Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Kinky Fifty Shades of Grey die-hards will have to remove all vibrators, whips, and other potentially violent sex gear from their bag of movie-going essentials. In a statement to Mashable, AMC's Ryan Noonan explains:

While we welcome those guests who want to show their excitement for a film by dressing up in costume, we do not permit weapons (real or fake), or props/costumes that would make guests uncomfortable, or detract from the moviegoing experience.

Arriving propped out for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, wand and all? Fine. When the film in question includes something called "The Red Room of Pain?" Nope.
