About Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM
The multi-level maze of frights immerses visitors into the tale of Sin City’s most deadly mythical hotel and casino, The Delmont.  The self-guided horror experience begins in the lobby of the Delmont and unveils gruesome and ghastly 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.


Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM also includes a freaky, 60’s inspired lounge called “Baby Dolls.”  Featuring a magnificent view of CityCenter, the bar will entertain with caged zombie dancers and live “feedings.”  GORETORIUM also features a one-of-a-kind horror retail shop with a to-go bar called “Bloody Mary’s,” specializing in gruesomely themed cocktails.

Fright Nights Returns For A Second Year At The Winchester Mystery House


Fright Nights at Winchester Mystery House was hands down my favorite Haunt Attraction from 2011. It had everything I wanted in maze and more. I was amazed from all the work they put on for their first year. To the sets, the scares, the music, etc. I was completely in love with this Haunt. Fright Nights returns to the Winchester Mystery House for a second year with the "Curse Of Sarah Winchester Resurrection" maze and an all new flashlight tour. They just released an official trailer on September 5 for this year's event, watch if you dare...




"For a lifetime, Sarah Winchester built and built and rebuilt her house to avoid this treacherous curse and escape her husband’s legacy of damnation. But this Halloween, a portal, a gateway between Heaven and Hell, has been irretrievably opened. Those who perished long ago are seeking revenge, now ready to sacrifice souls before midnight strikes. 


Guests find themselves trapped inside a mansion empowered by the undead, traveling through the Corn Fields of Winchester Mystery House, into the haunted ruins of the family Graveyard and ultimately, a showdown with Sarah herself in the middle of one of her infamous séances.

Survive it all, LIVE, only at Winchester Mystery House."


The maze length will 40 minutes of heart pounding terror! I'm excited to see what new additions they bring to the table as well as new unexpected scares! Check out my review from last year! http://frightbites.blogspot.com/2011/10/fright-nights-at-winchester-mystery.html


On Fright Nights official twitter page they had announced all new Flashlight Tour for this year's event. The Flashlight Tour was a great addition to add along side of the maze last year. Hearing the chilling supernatural stories while venturing through this mysterious house was a great addition to the Halloween season. Check out the description below for information on this all new tour.


"Tour the mansion as you never have before…on your own. Since her death, millions of people have visited Sarah’s home and many have reported sighting ghosts. Do the phantoms she communed with in life, or perhaps Sarah herself, still lurk nightly in the maze-like corridors of the Winchester Mystery House? You'll tour the rambling, mysterious mansion with only the moonlight, a souvenir flashlight, and your imagination to provide illumination through the bewildering labyrinth of rooms and stairways.


Guests experience bone-chilling creatures and blood-curdling moments as they find themselves trapped inside the mansion empowered by the undead."


"On your own" This creeps me out and excites me at the same time. I wonder how different it will be, only one way to find out!


Heres a photo of the special Fright Nights Flashlight that was given out on the Flashlight Tours along with Fright Nights lanyard I purchased at the Winchester Mystery House giftshop last year. I love the pins!




This year one of Fright Nights sponsors, Psycho Donuts will create a Fright Nights donut for this year's event. In August, Psycho Donuts asked If you were a Fright Nights Donut what would you be on their Facebook page. Responses included spiderwebs designs, the number 13, to donuts shaped like winchester rifles. Can't wait to see what donut made the cut!

San Jose's Annual Zombie-O-Rama IV Overview



 The zombies are coming...


On August 31st the undead invaded downtown San Jose in California for the fourth annual event called Zombie-O-Rama. This was my first year going to a Zombie event and it did not disappoint. It was definitely smaller than I expected but it was alot of fun. This event included several booths of different horror attractions, vendors, food trucks, live music, zombie fashion shows, costume contests, zombie crawls, and an outside showing of the classic film "Shaun of the Dead".




This is also family friendly event. Kids that dress up as zombies and can even take part in a zombie kid parade. Who knew zombie kids could be cute?



California's Great America Halloween Haunt hearse was in on the action too with their prize wheel. This prize wheel gave lucky zombies a chance to win Haunt tickets and very cool posters. I was lucky enough to win a poster. To add there was even Halloween Haunt zombies and ghouls scaring and entertaining guests during the event, it was a very nice touch.



Additionally here is a picture of the Halloween Haunt poster I won from the prize wheel. They were also handing out Resident Evil Retribution posters at the event. Very fitting!



Local food eateries got in the zombie spirit too! For example my favorite donut place of all time, Psycho Donuts! Psycho Donuts always puts a smile on my face with the creativity that goes into their donuts. For Zombie-O-Rama they had their special zombie inspired donuts to fuel up fellow zombies. The two zombie donuts were Zombie Crawler and Zombie Ballz. Zombie Crawler was a undead honey wheat glazed cake donut with oreo dust on top. As for the Zombie Ballz they were described as "These Ballz have risen from the dead! Covered with green tea glaze, oreo dust, and that yummy zombie blood" I tried both zombie donuts and they were delicious!

Also at the event was this cute hot dog stand called Dead Dogs. Their set up was awesome, I give them props! Look at this awesomeness here!

Overall, this was a fun filled zombie event. I really enjoyed seeing the creative zombie costumes. Like zombie unicorns and even zombie clowns with chainsaws. It made me wish I dressed up for the event. Next time it shall be done! I did not get a chance to witness the zombie crawl but I'm sure it was a site to see!
