What do Paris Hilton, Justin Bieber, Marilyn Manson and our own Zak Bagans all have in common? Apparently, a penchant for the truly horrific. All 3 have already visited horror movie director Eli Roth’s (of Hostel and Grindhouse) Goretorium – a brand-new year-round horror attraction that Paris Hilton has already declared “the scariest haunted house on Earth,” according to the Las Vegas Sun.

We’re not exactly sure that Ms. Hilton is the world’s leading authority on haunted houses, but it certainly does sound pretty gore-riffic.

The guys are back tonight at 9|8c with an all-new episode of Ghost Adventures. Zak, Nick and Aaron make their return as the first and only investigators to visit the recently-closed Central Unit Prison in Sugar Land, TX.
Our Haunted Destination of the Week, Central Unit Prison has a history of violent inmates and brutal disciplinary practices –- in fact, the father of a former inmate tells Zak that it was the worst place his son had ever been.
The GAC also stops by the Texas Prison Museum where they find Bonnie Parker’s pistol among the museum’s creepy collection, and attempt to communicate with any spirits that may be lingering around the museum’s prized possession — an electric chair named Old Sparky.
