Season 8 : Episode 10

Show Summary

"Between the world we see, and the things we fear... there are doors. When they are opened... nightmares becomes reality". That's according to the introduction of this series which dramatizes the "true" stories of people who have been haunted. In this docudrama, the actual people who have experienced the paranormal recount their stories on-camera, as the frightening events of their stories are re-enacted. (Fearing ridicule, some of the witnesses are shown only in silhouette.) Filmed in a very cinematic style, A Haunting sets out to frighten, providing a few genuine chills in most episodes. Many of the stories contain common elements (moving into an old house where people have died, spirits attaching themselves to young children) and a predictable ending (spirit possession, or as often as not, the staging of an exorcism.) A Haunting began as two specials ("Connecticut" and "Georgia") before being turned into a series.

    • Same old crap

      2.0
      Stop LITERALLY showing the exact same shows OVER AND OVER AND OVER. My GOD Destination America, you play this shit all day and it's the same 4 episodes on repeat.
    • There can't be this many demons

      2.0
      I've watched this program since the beginning in 2005. I agree with the opinion "Same stuff different episode". I do believe demons do exist but they are not that common. Lately, this has become the focus of the show. After watching last night's episode, (Season 8-episode 10) "Vision of Terror" I noticed the young girl, 10 year old Bryn looked very familiar. She was the target of a demon. Have a look at Season 7-episode 7 "Child's Play" where 9 year old Brittany is also a demon target. They are both the same child, only Bryn doesn't use the Southern drawl. I understand using the same actors/actresses for reenactments. Aren't the purported actual witnesses that are interviewed supposed to be authentic? It's disappointing because the earlier seasons actually featured renowned psychics like Amy Allen and Bob and Lorraine Warren. Now they have "Johnny, The Cleaner" and other people I've never heard of. In my opinion, this program has gone downhill and the producers must think the viewers are daft.moreless
    • Same stuff different episode

      2.0
      So far the new season is terrible! Same story over and over and over. What happened to the good old ghost stories you used to show, now it's all about demons. I really hate it and am considering not watching the show anymore. family moves into home, family starts having issues, someone get's scratched, in threes, family calls paranormal team in, paranormal team "cleanses" the house, it's quiet for a few days, even though everything seemed "lighter" and "brighter" the entity comes back, so they call back the same paranormal team ( who obviously failed the first time ) who brings a priest or other clergy or some self proclaimed Demonologist who does another cleansing ( always with sage ) the camera shakes the wind blows the background music becomes so loud you can't even hear the actors yadda yadda. every freaking episode!!!moreless
    • New season finally 2016!

      10
      I am a long time fan of the show. I like that religion is not masked or left out of the show in an attempt to appease the non-believers. It's fine that you have no faith but don't expect the realities of fighting evil to be toned down for political correctness. That's half the problem with this country, someone is always offended. The truth is to fight evil, faith is required. It doesn't have to be Christianity but since there are millions of Christians world wide, you should not be surprised that the faith of those being haunted is Christian. I personally feel badly for those they depict on the show whose children have never been baptized or who have no faith. To rid themselves of evil near impossible without Christ. It's just truth sorry if it offends, don't watch the show then.

      As for the new season 2016, it's pretty good but the drama seems amped up, and the special effects seem to make it less real. I guess what was left to the imagination from afar was more realistic. For me anyway. Besides that, so happy the show is back from hiatus!moreless
    • demons and casper same yet different

      9.5
      its a great show like grandma's bedtime stories, yes don't dabble with the dark side ,being a muslim its part of our faith to believe in jin(ghosts) there is a whole chapter in the holy quran ,that doesn't necessarily mean that i don't beleive that torah or bible's ability to defeat dark demons (disciples of satan) is any much lesser after all even with human editing of those two holy books word of god still is in them both as well along with human made up philosophy over time , so here is what muslims beleive, it is no human spirits stick arnd the earth to roam it for eternity only ones around are jinns and the devil was of the jinns (not a fallen angel) but he was granted rank and equality with angels for being pious and prayfull to the almighty untill god made adam and ordered all the angels and satan to bow before adam as he is the best of gods creation every angel bowed as angels don't have free will but jinn like men have free will he did not bow due to his pride as being better then humans long story short he was banished from the ranks of angels , satan devil can not be at all places at once so he has disciples(from jinns ghosts) who go arnd misleading misdireting mankind ,so the bottom line is there are no human spirits arnd only jinns immitating human shape to manipulate emotions, now jinns can be good or bad (demonic), jinns have religions as well they live they die they reproduce ,anyhow a great show love itmoreless
