As my fascination in the paranormal realm continues to grow, I’m continuously on the hunt for new shows and series that document real-life experiences with the supernatural. I discovered a series on Netflix titled Haunted last week, and after completing the six-episode season, I thought I would share my opinion of the series with you in case you’re interested in viewing it.
The show is a documentary style depiction of real people and what they claim are true stories regarding experiences with the supernatural. Most of the episodes portray individuals who have encountered ghosts and demons, though one testimony concentrates on the presence of a poltergeist in a basement, and another an alien abduction.
I’ll be honest I’m saying that if you’re not interested in paranormal and supernatural encounters, or if you’re skeptical of these experiences, I do not recommend watching the show. If you’re like me, however, and find other-worldly entities interesting, you’ll likely enjoy this one.
I found the series to interview a variety of individuals, both young and old, men and women, all from the U.S. Something I found to be intriguing is that a majority of the interviewees explained that their experiences occurred when they were children, and I’ve read several accounts detailing how children are often more susceptible to encountering paranormal happenings.
My biggest issue with the series is how pretty well each episode concluded. Most of the episodes ended with serious cliffhangers, and a lot of unanswered questions, and there was no follow-up with these people who told their stories.
Overall, I enjoyed this series, however, I wish there were more episodes in the first season. Perhaps a second season will turn up in the future, but until then, I’ll continue looking for new and upcoming series to keep me occupied. Sleep tight, folks!
