In Fear of "Fear"

13:Fear Is Real, the newest reality show not yet on the air sounds like psycho killer's porn. I mean, really. Let's get 13 people and see how many of them wet their pants in 60 minutes of airtime.

The premise is that each episode will be based on a different horror movie. So I guess if your dream was to be stuck in some horror movie, this should be right up your alley. Hey, maybe they'll do 30 Days of Night. (For those of you who haven't watched 30 Days of Night, it is, without question the most gruesome vampire movie I have ever watched. Make that, ever witnessed. It is a real blood bath, which takes place in a small Alaskan town during their annual month without sun, i.e., 30 Days of Night.) They can take these poor saps up to the Alaska or the Antarctic and chase them down like dogs. The ones with their jugular still intact at the end of the hour, get's the money! They don't even need a bunch of film crews. They can shoot it just like that big blood bath scene via helicopter. At the bottom of the screen they can have the face of the contestant with the color of their jacket. That way we can tell them part and won't have to guess on arterial splatter! Hey--maybe I should start writing for TV!

Seriously, one of the promo's has some poor gal in a coffin. Hope these people have great insurance waivers and more lawyers than contestants. But I guess with Survivor loosing its appeal, the freaks at reality TV had to come up with something new. So, all you freaks out there that haven't gotten up the courage to move beyond your neighbors cats and puppies, maybe this show will give you some fun ideas.

It's a brave new world out there.
