Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sometimes-scary docudrama series tells real people's stories about experiences with the paranormal. Episodes include dramatic re-enactments of ghostly appearances, children being frightened in bed, angry arguments between parents, and occasional injuries as a result of contact with spirits. Stories also sometimes include potentially upsetting family details -- like a father becoming a heavy drinker or a mother becoming seriously ill. Some episodes contain religious elements, such as a priest performing an exorcism and asking Jesus Christ to cleanse a house.

Sexual Content

Adults shown sleeping in bed together, teen couples hug briefly. Nothing sexual.


The type of violence depends on the episode, but one included a ghost strangling a woman, glass shooting out of a cabinet and injuring a woman's face (with blood), and household objects flying around a room breaking on walls and people.
