You may have seen him on Investigation Discovery’s “True Nightmares,” lurking in the shadows. Todd Robbins is a host, an illusionist, and an altogether intriguing storyteller. We caught up with the mysterious magician to uncover more about the man behind the nightmares. How does one become a magician and illusionist? TR: I was tricked into it. What’s your favorite food – or Halloween candy? TR: Pumpkin pie made from fresh pumpkins. You cut open the top, scoop out the guts and make the pie. It’s like doing a lobotomy and getting dessert at the end of it. If you could have dinner with any three people, living or dead, who would they be? TR: P.T. Barnum, Harry Houdini, and Edgar Allan Poe. Which character from “True Nightmares” fascinates you the most? TR: Belle Gunness. There was no end to her evilness. What’s your favorite urban legend? TR: The man waking up in a bathtub filled with ice, as featured on ID’s Halloween Scare-a-thon. What three items would you want with you on a deserted island? TR: Bourbon, cigars and a deck of cards. What else does one need anywhere? Are you superstitious? TR: No, I am not, knock wood.
