Poltergeists: evil among us?

Free Lunchtime lecture by Chris Jensen Romer. Part of the Original London Ghost Festival week 2010.


One common explanation of paranormal activity is the notorious Poltergeist. The very name conjures images of terrifying events, and Hollywood horror films. Yet in some ways the reality is more frightening and disturbing than the media portrayal. Poltergeists may lurk much closer to home than you imagine. What is a poltergeist: A disturbed spirit, unconscious psychic energy or something far more sinister? In this talk we hear the latest thinking behind these strange yet fascinating cases and survey some of the poltergeists of London, before reaching a conclusion that may surprise (and frighten!) you….

Chris "CJ" Jensen Romer has been involved in psychic research for over twenty years, is a member of Society of Psychical Research and has investigated a number of purported poltergeist cases first hand. He has worked on a number of paranormal TV shows, including spells as a researcher for both Most Haunted and Most Haunted Live. He maintains "Polterwotsit", an internet blog dedicated to coverage poltergeist cases at http://polterwotsit.wordpress.com The London Ghost Festival and City of London Libraries are grateful to Chris for giving his time for free.
