This is the SIXTH year for TERROR ON THE PLAINS and our first at the Boulevard Drive-In!! This year, we are expanding with two nights of horror flicks to kick off the Halloween season in Kansas City!!

There will be live music, costume contests, food trucks, vendors — all in a great venue to experience the best of Kansas City horror!

Our Friday Night event is sponsored by the IFCKC and will feature our annual short film segment with terrifying films from the midwest’s most twisted and demented filmmakers — and for the first time we will be crowning a TERROR ON THE PLAINS CHAMPION!!

That’s right, this year, Terror on the Plains VI will be a competition!

The Terror on the Plains film competition will be held on Friday, Sept. 29 at Boulevard Drive-In, part of a two-night party to kick-off Halloween season in Kansas City!
