At first, they appear only out of the corner of your eye, furtively darting out of view when you turn to look straight at them, but are now gone. Did you really see them? Shadow people (also known as shadow figures, shadow beings, shadow men, or shadow folk) are supernatural shadow-like figures of both modern folklore and paranormal popular culture that believers describe as dark humanoid forms or evasive specters that are seen mostly in peripheral vision. Eyewitness accounts of shadow people are depicted on the Discovery Channel's docudrama series A Haunting. Alleged shadow people are shown to be captured on video on the Travel Channel's reality series Ghost Adventures. Shadow people are listed in the glossary of Discovery Channel's paranormal-investigation reality program Ghost Lab. Also, on one episode, a photo of an alleged shadow person was taken from a cemetary in Tombstone, Arizona. Moreover, an entire episode features shadow people. Shadow people are also investigated on the Discovery Kids program Mystery Hunters.
