Gene Simmons was scared our of his whitts after the Seance Michael conducted in the ships most haunted cabin!
Touring the Lobby are the actors portraying a TV show producer: A.J. Gentile, the Queen Mary Guide, Phil who actually works on the ship, but is an actor, too, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed...about to go below to the haunted boiler rooms six decks below.
Believe it or not, this short clip took over 9 takes, for the director and cameraman to get it right. Actors may be used to doing TV shows this way, but ghosts aren't. We heard all kinds of creepy natural sounds coming from the haunted swimming pool below. Splashing sounds, people talking and other weird things, though we were the only living people there that night. The shot started at around 9pm and lasted until nearly midnight.
The Swimming Pool below us...
Michael and Shannon in the Boiler Room. Shannon is totally creeped out, thinking someone is trying to pull her down from the platform we're all standing on.
Michael and A.J. Gentile in the Boiler Room... The Director called for large flashlights for the actors to give the illusion we were on a real Paranormal Investigation with Michael. "I could see, feel, and sense many real spirits around us down there and it totally made Gene Simmons feel uncomfortable. Off camera, he asked me questions about safety for lay people not normally associated with spirits."
Michael using his dowsing rods to show the group that they weren't alone. Though in the clip you only get to see a few seconds of this, it actually lasted over 2 hours. It's a real shame that these TV production people don't show the real phenomena more often, rather they change the dialogue to make it seem that psychics aren't the real deal. I was using a crystal pendulum and could hear a spirit guide for Gene ask me to mention Florence. Gene was stumped, (though they don't show his face on sceeen) and later an insert was added with Gene and Shannon suggesting I'd read his biography or watched the show to learn who Florence was - his mother. Cheap Tricks, too bad!
When I handed the rods to Gene, they actually worked after he held onto them for about 15 minutes He was fascinated with them, Shannon tried them too and also with great results. I explained that it might take awhile for my tools to work for them, and Gene, a skeptic, was utterly fascinated at how they worked for him. Again this wasn't shown on camera!
The Seance was Real and was held in a room said to be the most truly haunted and active one in the hotel. It is so scarey, the hotel no longer rents it out to guests. The stupid plumber investigators from that phony reality show, shot there, threw things around the room to make it seem haunted and actually broke an antique marble top table in there...Those goofballs never even paid for the damages, but claim the ghosts did it. We started our convocation with the spirits in the dark room and again the show edited down nearly 3 hours of communication with the spirits, but did show the candle flame rising up in answer to one of Gene's questions that nearly caught his hairsprayed doo on fire! Yes, that's his real hair, plastered over his scalp!
One comment to note about reality show's, they're often scripted and pre-planned like this one. I had no idea going in that there were going to be actors there pretending to want to show Gene the haunted boat, so he'd agree to co-produce a show all about ghosts and haunted houses. When I first met A.J., Gene and Shannon we were camped out in the Churchill suite in the hotel. Shannon looked up at me, and asked me who I was playing on the show. I told her I was playing myself, a real honest to goodness Psychic Medium. Gene looked up in horror. I mean his face turned white as a ghost and he kept trying to tease me and joke around with me about what I do. The fire alarm went off and he pointed at me saying "you did this, didn't you?" and I told him the spirits on this ship really like my energy and often do things like that to let me know they're aware that I'm on board again. There were so many unexplainable mishaps that occurred during the shoot including the hallway outside of our suite flooding. Gene and Shannon were standing in 4 inches of water with the power cords and electric cables near them. I literally yanked Gene into the room to get him out of the water and he later thanked me for possibly saving his life from electric shock. The crew were nice, but not very professional. They had me sign a contact, spelling my first and last name in print, then spelled my last name incorrectly on camera, even though I'd given everyone one of my business cards including Gene and Shannon. Don't the editors read those slips of paper?
All in all, it was a good shoot, it lasted many hours and we were all exhausted when it was over. They fed us dinner, but after shooting for nearly 6 hours, when we came back to the room there was nothing to eat, not even for the Star, Gene Simmons who was totally pissed off and let the director and crew know it. You can read more about what really happened in my new book: Haunted Houses of Hollywoodland, and later in my book: True Hauntings Aboard Queen Mary.
