‘The Dead Files’ Season 11 Preview
The Dead Files team approaches every case from their two specific areas of expertise: Steve DiSchiavi is a former homicide detective while Amy Allan is a practicing medium. Combining their unique talents and sometimes-conflicting skill-sets, they form a paranormal duo like no other, as they work to solve unexplained paranormal phenomena in haunted locations across America.
Each investigator works alone until they meet up at the end of the episode. Their methods and findings remain hidden from the other team member to preserve the integrity of their findings. Allan communicates with ghosts, spirits, and other entities, while DiSchiavi looks into the history of the location and interviews the clients, the clients’ family members or employees, and local experts in genealogy, local history, and law enforcement. The findings are then revealed to the homeowner in the conclusion of each episode and the real dangers of the haunted location are laid out on the table.
“I’ve seen a lot of things throughout my career, but the cases this season shock even me,” said DiSchiavi. “These families need our help, and for many, we’re their last hope. Amy and I are determined to bring them the answers they need to move forward.”
“I never know what I’m going to encounter when I go into these places, and it can be terrifying,” added Allan. “But providing much-needed information for these homeowners, and giving them the tools to overcome these hauntings once and for all, is the ultimate payoff.”
In the season premiere, the duo investigate a frightened woman’s claims that decades of paranormal activity in her Tonawanda, N.Y. home has now become dangerously violent. During their separate investigations, DiSchiavi uncovers the story of a twisted teenager who poisoned several children, while Allan’s walk reveals a dark entity focused on tormenting the living.
Upcoming episodes include:
“Demon Seed” – July 18
Steve DiSchiavi and Amy Allan travel to Gatesville, Texas, where a couple is being tormented by demonic entities hellbent on destroying their home and their grandchildren. DiSchiavi uncovers the dark and sordid history of a boys’ reformatory turned female prison, while Allan encounters a vicious serpent-like entity that is set on contaminating the souls of all who inhabit the property.
“The Watchers” – July 25
Steve and Amy travel to Blue Springs, Mo., where a mother fears for the safety of her children as unseen forces torment them on a daily basis. DiSchiavi discovers the property was the scene of a gruesome murder-suicide in the 1960s, while Allan encounters the spirit of a dead man who has a deep resentment towards women and children.
“Not My Child” – August 1
The investigators travel to Jefferson City, Mo., where a family has had to abandon their new home in order to escape the intense paranormal activity inside of it. Even worse, they’re worried their young daughter has been possessed by one of the dark entities tormenting them.
