Hell House - A demon story featuring the renowned Ed and Lorraine Warren. One of the scariest shows of the entire series.
Gateway to Hell - A haunted nightclub built on the site of an old slaughterhouse by the Licking River which flows true north. Another one of the scariest of the series.
Hungry Ghosts - A house in Taiwan that was built to curse its inhabitants. Another series scariest.
Where Demons Dwell - A young boy is tormented by a deomonic presence and Ed and Lorraine Warren are called in. Very creepy!
Ghost Solider - A haunted photograph complicates a lonley woman's life when she finds not one but two spirits.
Fear House - A house that sends many of its occupants fleeing. One former resident attempts to help another family before its too late.
The Unleashed - A man plays with witchcraft and suffers the consequences. Very scary.

Where Evil Lurks - A family discovers that their house is a portal to hell. When one demon is banished another takes its place. Another scary one.
Casa De Los Muertos - A famous musician with the gift of sense battles a deadly ghost. I won't give away the twist of this story. Another creepy tale.
Legend Trippers - Teens are fascinated by an eerie legend in an old cemetery. Sereral groups who experienced the haunting are profiled.
A Haunting is an excellent show that will make you think twice about how to perceive the world. It is also interesting to see how the people handled what they experienced. Some turned to their faith, others turned away and many who did not believe in the paranormal now do.
The box and cases themselves are nothing special, it's a plain box with each disk in a slim case, but I sometimes think DVD seasons are a little too fancy and take up a little too much space. This is a 9 DVD set and for the size it takes up on a shelf it's great.
A few things that this set didn't do well on:
Video quality. It gets a little grainy at times, not as bad as some DVDs but you really notice it if you have a HDTV.
Chapter Markers. One advantage about DVDs is the ability to skip intros so after the first one you don't have to see the opening for every episode. Season 1, 2, and 3 had every episode as one chapter so if you hit skip then it went to the next episode. Season 4 got it correct and when you hit skip once it went right into the story, skipping the intro. I know some people don't care about this but when I watch TV I binge on it, watching a few DVDs or a few TV episodes on my Tivo device so skipping is important to me.
Overall I think the acting and locations were alright but I took off one star for quality and one star for chapter markers. I would still recommend it even with these small flaws.
EDIT: I want to add this is not the complete set, there are two movie length episodes that led to the production to these seasons. They are 'A HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT' and 'A HAUNTING IN GEORGIA'. One of them was made into a major motion picture so make sure you get the 'documentary' ones instead. They come as a double feature DVD on Amazon, only $9.99, I'm going to get that and see what it's like. I can't say much for them as I haven't watched them but I'm going to get them before next Halloween and update this review.
