Product Description

First series of six episodes of the paranormal investigative program in which a team of psychics and other world specialists are taken to homes reported as haunted by their owners. Psychic Mia Dolan, paranormal investigator Mark Webb and academic Dr Chris French enter these homes for 48 hours to try and provide conclusive proof either way. The team carries out a series of experiments and séances to contact the spirits in the homes and find out what reason they have for their ghostly presence. They then attempt to rid the homes of these spectres to often rather alarming results. Includes the series pilot.

4.0 out of 5 stars The pretender to Most Haunted's crown. 25 May 2008
By Dante the Igniscient VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The British obsession with the paranormal has spawned several different series. Everyone knows of Most Haunted. The two spin-offs from that are Derek Acorah's Ghost Towns and Richard Felix' Haunted Locations. Now we have Haunted Homes.

The focus of Haunted Homes are ordinary families living in ordinary houses. There are no grand estates are castles here. Mia Dolan is the resident psychic, Mark Webb is the paranormal investigator and Dr. Chris French offers a sceptics opinion. Alan Rook does an excellent job of presenting the series.

Six different families open their doors to the Haunted Homes team. The Hassett family hear children's voices in their home. Doors open and objects move inexplicably. The cellar, which curiously contains a well, seems to be the focal point of the activity. After experimenting with a ouija board the Munday family begin to see the figure of a man in their house. Voices are heard and the smell of rotting fish nauseates the family. The Scriven family believe their home is haunted by the ghost of a man whose features appear to be rotting. A photograph appears to show a dark figure in a mirror. The Elvin family regularly see the figure of a man in their home. Their little boy calls him "the monster man." A camera running in their daughter's bedroom picks up a distinctive male voice. The Stevens family take photographs of their newly rennovated home only to find "faces" looking out from the upstairs windows. The spirit of a woman, at last, proves to be a nusance for the family. At the end of each episode Mia Dolan performs a clearing ceremony and offers a prayer in latin.

Unfortunately, Haunted Homes does suffer from a few paranormal T.V. cliches such as the sinister background music and hammy reconstructions. Otherwise, for fans of paranormal T.V. and at such a low price I would recommend it highly.

3.0 out of 5 stars A relatively good DVD 25 May 2007
By L. Oxby
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed watching the DVD, it does outlines the work of the talented Mia Dolan as she goes to supposingly haunted homes across the UK. with Mia being working as a Psychic for over 20 years, her work really shows and with how comfortable and focused she is. The only down side was i would have liked to have seen more footage, there wasnt really anything captured or anything out of the ordinary from making all the episodes different on this dvd and they didnt seem to do a long enough vigial for each episode, it was more of the same technique, also how it repeated conversations from the investigators on their work and definitions. I am very interested in Mia's work and would watch/read further things portrayed from her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Most Haunted 3 July 2009
Format:DVD
Each episode in this series features a family who believe their home is haunted. It begins with the family talking about what spooky things have happened to them in their house and why they think it's haunted.

Then we meet Mia Dolan and the other two experts. The meet and greet part is repeated on each episode, so it's best to wind through it after the first time (it's around 5 minutes long).

Mia is a psychic and medium. Before she meets the family, Mia uses psychometry (where a psychic holds objects belonging to a person to pick up information about them) to see if she can pick up any feelings about what's happening in their home. Then she takes a look around the house on her own and gives her impressions of the kind of presence that's there.

The second expert is a paranormal investigator with the usual gadgets and stuff, which don't pick anything up as per usual with these sorts of programmes, although I can't say I'd actually expect a spirit to register on a thermal imaging camera or set off a motion sensor! Can you imagine the chaos with burglar alarms if they did?!

Anyway, the third expert is a parapsychologist who basically always says there are no ghosts and everything the people are experiencing is in their heads. However, someone who is closed-minded to the spirit world wouldn't be able to experience anything anyway, so it's kind of a vicious circle.

The three experts and the family then spend the night in the house where they experience various things (apart from the sceptic), but you can't actually witness these for yourself and just have to take their word for it.

The best part is at the end when Mia makes contact with the entity and we get to find out a bit about them and what they are doing there.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another paranormal cash in 29 Dec 2009
Format:DVD
I've watched most of the parnormal investigation shows the have sprung up in recent years and, in my opinion, this is one of the least interesting. Nothing of any note is captured on film and the shows main focus is Mia Dolan, who describes what she is picking up at each location. That is fine if you are a believer and find that sort of thing entertaining. However, if you not a fan of of psychics/mediums and are more interested in seeing a serious scientific investigation into the paranormal then this is best avoided.
