A Haunting

August 12th, 2009 by John Wolfe

This giveaway has closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. I’ll be in touch with the winners very soon.

After taking the summer off from giving away Halloween and ghostly stuff, I’ve been looking forward to getting back into the spirit of sharing some spooky prizes. And with fall and Halloween just around the corner, what better time than the present to give a little creepiness to my awesome visitors? This time around, I’m dipping back into the paranormal pool with the Discovery Channel series “A Haunting.” A Haunting takes viewers on a documentary-style journey into true paranormal encounters of everyday people. Through reenactments and interviews, each story is brought to life, often in the same location where the original ghostly activity took place.

If you haven’t watched the series, don’t let the description fool you. A Haunting is far from presenting campy, watered-down ghost stories. I’ve been around paranormal activity on and off throughout my life (including recent encounters with disembodied voices). And I’ll admit, on more than one occasion, A Haunting has contributed to my performing 2 AM bedroom checks (with lamps and overhead lights blazing). In other words, the show has caused a lot of, “What was that?” “Who’s there?” “Now, I know that was definitely something!” :lol:

If you’re into debunking the paranormal, this is one program where you’ll have to sideline the EMF detector; sit back and enjoy the ride. No official ghost hunting takes place during the series. A Haunting is more about weaving an entertaining, spooky tale that will have you second guessing those creeks and groans that ring out from the darkness – you know the sounds that you always blame on the settling of the house. ;)

Onto the prizes — I’m giving away two brand new DVD copies of A Haunting: Seasons 1 and 2 (packaged together) to two separate winners. All guidelines for entering can be found below. Upon entering, all I ask in return is that you take a few moments to recommend this post, whether it’s via your own blog, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Stumble, or Digg account, etc.

If you don’t have a blog or an account with a social networking site, then please consider emailing the link to friends or post it on a Halloween or paranormal message board. I would really appreciate the support.

For more information on “A Haunting,” visit the Discovery Channel site or checkout the Ghost TV section in the Season of Shadows Store.

    This is one of my very favorite sites to haunt, SeasonofShadows! We were SO lucky the day you joined us on GhostDroppings. Learning a lot from you. I will mention to our site administrator…do you have a banner ad?…and I’m about to start a HauntSpace; I will definately reccommend yours as one of the best on the web! ~Pam

  6. John Wolfe Says:

    Wow! Thank you, Pam. I appreciate that so much! That’s an incredibly nice thing to hear you say. I consider myself lucky to have found GhostDroppings; everyone there has been really awesome. I do have a couple of banners. If you scroll to the footer at the very bottom of this page, you will see a “Links” option in the menu. My banners are in there. Thanks for entering.

  7. Dan Berriman Says:

    Will be watching that for sure. I personally have had several remarkable paranormal experiences which I have dedicated a whole chapter to in my recent book Too much baggage for the promised land. Check it out on my website if you like at www toomuchbaggageforthepromisedland.ewebsite.com
    I am sure, including the sceptics, that you will be intrigued.

  8. Goldie Says:

    Pam is right on the mark!!! I’m thankful for other people who comment saying the same thing I feel regarding your website John, but, you know that about me anyhow ;-)

    Hey, count me in pleaseeeeeee. I just saw one episode from on youtube and, YOUR RIGHT, that episode freaked me out so bad that I slept with my bedroom curtains open to bring in the outside light. The story just got me because, although the mom was having paranormal things happen to her, she didn’t believe any of her children until it was almost to late!!! I was talking to my pc flat screen a few times that day ;-) Spooky show though, would love to see the first two seasons.

    All My Best, Goldie~*~

  9. John Wolfe Says:

    Dan,

    Thanks for entering. I haven’t read about your paranormal experiences yet, but I did enjoy your entry on the operation of a mine. It provided a lot of insight into what the “old-timers” must have experienced at my favorite local ghost town and mine.

    Goldie,
    Thank you! I’m always appreciative of your great support of SOS. See, I told you so about A Haunting. It’s spooky, but it’s good. You’re entered and if you win, I don’t want to hear any complaints about how you can’t sleep… just kidding. ;)

    Hey John,

    Thanks for posting about the contest. I’ve been on your site before and have always found it to have the right touch for Halloween-related links and news. Are you on Myspace or Hauntspace by chance? Take care.

    Paul.

    Glad to hear you’re enjoying the site, Paul, and thanks for entering! I’m all over the place, except for Hauntspace… I’m headed there too, eventually. :) You can find me at myspace.com/seasonofshadows
