Cannibal Campout

Come celebrate the Shot-on-Video era with a special VHS screening!

Join us for this special screening presented in conjunction with Terror Vision who will be introducing the film and hosting a table in the lobby with exclusive merchandise!

The late 1980s were the golden age for video rental stores, as well as for homemade movies. Shot-on-video titles shared shelf space with Hollywood’s latest and greatest from coast to coast, and in the midst of it all came standout Cannibal Campout from directors Tom Fisher and Jon McBride (Feeders), a film that pushed the boundaries of gritty realism and mind melting gore.

Amy (Amy Chludzinski) and her friends break away from college for a weekend of camping in the peaceful New Jersey forest, but they are not alone. Holding true to a bizarre promise to their dear, departed mother, a group of madmen besiege the vacationing quartet, hellbent on torture and a feast of human flesh in Cannibal Campout.

1988, 88 MIN, USA, Not Rated, Directed by Jon McBride

  • "How many movies can you name which were made for $400, for a goof, in someone's back yard, with a VHS camcorder, with one person doing just about every single production job…that were ultimately released worldwide?"

    – Jon McBride, DIRECTOR
  • “The grossest scenes this side of H.G. Lewis…Will probably repulse even the staunchest vidiot.”

  • “Cannibal Campout has a wondrous amount of guts. The plot solely exists to get to the effects sequences that feature a healthy fixing of rednecks eating pig parts drenched in red food coloring.”

    – Drew Tinnin – DREAD CENTRAL
  • “This is prime SOV let me freakin tells ya. Its like the makers of Video Violence took acid, listened to Tangerine Dream and saw a Deliverance poster in their parents bedroom and BLAM PURE CINEMATIC MAGIC!"
