I have added several paranormal shows to my DVR and "A Haunting" is one of them. It appears to be an older show. At first I kinda liked this show. It re-enacts the events using actors while also interviewing the real people involved.
But, lately it has been getting on my nerves. Every story follows the exact same formula, and ALWAYS ends in the 'visitor' being a demon, blah blah blah... The claims are some of the most extraordinary paranormal experiences.
The worst part is that they often claim paranormal researchers came to help the families and that they captured videos, photos, and EVPs, yet they show absolutely none of these. Instead they show recreated photos, etc...
It's gotten to be about 50/50 where I end up turning off the show and deleting it just a few minutes into it.
Have others seen this show and if so, what are your thoughts of it?
I have never really liked this show much, because of the highly dramatization of it. I think it gives the impression to the viewing audience that these types of occurances are typical of most hauntings instead of being a rare occurance. I am having the same issue with the show Paranormal State, however Paranormal State tends not to always be negative....just sometimes I have seen that show be overly dramatic as well. It seems to me that there is something wrong with a show when week after week after week the only thing that they seem to do is end up calling in a Catholic Priest to perform an exorcism.
