"The Ghost Boy of Geneseo"
As a young college student, Chris DiCesare's view of life was forever changed by a series of horrifying events in and around his dorm room: C2D1 at SUNY Geneseo. From early February through late April of 1985, he and his college friends endured what is now referred to as 'The C2D1 Haunting'. Apparitions sighted, disembodied voices heard, moving objects witnessed and frightening physical attacks all became part of the ordeal suffered by Chris - who quickly became the focal point of the haunting - and several of his college classmates. Long suppressed by the participants themselves, the extreme haunting eventually moved into the realm of ‘urban legend’. After almost a quarter century of avoiding the spotlight, in 2009 DiCesare - convinced by the level of respect and authenticity provided by the "Please, talk with me..." film project - finally agreed to share his experience. The film recreates the 1985 events surrounding the photograph that has become known across the internet as the 'C2D1 ghost'.
Following a 2011 college speaking tour, Chris was featured on the SyFy channel's show "School Spirits". The episode titled 'Dorm Room Nightmare' first aired on June 27th, 2012 and gained national attention. "Please, talk with me" premiered at SCARE-A-CUSE on September 14th, 2012 along with a companion book by the Rev. Tim Shaw (foreword by John Zaffis, the Haunted Collector) which was published the same day.
DiCesare’s recently released memoir, Surviving Evidence, (Dark Moon Press, 2014) offers a compelling first-hand accounting of the infamous extreme haunting from the person who found himself at its center … and survived it.
Christopher will be presenting his story followed by Q & A session.
His books and DVDs will be available for purchase.
