Documentary exposes ‘truth’ behind terrifying horror house where guests ‘have pulled their own teeth out’

Monster Inside claims to lift the lid on the infamous McKamey Manor horror attraction

A new documentary promises to expose the 'truth' behind an infamous horror house, where people have pulled their own teeth out.

Monster Inside tells the story of McKamey Manor. Check out the trailer:

No doubt, you've probably heard of the terrifying scare tour over the years.

Run by Russ McKamey, the attraction promises participants a psychological tour de force, with people having to sign a hefty waiver before they start.

To date, no one has ever made it through the full tour, whether that's the original incarnation back in San Diego, or in Summertown, Tennessee, and Huntsville, Alabama.

But while Russ promises there's nothing deeply sinister about what he does, a handful of former participants have now claimed things went further than prising some gnashers out.

The synopsis for Monster Inside, which landed on Hulu recently, says: "What would it be like to be trapped in a real-life horror movie? Monster Inside follows the story of Russ McKamey.

"The Navy Veteran who lures horror enthusiasts into his web. They find themselves pulled into the no-holds-barred world of McKamey Manor - a haunt that doesn’t end until Russ says so.

"Originally starting McKamey Manor to satiate his love of Halloween, as the haunt grew in popularity, both on the ground and on social media, so did the severity of Russ’ scare tactics - realising that he was attracting more and more followers as he did so.

"By cultivating an online persona and a cult-like following, Russ was allowed to display his basest instincts and rewarded with online fame and notoriety.

"Driven by his personal fixations, he turned his backyard haunt into a bona fide torture chamber: videotaping ‘contestants,’ particularly vulnerable young women, as he sees how far he can push them - both inside and outside of the haunt.

"Through the stories of our main characters, and expert commentary, the film hopes to show how a person’s past could draw them into extreme activity, some forms of which might actually be beneficial, and thus more broadly answer the question: why do we do anything extreme?"

Three former participants have come forward with stories about the Manor.

In the doc, which follows three former participants, one says: "I had no idea what I was getting myself into."

While another also claims: "I'm here because I want everyone to know the truth about Russ."

However, Russ has since come out and denied any wrongdoing.

Speaking to the Sun, he said he had nothing to hide and slammed Hulu for using his own footage, which he says is nothing new.

"It's just one-sided hate propaganda from people that actually know better but are looking for their 15 minutes of fame," Russ said. "They truly are obsessed with me.

"It's very misleading. I hope people realise this. It's not even about McKamey Manor, it's all about me, trying to make me look bad. That was their agenda."
