About Camp Horror

Camp Horror is a film festival a little bit different from the rest. This festival came to life after The Roxy started its monthly horror film series “Trash Talk”, where trashy b-movies get their time to shine amongst the high indie art the theater is known for. After seeing how Missoula showed up to sell out films like “Tammy & The T-Rex”, we knew there was something special happening. So to honor that community and give it a place to grow, Camp Horror was born.

Camp Horror Film Festival strives to be a home for gory classics, while giving newer stories a platform. Add elements of live theater, comedy and d.i.y. spirit makes this fantasy summer camp give you tingles unlike anything else this side of Mt. Sentinel.


The Camp Horror Shorts Block Tour will include Open Captions for all screenings.

Please contact your local theater for all other assistance requests.
