Dead Crossroads is a well-crafted blend of urban exploration and urban legend that is genuinely scary to watch. Each of the twelve episodes engages the viewer. The documentary style of filming is eye candy for explorers who may never have the chance to visit these locations. Fabian Delage often points out architectural features and other oddities while they explore, everything one would expect from an urban exploration video. The dangers of rotted wood and crumbling stone are evident.

However, we are quickly reminded of the real reason why are two explorers are there. Tales of tragedy, murder and hauntings are narrated at each location. As night approaches, the entire feeling of the explore changes. Over the course of the twelve episodes, the tension mounts as their camera catches everything from very real human danger to paranormal occurrences.

While so many of today’s YouTubers follow the same formulistic approach in combining urban exploration and the paranormal, Fabien Delage and Julien Mazzitelli do it well!

A little hard to find in North America these days but a quick search of YouTube will find season 1. Although, not in the quality it deserves to be watched in. I bet you’ll binge watch the entire season at once!
