Episode 3: Aliens Walk Among Us

Three stories that suggest aliens are among us: a Mexican rancher slays a terrifying and mysterious creature that’s genetically unlike any species on Earth, and is later burned to death in his car; an Arizona woman claims to have been fathered by an alien in a top-secret government experiment to create a new trans-planetary species; in Nevada, a young serviceman befriends a colony of extraterrestrials living secretly on a remote Air Force base.

Episode 4: Curses

Three ghostly stories about blood-curdling curses: in Britain, a string of deadly house fires is linked to a supernatural arsonist and a mysterious painting of a crying boy; believed to carry a terrifying voodoo curse, a sinister doll in Florida ruins the lives of anyone who crosses it; and, driven by vengeful spirits and a devastating family curse, a wealthy California heiress embarks on one of the most bizarre construction jobs in history.

Episode 5: Weird Animal Behaviour

Three extraordinary stories about the supersensory power of animals: in Germany, a seemingly psychic octopus correctly predicts multiple winners in the 2010 soccer World Cup; scientists are baffled when more than 50 dogs mysteriously plunge to their deaths from the same Scottish bridge; and, in Oklahoma, an ordinary housecat makes an epic cross-country journey to track down its owner in a place it had never been.

Episode 6: Ghosts in the Machine

Three bizarre stories about everyday objects that are haunted by the dead: strange apparitions on board Eastern Airlines lead some to believe the pilots of a crashed airliner have returned from the grave; in Britain, a mysterious portrait is kept hidden for decades but once on display, it is blamed for a near-fatal attack on a boy; after a devastating earthquake in New Zealand, a man is savagely attacked in his bed by a sinister and invisible phantom force.
