"Although the material presented is fairly interesting, the price of this DVD is much too high for the length (45 minutes total) of the disc. Something along the line of $9.00 would have been much more reasonable. Three separate "hauntings" are presented. Details of each are shown, followed by efforts to explain the causes. There are no extras....only the basic 45 minute program. Recommend that one wait until this comes to the nearest video rental store or, perhaps, acquire it via Netflix."
A look at paranormal phenomena from both sides of the fence

""Unexplained - Hauntings" was originally aired on the History channel and runs only about 46 minutes. It takes a unique approach to the paranormal occurrences portrayed in that it presents expert arguments for and against these occurrences. There are three case studies covered here - the first is about the Brown family whose house is reputedly haunted by the ghost of a suicide, an elderly man who hasn't found peace in death. The real-life occupants of the house are featured as is the case in all three stories, and these people truly believe the restless spirit of a previous occupant inhabits the house. At the end of the story, various field experts provide their arguments either in support of or against the haunting.
The second story is a haunting in New Brunswick. A family experiences disturbing paranormal events and most horrific of all ,the hauntings continue to follow them as they move homes multiple times. Here too, experts weigh in at the end with their theories as to whether they believe in the hauntings or not.
The last story is about a family residing in a log cabin in Colorado - they believe their home is a 'portal' to another world where spirits travel through frequently. Here too various field experts - a parapsychologist, a historian, a psychologist etc provide their opinions as to whether they believe the hauntings are authentic or not.
Thuogh I found this show interesting, it wasn't as riveting as some other shows especially the "A Haunting" series, and also, the price of the DVD here seems too costly for what you get [I watched mine on Netflix]. Other than that, I feel this would engage those who are interested in the paranormal."
