In early 2007, a small team of paranormal investigators led by Arron Kasady, entered the building to conduct some preliminary tests. Photographs were taken, that produced images of strange orbs in certain rooms, particularly the old childrenís nursery. Erratic temperature readings were recorded throughout the hall, and the team had the feeling of being constantly watched.
Arron spoke with Daren Marc, a local film maker and friend of Arronís, about his investigations there. Daren was looking for a project to develop into a feature film at this time, when Arron suggested to him about collaborating on a movie documentary about the ghosts at Crowley Hall. Daren took a little persuading, as this wasnít really the kind of project he was looking for. When he agreed to co-produce with Arron and direct the film himself, he soon became very eager to make the movie a success. They made plans to go to Crowley Hall with a ghost team and film crew and see what they could sicover there.
A ghost team that included a parapsychologist, spiritual medium and journalist, together with the film crew, spent two nights at the hall during the summer of 2007. Throughout the nights, various experiments designed to provoke paranormal activity took place. A major centrepiece of the investigation was a sťance, conducted by Arron himself. He wanted to collect conclusive evidence of paranormal activity, possibly even getting photographic proof of the afterlife. The whole event was filmed and documented for the movie 'The Ghosts of Crowley Hall'.
As the film crew together with Arron discussed the plans for the eveningís investigation, they went on a walkabout throughout the old hospital. Prior to returning to the Hall, Arron and Katherine had done some more research, particularly to the layout and which rooms Dr. Leys frequented the most. A sitting room was discovered that Leys used to use often, a room that had gone unnoticed the previous time they were there. It was decided that the investigation would be concentrated here.
The film crew and Arronís ghost team set-up ready for the nights filming, doing some walkabouts on camera to some of the areas used in the first part of the documentary, particularly where the sťance had been held in the old childrenís ward. When it was approaching midnight, it was time to take the crew to the sitting room and see what they could find there.
Again, so to not be a distraction from the investigation, a minimal team was used, consisting of Arron, Annabel, Katherine, and of course Daren on camera, to film inside the sitting room. It took Arron some courage to open the door and enter the room, as at this point it was dark, and the hall was already beginning to feel very creepy.
