In the mood for true ghost stories? ‘Haunted’ has you covered!

Netflix continues to drop more and more spooky, quality content this October. Their newest release Haunted is a bit different in format than the others, diving into reality this time. This 6-episode series has a group of people sitting down, as one shares their own experience with ghosts and hauntings. Their narration is joined by reenactments that are creepy, and not at all cheesy. Think Unsolved Mysteries but with a darker twist.

The first episode features Jason Hawkins, who as a young boy, was tormented by a woman hanging in closet. He calls her the Woman in White, which is a classic tale of a ghostly lady, featured in the likes of Supernatural and an upcoming feature film.

His childhood is haunted by her as she visits him almost nightly, and continues to well into his teen years. As he tells his horrifying experience, he is surround by friends and family who react in horror to what he has been through.

Haunted gives the audience a bit of a unique setup that makes the viewer connect to the person giving their story. While most shows like this have the subject talking to the camera, this breaks that mold by having them in a safe space with people they care about. It allows the viewer to sort of feel as though they are part of the roundtable too.

Additionally, the series has some incredible reenactments that are truly at the level of any horror film out there today. It’s perhaps what will set this series apart from others like it, as it doesn’t shy away from being truly terrifying.
