True Horror

Children wake up screaming in the middle of the night, telling you they saw a monster. All you can tell them is that there’s nothing to worry about, that it isn’t real. But that’s not strictly true.

As we grow up, the monsters continue to haunt us and are given names that have echoed down the centuries: Werewolves that will rip out our throats, Vampires that will suck out our blood, Frankenstein's monster who’ll murder us in a dark alley. But it turns out that these familiar spine-chilling nightmares all have their origins in historical fact.

We invite you to confront the true face of horror, Combining heart stopping narrative drama with expert interviews, True Horror uncovers the inspiration behind of our most thrilling, visceral and iconic monsters: Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Werewolf. These stories will transport you to the haunted corners of our past and prove that fact is a whole lot more frightening than fiction.
