Haunted Case Files is one of the numerous shows that exist for the purpose of capitalizing on the popular interest in the paranormal. It is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, though considering the reception that it has had, interested individuals might want to prioritize some of the other paranormal shows that they have set their eyes on. Here are 10 things that you may or may not have known about Haunted Case Files:
1. Not Limited to Ghosts
Based on the name, most people would expect Haunted Case Files to focus on supposed stories of real hauntings. However, while ghosts receive a fair amount of focus in Haunted Case Files, the show also covers demons and other spirits.
2. Supposed to Be Real Stories
The stories featured on Haunted Case Files are supposed to be real incidents that have happened to the people who star on the show. As for whether the stories are actually real or not, well, that is something that viewers can form their own opinions about.
3. Features Ghost Hunters
Naturally, Haunted Case Files features ghost hunters. In short, this means the people who head into spooky-looking locations, which may or may not have ghost stories attached to them. In this as in other things, some ghost hunters are much more serious about their activities than others, though depending on the viewer’s exact TV tastes, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are more entertaining to watch.
4. Features Mediums
Besides ghost hunters, Haunted Case Files also features mediums, who would be people who claim to possess the power to serve as a bridge between humans and spirits. The spirits of those who have passed are a popular example, but there have been mediums for a wide range of entities, which is perhaps unsurprising when the practice has existed since the start of human civilization.
5. Each Episode Has Three Stories
A wide range of people have popped up on Haunted Case Files. In fact, each episode of the show contains three stories, meaning that it has covered a high number of incidents. Unfortunately, this means that Haunted Case Files can be a bit uneven, seeing as how some of its participants are much more entertaining than others.
6. Has Interviews
Much of Haunted Case Files consists of interviews with the various people who have claimed to experience the incidents covered on the show. This is one of the main reasons that the various stories can see a fair amount of range in entertainment value.
7. Has Supposedly Real Footage
Naturally, Haunted Case Files has supposedly real footage of the various incidents that are covered on the show. As for whether this footage is actually real or not, well, suffice to say that it is no better than its counterparts found at other paranormal shows. In other words, there may or may not be something there, but in most cases, the people interpreting it as a sign of something supernatural are stretching it.
8. Has Recreations
Amusingly, Haunted Case Files isn’t shy about making use of recreations of events related to the incidents covered on the show. Unfortunately, the show has a problem in that it isn’t exactly running on the most lavish production budget that can be found out there, meaning that the resulting footage isn’t necessarily the best.
9. The Producer Is Our House Media
The producer for Haunted Case Files is Our House Media. In short, it is a content creation company with offices in Toronto, Canada as well as other locations. Its aim is more or less what one would expect, which is to say, create original content for English-speaking markets in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
10. Two Original Broadcasters
Haunted Case Files had two original broadcasters. First, there was Destination America, which is a Discovery network interested in travel opportunities as well as related topics in the United States, Canada, and Latin America. The other was T+E, which is a Canadian channel that broadcasts a combination of lifestyle and entertainment programming.
