If the thought of ghosts and paranormal activity gives you the heebie-geebies... this post is most definitely NOT for you.

In August, the creators of "Sir NoFace Lives" will be in Charlotte for a screening of their documentary. 

Chad Calek, from the hit A&E show "Paranormal State" has been making paranormal documentaries for the last several years and this is his most recent.

Filmed in Australia, Chad shares his spine tingling experience, namely (he claims) capturing the image of a full blown ghost!

Here's the trailer:

Safe to say I have questions and need to see this footage for myself. Still doing some personal soul searching however, to determine if I'm actually brave enough. I'm assuming these images simply cannot be unseen and a good night sleep is very important to me.

"Sir NoFace Lives" will be at the McGlohan Theater at Spirit Square Saturday, August 12.

Tickets are onsale now and some packages include really cool VIP opportunities, like a Q&A session with Chad to truly get your ghost geek-on.





Do Ghosts Exist? Austin Gets a Glimpse of Sir NoFace

Do you believe in ghosts?

Had you spent an August evening with filmmakers Chad Calek and Justin Holstein, you might have said “yes.” The two noted paranormal investigators were in Austin to promote their latest project, Sir NoFace.  This documentary investigates a “full-body apparition” recorded by an Australian paranormal team. Is the image an accomplished fake, or does the footage prove, once and for all, that ghosts exist?

Austin Welcomes Sir NoFace

The Sir NoFace Lives Tour launched in Austin at Emo’s on Aug. 2, 2017, and whether you believe or not, Calek and Holstein put on a great evening. The two men, friends for more than 20 years, shared their love of film in an easy-going, personable manner before a raptly enthusiastic crowd of fans. They showed clips, told stories, and laughed at each other (and themselves) for being terrified. As Calek put it, “There’s a certain amount of humor in being completely f**ked.”

Calek is known as director and star of the autobiographical documentary  American Ghost Hunter  and A&E’s reality series Paranormal State.  He and Holstein formed AGH Television, an independent digital distribution website and home to their many joint projects. Recently, A Blood Red Sky became available on Amazon Prime. Britain’s Chillingham Castle, the “most haunted location in the world,” sets the scene for Calek, Holstein, and the rest of the AGH team to explore the interaction of altering their minds while experiencing paranormal activity.

These filmmakers are masters at building suspense and setting mood. Sir NoFace was genuinely creepy, and dark, cavernous Emo’s ( 2015 E. Riverside Dr. ) was the perfect setting for getting your pants scared off. And becoming a believer.

3 Tips for New Ghost Hunters

  • Do your research (look for places with known activity and read up on their history before you go)
  • As a protection, listen to the voice inside of you (“when you’re calling for the undead to do things to you, it gets really scary,” so trust your instincts)
  • Don’t play with a Ouija board (“it’s not the board itself–it could be a Ouija banana ; you’re giving up your freedom. And that’s dangerous….”)

Famously Haunted Places in ATX

Top Trip Rentals was happy to host the AGH team at another historic (but not so ghostly) Austin property, 410 E. 6th Street (also known as the Graeber House). Calek, Holstein, and crew were looking for a space where they could all stay together. “The road is a tremendous amount of work,” Calek explained in an email. “I prefer to be tucked away in a place that has similar amenities to my home, so that I can enjoy the company of my touring team, who are also my closest friends.”

We’re pretty sure 410 E. 6th Street isn’t haunted. But if you’d like a tour of some Austin spots that supposedly host a ghost or two, take a look at Austin Ghost Tours  when you book your next ATX stay.

Japanese name

顔無し (Kaonashi)

First Appearance

Spirited Away


Supporting character

Voice actor (Japanese)

Akio Nakamura

No-Face (顔無し, Kaonashi, lit. "Faceless") is a character in the film, Spirited Away. He is shown to be capable of reacting to emotions and ingesting other individuals in order to gain their personality and physical traits.


