A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series suggests that ghosts, beasts, and other legendary monsters may potentially exist, despite the lack of conclusive evidence.
Positive Role Models
The investigators take their jobs very seriously and try to be as scientific as possible when collecting data.
Violence & Scariness
Creepy moments feature investigators looking anxious or running, but nothing dangerous is actually shown. Mysterious (and unseen) creatures are allegedly violent and/or dangerous.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Haunted Highway features paranormal investigators looking for legendary ghosts and beasts around the back roads of America. Although the show attempts to create a lot of suspense, there really isn't anything scary visible. Some of the sought-after monsters are allegedly violent, but since none are ever found, we never really find out if this is true. The show contains some bleeped cursing ("s--t," "f--k").
Is It Any Good?
The series attempts to create some Blair Witch Project-like suspense by relying on a first-hand reporting style that requires the cast to record themselves rather than having a camera crew follow them into deep lakes and dense forests. Footage from high-tech devices like thermal imaging cameras and ominous music is added in to increase the creepiness factor.
The show's over-produced scenes filled with footage of little more than dark shadowy places may spook younger kids, but despite the casts' best efforts, chances are that teens and adults will find it hard to take any of it very seriously. Those who like paranormal-themed shows may find it entertaining, but there's not much here for those who don't.
