Hometown Horror

Image 1 / 1

Many white picket fence communities across America are gripped with tales of horror, mystery and intrigue that have lingered over these towns for centuries – dark forces haunting unassuming communities with stories of the undead, ghouls, monsters and things that go bump in the night. “Hometown Horror” delves into these quiet communities to examine what is behind these stories and myths, and to shine a light on what may be lurking in the shadows of small-town America – such as the Pigman of Angola in New York, the hauntings of circus town Baraboo, Wisconsin, the blood-stained history of Perryville, Kentucky, and more. [Hour-long episodes]

 

SERIES PREMIERE: “The Pigman” – Premieres Friday, October 11 at 11 p.m. ET/PT

Angola, a small town in upstate New York, is stalked by a horrific apparition called The Pigman. Rumored to be a disfigured butcher with a taste for blood, he's deeply interconnected with a deadly train accident that shook the town 150 years ago.
