Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Stranded is a chilling docuseries that features people investigating paranormal activity in remote places. Night cameras, dramatic camera shots, and video footage of the amateur investigators reacting to creepy events create some entertaining suspense, but it might be too much for younger and/or more sensitive viewers. Accidents and death are frequent themes, too. Expect some bleeped language.
Is It Any Good?
The Blair Witch-like series creates some anxiety-filled tension as the amateur sleuths express their apprehension and have frightened reactions to unexplained noises, lights, shadows, and other mysterious events. Night camera footage of long empty hallways, dark corners, and antique items also adds to the eeriness.
Skeptics will be quick to point out that very little on the show documents any real paranormal activity. But viewers may find the connections the investigators make between what they think they are finding and their own questions about their lives and deceased loved ones interesting and poignant. Regardless of what you believe, the show succeeds in creating some entertainingly chilling suspense.
