Hanged Saddam top draw at Mumbais House of Horrors

A re-enactment of the hanging of Iraqs deposed leader Saddam Hussein is drawing crowds at a new horror exhibition in Mumbai.

Mumbai, May 17 : A re-enactment of the hanging of Iraq's deposed leader Saddam Hussein is drawing crowds at a new horror exhibition in Mumbai.

"House of Horrors", modelled on Madame Tussauds' Chamber of Horrors, has actors popping out with axes, men dressed as bloodthirsty killers and screeching witches to frighten visitors as they move along a maze-like dungeon.

As visitors walk along on an uneven pathway, a rubber replica of Hussein's head pops up with a noose tied around the neck. The head makes a snapping noise, hinting that the neck was being broken.

"Saddam Hussein is a very famous personality all over the world. So we thought of recreating his hanging. People have seen the clipping around the world". said Satish Reddy, one of the owners of House of Horrors.

Reddy, however, said he was not worried about possible opposition to using Hussein's death for his business.

Visitors said the hanging looked real with the model closely resembling the Iraqi leader. It was fearful, they said.

"Suddenly, you see a person you have been hearing about -- his execution and everything. He comes in front of you, in kind it scares you," said Burkha, one of the visitors.

As soon as shrieking visitors back off from the swaying head of Hussein, they run into a masked actor chasing them with an axe.

The 20-minute walkthrough costs around 163 rupees per person.
