Slaughterhouse Three
23 October 2015 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

Just in time for Halloween comes this new game show from GSN. A team of three contestants confronts its fears and tries to accomplish tasks for money. As they cope with creepy sounds, unexpected scares, darkness and the usual horror tropes, the contestants are taken to different floors of an industrial building where they must--one at a time--complete timed missions for cash rewards.

The challenges are legitimate puzzles and they cleverly relate to the theme of the particular episode. Those who fail are eliminated. The team members who complete their tasks advance to the final round--the Labyrinth--where they can gather more cash.

Watching others negotiate the haunted house-like set does not have the immediacy of walking through a haunted house yourself. And since you have no control over the contestants, the viewer is not as invested as when playing a video game in the horror genre. It is more like watching a horror film.

The two hosts, dubbed the "Twisted Twins", goad the contestants throughout the show, trying to play on their fears. Unfortunately, they sound like Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie, so some viewers will probably find them superfluous or annoying.

Some who enjoy game shows may enjoy "Hellevator" (the money winnings available are significant), but it seems best suited to those who like the horror genre. Personally, I am not a devotee. This show is probably best watched at night in a darkened room.
