Post Malone Haunted Curse Box To Be Opened on Halloween, If ...

10/31/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The haunted box that seemed to curse Post Malone is about to see the light of day on Halloween, 'cause its new owner wants to take a peek inside ... but on one condition.

"Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans tells TMZ he plans on opening the dybbuk box in his Haunted Museum Wednesday night, and he'll be doing it live on his show. As crazy as that sounds, it's even worse when you hear what Zak's been going through lately.

He tells us he's been getting ominous signs left and right leading up to the event that would make even Damien Thorn shake. It's pretty freaky sh*t -- stuff like dreams about people and animals being killed, calls from an unknown number telling him people will die ... and illness plaguing him for the past few weeks.

Remember ... this is the same box that supposedly put Post Malone's life in danger these past few months after he was in the same room with Zak, who ended up touching the thing. Post didn't touch it himself, but he did touch Zak's shoulder ... and Zak says that's enough to trigger a curse.

There is an upside, though, that hopefully keeps Zak from prying this devil box open. He tells us he'll only do it if he does NOT feel the same supernatural sensation he and Post felt in the room this summer. 

Considering this box has made people pass out on sight -- like this poor woman here -- we're guessing he'll feel something. BTW ... we're told this lady collapsed after coming into the same room with the box just a week after Post visited. She had to be taken to the ER.

Here's hoping that thing stays closed. But, if not ... good luck, Zak!!!

Charles Manson Bone Fragments Headed to Haunted Museum

10/14/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

This is creepy, even for Charles Manson -- the hospital gown the notorious murderer was wearing when he died, along with the coroner's toe tag and ALL of his bone fragments are headed to Zak Bagans' Haunted Museum ... a score he's calling the motherload of all motherloads.

The “Ghost Adventures” star tells TMZ ... Manson's grandson, Jason Freeman, gave Zak all of the items this week. They'll be front-and-center at his Vegas Haunted Museum ... which already features Manson's chompers and two paintings -- one that has his urine and another his ashes.

However, the latest cache takes the cake. Manson's hospital gown contains his body fluids ... same goes for the sheet that was draped over Manson's body while it lay in the morgue. 

But, that's not all ... how about the electrodes taken off Manson's body after he died, along with his hospital bracelet? Then there are bone fragments ... we're told Freeman scraped the bones from the incinerator after Manson's body was burnt to a crisp. Zak tells us, "This is probably the most powerful possession I now own at my museum."

As for why Freeman donated the items ... Zak tells us Freeman said holding on to them at his home triggered paranormal activity, like weird noises. And then, there's this ... Zak says Freeman told him one day while pulling into his driveway he got a call on his cell from his home phone.

No one was home.

Post Malone I'm a Natural-Born Ghost Hunter ... Just Ask Zak Bagans

1/9/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Post Malone should consider hopping on the Travel Channel's payroll as a ghost hunter if he gets tired of music, 'cause he's got the gift ... so says Zak Bagans.

The "Ghost Adventures" host tells TMZ ... Post recently joined him for an episode that's set to air later this week -- and he says the rapper's a natural at the craft. 

Zak says he asked Post to do the guest spot last year, and they taped it in November at a haunted slaughterhouse in Tuscon. He gives props to Post -- a longtime 'GA' fan -- for taking the assignment seriously, and handling it like a pro.

The only possible exception came when Post said he felt a pair of hands wrap around his neck ... and completely freaked.

Still, Zak says the rapper didn't back down and they're planning to have him back, because his episode, which airs Saturday, went so well.

'Ghost Adventures' Star I Bought $35,000 Demon House Possible 'Hell Portal'

1/31/2014 6:37 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"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.

'Ghost Adventures' Star Violent Human-Skull Ghost Is Haunting My House

10/31/2011 3:00 AM PDT

Never bring your work home with you -- especially if your job involves ghost-hunting and human skulls -- because you could end up with one pissed-off spirit haunting your house ... and pushing your friends down stairs.

"Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans tells TMZ, the supernatural encounters began after he found a human skull during an investigation last month at an old mining town hotel -- and genius actually decided to bring the remains home with him.

Zak -- who built a display for the skull in the basement of his Las Vegas home -- tells us, he noticed a huge surge in paranormal activity almost instantly ... an angry, demonic-type presence that had never been in his house before.

On one night, Zak tells us, he was woken up by a slight pressure on his ankles -- what felt like hands grabbing him -- and all of a sudden, the force yanked him several inches down in his bed.

Days later, Zak says he had a girl over at his house -- and out of nowhere, she spilled head over heels down his stairs ... insisting someone ... or something ... had pushed her.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg -- and Zak tells us, he's so terrified ... he hired a local bishop to perform an exorcism at his house in the next two weeks

Zak adds, "I love my job, but i want to feel safe in my house. I don't feel safe." Word to the wise -- don't jack human skulls and bring them into your house.

'Ghost' Investigators -- Cast Away from 'Idol' Mansion

4/5/2011 6:30 AM PDT
The "Ghost Adventures" crew will NOT be allowed to investigate the "American Idol" mansion for paranormal activity -- because TMZ has learned, the owner is worried about their negative energy.



As we previously reported, the ghost seekers contacted people at "Idol" to investigate the mansion ... after the contestants living there claimed the place was haunted -- but we're told, the owner of the house quickly shut down the whole operation.

Zak Bagans -- lead paranormal investigator -- tells us, the owner was worried about all the ghost-infestation publicity ... and wanted to ward off any more possibly negative attention.

Bottom line -- the "Ghost Adventures" crew won't be exorcising "Idol" demons any time soon. Boo-hoo.
