freaky stuff happens on Fear.
Usually, the fear on MTV’s Fear is psychological; we don’t really see ghosts or anything more than the cast freaking out (although that can be scary enough). But in last night’s episode, aboard the USS Hornet, one cast member used her “powers” as a medium to talk to spirits, who told her the location of a hidden key and lead her to another cast member who was locked in a cell–before the show’s instructional computer told any of them about the key. I, for one, am hoping that was just clever editing, because otherwise, it’s way too freaky.
