Actor, director, producer, writer, curator, close personal friend of Quentin Tarantino — Eli Roth wears many hats. Now comes word that the noted horror filmmaker has once again returned from the haberdasher. A personal note to Mr. Roth: Dude, nobody needs that many hats.
Deadline is reporting that Roth has announced plans for Eli Roth's Goretorium, a state-of-the-art multi-level haunted house located on the Vegas strip, right next door to that other famous horrorshow, Planet Hollywood.
The budding haunt industry entrepreneur wants the Goretorium, which will be open 24/7 x 365, to become "the world mecca for horror fans."
"Horror fans know that with my name on it," Roth said, "it won't be for little kids. They know it will be a very scary experience."
It could be pretty cool to have a year-round, over-the-top horror attraction in Vegas, I suppose. And you have to admit, decapitated showgirls sound right in Roth's wheelhouse. As long as his Goretorium is scarier than Hostel: Part II, he may well have something here. Best of luck, Eli, from your friends at Planet Fury.
