    Summer Special Part 2: The Room Next Door

    Danny returns once more to Newfoundland, Canada and the family holiday from hell, as we hear from a new witness to the terrifying events of that night in the summer of 1998 – Scott’s Dad, Brian.

    It turns out Scott and his brother were not the only family members to be menaced by a seemingly malevolent supernatural force. What happened in the rest of that lonely seaside guest house is bizarre, frightening and shocking. Talking to Brian and Scott, Danny tries to piece together the pieces of the puzzle to find out what really happened.

    Summer Special Part 1: Canadian Horror Story

    Uncanny is back, with a brand-new case, in this terrifying Summer Special episode. It’s 1998 and teenager Scott goes on his first trip abroad, a summer vacation in the rugged beauty of Newfoundland in Canada. But when Scott’s family stay the night in a remote seaside lodging house, their trip of a lifetime becomes the holiday from hell as they find themselves seemingly face to face with a malevolent supernatural force.

    Nearly 25 years later, Danny meets Scott to see if he can solve the mystery that has haunted him his whole life. What really happened in that lonely old house? Was it demonic or can it be explained?

The first episode of this was great. As someone who staying in Alanbrooke Halls in Belfast in 1999/2000 on the 4th floor, to think this may have been 2 floors above!

Exceptionally flimsy. Danny Robins continually announcing that the next part is particularly disturbing, does not make it so.

As a paranormal fan and a lover of stories this is the cream of the crop
