-->-- '''The opening theme'''

''[=FreakyLinks=]'' is a horror television series from early 2000s that took inspiration from ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject'' (in fact, it was made by the same people), which featured paranormal investigators looking into various supernatural phenomena, and releasing the results in the internet, via the website bearing the show's name.

!!This show has examples of:

%%* AngstySurvivingTwin
* AstralProjection: In "Police Siren", spirit of a comatose policewoman enacts revenge on her corrupt co-workers who almost killed her.
* BearsAreBadNews: The crew encounters danger in "Coelacanth This!" when they go interview a man, and are almost attacked by a bear.
* EmotionEater: The villains of "Live Fast, Die Young" are a bunch of adrenaline junkies who need chemicals from people who have been in a high state of fear, which they turn into a drug that makes them temporarily invincible.
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: "Desert Squid! Myth or Legend?" has the [=FreakyLinks=] crew studying the possible existence of a squid living in New Mexico desert. [[spoiler:Turns out that there isn't any squid, but a guy whose left arm was replaced with a tentacle in an experiment funded by the government]].
* FakingTheDead: In "Still I Rise", a dead rapper turns out to be alive and well. He did this because of a curse that was placed on him, which was transferred into a mannequin that was buried in his place. Unfortunately, the mannequin was released from its eternal resting place and is now wreaking havoc.
%%* FountainOfYouth: "Sunrise at Sunset Streams"
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: The title of every episode is presented as "Subject: [Something]".
%%* LivingShadow: "Me and My Shadow"

* TheSecretOfLongPorkPies: The ending of Desert Squid episode suggests [[spoiler:that the guy with the tentacle arm served the agents he captured as a lunch in his new diner]].
* SpecialEffectFailure: Mentioned in-universe. In the episode "The Final Word", a movie special effect expert claims that the mysterious buzzing that the crew managed to record is just World War II plane engine noise that has been sped up. Hearing this, Derek dismisses the guy's claim because he apparently makes very unconvincing special effects.
* StockUnsolvedMysteries: The Roanoke Colony mystery was a significant part of the show's MythArc, and which also tied into the death of Derek's twin brother.
%%* TownWithADarkSecret: "The Harbingers" has the town of Cassadega.
