that while yes this is going on with the children CPS and others who have remove the children will claim that "after removal from mother/house children are normal and not having any issues". And that is how it goes if the house is blessed and the entities removed. It is obvious that if that is not some statue in the window there are other entities there.

Also, it being Indiana the house HAS to be tested for chemicals, paint etc....that could have been causing this. Talk to the owner and if possible others who have lived there. Get everything on tape video and voice, you never know what you'll get from others who have lived there. My guess is that someone pissed something off and opened a door, maybe not a portal. For this stuff to happen in front of police, CPS and doctors I'm wondering what they all said and how they tried to explain it, to rationalize it to themselves.

I'll give Zak a couple of things to try, Lemon to charge and black onyx to get out if you feel like running. I for one am looking forward to what he finds, if he can go in and agitate things enough he may just get what he's been after.

No, you didn't buy a "Hell portal" spent $35K to keep up the delusion that you're somehow relevant, and not a joke.

Has anyone said what happened to these kids after they moved? Would be interested in an update on them...did the demons follow them?
