Over the course of the last few years – paranormal TV has really taken off – shows like Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Destination Truth, the list goes on literally forever, they are on almost every night of the week – and I love them all.
Yep, I’m a huge fan of Finding Bigfoot, Mountain Monsters – you name it – and it looks like this year I’m going to get to add another show to that list. True Terror – and it’s hosted by none other than horror legend Robert Englund.
The press release kind of lays it all out:
“Hidden away in the dark shadows of our nation’s history are tales so terrifying, they must be true. Now, veteran actor and legendary horror movie icon Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger of the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” franchise) scours news reports of yesteryear to bring viewers twisted tales ripped straight from the headlines in “True Terror with Robert Englund.” In each episode, Englund uses his ominous tones and creepy charisma to masterfully weave together a trilogy of spine-tingling tales, guided by newspaper accounts and layered with commentary from historians and experts that prove that truth is always stranger than fiction. From flying monsters to creatures in the night, to evil possessions and hauntings, these twisted tales will leave viewers wishing the stories really were only in their dreams. The six-part series “True Terror with Robert Englund” begins on Wednesday, March 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel.“
This is going to be a six-part series, which as you read above, kicks off on March 18th. Here’s the word n that first episode:
“The premiere episode, “Twisted Relationships,” airing on March 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, begins with a North Carolina storekeeper who is tormented by a prophetic countdown to his doom. Did he will his own fate, or was there a higher power at play? Then, a New Orleans teenager finds himself literally trapped inside a waking nightmare, unable to save himself from his horrific fate. Finally, an Atlanta police station becomes a battleground for a killer … and a vengeful spirit. Other stories this season include: a mechanical marvel that torments its owner; a shadowy serial killer known as “The Axeman” authors a letter that ignites panic; a farmer battles a devilish curse; a greedy undertaker defiles the dead – then faces their wrath; a future president enters a savage beast’s den; a family is stalked by a mythical creature and many more haunting stories you have to see to believe.”
I’m in – you in? Of course, you’re in – what kind of stupid question is that.
