Did… did that door just move? 

Paranormal Activity did the unthinkable: made just about everyone afraid of their own homes. In a stroke of genius, the series strips the haunted house story to its core and makes it relatable.  Everybody knows the feeling of hearing footsteps at night, or maybe seeing some lights flickering, or portals that transport you to the early 1990s– wait, what? The Paranormal Activity series starts firmly planted on a tripod but quickly eschews that for secret covens and time travelling camcorders. Yep.

They’re no Ed and Lorraine Warren, but hosts Stephanie and Taylor investigate The Conjuring Universe to see what makes it so successful. The Conjuring (2013) pioneered one of the most elaborate and well-received horror franchises of all time, filled with sequels, prequels, spinoffs and tie-ins. Discover how the stories of the Warrens, Annabelle, Valak and others twist, turn and overlap to build a fully realized cinematic universe. From a ghost-witch terrorizing the Perrons to haunted board games and typewriter in Annabelle Comes Home (2019), this episode has it all.
