An investigative series that pairs Steve DiSchiavi, a retired Homicide Detective with the New York City Police Department with more than 21 years of active service with psychic communicator Amy Allan who has an established sixth sense and an affinity for channeling the dead. In order to not influence the other, the partners initially explore each case on their own. Steve interviews the residents/employees and investigates the history behind the property (prior ownership, murders or other crimes that occurred at or around the property, etc.) to verify the veracity of the claims, and Amy does a walk-through of the building and expressing any feelings, emotions, or other impressions she feels, with any leading items such as photos, personal items, religious items, etc., having been previously covered or removed, so as not to influence her impressions.

User Reviews

I love the show, but....
4 August 2018 | by kristinacguzikSee all my reviews

I love this show. Amy and Steve are great. The reason I gave it 7 stars is because at the end of the show, the situation is left undone and dangerous. The activity usually continues. A heap of really scary information about what's happening is given to families, as well as advice about how to clear the space.. The majority of families can't find shamans, reiki masters and mediums to do these clearings. It is very, very hard to find people with gifts to do these types of clearings. I would love the producers to bring in people to clear the spaces and incorporate in the clearings in the show.
