It's Coming From Inside the House! - Watch 'Sleepaway Camp' With MoPOP + Special Guest Anthony Hudson
We’rebaaaaack! It's Coming From Inside the House!, MoPOP’s monthly horror film series, is crawling out from the grave of 2020 and wreaking fresh havoc in the new year.
For our first online watchalong of 2021, we’ve invited Anthony Hudson, host of Queer Horror, the only LGBTQIA+ horror film series in the US, to select a film that they feel deserves a place on our list of 100+ Horror Films to See Before You Die. Anthony chose Sleepaway Camp, a quintessential teen camp slasher that introduced the world to the finest side-pony-sporting mean girl in the genre and whose unforgettable ending is still widely discussed among horror fans.
Here’s a handful of program elements that you can expect to see:
Pre-film introduction with MoPOP’s Robert Rutherford and Anthony Hudson, host and programmer of Queer Horror, the only LGBTQ+ horror film series in the US, hosted at the Hollywood Theater in Portland, Oregon
Cheap-as-heck quarantine cosplay
Here’s some inspiration for the simplest and finest costume in all of horror:Judy!
Chat with Robert, Anthony, and other fans during the film
Post-film reaction to the film and discussion on why Sleepaway Camp deserves a spot on MoPOP's list of 100+ Horror Films to See Before You Die
As with all of our virtual events, you'll need to register in advance to attend and instructions on how to join will be e-mailed to you on event day. If you happen to own a copy of the film, get it queued up at 7 p.m. PT on Friday, January 15! Otherwise, here's where you can find Sleepaway Camp online:
