Event:
Do you like scary movies?
This December the number one event on every horror fan's calendar, the Horror Movie Campout, is screaming its way back to Melbourne's Point Cook Homestead...

The main idea of the Horror Movie Campout is to become immersed in a horror movie.

Apart from the live music and DJ's and the campout's terrifyingly realistic scare actors, that will have you running and screaming for your life (see picture proof below), a new addition to the horror component of the campout; the 'Escape Cage' challenge has been announced to up the ante. The escape challenge will see willing attendees blindfolded, hands cable tied, locked in a cage, and given a time parameter to escape. Winners (possibly thanks to sawing off an arm) are rewarded by the cage keeper; losers face a much worse fate...

Take it from someone who knows; this dude doesn't play around.

That's a fear smile right there.


If you're game, here's the current event schedule:

2:30pm: car park and campsite open

4:00 - 9:00pm: The event starts; as immersive scare actors roam the site, live music from Destrends, Batz, Burning Bridges (Triple J Unearthed), and DJ Savage rock the main stage as guests brave the 'death chamber' scare maze and compete in the 'Escape Cage' challenge.

7:30pm: event check-in closes.

9:00pm (approx.): Once night falls, campers gather around the glow of a projection screen for a horror movie marathon, featuring flicks decided by an online vote.

7:30am: coffee and breakfast available.

10:30am: checkout time.


If you're new to the HMC/immersive horror scene, here are some helpful tips from a brave veteran:

- Bring cash for the bar and food vans (EFTPoS is limited).

- Bring a roll-up mattress, swag, sleeping bag, pillow, and low cinema chair (even if you have a Lazy Camper package).

- Don't be that horror movie character - bring a torch.

- No Pass-outs are available.

- Tickets need to be printed for scanning; showing a ticket on your phone does not count.

- You cannot BYO alcohol.

- The HMC is a strictly NO ID = NO ENTRY event.

- Remember it's Melbourne and there's always a chance of rain.

- Makeup artists are on-site for gory makeovers - so you don't have to spend that much time getting ready.

- You can dress-up but you can't bring any real weapons.
