EVENT HIGHLIGHT - October 17th, 2015.
Thirty years after the resolution of the infamous C2D1 Haunting, five former Erie Hall Students came together to recall the events of 1985. This unprecedented gathering - perhaps the largest of it's kind for an extreme haunting - also included Charlie Manning, the priest who blessed the C2D1 dorm room back in March of 1985. The panel was hosted by award-winning director Mara Katria, and featured (left to right): Paul Davie, Chris Di Cesare, Linda Kalasinki, Craig Norris and J. Jeff Ungar.

EVENT HIGHLIGHT - June 3rd, 2015.
Chris DiCesare was a normal college student in the 1980s until a series of events began to unfold in his dorm room, C2D1 Erie Hall at SUNY Geneseo in New York state, which came to be known as the C2D1 Haunting. In the show's latter half, he related the strange events that he and his college mates experienced as they interacted with a spirit they identified as "Tommy" beginning in February 1985. Initially, he heard whispering voices, even as he listened to music over headphones. Then, he actually saw a specter, a young man around 15 or 20, who would have passed for a normal human, if he hadn't seen his legs going through the stereo.
While showering one day, he saw a silhouette on the bathroom wall, and was then attacked, with three visible scratches appearing from his neck to waist. Chris and his roommate decided to call in local clergy and wanted to present evidence of the ghost-- what came out was an odd skeletal image. Other people in the dorm also experienced or heard the apparition, and one student who reportedly heard the apparition call out Chris' name, ended up committing suicide. DiCesare said an audio recording was made in his room of a strange sounding voice saying "help me." Shortly before he moved out of the dorm, he interacted with the spirit, asking it to leave. The C2D1 events were depicted as part of the SyFy series, 'School Spirits,' in the episode Dorm Room Nightmare.
