"Scared on Staten Island" (2002 - 2004)
It began in 2002 with a few friends, a couple of cameras and a desire to explore the unknown. In these early days before Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, there was nothing to emulate, so the episodes felt like a real-life Blair Witch Project, complete with shaky-cam footage and overgrown locations. Best categorized as urban exploration, Brian J. Cano, Chris Mancuso and the rest of the early crew cut their teeth on screen in some of the most notoriously haunted places on Staten Island, including The Farm Colony (a former part of Willowbrook, best known from an expose done by Geraldo Rivera in the 70's) and Sea View Hospital.

"SCARED!" (2004 - 2013)
Once the crew left the island with their adventures, they shortened the name simply to, "SCARED!" and began exploring haunted locations near and far. The format also evolved, splitting into two categories - urban exploration and paranormal investigation. Sticking close to their roots, the urban exploration episodes saw the guys spelunking throughout large, abandoned places such as Danvers Mental Institution and Philadelphia State Hospital (Byberry).
The paranormal investigation episodes delved into more serious methods and evolving equipment. Psychic Lisa Ann was brought onto the team and the Three Pillar System was born: Psychic, Scientist and Skeptic. Three different viewpoints to make for a more well-rounded investigation.
