Shaun, Nathan and Jason investigate Pennhurst State School and Hospital, a decrepit mental asylum in Eastern Pennsylvania. The facility was closed in 1986 after decades of abuse, neglect and torture under the guise of "treatment" were reported. Ever since, strange sightings and unexplained phenomena have been witnessed. Our team relives horrific abuses such as prolonged restraint and electroshock therapy in the hopes of experiencing the paranormal legends themselves. Then the team travels deep into the heart of Manchac Swamp, a haunted swamp just outside of New Orleans where they bury alive one of their own in a mass gravesite so they can contact the souls of the residents of an entire town wiped away by a massive hurricane in 1915.
Unlike other paranormal investigators, Shaun, Nathan, and Jason put themselves directly in harm's way--taunting ghosts, summoning the dead and daring the demonic to attack. The team has developed a bring-it-on mentality when it comes to their explorations. In 1980, the New Mexico State Penitentiary was the site of the worst prison riot in U.S. history. Thirty-three inmates were hacked to death, burned alive and tortured with no remorse. In this hour, the investigators recreate moments of this horrific event--even shedding their own blood--to provoke the violent spirits that still remain in this abandoned maximum-security lockup.
