Your Host and Paranormal Investigator Britt Griffith
Britt’s lifelong hobbies is investigating claims of the paranormal, which led him to a friendship with Jason Hawes. In 2008 Jason reached out to Britt and asked if he would like to assist on an important case they had coming up. Britt said yes and now finds himself working all over the world in front of the camera investigating the paranormal. Britt makes appearances at multiple guest events all over the country, where he lectures and leads paranormal investigations. He has also worked on “Ghost Hunters,” “The Food Network Challenge,” “Run This Town,” “RWG,” and can be seen in Two De Force, Chillerama, and Azinda.

Mystic Maria Luisa
There have been many popular TV shows and films about psychics, mediums, clairvoyants, and people with similar gifts. On television there were the fictional “The Ghost Whisperer” and “Medium,” as well as other programs hosted by real-life “seers” (someone who predicts things that will happen in the future), such as John Edward in “Crossing Over” and James Van Praagh (who co­-executive produced “The Ghost Whisperer”) in a shortlived show of his own, “Beyond with James Van Praagh.” Maria Luisa Mispireta is one of the most important “seers” from Latin America, who moved from her native Peru to Los Angeles when she was 15 years old. In her professional practice she has an array of clients, from local residents to celebrities and law enforcement.

The Ancestral Anasazi Tribe
The Anasazi are an ancient people that lived thousands of years ago in the desert canyons in the southwest of North America. According to believers, the Anasazi either had seen aliens, were abducted by them, or were aliens themselves. According to their prophecy, the Blue Star Kachina will be visible to all, and the Day of Purification will be realized. It is said that if they are unable to find uncorrupted men and women, the earth will be completely destroyed, and none will be spared. However, if they are successful in bringing the symbols and finding those who still follow the true Hopi way of life, the world will be created anew, and all the faithful will be saved from destruction. Through the Facebook LIVE event, Maria Luisa and Britt Griffith will be trying to make contact with their spirits.

Get Stoned with this New Still from A Grim Becoming

Posted by Debi Moore on August 11, 2014

Get Stoned with this New Still from A Grim BecomingSo an archangel and a reaper - who happens to be an alien - meet. What would you think is the first thing they do? Check out this new still from Adam R. Steigert's horror comedy A Grim Becoming for the answer.

The newly released image from DefTone Pictures Studios Inc.’s A Grim Becoming features the archangel Michael (John Fleming) getting high with an alien Grim Reaper known only as “Luda,” played by Rich Winiatowski.

Who could blame them? In their line of work sometimes you just need to get stoned.

The film stars Brandyn T. Williams, Melyssa Jade, Devanny Pinn, Britt Griffith, Bill Oberst, Jr., Jessica Cameron, Melantha Blackthorne, Lynn Lowry, and Michael Sciabarrasi. It's directed by Adam R. Steigert.

A Grim Becoming is wrapping up digital post-production, and we should have release news soon so stay tuned!

Synopsis:
A Grim Becoming follows Raphael (Williams) , a young, bitter executive who is on the verge of losing a multimillion dollar architectural deal with a large company led by the awkward Stanford brothers. A sudden death in his family has Raphael leaving to go to his home town of Metzburgh to attend the funeral. Seeing this as his big chance to get ahead is Wayne, a jealous co-worker, who is in competition with Raphael. As Raphael returns to Metzburgh, he experiences a life changing event: witnessing a Grim Reaper taking a soul. This sighting results in Raphael becoming a Reaper and having to explore his own conscience and the lengths he will go to get his life back. But Death, who goes by the more human name of Magoo (Sciabarrasi), has other plans for the naive young executive.