When first introduced, No-Face appeared in a semi-transparent state while shifting in and out of visibility. His organs are visible, pulsating in several states. His figure resembles that of a long, black tube. While it is unknown if No-Face has a physical body, it is shown that he can develop arms and legs with the capability of leaving footprints as he walks. An ominous, expressionless mask with grey-violet highlights is painted on his "head" of sorts, and while there is a "mouth" painted on the mask, No-Face has shown that his real, expertly-hidden mouth is larger than the one present on his mask.


No-Face is a lonely spirit who begins to follow Chihiro Ogino after having developed an interest in her sincerity. His vocabulary consisted of grunts and moans as opposed to coherent words. Not knowing much about the Bathhouse or about other spirits in general, No-Face learned by example and adapted to his surroundings.

Exposed to the corruptive thoughts and greed of the workers, he quickly grew to encompass their personalities, hoping that his endeavor to be like those around Chihiro would eventually garner her affection for him. While this ultimately brought upon the opposite effect, Chihiro was somewhat true to No-Face after she invited him and accepted help from him.

No-Face becomes obsessed with Chihiro, and wants to see her and her only. He becomes extremely volatile after being fed the River Spirit's emetic dumpling by Chihiro, and, while fleeing from the obviously now-hostile spirit, she calls out to him twice to follow her. She accepts him as a co-journeyer into the train ride on her way to Swamp Bottom after he calms down and is out of the Bathhouse. At this stage, No-Face is no longer aggressive and is quite docile, even obeying Chihiro's orders, like "sit" and "behave yourself."

As a monstrous, out-of-control being, No-Face exhibits all the negative traits of those he had swallowed (most significantly, Aogaeru), becoming a brash, arrogant, loud and selfish creature whose obsession with Chihiro proved troubling for everyone around it.

Towards the end of the film, No-Face meets with Zeniba, another witch who works alone, in contrast to Yubaba, who runs her bathhouse with a complex hierarchy. Perhaps attempting to match the rules of the new tiny society, No-Face starts spinning and knitting and appears proficient in that. Happy with his new environment, he accepts Zeniba's proposal to stay with her as an apprentice.


No-Face was first introduced standing on the bridge watching a rushing Chihiro and Haku, who were, at the time, trying to avoid any spirits from persecuting her for being a human. He subsequently disappeared and reappeared again on the bridge the morning after, watching a passing Chihiro with fascination. No-Face reappears after he is let into the Bathhouse by a considerate Chihiro, who worried that he would get wet while waiting out in the rain. He emerges again next to the Foreman, stealing a Bath Token for Chihiro. Happy that she thanked him, No-Face subsequently steals more tokens, but is ultimately rejected by Chihiro, who told him that she only needed one. Disheartened, No-Face disappears, leaving the tokens to fall to the floor.

No-Face helps Chihiro by giving her the token.

While the rest of the workers celebrated after the leave of the Unnamed River Spirit, No-Face was seen sitting in a corner, watching as the workers fought and argued for leftover gold on the ground. Learning that gold was important, No-Face baited an unsuspecting Aogaeru to come closer to him when the latter was digging for gold in the middle of the night, swallowing the frog spirit and gaining his corruptive properties soon after. With the negative qualities in Aogaeru reflecting in him, No-Face demanded a luxurious bath from the workers, throwing magically-conjured gold to the workers in the process and becoming larger by ingesting large amounts of food.

With his assumed large amount of wealth No-Face became a sensation with the workers who constantly begged for tips from him. After witnessing Chihiro reject his offering of gold, No-Face dropped the gold onto the ground in despair, forcing greedy workers to fight for a piece. Angered in assuming that a worker insulted him, No-Face consumes two other people, as his true nature is revealed to the horrified workers.

No-Face then throws a tantrum in a guest room, demanding to see Chihiro. With his offering of gold nuggets rejected a third time, No-Face expresses sadness when Chihiro mentions that he could not give her "what she truly wants". After being fed the last of Chihiro's emetic dumpling from the unnamed river spirit, No-Face chases Chihiro through the lower levels of the bathhouse while regurgitating everything he has eaten. He returns to his timid self and follows Chihiro to a train platform where they travel to Zeniba's home at Swamp Bottom to return a stolen sigil. As Chihiro leaves, No-Face is told by Zeniba to stay with her. He is last seen with Zeniba and her Hopping Lantern bidding Chihiro farewell as she flies off on Haku's back.


