Animals are commonly thought to be more sensitive to the spirit world than humans are. Both in this world and beyond, animals have often been the focus of spirit encounters. This chilling series delves into the frightening true stories of animal hauntings. "The Haunted" is a chilling and frightening show featuring true horror stories about animals and the paranormal. Each program features one or two stories recounted in past tense by the people who actually experienced them. Cinematic recreations serve to heighten the drama caused by animal contact with the unexplainable and to bring the witnesses' testimonies to life.

Hope this helps anyone who might have wondered, as I did, which shows were included in this collection. The back covers also states the total run time is 405 minutes compared to the 430 minutes stated in product details. I haven't timed it and really doesn't matter to me because I enjoy the series so much.
Its great to see the interaction of not only when ghosts affect people, but when they affect animals. They are seen as guardians and it would be terrifying if we could see what they see (and feel!).
Each story is intricately interlaced with actual paranorml footage (video and EVP) investigations, worthy re-enactments and actual interviews of the families involved. If you liked the 'A Haunting series 1-4' then you'll love these fantastic true stories. A nice twist and different angle to standard ghost documentaries.
The only sad part is some of the animals are severely affected which is not nice to see, but its no different I guess to 'anything' a demonic entity chooses to attack.
A 'must add' to your collection!
I give the 10 episode dvd release (selling for $14) 4 and a half to 5 stars. Since you can't give 1/2 ratings, lets's say 5 stars. This review is for this item.
The 5 star release has a cover with an adorable (yeah, I know) pit bull with beautiful worried looking eyes, looking over his shoulder at paranormal light coming in a window. This is the 5-star release to buy.
The 3 episode dvd (selling for up to $20) is the one NOT to buy.
(It has a different dog on the cover--a Irish Setter or Labrador-type dog.)
I very much like this series, and would rate the content and entertainment value of the series and episodes very highly. They are somewhat dramatized and scary presentations of described true occurances.
The episodes use interviews with the actual people involved, film and show you the actual locations, play actual video and EVPs recorded during the hauntings (if they exist), and are well presented and thought thru. It uses dramatic recreations, using actors, for some events, but this adds to the tension and chill factor that many people look for in these type shows. The people under paranormal attack usually had called in the local paranormal investigative group, or someone, to help and these actual people are interviewed in the episodes about their experiences, too. So, the shows provides a good balance to both those looking only to be entertained, but also, to those trying to understand more detailed answers. Each episode has a different set of people, and a different investigative group, so this adds variety, scope, and changing scenes.
Animal Planet tries to tie each haunting into some connection with animals, as the series was made for Animal Planet. For some episodes, there are extensive involvment of animals (pets or farm animals), some less so, but so what--they are good cases. Each episode is about an hour long (less commercial time). Many episodes present 2 different cases at different locations, some just one.
They are very good entries into the contempory universe of Ghost/ Paranormal shows, playing on TV.
Wikipedia lists 20 episodes for Season 1, with season 2 playing on cable right now (late 2011). The current 10 episode release is the first half of season 1--in order.
I assume we will see the second half of Season 1 on a separate dvd release (also 10 episodes) at some future point in 2012 ?
The series is very enjoyable, well-presented, with a high believability factor. If you like paranormal TV shows, this one is a keeper.
