Haunted North America: Witches, Ghosts and Demons
Canadian ghost stories are examined in this dull paranormal documentary.
Amongst the stories recounted in this documentary are an armless ghost in a Gibraltar Point lighthouse, the apparition of a sea captain seen in a Prince Edward Island playhouse, a hermit seen in the lonely, out of the way White Otter Castle, and the menacing Marie Corriveau, a Quebec witch hung in an iron cage from a wooden cross, who murdered by placing a few drops of mercury in her victim's ear.
Featuring interviews with historians and eyewitnesses, Haunted North America is marred by unintentionally comical recreations and overwrought narration. Concentrating primarily on ghost stories in Canada, Haunted North America is misnamed, and rather boring.
