4.0 out of 5 stars The pretender to Most Haunted's crown., 25 May 2008
This review is from: Haunted Homes - Complete Series 1 [2004] [DVD] (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.
