HAUNTED AMERICA TOURS: Top 100 Essential DVD'S For Ghost Hunters And Paranormal Enthusiast

This week's top ten best selling DVD's based on sales through Haunted America Tours:


The Possessed Directed by Philip Adrian Booth; Christopher Saint Booth; The Booth Brothers

The Possessed Directed by Philip Adrian Booth; Christopher Saint Booth; The Booth Brothers


The belief in possession by evil spirits plagued the 18th century. Madness and hysteria spread classifying the mentally ill as Being under the control of the Devil. These sad misfits became the victims of bizarre exorcisms or Casting Out Rituals. Banished from society they were locked away inside brutal asylums. Some called them Angels, others called them Devils, they all were branded, The Possessed! Based on the True Story, The Watseka Wonder, America's first documented possession of 1877. A chilling journal of a 13-year-old girl from the small town of Watseka, IL who became possessed by spirits of the insane dead!

The DVD much like the documentary itself is bursting with incredible extras in the form of features and much more. Sharing everything from the raw footage, behind the scenes, galleries and even a personal filmmaker's video diary. Remember this is the unseen version not seen when televised on the Sci-Fi Channel, so in essences you get over 60 minutes more. If you are truly a fan of the paranormal, or a ghost hunter at heart this is the grand daddy of them all. Happy Haunting! --Cinema DVD Reviews

In true Booth Brothers style, this DVD is dark, both literally and content wise. They take you through the case, and also go on side trips to visit contemporary teens who were possessed; Including some discussion of the real woman from the Emily Rose case. The trip through the Watseka case shows us the Victorian age death of a teenage girl and several years later the possession of another girl also in Watseka by the girl who died. Be it true or not, this DVD is entertaining and very very creepy. It's worth watching and keeping in your collection to show for Halloween or other events that warrant the watching of scary DVDs. Sci-Fi Channel is the outlet where the Booth's films are shown. --Las Vegas Examiner Tara King

Angels to Some, Devils to others, no we're not talking about the Hellraiser films. Our journey is an investigation in the form of the recent The Possessed, a documentary covering specific cases of reported possessions. Several instances are featured though the primary one comes in the form of The Watseka Wonder. A rather bizarre case that extends not one generation but an additional possession of another in town. Mary Roff who died at the young age of 18 was a sufferer of seizure episodes and violent fits all her life. In 1877, things were different with many of these case easily dismissed as insanity without the present medial knowledge we have today. Mary Roff is explored, researched and contacted though psychic mediums. The results are startling. The Booth Brothers put together another fine documentary piece that explores this very phenomena. In the course of the film, we also hear about cases such as the Annilease Michel (Emily Rose ) case, Dewi Morlaine, Marcus Tallbull, Kelly March and Michael Jones (who dies 26 times as a primi baby). Each of these cases are documented possession cases that are still highly controversial to this day. The Possessed fits perfectly in with the level of consumer interest in all things supernatural. The product is well done and the story is equally impressive. A haunting piece indeed. --Horror New Net

Timeless Media Group, in cooperation with New Dominion Pictures, is proud to present this 9 DVD set of the first four seasons of A Haunting, 39 episodes in all. As seen on the Discovery Channel, each of these one-hour episodes explore the most mysterious and baffling true cases of haunting's, visitations and ghostly, ghastly doings ever assembled. These stories of demon possession, the unquiet ghosts of the dead, and many more tales of the supernatural will take you to the edge of reason and beyond. Each episode is complete with interviews of the victims of these eerie and unexplainable paranormal events. Teams of parapsychologists try to discover the roots of these strange happenings and to put the demons to rest, with exorcisms, cleansing rites and strange incantations, sometimes having unexpected results! As you explore the darker regions of the unseen and unsettling world of spirits, poltergeists and phantoms, you may find yourself becoming convinced that things are not what they seem, and indeed, are much more sinister and scary than you ever thought possible.


Fans of the show enjoy the cinematic effects and the actual terrifying true stories of the paranormal told by those who experienced real-life horror tales. The reenactments at times leave al little to the imaginations but in whole the show offers what is considered paranormal truths.

A Haunting is an American television series that airs on the Discovery Channel and Discovery Science channel. The series' episodes are comprised of narrations and dramatic reenactments based on various accounts of paranormal encounters and experiences. A Haunting originally aired in 2005 and has since produced four seasons totaling 39 episodes.

A Haunting began as two feature-length specials, "A Haunting in Connecticut" and "A Haunting in Georgia", that were developed by Allison Erkelens, who also served as head writer. The specials were executive produced by Tom Naughton and Nicolas Valcour for New Dominion Pictures. Based on strong ratings, A Haunting became a one-hour series on The Discovery Channel produced by Larry Silverman.

Most episodes present several accounts of paranormal experiences through cinematic reenactments which are accompanied by commentary from eyewitnesses and investigators themselves. According to Silverman, the show's writers search for stories and then filter out accounts with enough substantial content. He has further added that the episodes are strictly based on the accounts of victims, although the Discovery Channel did compel the show's producers to sanitize certain case histories due to their graphic sexual content. A Haunting has covered several incidents, including traditional haunting's, demonic attacks, possessions, and cryptic visions. The series covers incidents from various locations across the United States, as well as three episodes that were set in England, Ireland and Taiwan. Episodes are usually set in houses or apartments, and also farms, commercial areas, and even vast outdoor regions.

Episodes within the series follow a frequently recurring pattern, in which victims of hauntings begin noticing peculiar incidents that gradually become more frequent and bizarre. Denial is most often the first reaction. As the situation escalates, however, and every possible conventional explanation is explored and found wanting, they either contact a paranormal investigator, a member of the clergy, or a spiritual medium for assistance. In some cases, victims are able to successfully resolve their paranormal issues, while in others, victims are forced to vacate their residence. Certain episodes have also featured commentary from famed demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, who have actually investigated some of A Haunting's cases. The episode, "The Dark Side", was dedicated to the memory of Ed, who passed away in 2006.


