Found this pretty neat series on Netflix tonight. It's called "Dark Secrets" and it's completely fictional, but they present it as a sort of documentary-styled investigation of a bunch of different paranormal stuff. For example, the first one episode is about a house in a small town that seems to have "eaten"(kinda) it's owner.
The narrator is presented as a sort of detective. The image you get of him is some 1950's detective with a trench coat and a smoking problem. That's also the look and feel you get of the visuals that are often used, too. They seem to go into great detail with it, as well. Lots of evidence, reports, and other neat stuff for the stories are made to make it feel quite real. They go into incredible detail with it all, which is what I like about it.
It actually reminds me a lot of the SCP Foundation stories, though a bit more serious and (at least so far), there is no mention of a secret organization trying to cover it all up.
And here's a couple of screencaps.
Just keep in mind, don't be a tard and remember the show is fiction. A lot of people get angry about it because they can't realize that it's fiction soon enough and they feel lied to or like the creators of the show are making fun of human intelligence. That's an actual quote from a rant I read while looking for a wiki page on the show (which doesn't exist yet).
SO BEFORE WATCHING THE SHOW, KEEP THESE THINGS IN MIND:
- The shows over-all story is that a secret room is found full of documentary equipment and recordings. The voice heard in these recordings is said to belong to the Documentor, AKA The Detective. This is why you often see an old-style recording device playing old-style tapes when the guys voice is heard. It is also why all the documents and what-not look very old
- To recap that last point, that means the documentary stuff found is QUITE OLD, and that's why the Vietnam guys in the second episode look so young - the video is recorded several years (possibly decades?) before they are found and then presented on the show. Perhaps the overall show provides the reenactments, but the interviews and whatnot are done by the Detective.
- THE SHOW IS FICTION - Keep this in mind or you wont have fun.
