The Series Still Has It

"A Haunting is a documentary series that explores allegedly true tales of hauntings, ghosts and the supernatural. Each show is composed of high quality, atmospheric reenactments following the 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.
Season 4 of A Haunting should continue to appeal to fans. While many of the episodes in Season 4 are interesting, most are not as scary as those from previous seasons. In fact, some episodes can only be described as odd (e.g., Spellbound) and do not focus on a specific haunting. Some shows are excellent and dedicated viewers will still find plenty to enjoy. However, I would recommend that new viewers start with earlier seasons.
Below is a short description of each episode in Season 4. The number in parentheses is my "scariness rating"; scale = 1-5 with 5 being the scariest. Minor spoilers throughout.
Dark Wrath - A demon stalks the halls and terrifies the owners of a rural house near St. Louis (3)
The Awakening - Restless ghosts trouble a Midwestern couple (2)
The Calling - She sees dead people. A young mother is traumatized when her ability to see and interact with the deceased becomes impossible to control (2)
The Apartment - A young Seattle couple are harassed by paranormal visitors when they move into an apartment where a vicious drug battle once took place (1)
Spirits of the Dead - A spooky horse barn is the center of otherworldly events as a dispossessed spirit attempts to control a assemblage of ghosts (2)
Where Evil Lurks - A complex haunting takes place in the Ozarks where a daemon that was summoned in a historically haunted house viciously attacks a young family (4)
Spellbound - Not a typical A Haunting episode. It mainly deals with the relationship between a son who becomes a devote Christian (and eventually a minister) and his mother who practices Wicca (1)
Echoes of the Past - A family moves into an ancient Vermont home where various spirits, mainly those of two little girls, interact with them (1)
Ghost Hunter - The 15 year old son of a ghost hunter becomes possessed while helping her paranormal research team investigate an old cemetery (1)
Stalked by Evil - A spirit that lurks in the closet of a Texas home becomes obsessed with the teenage daughter of the new residents (3)
Casa de los Muertos - A Latino guitarist and family move into an Arizona house haunted by the spirit of a white supremacist (1)
Monster in the Apartment - A young man who dabbles in the occult eventually becomes possessed by a demon and begins to stalk his female roommate (2)

"My mom and I are avid fans of this series, and I have purchased the complete Seasons 1-4 for her [as the discounted price on Amazon makes it a value buy]. I also have the individual seasons. The series stands out because of its high production quality, credible reenactments, and also the eyewitness accounts interspersed with interviews with paranormal experts.
In Season 4, the episodes continue to engage and creep out viewers [in no particular order]:
Ghost Hunter - a paranormal investigator brings her son along to a cemetery and finds that a demon has attached itself to her son.
Stalked by Evil - a mother must do all she can to save her daughter from the clutches of a determined ghost.
Casa De Los Muertos- a father has to draw on his Puerto Rican roots to save his son from an unearthly entity.
Monster in the Apartment - a woman tries to save her cancer-stricken friend from an evil ghost.
Legend Trippers - high school friends find themselves at the mercy of unearthly forces when they investigate a local cemetery.
Spirits of the Dead- a family at a horse-riding school have to battle an unearthly entity.
Where Evil Lurks - a young family faces a demon that threatens their home and lives.
Spellbound - a single mom inadvertently summons an evil entity.
Echoes of the Past- a young couple find their home haunted by spirits, and must do what they can to save their young daughter from the spirits' clutches.
Dark Wrath - a woman faces an evil force bent on destroying her family.
The Awakening - a woman struggles to come to terms with her son's Irag mission, and at the same time is haunted by spirits.
The Calling - a new bride finds her marriage in peril when her psychic abilities attract a restless spirit.
The Apartment - a newly married couple discover the dark history of their apartment.
Once again, the DVDs have no special features, but the stories themselves are engaging, so it did not make much of a difference to me.
An excellent ending.

"I just finished watching H4 and....just like the previous three seasons...
What's not to love?
My favorite episode has to be "Dark Wrath". I jumped off the couch more than once during that episode. :)
Yes, the series ended. :(
Not cool, bring it back Discovery!!!!
