Destination America Debuts 'Ghost Asylum' and 'Amish Haunting' This September

'Ghost Asylum"'s TWC, courtesy Destination America
Two new spooky shows are coming to Destination America this September. First up is "Ghost Asylum" in which the Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC) take viewers to some of America's most terrifying asylums, sanitariums and mental hospitals. "Ghost Asylum" premieres on Sunday, September 7 at 10 p.m. ET. The following week on Sunday, September 14 at 9 p.m. ET, viewers will get treated to some of the most chilling ghost tales to emerge from the Amish community in "Amish Haunting."

In "Ghost Asylum," the goal of the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, "...isn’t just to conjure spirits and collect evidence but they are on a mission to physically capture restless souls with their cutting-edge ghost traps and self-trained Tennessean wit."

From the release:
TWC hunts the most lethal stories; clinics where murdered nurses still roam the halls, hospitals that drive anyone who enters to utter insanity and rehabilitation centers with earth shattering cries coming from the windows. Staffed with experts in every aspect of paranormal investigation these wraith chasers are not your average Ghostbusters but an elite team of ghost whisperers who mesh methodology and skill with old-fashioned common sense and a taste for adventure in order to debunk, disprove or validate each case.

“Respect, detect, collect” – that’s the Tennessee Wraith Chasers’ motto and the core process they follow in each episode. Led by its founder Chris Smith, the team seeks to separate facts from folklore using every trick in their arsenal attempting to bag a wandering spirit.

In the premiere on Sunday, September 7 at 10/9c, the team travels to Old War Memorial Hospital in Scottsville, Kentucky. Throughout its years of operation, this institution transformed from a place of healing to a holding cell for the mentally disturbed. Between the ER and the mental ward, it has been the site of countless deaths and could be bursting with lost souls. Locals believe that a doctor lost his mind while in residence at the hospital and, after his death, his spirit returned for a permanent shift in the exam rooms he loved so much. Now, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers venture beyond the waiting room to track down the doctor’s spirit and finally discharge him for good.

In "Amish Haunting," we learn that, "The Amish are no strangers to horror in all its dreadful forms as their full belief is that living in the modern world will lead to sin and inevitably the frightful evil spirits. For the first time ever, these tales will be brought to life by brave narrators from the Amish community who will guide viewers on a grim, captivating trip into the Amish crypt." Again, this new series premieres on Sunday, September 14 at 9 p.m. ET.

'Professional' ghost hunters? Where do I get my certificate?

OMG, this has to be the absolute worst paranormal show on all of TV. It's like Duck Dynasty meets Ghost Hunters.

There is currently no science that can explain paranormal activities. How can a bunch of hicks claim to know anything about how to catch anything but fish. Yes, they claim 'scientific methods'. What they really mean is 'we use every gadget we can get our hands on or think up that people may believe'.

I did paranormal investigations for a while. No gadgets. No nonsense. This show is insulting.

I am watching the show right now. They are in Maysville, Kentucky at Hayswood Hospital, they are calling it an Asylum, it is not and never was an Asylym. I was born in that hospital in 1957 and lived a block away. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!!!!

You're correct...Worse shows ever.
1)Unbelievable that they (Ghost Asylum)believe they can capture a ghost in a stone.
2) Thought the Amish culture would never communicate or even let themselves be caught on film or video. (Don't even mention the reality show, Amish Mafia)
I've been a Paranormal Investigator since 1998 and these shows embarrass the whole field.

Wow such hate for a new show, btw, they're not the only ones trying to catch a spirit to set free, and someone did catch one but sorry, I don't remember the show, these guys are friends with Zak Bagans, From ghost adventures, and friends with the crew from ghost hunters,

I like the show. Photography and style are good. Production excellent. Personalities excelent. I love the South. You just keep on. New show has to have an "angle" so let them try to set a soul free. Producers, keep them on TV.