Mimicry: Whenever he eats a creature, he uses its voice and abilities. For example, after eating Aogaeru, he speaks with Aogaeru's voice and he starts to jump like a frog. He also takes on Aogaeru's personality.[1] If he eats more creatures, he will speak with different voices simultaneously. Because of this ability, his gender is unclear.

Alchemy: He can transform mud and dirt into objects like gold.

Absorbing: He can eat anything, whether it's food or spirits. This may be an extension of his mimicry ability.

Behind The Scenes

No-Face is an original character created by Hayao Miyazaki that previously didn't exist in Japanese mythology.[2]

In a July 2001 press conference held upon completion of the film at Imperial Hotel, Miyazaki explained No-Face's presence, "When I'm not around, the producer's apparently been telling everyone, "No-Face is Miya-san's alter-ego." Yet even without getting intellectual about it, I think there's probably a bit of No-Face in all of us."[3]

He later elaborated, "There are No-Faces all around us. Because there's only a paper-thin difference between evil spirits and gods. And on top of that, this film is set in Aburaya, a bathhouse. So once you open the doors, all sorts of things come in." However, when asked if No-Face represented the youth today, he explained, "I didn't make this film with that in mind. No-Face is just a name and a mask, and other than that we don't really know what he's thinking or what he wants to do. We just named him No-Face because his expression never changes; that's all. But I do think there are people like him everywhere, people who want to glom on to someone but have no sense of self."[4]


His physical appearance is taken from Bombyx mori, a silkworm. Character designer Masashi Ando elaborated, "No-Face is basically expressionless, but I ended up adding just a tiny bit of expression. It might have been better to make his mask more Noh-like without any expression at all, conveying his expressions by lighting. No-Face swallows the bath house workers, and I thought it might have been interesting if he acquired their personalities and ability to reason. This way he might become more human and appealing."[5]

Acclaimed director Chad Calek (“American Ghost Hunter” and “A Blood Red Sky”) offered Powell and his team the opportunity to document their investigation, but with intense scrutiny from Calek who would try to prove the tale to be a hoax. The resulting documentary, SIR NOFACE, chronicles the Cockatoo Island investigation through eye witness accounts and Calek’s own evaluation. and igation that led to the filming of a full-body apparition, which for the first time in history, definitively proves the existence of ghosts!

About Chad Calek

Known for his unique visual story-telling style and poetic narration, Calek is best perhaps known for his autobiographical documentary American Ghost Hunter, which became the only independent paranormal documentary to reach #1 on HULU as the most-watched movie in America. It is currently the #3 most-watched paranormal film of all-time on HULU.

As a paranormal investigator, Calek has spent more than 25 years investigating the world’s most haunted locations, searching for answers to the bizarre, the mysterious, and the unexplained. While known for capturing some of the most compelling evidence in the history of the paranormal field, Calek has also developed a reputation as a staunch “debunker” who has discovered rational explanations to many of the world’s most famous paranormal legends.

Calek first burst onto the national scene in 2008 as the outspoken and often censored co-star and director of what would ultimately become a five-season run of A&E’s hit reality series “Paranormal State.” His on-screen popularity led to A&E’s spin-off special, “The Ghost Prophecies,” documenting Calek’s unique life as the only known award-winning professional filmmaker who doubles as a professional paranormal investigator. Calek served as its executive producer, director, writer, editor, and on-screen focus which also co-starred his best friend, fellow filmmaker, and paranormal investigative partner, Justin Holstein. “The Ghost Prophecies” drew 1.6 million viewers, making it the highest-rated spin-off special of 2010.

In addition to the “SIR NOFACE LIVES TOUR,” Calek’s A Blood Red Sky documentary will also be released in 2017, as well as the Verizon GO90 platform release of the “Ghosted” series for which Calek serves as executive producer and on-screen co-star.
