The premise of the show will revolve around "the frightening stories behind the haunted relics on display at Zak Bagans' Haunted Museum in Las Vegas."
Bagans issued a statement on the show: "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."
Roth also issued a statement, praising Bagans and admitting he'd been a fan of his for years. "[I] absolutely love his passion, drive and incredible research on all things paranormal," he said. "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."
The horror director continued: "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."
