Scariest Places on Earth is an American paranormal documentary reality television series that originally aired from October 23, 2000 to October 29, 2006. The program was produced by Triage Entertainment for Fox Family, which is now ABC Family and owns the rights to the show. The show featured reported cases of the paranormal by sending an ordinary family to visit the location in a reality TV-style vigil.


The series is hosted by Exorcist star Linda Blair, and narrated by Zelda Rubinstein, who is most famous for her role as the clairvoyant Tangina Barrons in the Poltergeist film series. Alan Robson, a well known UK radio DJ and writer, acts as an on-site correspondent.

The main controversy with the show was that it was accused of fabricating some of the aired events.[1][2]
