Material Lifting: Eli Roth’s Goretorium

Las Vegas, NV

Contractor: Gist Décor working under Forte Construction

Project Scope

Eli Roth’s Goretorium is a haunted chapel on the Las Vegas strip. After couples pronounce their marriage vows, a decorative wall of zombies rises in the background. The contractor required a permanent material hoist to repeatedly lift and lower the 8 ft (2.4 m) x 10 ft (3.1 m), 750 lb (340.2 kg) wall as part of the theatre’s production.


The customer required a discrete, custom mounting solution that blended into the set. 


Spider sold one Beta Max Leo 220V material hoist and developed the custom mounting solution – a squeeze clamp constructed of steel angle iron and painted black to blend in with the set.
