In a new Hulu series, five fabulous ghost hunters are truly 'Living for the Dead'
Thanks to reality shows like the long-running “Ghost Hunters” series, which aired its 16th season this year, paranormal work has had a particularly heteronormative image for the last few decades. But the new, cheekily named Hulu series “Living for the Dead” — which is narrated and executive produced by Kristen Stewart — is serving up supernatural storytelling with a different kind of hair-raising look, courtesy of its five fabulous ghost-hunting stars.
Emmy-winning “Queer Eye” producer Rob Eric, who serves as an executive producer on “Living for the Dead,” recalled initially being approached about the idea.
“A call was made to us that said Kristen Stewart wanted to talk about a show idea, and she got on and said, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun if we could do something different, like gay ghost hunters?’ And we were like, ‘Gay ‘Scooby-Doo’?! We’re in,’” Eric said during a junket with the cast, ahead of the full season release Wednesday.
In the series, the queer ghost hunters take a road trip across the country, hitting the scenic highways of the American Southwest and weaving their way up to the Great Lakes region, to make overnight visits at eight allegedly haunted locations. Armed with an array of skills — including psychic sense, witchy ways and equipment expertise — the paranormal professionals give the spaces a kind of spiritual glow up by communing with the ghosts that haunt their dwellings and the living that inhabit them.
Some of the locations, like a sprawling former sanatorium in Kentucky called Waverly Hills and the Lemp Mansion in St. Louis, are apparently well known in the paranormal community. But others, like a modern Arizona mansion with a cagey young owner and a Las Vegas strip club overseen by a protective matriarch, are more off the ghost-hunting grid. But they’re all, according to the show’s stars, verifiably infested with otherworldly beings.
“Honey, there were no duds! They made sure where they sent us was haunted as can be,” Logan Taylor, the show’s resident psychic, said. “I remember, by the very end of it, I would go to bed at night just completely used to hearing screaming — blood-curdling screaming as I’m trying to sleep.”
Alex LeMay, the group’s tech guru, agreed.
“They were very, very, very haunted and very active, and it never stopped, even when the cameras weren’t rolling,” LeMay said, citing eerie disturbances like things being thrown in the middle of the night. “I think it would turn any skeptic into a believer, just staying one night at some of the places we investigated.”
Like the rest of the group — which is rounded out by Juju Bae, a self-described witch, and Ken Boggle, a tarot card specialist — researcher Roz Hernandez has worked in the paranormal field for years. But she said that staying put in the locations overnight proved challenging between all the foot tickling and other invasive activity going on in the wee hours.
“The ghosts did not clock out because the cameras weren’t rolling. They were there to play with our toes or do whatever they wanted to do, and I hated it,” she said in response to her castmates teasing her about trying to sneak away to hotels in the middle of the night.
She said she’s been watching ghost-hunting shows for years and has “given them a lot of side-eye,” but now she can better relate to how unnerving visiting a series of well-researched, spooky spaces can be.
“I’ve been, like, ‘Come on, you mean to tell me, every place you go, there’s stuff happening?’ But it is sort of like a casting process. We have to make sure that these are places that truly are in need of an investigation, and they did not disappoint — any of them,” she said.
Though the group reportedly had a bevy of unsettling supernatural encounters during filming, their run-ins with the living residents of the haunted locations were much more to their liking. In several episodes, the “ghost hunties” — to borrow the series’ promo language — even take a break from engaging with spirits to have cocktails and a spooky kiki with the locals. During these rendezvous, the experts didn’t encounter much skepticism from their new friends, especially given that most of them had ghost stories of their own. But the out-of-towners were aware of not fitting the typical ghost-hunting mold.
“Listen, some of us prance into town with 6-inch heels on,” Hernandez said. “So you might be like, ‘What are these people going to achieve here?’ But we actually know what we’re doing, as much as you can when you’re talking about things that are unknown.”
To find the right people to represent the LGBTQ contingent of ghost hunters — which is smaller than one might think, according to Hernandez — the show’s producers used a casting approach they developed for the original “Queer Eye,” which premiered in 2003. Essentially, after whittling down thousands of applications to a smaller collection of finalists, they brought the top contenders to Los Angeles to watch how they interacted with each other off-camera and to test out their skills.
