10 Best Paranormal Documentaries on Amazon Prime

Don’t watch these 10 best paranormal documentaries on Amazon Prime when the night is dark (and full of terrors), or they may very well be the reason for a sleepless night.

Whether we believe in the paranormal or not, we are all intrigued by it. The term paranormal could be described as experiences, events, beliefs, or phenomena that are not considered ordinary and can’t be explained by science. It includes everything from ghosts and demons to aliens and near-death experiences. All of these mostly live in peoples’ campfire stories and spooky anecdotes, but there are rare physical pieces of what people claim to be evidence of these occurrences. Those stories are often flawed. For example, when people report they have seen a ghost, only 1% of them say they have seen the ghost in its full form. The rest say they have seen the curtain moving, the shadow on the wall or the footsteps behind them. The physical pieces of evidence that do exist are not remotely strong enough to confirm the existence of the paranormal. Of course, this depends on who you ask. If you ask us, we say you should check out our list of the 35 Best Documentaries on Amazon Prime. Amazon.com, Inc.

10 Best Paranormal Documentaries on Amazon Prime


The paranormal is a difficult topic to discuss since you either believe in it or you don’t. If you believe in the paranormal, know you are not alone. Studies and surveys have shown that lots of people consider paranormal events to be the real deal. American research company Gallup conducted a poll in 2005 to see how many people in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain believe in the paranormal. The results were quite surprising. According to Gallup, 40% of people in Great Britain believe in haunted houses, accompanied by 37% of Americans and 28% of Canadians. Also, 24% of Americans believe that extraterrestrials have visited Earth at least once, while 21% of Canadians and 19% of Britons believe the same. The percentages of those who believe that some people can communicate with the dead are similar.

Now, let’s shift focus back to our list of the 10 best paranormal documentaries on Amazon Prime. There is a fine selection of documentaries that you can find on this topic on Amazon Prime, from ones that support claims that the paranormal is real to those that are skeptical of those claims.
