  • Quotes

    • Dream House Opening Narration: Paranormal occurrences can range from the mundane to the fascinating to the outright dangerous. Well danger was the last thing on Blaine McAllister's mind, however, when he decided to build his dream house - a place to live out his vision of family contentment for years to come. But when the partially constructed dwelling started to behave as if it had a mind of its own, dreams quickly turned to horror.

    • Dream House Closing Narration: Was this simply an extremely active poltergeist haunt case, in which the McAllister's were being warned about dire events to come by future visions of themselves should they move into their dream house at 5214 Corvalis Crescent? Well this is one speculation investigators could formulate. When the OSIR made it clear that his family's safety might depend on it, Blaine McAllister willingly sold the house, and Blaine learned the sometimes elusive but ultimately obvious truth - that a dream home is not built of wood, brick or stone, but rather on the foundation of love, the contentment and happiness of one's family.

    • UFO Encounter Opening Narration: The SETI project - the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence - a worldwide network of radio dishes designed to receive any communication from outer space cultures, if they exist. Now despite the absence to date of any such messages and the repeated non-acknowledgment of actual contact by our North American military, we are continually confronted with reports of craft sightings, communications and abductions associated with a variety of sentient extra-terrestrial beings. When the OSIR was asked to investigate anomalous lights in Crescent County, Iowa, it found the bewildered residents' agitated state as challenging as the phenomenon it had set out to analyze.

    • UFO Encounter Closing Narration: Sometimes the most extraordinary occurrences have the simplest explanations. These teenagers weren't abducted by aliens in UFOs. No, this was human greed coupled with a blatant and criminal disregard for the health, welfare and stability of an honest, hardworking community. No ET or flying saucers here.
