Synopsis

Three volumes from the documentary series looking at weird and unusual phenomena. The first volume looks at the questions surrounding the existance of poltergeists. Are they demons, vengeful spirits, or the released psychic energy of emotionally disturbed people? Looking at four different cases, the documentary attempts to answer some of these questions, including dramatic re-enactments and eyewitness interviews. The second volume looks at myths and legends surrounding vampires, from Vlad the Impaler, the true-lief inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula, to a modern-day couple who live their everyday lives as if they are real vampires. Part of the documentary series looking at weird and unusual phenomena. The third and final volume looks at the controversial practice of exorcism, tracing its history from the Middle Ages to the horrifying case in 1949 that inspired the horror movie classic. Looking at the claims of different religious groups, as well as of modern psychiatric practitioners, the documentary sorts the truth from the fiction about contemporary exorcism, and looks at the ways in which the concept of demonic possession has been used by fundamentalist groups as an excuse for the brutal repression of women and children.
