PARANORMAL STATE: SEASON ONE

Extracurricular activity is important to a well-rounded college experience, but there are few clubs with stranger experiences than The Paranormal Research Society (PRS) of Penn State University. While others join clubs to play chess, speak French or go camping, the members of the PRS share an interest that goes far beyond this plane of existence. Join A&E Home Video as they chronicle the supernatural exploits of this intrepid group in PARANORMAL STATE: THE COMPLETE SEASON ONE. Fresh off its top-rated inaugural season on A&E, this 3-DVD set, offers every otherworldly episode and a host of spook-tacular extras!

Following the dramatic life of Penn State student Ryan Buell, the director/founder of the PRS, and his team as they seek to find the truth behind terrifying real life mysteries, PARANORMAL STATE is the very first program to explore the “beyond” through the eyes of college students. Home viewers are invited into the darkest corners of the unknown, as the PRS sets out on cases throughout the country, investigating supernatural activities and attempting to help the victims of hauntings, possessions, and other paranormal problems. Through the use of Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) recordings, client interviews, video documentation, old-fashioned research and the help from outside experts such as renowned psychics, demonologists, exorcists and Penn State University psychologists, Ryan Buell and the PRS team delve dangerously into other worlds to try and help people who have no one else to turn to — and all while trying to find balance within their young adult lives.
