Starring Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman, Paranormal Lockdown follows the adventures of these veteran investigators as they spend 72 hours locked inside supposedly haunted locations.

Using a series of high-tech gadgets and obscure investigative techniques, the pair attempt to identify the source of these hauntings, and sometimes even eliminate them entirely. We can honestly say that the GeoBox is probably one of the scariest and most revealing tools in ghost hunting… We’re now in our Second Season, which has been truly terrifying.

The second season premiere starts with the infamous Monroe House, located in Hartford City, Indiana, where a series of mysterious deaths and fires over the past century have left the current owner of the property in an unfortunate situation.

The show follows an investigative formula (which we are used to), featuring input from witnesses and mediums to try and piece together a cohesive narrative regarding the history of the Monroe House, and build up to the actual investigation. The episode initially felt quite tame…


Until the medium shows up to help Groff and Weidman get to the bottom of the situation, things get especially chilling. This, coupled with some eerie audio recordings, gives the episode a boost, as the investigators start to believe that an entity is trying to hide something within the house… yes, hide something in the house.

Suffice to say that my girlfriend and I were entirely invested in the mystery of the house at this point, though the hair-raising last third of the premiere is what really sets it apart from the usual onslaught of ghost hunting media. As the investigation leads Nick and Katrina underground, deep within the bowels of the house, we’re presented with evidence of a frighteningly real tragedy that may be behind all these sinister occurrences… It freaked us out and had us clutching each other for physical assistance during this period. We don’t want to spoil it, but do watch this episode with the lights out, thunder in the background and obviously, your emergency contact already awaiting your call 😉

As is usually the case in the real world, Paranormal Lockdown doesn’t offer any conclusive solutions or even a history to the Monroe House haunting, but that doesn’t make the show any less entertaining. There are some genuine scares to be had here, regardless of whether or not you believe in the paranormal, and Nick and Katrina are charismatic enough to make the audience root for them. While some of the creepy situations depicted in the show at times seem exaggerated, it’s still definitely worth a watch, especially if the following episodes keep up the thrills of the premiere.

The second season of Paranormal Lockdown is currently on air. Be sure to check it out!
