Description by New Video Group:
There is no doubt that spirits of some kind exist. Whether they are ghosts in the paranormal sense or merely the memories of long ago tragedies, MORE HAUNTED HOUSES visits five homes where the past impresses itself on the present. At each one, psychics, scholars and descendants of the people involved help to tell fascinating stories from beyond the grave. At the Donnelly Farm in Lucan, Ontario, a family of Irish immigrants was burned to death over a century ago. The descendants of the vigilantes who killed them are still haunted by the long-ago crime. California's Winchester House was specifically built to house the spirits of those killed with the legendary Winchester rifle--but does it also house the ghost of the eccentric woman who had the mansion built' On New Orleans' Rue Royale, people say the spirit of the black mistress of a rich white man still haunts the site of their forbidden love. The shade of a "devil baby," abandoned at birth in Chicago's Hull House, is said to reside within those walls. And a building that is now a housing complex for Army Officers is overshadowed by the fate of Mary Surratt, who was hung there for her role in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. You don't have to believe in ghosts to be enchanted by the spooky stories of MORE HAUNTED HOUSES.
