The first ghost Jason King ever saw was his brother’s. And when the spectre told Jason that he needed to find their estranged father, who disappeared during their childhood, his life was changed forever.
When documentarian Ben Lawrence reads an article about Jason, now a western Sydney security guard and part-time ghost hunter, he embarks on a seven year journey into a Gothic world of suburban graveyards and broken souls.
Paranormal activity, a family’s terrible forgotten secret and a police investigation converge in Ghosthunter, part family memoir and part true crime podcast. Years of self-reflection and estranged characters from the past bring Jason and Ben to a confronting conclusion - that sometimes the most terrifying ghosts are the ones we find within ourselves.
"True crime and the paranormal collide in Ghosthunter... Much like Serial and S-Town, Ghosthunter starts off following the story of an eccentric man on a Quixotic journey, then morphs into a tale focused more on family and foibles than the supernatural." (Rolling Stone)