“One of the most important things about casting is to not always be in the casting, but to rather step back a little bit from it and see who’s talking to each other when they’re not on camera — who’s vibing,” Eric said.
Once the in-person casting began, the producer added, he and the rest of the team could see their group of stars beginning to form, and then, during one-on-ones when the interviewees were asked to show off their ghost-hunting talents, their final five pulled away from the pack. While Bae was eliciting gasps from one part of the room, Boggle gave Eric a “terrifyingly accurate” tarot card reading. And in a more secluded space, Taylor channeled the deceased father of Eric’s co-producer, “Queer Eye” creator David Collins, recalling a private moment between father and son.
“David came out of a room crying — couldn’t stop crying, and we’re like, ‘Yeah, this is the team. We did it,’” Eric said. “You can see it. They come together so beautifully in the show. It just feels like they’ve known each other forever, and, who knows, maybe in past lives, they did.”
Without the benefit of a live demonstration, some viewers may have a harder time believing in the experts’ skills — and buying into the series as a whole, which takes its supernatural encounters very seriously. Though, Eric and his co-producers attempt to bridge that gap by showing the cast performing the practical aspects of ghost hunting, much like the stars of “Queer Eye” tackle the various elements of a makeover.
“If we just had you assume that this is what Juju does to get rid of spirits, and we don’t tell you what that is, or what Ken does to contact spirits, you wouldn’t believe them. If you didn’t see JVN cutting hair, and we just showed you the final product, you’d be, like, ‘Well, wait a minute, who cut the hair?’” Eric said, referring to “Queer Eye” grooming expert Jonathan Van Ness.
Eric acknowledged that a reality series about “the woo woo,” as Bae and some of the cast amiably described paranormal work, may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But he also said that seeing people commune with ghosts isn’t entirely the point. Instead, like their “Queer Eye” counterparts, it’s witnessing the experts’ particular brand of empathy — not to mention their obvious fabulousness.
“The paranormal can be very divisive in terms of, ‘Oh, I don’t watch that, because it’s paranormal,’ or, ‘I watch it because it is paranormal.’ This show you should watch because the characters are so interesting,” Eric said.

The Spookiest Places In Europe For Ghost Hunters
Is the old world home to eternal beings.
By Robert Schrader | Published on January 11, 2024
Terror In London: The Most Haunted Place In The World
L ondon is a top contender for the most haunted place in the world — this is true even if you've never been there. I mean, is there a more terrifying tale than the one of Jack the Ripper? The world's first high-profile serial killer is still unidentified, which has led some to wonder whether he was flesh-and-blood at all. If your travels do take you to London, make sure to visit the Jack the Ripper Museum, which tells the mysterious story of these unsolved murders via recreated crime scenes. Or, book a Jack the Ripper walking tour and hit the must-see spots around the city while a guide regales the infamous tales.
A trip to The Ten Bells, an iconic pub in the city's Shoreditch area, adds to the intrigue. In addition to being the last place that Mary Kelly (Jack the Ripper's final victim) was seen alive in 1888, this "haunted" watering hole has been the scene of many ghost sightings. It could be that the apparition — who's said to sport typical Victorian attire like a top hat and waistcoat — has a connection to Jack the Ripper, for whom the bar was briefly named between 1976 and 1988.
Another allegedly ghoul-ridden London locale is Highgate Cemetery, the most famous of the so-called "Magnificent Cemeteries" in and around the British capital. Opened in 1839, and with more than 170,000 souls interred in 53,000 graves, it's become a hub for those on the hunt for ghosts, vampires and all sorts of other paranormal activity. While I can't guarantee what sorts of terror await you there, I can say that the size and scope alone — it's like a city for the dead — will leave you feeling unsettled.
If you're looking for a fright on your London vacation , I'd say that the London Dungeon in South Bank is one of the spookiest places in Europe. It probably isn't haunted by ghosts of yore, having only been opened in 1974, but your experience there is bound to give you nightmares. From distant historical chapters like the Norman Conquest and the Black Death to more recent ones like Sweeney Todd — and, yes, Jack the Ripper — interactive, performative exhibitions illustrate the torture and terror that has defined so many chapters of London's macabre history. If you're a fan of gallows humor, the London Dungeon is a must-stop when you cruise to Europe.
