Eli Roth‘s $10 million haunted house attraction is closing its doors this week, just a year after it first opened up shop on the Vegas strip. The timing has to be particularly painful, but Hostel director and horror maven Roth — whose Green Inferno was just acquired by Open Road out of Toronto — said eking out one last Halloween run wasn’t an option as he confirmed the closure today on his blog: “I wish we could stay open through Halloween – we all do – but these are decisions beyond our control. … Ultimately, however, for a variety of reasons, the business was not sustainable as a year-round event.” The Goretorium announced the biz’s shutdown on Facebook before Roth confirmed that tomorrow will be its last night of operations. The Goretorium filed for Chapter 11 in July but remained open during the reorganization process.
