Fiona Dodwell curates a list of best paranormal YouTube channels you can stream today!
YouTube is saturated with paranormal content, from the freaky and funny to the downright frightening. Of course, with the advent of the internet and the ease of access to sharing and manipulating footage online, it has become all too easy to share fake material too.
To save you the time, for GhostMag I have scrolled through the many paranormal YouTube channels in a quest to find some of the best out there. The aim was to find the most respected and innovative channels, and I think we’ve managed that. Included are investigative ghost-hunting series and documentary-style videos which explore the dark side of life.
Read on to uncover some of the paranormal channels we think are worth checking out. If there are any great channels I have missed, feel free to add them into the comment section below and we at GhostMag will check them out.
