This second of two pilot episodes for Discovery Channel's A Haunting: Seasons 1-4 - series is unlike any of the show's episodes - indeed, it is unlike any other ghost investigation I have ever seen. This truly is the family's story; not only do they recount their experiences via interviews, they reenact those experiences themselves (with the exception of the little girl who plays Heidi as a young child). It makes for a surprisingly personal viewing experience. One of the most moving scenes involves the family members being anointed and prayed over in their church - and I suspect that was the real deal rather than a reenactment. It's certainly possible, as this family was still very much dealing with the haunting at the time of filming.

A Haunting in Georgia revolves around young Heidi, who came to acquire a new "friend" soon after her family moved into their current home. This was a kindly old man named Mr. Gordy whom four-year-old Heidi came to love very much. Heidi's parents dismissed Mr. Gordy at first, thinking he was just a product of their daughter's imagination, but events played out in such a way that doubt and then fear came to define the family's experience. Heidi began seeing other entities, including a man wearing a blood-stained shirt and sporting an injured hand and a dark and shadowy figure that scared her very much. In time, the entities in the house make themselves known to other members of the family, physically scratching Heidi and her father at one point. That's when the family decides that they have to do something, first turning to parapsychologist Dr. William G. Roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth is Scarier Than Fiction May 26 2012
By Greg TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"A Haunting in Georgia" was a follow-up docu to the classic paranormal series, "A Haunting", which followed the groundbreaking docu, "A Haunting in Connecticut. Credible witnesses tell their real-life experiences with dark parnormal events, acted out--this time--by the witnesses themselves. This is an interesting change which gives the docu a more intimate feel. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone interested in the parnomal, the mystical and especially anyone who was a fan of the "A Haunting" series! I HOPE they will make more soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars A little different than the regular series April 19 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked this special edition. The format was slightly different than the season series. First of all it was one story only and it took up the entire DVD; that was a little over 90 minutes long. It was not a story that was covered in the original series so I hope they do release several more of these special editions in the coming years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and unforgettable...Heidi Wyrick inspires Dec 20 2008
By Kristin J. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I recommend buying The Veil: Heidi Wyrick's Story The Veil to find out all the details this haunting documentary doesn't reveal (because of time constraints and storytelling).

As it is, this documentary can stand on its own. I caught this on the Discovery Channel by accident and was stunned to realize this was the same family from "Mr. Gordy's Ghost" in Unsolved Mysteries: Ghosts Unsolved Mysteries.

I have nothing but respect for the Wyrick family and especially Heidi, who innocently befriended a man long dead. Their faith and fortitude are sorely tested by the bizarre occurrences and by the spirits---some good, some neutral, and some downright evil--that are drawn to Heidi.

The staging, as with the rest of this series, is definitely Hollywood and calculated for effect, but it works, it makes you keep watching. The narrators achieve the right somber tone. The actor playing "Mr. Gordy" as well as the one playing "Con" tug at your heart, they are so believable.

And the actor playing the menacing "dark figure" (shadow person) that terrorized Heidi deserves his/her kudos for being convincingly creepy. In every scene with the dark figure, I had to cover my eyes for a moment (there's a moment in the DVD when Heidi is following the ghost of a little girl, and the dark figure appears casually in one room Heidi passes in a blink-and-miss-it moment).

But it is Heidi that shines in this documentary with her vulnerability and her strength. It was also nice to see Dr. William Roll of "Unsolved Mysteries" fame.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Haunting in Georgia May 26 2009
By Barbara J. D'ambrosio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a very interesting movie about a family with each member having a different degree of sensitivity to seeing ghosts, and paranormal activities. I also purchased A Haunting in Connecticut which I enjoyed more. A Haunting in Georgia is more a documentary style where as A Haunting in Connecticut is like watching a movie. Both were very entertaining as well as scary.

4.0 out of 5 stars An intimate and informative look at a most unusual haunting May 18 2009
By Daniel Jolley - Published on Amazon.com

This second of two pilot episodes for Discovery Channel's A Haunting - Seasons 1-4 series is unlike any of the show's episodes - indeed, it is unlike any other ghost investigation I have ever seen. This truly is the family's story; not only do they recount their experiences via interviews, they reenact those experiences themselves (with the exception of the little girl who plays Heidi as a young child).

One of the most moving scenes involves the family members being anointed and prayed over in their church - and I suspect that was the real deal rather than a reenactment. It's certainly possible, as this family was still very much dealing with the haunting at the time of filming.

A Haunting in Georgia revolves around young Heidi, who came to acquire a new "friend" soon after her family moved into their current home. This was a kindly old man named Mr. Gordy whom four-year-old Heidi came to love very much. Heidi's parents dismissed Mr. Gordy at first, thinking he was just a product of their daughter's imagination, but events played out in such a way that doubt and then fear came to define the family's experience. Heidi began seeing other entities, including a man wearing a blood-stained shirt and sporting an injured hand and a dark and shadowy figure that scared her very much. In time, the entities in the house make themselves known to other members of the family, physically scratching Heidi and her father at one point. That's when the family decides that they have to do something, first turning to parapsychologist Dr. William G. Roll. Roll looks for scientific explanations for hauntings, and - even though he can't explain the scratch marks on Heidi and her father - blames the family's paranormal experiences on a strange combination of localized positive ions, place memory, and - later on - innate psychic abilities in several family members.

Not surprisingly, Dr. Rolle's "just ignore it" advice does nothing to alleviate the family's problems, so they turn elsewhere for help. No definitive answers are forthcoming, as one psychic's "ghosts" are another psychic's "demonic entities." The rest of the video basically looks at how the family is coping with the frightening situation more than ten years after it began. You can't help but feel sorry for Heidi. As if having to endure all of these strange and frightening experiences weren't bad enough on its own, she has to deal with the ridicule of her classmates and local citizens once the story gets out. This is not the kind of localized or poltergeist activity that ends up with the spirits being vanquished or the family abandoning their home, and that really sets A Haunting in Georgia apart from other documentaries on the subject of ghosts.

This isn't the most exciting or creepy ghost story you'll ever watch and hear, but its differences from the norm make it quite interesting. And for those skeptics out there, A Haunting in Georgia spends a significant percentage of its ninety-four minutes discussing possible scientific explanations for the haunting. If you just want to hear a good, juicy true ghost story, this probably won't be what you're looking for. Those with a serious interest in ghosts and spirits, however, should find this to be a most compelling and unusual case indeed.
