John Zaffis - 02.15.23
Episode 6 • 54m
John Zaffis has over forty-three years of experience studying and investigating the paranormal. He has had the opportunity to work for and with his aunt and uncle, Ed and Lorraine Warren. This sent John beyond looking for ghosts and hauntings and studying demonology under the Warrens. This led to John's involvement with cases of possession and exorcism, which gave him the opportunity to work with prominent exorcists in this field, including Roman Catholic priests, monks, Buddhists, rabbis, and ministers. John has assisted and worked with well-known exorcists Bishop Robert McKenna, Father Malachi Martin, and the Reverend Jun.
His research has taken him throughout the United States, Canada, England, and Scotland covering several thousands of cases. Through hands-on investigations with other investigators and clergy, he has obtained much knowledge and understanding of the paranormal. He is considered one of the foremost authorities in the field today.
John has a lot of first-hand paranormal experience, including experience with ghosts, poltergeists, and demonic and diabolical entities. He has also worked extensively with both spiritualists and psychics concerning how their knowledge is used for channeling, reincarnation (past-life regression), calling of the spirits for information, and how they use meditation to acquire the information which they are seeking. Because of his personal experiences with hauntings, ESP, near-death experiences, and other paranormal activities, he is convinced that such phenomena exist.
John has been featured in the SyFy television series Haunted Collector., Discovery Channel's documentaries A Haunting in Connecticut, and Little Lost Souls. John has also appeared on Unsolved Mysteries, Piers Morgan, and many other print and news media events. John also appears in Graveyards and In A Dark Place, both books written by Ed and Lorraine Warren. John's first book, Shadows of the Dark, co-written with Brian McIntyre, was released in September 2004. John has also appeared on Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. John is working on multiple follow-up books currently and is lecturing all over the United States at colleges and universities.
Over the years, John has collected hundreds of possessed items either given to or sent to him by people wishing to be rid of them. The John Zaffis Paranormal Museum opened in 2004 in order to display these items and continues to be open today. John wrote and starred in the documentary film Museum of the Paranormal, released in 2010, which gives the viewer a tour of his museum and the stories behind some of the objects. John was the starring role in the television series Haunted Collector which ran on SyFy from 2011 through 2013.
