It's not often Valentine's Day and Friday the 13th are so close together, but one local attraction has already planned on blending the two together for local couples who love a little more scream than sweet.
Love and FEAR fills the air this Valentine's weekend at the Slaughterhouse Haunted Attraction in Hermitage. Slaughterhouse,presented by Full Moon, is opening its doors Friday, Feb. 13, and Saturday, Feb. 14, for a special two-night engagement.
Ben and Stacey Dixon, owners of Lone Wolf Body Art, Bloody Moon Films and the Full Moon Tattoo & Horror Festival, are coming off a successful first season at the helm of Slaughterhouse. The Dixons acquired Nashville's longest-running haunted house in 2014 and moved the attraction to its new home in Hermitage.
The Dixons are no strangers to the entertainment business, with more than 18 years of experience producing horror films and hosting one of the largest tattoo and horror conventions in the southeast,The Full Moon Tattoo & Horror Festival May 8-10.
In addition, the couple is celebrating the 21st anniversary of Lone Wolf Body Art, with three tattoo shops located in Middle Tennessee, including one in Lebanon.
If you're looking to trade in the chocolates and flowers for some spine tingling entertainment, Slaughterhouse is the place. Thrill-seekers will encounter live actors, Hollywood sets, larger-than-life animatronics and special effects at the venue on Lebanon Road in Hermitage.
