RATING CREEP SHOWS ON THE FRIGHT METERF13 Series rated 2 1/2 out of 4. Description: "Not a hockey mask in sight as two cousins and an old coot track down devil-damned antiques. A goofy concept, but it results in some mindless madness as victims are possessed by the curious curios. The pop-eyed leads grow on you and the show seems better. One recent episode, in which a radio caused mental patients to imagine their worst fears, was neato.
