LAS VEGAS - Watch corpses thrown into a meat grinder allegedly to be used at a buffet and a showgirl lose her head.

See victims' skins turned into pillows and visit restrooms with crimson fluid dripping down mirrors.

That's all part of the experience at "Eli Roth's GORETORIUM," a Vegas attraction that's due to open to the public across from CityCenter and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Sept. 27.

Roth is the producer/director of scary movies including Hostel, and the GORETORIUM is billed as the first year-round fright attraction on the Strip.

"We wanted to create this for horror fans," says GORETORIUM CEO Robert H. Frey, giving a tour at the partially complete attraction. "There will be a whole lot of screaming going on."

The GORETORIUM is designed as a fictional '60s hotel called The Delmont, where guests check in but never leave.

Visitors walk through the lobby, a casino with vintage slot machines and the staff quarters and ride a haunted elevator, passing all sorts of grisly sights and watching dozens of actors whose task is to scare the living daylights out of customers. There will be torture chambers, models of human heads on rotisseries and a gory electric chair.

One of the cast members can put a finger up through his nose and out of an eye socket that usually holds his glass eye, Frey says.

Luckily, the GORETORIUM is equipped with so-called "chicken hallways" that let frightened visitors leave.

It also will have hundreds of speakers spewing spooky sound effects, a lounge with "zombie dancers" and a wedding chapel in which couples can dress up in fright-night style to tie the knot.

Cost to tour the attraction is $40 at the door, $35 for tickets bought online, Frey says.
