PANICS is a machinima produced using the game F.E.A.R. It was created by Rooster Teeth Productions at the request of the developers of F.E.A.R. The series consists of 4 episodes and a bonus prologue episode that was realised with a special edition of the game itself.
The plot parodies that of the game, where a team of special ops guys investigate paranormal happenings. In PANICS (which stands for People Acting Normal In Crazy-Ass Situations) the Bravo team is investigating a facility that is haunted, though the Bravos don't seem to believe this. The ghost is quite real, and it brutally kills Bravo 1. The others don't know how to fight a ghost and soon their leader is dead and the others are randomly punching the air around them. Bravo 2 is killed in friendly fire and Bravo 3 is dispatched by the ghost. Only Frank remains. Later Alpha team discovers Frank, who has either been possessed or just has very sore eyes and is dehydrated.
