Filmmaker Chad Calek now hunts ghosts for a living. But he wasn't initially obsessed with paranormal activity.
"I grew up in a family where [the paranormal] wasn't spoken about," he says in a recent phone interview with Scene. "I was a complete atheist. I had no belief in the other side."
In the film American Ghost Hunter, which he released last year on Hulu, he tells the story of how he started to experience paranormal activity after his family moved to a small town in Iowa.
