Ed's thoughts

True Haunting

Posted by Ed Becker on April 8, 2012 at 10:10 PM

Thanks to my readers worldwide, the story this book has brought much attention. So maybe there will be a complete film story one day?? Personally I see the problem that most all entertainment people expect all things paranormal to be horrific. All of us in the paranormal community know differently. A haunting typically begins subtly, and builds taking its toll on your emotions and energies. No demonic beings chasing you around, nor pig heads flying through the air, or blood flowing down the walls. Just the inexplicable occurrences that instill a fear of what is invisible most times, has an energy that cannotbe measured, and an unpredictability that can have you walking on egg shells.Drained of energy from loss of sleep, always vigilant of your surroundings, you begin questioning your sanity. If a movie is ever done, I hope they don't add dancing skeletons. Actually, had I seen dancing skeletons, we would have quickly been sleeping in the car!

My husband and I just read "True Haunting" and was absolutely horrified. What you, your wife, and the tenants of the building went through - well, I can't even imagine. I thank God that I have not experienced anything like that, nor do I ever want to. I'm glad to hear that the story was made into a movie, though. We both are looking forward to seeing it. Thank you for sharing such a powerful and moving story; I look forward to reading your other books.

P.S. : How is your sister - does she keep in touch with you?

I keep getting the name of this show Paranormal Witness and then I think maybe it's the other one My Ghost Story. Not sure why. Both my mom and I have been reading your book. We found it very interesting. Wou;d love to read a sequel. wondering what went on with the house later. It must have been something very frightening. I have so many questions. Will you ever be on a radio show or podcast. Darkness Radio is prettty good show. Respectful and interesting. All the best to you and yours.

hey Ed! just watched your story on paranormal witness and me and my husband were actually wondering if you knew what ever became of the house after you gave it away? the things you guys went through are absolutely horrific and amazing at the same time. I must tell you that you are much braver than i would ever have been. At the first sign of anything I would have been running screaming through the streets haha. hope all is well.

I am also curious if the house is still standing.. and I hope you reconnect with your sister someday. I am going off what was just portrayed through Paranormal Witness.. I cannot find anything online about the Verder family. I got the kindle version of your book, and It really was a great book.

Hi Mr. Becker, I just saw your story on Paranormal Wittness and was spell bound! What a nightmare that must have been! I am so curious about whatever became of the house! Is it still standing? Did the next owner experience any of the same hauntings? Would absolutely love a follow up if you have any information on it.

Hi Ed,

I just watched the PW show and came across your site as I tried to dig up some more information about your experiences.

What I have read here has answered most of my questions...but I still had one regarding the 'Televised Exorcism' that occurred.

I understand most of the footage was lost/buried...but if (as described in the show) there was a 'gust of wind' with the windows shut, unexplained noises and birds by the hundreds/thousands outside the window during filming, was this captured on the original NBC footage/film as it happened? Surely this would have been very compelling video if so.

Many thanks for your time...

James

Hello Ed

Just watched the documentary about what happened to you and your family and I must say for you guys to come out of what happened and still be as you are is incredible. I agree by watching what you all went through that people that go looking for what you endured is very dangerous but at the same time fascinating as I admit myself I am a fan of the unknown and what goes beyond our normal science.

I hope you and your family are well and would like to speak to you more if it would not be a hassle.

Also is your Sister April ok?

Kind regards

Mr. Becker,
I finished reading your book a few months ago and was glued to my kindle until I finished. I actually laid with my 2 yr old waiting for him to fall asleep and while reading often had to stop and look around the dark room because reading your story gave me the chills! I was wondering of you have ever revisited the house in the last couple of years and if so did you still feel the same about it. I have done my internet research snooping and think I know the address, would you be able to confirm?
As a child I was always afraid on the unexplained and during grade school we moved to an apt in Los Angeles where I experienced a few things. The most terrifying thing was having my bed move. Not shake like in movies but literally just like someone pushed my bed. I remembered it was a metal twin bed and there was no carpet so I actually heard the metal scrape the floor of course I remember crying out to my mom and her telling me it might have been a mouse. Ha, I'd like to see the mouse that moved my twin bed while I laid on it!!! I experienced a few other things that I think back to know and wonder how I didn't have some sort of heart attack. I guess kids are resilient. I looke forward to your next book!!! Thank you for keeping it honest!!!
