Erik Rowton


Erik Rowton is a filmmaker, paranormal investigator, and writer. Born in the United States, a near-death experience at an early age acted as a catalyst for Erik’s interest in the paranormal. After meeting his future wife Laura and discovering a shared passion for all things unexplained, he cultivated his interest by co-founding The Paranormal Scholar in 2015, a YouTube channel and website dedicated to the objective exploration of anomalous phenomena.

More behind-the-scenes than his other half, Erik was responsible for the camera work and post-production of their 2019 feature documentary on survival, “In Search of the Dead”. Asides from “In Search of the Dead”, some of Erik’s most well-regarded work to date includes his investigative work and documentary on the Pentyrch UFO Incident, and coverage of paranormal experiences reported by the military.
