Don't laugh. You could be next...
25 April 2003 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This is a fun show indeed. Hostess Shannen Doherty is wicked funny. I love the twinkle-in-her-eye confidence as she matter-of-factly outlines for us, the viewers, just how some unlucky schmuck is going to get the sh*t scared out of him or her. She really REALLY looks like she is enjoying this job! (Reminds me of a line from an early Brad Davis war movie, "A Rumor of War" (1980): "Ambush is killing and killing is fun!!").

And, truthfully, I can't help but admit that I actually enjoy watching all those poor victims get the bejesus scared out of them. Some of their facial expressions are priceless.

So far the episode I liked best was the one where the group picked up that weird hitchhiker, then he gets out to go take a leak, and in the meantime the people back in the van look in his duffel bag and find a severed human head.

But hey, don't laugh. You could be next!
