Story follows members of the famous Penn State Paranormal Research Society as they investigate strange and unusual phenomena across the country. Story also features their hectic lives as college students and faculty.
Good show, but the reviewers need to use some prudence.
These stories are great, they really make a paranormally inclined person such as myself question, which is what I like, but many of these stories don't seem so far fetched (but there are a lots of segments I have my doubts they didn't "spice up" -1 star). I know some people that have very similar stories to these.
There's lots on demons and poltergeists, so in that respect, the title "My Haunted House" doesn't really make sense. Your house can't be haunted by demons, it's inhabited. And poltergeist occurs at a house, it doesn't haunt. Ghosts haunt by definition. For that, it gets a .5 a star off. The title should have been something to do with paranormal, not "haunted". Misleading, but the show makes up for it.
Thirdly, on some occasions, they only have one person telling the story, for both segments. They also state later that "...identities...have been changed". Why show this message if there is 2 people telling two people telling two stories? Seems to me they hired actors to tell the experiences of people, hence the "wooden" performance. I suppose they could hire better actors to tell the actual stories of what was documented by people who were willing to come forward but not give their name nor their presence. Knocking off .5 a star for that because the show is mostly re-enactments anyway.
To the reviewers, use a bit of logic. The show clearly states that they are "inspired by paranormal events". It's basically the experience minus all the suspenseful parts (which I live for, but if you have a problem with it, I guess you're not a horror film fan).
EDIT: The shows quality has gone down dramatically because they've started making up paranormal claims. Prior to the third season, there was no "all persons fictitious" disclaimer in the beginning. Now there is, and I've stopped watching. The show could get away with embellishing before, since they were actually based on paranormal encounters. Henceforth, I will not be watching the show.
