Filmmaker Ying Liu Investigates Haunted Places In The Bay Area

Ying Liu

Ying Liu doesn’t just tell ghost stories, she shows them. Liu is creator of the documentary series "The Haunted Bay," where she and her team investigate haunted places around the Bay Area from gay bars to old ships.

"Sometimes the spirits really just want us to know their stories."

But the show includes a lot of local history too. The series was born from a class assignment Liu did while studying at Oakland’s Laney College. "The Haunted Bay" season three begins in San Francisco with Liu, the Alameda Paranormal Researchers and psychic June Ahern. 

Watch The Haunted Bay season premiere Oct 30 on AsianAmericanMovies.com or Amazon Prime Video.
