Following the success of their acclaimed documentary series 'Hellier', paranormal researchers Dana and Greg Newkirk are about to drop their latest horror documentary, 'The Unbinding'. Premiering on Planet Weird's YouTube channel on September 8, the film is also available on Apple TV, Amazon Prime and Google Play.

Set against the eerie backdrop of New York's Catskill Mountains, the film unfolds the harrowing experience of two hikers who discover a mysterious wooden statue in a secluded cave. Named "The Crone," this strange artefact triggers a series of unsettling paranormal phenomena, compelling the hikers to seek expert advice.

Enter Dana and Greg Newkirk. These seasoned paranormal researchers are well-known for their previous work on the hit docuseries 'Hellier' and Discovery+'s 'Kindred Spirits'. Here, they take on a case that diverges from their usual mysterious emails and goblin encounters. With 'The Unbinding', they endeavour to uncover the truth behind this haunting artefact.

This terrifying tale is brought to you by Planet Weird, the independent media company that gave us 'Hellier' and 'The Haunted Objects Podcast'. Known for diving into stories that shape our beliefs, they've traversed North America on hundreds of paranormal escapades. This time, they're joined by paranormal researcher Tyler Strand, further bolstering their investigative prowess.

You can watch the official trailer for 'The Unbinding' below to prepare yourself for what lies ahead.

What makes 'The Unbinding' stand apart is its focus on a physical object โ€” The Crone. This weird witch totem is at the centre of this different kind of case, making it a compelling focal point for those interested in the tangible elements that can trigger paranormal phenomena.

Directed by Karl Pfeiffer, who is making his feature directorial debut after his work on the 'Hellier' series, the film boasts an array of talent both in front and behind the camera. Dana and Greg Newkirk serve as executive producers, while Connor Randall steps in as co-executive producer, promising a well-rounded production that aims to unsettle as much as it informs.

The film promises to be more than just a run-of-the-mill horror documentary. It aims to provide an in-depth look into the world of haunted artefacts, creating an impactful narrative based on real-life experiences. If youโ€™ve enjoyed the team's previous works or have an interest in the paranormal, this is one you wonโ€™t want to miss.

'The Unbinding' is released on Friday, September 8 and will stream on demand on Planet Weird's YouTube channel, as well as Apple TV, Amazon Prime and Google Play.
