FRIGHTENING TALES OF CURSED OBJECTS ARE BROUGHT TO LIFE IN NEW SCRIPTED HORROR SERIES, "THE HAUNTED MUSEUM," FROM "GHOST ADVENTURES" STAR ZAK BAGANS AND FILMMAKER ELI ROTH

Nine-Part Series Presents a Terrifying Anthology of Short Horror Films Inspired by the Haunted Artifacts in Zak Bagans' Las Vegas Museum - Launching Saturday, October 2 on discovery+

NEW YORK (September 17, 2021) - Horror-loving fans get ready as renowned filmmaker Eli Roth and paranormal investigator and GHOST ADVENTURES host Zak Bagans team up in THE HAUNTED MUSEUM, a spine-chilling new scripted series that brings to life the terrifying tales of the world's most haunted and cursed artifacts. Launching with two episodes on Saturday, October 2, exclusively on discovery+ during the streamer's "Ghostober" event, the nine-episode series features a collection of short horror films inspired by the frightening relics on display in Zak Bagans' Haunted Museum in Las Vegas. Each episode presents a chilling cinematic story of a ghoulish object from Bagans' eerie collection, scripted and produced in collaboration with Eli Roth and featuring exclusive commentary from Bagans about its hellish history.

An enthusiast for all things haunted, Zak Bagans has amassed a collection of thousands of creepy artifacts from all over the world, exhibited across a sprawling 30-room, 14,000-square-foot mansion museum. Here, brave visitors come face-to-face with a plethora of spooky memorabilia that span paranormal legends, true crime, Hollywood pop culture and haunted history. But among these relics are a group of items that are particularly sinister, inducing nightmarish experiences - fainting spells, chills, convulsions, scratches and disturbing bad luck.

Now, these cursed objects take the spotlight in THE HAUNTED MUSEUM, as Zak Bagans and Eli Roth join forces to tell their ominous stories in a frightening format. Roth - the modern master of horror and creative force behind such films as "Cabin Fever" and "Hostel" - along with his accredited team of writers present the frightful tales behind Bagans' most feared items through innovative and evocative horror shorts. Experience the supernatural scares behind Peggy the Doll, the Devil's Rocking Chair, Charles Manson's cursed television, an antique mirror with an evil attachment, the Westerfeld dollhouse, a wooden tribal cursed statue, "spiritual equipment" that may be a portal to a demonic dimension, the Demon House staircase and the infamous Dybbuk Box.

"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. I am so excited to bring these terrifying stories to homes in time for Halloween. Working with Zak has been a scream, he was so helpful in guiding the stories of these horrific objects that most people would be too scared to even look at. There has never been a show where you can see a terrifying story and then visit the real cursed object in person after, if you dare. I stand behind my claim this will be the scariest show you will watch this Halloween season."

Yet all is not well within his own house, as his daughter begins to experience terrifying visions that she fears may be something incredibly evil. Following his discovery of a secret spell hidden within the dollhouse, the father embarks on his most dangerous course of action yet, using the spell and the power contained within the dollhouse in an attempt to raise the spirit of his dead wife.
