This round we asked: What is the best way to scare trick-or-treaters?

Contestant 1

The best way to scare trick-or-treaters would be to secretly place fake plastic insects, such as cockroaches, in their candy buckets. This would be funny because many people are afraid of ugly insects, so imagine how freaked out they would be when they reached into take a sweet! If I were the unlucky kid who got tricked, I would be scared and super disgusted!

Contestant 2

To have a little fun, I'd respond to their "trick-or-treat" with my own trick. I'd transform my flat into a haunted house, with no lights - the only light source would be red glow sticks. I'd hang a bleeding rubber hand on the doorknob and stick a fake eyeball at the peephole. If the trick-or-treaters still dared to press the doorbell, I'd open the door and scream "trick-or-treat" until they offered me treats from their baskets.

Contestant 3

I would dress up like Candy Face, a character inspired by the TV series Sonny with A Chance. Legend says he is a man who had candy melted into his face and that he murdered everyone who laughed at his face. Surely there's nothing scarier than going trick-or-treating and finding a man wearing a candy face mask coming out with a knife, asking if you want to eat his face?

Contestant 4

The best way to scare trick-or-treaters? Why, with hospitality, of course! Answer the door with a cheery smile. Show them the sweets, and beckon them into your cosy den. Smile widely, all teeth and pleasantries, and let your body language do the talking. Ask your trick-or-treaters to sit on the sofa, and you take a seat directly in front of them. Offer them tea - "Yes dear, drink it all up" - and keep smiling! Dim the lights. Lock the front door. And never stop smiling!

Contestant 5

I would reroute the electrical wires outside my home, so that when those pesky children press my doorbell and ask for candy, there would be a short circuit and all the lights along the corridor would go off. This would leave the sweet-seekers groping their way in the darkness. This iconic horror movie scenario would surely scare them for the rest of their lives, and maybe put them off sugar!
