Dead Silent: Horrific Urban Legends Showcased in New ID Series

(Silver Spring, Md.) – Deep in the woods, inside an abandoned house, or along the shores of a sleepy lake, every snap of a twig and unidentified rustle can be a sign of danger. Investigation Discovery’s (ID) all-new series DEAD SILENT shows just how dark and desolate the great outdoors can be when no one can reach you.
