Real Life Ghostbuster Robert Bess and His Parabot Want You to Experience The Fourth Encounter
It started with an e-mail that hit our desk today from a man named Robert Bess. It simply read, "You guys don't need horror ideas, but what about someone in real life who actually catches these things?" Our initial reaction was, "What things has this dude caught?" Like moths to flames (and for shits and giggles), we responded and got much more than we bargained for.
According to Bess, while he was in college studying to be an engineer, he had a near death experience with a demonic spirit which changed the course of his life. In 2009 Bess became the first person in the world to create a scientific device known as the Parabot, which he claims attracts and contains the electromagnetic energy caused by spirits.
Below you'll find several videos about Robert and his Parabot and also a couple with the device "supposedly" in action. Take a look at them now.
Weird? Interesting? Bullshit? All of the above? Yep. We think so. To help you decide what is and isn't real, we came across an episode of the DC favorite Travel Channel show "Ghost Adventures" in which Robert and his Parabot were guest starring during a live seven-hour lockdown at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. The results were not only controversial but extremely laughable. Check out the clip below.
After that occurrence Robert's credibility waned, and he is now trying to get back on the supernatural horse with a movie he wants to call The Fourth Encounter. To stir up interest in the possible flick (which is why we initially contacted us in the first place), Robert supplied us with the following new video of him and the Parabot in action. Check out the ... ummm ... amazing video below. Something tells us we won't be seeing this production any time soon, but if we were Robert we'd TOTALLY contact The Asylum film studio as they seem like a perfect match! Tell us what you think in the comments section below once you stop scratching your head in disbelief.
