The Creepers paranormal investigation team is made up of its two co-founders, and four others, who are based in Anchorage, Alaska. They agree to investigate the home of a woman in a small town where other weird events have occurred in the past. When they arrive, they are not prepared for what they encounter as the cameras keep catching paranormal activity beyond the scope of their experiences. Discovering that the house itself has no history of violence, nor the land itself, it is soon revealed that something deep and sinister is driving the haunting in this little chalet.

This script is based on true events that occurred in Connecticut. The original story revolved around a very little-known haunting between Burlington and Bristol where a lonely strip of highway through dense, hilly woods was known to harbor the appearance of spirits in Victorian-period clothing. I ran a group of ghosthunters named Creepy Connecticut back in the early 2000s that investigated the haunting. There wasn't much to go on but suffice it to say that we uncovered a huge treasure trove of information regarding a village named Polkville that appeared on maps before 1890, but then was mysteriously wiped from the subsequent maps. The story of why it disappeared was both creepy and appalling. Needless to say, the discovery of this information led to so much exposure of the story locally, that we were able to talk about it in local newspapers.