3. Paranormal State Season 1

DVD Release Date: April 29, 2008

Paranormal State Season !

Paranormal State - Season 1 Buy it here Now!

Paranormal State is the very first series that explores paranormal investigations through the eyes and minds of college students. This series follows the dramatic life of Penn State University college student Ryan Buell and the other student members of one of the first university sanctioned Paranormal Research Society (PRS) as they seek to find the truth behind terrifying real life mysteries. Although the members of PRS are your basic college kids - dealing with the problems of school, dating, and finding their way in the world - they are definitely looking into other worlds as well, working on cases that include poltergeists, haunting and the darkest areas of the unknown. Each week they are contacted for help by outside parties ranging from The Catholic Church to ordinary families who are terrified by something supernatural happening in their lives.

Paranormal State show depicts the students' investigations of paranormal activity and supernatural phenomena. Though many die hard's disagree with their tactics, explanation and advice the show is very popular. Each episode of the show is outlined by the production team first, co-executive producer Tina Gazzerro has said, to ensure that a producible episode will result. "We try to identify where we get our discovery moments, our 'Ah-ha!' moments," Gazzerro told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Information about the event under investigation may also be held back from the students in order to create dramatic tension, and only situations which will have a conclusive outcome are investigated. "We may have information we don't give to [the PRS team]," Gazzerro said, "but we need to make sure [the episode is] producible." Story arcs are also outlined for each "character" on the show, and the production team has publicly expressed its hope that a romantic relationship will develop between Buell and one of the women on the series. The production team and the show's researchers say that no pressure is put on the research team to act in certain ways or make paranormal discoveries.

A&E had high hopes for the new series. Cable television reality shows about the paranormal require only about a quarter of the budget for a scripted show of the same length. They also draw much-coveted younger viewers, and skew slightly more female than male (a difficult demographic to draw for most cable networks not explicitly targeting women).


The show debuted on December 10, 2007, with 2.5 million viewers watching the first two back-to-back episodes, making it the third-most watched show on A&E since 2004. The cable network reported that this included 1.6 million people aged 18 to 49 (a highly coveted demographic by broadcasters and advertisers). It also included 1.5 million viewers in the 25-to-54 age range, A&E's target demographic.

The show's second season began on July 28, 2008 on A&E.

Its visual, musical, and editorial style, was inspired by MTV's Fear

Some reviewers have strongly criticized the high production values which others praise. As one otherwise positive review noted, "The biggest drawback to the series is that it's over-produced, with too many eerie sounds and visual effects. Is the heavy breathing something picked up by PRS microphones, or is it a sound effect added after the fact by the show's producers?"


Critics have also pointed out that the show lacks visual punch. People interviewed in the show declare that they "feel" a spirit next to them, but nothing is shown to the TV viewer. In the series debut, the audience is told that a young boy sees ghosts, but the audience is not able to see any evidence of this. "The most compelling footage seems to come more from the editing room than beyond the grave," noted one industry trade publication. Reviewers say the show also fails to effectively integrate and utilize the team's (apparently) sophisticated audio and video equipment to heighten tension or help support their claims of paranormal activity.

As of January 3rd 2008, Ryan Buell claims the demonic entity is no longer following him. In a Q&A section of the Penn State Paranormal Research Society's forums, he responded to a question on the topic by stating, "I haven't been troubled by any bunnies (the PRS calls demons "bunnies") as of late. There came a point in my life where I let go of some of that baggage. When it comes to that whole side, there's a back story that involves my group dealing with a case three years ago. I kind of reached a resolution with that. Coincidentally, the bunny tried to make another cameo appearance when we were filming the final investigation of the season, but we just told it to go to you-know-where. I hope it makes the cut!"

Paranormal State has been the subject of several controversies. Such as the Christian influence of the show, or whether the show is depicting real or faked paranormal activity, and whether the show is documentary or scripted entertainment.


In the episode entitled "School House Haunting," which first aired on January 28, 2008 the "client" whose home the team investigated Shannon Sylvia, a cast member of another paranormal show, Ghost Hunters International. On January 29, 2008, Ryan Buell posted an entry to his blog[ on the Official Penn State Paranormal Research Society Web site concerning his view of psychics and, in particular, the inclusion of psychic Chip Coffey on the show. In the comment section of the blog, several people questioned Shannon Sylvia's inclusion in the series, asking why a high-profile paranormal investigator would hire the Penn State Paranormal Research Society to investigate her property when she essentially has a team of her own. In his blog, Ryan mentions that it was his visit which brought Shannon Sylvia into the study of the supernatural as an investigator, herself.

4. Children Of The Grave

Produced and Directed by Philip Adrian Booth and Christopher Saint Booth (The Booth Brothers) DVD Release Date: October 15, 2007

This the highly-anticipated follow-up to the Booth Brothers 2006 documentary Spooked: The Ghosts of Waverly Hills Sanatorium. This haunted Indie film is one of the finest that I have seen in many years. And so like its predecessor this film delivers more non-stop chills from the very first frame. Many thought the Booth's could not top Spooked The Ghosts Of Waverly Hills Sanatorium their first paranormal documentary outing, but in truth they have surely surpassed it. Many herald The Booths work as a new breed of great paranormal TV to explore.

The Booth's unique camera perspective and fantastic direction, editing and score are part of the haunted magical mind's eye that they possess collectively. It is "The Must See" of all that is haunted! More then just a cut above the rest it sets a new standard that many will find hard to reach.

This movie is now what I would call a Paranormal Classic Indie Film!
