Two New E! Specials Look Into Hollywood's Dark Side

Hollywood history can be pretty dark. Normally we just see all the glamour and lavish “stuff” celebrities have, but two new specials on E! airing just in time for Halloween, look at the more sinister side.

Premiering next Thursday, October 24 at 8 p.m. ET, the two-hour special “Secret Societies of Hollywood” takes a look “into the secret world of underground sex clubs and ultra-exclusive celebrity parties that only cater to the ultimate VIP scene.”

If you really want to know what goes on behind the scenes, this is a must-watch. From ultra-exclusive parties to secret political connections and wild sex clubs, this special dives in and exposes this darker side of Hollywood.

Following “Secret Societies of Hollywood” at 10 p.m. is “Hollywood Death Trip” with scream queen, Danielle Harris (“Halloween,” “Halloween II,” “Hallows’ Eve”). She takes a creepy jaunt with Dearly Departed Tours founder, Scott Michaels and visits Hollywood’s “most disturbing death sites while offering new insight into the unfortunate events that took place.”

During the one-hour special, Harris and Michaels explore the disturbing details surrounding the deaths of “Sons of Anarchy” actor Johnny Lewis; Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten; actress Brittany Murphy; and, Hollywood power player and publicist Ronni Chasen.

They’ll also look into the death of Ashley Ellerin, an aspiring actress who may have been the victim of the “Hollywood Ripper” right before Ashton Kutcher arrived for their first date.

If this dark side of Hollywood intrigues you, tune in to E! next Thursday, October 24, starting at 8 p.m. ET.
