Following the screening, Science Channel will present a panel with eye-witness accounts of strange happenings including the location of a possible paranormal superhighway, evidence of the Mexican Chupacabra, and the real story of the exorcism that inspired the film The Exorcist.

Science Channel’s presentation will be held on Friday, July 25 from 7 to 8pm in Room 7AB.

The panel includes various experts –  Ken Gerhard, a Crytozoologist who will speak to the “Mexican Chupcabra” phenomenon; Troy Taylor, a noted author, writer and supernatural historian who has studied exorcisms extensively; and Chuck Zukowski, Paranormal Freelance Investigator and Comic- Con veteran who has been researching and investigating the paranormal superhighway for nearly 30 years – as well as Linda Blair,  star of the 1973 classic film The Exorcist 

In season two of Science Channel’s The Unexplained Files, 12 all-new episodes will launch viewers into another gripping exploration of the unknown by investigating more of the most puzzling, global incidents from the United States and Russia to Bosnia-Herzegovina, Mexico and more. Using dramatic reconstructions, riveting never-before-seen footage, first-hand eyewitness accounts, and expert interviews, The Unexplained Files takes a scientific look at the inexplicable, uncovering paranormal activities that have mystified scientists, inspired legends, and captured the human imagination for centuries. Many of the stories featured will reveal new evidence and bring forward previously undisclosed eyewitness accounts to shed light on stories that have baffled experts for years.

Season two of The Unexplained Files makes its world premiere on Science Channel Tuesday, July 29 at 10PM ET/PT.

Science Channel, Discovery Channel Bring Discovery Spirit to Comic-Con

July 22, 2013 | by akowalczyk

Comic-Con 2013This weekend, the Science Channel and Discovery Channel joined more than 130,000 comic book fans in San Diego for Comic-Con 2013, the largest international celebration of comics and popular art. With over 20,000 swag bags in tow, the Science Channel took San Diego by storm, presenting two prime-time panels that quickly became “standing room only,” while the Discovery Channel blanketed the city in a protest to “Save Snuffy.”

On Friday, the Science Channel presented its panel for Outrageous Acts of Science, a breakout series, set to premiere on Sunday, August 4 at 4pm ET/PT, where citizen scientists from around the world walk the line between genius and insanity. The panelists, including Science Channel’s Hakeem Oluseyi and Eric Gradman, dissected some of the craziest web videos ever created, drawing from astrophysics and biology for answers.

On Saturday, Science Channel took its fans on a mystifying journey, with The Unexplained Files, based off a new show to premiere on Wednesday, August 28 at 9pm ET/PT.  Scientists, eyewitnesses, and producers shared never-before-seen footage of some of the world’s most puzzling phenomena – UFO sightings, peculiar afflictions, strange loud sounds – and then shared first-person accounts of some of the truly unexplainable, including encounters with The Blue Dog, Mothman, Alien Ran, The Ghost Yatch, Morellon’s Disease and much more.

Throughout the weekend, Discovery Channel recruited fans to join their fight to “Save Snuffy,” the seal featured in the infamous Shark Week ad. On Friday and Saturday, a large aerial banner flew around San Diego, and Snuffy protestors demanded justice for the seal on the ground, passing out “Save Snuffy” bumper stickers and asking digital fans to share their support on Facebook and Twitter.
