HAUNTD, the free-to-watch streaming platform dedicated to all things paranormal, launches this Halloween with the promise of an exclusive interview with a poltergeist.

Launching at 8pm on October 31, the platform will offer the best quality, handpicked shows, documentaries and investigations all in one place making it easier than ever to watch the paranormal content you love.

HAUNTD will bring fans of all things spooky more paranormal shows than you can shake a K-II at. The streamer's curated video platform contains only the best paranormal entertainment and is designed to make it easy to keep up with the latest content from your favourite teams, as well as helping you discover new shows you're sure to love.

Times are hard and we all have enough monthly subscriptions for streaming services, but that's where HAUNTD is different. The platform is completely free to watch. You don't need to register in order to enjoy the content on HAUNTED, but creating an account will unlock bonus features allowing you to follow shows so that you don't miss out on that next must-see ghost hunt.

To celebrate the launch of HAUNTD, the platform have put together a night of exclusive paranormal programming that kicks off from 8pm on Halloween night. The lineup includes a unique paranormal experiment which will see comedian and ghost hunter, Barry Dodds, attempt something that no one has ever dared attempt before, to interview a poltergeist.

Over the course of two days Barry, star of the movie 'The ParaPod: A Very British Ghost Hunt' and of the hugely successful ParaPod podcast series, conducted several interviews with the poltergeist that is said to reside at the infamous Black Monk house at 30 East Drive in Pontefract.

The unassuming, typical three-bedroom, semi-detached house on the Chequerfield Estate has been described by many as the most haunted house in Great Britain, and Barry openly admits that he's terrified of what resides there. The story of its haunting started in the 1960s when the family living in the house, the Pritchards, claimed they were experiencing supernatural goings on.

Barry was armed with a device designed especially by the team at HAUNTD, an experimental derivative of a radio frequency scanning device, one that is responsive to vibrational anomalies, which are believed to make it easier for spirits to communicate their intended messages through the device.

During the experiment, Barry and the team felt that there was a genuine exchange and dialogue taking place between Barry and whatever lurks at the iconic paranormal hotspot.

On Halloween night you'll be able to see for yourself exactly what happened during the experiment. Nothing has been faked, scripted, recorded after the shoot or manipulated in any way. HAUNTD have only adjusted volume levels and cut out times when nothing of significance was happening to make for a better viewing experience.

HAUNTD is actively looking for new shows and teams to add to their ever-growing library, who will benefit from the discoverability that the platform offers video creators. Any show submitted for consideration will have to pass strict quality control checks to ensure that viewers of only get the highest possible quality of content.

Barry Dodds' interview with a poltergeist premieres on HAUNTD at 8pm on October 31, kicking off a night of paranormal programming and a new way to watch and discover the ghostly content you love. You can find out more about HAUNTD by visiting the official website at
