Scare Tactics, October 24 – Zombies and Bloody Walls, Just Another Day

 

So it’s zombie meets crazy people on tonight’s episode of Scare Tactics as the show does what it does best and scares the life out of people. The show features a victim, an accomplice and the freakout that tends to do more than just freak some people out.

On tonight’s episode, we start off with Leah who wants to scare her friend Kristie and put her outside of her comfort zone. In true “Scare Tactics” style, they have something quite obscure planned for Kristie. Why do these folks accept these crazy jobs? Are there no normal jobs? Kristie is led into a room, assisted by Lauren. THe room looks condemned, and a random vagrant shows up advising Kristie that it is a portal to a domain. Lauren tells Kristie there is black mold or maybe the plague. It could happen, right?

Blood begins coming out the wall, and Kristie stands there with her clipboard looking rather dumbfounded, as a construction worker advises in a CSI tone that blood is coming out of the wall. The crazy man enters the room, a pentagram is lit on fire, and Kristie is being offered up as a sacrifice. The crazy man watches the walls bleed, and Kristie is shaking while he asks if she is scared, because he wants to put her on Scare Tactics.

You watch these people enter these strange rooms that resemble something out of a Hostel film and they just go along with it. Scare Tactics makes the scenarios entertaining, but also teaches you what not to do. For instance don’t go with strangers and don’t accept a job in a room with walls that bleed; it should be a simple rule of thumb.

Our next victim is Gil, with his friend Giovanni entering him in Scare Tactics as a lab worker who will be testing medication that makes the male organ increase by five inches. So gullible, poor Gil, he should have run right out of the room. Bridgette enters the room, and Gil and Nathan are asked to give their arousal level as they look at random strange pictures of fruit and vegetables. Brigitte removes her lab coat to show a revealing ensemble and then a bikini. Really? Why don’t Gil and Nathan get up there and strip? Nathan begins to whine in pain while watching Bridgette strip.

Nathan keels over in pain, and blood is running down his legs. Gil begins flipping out, advising that he did not sign any papers. The lab tech tells him that the same thing will happen to him unless she does one thing and that is to put him on Scare Tactics. Gil seems freaked out as he watches Nathan on the floor bleeding. He is a good sport, though, despite this problematic situation for him.

We have exploding organs, strange rooms, and people in lab coats who sound more like actors than real doctors, and yet no one questions anything. Remind me not to trust my friends if they offer me a job!

Halloween always brings out the best in people, so adding a few zombies to the show is always a plus. Jeffrey is next, and his cousin Emily is putting him on the show to get back at him. Jeffrey believes in the supernatural and has a love of law enforcement. The crime being committed here is by zombies. Why do they always have to blame the zombies?

Jeffrey arrives at the makeshift crime scene, and a waitress comes out and begins crying, telling them how unreal and crazy it was. There was fighting, and now they need the crime scene unit to come in. Jeffrey and the cop find what looks like ribs, but I am not so sure. Where is Dr. Hannibal Lector or George Romero when you need them? The cop finds a drooling man who looks a little walking dead-ish and begins to attack and bite the cop while Jeffrey and the waitress stand there.

Jeffrey is just going over details of what the zombies are doing with a slight smirk on his face, and the zombies begin to ask if he is scared. He says yes! The zombies inform him he is on Scare Tactics. He takes it with a grain of salt, but advises he will be getting Emily back, so watch out Emily!

The next victim is Joey who does not trust the government (does anyone really?). His friend Ashley is setting him up to appear in an abandoned military warehouse to film TRUTHISODES, because the government is lying!

Joey happily volunteers and is joined by a cameraman and an interviewer. They start in the strange-looking elevator. Joey discovers pictures of bloody babies. It looks like a place you should not even go into without the military. Joey winds up in the dark and mentions right away that he is scared. They discover a new room with what appears to be a dead body, and the interviewer announces they are finding things they are not supposed to find.
