The Manor has been completely redesigned and updated for 2011. Spanning 2 floors, this attraction is set in the original plantation house of American Serial Killer Jeremiah Lexer and his family. Many of the artifacts and items seen within the Manor are original. The burnt out fireplaces, playful writings on the wall from his grandchildren, and even ax-blade marked walls, remain as they were left in 1902. You will descend the very staircase Lexer walked up before committing suicide after his final rampage of murders. This is not a fake Haunted Attraction. You are stepping back in time and seeing inside the home and mind of one of America’s earliest known serial killers – Be mindful of your surroundings and don’t let go of your friends because NO ONE can hear you scream once inside Frightmare Manor - True Terror Exists Here.
Frightmare Carnivore is based around the outback barn structures where Jeremiah Lexer’s experimentations and mutilations of his victims took place. The archaeological evidence as well as Hamblen County records suggest that Lexer performed biohazardous trials to see his victim’s true fear. He mercilessly mutated animals and humans for sport and in the name of “science”. Carnivore marks the very site where Jeremiah Lexer carried out these torturous and inhumane experimentations on his animal and human victims alike. Lexer’s experimental serums and biological compounds used on his victims transformed these poor souls into savage, bloodthirsty beasts. Most of his victims ultimately succumbed to death during these trials, the lucky ones. Unfortunately many lived, creating monstrous creatures and animalistic, zombie-like humans. Although most of the original barns were razed in 1904, small remnants remain. In 2011, these structures were reconstructed based off photos and eyewitness accounts returning the area to its 1902 state. As recorded in the Mossy Creek Chronicle published November, 1902, over 225 animal carcasses and countless human limbs were found within these barns. Ultimately, there were no survivors. There are worse things than death…Frightmare Carnivore.
The Frightmare Backwoods was the dumping grounds for most of Lexer’s unfortunate victims. Many wonder how he was able to elude detection and still successfully dispose of his victims for so long? This terrifying trek into the gulley of the Backwoods will allow you to see where the mass graves and countless pieces of evidence were discovered. At least 31 human corpses were unearthed in total. The fears extracted from all his victims before their death are said to be looming within this wooded area. Be mindful of your thoughts as your very fears may exist within this deadly realm also. The entrance to the Backwoods is guarded today by the original cabin which sat on the property over 100 years ago. Accounts from the time period say that Jeremiah killed his first victim, his wife, within this servant’s cabin on that fateful night in 1902. Some believe the spirits of the dead still roam today within…The Frightmare Backwoods.
