When YouTube ghost hunters Sam and Colby head to Kauai for an annual bro trip with two childhood buddies, they’re dying for a break from paranormal investigations—instead, they find themselves at the center of their most horrifying mystery yet.

Sam and Colby’s vacation in paradise goes from enchanting, to weird, to deadly, when Trey, an old acquaintance, insists they can’t leave without a visit to the legendary Na Pali Coast. It turns out Trey has been living at the infamous Belle Estate, owned by a wealthy and eccentric widow—who locals believe is a witch. The only thing odder than how a twenty-three-year-old college kid from Utah ended up living in a remote and isolated mansion on the North Shore of Kauai is that he is romantically involved with a woman old enough to be their grandmother. Belle Estate’s walls hold an eerie sway over all who enter, and a dark, shadowy presence seems to be following them around the grounds. When an unfavorable change of plans forces them to stay overnight, Sam and Colby are in for the most terrifying encounter of their lives.

About the Author

Sam Golbach and Colby Brock met as freshman band nerds during their high school summer band camp. After realizing that they both liked the same girl but were also both too shy to talk to her, they agreed they would help push each other to gain confidence. The two set out on what has now been a six-year journey to find self-assurance and happiness. After changing their own lives drastically, Sam and Colby wished to teach other people the same life lessons that they had learned through their friendship by creating content based around humor, authenticity, and exploration. It’s been the exploration, particularly around spooky and sometimes paranormal places, that has caught on like wildfire with their audience. They’ve taken millions of fans along their journeys into the lesser known, seen, and understood spaces of our planet. While their videos cover a broad range of their experiences, there are plenty of untold stories, sometimes scary and sometimes funny, around their stranger run-ins. In their recently announced original Snapchat docuseries, Stranded with Sam and Colby (Bunim/Murray Productions), the two film from a haunted location and what starts as something fun quickly takes a terrifying turn. The show released in October 2019.
