Don't turn out the lights! Joel Sutherland returns for the frightful fifth installment of the Haunted Canada series.

In Nunavut, stories are passed down from generation to generation about the tarriassuit, shadow people who are sometimes felt or heard - but never seen except out of the corner of your eye . . .

The organ at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Quebec City plays by itself, and Queen Elizabeth II reportedly saw a mysterious figure on the balcony during her visit in 1964 . . .

Late at night, after Vancouver's Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant has closed, a shadowy man in uniform is seen boarding the decommissioned trolley car that sits in the middle of the dining room . . .

With more than 25 terrifying new tales of ghostly encounters and mysterious phenomena, Haunted Canada 5 is guaranteed to keep kids across the country awake and screaming!
