PARANORMAL STATE  (A & E) Season One

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.

Sixth Sense, The Name, The Devil in Syracuse, Dark Man, Vegas, Pet Cemetery, and The Cemetery some of the story titles you can look forward to viewing.

Addition DVDs that may interest you are:

Afraid of the Dark (History Channel)

Throughout the history of humankind, the absence of light has been a powerful trigger for both real and imagined terror.  In this thrilling look at one of humanity’s most pervasive fears, go back to a time before the invention of artificial light and experience a world petrified in darkness.  Discover how our ancestors cowered in caves to keep from being eaten alive, and how in the Middle Ages, brutal bandits went on the prowl and roadside ditches became terrifying death traps.  Find out why many people staunchly believed in the nocturnal prowess of the devil, werewolves, and vampires, and get a rare glimpse at what the nighttime sky would have looked like before the advent of the artificial light.

Afraid of the Dark takes you around the globe to places where real night still exists, and examines the modern-day human response when life is suddenly thrust into darkness during blackouts.

Salem Witch Trials (History Channel)

For the incoming Puritan settlers, 17th-century New England was a place filled with fear and uncertainty.  It was an environment that-coupled with a backdrop of religious extremism-bred an anxiety so intense it ultimately turned deadly.

As a result of the 1692 Salem witch trials, 19 men and women were hanged and one man was “pressed” to death following the untenable accusations made by several young girls from the Massachusetts Bay Colony.  When the hysteria finally subsided and new community leaders came into power, apologies were made and in 1711 legislation was passed that offered some financial restitution to the families of the victims.

This program brought to you by THE HISTORY CHANNEL provides a comprehensive account of the actual events and examines the possible causes behind this highly notorious and puzzlingly complex period in early American history.
