About The Dead Files —
The Dead Files team approaches every case from their two specific areas of expertise: Steve DiSchiavi is a Homicide Detective and Amy Allan is a Physical Medium. They are a paranormal team like no other, combining their unique, eclectic and often-conflicting skills to solve unexplained paranormal phenomena in haunted locations across America.
Each investigator’s methods and findings remain hidden from the other team member to preserve the integrity of their findings, until the shocking results are revealed to the homeowner in the compelling conclusion of each episode.

The premise of this show already suggests contrived storytelling and drama. Psychics will not admit that they NEVER contribute meaningful information to solving a crime that can’t be gained in other ways. They have been repeatedly asked for the BEST evidence that they can do what they claim and the story falls apart. The worst effect of these shows is to make popular the idea that psychic powers are genuine when they have NEVER been established as real.
This new show premiers this Friday, September 23 after Ghost Adventures. What a pair!
