A&E Fear: Buried Alive Halloween show

Posted on

In case you thought Halloween would be less frightening this year, A&E has set out elevate the horror.

The network announced it will air Fear: Buried Alive, a practical experiment of immersion therapy, which is a way for people to conquer their fears by confronting them. The two-hour live (yes, live) event will feature three people locked in underground coffins.

That’s not all: The trio will also “endure a series of escalating horrors designed to test the strength of their psyches.” Oh, and the friends and family of those subjected to Beatrix Kiddo’s hell will be present.

Actor and noted horror director Eli Roth will appear to break down how he creates fear. Additionally, sociologist and fear researcher Dr. Margee Kerr crafted some of the situations and will be on hand.

Fear: Buried Alive will air Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. ET on A&E.
