366 Weird Movies brings you a new DVD giveaway contest! With the Weirdcademy Awards coming up, we thought we’d make this an awards-themed contest. Now, we started awarding the Weirdcademy Awards for Weirdest Picture, Actor, Actress, Scene and Short in 2010. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to nominate a movie/short/actor/actress/scene for a movie from a year before 2010, and post your choice in the comments below. For example, you might say, “I nominate the bit in Eraserhead where the lady in the radiator stomps on the giant sperm creatures that fall from the ceiling as ‘weirdest scene’ of 1977″ or “I nominate Bibi Andersson as Weirdest Actress of 1966 for Persona—or, was that Liv Ullmann?” There are many, many obvious choices, and you don’t have to be clever to win—you just have to show that you’re paying attention. We’ll index the responses and pick a winner randomly using random.org from all entries that meet the criteria.
As usual, please observe the following eligibility rules: to receive the DVDs, you must supply us with a mailing address in the United States, and you must not have won a prize from us in the past six months. If you don’t meet those qualifications you can still participate for fun, but let us know you’re not in it for the prize. We’ll be closing the contest Monday, February 20 at midnight.
Our prize is once again provided by Artsploitation Films (distributors of the Certified Weird Der Samurai). This is a factory-sealed DVD, not a used review copy. The movie is The Devil Lives Here [AKA The Fostering], a 2015 Brazilian horror film based on local folklore. From the box cover:
“Candyman meets Brazilian mythology in this terrifying tale of demonic spirits, black slavery and the group of young people terrorized by what they have unwittingly unleashed. Three teens visit their friend at his remote family farmhouse. Bad timing, because every nine months, a vengeful evil takes over this ancient house, which is this exact day the teens gather. What was supposed to be a night of scary stories and fun becomes instead a violent, bloody descent into hell.”
You have your instructions, now get to it!
