Watch Haunted Collector

Haunted Collector is a reality show that deals with the paranormal. John Zaffis is a demonologist, someone who studies items or issues that relate to demons, the paranormal or the occult. Together with his team, Zaffis travels the United States searching for items which might possibly have a paranormal connection.

John Zaffis and his team of paranormal investigators believe that certain objects, such as dolls, lamps, chairs, or other household items, can retain a paranormal aura and may even make paranormal activity, such as ghost or poltergeist activity, more likely to occur. This is usually because a spirit has formed an attachment to a certain object, or because an object was at one time around or used in paranormal or occult ceremonies.

When Zaffis and his team first enter a location that seems to be experiencing paranormal activity, they do an entire sweep of the house, looking for anything natural that could be causing some of the odd occurrences. They also fully question the owners of the property and carefully review any claims of paranormal activity. Members of the team then research the property and any items that they think may be related to the paranormal activity.

After completing their initial research, Zaffis and his team return to the property for a nighttime investigation. During this investigation, the team can get more of a feel for, and may even experience, some of the paranormal activity the client has claimed is happening. They can also look for certain objects that they believe may have a paranormal connection.

Once Zaffis and his team discover what they believe to be the paranormal object, the object is brought to an expert, usually someone familiar with the particular type of antique. Zaffis learns as much as he can about the object and how it could have picked up the paranormal resonance. Zaffis then returns to his client and asks if they would prefer that he remove the object. Collected objects are then stored in Zaffis' personal haunted collection.
