"First of all, I adore ghost documentaries. The most realistic the better. Secondly, orbs are fascinating to look at -- the first one, two dozen times you see them. After that, they're boring. When I see ghost documentaries, I need to see more than orbs. I need to see things moving by themselves, I need to hear sounds that are not being made by humans, I need to see figures through infrared cameras that aren't there when you take the camera away. Orbs and protoplasms just don't cut it anymore.But orbs are just what you get in this documentary. That and a medium who "feels" the presence of spirits while she walks around a house. That's it.This may be impressive for a novice, but it's quite a yawnful for someone who's already has seen other ghost documentaries (or has had their own ghostly experiences).Incidentally, I'm afraid I can't say that this town could, by *any* stretch of the imagination, be called the "Most Haunted Town". By what standards? By a 10-mile radius? In the county? What? The name fools you already.So it's up to you. If you're a ghost "virgin", you may be impressed. If you've been around the block already, move on. You may be more impressed with "Scariest Places on Earth". At least you can *pretend* that there's something going on there."

"I have watched a lot of true ghost story shows on Discovery, Travel Channel, etc. and expected something similar with this video. This was HORRIBLE! This had to be the dumbest "real" ghost story video I have ever seen. The "real" images were nothing more than light glares. To make the images move on video, the guy just wiggled the camera. They had a "sensitive" that went to 3-4 of the locations and immediately found the ghosts everytime at which point she professed her love for them and pretended to communicate with them. By the end of it, my wife and I thought we were watching a Saturday Night Live skit because it was so ridiculous."
The most amazing footage of ghosts I've ever seen

"This video is so different than most ghost shows...and for that reason it is GREAT!! There are no silly "ghost" reenactments... but, instead, some absolutely incredible photos and VIDEO of spirits in their "soul forms" and "ectoplasmic forms"...you can actually see spirits "floating" (I don't know how else to describe it!) by the camera...and you can tell they're not dust, flashlights, whatever else a skeptic may suspect. And because the director just lets you watch without "slicking" it up with fancy editing or graphics, you can actually watch the spirits in real time, as they were filmed. And the "sensitive" featured on the show, Cathe Curtis, is utterly believable: down to earth, funny...how many ghost shows make you laugh? All in all I thoroughly enjoyed this show. And I have to admit, the last segment, in the New Hope Cemetery, brought me to tears it was so absolutely beautiful and moving. You simply have to watch it to know what I mean. I cried like a baby...and I still tear up when I see watch it..but as Ms. Curtis says in the show, it was a "happy cry.""

"I'm a firm believer in ghosts, but always remain a skeptic when not experiencing paranormal occurrences myself. Cathe claims to be a sensitive... highly doubt it. Anyone could have put on the performances that she put on. The orbs that were shown on the videos could very well have been flashlights in the forest. At one point, when the camera zoomed in on the orb, the shape of the orb was more visible and wasn't circular as it had formerly appeared to be, it was a perfect square (like those square shaped flashlights). And the fact that Cathe kept approaching every "spirit" like it was a little child was incredibly annoying. She would say, "It's OK, come out. I love you, I love you. No one's going to hurt you." I mean come on, if they were spirits, then they obviously used to be human and don't need to be baby talked like they've never been a part of the real world. All in all, not a convincing documentary and barely even entertaining. The only enjoyable parts were the interviews with people who actually lived in the haunted buildings being investigated. Cathe just seemed like an intruder and, unfortunately, she was in the majority of the video."
