VitalyzdTv's Chainsaw Massacre Prank Brings a Movie Horror to Life

Most people are thankful that when they watch a horror movie, what they see on-screen stays inside the TV—but the Chainsaw Massacre Prank from VitalyzdTv on YouTube brings some terrifying scares into real life.

The prank was set up in collaboration with Nick Santonastasso, a 17-year-old teen with a rare birth defect that was enhanced with makeup, props, costumes and in the spirit of Halloween, plenty of fake blood. The prank is simple and yet still terrifying, since it involved Santonastasso crawling the ground of an underground parking lot, making it look as though he'd been chopped to pieces by the madman with the chainsaw behind him. As you might expect, people were easy to scare and run away as fast as they possibly could.
