Scare Tactics: so scary, you'll laugh!
4 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is by far, the funniest "hidden camera" show I've seen. The plot is simple: A person has some one that they want to scare. Scare Tactics sets up the scene, as something will happen, that will scare the crap out of the victum, while making the viewer laugh so hard!

So far, the show has done:

A boyfriend and Girlfriend are set up to see Aliens come to earth, and the girlfriend nearly has a heart attack!

A man who can't speak english very well, goes to a coffin store, and his girlfriend gets locked inside, and ends up getting buried alive!

A sister sets up her brother to meet a crazed hitchicker who has a human head in his bag, which the brother sees and goes nuts.

A woman witnesses a kidnapping, and can't move afterwords.

Those are just a few. This is will make your primetime veiwing list! Scfi Ch. Friday nights, 9:00 p.m.
