An Amsterdam nightclub has announced that it will be hosting a rave where participants get showered with blood, like in the opening scene of Blade (1998), an action horror movie about modern-day vampires. The Halloween gathering has already attracted 4,100 prospective attendees and hasn’t announced just yet if the blood will be real or synthetic. Tickets are currently being listed at €24.50 ($27.37).
The club owners noted that they even tested and installed a special sprinkler system which can accomplish their goal of showering the entire dance floor with blood, jokingly saying, “[W]e want to see how far we can go.” With the fourth blood moon – the final one in the current tetrad – approaching on September 28, and the war on Christianity in full effect, this boundary may be one they would be wise not to trifle with.
Blood is not a cleaning accessory; it is the essence of life and should be treasured and valued as such. It also symbolizes for Christians the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for the world’s salvation, which is duteously noted in the scripture. Matthew 26:28: “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”
