Members of a production crew shooting an episode of “A Haunting” at a Craig Drive home Wednesday weren’t keen on allowing photographers onset, but the view from the street gave some indication that something was occurring in the celluloid world, if not some parallel universe.

A ghost story that has had neighbors intrigued was unfolding at a home on Craig Drive Wednesday.

New Dominion Pictures has been at the two-story lakeside house in Westhaven Lakes, off Pitchkettle Road, filming an episode of “A Haunting” for Destination America, said Aaron Williams-Mele, transportation manager with the Suffolk-based cable television producer.

“This is our last day at this location,” he said Wednesday. “We’ll be in the studio for the rest of the week.”

The program re-enacts real-life encounters with the spectral universe.

“We interview people that have had experiences with ghosts and we re-enact them and show the incidents,” Williams-Mele said.

Though Williams-Mele declined to describe what occurs in the episode, a neighbor reported seeing “zombies and ghouls” around the house.

Williams-Mele said the episode is due to air around November. He said it was the second time filming at a Suffolk location for the 16-episode season they’ve been working on.

About 30 crewmembers were involved, Williams-Mele said, but he couldn’t say how many actors — alive, dead or undead.

“This house just happened to fit the bill,” he said. “We talked to the owner and rented out the house for the shooting time.

“We shoot all around Hampton Roads — all different locations.”
