A visit to the Vegas Goretorium (pictures)
Eli Roth's head
What better way to prepare for Halloween than to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the Las Vegas gore-fest that is the Goretorium? The brainchild of "Hostel" filmmaker Eli Roth, the new $10 million permanent installation across Las Vegas Blvd. from the Cosmopolitan and City Center tells the story of the Delmont hotel, where guests check in to find a hell of abduction, torture, murder, and cannibalism.
Sharp-eyed horror fans visiting the Goretorium will spot Roth's severed head tucked away in a Delmont hotel display case.

A bloody skeleton decorates the Goretorium's souvenir T-shirt table inside the haunt's gift shop. This unfortunate Delmont hotel guest was clearly boiled and carved up to be served as the day's room service.
The 15,000-square-foot horror attraction is open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. with an entry fee from $25 to $60. It will extend its hours on Halloween from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m.
In case you can't make it to Vegas, the Goretorium's Web site has a Webcam feature that lets you watch guests get scared out of their minds.
