They've been around since 2014 and their videos have garnered over 188 million views and they do a good job. Under the about us section it gives this description:

Come and join Taylor and Kyle as they meander their way through the hallowed halls of Horror Fictions and Fandom. Here at Top 5 Scary Videos, nothing is off the table when it comes to breaking down the things that go bump in the night, and then compiling them for your viewing enjoyment into a Top 5 Scary List. Be it horror cinema, Gothic literature, urban legends, creepy history or the mysterious tales of long lost civilization - we've got a list for you.

And thankfully a list of the "Top 5 Haunted Places in Minnesota You Should Never Visit" was among one of their videos. Uploaded just this year, on May 19, 2022 and has already gotten nearly 20,000 views. See if you agree or if you have actually visited any of on the list.
