It was Price who labeled Borley as "the most haunted house in England."

The movie has had mixed reviews so far, some who believe the activity is fake feel cheated that the film has been passed off as being a real documentary. Other reviewers have praised the movie for its storytelling and realism, calling it a "great watch".

Most Haunted

Yvette Fielding Most Haunted Series 1

Classic episodes of Most Haunted are available on Prime, from the first episode at Athelhampton Hall from 2002, right up to series 15, which ended in 2010. There's literally hundreds of investigations available including some of Yvette Fielding and the team's most memorable, like Edinburgh Vaults, Jamaica Inn, the Ancient Ram Inn, and Morecambe Winter Gardens.

Haunted Hospitals

Haunted Hospitals Quest Red

Each hour-long episode will delve into various stories from the wards, where past patients come back from the grave to seek revenge, medical professionals insist on tending to their ward - even in death, and spirits stalk corridors to warn against impending danger.

The tales are all told first-hand by doctors, nurses and patients are personal testimonies from medical professionals, keeping the storytelling authentic and the horror close at hand. Every story is a nightmarish mix of paranormal encounter and hair-raising mystery, as the show unravel the tale of the troubled souls behind the hauntings.

Ghost Dimension

Ghost Dimension

With four seasons already on Prime, this is the perfect choice of paranormal show if you want to get into some serious binge watching. Sean and Rebecca Reynolds go in search of spirit entities from other dimensions as they venture into the UK's most sinister haunted locations. Tackling such paranormal hotspots as Blackpool's iconic Empire Bingo Hall and the infamous Wellington Hotel in Boscastle, Cornwall.

The husband and wife investigation team have even made headlines after catching what they say is evidence of the paranormal, including the moment a demon chillingly growled Rebecca's name at the notorious Black Monk house in Pontefract.


Planet Weird's new documentary series follows husband and wife paranormal investigators Greg and Dana Newkirk as they team up with filmmaker Karl Pfeiffer and try to get to the bottom of reports of goblin-like creatures in Kentucky.

The series, now in its second season, starts with a mysterious string of emails from a man calling himself David Christie. David claimed that his family were being tormented by strange goblin-like creatures, which he believed were coming from an old coal mine on his land. The email exchange contained photos of what appeared to be footprints in the mud made by a small, three-toed creature.

Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

From the dark imaginations of Academy Award winner Guillermo del Toro and acclaimed director André Øvredal, based on the iconic book series, comes 'Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark'.

The movie is new to Prime, having only been shown in cinemas in August of last year. The film received mostly positive reviews from critics, with many reviewers praising it for its strong horror elements, although some criticism was directed towards the screenplay.

Most Haunted: Midsummer Murders

Most Haunted Midsummer Murders: Bakewell

A spin-off of the main Most Haunted series that sees Yvette Fielding and the team try to uncover the the mysteries surrounding some of Britain's most gruesome murders.

In each of the eight episodes, which originally aired in 2007, Yvette is joined by Most Haunted's regular historian, Lesley Smith, who sets Yvette and her team the task of solving age old unsolved mysteries. Yvette is helped along the way by resident psychic David Wells and parapsychologist Ciarán O'Keeffe, as well as some other familiar faces from the Most Haunted team.


The 2019 movie 'Midsommar' is less paranormal, but the weird occult element included in this folk horror story makes it a brilliant watch for fans of things that are a little less than normal. 

Dani and Christian are a young couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart, but after a family tragedy keeps them together, they travel to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.

Knock Knock Ghost

Now with two seasons on Prime, the Canadian Screen Awards nominated series follows comedian Richard Ryder, his friend Brie Doyle, and paranormal researcher Jim Hunt as they travel to various locations across Canada which have ghost stories attached to them. The team conduct paranormal experiments in order to determine whether it is possible to prove or disprove the existence of the afterlife.

Paranormal Pornstars

We admit this one might not be for everyone, but you can't deny it's different. This group of scantily clad investigators do exactly what it says on the tin. Tindra Frost, Hayley B, and Mitch and Lee Greenaway are a bunch of adult models who also have a fascination with the paranormal.

Their first investigation takes place in their own studio, a location they believe to be haunted. After Tindra witnesses something terrifying in the studio's attic, the team decide to put their day jobs to one side and investigate some of the UK's allegedly most haunted locations in their quest for proof of the paranormal.

This might not be what you'd expect from a group of adult movie makers. The show is well shot and the team take their investigations as seriously as any other paranormal team, but as you'd expect the investigations are peppered with skimpy outfits and some amusing attempts to encourage the spirits to communicate by teasing them with promises of naughty acts.

The Ghost Finders

British Medium and paranormal investigator Rob Thompson, Pagan witch Megan Deputy, and trainee investigator Brad Tarnowsky investigate America's allegedly most paranormally active locations including the legendary Eastern State Penitentiary. Since its closure maintenance staff and security have all witnessed alleged paranormal events here on a regular basis.
