10. Portals To Hell - Prime & Discovery
Portals To Hell is an American paranormal reality show, hosted by Katrina Weidman and Jack Osbourne. The show has been going since 2019, where it was initially aired on the Travel Channel. As of today, the show has aired three seasons - 39 episodes in total, each running to about 45 minutes - and can be viewed on Prime and Discovery.
Weidman and Osbourne travel to various properties across America where they seek to investigate the history and paranormal accounts associated with each location. For both stars of the show, the aim is to find places in which there is said to be "portals" in which entities can cross over to ours. The episodes often include guests, such as medium Michelle Belanger, and try to capture verifiable evidence of the existence of ghosts and demons.
Each outing is tense and extremely atmospheric, and evidence is often captured using up-to-date technology and various scientific methods, such as EVP (electronic voice phenomena). The dynamic between Weidman and Osbourne comes across well in the show, and for fans of paranormal reality this series is one not to be missed.
