NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.,– Following the strong fan reaction, NextVR brings its original series “Paranormal Evidence” back in time for Halloween with a virtual reality investigation of Rolling Hills Asylum. The trailer releases today, Friday the 13th and the two-part episode premieres on October 26 exclusively in the NextVR app. The Rolling Hills Asylum episode contains VR footage from multiple angles of what appears to be a physical attack on a member of the investigative team.
The investigative team lead by linguistics expert Jack Kassewitz, traveled to upstate New York to embark on Rolling Hills Asylum which opened in 1827. Jack took his team to the notorious property, well-known to the paranormal community as a facility with a long history of bizarre events. The team’s deep research of county records and newspaper archives armed them with unique artifacts to trigger paranormal activity. The investigators also used the research to focus on specific rooms in the abandoned building.
NextVR’s proprietary full-spectrum camera system proved invaluable in capturing events in the dark. “We were well aware of the reports and the rumors surrounding Rolling Hills Asylum, but we had no idea it could be dangerous,” commented Michael Watchulonis, Executive Producer. “One of our investigators hit the floor really hard as if she had fainted, but she insisted she was pushed by some unseen force. We didn’t realize how violent it was until we were able to see the VR footage in a headset.”
The “Paranormal Evidence: Rolling Hills Asylum” trailer is available today in the NextVR app and fans can experience the full episode on October 26. Fans with a Samsung GearVR headset or Google Daydream View, along with a compatible smartphone, can download the free NextVR app from the Oculus Store for GearVR or the Google Play Store for Daydream users. Just in time for the premiere, Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality users can also experience the haunts of the Rolling Hills Asylum in VR.
