Trust Goretorium to do something different for Valentine's Day. We recently puzzled over the lack of V Day theming at the year-round horror haunt. Other than the ability to get married by a vampire, or dressed as a zombie. You know, the usual stuff. But, we received word that they will be celebrating today with a couple of additions to the Goretorium experience.
Tonight will be the first night of a new, bi-monthly DJ event called Stereo Love. Held in the Baby Dolls Lounge, the bar with the million dollar view of the Vegas Strip, the twist is all the tune spinners will be female. And, out in force. For tonight's Valentine reveal, DJ Miss Joy, DJ Miyuki, DUWOPRose The Vinylist and DJ Crykit will kick off the series. You still have time to make plans. It runs from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Tickets are $5 and free for locals. And, they will announce future dates in the series soon.
Missing from our list of 61 things to do this Valentine's Day, is number 62. Valentine's Day at Goretorium. Which is odd as creator Eli Roth told us himself it would be an important re-branding touchstone for the Strip's only horror-haunt attraction. Their last seasonal re-vamp was their Christmas theme built around an Evil Santa.
But, we've received no notice of any special V-Day events. Instead, they are pushing their year-round opportunity to get married in a zombie wedding. Or twisted fantasy of your choice. A handful of former matrimonial ceremonies are available for viewing on YouTube. So, if this video gets you in the mood, packages start at $666. You can even choose between a "scary" or "vampire" minister. All sorts of add-ons can also be added on. Including a symbolic bloodletting ceremony. If you go ahead with that on the 14th, do send us pictures.
Just imagine the possibilities for your holiday photo cards. When we spoke with film director and Goretorium mastermind Eli Roth back in August, he promised the year-round haunt at Harmon Corner would conjure up seasonal updates. “Just to keep it fresh,” he said.
Keeping their word, the Santa scares arrived on schedule. From December 14th though the 28th, the thrill attraction's new killer concept revolves around Santa’s evil-twin, Sick Nick. If you've been naughty, Sick Nick will be handing out punishment. And, he has some back-up help from killer elves.

Think of it as a training exercise to help you through the impending zombie apocalypse. While the Goretorium and The Amazing Johnathan's Screamont Experiment will extend your scares long past Halloween, we have news of a very limited scare-a-thon that might be right up your alley.
Located in a, cough, alley renamed Haunted Alley, welcome to the Zombie Apocalypse. Here's the scenario: after legions of the deceased decide to go all-zombie on Las Vegas, an evacuation zone has been created by the military to get you the heck out of downtown. This militarized zone has, unfortunately, been infiltrated by, you guessed it, zombies. You'll need to be escorted in groups of fifteen down the alley to safety. It'll turn into a street battle with folks even rappelling down the walls. Intense!
Expect a fifteen minute parade of shocks. And, we have a little inside knowledge. Not everything around you is as it seems. They've uploaded a teaser video to give you a little insight:
Will you choose Heaven or Hell at Senor Frog's or Cowboys or Zombies at Gilley's? Maybe you'd rather see an American Psycho at The Mirage or be Bloody English at Hard Rock? Or, perhaps, a Fright Dome, a Goretorium or an Asylum is more your speed?
However you choose to spend Halloween in Vegas, don't set it in stone until you check out VegasChatter's Ultimate Guide to Halloween 2012. Since creating it just over a month ago, our comprehensive guide has expanded to 50 events, from adults only to family friendly and from haunted houses to costume contests.

A little bit of friendly advice before entering the Asylum. You may want to hit the bathroom first.
Creator Rich Strelak claims he's made it his mission to scare the [insert name of bodily fluid affectionately referred to as No. 1 here] out of you. We're not making that up. He actually told us that. And, the actors really do keep a tally of visitors who wet themselves. Good thing we brought that change of pants.

They can touch you.
We're not going to spoil too many secrets about The Amazing Johnathan's scary Screamont Experiment, but if you are downtown between now and Halloween, drop into the Las Vegas Club for A.J.'s very unique twist on the haunted house attraction. And, know ahead of time, at least once, they will touch you.
Taking over a former bingo area and the second floor of the already odd and creepy Las Vegas Club, the maze takes you through a plot set in a quarantined haunted hotel and your interaction with inhabitants -- human, animal and otherwise. Part of the way, a misanthropic bellman will guide you. Sometimes, you are on your own. Really on your own. It is not always obvious where to go. In a couple of instances the journey forward became completely baffling.

With the tagline "What Stays in Vegas, Slays in Vegas," The Screamont is luring thrill seekers to Fremont Street with rumors of contaminated water and biological disasters. The Screamont opened on Saturday and we'll bring you a full report
as soon as we recover later this week. Until then, haunt lovers aren't the only ones experiencing a dose of horror as noted by the Screamont on Facebook:
Quit your (Walking Dead) shuffling and run to the most fun you'll have this Halloween. Witching Season has only just dawned, but already we've discovered this year's must-see event. Fright Dome within Circus Circus' Adventuredome theme park is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
This was our first year entering the Dome, but we now wish we'd attended previous incarnations. We'll give you a rundown and offer some tips. But, this is an easy review to write. If you want a fantastic evening of thrills, scares and laughing out loud, Fright Dome is no-brainer. BrrraaaaiiiiiNNNNNSSSSSS.

Has it only been five months since we introduced the world to the Goretorium, Eli Roth's year-round haunted attraction? Back in April, a non-Halloween, gothic, gory, horror maze opening above a McDonald's and Walgreens was an unknown quantity. Would anyone care, regardless of the credentials of the creators?
Well, opening night was a bit of mob scene. The line of rabid fans snaked around the building. And, the invited guests crushed into the space. We survived the melee and we survived our walk through the Vegas-themed maze set in a creepy hotel called the Delmont. It would be unfair to review given the unusual circumstances, but blood and guts are plentiful. We'll say we were surprised by how many human participants are part of the scares. It's all people. Mostly dead and dying people, but mechanical spooks are kept to a minimum.
Guests who want to pledge their undying love to one another will be able to choose from three pre-set wedding packages, all priced at $1,000. The Til Death Do We Zombie package will, obviously, include a zombie minister, music, a witness (if needed), Goretorium bride and groom tees, appropriate makeup for the undead couple, a zombie gown for her (you'll have to give it back), a silk brains bouquet (that, too), a "special haunt surprise" during the ceremony, an 8x10 photo, and more.
If you don't like spoilers and are planning to go into the Goretorium without a clue as to what to expect besides a dreadful good time, look away. Now. Really, just click the back button and pick another story from our front page.
If you're still reading, you've been warned.
Vegas visitors will be f#@ked starting this Thursday when the Goretorium makes its Strip debut and kicks off a non-stop, year-round scarefest. But, before it does, CNN is
ruining it for us all giving us an advance heads up about the frights in store for guests. (Ok, seriously. This is your last chance to hit the previous page button.)
