Every ghost story can’t be “Casper.” In the new Eli Roth series on discovery+, the filmmaker explores the dark consequences of hauntings. 

Eli Roth Presents: A Ghost Ruined My Life will feature real-life ghost stories as told by the people who came face-to-face with the supernatural and survived. The series goes beyond the initial encounters with the unknown to focus on the aftermath of the haunting, from ravaged relationships to lost livelihoods.

“I was shocked to see how many people experience this phenomenon, and they were grateful to share their stories for the first time on camera,” said Roth. “It’s no joke – these people’s lives were ruined by the ghost, which seemed to be the spirit’s goal. They couldn’t work, they couldn’t sleep, they didn’t have the resources to move and if they did, the spirit often followed them. It’s a fascinating subject that I’ve never before seen explored in a series.”

Roth made his directorial debut with 2002’s Cabin Fever, and followed with features like Hostel and Knock Knock. He currently hosts and produces Eli Roth’s History of Horror and co-produces The Haunted Museum with Zak Bagans.

A Ghost Ruined My Life season 1 will include 8 hour-long episodes. You can preview the haunts to come in the episode descriptions below.
