The show was hosted by Linda Blair of the film The Exorcist. The show was narrated by Zelda Rubinstein, who is most famous for her role as clairvoyant Tangina Barrons in the Poltergeist film series. Alan Robson, a well known UK radio DJ and writer, acted as an on-site correspondent.
Sites investigated include Waverly Hills Sanatorium, Sloss Furnaces in Alabama, the Villisca Ax Murder House in Iowa, Leap Castle, Ohio University, The Anchor Hotel, the Jersey Devil, Mansfield Reformatory in Ohio, Metropolitan State Hospital (unnamed in the episode: "an abandoned mental asylum with such a terrible past we are not allowed to mention it's name," Blair narrated).
The main controversy with the show was that it was accused of fabricating some of the aired events.
A VHS video has been released. It is currently out-of-print.
