The apocalypse begins in Colorado. Camp Ghoul Mountain Part VI is one of the most infamous slasher-movie sequels of the 1980s. Known for its over-the-top gore effects, bizarre and psychedelic campground killer plot—and its legacy as a lightning rod for conspiracy theories concerning everything from UFOs and alien abductions to 9/11 and a secret cabal at the heart of world power. This book contains a complete, authorized adaptation of the infamous cult slasher movie, as well as the secret history of a behind-the-scenes drama and high strange events that inspired the filmmakers, complete with

footnotes and autobiographical anecdotes. Camp Ghoul Mountain Part VI: The Official Novelization is a love letter to the horror movie boom of the 1980s, conspiracy theories of the 1990s—and, perhaps, a dire warning of the dark future to come.
