Each one-hour episode dramatizes ghost stories based on eyewitness events. The show presents these stories through cinematic reenactments of the events along with accounts from the eyewitnesses and investigators themselves. The reenactments depict fantastic events (stigmata, demon attacks, possessions, transmutations, etc. Stigmata are bodily marks sores or sensations of pain in locations corresponding to the Crucifixion wounds of Jesus. Demonic possession is often the term used to describe the control over a human form by Satan himself or one of his assigned advocates ) that are often alluded to by the eyewitnesses during interview segments. However, witnesses rarely specifically mention the events that are shown making it unclear if these events are inventions of the production team, or if they are supposed to represent actual aspects of the story that are simply not explicitly discussed. The series showcases only supernatural events that many viewers would find disturbing and terrifying.

Summerwind Mansion formerly known as Lamont Mansion is a now derelict cellar hole on the shores of West Bay Lake in Vilas County, North East Wisconsin
The show is presented entirely from the point of view of the eyewitnesses, with no investigation into alternate explanations. Skeptical experts are not invited to explain the events in naturalistic terms. The investigators brought in appear to believe in the supernatural accounts from the start and might even have a conflict of interest. In addition, the hosting of the show by the Discovery Channel lends an air of authenticity to the show it would not possess were it to be broadcast on another network.
It should also be noted that episodes have been shown where video evidence of paranormal activity was recorded. Subsequently, rather than show the original footage the show merely reenacts the supposed recordings. The choice to do this remains unexplained, but nevertheless raises serious doubts concerning the reliability of the accounts that the series documents.
Some of A Haunting's episodes show Wicca and witchcraft causing the hauntings, but some show Wicca being used to stop them. This makes many people doubt the reality of certain episodes or the series in general.
The show has aired 4 seasons. This is an episode listing for the Discovery Channel Television show A Haunting, with the episodes original air dates included
