ABOUT DAN YEAGER
Dan Yeager spent his early years as a star athlete in Columbia Station, Ohio. The son of a drywall man and a resourceful mother who made ends meet through a variety of odd jobs, and was one of five children. In his teen years, the family moved to Las Vegas, where Dan found the opportunity to pursue his lifelong acting ambitions. He participated in several community theater productions, before moving on to regional commercials, and finally, feature films. As he was getting his feet wet in the acting profession, Dan met and befriended actor Robert Quarry, revered by horror fans for his multiple portrayals of “Count Yorga” the vampire. Mr. Quarry was impressed with Dan’s 6’6,” athletic stature and the menacing look in the young man’s eyes. He told Dan, “Go to Hollywood. You’ll make a great living playing monsters!” Dan took the legend’s advice and later moved to Los Angeles.
Recently, Mr. Yeager caught the eye of several top Hollywood film producers who seriously considered him for a major role in the horror cult series “Texas Chainsaw.” He joined the cast, reprising the role of Leatherface in the latest installment “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” out in theaters January 4, 2013.
ABOUT ELI ROTH’S GORETORIUM
The multi-level maze of frights is the brainchild of director/actor Eli 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. Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM 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 the Las Vegas Strip, the bar will entertain guests with caged zombie dancers and live “feedings.” GORETORIUM also features a one-of-a-kind horror retail shop and a to-go bar called “Bloody Mary’s,” specializing in gruesomely themed cocktails.
