The McKamey Manor Dare
Just when I thought I’ve seen and heard it all. This torture manor, as I call it, has been around a while. Going back to 2013 or more. So there are many complaints from people claiming they were not let out after using the safe word. I’ve heard of signing waivers but not paperwork from one's doctor and psychiatrist stipulating they can handle the hands-on interaction. Oh yes, you have to provide a letter from your primary doctor saying you passed the physical. Plus one from a psychiatrist stipulating you’re mentally well enough to handle this level of being traumatized--for lack of better words. That has to be an awkward conversation with these doctors. They have to wonder......you know they do. They claim they call to verify the letters are authentic from both doctors. He talks with people a long time (usually on Skype) before this event happens. That’s how extreme this is. It simulates a lot of popular sinister horror movie scenes. I can’t imagine, and don’t want to. I don’t want to open any doors. That’s just me.
All the fear and torment at a place like this would have to attract the demonic. It’s a perfect storm. I can’t imagine it would be a ‘pleasant scary experience’. I use to LOVE haunted houses as a teenager around Halloween. The thrill of being scared. My father hated it. Lol. He hated that I loved those. He was a Pentecostal Minister so you can imagine. But he didn’t stop me. I was never forced to do anything like go to church and things to that nature. He didn’t shove it down my throat. So I never thought twice about going. I’m getting off the subject here. Forgive me. Also a note that possible water boarding will be done in this haunted house. I hear it’s not even a manor. Just a regular everyday home. I’m not sure how that title got slipped in?
The Bible speaks about things that fall into this category. This again.....is just my humble opinion and observation from a biblical point of view. I understand completely that not everyone will agree and that is just fine. I put out information that I think some might want to know. I want to make this very clear. I received an email about this so I wanted to get it out there. These blogs are for everyone. I’m not attacking anybody. I’m concerned. Satan is a slick snake in the grass and his time is near. He knows it too. So let’s descend into morbid, diabolical anarchy! Oh he’d love that. Well the power of Jesus supersedes Satan. On every level. The devil will always up the level. That’s my point to this blog really.
Look at all these horror movies coming out and all the ones that are on Netflix. That is just so scary to me. So many people watch Netflix including me. God only knows what that kind of viewing does to a person on some of these movies.
They are already advertising demonic movies for 2020. This is how the enemy works. He is so very slick. He works on his time. He’d love it if the entire world didn’t believe in him. Oh he could run amok. He could possess anyone and they wouldn’t know it at first. And he never would have to worry about someone resisting.
Jesus loves you. He does not want you tormented by these dark beings. That’s not His plan for us but sometimes free will gets in the way. These dark things hate human beings. They hate our guts. Remember this when you feel you can’t go on. Reach for Jesus Christ when sadness hits. Especially this time of year. Don’t give the enemy any room. He will try but remember the truth, Jesus is King. Satan cannot overtake him. The book of Revelations is worth reading about end times.
When I researched this subject and how this all year around haunted attraction worked I was literally sickened. It is currently not in business but I’m not sure why? It was first in San Diego, California, but it's now in Summertown, Tennessee. I pray for the owner and anyone else influenced by it and anyone hurt by it. It’s just not right. That’s my humble opinion. When haunt participants asked to be let out aren't, the tormenting goes on. If that’s true. I don’t know for sure. But think twice before doing these extreme haunted houses that are year round or just in October. Someone had a heart attack, which the owner of McKamey Manor said “It was pretty cool”. He said it on a YouTube clip. He’s fueled by attention and loves it. Please pray he adjust things so everyone can be happy. No one getting hurt or coming out mortified.
Below is a comment I found from usatoday.com:
"You get a lot of people who think it's going to be easy money," Kris Smith, a 37-year-old Michigan native who works as a volunteer remotely for McKamey's tours, told USA TODAY. Smith was first introduced to the operation years ago as a contestant. During his first go-around, he didn't make it past signing the waiver, which details all the physically painful, high-stakes and grotesque things that could happen along the way.
"I read it and I quit," Smith said. "I got to the last page and turned around and went home.... There's so much. You have to pull out your own teeth, there's a chance of getting a tattoo, a chance of your fingernails getting pulled out. It's really overwhelming. There's a chance of death. Accidents do happen."
The Washingtonpost.com: I found this random comment to a article about this haunted event.
“Except YOU lose if you touch them, though they CAN touch you. Most of this is set up to make you fail. You basically aren't allowed to defend yourself. Plus you start with a small set of "cards" that you need to be in the positive to "win", he arbitrarily assigns the amount of cards you can lose to said "challenge" so technically, if he thinks you may win, he just sets the amount of card loss to higher than you have and make some ridiculous challenge. You can start with more cards if you hang out in their city for 2 weeks before the game and do a bunch of sightseeing crap. I wouldn't trust him to play fair even if you did every degrading thing asked of you.”
Lord, I shouldn’t be surprised...Feel free to do your own research. Different opinions on this that’s for sure.
Until next time may your pleasures be many and your worries be few.
