It's my honor to announce Bill and Kris Reap of R.E.A.P. Investigations as guest speakers for the PhantomFest! R.E.A.P. Investigations Mission to educate and make the public aware of the paranormal and to help those being affected by researching and investigating possible paranormal activity and the legends of haunting's on the east coast and across the country. Our primary focus is private residences and local business but sometimes we will investigate the "Historically Haunted" places for fun. Our primary goal is to debunk possible paranormal activity and then focus on what cannot be debunked. We believe in preserving history through the paranormal and help many locations raise money to preserve history thru the PARANORMAL.

speaker name
Whitney Benson

Northwest Phantom Hunters

Since she was 10 years old & watched her first horror movie she knew that she would work in the horror industry. Her love for the paranormal started when she was 15 when she & some friends started hanging out in the Stonewall Jackson Cemetery which is located in her hometown. Any free time she had was spent either immersing herself in horror or joining local paranormal investigations. About 6 years ago she decided to co direct/produce her first feature length film, which is in post-production. From there she began modeling exclusively for a horror/gore female dominated group called GOREgeous. Since then she has roles in a few other movies such as “Rednecks” which was just recently purchased by Troma, she just wrapped on a short film that will be a compilation of stories titled “Harvest of Horrors” produced by Brad Twigg, she’s been cast in another film of his called “Shriekshow” which begins filming soon, & she has also been cast in Flowers 2 which is produced by Phil Stephens. In 2017 she was approached by Chad Zumwalt of Northwest Phantom Hunters to join forces with him to take paranormal investigations to a whole new level. They are currently working on a new project that will give the paranormal community something they’ve never seen before!

Chad Zumwalt

Northwest Phantom Hunters

After an encounter with the supernatural at the age of 16, Chad Zumwalt began his incredible journey into the world of the paranormal. As lead investigator of NWPH (Northwest Phantom Hunters), he has dedicated his time to the more. . .unpleasant cases. . .the cases many would think were stories children would tell to scare each other at sleepovers. His unorthodox methods of taunting, teasing and harassing have been frowned upon by others, but he has never let that affect how he runs his investigations. His techniques have proven to be the best way to get a response from what always turns out to be malevolent entities. In 24 years of his search for truth, Chad has collected an enormous library of evidence to show the existence of evil. Knowledge really is power. He uses his experience and wisdom of transcendent beings to educate and help those that have called him. He exposes these beings for what they are and shows their true intentions of wanting nothing but to mentally, physically and spiritually destroy humans. That's what demons do. But hunting them down is what he does. Now with Whitney Causey Benson at his side, the demonic…the wicked…the things most humans fear, are about to have the tables turned. While most people are out chasing their dreams…they’re out chasing down nightmares.
