"I Want my Mommy" Marathon
Sunday, May 10 from 1-11pm ET
on Destination America
 
          As children, who can deny that the best cure for a nightmare was the safety of hiding in Mama’s arms? Nowadays, you may have kids of your own but there’s still nothing quite like a hug from Mom to banish the things that go bump in the night. In appreciation of moms across America, cozy up to Destination America’s "I Want my Mommy" Marathon on Sunday, May 10 from 1-11pm ET.
 
          "When Ghosts Attack" kicks off the stunt with five back-to-back episodes of chilling cases about people who were physically attacked by an evil force from within their own homes.
 
          Then, as the sun goes down and shadows come out to play, hold Mom a little tighter during five encore episodes of "Ghost Asylum" leading into an all-new episode. Catch a full evening with the Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC) as they hunt down spirits in the most haunted places in America.
 
“Waverly Sanatorium” Premieres Sunday, May 10 at 10/9c
 
          Follow the most passionate paranormal team in America as they hunt down ghosts at Waverly Sanatorium. No other haunted location has seen as much many grisly deaths as Waverly Hills Sanatorium, and the boys of TWC can’t wait to investigate it. Back in its heyday, Waverly Hills was equipped to treat 50 tuberculosis patients at a time but, when Louisville suffered a major outbreak, the hospital overflowed with sickness. Thousands of suffering patients were experimented on and died there. Now those spirits are trapped within its walls. TWC squares off with a 500-foot body chute, a suicidal nurse, and a dark entity that hunts visits from the shadows.
 
WHEN GHOSTS ATTACKI Want my Mommy
"When Ghosts Attack" travels to the dark side of the paranormal world, where poltergeist activity is child play compared to the soul-sucking torment of an evil entity. Told from the first-person perspective of the victim, each episode features chilling cases in which people are attacked by an unknown force from within their own homes. From scratches and bruises to sudden illness and shoves down the stairs, the otherworldly assailants in "When Ghosts Attack" are invisible, but the scars – both physical and emotional – are all too real.
