Every Halloween for the past few years, Ellen DeGeneres has sent some reluctant victims through a haunted house maze for her TV show. This year was no exception.

This year, DeGeneres sent her executive producer Andy Lassner to Universal's Halloween Haunted Horror Nights. Lassner decided to take Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet along with him for protection. The pair went through two mazes: The Walking Dead and Halloween. In both, they scream a lot, cringe in fear and try unsuccessfully to not be startled.

I kind of enjoy when Lassner just screams "Stop it!" at the scare actors.

Here's Halloween:

And here's The Walking Dead:

Four years ago, DeGeneres sent one of her writers, Amy, through the house. She dressed up like a reporter and screamed all the way through.

To be fair, the Ellen victims are forced to go through the mazes alone, whereas we were allowed to shuffle through with many others when we checked out the mazes.

However, we still suggest to Lassner and company that they not try Heretic House, where a naked women will claw you and vomit blood on you, or any of Los Angeles' more extreme haunts!
