If you are someone who enjoys Halloween and all that comes along with it, then you probably love haunted houses.
This haunted house in Summertown, Tennessee might just be the scariest in the world. It's called McKamey Manor.
First off, it uses hypnotism to enhance the experience. That means they will mess with what people perceive to be real. Russ McKamey the owner built it in the backyard of his actual house and says the key to inspiring terror is a "mind game" that relies on hypnotism to have visitors tricked by their own minds. He said each experience is video recorded to prove to visitors -- and authorities -- that nothing illegal took place.
"When I use the hypnosis I can put you in a kitty pool with a couple inches of water and tell you there's a great white shark in there, and you're gonna think there's a shark in there,
If you're interested in trying, you need to sign a 40-page waiver, complete a physical, pass a drug test, prove you have medical insurance, and pass a background check. You also have to watch a two-hour video montage of people quitting.
The good news is that if you make it through, you get a $20,000 prize. However, nobody has ever collected the money. Thousands of people have tried but everyone has quit before making it all the way through. They have to say "I really don't want to do this," in order for the experience to end.
The cost of admission to this haunted experience is simply a bag of dog food that gets donated.
