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.
At first glance, this program appears to be similar to My Ghost Story and Paranormal Witness (two programs I quite enjoy). However, after watching a few episodes of My Haunted House, it dawned on me that the "eyewitnesses" are paid actors (and not very good ones, at that) telling a story which is 100% scripted.
Obviously, the re-enactments would use actors, just like other shows in this genre. However, I strongly suspect that the "eyewitness accounts" have all been dreamed up by scriptwriters. The "eyewitnesses" telling the stories are mostly very unconvincing. The acting is so wooden, I'm surprised I didn't realise it was fake much sooner than I did.
Realising that the program is fake simply sucked all of the enjoyment out of it for me.
A clue to the show being completely fake is given during the credit sequences. At the start of the program it states "The following two stories are inspired by documented paranormal encounters". Reading between the lines, "inspired by" translates to "completely made up".
I believe it should be openly disclosed that this program features works of fiction rather than "eyewitness accounts" of paranormal encounters.
