The Scares Continue in Season 3

"Season 3 of A Haunting continues to provide well made documentaries of paranormal experiences and investigations. The episodes are just as good, and in some cases better, than those from Seasons 1 & 2. A Haunting is a documentary series that explores allegedly true tales of hauntings, ghosts and the paranormal. Each show is composed of high quality atmospheric reenactments that follow descriptions of eyewitnesses. Superimposed on the action is the creepy, measured voice of a narrator who sets the mood and explains the events. The show is exceptionally effective. Most episodes have at least some unnerving moments and some are downright scary. Viewers interested in the paranormal should love this series as should people who like horror movies.
Below is a short description of each episode in Season 3. The number in parentheses is my "scariness rating"; scale = 1-5 with 5 being the scariest. Minor spoilers throughout.
Fear House - Two separate families independently experience terrifying events in a Missouri house that seems to be able to identify and attack a persons deepest fears (3)

"I bought seasons 1, 2 & 3 for my son's birthday. We are fans of the show and he flipped out when he got it. We love that all the stories are based on true events and all have an element of scariness without any blood or gore. The acting sometimes isn't all that great but that kind of lends to the entertainment value. We love every show from start to finish. There are about 5 shows per DVD (3 DVD's total)and each show is about 45 minutes long (they are hour long shows on TV with commercials). We had a 2 day marathon when we got the dvd's in the mail. I highly recommend these to anyone interested in the paranormal."

"Great, as all hauntings are - nothing to complain about story wise - I just recall in the first two seasons - they would get to the heart of why the ghosts were haunting people - whereas now they seem to cut it off in the end - never explaining why the ghost was haunting that particular place ' no matter - still spooky - love every one of the ten stories!"
Another great season of creepy supernatural stories

"I'm a fan of the show, and have the entire seasons 1-4, which I also purchased for my mom. This supernatural-themed show is engaging and interesting - drawing viewers into the various stories through credible re-enactments, interspersed with actual interviews with paranormal experts and witnesses.
In Season 3, the theme is "Haunted Houses, Demonic Angels" and the episodes are [no particular order]:
The Wheatsheaf Horror - a psychic investigates a murderous spirit in an English pub.
The Possessed - when those who try to protect others from falling prey to supernatural entities are themselves afflicted.
The Presence - a young family battles unearthly entities in their home.
The Dark Side - Ed and Lorraine Warren, paranormal investigators, are enlisted to help a warring couple whose marital troubles attracts a demonic presence.
The Unleashed - an inquisitive young man unleashes terrifying entities through the use of ancient incantations.
A Haunting in Ireland - a new baby causes a family in Galway to be haunted by a restless spirit.
The Forgotten - a Victorian home undergoes renovation, only to awaken an evil ghost, and revealing the house's tragic past.
Fear House - a man and his kids escape a haunted house, but the father returns to help the new inhabitants.
The Attic - a young mother senses an unearthly presence in her new home that might threaten the safety of her son.
Hidden Terror - a man resorts to technology to uncover strange happenings in his home, with suprising consequences.
The DVD features no extras. There are interactive menus and chapter selection options. I'd highly recommend this series to those who love supernatural-themed shows that are high on atmosphere."
