The Dead Files is a paranormal show created by the Travel Channel. It focuses on investigating haunted locations across the United States. There are several factors that make The Dead Files an interesting show to start watching. The investigators bring unique skills to the show. Steve DiSchiavi is a homicide detective who retired from the New York City Police Department after working with them for more than 21 years. Amy Allan is a physical medium who specializes in communicating with the dead. Steve uses the experiences he had and the skills he learned while he was on the NYPD so he can interview people, search each haunted property, and conduct other research. Amy uses her ability to communicate with the dead in order to find out similar information. The Dead Files also has a unique kind of investigation. There isn't an entire group of people moving from room to room asking unseen entities questions, for example. They also don't arrive together, nor do they sit alone in different rooms. During an investigation on The Dead Files, the investigators don't work together; instead, they work separately. Their individual findings are also kept secret from each other. This is done to make sure one investigator's findings don't affect the other investigator's findings. Each episode alternates between each investigator's separate search. An episode begins with Amy walking through the haunted location. She uses this time to contact any spirits haunting the location; however, before she does this, her husband and assistant, Matt, removes any items that could affect her communication. This includes personal items, such as photos. Her walkthrough is intercut with scenes of Steve's investigation. He's shown researching the location's history and interviewing anyone who has witnessed the paranormal phenomena. This includes the current owner or owners, any previous owners, and any other witnesses. Sometimes, Amy works with a sketch artist to find out what the spirits or other paranormal entities look like. At the end of each episode, they meet with the property owner or owners. During this meeting, they discuss what they learned during each investigation. The Dead Files is an interesting show to start watching. The investigators, Steve DiSchiavi and Amy Allan, do a good job at combining their differing backgrounds and skills to find out what's really going on in each case. How the investigations are done and the structure of the episodes also make this show different.
