Should be called “The haunted flashlight”
First off , put some shoes on. Nobody wants to see your ugly, dirty feet. I watched the first episode because it’s in Door County. Basically the show is about how they drove so far to see a ghost and the ghost aren’t cooperating. He throws a hissy fit so the ghost starts communicating with a flashlight. They have this so called ghost equipment but the ghost uses the flashlight. They never show the flashlight at all. It’s just laying on a shelf. It’s probably just broken. It doesn’t really snap on. Just kind of fades on and off. The funny part is how he counts off for the ghost. But gives so many options number wise. Not going to watch the rest of them.

Another bad YouTube quality "ghost hunting" video!
Should have been more about the history and driving to get to the location. I have to stop watching aka "Ghost Hunting" shows on Amazon. So far most of them are at best bad "YouTube" quality, not fit to be on Amazon.

Historical and entertaining
Haunted State is not your average "Ghost Hunting" show. The paranormal is a fun and entertaining part of the show, yes. But I am digging on the history of the locals too. I enjoy the cast members; their differing personalities are nice to see. Leaving on a cliffhanger makes me want to see the next episode so badly! It is a fun show. Do I always believe that the techniques used are "scientific?" No. But I am a skeptic who loves to watch paranormal shows. This is a good one that I enjoy.

Revolutionary
So many paranormal shows focus on just "hunting ghosts" and capturing evidence. This show, however, seemed to instead capture reality. The sequencing of events in this episode gave an authentic perspective on a respectful means to communicate with spirits/energy and put a strong focus on remembering that it isn't always about what the living wants to see...the living can't see what the dead aren't willing to share. I really liked how the director explained that the spirits are the ones that choose the method of communication. This team truly is revolutionary in their approach to documentary filmmaking and paranormal investigation. It's about time this genre became more than just another "reality series." This show is reality.

Two Stars For Entertainment Value
Someone "asks a fantastic question..." But maybe it's just another ghost hunter style question.
The old maglight trick is used here, despite the proven fact that they will turn off and on due to contraction and expansion of the heat, whether a place is haunted or not. And as usual, everything must be done in the dark.
Prime reason to suspect the bar as haunted? Someone died there. Picked up, a supposed growl on that annoying radio ghost box thing. Or, as female hunter put it, "a total growl."
Something about a ghost hunter going to someone's business/place and kicking off his shoes in the house is more disturbing than anything that happened.
I stopped watching when one of the guys tells how respectful they always try to be when talking to spirits, yet a few minutes before he was yelling at any spirits there that he was f-ing mad, and f-ing upset at them because they took time off from work and drove out there.
I believe Haunted State of Mind is more correct, like every other silly paranormal show all over TV these days, feeding off of people with beliefs in ghosts, demons, etc, beliefs that belong in the Middle Ages.

Really well done with a unique perspective
Much more believable and revealing than most of the paranormal shows I've seen. I really had the feeling that "This is real" while watching, and appreciated that the producers aren't trying to use smoke and mirrors to make things seem like more than they are. Great series and I'm looking forward to seeing that shadow figure episode!

NOT Your Typical Haunt
There is a casket full of homogenized ethereal shows on TV depicting some sort of insider-information to the dead. Spoon-fed to the masses with a side-dish of over-processed drama (**cough** – “Zak”) because as we all know – both drama and sex sell. Even for the deceased.
However, not all spirit-shows are as contrived as a fixed marriage. Thus, is the case with the docuseries, “Haunted State” – the brainchild of Wisconsin based director, Michael Brown.
On the surface, Haunted State may at first seem like it was filmed for a graduate project. Home movie style, sometimes questionable editing, clearly not an extravagant budget or production values. BUT - this is the absolute genius in it! You feel like you are right there in the spirit-crowded room organic within the experience opposed to merely watching it on your flat screen.

Michael, along with his trifecta of cohorts; Todd Dehring, Angela Olson, and Anne Benson spelunk deep into the bowels of supposed haunts in the most respectful of ways. The “come at me, bro” type-A mentality of “some” other similar genera afterlife shows is absolutely NOT Haunted State’s hang. Instead, these lucky dead bastard souls get to party with Michael and his buddies – laughing, joking and speaking as if they are perched on the couch next to them. Because essentially, they are.

These Ghostbusters use a standard collection of disembodied soul hunting tools as seen on many other shows. Spirt-box, laser-light array, recorders for EVP sessions, flashlights, etc. but used in a way as not to call too much attention to the technology and instead focus on the personal “relationship” with the deceased. Again, that is what makes Haunted State a trail-blazer in this field. And it seems to work! Amidst the repetitive static sound produced by the spirit-box device (used for communication with the afterlife inhabitants), the conjured apparitions seem to answer nonchalantly as if they were there sitting across a restaurant booth. We speak with the dead now. That’s become normal.

As a connoisseur of sorts to this type of dead-reality shows, I am encouraged by the distinctive approach that Haunted State has taken. I encourage other shows of this type to take note while I sit here with goosebumps, waiting for season-2 to appear like a misty shaped manifestation across my TV.
