Halloween

Investigator Theresa Argie and journalist Eric Olsen team up to take you on a first-person tour of some of America's most active paranormal hotspots. Experience the crawl through the death tunnel where visitors have reported sightings of an inhuman creature that creeps along the walls and ceilings. Walk the decks of the Queen Mary with the dozens of souls that met their ends in watery graves. And get to know the spirits that wait in prisons, mansions, lunatic asylums, and even a stately old hotel.
