WATCH: 'The Office' Webisode Ups the Ante for Halloween TV


We already know that NBC's The Office can be a wacky and scary place. Is there anything more terrifying than Angela's (Angela Kinsey) posters of dressed-up babies? More chilling than being flashed by Meredith (Kate Flannery)? More creepy than hearing Michael (Steve Carell) say he hopes to procreate? Just sharing office space with Creed (Creed Bratton) could make the spine tingle!

Still, in honor of Halloween, the show is upping the bloodcurdling ante with a horror-themed webisode called The 3rd Floor (available on Oct. 28 on The Office website). Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak) has written and directed his first film, a slasher flick starring Erin (Ellie Kemper) as the ultimate evil character: She is literally half Lizzie Borden, half Jeffrey Dahmer. Meredith appears to be some sort of one-eyed, mad genie; Angela and Kelly (Mindy Kaling) are seemingly innocent victims; while Kevin (Brian Baumgartner) plays a scarily mustachioed security guard.

"The 3rd Floor is a total horror experience via the mind of Ryan Howard -- a bright young talent with a brilliantly dark imagination," the website explains. It stands on its own, apart from Thursday's regular episode, which features the office costume party.

In fact, there are Halloween festivities taking place all over fictional TV on Thursday. There's a masquerade ball on The Vampire Diaries (The CW, Thursday, 8 p.m. ET), and a college Halloween party on Community (NBC, 8 p.m. ET) that turns several students into food-poisoned zombies. On Outsourced (NBC, 9:30 p.m. ET), Todd (Ben Rappaport) attempts to force his Indian employees to partake in Halloween -- a foreign concept to them. And on Private Practice (ABC, 10 p.m. ET), Violet (Amy Brenneman) dresses like a witch to go trick-or-treating with her son, Lucas, a pumpkin.

If you're into Halloween, then Thursday night's TV shows will be a real treat.
