Eli Roth to open Goretorium attraction

Eli Roth is one of Hollywood's more prolific horror producers and directors with hits like Cabin Fever and Hostel, plus he does a little acting too (Inglorious Bastards). So imagine how delighted we were when we discovered  a new attraction would be opening up in Las Vegas where you could actually experience Roth's deliciously disturbed mind, first hand.

It is called, appropriately enough, Goretorium and from the tidbits the website offers, well, disturbing is an understatement. It opens on Sept. 27  and it is not just open for the Halloween season, but is a 365-days a year treat situated across from CityCenter and the Cosmopolitan.

The brand new attraction is based on the mythical Delmont Hotel where, 50 years ago, a family of cannibalistic owners would drug their guests, filet them while they were still alive, and feed them to their other guests. Yummy! Patrons self-guide through the Delmont, starting in the lobby, and get to witness the horrors that this serial-killing family bestowed upon their victims.

Says the site, "employing high-tech Vegas showmanship with old-fashioned scares, the terrifying labyrinth of live actors, animatronic frights, and stunning special effects is contained in a vintage hotel setting that rivals the best movie sets."

If you can't head to Vegas to experience this living nightmare, the site allows you to "Launch the webcam to watch our guests s#!+ their pants and see what you're missing." Sounds fun! There are also videos and pictures to draw you into the madness. (Check out this pretty grotesque clip not for the easily grossed-out).

Tickets are $35 if purchased online or $40 at the door. There is also a "Death Row VIP Fast Pass" for $60 in case you want to skip the line and jump-start your terrifying experience!

If you happen to check out this latest installment of Eli Roth's glorious insanity, please let us know - we're dying to hear about it!
