Season 1 Episode 13
The first ever to investigate this ominous site, the team explores Slovenian national monument, the Predjama Castle. Once a refuge site for the Luegg family, the castle is now home to a museum. The current tenants are sure to lock up long before dusk as to avoid encountering the spirit of Robin-Hood-like Erasmus scurrying about, who is still trying to keep the castle stocked with food and supplies. Nobody has spent the night at Predjama for over 20 years, but that won't stop the team from confronting the keeper of the castle. The team then travels to another castle with a far more gruesome tale. The Bathory Ruins at Cachtice Castle in Slovenia, are home to the final resting place of prolific and infamous serial killer Elizabeth Bathory. Known as The Bloody Countess, Bathory terrorized, tortured, and killed over 600 young women, and was able to escape persecution on account of her royal connections. Bathory passed away in the castle in 1614, but visitors, particularly women, still feel her presence today.
