Haunted House Bankruptcy Wedding
Anthony Gallegos and Rosie Grasso of Las Vegas pose for photos in a wedding reception area after getting married at Eli Roth’s Goretorium in Las Vegas. The Goretorium announced that it was closing. Part fright attraction, part nightclub and bar, the $10 million Goretorium was the brainchild of horror movie icon Roth and Las Vegas nightlife mogul Robert Frey. The attraction garnered buzz in the months preceding its opening in late September 2012 with the promise to blend Roth’s brand of gratuitous horror spectacle with the decadence of Strip nightlife, touted by Frey as a “Disneyland for horror.” Nonetheless, the concept of a year-round haunted house remained a tough sell, as complaints of long lines, a lack of parking, unhappy employees and overpriced tickets plagued its opening months.
