Written and directed by Wim Vanacker
Welcome to this week’s episode of The Dating Game, the show that alters lives. Meet Henry, flâneur by day, serial killer by night. He’s here to educate us in the art of amour and to confront us with society’s rotten and superficial ways.
Welcome if you will.
Sensational Henry who’ll take us through his own perverted fantasies and ritualistic acts. Feel free to join his personal quest to find structure and salvation in this consumerist maze of seduction and destruction with me, the Host, as his guide and schizophrenic counterpart.
