This does not look like getting away for a relaxed weekend
I've just seen an advertisement that says " Grab a group of friends, a torch and a clean pair of underwear".
Towards the end of May there is to be a Horror Movie Campout at the beautiful and usually sedate Sirromet Winery in Mount Cotton.
Sedate and green, from Sirromet website
A forty-five minute drive from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Sirromet Winery is a popular venue for wedding functions, fine dining, and of course wine tasting. The vast grounds with the breeze from beautiful Moreton Bay also lend themselves to hosting the annual Christmas Carols as well as the odd rock concert.
The Horror Movie Campout has all the makings to be an altogether different weekend, promising to be the most unique horror camping experience of the year.
The campsite opens at 12 noon on Saturday, 20th May, with the event gates and Horror Bar opening at 2 pm until midnight. The outdoor cinema featuring intense short horror movies and two renowned horror movies will commence at 6:30pm.
There will be a variety of hot food options available as well as fairy floss and popcorn to complement your viewing.
Actors wearing all manner of scream worthy accoutrements will be wandering the site and you are openly encouraged to dress in Horror Costume attire to win the prize for best-dressed camper.
I'm having flashbacks to nights of terror watching movies such as The Shining, and Children of the Corn, just thinking about all this, aren't you?
Melbourne Art Punk rockers, Destrend, will be performing on stage, with other music throughout the night. The Death Chamber scare maze has been designed to challenge your courage.
This does not sound at all like an evening at Gold Class, does it?
