Minnesotan Dave Schrader Debuts Season Two Of Holzer Files
Season Two of the Holzer Files premieres today at 10 pm CST with a Special Halloween Week Launch on the Travel Channel.
The premise of the show is the group headed by paranormal investigator Dave Schrader, psychic medium Cindy Kaza, and equipment technician Shane Pittman revisits Hans Holzer’s paranormal cases. With the help of Holzer’s daughter, Alexandra Holzer, and researcher Gabe Roth, the team picks up where Holzer left off. Sometimes, Hans Holzer wasn't allowed to get into certain areas or properties, so some of the episodes will be a first.
What makes this show interesting is everyone brings something different to the table so that all sides are investigated and checked, meanwhile, you hear and see Holzer’s rediscovered archival files and cinematography. Dave Schrader says it's kind of checks and balances for the investigation.
I talked to Dave Schrader on the phone. He hosts popular radio programs like “Darkness Radio” and “Midnight in the Desert,” where he digs and presents strange, fringe, and bizarre realms of the paranormal. He is also the co-author of the book “The Other Side” and has been featured on several hit paranormal television series including “Ghost Adventures,” “Paranormal Challenge” and “Paranormal State.” Schrader prides himself on being one of the last people to interview Hans Holzer before his death and is determined to honor Holzer’s legendary legacy.
The show will feature 13 brand new one-hour episodes. Dave says they will go to a mansion in New York City, home to one of the world’s most infamous hauntings. then they go to a historic Maryland tavern that hid John Wilkes Booth after he shot Abraham Lincoln.
Dave said he has always been a Hans Holzer fan. That Holzer investigated places like the Amityville Horror house. He even influenced supernatural enthusiasts, more than 120 books, and even inspired Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis wrote“Ghostbusters.” and credit Holzer.
Dave explains that in each episode, the team goes through thousands of Holzer’s recently discovered documents, letters, photographs, and chilling audio and visual recordings dating back to the 1950s. Some of it they use as a guide, some you hear the voice of the man himself with findings or speculations.
The show debuts after Ghost Adventures 2 hour Halloween Special at 10 pm.
