The terrifying tales of the world’s most haunted objects come to life in The Haunted Museum.
The new discovery+ series will see renowned filmmaker Eli Roth team up with Ghost Adventures host Zak Bagans. Haunted Museum will actually be nine mini-horror films, each inspired by different frightening relics housed at Bagans’ Las Vegas museum.
A longtime haunting enthusiast, Bagans amassed a collection of thousands of objects from all over the world. The spooky memorabilia now fills the 30-room, 14,000 square foot mansion museum. Among these relics are a few particularly sinister items, which Bagans chose to explore for this new series.
“While all of the collectables in my museum have dark and unusual backstories, these items are especially fearsome because of the intense, evil energy they contain,” said Bagans. “Their power is scary as hell, and I’ve never seen anything like it. Eli Roth is a mastermind at authentically evoking this terror and the very real fear brought on by these objects through his incredible visual storytelling. The horror is palpable. This is the scariest thing you will ever watch.”
“Never before have I been involved as a producer in a project this scary,” added Roth. “I believe this show could go down as one of the scariest anthology horror television shows of all time.”
Take a sneak peek at the horrors to come in The Haunted Museum below.
