History Presents: Haunted Histories

Show Summary

History Presents: Haunted Histories is a spooky documentary series that provides detailed accounts of some real-life horror stories, and looks past the scary myths manufactured by storytellers to find the terrifying true stories of the violent supernatural. Everyone is familiar with the vampire, ghost, witch, and zombie stories meant to entertain and scare us. However, not everyone knows the shocking real-life origins of many of these tall tales. This series looks back through history at paranormal occurrences that are far stranger than any fiction. In one episode, families who have lived in haunted houses relay their experiences and provide proof that something supernatural was living amongst them. Another episode examines the Salem Witch Trials, piecing together the bloody truth about what happened in those courtrooms and why. Other topics covered include the historical characters that share a little too much in common with popular monster stories, like vampires and Dr. Frankenstein. History Presents: Haunted Histories sheds some light on the shocking historical basis for many terrifying tales.moreless
