What the series is about : The plot of the anthology series is based on the stories of people who have encountered some kind of paranormal phenomenon at a certain period of their lives.

Each episode is an independent story, which is accompanied by the most reconstructed events with the participation of actors, and the story of a person who encountered him surrounded by people close to him.
Why it is worth watching: according to the creators, the series is documentary, which is certainly interesting, but whether this is actually so is unknown. Nevertheless, the format of the presentation of the stories, as well as their variety, attracts and draws on for further viewing. In addition to this “Haunted” is also a rather scary series in terms of portraying various monsters and ghosts, which is a minus if you like more mystery, and a plus if it is entertainment.
