GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN

Shepherdstown is renowned for being the oldest town in West Virginia. It is also quietly referred to as the most haunted town in America, because it has always been home to inexplicable hauntings, bizarre accidents and unsolved crimes. In a town of 1,700 residents, almost every single person has had an experience with the supernatural. Now, a surge of supernatural activity has forced the local police to partner with members of the paranormal community to help solve some of the town's deepest mysteries. MAK Pictures

KILLING BIGFOOT

Bobby Hamilton has been on the hunt for Bigfoot ever since encountering the monster as a child. Decades later, the world still doesn't have definitive proof of Bigfoot's existence, and that's where Hamilton, his friend Jim Lansdale, and their team - known as the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization (GCBRO) - have decided to take matters into their own hands. GCBRO is on a mission to prove once and for all that Bigfoot exists by harvesting a DNA sample for scientific evidence, even if that means killing Bigfoot to get it. Gryphon Productions

A HAUNTING

In A HAUNTING, real evil lurks in the darkest shadows and in the most ordinary places. Through spellbinding first-person accounts, each episode profiles the story of one family traumatized by unknown supernatural forces.
