Stars: Robert Englund, Timothy Grant, Zach Ball

ll through his profession, Robert Englund has performed numerous horrifying characters, probably the most well-known of which being Freddy Krueger from the A Nightmare on Elm Road sequence. The actor is so intrinsically linked with the horror style, in reality, that his newest mission, Journey Channel’s True Terror with Robert Englund, permits him to play an exaggerated model of himself as he introduces audiences to numerous unsettling and unexplained incidents all through historical past, lots of which rival the horror of the fictional narratives Englund has dropped at life. Whereas the sequence itself won’t have the thrills of his big-screen efforts, the sequence will certainly be a success with Unsolved Mysteries and Englund fanatics, as others can be entertained and educated.

Every episode of True Terror options quite a lot of tales ripped from our nation’s previous, all of that are launched and narrated by Englund. The sequence premiere, for instance, encompasses a man who feels as if a dream has prophesized his demise, making him afraid of his impending doom, whereas one other stricken man finds himself going through his personal burial, although he does not have the power to cease it from taking place. All through every phase, dramatizations of the occasions are depicted alongside interviews with specialists in otherworldly encounters, whereas headlines supply proof to again up the weird occurrences.

Each in idea and in execution, True Terror serves because the inheritor obvious to Robert Stack’s iconic Unsolved Mysteries, virtually to the purpose that it feels as if it might have handed with the title “Unsold Mysteries: Origins.” This is not to say that this sequence is a lesser model of the cult basic and even an imitator, however speaks extra to the legacy that Stack created.

The varied tales inside every episode run the gamut of ghosts to murderers to demons to monsters, because the historic premise of the sequence permits it to extra successfully convey fantastical occasions that date again centuries. The disadvantage to the extra dated materials, nonetheless, implies that the manufacturing worth suffers barely when trying to recreate historic settings, but this additionally permits the sequence to maintain a playful spirit, because it by no means takes itself too significantly. True Terror, as evidenced by the title, is not trying to floor its occasions in actuality, however as an alternative highlights the possibly faulty chronicling of unusual occasions all through historical past. Whereas its many tales may be backed up by headlines, it shines extra of a lightweight on how inaccurate the analysis in earlier time intervals has been. Very like the myths of dragons have been related to dinosaur bones, it is easy to see how a newspaper in unenlightened instances might credit score unusual occasions to spirits or monsters. Conversely, the sequence additionally reveals how unbiased reporting might have been, as a witness encountering what they believed to be a supernatural power was reported as such, as an alternative of skepticism discovering different explanations for the supposed incidents.

Englund makes an ideal narrator, figuring out precisely when to supply a extra goal recounting of the occasions and when to crank up the creepiness. With lots of his introductions, he’s highlighted by an ominous backdrop, channeling his internal Rod Serling from his time on The Twilight Zone, regardless of every of the episodes of that sequence being fully fictional. We are able to solely hope {that a} subsequent season might permit Englund to play a bodily position in future episodes, whether or not or not it’s to cameo as a background actor or to bodily enter or exit a tableau in honor of Serling.

The place True Terror falls in need of its contemporaries is that, by nature of its premise, it typically lacks any interviews with the individuals immediately concerned with the occasions, calling the legitimacy of every occasion into query. Related sequence can see victims expressing their disbelief and supreme acceptance of unusual encounters, with the detachment between the current day and the unusual experiences in historical past forcing viewers to place extra religion in the authorities chatting with the occasions, with some audiences absolutely being extra skeptical than others.

For those who’re trying to have a really terrifying expertise, different applications will serve you higher, however for viewers who cannot resist creepily campy tales plucked from historical past, you are in luck with True Terror, a compilation of campfire tales made all of the extra compelling by Englund’s charisma and gleeful malice.
