In the October issue of Downhome, and with Halloween fast approaching, we seek out the individuals behind the mysterious world of the occult. Specifically, we take a closer look at psychic ability, hypnotism and illusion. Downhome tracked down three experts to get an inside look at these fascinating topics.
