And that's to say nothing of spring, with its sunshine and flowers and bunnies. I mean, pastels? THE HORROR!
But despair not, gentle creeps. Here are three off-season spooky events taking place this spring in Los Angeles:
Surely you remember my recent review of Delusion: The Blue Blade. Again, this is not a haunt, and it's not exactly horror, but there are some creepy moments, and some killer set pieces, and I firmly believe that if you're the kind of person who spends March wishing it could be October, you'll enjoy yourself.
Tickets available now through March 17, 2019.
Another immersive theater experience making a triumphant return this spring is The Willows - you can read my thoughts about the 2017 production here.
Tickets are on sale now for showtimes through the end of March, with more tickets to be released for later shows.
Finally, Reign of Terror in Thousand Oaks is putting on a special one-night only event on Saturday, March 9, 2019 from 7-11 PM, but unlike the aforementioned productions, this is a proper haunted house. From the RoT social media:
ALL your FAVORITE features, and creatures, await your Springtime visit to Reign of Terror Haunted House's SPECIAL EVENT on March 9, 2019! Including the expanded underground 'slime bog' inside Miner's Revenge, the outcasts inhabiting the 'Inbred' attraction, the 'White-Out Experience' inside our Fun House, plus all the outlandish occupants, sights, sounds and scents that make ROT the most fiendishly fun you can have in a Haunt!Tickets are available now on their website, with proceeds benefiting various animal rescue groups. If you've never been to Reign of Terror, it really must be seen to be believed, and what better time to go than right in the middle of the off-season?
