First seen at the Scare LA horror convention in Pasadena this past summer, Serial Killer Speed Dating is back in Los Angeles just in time for you to find your Valentine. The fun Valentines Day edition will be held on February 10th, 2016 at BarFoodLA on Wilshire, complete with food, drinks, romance and murder! The event is actual speed dating, in which prospective daters will have five minutes to sit across from each other and try to make the perfect first impression. However, hidden among the daters will be a few “serial killers” just “dying” to meet them. It is up to the daters to determine if they are sitting across from a potential match, or a murderer!
Throughout the evening the serial killers will try their best to tamp down their primal urges to kill, while also keeping their eyes on their favorite singles. It all builds up to a satisfying climax in which daters try to guess the serial killers in the crowd for the chance of gruesome prizes. So bring your charm and your smarts, or you might be sized up by someone who wants to use your face as a mask. “The response has been incredibly positive so far,” said Abel Horwitz, creator of Serial Killer Speed Dating, “and we wanted to throw a party for the holiday of love, or Single’s Awareness Day, however you choose to celebrate.” Horwitz and his performers (who remain secret, as they will be interacting with the daters) have noted that the mystery of a potential killer sitting across from you brings a unique edge to each date. “Part of the appeal of speed dating is that you get a face-to-face date,” continues Horwitz. “The twist that it might be a killer sitting across from you gives it just a little bit of spice and if anything,” says Horwitz, “it’s an icebreaker. Even if you don’t know what to talk about you can start with, “I’m not a serial killer!” It’s an excellent conversation starter.” And while there is no shortage of options when it comes to dating, Horwitz maintains that nothing compares to meeting a potential lover in the flesh.”We’ve made some pretty wonderful connections so far,” says Horwitz, “and we are excited to see if Cupid’s arrow pierces any hearts.” And if not, Horwitz figures, there’s always a serial killer out there who’d love to stab yours!
