The first I was looking at a old magazine from the 1970s and there was an article about scientsist that mutilated a man to make him a robot. The man was Daniel Craig (how he looks like now) and the pictures were horrifying. They showed the scientists mutilating him, him screaming in pain and them being all proud of themselves and laughing about it.
The last I was kidnapped by a group of elves or midgets. Their way to torture people was to tie them to a wheel with cakes, pies, cookies and other sweets stuck to their faces and when the wheel had taken a full turn the sweets would crush all over the face and they would laugh. I was able to get away from them.
