Found-footage movies have become a popular genre of cinema over the last several years, largely based on the success of 1999's ``The Blair Witch Project.'' ``Stranded'' takes the found-footage idea and applies it to reality TV. In each hourlong episode of the series, a group of three people, usually paranormal enthusiasts, is brought to a haunted location and stranded there for a week. The participants are given hand-held video cameras to record the entire experience and that video, along with footage from strategically placed security cameras, is used to create a first-hand account of the experience. Throughout the week, the participants' feelings of fear and desolation increase, resulting in an experiment of psychology and the paranormal. The haunted locales range from a former prison to a onetime hospital.
