Who is Matthew Anderson?
Matthew Anderson is a reality star, former cameraman, and ghost hunter who made a name for himself on the Dead Files. It is easily one of the most entertaining, albeit spooky shows on television.

The show first aired back on September 23rd, 2011. Its first episode was titled ‘Evil in Erieville’ and saw the two investigate a reportedly haunted farm.
