Watch Scare Tactics instead!
26 October 2019 | by vannaspieringsSee all my reviews

I love prank shows and love Gaten Matarazzo but he really screwed the pooch with this one. Why does he narrate everything that's happening? The constant "cut back to *insert name*" or "Cue the scare in 3... 2... 1" not only ruins the surprise for the viewer but also makes it feel very child-like. We can see for ourselves what is happening. Scare Tactics over this any day!

Some of the pranks have great potential but are not really well-executed. Like there is a long backstory in several episodes and then all these details are not really used to their full potential Of course we want it to be weird and stuff you wouldn't believe, but this takes it to a whole new level of unbelievable.

Also it is widely advertised on Instagram and by Gaten himself that "nothing like this has ever been done". Seriously?

But yeah, still entertaining if you have nothing to watch.
