- Destination America is also premiering brand-new series AMISH HAUNTING, Sunday, Sept. 14th at 9/8.
Investigating abandoned insane asylums is dangerous and downright terrifying, but in Destination America’s all-new series GHOST ASYLUM, a fearless crew is on a quest to hunt down chain-rattling ghosts and scary apparitions by any means possible, even if that requires luring themselves as the decoy. GHOST ASYLUM follows the most passionate paranormal team in America, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, as they examine some of America’s most frightening asylums, sanitariums and mental hospitals. Their goal isn’t just to conjure spirits and collect evidence but they are on a mission to physically capture restless souls with their cutting-edge ghost traps and self-trained Tennessean wit.
TWC hunts the most lethal stories; clinics where murdered nurses still roam the halls, hospitals that drive anyone who enters to utter insanity and rehabilitation centers with earth shattering cries coming from the windows. Staffed with experts in every aspect of paranormal investigation these wraith chasers are not your average Ghostbusters but an elite team of ghost whisperers who mesh methodology and skill with old-fashioned common sense and a taste for adventure in order to debunk, disprove or validate each case. GHOST ASYLUM premieres Sunday, September 7 at 10/9c on Destination America.
“Every town in America has some sort of haunted building up on the hill with a mysterious legend or local ghost story that leaves to question the truth and reality of lingering spirits," said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. "GHOST ASYLUM follows the clever Tennessee Wraith Chasers as they enter the most petrifying locations, sharing shocking evidence and real life experiences on the hunt to trap the spirits lurking around these haunted institutions.”
