The House In Between
Steve Gonsalves and Kendall Whelpton's 'The House In Between' was the must-see paranormal documentary of 2020 that will leave even the most skeptical viewer scratching their head. Gonsalves is called in to investigate paranormal activity in a seemingly normal house in Florence, Mississippi that has been described as one of the most haunted in America. For the last decade, its owner has been too afraid to spend a night in the house alone.
The Blackwell Ghost
'The Blackwell Ghost' is a series of five supernatural movies which leave viewers wondering whether the film is a genuine documentary following the adventure of a journalist who is trying to prove that ghosts exist, or simply a true-to-life work of fiction. The fifth instalment in the series has been extremely well received by its cult follow, evident by the huge number of overwhelmingly positive reviews on Amazon. This time around we see the ghost-hunting filmmaker return to the Lightfoot House, where he hopes to solve a newly discovered puzzle which may lead to the location of more undiscovered victims.
The Craft: Legacy
The new version of the cult 90s movie, 'The Craft' is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. The film stars Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna and Cailee Spaeny as a group of outcasts who form their own witches coven to dabble in black magic and the occult. David Duchovny and Michelle Monaghan also appear as the parents of one of the girls, Hannah, played by Spaeny.
'The Craft: Legacy' is the latest supernatural horror offering from Blumhouse, but the movie isn't a reboot as such, instead it's a sequel set 20 years after the original, which starred Neve Campbell and Robin Tunney.
Think your lockdown was bad? Think again. It was inevitable that a new wave of movies would emerge as a result of the global coronavirus lockdown, and 'Host' is one such movie based in the paranormal world. Since its release, 'Host' has scored a very impressive 100% on review aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes.
The movie is the story of a group of friends who hire a medium to conduct a remote séance using video conferencing software during lockdown, something that real life paranormal teams were doing during the lockdown to keep their customers and followers entertained while staying safe at home. However for the six friends in the movie, a virtual séance was the worst thing that they could have done.
The Haunting Of Margam Castle
'The Haunting Of Margam Castle' is a 2020 horror movie based on the real-life haunting of an ill-fated former family home in Wales. A team of American paranormal investigators reluctantly venture across the Atlantic in the hopes of capturing proof of ghosts at a cursed castle in Wales in an attempt to gain media coverage for their struggling university parapsychology department and attract some much-needed funding.
Directed by Andrew Jones, the British film stars Amy Quick, Ashton Spear and Caroline Munro, who previously appeared in the 1977 Bond movie 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. If you're a fan of ghost stories, then 'The Haunting Of Margam Castle' is well worth a watch, even if just to see an iconic British paranormal hotspot's moment in the spotlight. For a horror, the movie isn't overly scary, but it's a great mix of geeky ghost hunting culture, historic ghost stories and movie-level supernatural encounters.

An eight-part documentary series that follows four filmmakers who investigate historic locations that are reported to be haunted. The well crafted, insightful documentary fuses the science of paranormal with a balanced investigation designed to find out once and for all if we really communicate with our lost loved ones. The show was shortlisted as one of the Best Ghost Hunting Series on Amazon Prime in the 2020 Paranormal Entertainment Awards.
We've included 'The Phenomenon' on this list not so much as a recommendation, but because of the hype surrounding it. If you want to be part of the UFO zeitgeist then it is worth a watch. The film by James Fox has been hyped as the earth-shattering documentary ufologists have been waiting for. Despite promises that the film includes eye-opening evidence that mankind is not alone in the universe, the documentary fails to meet expectations and presents little to no new information on the topic. However, the documentary does serve as an interesting review of historic UFO cases dating from 1947 through to the mid-1990s.
A Voice For The Silenced
Randolph County Asylum in Winchester, Indiana was built in 1899 and housed six large wards. With claims of paranormal activity such as shadow figures, disembodied voices, and objects moving on their own, this team of five friends spends 72 hours inside of the imposing building in an attempt to uncover the cause of its paranormal disturbance.
Ghost Dimension: Lock Down
Filmed during the global coronavirus lockdown, Sean and Rebecca Reynolds return with a new ten-part series, which see them take on more of the UK's most haunted buildings in search of paranormal activity. While the world is in lockdown, will the investigators discover that the ghost are not?
