    This Haunted House Makes You Sign A 40-Page Waiver Before Entering, And I'm Calling The FBI Right Now

    Honestly, I'm not making it past the waiver, love.

    I love Halloween and horror as much as the next person, but it seems like some people have taken fright night to the highest level of WTF extremeness.

    When Twitter user @mellbelleex said that there is a haunted house that literally makes you sign a WAIVER to enter but will give you $20,000 if you complete it, I had to see what they were talking about!

    The “haunted house” that makes you sign a waiver and claims to give you $20K if you can complete it, this is just a part of the waiver they make you sign - continued

    My obsessive research led me to discover that she's discussing the McKamey Manor experience in Tennessee. According to Knox News, owner Russ McKamey offers $20,000 to anyone who completes the tour, but he says no one ever has.

    First of all, this is the location of the place. Immediately I'm thinking Children of the Corn, and it's a no from me, dawg.

    So I was like, okay, I GUESS a good haunted house needs to be in a spacious environment. THEN I learned that you have to sign a 40-page waiver, create a safe word, AND get a full physical.

    Y'all, the waiver told these people they may come in contact with carbon monoxide poisoning. Get me TF outta here.

    Oh, did I mention you consent to being crushed by rocks and zapped by dog collars, AND that you don't get to quit once you enter unless "serious physical or psychological injury is present"?

    If that's the case, then why do we have a safe word?!

    The waiver also includes sections where participants can have teeth extracted without novocaine and be subjected to water torture.

    And if you think that doing something like throwing up will make them let you go, think again.

    Other people on Twitter shared their horror encounters with the McKamey Manor, and some of these responses sound like they're straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie:

    @mellbelleex I also found out about this today and watched a video of a woman who did it.... She's traumatized for life They chopped off her hair and forced her to eat it, they tried to drown her anf stuff... The owner should be in jail

    Apparently there's also a Netflix documentary about this place. Nope, I'm fine! Sprinkle it in holy water and put it in rice.

    @mellbelleex There’s a documentary on Netflix where they show clips from inside and interview people who’ve been through it and finally the guy who created it- he comes across as a complete sociopath. If you haven’t seen it, it’s called Haunters: The Art of The Scare

    The rest of us just want any of this to make sense:

    @mellbelleex Lol this is the smartest psychopath I’ve ever read about. He gets to torture people for his own enjoyment but he can’t get into trouble because they signed a waiver 😂 I laugh because I’m so fkn disturbed and confused as to how this is “legal”. https://t.co/yLxXzXbJwb

    And why there's actually a wait list to get inside:

    @mellbelleex their are people out there who are on a waitlist .... to get tortured .... please make it make sense.

    Soooooo, who's about to try to win the $20,000? I'll be over in the corner minding my business and resting comfortably knowing nobody is torturing me.
