Love and blood are in the air as local haunted house Rigor Mortis holds a two-night Valentine’s Day event where couples can bond while running from an evil Cupid and single individuals can rejoice in a fun activity not involving the typical scenes of love, chocolates and roses.
Rigor Mortis Haunted Attraction’s Valentine’s event is Friday, Feb. 14 and Saturday, Feb. 15 from 6 to 10:30 p.m. Horror lovers will experience a darker side of the well-known winged infant who shoots arrows of love. Cupid exposes his villainy while helping patrons find their bloody valentine and navigate the haunts throughout the building.
“The characters, including Cupid himself, and themes will be centered around Valentine’s Day,” says Jordan Winton, creative director of Rigor Mortis. “This is perfect for thrill-seekers and will definitely make for a memorable date night.”
The story follows the survival of the tragic massacre Cupid inflicted on the McMinnville Mortuary and Fallout Shelter. The darkest aspects of love will be discovered while walking through the 40 “scare” feet of horror and gore filled with thrills, special effects and 30 to 40 terrifying live actors.
“The theme is Cupid’s Revenge,” says Winton. “People can expect a bloodier experience. It’s perfect for those who like gore.”
New to this event will be a Merlin-award winning illusionist Terry Evanswood, who designed an illusion specifically for the Valentine’s Day show to trick the minds of and entertain visitors.
Rigor Mortis is located at 1030 Smithville Highway at Plaza Shopping Center. Tickets can be purchased at the box office or by visiting rigormortishauntedhouse.com. For more information, call 931-952-2688.
