Great Horror Campout Presents The Strangers on June 26

The StrangersCoined “The Scariest Movie Ever Made,” The Strangers will be the featured horror film for the June 26th, Great Horror Movie Night.

Under the glow of the moon and stars, perched high above the LA skyline, horror fans will bring picnic baskets, blankets and chairs and prepare to scream their heads off as producing company Ten Thirty One Productions adds their own brand of horror by supplementing the on screen terror with some interactive real life scares taking place off the screen.

The night will start with pre-show games and festivities and will be hosted by the Great Horror Campout Headmaster, the overly confident and comedically condescending demeanored mascot of the summer event.

Great Horror Campout 2015 Delivers Dark Humor and Filthy Fun

Great_Horror_Campout_2015_3061“Only the dawning sun… will save you.” Those are the final words campers heard this past weekend in Los Angeles as the third annual Great Horror Campout got underway in the old zoo section of Griffith Park.

About one thousand guests – campers – gathered around a stage to hear their instructions for the night, as dictated by the sharp-tongued master of ceremonies, known as the Headmaster. Once camp orientation was complete, the excited campers made their way into the chilled night to participate in various challenges, and the signature attraction of the event – the Hell Hunt, a several-hour period that combines odd and sometimes gross group participation events with a physical scavenger hunt of sorts. The prizes are S.C.A.G. (Shit Campers All Get), and in the morning, when the event comes to a close, folks with the most S.C.A.G. points (items vary in point value) win the title of Hellmaster, which carries perks down the line with other events held by Ten Thirty One Productions.

2015 marked the third time Theme Park Adventure has witnessed the Great Horror Campout, and its evolution here in Los Angeles. Ten Thirty One Productions is also the group that owns/develops the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride, which we have covered for years now here in Southern California. They are a tremendously fun, creative team that always strives to come up with something spooky, crazy, and fun for its guests. While they sometimes fall a bit short in execution, most of the time, they deliver and guests flock to their events by the thousands.
