AN APPROPRIATELY GORY TRAILER FOR ELI ROTH’S GORETORIUM

 

Director Eli Roth gives fans a first-look into Sin City’s most terrifying horror experience, Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM, with a gruesome video trailer debut on Friday, August 10. The 30-second video gives a glimpse of what guests will be exposed to should they dare to take a tour through Las Vegas first year-round haunt, opening this September.

Get a brief glimpse into Roth’s twisted plans for the world’s first GORETORIUM where his unfiltered approach to horror will be brought from the screen to reality when the mythical Hotel Delmont comes to terrifying life on the Las Vegas Strip.

The self-guided horror experience begins in the lobby of the eerie hotel and unveils gruesome sights of past hotel guest victims, and the serial-killing family behind the deeds at every turn. Employing high-tech Vegas showmanship with old-fashioned scares, the terrifying labyrinth of live actors, animatronic frights and stunning special effects is contained in a vintage hotel setting that rivals Hollywood’s best movie sets. Fans can expect both the trailer and GORETORIUM to have all the gory, classic scares amplified with the edgy spin that has made Roth the new mastermind of horror genre.

Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM is the brainchild of Roth, best known as the creator of the “Hostel” and “Cabin Fever” franchises, and for his role in front of the camera as Donny “The Bear Jew” Donowitz in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” for which he won SAG Best Ensemble and BFCA Critic’s Choice Award for Best Acting Ensemble. His film label “Eli Roth Presents” produced the enormously successful horror hit “The Last Exorcism,” and he currently is shooting the horror series “Hemlock Grove” for Netflix.

LIONSGATE TO RELEASE ‘THE LAST EXORCISM’ (FORMERLY KNOWN AS ‘COTTON’)

I hadn’t really heard much about the Exorcist-meets-Blair Witch flick COTTON.  I happened upon this little story while browsing Shock Till You Drop:

Lionsgate has picked up the US distribution rights for the Eli Roth produced horror thriller The Last Exorcism (formally titled Cotton).

Helmed by German director Daniel Stamm, the cinema-verite style pic stars Patrick Fabian as a troubled evangelical minister who allows his final exorcism to be filmed by a documentary crew. (It’s the “found footage” formula with an exorcism.)

“It’s always great to work with our friend Eli, who has played a key role in establishing Lionsgate in the vanguard of the horror genre,” said Jason Constantine, Lionsgate’s prexy of acquisitions and co-productions. “The Last Exorcism feels as close to a real exorcism as anyone would ever want to get — audiences are going to find this movie scary as, well, hell.”

The Last Exorcism will premiere next month at SXSW in Austin, Texas. We’ll keep you posted on an official release date as soon as one is locked down.

With any luck, Eli Roth hasn’t tainted this flick by producing it.  I’d hate to see a director fail because his film wasn’t the way Lionsgate’s “good friend Eli” wanted it to turn out (i.e. shitcakes).
