And that’s good. It’s perfectly normal and healthy and how it should be.
But, come on. Just this once...
Step carefully into Killers: A Nightmare Haunted House, a legitimately f***ed-up and fascinating labyrinth through the history of serial killers, officially kicking off Halloween season tonight.
Technically, yes, this is a haunted house. But one based on actual human beings and your admittedly macabre fascination with how they ticked. A haunted house of the mind... and unholy amounts of only-probably fake blood and guts.
When you arrive, you’ll be marked with an X on your forehead if you’re okay with being touched during the tour. And know: you will be touched. Start off with a drink in the lobby. Seriously, do this. There’s a full bar when you first arrive.
Now look around. Why yes, this is a converted school. And, oh, look, it’s a painting by John Wayne Gacy. And... hey, there’s Ted Bundy’s actual execution letter. The whole place is covered in actual serial killer artifacts.
Try to shake that off for a minute, then bottoms up and head in for the tour. We won’t spoil any surprises...
But don’t expect to want to take a bath anytime soon.
