True Horror

Anthony Michael Head (Giles on Buffy The Vampire Slayer) will host a new show on The Discovery Channel called "True Horror," which is like a television version of my blog.

Presented by British actor Anthony Stewart Head, who is well-known for his role as Professor Rupert Giles (“watcher”) in the hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the grisly documentary will attempt to unravel any possible truth behind vampires, demons, witches, zombies and werewolves. For the documentary, Head travelled to Britain, Italy, Haiti, Romania and Syria and interviewed the head of the Vatican’s exorcism division, chief druids, theologians, archaeologists and even villagers. “I interviewed a criminal pathologist in a morgue in Romania. He said the symptoms and condition of a body after death can be mistaken for vampirism. The experience is so real yet unbelievable when you get to examine a dead boy to that extent,” said Head in a recent telephone interview. snip THE first episode of True Horror looks at demons as presenter Anthony Head travels to the ancient temple of Palmrya in Syria to uncover the history of fallen angels. The world of demons forces him to confront events and realities that can never be fully explained and which still has the power to scare us all. From shape-shifting druids to modern-day killers, Head reveals the truth behind werewolf myth in the second episode of the documentary. Starting in ancient Greece, he shows us how the first werewolf stories date back more than 2,000 years and discovers that the impact of these early stories was so great that they even appear in the Bible!
Now THAT sounds like must-see TV
