Set in the Delta Green Universe, Phenomen-X was a 1990's syndicated television show, much in the vein of other supernatural encounter reality shows. One part Inside Edition mixed with one part Ghost Hunters, a liberal heaping of John Edward and one part MUFON, Phenomen-X was a ratings boon in syndication.
Things began to go badly for Phenomen-X in 1997, when the entire on location crew, including the original narrator, disappeared during a location shoot in Eastern Tennessee, never to be heard from again. But in 1998, things would go from bad to worse...
