His pet project will feature gory tableaux, buckets of guts and demented actors styled as “hot zombie chicks” tasked to the scare the wits out of visitors, who've shelled out £20 for a “ticket to hell.”. The Goretorium has opened in the grounds of the former haunted Delmont Hotel on the Strip in Las Vegas just in time for Hallowe'en.
The finale of a visitor's lone journey around the hotel involves being trapped in the building's basement and facing a nightmarish surprise. Roth's £6m attraction features a human meat grinder, a bar decorated with the spooky severed heads of dolls, and a haunted wedding chapel that can be hired for weddings with a vampire minister – a chauffeur-driven hearse will even pick you up and you can rent a zombie wedding gown.
Roth has said he also wants to use his new plaything as a venue to premier his forthcoming TV thriller Hemlock Grove and also his cannibal epic The Green Inferno.
Roth said: “The Goretorium will be a horror destination for both horror fans and tourists from around the world, 365 days a year. We are creating the most intense live terror experience a person can have, incorporating the latest technology with old-fashioned scares...”
