Mumbai, May 15: A horror show re-enacting the hanging of deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is drawing huge crowds in the city.

Hussein was hanged in December last year for his role in the killing of 148 Iraqi Shias suspected of planning to assassinate him in 1982.

The House of Horrors (HOH), which is located at the Prime Mall in Irla at Vile Parle here, is modelled on Halloween horror that is seen in the famous Madame Tussauds in England, the Disneyland in the US or Sentosa Island in Singapore.

Promoted by Satish Reddy, a journalist-turned-businessman and Tanaz Irani, a gynaecologist, the horror show was launched Saturday night.

The House of Horrors that sprawls over 1,800 sq ft could be your scariest nightmare priced at Rs200 for a 15-20 minute walk in darkness through the uneven pathway with screaming and screeching witches, the unexpected encounters with the awakened Satan and the shiver runs down your spine.

Speaking of this new venture, Reddy said: "It's a very novel and adventurous concept. It's a 30 billion dollar industry abroad and still remains untapped and dormant in India. Horror has always been an ingredient for films and television but this will give people a living experience."

He said that it took them four months to set up the venture, though it is not as big as the ones found abroad due to space constraints in Mumbai. The horror element is also balanced as it caters to visitors of 12-60 years age group.
