Haunted is an American-Czech paranormal pseudo-documentary developed by Propagate.[1] The anthology series focuses on horror stories in which individuals or groups of people talk about their paranormal experience.[2] The six-episode first season premiered on Netflix on October 19, 2018. Season 2 was released on Netflix on October 11, 2019.[3]

Many of the stories featured in the series resemble popular horror films released prior to the alleged date on which the events occurred. Others contain very little to no corroborating evidence to back up the stories. In the first episode, the story teller describes being revived by a defibrillator after having been medically dead from dehydration and heat stroke. Episode 2, "The Slaughterhouse", features a woman recounting the story of her serial killer parents.[4] However, despite many people searching for any reference, police report, or news story relating to these events, no evidence was found to support it, leading many to question the show's "true story" claims.[5][6]
