The title is mine in honor of the fact that too many horror movies seem to take place in some remote corn field.
I have been on a quest my entire life to find a horror movie that was so scary that I couldn't fall asleep from incapacitating fear. It hasn't happen
yet, and at this point I am not going to hold my breath waiting for it to.
I know I am not the only one that likes to be scared (safely... nothing sick going on here) so when I found this website, I knew I had to share it.
Welcome To Horror Camp
The Great Horror Campout is a camping experience unlike any other. It’s basically the camping trip of your nightmares packed into a single
night of spine-chilling fun, and it’s definitely not for the feint of heart
The horror campout is the latest project from Ten Thirty One Productions, the company that previously created The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride.
According to their official website, “The Great Horror Campout is a 12-hour overnight interactive horror camping adventure.
The scary stuff begins at 8 pm and continues uninterrupted until 8 am the next day. During this time, campers are welcome to sleep, but they might
experience ‘erratic interruptions’. The event comes with a disclaimer: “During Great Horror Campout, you may be forcibly handled, moved, bound,
hooded, chained and subjected to simulated torture by our actors. You may witness strong verbal content, which may be considered offensive in nature.
The content is part of the experience and is presented for entertainment purposes only.”
I'm not sure that I would like being forcibly handled, moved, bound, hooded, chained, and subjected to simulated torture myself, but the rest sounds
like it might be fun. I suppose just wondering if any of those things were going to happen to you would probably raise the fear factor considerably.
Campers can choose their level of engagement by their choice of activities and tent zone. It can be extreme horror adventure or a more mild horror
adventure. It’s completely up to the camper.”So what exactly classifies as ‘mild’ and ‘extreme’ horror? Well, for a more laid-back haunted
experience, you could choose a night of watching horror movies and exchanging horror stories while roasting marshmallows around a camp fire. No
monsters will join you inside your tent. They call this the ‘Chicken Zone’.
The other tent sections don’t offer much in terms of rest – these are meant for the more ‘high octane horror fans’. Each tent can accommodate
a minimum of two and a maximum of four people. Campers can choose between a range of activities in three categories: the Chicken Zone, the High
Startle, and the Interactive Highly Immersive Terror.
They obviously have some pretty good costumes and makeup going on judging from the picture above!
Of course, the website assures that all the experiences are purely for entertainment, and no one will be in real danger. But just in case it all
gets too overwhelming at any point, a camper can simply yell a safe phrase. All the big, bad monsters will back off, the moment they hear you scream:
“I want my mommy!”
I wonder how many people scream the "safe phrase" on any given night they have this? My money would be on more than a few. I would also bet that more
men say it than women do. lol
Organizers are suggesting campers bring a few changes of underwear, just in case. If they’re expecting people go through more than one pair
underwear in just one night, you can imagine the horrors they’ll probably put them through. As they declare on their home page: “Only the dawning
sun will save you.”
So they suggest bringing extra underwear as only the dawn will save you!!
So what say you ATS?? Would you go?
