"Ghost Lab" at Lizzie Borden's and Investigation Discovery Shows
THANKS DISCOVERY CHANNEL!!! (TLC crapped out on documentaries and the unexplained--unless you count families with too freaking many children, but Discovery remembered us--thanks!)
Sorry ya'all, I didn't have this in my weekly show's writeup because the TV listings didn't list it. Argh! I'm excited and this is actually something I want to see. It's tough having it up against "Destination Truth" and "Fact or Faked," as someone's going to have to decide which one to tape and which one to see.

On Investigation Discovery Channel they're bringing out all the Halloween treats for adults.
This Saturday, Investigation Discovery presents American Occult, a three-part mini-series that explores some of the most haunting subcultures in America. Taking viewers inside the sinister worlds of self-professed vampires, cannibals and Satanists, each episode reveals the truth behind these ritual killers.
Each hour-long episode of American Occult features:
-- two different stories that are linked to the occult;
-- and commentary from Dr. Katherine Ramsland who analyzes and explains the killers' thought processes, beliefs, reasoning and how these crimes relate to the broader schemes of these dark subcultures
-- Police uncover a group of devil worshippers who have been cannibalizing their victims in ritual ceremonies, and discarding their mutilated bodies in fields.
-- In the second story, a nun is found on an alter, stabbed to death. Police fail to find a suspect, and the case goes cold for years, but when investigators exhume Sister Pahl's body in light of new evidence, the identity of the true killer is someone they never expected.
-- Premieres Saturday, October 30 at 8 pm ET/PT
-- A Florida woman accepts a ride from a businessman who seems to be polite. But lurking behind that ordinary exterior is a man who believes he is a real-life vampire and whose lust for blood leads him to torture.
-- Later, when a series of prostitutes is murdered in a Massachusetts town, police uncover a group of sex workers involved in a secret satanic cult. These cult members perform satanic rituals in a nearby forest, but has murder become one of their evil rites?
-- Premieres Saturday, October 30 at 9 pm ET/PT
-- A teenage boy finds his parents murdered as part of a ritual killing. In the days that follow, locals patrol the streets with guns, convinced that a network of devil worshippers are about to strike.
