Product Description

(DISC 1) 106 minutes + 40 mintues bonus features A mesmerizing CSI-caliber quest for proof of life after death. Four New York Times best-selling authors, three top science professors and three well- respected mediums make a leap into the unknown, investigating astonishing evidence in the case of apparent After Death Communication (ADC) from Sci-Fi luminary Forrest J Ackerman. We journey from spiritualists to skeptics, and from chem labs to ground-breaking computer software that may enable communication between the living and the deceased. (DISC 2) 101 minutes Spellbinding accounts of personal encounters with life afterdeath from archaeologists, physicists, a retired colonel, a librarian, clinical psychologist, sales executive, publisher and doctors and nurses who have worked with hundreds of dying patients. They have seen souls leaving the body at death, angelic beings, spirit entities, golden orbs, physical manifestations and more. Updates the continuing saga of the Forrest J Ackerman case.


"THE LIFE AFTER DEATH PROJECT is a great documentary on a timeless theme. It is a fascinating film and a true-life enigma that begins with one small, odd incident and mushrooms into a huge, scientific investigation of apparent messages from the 'Other Side.' It is also the first "paranormal bio-pic" - the Afterlife Story of Forrest J Ackerman, a founding father of Hollywood science-fiction who refuses to rest in peace..." --Pete Hammond - Movieline

Scientists, academics, skeptics have long cried out to metaphysical people, "Show us contact with spirits in the afterlife that can be repeated." Paul Davids "The Life After Death Project" shows it being performed in a university laboratory--and it is repeated. It blows away all those so-called ghost-busting hunts around haunted prisons, hotels and castles that never seem to come up with any full blown evidence on film.
The Life After Death Project should tickle the heart of movie-goers, skeptics and ardent believers alike. When he was alive Forrest J. Ackerman became a legend for his Famous Monsters magazine that followed luminaries such as Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, George Pal and that host of space movies such as The Day the Earth Stood Still, War of the Worlds, etc. Ackerman, a constant wit coined the phrase "Sci-Fi" and became known as "Mister Sci-fi." An artist once did a portrait of him with a clock behind that showed three minutes to twelve. That's the exact time Ackerman died on December 4th 2008.
If Ackerman became a Hollywood legend in his physical life he is sure starting to create legendary status as an active spirit. A self-proclaimed non-believer in the afterlife his spirit comes back with a light hearted and provable vengeance. When Paul Davids started the Project four years ago extraordinary events started happening while the camera was recording. A clock that had not worked for ten years sounded the hour. In a professional science lab a computer mysteriously switches itself on. A line on a business document is deliberately inked out in exactly the precise style used by Ackerman. A College of New Jersey specialist in forensic ink analysis says the ink is a mystery substance.

The Life After Death Project really piqued my interest due to its unusual approach. Does all psychic investigation have to take place in a moldering cemetery or a former battlefield, as most of the ghost hunting TV programs appear to suggest? I think not!

In fact, so many variables are present in a cemetery (temperature changes, barometric pressure changes, light changes, etc.) that I should think that data gathered there is of marginal scientific value in the end. That could be why the scientists are not putting much emphasis on cemeteries or battlefields, nor are they publishing many papers on cemetery investigations in peer-reviewed journals! But they are carrying out other sorts of studies, and some of the best research is being shown in The Life After Death Project. The documentary shows laboratory experiments in which communication with "hypothesized deceased co-investigators" is being conducted by U. of Arizona research psychologist Gary Schwartz.

Dr. Schwartz talks about how he measures minute amounts of light in boxes using silicon photomultiplier systems manufactured for the purpose of bioimagery in the medical field. Combining the silicon photomultiplier systems with light-tight chambers in a controlled laboratory setting, Dr. Schwartz measures light emissions in the tens of protons which are generated from an unknown source within the light-tight boxes when questions are asked of the "hypothesized deceased co-investigators" invited to join the experiments. Forrest J Ackerman, or, his spirit, if you will, was one of those invited. It is very interesting, even thrilling, to see this happening in real time!

In March 2009, Mr. Davids was one of the celebrity speakers at a tribute held in Hollywood to honor Mr. Ackerman, the focus of the documentary.

The Life After Death Project-What Comes After Death?
by Richard Matheson, Whitley Strieber and Dannion Brinkley
is a DVD set with a series of interviews of best-selling
authors, top science professors, well respected mediums
and actual witnesses who provide testimony on their research
and personal experiences with persons who have died.

The story begins with a brief synopsis of the life and
death of Forrest J. Ackerman who was a founding father
of Hollywood science-fiction. Apparently, he refuses to
die as evidenced by mysterious communications with the
living by computer, on ink blots and a home clock which
ceased to tick at the exact time of his death.
Scientists tested the ink blots under an electron microscope
and could not pinpoint the materials science of the ink

Dr.Gary Schwartz PhD explained that the subject of energy
and consciousness after death is a continuing research
puzzle similar to the behavior of stars which continue to
emanate light long after their light extinguishes.

The authors point to various objects of scientific interest.
For instance, a Zimbabwe mask gives off a huge electric
charge. In addition, some scientists believe that the soul
exists on a quantum physical level after death. There is
credible testimony from nurses that dying patients have
a white light emanating from the mouth. Others have seen
a golden orb rise from the body at the time of death. The
International Association For Near Death Studies found that
people who've had near death experiences develop tremendous
insight and unusual psychic abilities not present before.
