Join veteran actor and legendary horror movie icon Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger of the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” franchise), as he recounts history’s horrors in Travel Channel’s “True Terror With Robert Englund”. Englund scours news reports of yesteryear to bring viewers twisted tales ripped straight from the headlines of newspapers past.
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. Season one concludes this Wednesday, April 22 at 10/9c on Travel Channel.
The finale episode explores three stories of “Bad Omens,” otherworldly messages that something terrifying is coming our way and can be downright diabolical. The first story takes viewers back to the story of Taylor Jones who lost his wife and two young daughters to tuberculosis in rural Pennsylvania. Taylor heads to Kansas City, Kansas, to start a new life, but when he takes part in an unholy ritual, dark deeds lead to his demise. Then, bad dreams are products of stress, what if they’re ominous messages from powers far beyond our understanding? In Philadelphia in 1893, Julia Cook is haunted by a prophetic dream that foretells a gruesome death. Then, the final story of TRUE TERROR tells of John Blymer from York County, PA in the early 1900s who is convinced that a mysterious witchcraft has cursed him, driving him to insanity.
