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.

    What was up with the constant static interference in the cameras setup by AE. Terrible fx and annoying . The mass.show zoomed on a pic of a girl in a window (fake) but made worse by purposely obscuring it. Poorly hiding their bad work.

  • candace

    Terrible show. Watched first 30 min of first episode and deleted them all from my dvr.

  • mrskilogulf

    The 1966 Mustang episode seems BLATANTLY staged! SO not interesting…YAWN!

  • Matt

    What a joke!! Haha shows are such crap these dates!

  • evodbor

    All were sketchy, but the last episode was so horribly contrived it is disappointing. Shows like this screw it up for those shows that are “reality”. Shame on you A&E.

  • Mike

    What a joke of a show. Obviously staged, I taped all three episodes and only made it through the first 20 minutes of one show before I finally deleted all three.

  • joe

    Flipping through the channels and saw this show. At first I thought it was some sort of meta comedy poking fun at ghost shows. Unfortunately it isn’t. It almost angers me that someone could be so deluded into believing this show.

  • David

    VVVVVEEEERRRRYYYY Disappointed! I agree with most of that which has been posted thus far. I love the A&E Network and it’s programming, usually. The only program that I have watched that was worse (recently) is the show “Mountain Monsters.” C’mon Maaaaaaaaan!?!?!?!?!?!

  • Deeeedeee

    Yeah I’m like 10 minutes in to the Quincy one; the first one I’ve seen and it seems WICKED staged/ edited. Like why would there be footage from however many years before of him bringing home that car, especially with close ups of everyone’s face and reactions, not to mention the “ever so convenient” statement from the youngest that the car was scary!? At least TRY to make me believe it, lol! They couldve at least just said that part was a reemactment instead of insulting our intelligence.Hopefully it will get better, we’ll see.

  • Kjs

    Wow, what a joke! New low….

  • brad

    watching episode about the haunted El Camino and the guys family made him get rid of it. Supposedly have cams set up 24/7 in all bedrooms and areas of the house.

    looks like the copied straight out of Paranormal string of movies. Cutting back and forth between real filming in present and video cam in present.

    looks to contrived, i think its fake. Problem is, if yo are a medium or psychic or para investigator and you are one those people in this story, whats it going to do to your rep, with in the Ghost Hunter community. Ruin credibility

  • Angelo

    It wasn’t a66 mustang that jack bought its a 78 or 81 .chevy elcameo

  • Angelo

    Wow slaming doors . .orbes..lights turning on and off not impressed

  • KoSo

    It’s like A&E and producers didn’t even try to keep it real; if you’re going to stage a “reality” show at least have the decency to not treat your audience like morons who’d believe this crap.

  • Soulsandspirits.com

    Wow- I am in agreement with everyone here- at first this felt like “real” stuff going on, then when none of the “amazing evidence” on video of things happening wasn’t acknowledged by ANYONE (ie: producers rewinding the tape and showing someone what they caught) I knew it was fake. The casting call for this show was shady- u can find it on the internet, “looking for families with BiG personalities who have paranormal activity, compensation provided.” Def discredits the real paranormal community such as myself. Very disappointing indeed. No one captures flying orbs, slamming doors, and bubbling bloody basements without sharing the evidence with the people living with it! Shame on you A and E!

  • Blade

    It’s just a tad bit fake don’t ya think?
    When they crushed the El Camino it wasn’t even the same car…No clear coat, different steering wheel, ect. Come on now geesh…SMH.

  • Jan

    I watched the Shuman family episode about the El Camino. It had to be scripted, it was just so unbelievable to me. As much as I like paranormal shows, I’ll pass on seeing anymore episodes. “A Haunting” is so much better and convincing. Huge disappointment A & E!

  • Jan

    Blade, good point. Also, it was supposed to be filmed in the span of 12 days with the camera crew there, right? That car wasn’t even running when it was delivered to their house, so I’m supposed to believe, Jack had got the car in running condition in that time? (Yeah, right!)

  • Jeremy

    I’m actually a real paranormal investigator and a sensitive. This show is sooooo unbelievabley hoakey!!!! Go Go Luckey Entertainment… you ARE lucky…to get A&E to pay you for this crack-pot show!!!

  • dolly

    So fake! WTG A&E stupid stupid stupid.
