Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Unexplained Files is a reality series that explores alleged supernatural activities. Expect images of bloody wounds and reenactments of violent events that younger and more sensitive viewers may find disturbing. It also deals with some complex themes, such as mental illness.
What's the story?
THE UNEXPLAINED FILES is a docuseries that explores events around the world that can't be easily explained by modern science. From understanding demonic possessions and exorcisms and exploring potential extraterrestrial activity on Earth to confirming the existence of the legendary "Chupacabra," investigators use first-hand testimony, newly uncovered evidence, and scientific theories to try to separate fact from fiction and understand paranormal phenomena that have gone unexplained for years.
Is it any good?
The Unexplained Files takes an in-depth look at allegedly supernatural occurrences that have stumped scientists and inspired urban legends. It also highlights some of the specific scientific theories that modern experts use to debunk these incidents, some of which fall apart upon further investigation.
The discussions of strange occurrences and the theories used to explain them are mildly informative. However, the dramatic reenactments make the show more entertaining than informative. It's not for everyone, but folks who enjoy paranormal-themed shows will find it worth watching.
Families can talk about...
