Fear’s new season starts tonight with a visit to a haunted cement factory.
The new eight-episode season of Fear starts tonight. Six twenty-somethings will explore–in the dark and alone–the allegedly haunted Duggan Bros. Cement Factory. After the episode, at 9 p.m. EST, the cast will be at mtv.com to chat about their experiences. Also, this morning at 9:30, check out The Other Side of Fear, a half-hour special about the people behind the scenes of the show. They get just as freaked out–in the daytime and with other people around them–while they set up for the show’s episodes.
