Japanese TV Pranksters Trap Terrified Victims in a Haunted Elevator

Last summer, we showed you a clip from a completely deranged Japanese hidden-camera show, where they unleashed a rampaging dinosaur through the hallways of an ordinary office building with hysterical results. The creators of that program apparently weren't satisfied with their victims (labeled “targets” on the show) nearly wetting themselves in terror; they wanted an even more dramatic reaction... so they came up with this new sadistic scenario.
 
Capitalizing on the natural scare factor that comes from being trapped in an elevator, the producers decided to add a couple of new ingredients to this particular stunt: 1) a sudden and total blackout; and 2) a grimacing, bleeding and very pissed-off ghost.
 
Like the dinosaur prank, it's up for debate as to whether the “targets” in this episode are actors or truly innocent victims... all I can say is that the dude in the final segment is my new hero. Watch:
