Storyline

True stories of murder and mayhem morph into urban legends like the bogeyman or the monster under the bed - haunting our childhoods and scaring us throughout our lives. Investigation Discovery's (ID) upcoming series TRUE NIGHTMARES brings to life the true stories that spawned these hair-raising tales, proving once again that truth will always be scarier than fiction. Performer Todd Robbins, best known for his fascination with eccentric and arcane forms of entertainment, brings his shadowy and sardonic self to deliver six spine-tingling episodes, revealing that sometimes, our fears aren't mere figments of our imagination after all. Acting as an on-screen narrator, Robbins appears in and out of scenes, using his ominous tone and eerie charisma to masterfully weave together three stories each hour, playfully hinting that there is always more to the story to reveal.

Very interesting and very good!
21 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've always loved shows like the "Twilight Zone;" "Tales from the Crypt;" "The Night Gallery;" "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and "Tales from the Darkside," and, this series has elements of all of these...except, the stories here are TRUE!

Todd Robbins even hosts and presents the series in a 'Rod Serling'-'Crypt Keeper'-'Alfred Hitchcock' semi-comedic fashion, much like he does on "1,000 Ways To Die."

In this day and age, I was so surprised to find such an interesting series of crazy stories that reflect the five above mentioned series that I've been watching for years...decades.

Check it out if you like twisted stories and the like; but, remember, these stories are true and once really happened which makes them even more disturbing.

10 out of 10 - A+
