    Case 9: I Will Kill You All

    Journalist Hannah Betts recounts the terrifying ghost story of her family home – a haunted house filled with paranormal activity seemingly linked to a murder that happened there in Victorian times.

    Can a house really record the tragic events that took place and replay them, as this house seems to every night? Are the ghosts real or the product of tensions within Hannah’s large family?

    When a chilling message is revealed to Hannah and her siblings, the haunting gets shockingly close to home.
