America’s Most Haunted – Official Selection of the 2013 Chicago Paranormal Film Festival!

americas most haunted

This is the story of the popular ghost hunting show “America’s Most Haunted”. They’re not here to just communicate or take some pictures. They’re here to kick unwanted ghosts out. Their methods may be questionable, and their “proof” may not hold up to careful scrutiny, but people seem to like it and they keep getting paid by their sponsors.

However, on this particular episode, the AMH crew has come across something they’ve never dealt with before… A place that may actually be haunted. Even though this could be more than they can handle, rest assured that Leon Falco, the shows fearless host, has a plan.

“America’s Most Haunted” is a horror/comedy that’s scarier than “Ghostbusters” and funnier than “Poltergeist” which all adds up to a good time in the theater!
