People Are Calling Out This Haunted House For Being A Glorified 'Torture Chamber'

The 40-page waiver is absolutely nuts.

McKamey Manor, the ‘world’s scariest haunted house‘, in Summertown, Tennessee is being accused of being a glorified torture chamber with the actors allowed to physically harm those who take part.

In case you don’t believe how extreme this ‘haunted house‘ is, participants are asked to sign a 40-page waiver, undergo a sports fitness test, provide a doctor’s note, a safe word, proof they have medical insurance and a background check.

The waiver, shared by Facebook user Bethany Mcpherson, reveals that participants agree to the fact “a nail may pierce their hand”, “their hand may be smashed with tools”, and that they may “have a plastic bag on their face which could possibly cause suffocation, blackouts etc, and participants will not hold MM responsible or libel”.

Mcpherson shared the waiver, writing, “LETS KEEP EVERYBODY SAFE. If you’re thinking about going to the McKamey Manor aka ‘the worlds scariest haunted house’ that’s been shared around, just read these, this isn’t a haunted house, this is a torture chamber where they’re somehow legally allowed to torture people. Almost 100% of people who go end up with PTSD and need intense therapy. They’re allowed to whatever they want to you.”

One of the points on the waiver reads, “Participant fully understands and agrees that once participant enters MM there is no quitting unless serious physical or psychological injury is present.”

Other points suggest participants’ nails will be removed from their nail beds, they might be given medication to induce hallucinations, they might even end up having their teeth “extracted without Novocain” and “they may be fish hooked, which may inadvertently cause rippage to the mouth area”. Oh and they “will be participating in various medieval torture devices such as knife throwing while strapped to a spinning wheel”.

What kind of person thinks of these things?!

It’s so terrifying that anyone who makes it through the 10-hour ordeal will be awarded $20,000, not one person has ever earned that money.

Mcpherson also shared a Facebook comment that read, “They’ve balded people not by shaving, but by ripping hair out. They’ve pulled teeth and fingernails out. They have a history of r*pe and sodomy. They make you eat rotten food and if you puke, they make you eat that too.

“They don’t obey the safe word. They break bones. The man literally hires past violent criminals with both assault and sexual crimes. And they start the torture WHILE you’re reading the [waiver] so you can’t complete it.

“They also have a history of taking your allergies and using it AGAINST you. And the money is if you pass 10+ hours.”

McKamey Manor has a YouTube channel where they show viewers what the experience is like, here’s one he makes everyone watch if they want to do the tour:

The ‘haunted house’ featured on Netflix’s Dark Tourist hosted by David Farrier where he told viewers, “You really don’t want to do [this],” adding people flock to be tortured and terrorised “just for the fun of it”.

On the show, Farrier took part in the experience and spoke to owner Russ McKamey, who doesn’t charge people to take part, but does ask for a bag of dog food.

Farrier asked, “Is he a showman or psychopath?” To which McKamey responded, “I am an entertainer, a comedian, and this is nothing but showbiz to me. I just love entertaining.”

News.Com.Au reports there’s a waitlist of over 24,000 people who want to visit the Manor.

At the time the show was shot McKamey said he’d never had a participant die, but one person did suffer a heart attack in 2008.

In the episode, Farrier joins one of McKamey’s victims, but after being blindfolded and having a metal piece put into their mouths to keep them open, he calls it quits.

“I felt so terrified I couldn’t even think straight. Russ’s techniques are horrifically effective,” he said.

The cameras weren’t allowed to follow the victim who continued on to the Manor, however, a body cam showed him being dunked violently into ice cold water and being told to hold his breath for 30 seconds. After a few rounds of this, he also quit.

When he exited the manor he told the cameras, “Don’t come here.”

You don’t have to tell me twice!

Did A Live Fish Fall Out Of Sebastian Stan's Pocket?: An Investigation

And is it weird if it makes me like him even more?

I’ll admit, I didn’t think I’d be writing the words “did a live fish fall out of Sebastian Stan’s pocket?” today, but hey, this is where we’re at.

So, it all started when the gorgeous man that is Sebastian Stan was doing a panel at the Fandemic Tour in Houston when something fell out of his jacket pocket. While some reports have said they’re almonds (boring!), others are pretty damn sure it was a fish.

And I’ve got to admit, it does look like a wet live fish just jumped out of his pocket:

It does beg the question: why would a fish try so hard to get out of Stan’s pocket? That’s literally a place some of us can only dream of being.

Fans on Twitter have gone nuts over the ‘fish’:

While it most definitely looks like a wet fish is just flopping out of his pocket, a fan has taken to Twitter to share what he said after it happened, “I dropped my almonds! I wanna leave a trail of cashews and almonds behind when I’m an old person.”

