Survivalist Cliff Simon Explores the Supernatural Reputation Behind California’s Mount Shasta on an All-New Episode of ‘Into the Unknown’


Night is something we lock the door against. Those who work the graveyard shift must venture into the darkness while the rest of us sleep safely. In each episode of “Paranormal Nightshift,” we tell three horrifying stories of paranormal encounters during the night shift. By day the workplace is rational and efficient – but at night these same offices, hotels, eateries and even open highways become the domain of ghosts, demons and the inexplicable.
