This series should be interesting, if done right. I have little knowledge of any of Holzer's other cases (Amityville being the only one I know of).

Discovery-owned adventure network Travel Channel is to reopen the case files of America’s first ghost hunter as part of its resurrected ‘Ghostober’ Halloween event.

The Holzer Files (10 x 60 minutes) will set out to reveal the original documents, letters, photographs and audio and video recordings from the renowned 1950s studies of paranormal pioneer Dr. Hans Holzer and his four-decade exploration into hauntings like the Amityville Horror.

The Painless Entertainment-produced series will trace investigator Dave Schrader, psychic medium Cindy Kaza and equipment technician Shane Pittman as they pick up where Holzer left off in re-examining the hauntings that he dedicated his life to researching. The team will also be aided by Holzer’s daughter, Alexandra Holzer, and researcher Gabe Roth.

Using Holzer’s findings, the team track down recent developments from each haunting – including the Whaley House, the Morris-Jumel Mansion and the Peck House – and head back to the location to reinvestigate with a fresh perspective.

“The discovery of these case files is huge,” said Travel Channel GM Matthew Butler, in a statement. “We are excited to share Hans’ original findings with our viewers. His groundbreaking studies inspired generations and continue to influence pop culture to this day. With our stellar team on the ground to pursue further answers and carry the torch forward, this is history in the making.”

The Holzer Files debuts Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel.

An interesting live feed interview with Alexandra Holzer, part of the interview delving in to her family lineage which I found interesting:

TRAVEL CHANNEL REOPENS THE HAUNTED CASE FILES OF HANS HOLZER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN GROUNDBREAKING NEW SERIES ‘THE HOLZER FILES’ – PREMIERING THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT

In the series premiere, the team heads to historic Rye, New York, where over the span of 20 years, Hans Holzer made three visits to investigate the rampant paranormal activity at the Peck House. Residents have witnessed objects moving on their own, water manifesting on the ceiling without cause and the spirit of a young girl who tragically died in the home. Now, for the first time since Holzer’s last visit in 1985, paranormal investigator Dave Schrader, psychic medium Cindy Kaza and equipment technician Shane Pittman – armed with insight from researcher Gabe Roth and Alexandra Holzer – revisit the case, interviewing locals, historians and frightened witnesses in an attempt to capture evidence and find out if the restless spirits haunting the Peck House have actually moved on.

Upcoming episodes:

“The Morris-Jumel Mansion” – Premieres Thursday, October 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT

Perched atop one of Manhattan’s highest points, the Morris-Jumel Mansion is the oldest home in New York City and served as a headquarters for George Washington during the Revolutionary War. When Hans Holzer investigated it in 1964, terrified employees encountered apparitions of the home’s past occupants roaming the property and heard whispering in the empty halls. Though Holzer and psychic medium Ethel Meyers were able to communicate with Stephen Jumel and help his restless spirit move on, Jumel’s wife, Eliza, refused to leave and has remained a haunting presence in the home to this day. In recent years, a darker entity has emerged that has concerned employees reaching out for help. The team has reopened Holzer’s files for the first time since his visit over 50 years ago and will investigate the property to determine if this dark presence is indeed Eliza Jumel, or if something more menacing now resides in the historic home.

“The Whaley House” – Premieres Thursday, October 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT

After Hans Holzer was called in to investigate claims of paranormal activity at a historic San Diego home in 1961, it gained widespread notoriety as the most haunted house in America. Visitors to the Whaley House began reporting frightening encounters with the site’s past occupants – ghostly apparitions walking the halls, disembodied voices and a dark presence lurking in the home. Holzer investigated these assertions with psychic medium Sybil Leek, recording contact with both the Whaley family and a 19th century thief reportedly hanged on the site of the home before it was built. Yet Holzer always felt there was more to reveal – a darker, more powerful entity. Now, the team will conduct an all-new investigation in an attempt to capture more undeniable evidence of Holzer’s original findings. They soon find a dark presence may be dangerously influencing the living and trying to fulfill a centuries-old vendetta.

Additional locations and cases featured this season include the USS Constellation (Baltimore), the Barnstable House (Cape Cod, Massachusetts) the Lambert Castle (Paterson, New Jersey), Ocean Born Mary (New Hampshire/Rhode Island), the Howard-Dickinson House (Henderson, Texas) and more.

Love Holtzer, and his novel The Amityville Curse was also really great and underrated. The train sequence and what happened To the library was very creepy!

Featuring Holzer’s daughter, Alexandra Holzer, a renowned author, journalist, and Paranormal Investigator in her own right, (who resides in Chester, New York), Travel Channel will exclusively reopen Dr. Holzer’s most captivating case files – digging into thousands of documents, letters, photographs and chilling audio and visual recordings dating back to the 1950s.
Alexandra Holzer a renowned author? :lol:

I read her "book" when it first came out...laughed...rolled my eyes...laughed again...and then sent that rubbish to Sherb!

It was without a doubt the most poorly-written book that I have ever read.
