Plot Synopsis

Using first-person accounts, re-enactments, and commentary from paranormal investigators, priests, shamans, and psychic mediums, A HAUNTING tells tales of families traumatized by forces unknown, including exorcisms, possessions, and hauntings. From children to pets and from atheists to the faithful, these are true stories of unrelenting terror that knows no bounds -- sometimes these paranormal figures leave impressions so intense they leave people traumatized for the rest of their lives. Each 60-minute episode reveals the supernatural experiences of one family, including these people in Season 5: Betty Johnson and her family, who faced supernatural threats and unexpected financial distress in their new residence in rural Michigan, but, even after moving, her oldest child experienced bloody visions and was physically attacked; Kathie Sheats exorcised her own demon after a priest, a psychic, and a paranormal investigator failed to rid her and her home of an evil presence; and Connecticut child safety specialist Bob Baker devoted his life to protecting children from natural and supernatural harm, but smoked out a demon by himself to reclaim his mother's home and his own life; and many more tales of real-life terror. In October 2012, after being off the air and in limbo for nearly five years, A HAUNTING returned from the dead for a new season on a new network, Destination America.