The Queen Mary Ship today in the 21st century

Michael has worked as a Spirit Medium/Decorator Extraordinary for decades and often receives impressions from those who haunt houses throughout the world to scare away new tenants with otherworldly ideas of decor. One family wanted to paint the walls of their historic 1920's Hollywood Tudor Mansion black and purple, but the former owner who died in the house had other ideas and worked hard to scare them away, that is, until Michael J. Kouri was called in to help.
Michael has re-decorated hundreds of dwellings including private homes, condo's, apartments, offices, churches, schools, hospitals, museum, Television production sets and more with the aid of his live and "dead" clients. You'll actually see photographs captured of Michael in action with rare supernatural footage of ghostly humans and animals, in this amazing book, the first of its kind ever written and who better to do it than this world famous Psychic Medium. Michael is considered a Ghost Magnet by thousands including true believers, scientists, and skeptics alike as he uses his keen abilities reaching into the afterlife and the great beyond.
You're sure to become an Armchair Ghosthunter yourself as you explore with Michael in his fifty-third book. If you don't believe in ghosts now, you sure will after encountering them in this book! You won't want to put it down. A few years ago, Michael pitched this idea to TV producers who loved the idea. The TV show is in production and soon you'll be watching Michael J. Kouri, the Psychic Decorator decorating dwellings on television or the Big screen since Michael is the only real Psychic Decorator in the world today.
Michael J. Kouri (Above Right) investigating one of the most haunted historical houses in Knoxville, Tennessee for CBS Television in May of 2011.
Long before conducting Haunted House Investigations, offering private Psychic Readings and working throughout the Paranormal field, Michael J. Kouri followed his grandmothers footsteps in the antique world. His maternal grandfather worked at the studios in Hollywood and Michael began collecting props used in motion pictures and his favorite television shows which were available for sale at Studio yard sales, antique shows and auctions. He soon became a well known dealer of such collectibles and has shared pieces from his personal collection in libraries and museums and he's appeared on television documentaries with some of his rarest pieces including a telephone used on the I Love Lucy show, the clock that hung over Lucy and Ricky's fireplace and more. worked as an antique dealer buying and selling antiques, movie and television props from estate sales, antique shops, shows and from private collectors or the stars of stage, TV and Screen themselves. It's not unusual to find Michael at auctions, prop house sales or autograph shows as he buys from all kinds of people to enhance his own collection, or help museums, theater owners, and collectors around the world increase their own collections, too. "The hunt for these treasures is the most fun." Michael has been accused of being a "Treasure Broker," throughout his career and enjoys this work immensely. Through the years, Michael has amassed one of the largest collections of costumes, and memorabilia which he shocases in his books. He supported himself as an antique dealer from the age of 13 years old and has been buying and selling antiques and collectibles ever since. Today, Michael offers antiques, collectibles, dolls, toys and props on various online auction sites, and here on his personal website, too. Michael is still a certified appraiser, has appeared on numerous T.V. shows showing his ginormous prop collection and written about them in his books. He has also consigned antiques, collectibles and props offering estate sales and/or selling them at auctions, but now you can buy pieces from Michael's collection, that have recently been photographed to appear in two new books: Haunted Houses of Hollywoodland and Jewels of the Movie Stars and the Glamour of Hollywood's Past.

Every item from Michael's personal collection will come to you complete with a certificate of provenance, professional appraisal value shown and if available photo images of the stars wearing, or working with the props offered.

Michael's Original Art, Giclee's & Props
from Movie and TV Shows For Sale
#P129 "The Choice" was one of my first oil paintings depicts a woman making the choice as to which Angel to go with in the afterlife. I won first prize at a Santa Barbara Art Show in 2008 with this painting which was painted in oil 16" x 24".
