Paranormal Encyclopedia

Kevin Meares is an experienced demonologist and paranormal investigator. He’s been a popular speaker at JME for many years now.

He is the former host of the Lou Gentile Show and host of Paranormal Encyclopedia, speaker at numerous Jeff Mach Events including 2nd week Halloween in the Catskills 2016


100 Candles

100 candles are lit and 100 ghost stories are told. Accoring to the story when the last candle goes out a spirit will appear. Join us for our second attempt at this game to see just what happens (electronic lights will be used for safety and all stories will be limited to 2 minutes due to time constraints).

Paranormal Encyclopedia Live

Join us for a live taping of the youtube channel “Paranormal Encyclopedia”. Host Kevin Meares will be talking ghosts, angels, demons and weirder things as well as taking questions from the audience.

Speaking with the Dead

Electronic Voice Phenomenon is one of the most interesting forms of paranormal evidence. Simply put its efforts to contact spirits of the dead using an audio recorder. Join us for an experiment in EVP using one of the most effective recorders on the market.

Steampunk Haunted House
Halloween Forever!

A Kickstarter brought to you by Jeff Mach and JME.

This Kickstarter is starting soon! Check back for a link when it goes live!

Design by Egregore.

Yes, it’s true! We’re making a STEAMPUNK HAUNTED HOUSE!

The Kickstarter goes live on Monday, 8/21/2017; PLEASE DO RSVP for the Facebook event to keep up with the latest info.  Fittingly, it will happen in the darkness of the coming eclipse!

We’re so excited that we’ll say it again…

We’re Making A Steampunk Haunted House!

Please click here to view!

 There’s a lot of research and discussion below, so if you want the short version, here it is:

The world’s largest Steampunk event, the world’s largest dark/alternative social media site, and an incredible, family-owned, hand-built resort in the Catskills are teaming up to create a Steampunk Haunted House which will be available both to those who travel there, and internationally (through special backer-only shows and live walkthroughs!)  That Steampunk Haunted House is actually already 99% completed.  We want your help to push it over the top!

This is not exactly what Jeff of Jeff of Jeff Mach Events looks like, but it’s close.

Get ready! First 50 backers will be entered into a contest for having a drink with Jeff Mach and members of the Blackthorne and Haunt team!
