Scare Tactics 3

Scare Tactics is a hidden camera prank show that puts victims into terrifying situations, usually involving movie-style special effects and makeup that recreates horror movie clichés. The victims, generally four per episode, are set up by friends/family in tandem with producers. The victims on the show are lured to a location, either invited there by people they know (who were in on the act), or reporting for what they thought was a new job. Soon they experience some kind of terrifying scene-like a strange monster, a terrible accident, or a violent crime being committed-all of which is staged while the victim is secretly being recorded. The pranks end when the victim is completely terrified and someone would ask them, "Are you scared?" to which they usually reply in the affirmative. They then get the reply, "You shouldn't be! You're on Scare Tactics!"
