A paranormal investigator hears an entity say the word "fire" -- and the investigator's house burns down a few weeks later. Also in this episode, a ghost's reflection suddenly appears next to a woman in a haunted Australian hotel; a ghost hunting group has some amazing and chilling experiences at an infamous California restaurant; a young girl's spirit is stuck inside a house; and disembodied voices and loud footsteps terrify an Ohio family.
The ghosts of the ladies who worked in an old bordello try to keep visitors out of the bedrooms where they entertained their gentlemen; investigators looking into levitations at a California farm are terrified when they discover that a spirit is among them; a ghost with a sweet tooth takes candy off the shelves at a supermarket in Australia; and a homeowner hears the disembodied voices of spirits still squabbling about a deadly altercation at the house years ago.
The shocking eyewitness accounts of terrified people whose dream homes have become nightmares are brought to life in vivid, blood-curdling style on MY HAUNTED HOUSE. Told via gripping first person interviews and strikingly crafted re-enactments, each episode of this nerve-wracking new series tells two, compelling horror stories of people literally living in terror.
