    Ep 20 -The Amityville Horror House

    Ep 20 -The Amityville Horror House

    One of the most haunted houses in America, if not the world, this previously unassuming property was the scene of a mass murder back in November of 1974, which appears to have kickstarted some absolutely horrifying paranormal activity, including slime oozing from the walls, family members levitating in their bed, and a demonic red-eyed pig monster. After just 28 days the family fled their new home and the house on Ocean Avenue, Long Island has lived in infamy ever since.
    But is this house genuinely as haunted as we would be led to believe?

    Ep 19 - Muncaster Castle

    Ep 19 - Muncaster Castle

    Built on foundations dating back to the Roman occupation of Britain, this castle, constructed in 1258, has been the focus of studies for 30 years, due to the incredible frequency of the paranormal occurrences. Occurrences including babies crying, children singing, and shadowy figures. An experienced team of paranormal investigators came to the castle to conduct an investigation, but no sooner had their ghost hunt begun, the phantoms within the Tapestry Room, the most active room in this 800 year old fortress, sent them fleeing into the wilderness of the Lake District as they feared for their lives.
