Ghost Adventures Tonight: Poveglia

Tonight's Ghost Adventures investigation is a dream come true for Zak, Nick, and Aaron.

Poveglia Island is an infamous hotspot of paranormal activity so enshrouded in controversy that Venetian locals and tourists alike are banned from visiting!  The team's experiences were so intense, they decided not to include some scenes.

At one point, Zak is overcome with anger and hatred.  He believes he was taken over by a demonic spirit.  He chose not to include all that happened in the episode because it is so personally disturbing.  It is the first experience to ever force the team to pause an investigation out of fear for their safety!

On Poveglia is an insane asylum built on the bones and ashes of thousands of Bubonic plague victims.  Countless more died on the island from war, tsunamis, and murder.

Many of the locals in Venice refuse to even talk about Poveglia.  During the plagues, those who showed signs of the illness were taken to the island against their will and left to die.  Their bodies were burned and buried.
