Each episode tells one real horror story, based on true testimonies, brought to life through straight-to-camera documentary interviews and beautiful scripted drama. The spine of each film is the gripping retrospective narrative of a series of traumatic events and horrifying happenings – inexplicable paranormal activity and weird ghostly goings-on - which happened to real, ordinary people. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE SERIES.
1. The Witches Prison
A moving story of a single mother’s battle to protect herself and her defenceless baby boy from a house with a tormented past.
2. Terror in the Woods
Two prank-obsessed teenagers escape suburban boredom into their spook-prone imaginations.
3. Ghost in the Wall
A young mother fears that her late father-in-law has returned from ‘the other side’ with a horrific plan: to steal her children.
I liked episodes 1-3. They did scare me a bit, but not enough to keep me awake at night. It's like listener stories in ghost story podcasts. I did not like the ending of the last one at all. I have a high suspicion the father suffered serious depression and that's probably why he didn't really get better at the end (sorry I had to take away a skull for that.)
Can't wait to see all my horror stories.
I am not a fan of LOUD wanna-be scary SOUND FXs.... This hurts my ears to watch, literally... Loud scratching noise, loud violins, loud bangs, loud screams.. worthless jump scare attempts the whole timer with people talking about their "oopsie-woopsie" & "oozie-woosie" feelings.. (Gagging...) the same old 'you know "That Feeling you get when you're scared" mumbo jumbo.. Yeah, yeah we all know but NOT storytelling at it's finest by a very long long distance shot.. Bugs don't scare me and loud ear-piercing bangs don't either.... LAME
Just watched episode 3, editing style and some tired horror tropes got the best of me. Similar to series like A Haunting, with similar plots and the same overused gimmicks. Meh. Could be a good introduction to the basics if you're new to the genre though.
