Too much swearing
age 15+
I’ve watched this for years & I love it. The only thing which I know my friends & family feel the same is Stu. I’m sorry but he makes it look so bad & his commentary. We have to turn it off. He is so fake. And makes the rest of you look bad.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (3):

While rumors of faked possessions and staged events have circled the show, Most Haunted delivers surges of fright mixed with historical information to delight fans of the genre. (In one episode, for example, the team explores Arreton Manor. The house -- which is located on a small island in the United Kingdom and dates back to 872 A.D. -- is packed with history and rumored to be haunted by several entities, including a young girl who supposedly watched her brother murder their father and was then killed herself.) The mediums are quite convincing, and often the camera crew becomes involved when someone feels a tug on his shirt or a presence beside him. Plenty of gasps, jumps, and bleeped expletives accompany muffled knocks, creaks, and alleged visions, adding to the tension.

Whether or not you believe the team experiences real contact with the spirit world, Most Haunted offers a mildly thrilling journey through historically fascinating locales. But with its purposely frightening moments -- as well as graphic descriptions of ghastly events -- the show is best for sturdy teens and adults.
