The horror anthology series will take the form of scripted shorts produced by Eli and his accredited team, and with featured commentary from Zak himself, a devoted collector of the macabre. The tales will be based on real-life haunted items from Zak's museum vaults as the television ghost hunter shares the secrets and stories behind a curated selection of his most prized haunted items.
Zak's extensive collectibles, numbering in the thousands, are exhibited across the 30-room, 14,000-square-foot mansion near Charleston Boulevard and 6th Street in Vegas. The attraction houses thousands of items from supposedly haunted and demonically possessed objects to rare collectables links true crime to Hollywood pop culture and haunted history.
The attraction is said to be packed full of so many disturbing haunted items that guests are required to sign a waiver to enter and under 16 year olds are not allowed in.
Eli said, "I've 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."
Zak added, "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."
There's more from Zak and Eli on Discovery+ this October as 'Eli Roth Presents: A Ghost Ruined My Life'. The eight hour-long episodes share the shocking stories of hauntings that have left emotional (and sometimes physical) scars on those unlucky enough to have experienced them. Equal parts terrifying and evocative, every episode will expose viewers to the real-life stories of survivors who have been dragged through hell and back and now struggle to rebuild their shattered lives.
'The Haunted Museum' will be available to stream on demand for Discovery+ subscribers in the UK and US from Saturday, October 2. 'Eli Roth Presents: A Ghost Ruined My Life' comes to the streaming platform a few days later on October 8.
