Delve deep into the strange and the mysterious with Paranormal Research Society founder Ryan Buell and his intrepid team of investigators as they attempt to unravel inexplicable paranormal phenomena around the country. Among the weird events the supernatural sleuths examine are sixth-sense experiences, ghost sightings, demonic disturbances, and brushes with the darkest areas of the unknown.
Founded by Buell in 2001, the PRS works on cases across the country and is one of the most recognized groups of its kind in the nation. Season Two of this two-disc set from A&E includes a Pennsylvania couple bedeviled by paranormal activity in their home, an aggressive poltergeist in Maryland, and a ghostly hag nicknamed the "Lady Vampire" by the Texas family she torments.
PRS uses Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) recordings, video documentation, old-fashioned research and the help of renowned psychics, demonologists, psychologists and counselors to explore these bizarre cases in the hopes of helping frightened people who have nowhere else to turn. PARANORMAL STATE: THE COMPLETE SEASON TWO contains all 12 eerie episodes on 2 DVDs.

Your enjoyment of the reality series Paranormal State
is entirely dependent on your willingness to believe in the supernatural as a real and often physical entity in the material world; those who cannot will simply dismiss the show as so much smoke and mirrors, while those who can will find the episodes contained here chilling evidence of unknown entities and powers. College student Ryan Buell and his Paranormal Research Society are front and center again for 13 more encounters with the unknown, including crop circles ("Haunted Ranch"), poltergeists ("Shadows and Smoke"), a creature known as "Lady Vampire," headless ghosts ("The Messenger"), and a woman claiming to be possessed by demons ("Hell's Gate"). The show's technical aspects remain its chief selling point to its faithful and casual viewers alike; POV camerawork combined with horror movie-style music, editing and lighting help to underscore the creepier aspects of the investigations. However, the show remains unable to provide more than circumstantial proof of actual paranormal phenomena, and in one case--the alleged possession--their investigation appears to conflict with a genuine case of mental illness. Such problems will only bolster the claims of the program's detractors, but it appears to have no effect on its fans, who are seen in full worship mode during an appearance by the tem at Comic-Con. The latter is one of the set's few extras, which include brief interviews with the principals and a smattering of deleted scenes. --Paul Gaita
