'Ellen' Writer Goes Through Haunted House With Her Mother, Is Terrified (VIDEO)

The "Ellen" show has an eye for stuff that will be big on the Internet, so it's only fitting that they found a way to outdo themselves this Halloween after the success of their popular haunted house video.

For those who haven't seen last year's video, "Ellen" writer Amy is very easily scared. So of course they dressed her in an oddly Austin Powers-eque suit, gave her a microphone, and made her walk through a haunted house for our viewing pleasure. This year, they upped the ante by surprising Amy with the only adult human who's more of a scaredy cat than she is -- her mother!

Both ladies are tremendously good sports considering how genuinely freaked out they seem to be, which makes us feel better about laughing so hard at this video. They certainly give other haunted house reactions a run for their money.
