American Hauntingvia press release:




NEW YORK, NY – JUNE 28, 2013 – A&E Network premieres the chilling three-hour special event “American Haunting,” entering in to the tortured lives of three separate families residing in haunted homes. Back-to-back-to-back episodes premiere on Saturday, July 27 at 8PM ET/PT.


“American Haunting” takes a unique look inside the terrifying lives of families encountering paranormal phenomena within their own homes, witnessing first-hand the frightening incidents they experience daily. Surveillance cameras set up throughout the houses capture every moment of the eerie activity that transpires and document the damaging toll it takes on the families’ lives. As they attempt to regain control of their homes, the families call on psychics, demonologists, paranormal investigators and exorcists to help them fight back against the malevolent spirits.


The premiere episode of “American Haunting” introduces the McGlone family of Grayson, Kentucky. Their dream home is becoming a nightmare as the family experiences frightening paranormal activity on a daily basis. In addition to moving objects, strange voices and inexplicable smells, members of the family report being physically attacked during the night.


At 9PM, the members of the Rudis family of Irving, Illinois suffer mysterious growls and footsteps, inexplicable scratches and multiple demonic apparitions. Afraid to sleep alone in her own bedroom, the family's teenage daughter has for years spent her nights on the living room couch, rarely sleeping through the night.


At 10PM, the Schuman family of Quincy, Massachusetts believes their haunting began when their dad Jack purchased a 1966 Mustang with a violent past. With tensions running high in the Schuman home, Jack must decide between his beloved car and saving his family.


A screener of the first episode of “American Haunting” is available at press.aenetworks.com.

  • me

    wassted MY TIMe

  • Wiscompton

    The “McGlone” episode seems to have at its center a schizophrenic 16 year old goth girl who sees, hears, and feels things that aren’t there and mutilates herself. Either that or its totally fake. Not sure yet.

  • mcpickle

    It’s disappointing and looks VERY staged. Makes the paranormal community look bad. Angry people would “act” out an episode like this.

  • aphex

    clearly this show is fake!

  • satan


  • sean

    weak staged show a waste of my time…I am so disappointed.

  • joe

    So far looks fake

  • lame

    This sucks! I thought this was supposed to be real, even the description says ‘documentary.” Bs. Very disappointed…

  • jay

    sooo not real. everything is so hokey & it’s stupid! no way any of this is real. talk about giving the paranormal genre a bad rep!

    shame on A&E for airing this BS! I guess they think we’re so gullible we’d believe this crap.

  • joe

    So now a ghost or demon goes inside that chick and wails lol fake

  • Amg13

    Really??? Could they have at least TRIED to make this seem real? SO obviously fake! Grrrrr…

  • idiot stick

    absolute garbage. so fake it’s out of control. way over the top.

  • joe

    The conjurning looked more real than this and we know it was staged lol

  • Rob

    The show bills itself as a documentary but is 100% fake. A&E have sunk to a new low.

  • allen

    Come on A&E. This show is just crap. All your fake “reenactments” and video footage is so horribly staged. I do not doubt that the families had TRUE paranormal events. It is too bad you think us all to be stupid. This show belongs with the same “Fake-umentary” about mermaids. A&E you need to work on better shows. Better screenings to gauge real reactions of the audience. Time to switch to pawn stars

  • watchingstagedshow

    So fake, but at least it has some entertainment value for my pre-teen. (We’ve been laughing pretty hard). So far it seems like they’ve been following a formula.

  • jacki

    How disappointing! Fake footage, poor camera control, acting and obvious fakery. If there is no real documentation don’t even put it on. The house that was trashed while the cameras were rolling would have been good to show us, don’t you think? Please keep it real!

  • GiveMeABreak

    Wow. What an absolute embarrassment of a show. What a ridiculous, stupid, moronic, idiotic,…I…I don’t even know. I can’t even come up with enough adjectives to describe this pathetic joke. Even the most die-hard, overly gullible, simple-minded individual could not enjoy this pure tripe. I would have been better off watching an episode of My Little Pony while drinking a bleach cocktail than watching . Please…PLEASE don’t waste your time on this, not even as a joke. It’s just not worth it.

  • Katy

    I think the episodes are pretty good. I do wonder about the flashing video…a little too much like Paranormal Activity. I think they should show more on what happened in the 9pm episode to the guy who was laying on the floor toward the end. Definitely worth watching more episodes.
