Here's everything we know so far.
It is not a new thing for Netflix to dive head-first into the paranormal and spooky in recent years. Horror fans have been greeted with a plethora of horror content, ranging from scripted shows like The Haunting of Hill House to docu-series like Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. Now, we are hearing that Netflix has secured the streaming rights to a show from Imagine Entertainment which will explore America's most haunted places.
Netflix Scares Up a Docuseries on America’s Most Haunted Places https://t.co/Y6YQFtY1lJ— Bloody Disgusting (@BDisgusting) December 10, 2019
According to a report by Variety, the yet-untitled project is supposed to be "gritty and meticulous study" of some of the most notorious haunted locations throughout the US. As horror enthusiasts, we know that there is no dearth of haunted and spooky places in the States, and making whole docu-series on this subject could actually result in a massive hit for the streaming giant.
LOL That's gonna be a pretty short one on Amityville. The novel was pre-written and altered to fit the Lutz's details. They got in way over the heads on a mortgage they couldn't afford & drummed up this nonsense to get out. It did give us the Stigmatized Property clause, though.— Let's Talk VAMPIRELLA 🦇 (@LetsTalkVampi) December 10, 2019
Another report by Bloody Disgusting says that the show is going to be created by Ron Howard and will be directed by Joe Berlinger, who already has hit Netflix shows like Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes and Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile under his name. Conversations with a Killer was a docu-series that proved Berlinger can deliver facts in an entertaining way while Extremely Wicked showcased that the director is equally capable of delivering an incredible movie to the audience.

While no further information about the project is available as of now, there is a lot of speculation regarding which of America’s most haunted places the series will include. The documentary will surely involve abandoned mansions and mental asylums, as well as Eastern State Penitentiary, which is open to the public as a museum. Gabe Spitzer, director of original documentaries at Netflix, revealed that the team at Imagine is ‘excited’ for the docuseries to be brought to the streaming service. Another report noted that the docuseries could include a feature of the original house that inspired James Wan’s The Conjuring.
I wouldn't stay there even if someone paid me too 👀 😬😁— Matt (@Matthew06350740) December 10, 2019
He said, "The Imagine team has quickly built a first-rate division working with many of the industry’s top documentary filmmakers. We’re excited about the rich and compelling series coming to Netflix and look forward to sharing these with our members around the world." There is no doubt that the show is going to be spooky, to say the least.
Please tell me Zak Bagans has nothing to do with this.— Nickbait (@Nickbait) December 11, 2019
