Robert Englund who played the legendary Freddy Kreuger in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is to bring his talents to the Travel Channel as he narrates tales that focus on the strange and unexplained but are grounded in reality.

True Terror With Robert Englund is a six part series that releases in the US on March 18th and the tales will be brought to life through re-enactments featuring all sorts of supernatural.

“I’m calling it a dark docudrama-Twilight Zone” says Englund “What I like about it is, even though it’s myths and legends, they all were reported in a newspaper. They have a certain journalistic-reportage-cred that I think differentiates it from a show about UFOs or paranormal [activity].”

Tales in the series include; the story of an axeman serial killer, an undertaker defiling the dead, a family being stalked by a mythical creature and a farmer battling a strange curse among many more.
