Sightings: Heartland Ghost is a 2002 film originally aired on Showtime based on the TV series Sightings and inspired by true events. The film was written by Phil Penningroth and directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith.[1]


In this creepy ghost story, a Kansas couple's claim that their Victorian house is haunted prompts a visit from the crew of "Sightings", a TV show exploring paranormal events. Nobody believes the couple's story - especially cynical producer Beau Bridges, but show psychic Miguel Ferrer begins feeling the presence of several entities, including a little girl.
