Jack and Kelly Osbourne: Night of Terror – “The Queen Mary” – Two-Hour Special

For decades, people have ventured onto the ship, docked in Long Beach, California, for a glimpse at the other side. This once-elegant ocean liner has been closed to the public since early 2020, but it is hardly empty. The skeleton crew of security and maintenance workers have experienced unsettlingly aggressive paranormal activity including scratches, threatening footsteps thundering down the hall and vivid apparitions. And it gets worse by the day. Now, Jack and Kelly will come aboard to investigate the infamous ghost ship alone.
