Fascinating and it got me quite edgy
14 July 2003 | by savagemonkeySee all my reviews

If you get a chance to watch this program, don't miss out on it. Maybe you can miss it, but if you ever liked Sighting or any other reality program on the paranormal, this will please you.

During one of the advert breaks I went downstairs (at midnight) to get a drink of milk, and there was only one tiny light on to give slight visibility in all the halls and rooms I passed through. I was so nervous, there were windows to the outside world, and I couldn't stop thinking that something could be right outside the window. I wouldn't normally get like this, but the program had struck certain cords in my body. In my opinion, the program wasn't intending to do this (despite the "Scary" part of the name), but the authenticity of the footage, especially the poltergeist sections, helped make this a special program.

Some of the segments weren't too great, even though the program thought they were the better pieces. I'm referring to the `moving dense mist' in the basement of that mansion. Still, it wasn't "boring", just not as impressive as the other parts.

Apart from that though, the other parts were great. They showed really extraordinary footage of poltergeist activity, oozing liquids, ghostly images in photographs and an unexplained, faceless figure in a music video (when the location was completely empty at the time of filming).

Even though this was made in the year 2000, it still has the same old charms that the same type of older shows did. For example, between interviews and clips they have like 4 second video montages to set the scene. Though they could be said to be "cheesy", they still work!

Sometimes there was a little too much voice over narration, but that would be my only suggestion for *possible* future episodes that they cut down on the voice over.

A well structured program, and highly entertaining if you liked the similar programs. I'd give it 7/10, and it almost pars with the "Sightings" TV show of the early 90s.
