Plot Synopsis

In TRUE TERROR WITH ROBERT ENGLUND, 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. "Revealing the sinister side of our history, I'm thrilled to bring nightmares to life on TRUE TERROR," said host Robert Englund. "These are tales so terrifyingly twisted, we can only hope they stay on the blood-soaked pages of the newspaper headlines from our past."

In each one-hour episode, Englund weaves 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 leave viewers wishing the stories really were only in their dreams. Episodes include:

"Twisted Relationships" (Wednesday, March 18, 2020): The premiere episode 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.

"Fear the Unknown" (Wednesday, March 25, 2020): Two aging ranch hands battle a flying man-eater in the Arizona desert, a young Theodore Roosevelt trespasses into the lair of a half-human predator and demonic entities prey upon villagers in rural Pennsylvania.
