In PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN, Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman push the limits of paranormal investigations by living in known haunted locations for an unprecedented 72 hours. Their belief that the longer they stay in the locations the more spirits will be willing to communicate with them is a strategy that has led them to capture groundbreaking and chilling evidence of the supernatural. In the premiere episode, they captured terrifying footage of a slithering entity that manifested into a figure, and future episodes have them being attacked, capturing distinct intelligent spirit voices, and unexplainable visual anomalies that are exposing the paranormal community to evidence that has never been discovered.
