Please don't list this on a work's page as a trope. Examples can go on the work's YMMV tab.
Nightmare Fuel: Ghost Adventures
This trope naturally applies to a show attempting to record evidence of paranormal activity for haunted houses. And although Ghost Adventures is sometimes overshadowed by other ghost-hunting shows, it captures a lot more solid evidence.

S01 — The Beginning
The documentary filmed prior to the series can be terrifying when watching it after several episodes of the show beforehand - you become used to seeing the guys as confident and able to work through their fears. But at the Goldfield Hotel, a spirit throws a brick in full view of the camera and their flashlights, and they run - correction, they haul ass, even getting separated and lost in the basement in the process. Hearing their frightened voices as they call to each other, trying to find one another is absolutely terrifying. Zak and Nick (Aaron wasn't on this investigation) actually jumped out of a second story fire escape, abandoning the lockdown.
Footage from their first investigation of the Silver Queen Hotel. When the team hears knocking on the door, a white hand manifests right next to it.

Then he suddenly wanders off in the opposite direction and the next thing you know, his buddies have found him sitting in the middle of some random room with his eyes glowing. Granted, the ghost in question seemed to be that of the victim and trying to protect Zak and the crew, but the image of him sitting serenely with eyes glowing like something out of a horror movie, seemingly focused on something nobody else can see, while he smiles this almost demonic smile and tells his buddies that he's perfectly fine...

303 — Poveglia Island
The "incident" on Poveglia Island was a million times worse - at Preston, it was just a spirit possession. On Poveglia, it was a demonic possession—out of nowhere, Zak started screaming and cursing at the other investigators, who are also his friends. He hurled himself at the walls, and the look on his face... Not only did they leave out most of the footage because they were so uncomfortable watching it, they stopped an investigation for the first time to perform a cleansing ritual. Although there have been later catches of EVPs in English, Poveglia has been closed for centuries, so the odds of someone dying who speaks English on the island are pretty unlikely.

And during the investigation, another EVP of "I hate Nick" was captured. It's the personalized message that makes it particularly disturbing.

416 — Goldfield
They catch an EVP saying "You're fuckin' in my house." You'd think its spine-shivering ability would be dulled by the fact that it requires censoring, but the menace is all in the last three words - the voice gets low, gravelly and distorted at the end, the sound of either static or the voice being something demonic.
And, for that matter, at one point the PX device, which allows spirits to manipulate energy to vocalize words audible to our ears, go absolutely nuts. The PX is a new device, but it's similar enough to other devices they've used that when it emits a long ear-piercing shriek of feedback, you know it's not supposed to be doing that.
Almost every message the PX gives them is pretty nightmarish...
The censorship makes things worse for some people: Some other episodes aired unclear EVP profanity uncensored, but this was clear enough that the censorship team was effectively admitting "something is cursing. Therefore, something is there".
416 — Evidence
EVP (After their first visit): "Thank You But We've Done It"
Moving Object: A rock is thrown up the stairs at Nick

Its dark and demented history. That is all.

This episode reveals that they actually refuse to go back inside Bobby Mackey's again, Nick having even sworn to his wife that he wouldn't. What they've experienced there is enough to scare them all enough to never go in there again. And they wanted to pay their respects to the deceased Carl Lawson, who was possessed by demonic spirits while he worked there, who died months before this investigation.
