True Terror with Robert Englund looks at phone calls from the dead, a terrifying serial killer running amuck in New Orleans and a Florida scientist who believes in keeping the ones he holds dear near…even after death.
True Terror with Robert Englund returns. This week’s episode deals with “Cryptic Messages.” If you enjoy Rod Serling, specifically his Night Gallery series, you are going to love this show’s segments.
In the first installment, a businessman named J.J. O’Connor owns a cemetery in Newark, N.J. Wanting to make his life easier by not traveling two miles down the road to constantly check on his office, he has two telephones installed.
Now, at the time, Alexander Graham Bell’s invention was in its infancy. So, to have one in a house back in the 1800’s was a luxury. At first, O’Connor loved his phone because he was able to save money by letting his messengers go. He also got to spend more time with his wife.
While everything appeared to be going along swimmingly, the O’Connor’s began to receive incessant calls in the middle of the night. However, every time J.J. answered the phone, all that can be heard on the other end of the line is loud static. Was this a prank or something far more sinister?

The Ax Murderer of New Orleans may have taken a page out of Jack the Ripper’s book to say the least. This fiend terrorized the Big Easy and almost brought it to a screeching halt.
Is he a man or a demon like he claims? This particular tale will make your hair stand on end.
Finally, a radiology technician named Carl Tanzler believed that he could heal a tuberculosis patient that he was treating. However, none of his remedies worked and she died.
Heartbroken, Carl vowed that he would never be apart from his beloved, even in death. What he does to keep the love of his life with him forever is shocking.
