There's hell to pay, and Jack and Katrina Weidman are on a mission to find out why. The intrepid paranormal investigators are led to haunted locales where sinister spirits display a vendetta against anyone in their presence.
There is no Casper or friendly ghosts in these 13 new hour-long episodes. The deeper the history the deeper the haunting. Exploring the shadowy corners of Detroit's Eloise Psychiatric Hospital, the historic Savannah Theatre, Staten Island, New York's Kreischer Mansion, Philadelphia's Fort Mifflin and the infamous Missouri State Penitentiary, among others, Jack and Katrina confront disturbing activity and malevolent entities that have left those that crossed their path shaking in fear.
Using their paranormal expertise, advanced scientific equipment and a network of specialists, including a team of psychic mediums, the duo search for evidence and answers as to who, or what, is wreaking such havoc on the living.
"This is a creepy AF new season, twisted and wildly unexpected," said Jack. "The locations were bottled up with activity that hit us almost immediately. The vibes were dark and tense, and there were many times when I was seriously scared of what we might encounter."
"These places had an intense energy you could feel the minute you walked in," added Katrina. "Just being inside some of these buildings elicited an unexplainable physical discomfort. So many of the locations this season are just eerie and unnerving."
In the season opener, the pair travel to New Castle, Pennsylvania, home to Hill View Manor – a shuttered nursing home where former patients are rumoured to live on after death. The sprawling complex has almost as many spirits as it does rooms. Constant reports of scratching, chronic dizziness and shadow apparitions have turned the building's new owner, Carrie, from a paranormal skeptic into a full-blown believer. With her original plans to turn the property into condos no longer viable, she is hoping Jack and Katrina can figure out what exactly is going on within Hill View's walls. But to get to the bottom of what's feeding the manor's dark forces, the duo will first have to face the Creeper – a malevolent shadow creature bent on scaring the living hell out of its victims.
