Comments about PBS Things That Go Bump in the Night: Tales of Haunted New England DVD:

Things That Go Bump in the Night: Tales of Haunted New England is about 56 minutes and if you add in the bonus haunting extras then about seventy-five minutes. Basically this DVD gives you a narrow overview ghosts, witchcraft, and haunting in the New England area and sometimes they give the reason why that area is haunted. The four most helpful people in this DVD are: Jeff Belanger, Joe Durwin, Thomas D'Agustino, and Joshua Mantello. There were others, but these four seem to know what they were talking about. One of the most famous story included in this DVD is the legend of Lizzie Borden. The only downside is that they do not go into great detail. If you are a novice of this stuff you will enjoy it. For the more astute this might not be for you.

Comments about PBS Things That Go Bump in the Night: Tales of Haunted New England DVD:

I saw this show on WGBH a few months back and thought it was absolutely incredible. The camera work was outstanding and being from Western Mass it was cool to hear about some of the history behind some of these ghost stories. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in the genre.

WONDERFUL SHOW!

By A.M.

Comments about PBS Things That Go Bump in the Night: Tales of Haunted New England DVD:

I received this DVD as a Christmas gift, and what a wonderful program! An intriguing look at the supernatural legends from the New England area (including, to my surprise and delight, a few near where I live!). The director did a great job showing all sides to these stories, including both the myths and the actual history behind them – for example, explaining how turn-of-the-century tales of vampires were likely mistaken cases of tuberculosis; and where there are no "logical" answers to claims of the paranormal, the show leaves it up for the viewer to decide what they believe or not. This DVD is worth viewing just for a look at some fascinating little-known bits of New England history alone! Great stories, wonderfully told… HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

AWFUL!

Comments about PBS Things That Go Bump in the Night: Tales of Haunted New England DVD:

I can't in good conscience give a single star to this program - so consider the mandatory star a zero. I find it horrifying to see this trash on PBS - trash that is only fit for the now disgraceful "Discovery" Channel.

I understand it's the Halloween season, but why pollute the audience's mind with such credulous nonsense? Pseudoscientist after pseudoscientist comes out to offer up absurd (and conflicting) explanations for ghosts with only a tiny amount of token skepticism present, mostly taken out of context.

Ghosts sell, but who's buying? For the sake of the intellect of America, I hope it's not PBS viewers. Leave this junk to the cable networks. It will make us stupid.
