Do you have what it takes?
This is not your average sleep out, for a start there may be no sleep! It's serene setting is the supposedly haunted surrounds of the Point Cook Homestead.

It's described as the "Scariest festival to hit Australia"

When you buy a ticket it includes access to the festival and a car park and camping spot.

You could opt for their "Glamping" package though and this gives three campers a bit of a rock star experience with access to the VIP Glamping campground area. There's no need to worry about lost tent poles as a 3 person dome tent is reserved and set up for you. You'll also get closer to the action with seating reserved closer to the screen for the late night film.

Horror Movie Campout - Not for the faint hearted


There will be a fully stocked bar running and the event organisers ask you not to bring alcohol to the event, cars may be checked and entry may be refused.

Join in with the fun, a horror costume should definitely be packed.
The headline films get decided by you the campers so keep an eye out of the social media pages to find out when voting begins. There will also be some short horror films screened as darkness falls…. Just to let the fear creep in early!

Due to the film rating, the event is strictly an 18 plus event.

Tips
Check your tent is good to go before the event (apart from the VIP Glampers)
Make sure your phone is charged
Pack spare smalls
• Watch out for the random scare actors milling around the event…. Or are they actors?
• What happens at Horror Movie Campout stays at Horror Movie Campout

I am stuck between thinking this is the last thing I want to do and something telling me it would be one the highlights of my year!

Either way, it's going to be memorable.

That's a bit different. I like the concept but I'll leave it to the horror movie devotees.