Which is pretty damn cute if you ask me, but I’m still going to pretend it was a fish…

While he’s a household name now, according to ComicBook.Com, Stan felt like he played Bucky Barnes in the MCU for “at least two, three years” before anyone actually noticed him.

“It’s funny, we were at the autograph table an hour ago, and somebody turned to me at one point and said, ‘Did you ever think this was gonna happen?’ I was like, ‘No,’” Stan said with a laugh.

“I actually played this character for at least two, three years before I felt like people noticed.”

Stan has been part of the MCU since 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, but didn’t begin to get noticed for the role until Captain America: The Winter Solider in 2014.

“I mean, The First Avenger — maybe you guys have — but nobody was stopping me on the street.”

“I just treated it like any other character. I just wanted to honor the source material, and what Stan Lee had envisioned, and I was really lucky to have met him, and for him to kind of remind me: ‘Whatever you’re doing, just remember he’s a good guy.’ Because the Winter [Soldier] thing is kinda fun, but the guy inside is a good guy.

“But the MCU differs a little bit here and there, so we had to kind of adjust to that, and in the movie, Bucky Barnes was actually sort of a cooler guy and whatever. And that’s where we ended up today.”

He also went on to say how excited he is for his new Disney+ TV show The Falcon and the Winter Solider.

“I have seen [scripts] and I’m so excited about it. It’s going to be so cool and kind of crazy,” Stan said.

“All I can say is it’s just new and different from what you’ve seen so far. I mean, it will be totally in line with everything that has happened and what we’ve seen and so on, but these characters are getting such additional mileage in terms of learning about who they are now, what they feel, what they’re thinking, and there’s a lot of action, comedy — you know there’s going to be comedy.

“I feel like you’re going to be happy. I think you’re going to be very happy. And there’s some crazy stuff, like stuff you don’t see coming from anywhere.”

We can’t wait!

This Ice Cream Truck's Clapback At Influencers Is The Coldest Burn Ever

"We couldn’t care less about how many followers you have."

CVT Soft Serve in Los Angeles has taken to their social media accounts to reveal their new policy – if you ask for a free cone, you will pay double.

The ice cream company shared a photo of their co-founder Joe Nicchi holding a sign saying, “Influencers pay double.”

They captioned the snap, “We’ve decided to make this thing official with signage. We truly don’t care if you’re an Influencer, or how many followers you have.

“We will never give you a free ice cream in exchange for a post on your social media page. It’s literally a $4 item…well now it’s $8 for you. #InfluencersAreGross.”

And we totally agree with them. If you can’t afford a $4 ice cream cone, then don’t get one. Plus, CVT seems to be doing well enough on their own without having an influencer sharing a photo of their soft serve.

Another post was captioned, “We couldn’t care less about how many followers you have, and we’re super embarrassed for you when you tell us.”

Speaking with Newsweek, Nicchi said he was getting sick of people trying to get free ice cream so thought he’d make the policy official.

“LA is full of so-called ‘influencers’ with large followings that are actually fake because they most likely paid for likes and follows. Anyone can have a following if they want to pay for it. Google ‘social media bots.’

“The 2019 version of ‘Do you know who I am?’ is ‘I’m an influencer,’ but without the talent.”

The only time CVT Soft Serve has ever given away free ice cream was when the truck went viral in 2014 after offering free soft serve to Bill Murray as part of a special event. Murray accepted with Nicchi sharing this photo of him meeting his “idol”.

He added, “We cater for some pretty big A-list talent in Hollywood, and I have no interest in giving them free product. I have a family and plenty of bills to pay! My kids’ school doesn’t take celebrity photos as a form of tuition payment.”

Fans of CVT shared their support for the post, one wrote, “I hope this becomes a trend!” Another added, “Joe Nicchi for President, 2020!”

Someone else even joked they’d be willing to send Nicchi $4 in support, “I can’t buy ice cream from you because I’m in Philadelphia, but can I Venmo you $4 as a show of solidarity? #ifullysupportthis.”

The ice cream truck isn’t the only company to ban influencers. The White Moose Cafe, a hotel in Dublin, banned all social media influencers after YouTuber Elle Darby shared a video on her channel about being refused a free five-night stay at the hotel.

We said it once, we’ll say it again – if you can’t afford it, you can’t expect to receive it for free simply because of how many followers you have. Especially if it seems pretty obvious they’re bought followers.

BUT, a lesson to learn from all of this, is that if you’re Bill Murray you might just be an exception to the rules.
