A new horror anthology series produced in collaboration with filmmaker Eli Roth and paranormal investigator Zak Bagans is coming from discovery+ later this year entitled The Haunted Museum.
Anyone familiar with the Travel Channel’s long-running Ghost Adventures series is familiar with Bagans’ Haunted Museum location in Las Vegas, and now the many cursed objects in Bagans’ collection will be turned into a series of scripted shorts produced by Roth with featured testimony and commentary by the owner and curator of the Haunted Museum.
Some of the many infamous objects that will be featured include the Dybbuk Box, a carved wooden statue owned by actor Steve McQueen, the Westerfeld dollhouse, actor Bela Lugosi’s mirror, the Warren’s Devil’s Rocking Chair and more.
The combination mini-horror film/documentary series consists of a special two-hour debut episode, plus eight additional hour-long episodes.
Roth is excited for the opportunity to work with Bagans on the project, as he has “…been a fan of Zak for many years and absolutely love his passion, drive and incredible research on all things paranormal. He has amassed a collection unlike any in the world, and we are thrilled to tell the stories behind these truly terrifying objects. What I love most is that the objects are all real and that people can go and see them if they dare. Zak opened the vault to us to pick the scariest and most fascinating variety of objects, and we have an amazing team of filmmakers bringing these stories to life. The show will not be for the faint of heart. Some people have nightmares simply looking at photos of the objects, and now we will be able to tell the stories of how these objects came to be possessed by something truly terrifying.”
Bagans was equally complimentary about Roth, stating that “Eli Roth is a master of horror, and I couldn’t think of a more talented visionary to help bring the stories of my haunted collection to life. These are no ordinary objects, they impart fear and terror on those who come into contact with them. Now, with Eli’s expertise for thrill-provoking storytelling, viewers will get the ultimate frightening glimpse into their real horror.”
