The Unxplained Full Episode Guide

  • A look at some of history's greatest escapes, the most incredible of which defy explanation.

  • A look at animals that have extraordinary powers, including a dog that can detect cancer faster than doctors and a horse that can read minds.

  • Dracula; Lycaon of Arcadial; and the Beast of GĂ©vaudan are the names of grotesque monsters who have reared their terrifying heads throughout history. It is discussed whether these monsters could be real.

  • What is it about rocks and stones that inspires some people to worship them. Throughout history, many have insisted that simple stones can do everything from choosing a king to causing death. A miraculous meteorite falling from the heavens. A priceless gemstone with a deadly curse. And a chunk of sandstone considered so sacred that wars have been fought to protect it.

  • A house that narrowly dodges the path of a tornado. Rain that falls from the sky like blood. And lightning that follows one into their home. The world is full of strange and mysterious weather phenomenon that still have no explanation. Is it a result of just simple scientific anomalies, or could there be a stranger, more spiritual force at work.

  • Many of the world's deadliest cults ventured down dark, dangerous rabbit-holes of twisted ideologies, persuading their members to kill other people or themselves.

  • Modern scientific knowledge tries to explain how a civilization becomes lost and what could cause once-thriving groups of people to abandon their great cities.

  • It is discussed whether people can predict the future and whether the knowledge can be harnessed to avoid future deadly events if so.

  • For more than 200 years, treasure hunters have been coming to Oak Island in search of a treasure that has so far eluded them all and has even cost six men their lives. It is discussed whether, as the legend suggests, the treasure is protected by a deadly curse.

  • Incredible tales of human survival are featured.

  • The mysteries involving the mind are explained.

  • An unexplained mystery is what happens to people after they die. Clues may lie in unusual cases of near-death experience, reincarnation, and how memories can be passed from organ donors to transplant recipients.

  • The possibility that the mind and body can use the power of ritual to tap into hidden forces that lie just beyond the grasp of conventional explanation is investigated. Ancient practices such as prayer, blood sports, voodoo and exorcism are often thought to be relics of bygone superstition, but there is evidence they have an impact on the physical world.

  • Many mysteries of planet Earth are far from understood. This episode will try to find out how the Devil's Tower was formed and other unsolved mysteries of the planet earth.

  • Millions of people around the world claim to have had an encounter with a creature unlike any recognized by mainstream science - such as the Mothman, Chupacabra, and Mongolian Death Worm.

  • For centuries, archaeologists have tried to unravel the mysteries of how - and why - certain incredible structures like the Great Pyramid at Giza, the staircase at Loretto Chapel, and Coral Castle were built. Will we ever find the answers? Or, might these structures have been intentionally constructed to perpetually mystify us?

  • Deadly forests. Haunted houses. Mountains where visitors never return alive. Are there such things as "evil places"? Places where bad things seem to repeatedly -- and inexplicably -- happen? And if so, is it possible that these locations are imbued with dark energy that is currently beyond our understanding?
