I love Halloween. I love October. I love horror movies. I love finding stuff I’ve never seen before and god damn it, I love giving you free stuff. So that I can get my fill of all those things all at once, we’ve devised a contest to run over the next two weeks within our 31 Days of Horror feature.
Unlike our normal easy-cakes contests where all you have to do is make us laugh, this one is going to require you to dig deep into your horror knowledge and blow us away.
You see, we’re kind of horror experts. If it involves a knife slashing through a nudie girl, I’ve seen it. If it involves a Japanese demon shooting poop out of a girls nipples, Hunter has seen it. If it’s an afternoon kids special that has never scared a single soul, Abaius has openly wept in front of it. So here’s the challenge: tell us a good horror movie we haven’t seen. Read on.
It sounds simple, I know. But there are a few rules. Most importantly, it has to be a good movie. Just because we haven’t seen it doesn’t mean you win. I haven’t seen your cousin’s 28 minute masterpiece Last Rape Cabin in the Woods of the Evil Nightmare. If we watch it, and it sucks, you still lose. This movie has to be good because we’re going to review it for 31 Days of Horror and give you all the shout-outs you can handle. Plus prizes, but I digress.
Secondly, the movie has to stump the majority of us Rejects. If you tell us we should really check out Rubber or Madman, don’t be expecting anything from us. We know them, we’ve seen them. Now, if you suggest something most of us haven’t heard of, or only one of us has seen, we might make an exception if it’s especially good.
So put on your thinking cap.
Third, and easiest of all, is you have to provide your answer by October 16th. This will give us time to track down and watch all the entries that make it past our “already seen it” wall. The winner will then be notified, we’ll review the flick, and send you some cool stuff. If more than one person impresses us, we’ll send out prizes to more than one person. Easy as that.
What’s up for grabs right now is a mixed bag that will probably grow over the next two weeks as I unearth more free stuff to provide, but right now, here’s what could potentially be yours:
- DVD copy of Neowolf
- DVD copy of History’s MonsterQuest: Movie Monsters
- 5 Disc DVD Set of History’s Haunted Histories Collection: America’s Most Haunted Places
- 20 Disc DVD Collection of History’s Haunted Histories
Yes, we did a similar give-away last year. What can we say, History gives us cool stuff to pass on. I’m a fan of all of these shows and they’re definitely something that fits in with 31 Days of Horror. Like I also said, I’m going to be digging around for more free stuff too. This is just to whet your appetite.
So what are you waiting for? Blow us away with your knowledge of horror movies below. Tell me something I haven’t seen that I need to. Oh, and to make it easy on us, these movies have to be accessible. Your cousin’s short that only exists on one VHS tape is going to be hard for us to find.
