Federal prosecutors in Massachusetts have released chilling photos of a basement torture chamber where a man plotted to kidnap, rape and cannibalize children.

Geoffrey Portway, 40, who lived in Worchester but was born in Britain, is scheduled to be sentenced to as many as 27 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty in May to solicitation to commit a crime and child porn charges.

Feds raided the 40-year-old’s home in July 2012, confiscating computers and hard drives later found to contain thousands of child porn pics and other graphic images, which Portway traded with other sickos online, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts said.

Many of the 4,500 pics depicted “dead children and the cannibalism of children,” the state’s attorney’s office said in a statement.

During a raid in July 2012, cops discovered a soundproof chamber in Portway's basement. Inside was a  steel table outfitted with rings that could be used to secure handcuffs or restraints.

During the raid, agents also discovered a soundproof dungeon hidden behind a series of locked doors in Portway’s basement.

The room contained a child-sized homemade coffin that locked from the outside, a small steel cage and a steel table outfitted with rings that could be used to secure handcuffs or other restraints.

Outside the room, cops found two freezers a collection of disposable scalpels, a set of butchers knives, and a tool used to castrate calves and lambs.

The British sicko also had a collection of restraints, sex toys and DVDs and books about cannibalism.

On Portway’s computer, feds discovered chat logs in which Portway traded pictures and videos depicting dead children and child cannibalism, and also described his plans to abduct, rape and eat little kids, in some cases soliciting others for help.

In one disturbing excerpt, Portway and puppeteer in Largo, Fla., Ronald Brown, discussed kidnapping a child in the Everglades, eating his body over several weeks and then leaving the “leftovers” to alligators, The Boston Herald reported.

The room also contained a 'child-sized' homemade coffin that locked from the outside and a small steel cage, the feds said.

Brown even sent Portway a photo of a child with “lines drawn on him to identify the different cuts of meat,” the newspaper reported.

Brown was sentenced in July to 20 years in prison on child porn charges.

Over several months in 2010, Portway and a Kansas man, Michael Arnett, mused over Skype about their demented schemes and, in many cases, traded the names and photos of real children that Portway wished to kidnap, rape and eat, the feds said.

“In the chats, Portway and Arnett discuss different ways to kidnap children and the age range that Portway prefers,” the U.S. attorney’s office said.

“During the time … Portway had been told that Arnett had helped others with such requests before and that Arnett had experience with the abduction and sexual abuse of children.”

Arnett has since pleaded guilty to child porn charges in Kansas.

The feds began tailing Portway in 2012 after linking him to a Web chat room where users discussed cannibalism, rape and child porn.

The case recalled the recent NYPD “Cannibal Cop” scandal in which a cop was caught conspiring to kill, cook and eat more than 100 women.

Gilberto Valle, 28, was convicted in March and faces life in prison.