We now offer Giclee copies, which are restriked in several sections This Giclee version of the original is offered in 2 sizes. 8" x 10" Price $575.00 and 16" x 20" $1,695.00
Agnes Moorehead has always been one of my favorite Movie Stars. She was glamorous, witty, and fun, though she could quote Shakespeare with passion. She is most known for her role as Endora on America's first Paranormal Sitcom Bewitched, yet appeared in dozens of major motion pictures long before creating the role of the meddlesome mother-in-law to Darren Stephen's in Bewitched. I never got to meet her since she died when I was a little kid, but I've always admired her work as an actress. When I started painting in oils, I decided to try to paint Agnes and Elizabeth Montgomery. You'll see a copy of my original oil painting of Agnes below, which I entered in an art show and won a prize as an amateur painter. The original was sold a few years ago at a Sci-Fi convention, but with the magic of modern printing techniques I can now offer a printed image on canvas of my original paintings, so that many fans can enjoy them, too. Each of the Giclee" (French for print on canvas in the art world) are re painted in several areas so that the collector gets my energy on the canvas creating a Mixed Media limited edition.
With each of my paintings, and sculptures, you'll receive a certificate of authenticity, which is signed and numbered with the edition number of the pieces. To purchase any of these items just email our offices at firstname.lastname@example.org. We accept all major credit cards.
Long before I began to offer my God given psychic abilities to clients, I literally grew up in the entertainment industry. My maternal grandfather worked for many major movie studios and on several films and television shows including Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, and many more...He became fond friends with Agnes Moorehead and Elizabeth Montgomery and her husband William (Bill) Asher and he'd take me on tours of the various show sets of the particular shows he'd worked on, or would introduce me to his contacts. I like my grandmother and mother have always enjoyed and been fascinated with antiques. And it was through my grandfather's introduction to the entertainment industry I began to attend auctions, Movie Studio back lot sales, Prop House sales, and buying from private collections as I built my own unique collection of movie and TV show props. When my collection grew too large, I began selling pieces at antique shows, toy and doll shows and soon made another name for myself as a reputable antique dealer. I researched the pieces, the manufactures and was able to provide interesting facts and information about the pieces to my clients, and thus have been in that business for over 35 years. Yes, God truly gave me many unique gifts in this lifetime and I utilize each of them, some at the same time. People are often amazed that one person can do so many different things and be successful at them, too. Below you'll find some of the props I currently have for sale. Their professional appraisal price is shown on the COA which will accompany each piece to you with your purchase. Below is the item #, name and our price. Please give us the item # and name when you conact us for purchase. We charge accurate shipping which includes insurance and tracking based on your zip or country post code.
# P125 "Life Path" This is one of my all time favorite paintings. I captured the images under the pier in Huntington Beach, California with my camera, and was instantly attracted to the depth and the colors of the water teasing me with splashes against the barnacle encrusted wooden pylons supporting the pier. I knew I had to paint what I saw that day, which reminds me of each persons spiritual path. I painted the original in oil in 2010 and exhibited it in Huntington Beach at an art show. Everyone loved it, and it now hangs in my living room, however I offer giclee copies of it in 16" x 20" $1,295.00 or 24" x 36" $1,795.00
#P126 "Surfing U.S.A."During one of my Haunted Houses of Huntington Beach Ghost Tours, I snapped a photo of these surfers while conducting the tour in 2009. The image sort of haunted me due to the way the sunlight cast shadows against the warm sand and from the lone surfer watching his buddy ride a wave in the distance. As you can tell, I love the ocean, and capturing other scenes inside the painting is a challenge I enjoy creating. he original was painted on a 24" x 36" canvas in oil.
We offer a Giclee in 16" x 20" Price $1,450.00
Limited Edition of 100.
#P130 "Past Life in the Orient" This painting was one of my earliest pieces, inspired by an antique oil painting from my friend's art collection in Pasadena, Ca. My initial version was painted in Water Color on Canvas as a Doll House miniature measuring only 5" by 2." Then I painted a larger version as a 24" x 36 in Oil on Canvas. I love the magical wisteria reflected on the water and its old world style charm.

I've always been fascinated by the famous paintings and sculpture by Michelangelo....
My friend Jack is a model and when his wife asked me if I could paint his image from a photograph as a present to him, I decided to paint him with heavier brushstrokes and pallette knife to achieve an older effect. The painting Left
is what I created in the original oil painting on board.
When I was asked to create a Giclee version, I thought it could be interesting to also paint a quarter of his face in softer tones [shown right]). Both are now available in Giclee form.