Trace Dracula's Footsteps Through Transylvania
When you cruise to Europe to discover the scariest places to visit, head to Heathrow Airport and get on a plane to Otopeni, Romania's main international gateway. I recommend spending a day or so diving into the vampire lore around Bucharest, the country's underrated capital city. Then, hop on a train to Brasov. This is the hub of Transylvania and the best place to begin tracing the world-famous folklore that had its genesis here.
I'm speaking, of course, about the legend of Dracula, a quasi-historical figure who is tied to Bran Castle, which is about 20 minutes from Brasov's city center. While most Romanians I spoke with when I went there found foreign interest in the place funny — "I'm just here to sell garlic garlands," one told me, "and cheap plastic vampire fangs" — others were more reverent. Dracula might not have existed, but the historical figure that inspired his story definitely did.
Visiting The Creepiest Castles In Europe
Posthumously known as Vlad the Impaler (and sometimes even Vlad Dracula, which means "Son of the Dragon"), this 15th-century warlord may not have walked only at night or drank blood, but he was responsible for a lot of misery and death. Vlad's former home really lives up to its reputation as one of the creepiest castles in Europe when you visit at night. Explore the castle and meditate on the fact that more than 80,000 people died under Vlad's orders, sometimes by impalement (as his nickname suggests) but using a wide variety of other inhumane torture as well.
If you really want to lean into the legend of Dracula, and think you can handle fact and fiction blurring, I recommend visiting Brasov in autumn and walking its medieval streets at night. The combination of rustling leaves, chilly air and age-old architecture will give even the bravest goosebumps. You'll wonder whether you should've tied the string of garlic bulbs you bought earlier in the day around your neck, instead of leaving it in your hotel room!
Dublin: Bram Stoker And Beyond
Haunted Hotels In London
Just as there are haunted hotels in London, so too can you sleep in haunted habitations in the Irish capital. You can book a stay at the Shelbourne Hotel, located near St. Stephen's Green Park. Dozens of previous guests have reported feeling a supernatural presence, which some ghost hunters have postulated is an 18th-century cholera victim named Mary Masters. Various buildings in the city's Trinity College, whose library is a popular spot for modern Instagrammers, also boast a number of reported ghost sightings.
Not surprisingly, when you consider its otherworldly beauty, Dublin isn't the only place on the Emerald Isle where people have spotted beings that don't seem to be of this world. Leap Castle, located near the city of Limerick in west-central Ireland, is reputed to have several resident ghosts, including the souls of two tortured little girls, who may or may not have been murdered by the bloodthirsty "Red Lady" many also swear roams the halls. Various cemeteries along the River Shannon, which flows northeastward from Limerick to Lough (Lake) Allen, are also the sites of apparent hauntings.
Of course, when you take into account that Ireland has for centuries been a hub of faerie folklore, it could be that the culprits of these creepy chapters are more human than mystic. While it's difficult to do justice to the complexity of faerie mythology in a couple sentences, part of their intrigue is that many people don't see them as ghosts but rather magical (if small, and even sometimes imperceptible) human-like creatures forced into the shadows by the conquerors of ancient Ireland.
Dig Deeper Into The Catacombs Of Paris And Rome
A five-night France and Italy cruise takes you right to some of the most haunted places in the world. Some of my favorite places in Europe for ghost tours are old catacombs. Over 6 million dead are interred in the one beneath Paris alone. That's nearly three times the current population in the city proper! Skeptics may discount the drama that guides often infuse into tours, or the unsettling darkness and musty smell that pervades expeditions through the bone-filled tunnels, but this is one of the likeliest places in the world to be haunted.
Over the years, many people who've descended beneath the French capital have reported that the walls (or something within them) spoke to them; some have even suffered acute or chronic bouts of psychosis upon emerging from the labyrinth. Others weren't as lucky. While reports are vague, particularly from the first century-and-a-half after the caves opened in 1786, it's estimated that at least a few dozen unlucky individuals who wandered off inside the ghastly maze were never heard from again.
Rome's catacombs are older — some sectors date back to two centuries before Christ. Some of the most ancient Roman remains are those of early martyrs, many of whom met their end in the Colosseum as pre-Christian Romans cheered, in some cases, as said, martyrs were literally ripped apart.
