For ghost-chasing duo Sam and Colby, October is the most important month of the year

October is usually the busiest time of the year for the duo, and they spent months preparing for their return to Hell Week

Sam and Colby spent months preparing for their return to Hell Week.

Two graduates of Blue Valley High School have built a career and earned millions of followers by filming their journeys into the most haunted places on Earth.

As their YouTube channel surges past one billion lifetime views, paranormal investigators Sam Golbach and Colby Brock are unveiling their scariest spooky season so far.

Their latest Hell Week will include seven horror documentaries, released over the two weeks that began Oct. 16.

Originally, Sam and Colby started out making Vines with a comedy focus. But after hanging out at a couple of abandoned house with friends, the two realized they should start recording each other's reactions in those "scary" places.

"That kind of just like led us into this haunted world," Colby said.

Sam and Colby joined KCUR's Up To Date to reveal the steps it took to reach this level of success and the scariest places they've been on their journey so far.
