It’s back! ABC Family premiered the unscripted prank show Freak Out during 13 Nights of Halloween. Now, the series is back with a vengeance. The show debuts bigger scares and even bigger reactions.
In each episode, an unsuspecting person or ‘mark’ is faced with their worst fears. You’re probably wondering who would set someone up to face their fears, but the culprits are usually the ones they love the most — their friends and family. Every prank is specifically catered to turn a normal everyday situation into someone’s worst nightmare. Freak Out captures each scenario, starting from the planning of the prank, until the mark discovers their worst nightmare is nothing more than a joke. Trust me, their reactions are priceless!
What sets Freak Out apart from other prank shows, like TruTv’s Impractical Jokers, is the fear factor that Freak Out brings to television. Not only are unsuspecting marks put in funny and embarrassing situations, but they are also scared out of their minds. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a spooky twist?
Catch Freak Out at 8:30/7:30c Wednesdays on ABC Family!