Explore Underrated European Ghosting-Hunting Tours
Keeping in mind all the horror you find in England and Ireland, it isn't entirely shocking that Scotland also makes the list of scary places to visit in Europe. Greyfriars Kirkyard, a graveyard on the southern end of Edinburgh's old town, has a particularly spooky reputation, although it's not the only place in the Scottish capital you may feel a chill. I've had many an early morning and late night walk on the cobbles leading away from Edinburgh Castle when I heard clacking footsteps, only to turn around to see nothing but darkness and mist behind me!
While on a European vacation, head to Prague and take an excursion to Houska Castle. Although not as conspicuously creepy as some of the other edifices on this list, it's said to hide a horrifying secret. Namely, some people believe it was built over a gateway to hell and for the sole purpose of containing the evil that might otherwise escape out into our world. The owners of Houska Castle occasionally allow overnight stays as you visit this scary place, which is either a fun idea or a bone-chilling one.
Ghost hunters also occasionally pop up in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, Turkey , which might not immediately seem like a place to find wayward spirits. However, rumors have persisted over the years that the serpentine alleys of the market (which is one of the largest and oldest shopping venues in the world) hide portals to other dimensions, although it's unclear if ghosts lurk within them or if entering into one simply dooms you to never be seen again.
The reality, of course, is that no matter where in the "Old World" you travel, the sense of centuries (and in some cases, millennia) past hangs a heaviness in the air. We may never be able to prove definitively that the dead interred beneath European cities and countrysides still roam the surface in spirit form, but if there's one place in the world that could be haunted, Europe would be a top contender.

Top 10 Free Things to Do on Ovation of the Seas
Founded in 1718, New Orleans has long been regarded as one of the America’s oldest and most haunted cities. From her birth as a French Colony to her coronation as the Crowning Jewel of the South, New Orleans has suffered a long history of death and destruction that has threatened the soul of the city as well as her inhabitants. Floods, fires, rampant disease outbreaks, and cold- blooded murders have left a veil over the city, a veil that is often lifted when the souls of the dead return to remind the living of their tortured past.
As we approach the 300th birthday of New Orleans, one must wonder if the souls of her long forgotten deceased will soon return to participate in this gala. Will the dearly and not- so- dearly departed return once again to celebrate alongside the living? In 2010 the New Orleans Ghost Hunters sought out to answer this very question. After several years of research, they have their answer.
The New Orleans Ghost Hunters was formed through a collaboration of professional individuals who had spent their entire lives in the Crescent City. Paranormal experiences each had growing up left them with two burning questions: are ghost real and can we capture physical evidence of paranormal activity? Since their conception the New Orleans Ghost Hunters have investigated numerous residential and historical locations. Their experiences and expertise in the field has led to them hosting paranormal conventions and a local and now international talk radio show and appearing as guest speakers at Wizard Word and on T.V.
The New Orleans Ghost Hunters now reveal their long awaited answer in their “Ghosts of the French Quarter Tour”. Join your tour guide, co- founder, and lead investigator of the New Orleans Ghost Hunters, David Laville, as he takes you on a 90 minute walking tour through the most concentrated area of paranormal activity in the French Quarter. You will journey to the scenes of infamous duels, cold- blooded murders, yellow fever outbreaks, and lost loves. Learn about the city and why those who call her home refuse to leave her even after their earthly time is up. Hear the true stories from those who have actually investigated the locations and decide for yourself what secrets the city holds. Will this be the night the city allows you to see her past?
Tours start at the corner of Chartres Street & St. Peter Street in front of Cafe Pontalba near the corner of Jackson Square

The depiction of the paranormal has become prevalent in television and movies in recent years. This intriguing account by ghost hunters Lorri Sankowsky and Keri Young covers everything from high-tech gadgets, to inborn psychic abilities, while instructing readers on how to locate friendly or not so friendly apparitions. This account is equally informative for both the novice and the more experienced paranormal researcher. It offers visitors and residents a chance to see beyond the surface of various haunted locations throughout the area. Numerous sites of criminal activity, suicides, tragic fires and accidents, and disturbed remains abound in Indiana, providing hundreds of opportunities for ghost hunting.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS Lorri Sankowsky, along with friend Keri Young, are the former codirectors of The Indiana Ghost Trackers, a prominent paranormal investigation group in the Indianapolis area.
