The man who brought the tourism horror of Hostel to the big screen is bringing a whole new type of fright to Sin City. Eli Roth’s Goretorium haunted house is scheduled to open on September 27 in Las Vegas, right in time for Halloween. “Horror fans know that with my name on it,” Roth told Deadline, “it won’t be for little kids. They know it will be a very scary experience.” Aiming to tap into the $7 billion a year Halloween industry, the 24/7 all year round mult-leveled Goretorium, situated at the corner of Strip and Harmon in Vegas, aspires to become “the world mecca for horror fans,” says Roth. Last year, Roth’s Hostel maze was the one of the most highly attended attractions at Universal Horror Nights. Roth, who’s heading off to Pennsylvania next week to start shooting his Netflix mystery series Hemlock Grove, says he’s already had pre-opening offers to franchise the Goretorium in London, Tokyo and New York, as well as elsewhere in America.
