ok.. i know i'll get tomatos thrown at me for this, but i really did like this show.. not becuz it was scary, but becuz i wanted to go on it to beat those lil wimps and get easy cash! in all honesty the idea of it's not bad, i mean, avg regular people get to go somewhere 'haunted' and do lil errands to make it a show, if they were to actually take some time with that premise, it would def get ratings... or maybe i'm just having wishful thinkin Confused

Shut up!

Actually, I liked the show too. I have a very active imagination though, I can see why most people would think it's stupid. This sort of show freaked me out, like Blair Witch.

I dug the show, but I thought they went for the cheep theatrics too often. However, some of the places they went I'd pay an enormous amount of cash to spend the night in.

God, I miss this show. Always wanted to be on it. I was convinced with the right arsenal (of chemicals), not only could I get all the way through and score the cash, but I could also garner the highest ratings the series had ever seen.

LMAO, yea i know, i woulda soooo taken on a 'dramatic' role just to make it a memorable episode, and i woulda also scared the other people out their minds to make sure the cash was completely mine!

Ehh the only seemed to pick people that scared very easily. If I recall right, I think they even had a very religious person do some satanic ritual one episode, heh.

REALLY loved that show. My friends and I would actually get together each week to watch it and turn off the lights and make a night of it. Anyone know where I can find copies o fthe episodes, seems MTV doesn't want to release them.

Anyone catch the other shows at the time that were spin-off and wanna-be's of the show. "Scariest Places on Earth"? I believe there was one or two more...if fact, ONE was a reality show where they made the place SEEM haunted and waited to see who would chicken out first. Anyone remember the name of that? Not the show on Sci Fi, either. This was strictly a haunted house show, they would drop the temp in certain rooms and broadcast scary ghostly noises and such.

See, if there's going to be reality TV...this is what I want.

The show was fun to a point but the bits about religion could have been left out, especially when they started getting their facts wrong.

What it really needed was the occasional death, totally accidental of course...

Yea! I loved the show a lot. Don't know why it canceled. It seemed the ratings were there.
I remenber MTV did a recap or (reunion ) type of episode of sorts, were they the producers grabbed most of the dudes & dudets from all seasons, put them on a simple stage setting.
Seems that one girl from a past episode got possessed by an unseen spirit
She was still freaked out about it and broke down in tears from the experience.
Either this was real or fake-the girl deserves an Oscar. Laughing

Loved it back then.

Caught an episode of it on VHS, and I think it's really shitty.

Such a good premise, but dumb. A bunch of yuppies arguing, and they hear a slight noise and go running and screaming like an idiot. So staged.

"Fear" was a great show; I don't know how much of it was legit, but it was fun to watch. The best episode was the one at the silver mine in Mexico (or the southwest) where the contestants had to deal with these Native American demons. That one was actually scary; matter of fact, they all freaked out and left. Later on a second group tried it and finished all the tasks, but they were pretty shell-shocked when it was over.

Now, what we need is a VH1 celebreality "Fear". Flava Flav, Chyna, Verne Troyer, Omarosa, Vanilla Ice and Ron Jeremy all sent to investigate haunted locations! "Mini-me" pisses in a Waverly Hills hallway...Flava Flav keeps asking ghosts "What time is it?!?!?" That would be great.
