366 Weird Movies brings you a new DVD giveaway contest, just in time for Halloween!
Given that the holiday is coming up fast, we’re going to make this one simple and quick. All you have to do is to tell us (in the comments below) what costume you would wear to the virtual 366 Halloween costume party. The only rules are you must go as a character from a Certified Weird movie (see the handy list in the left sidebar), and you can’t wear the same costume as anyone else. To receive the DVDs, you must supply us with a mailing address in the United States and not have won a prize from us in the past six months. Also, given the nature of the prize, by entering you are certifying that you are 17 years of age or older.
Even if you don’t qualify, you’re still invited to participate just for fun and tell us what you’d wear to the party—but please tell us your just in the contest for fun. We’re not going to bother judging your choice; assuming you follow the rules, we’ll choose the winner at random from all valid entries using the random number generator at random.org.
Our prizes are once again provided by Artsploitation Films (distributors of the Certified Weird Der Samurai). These are factory-sealed DVDs, not used review copies. Both are appropriate to the season. The first is an 2015 remake of José Ramón Larraz’s 1974 lesbian vampire classic, Vampyres. From the box cover:
“Faithful to the sexy, twisted 1974 cult classic of the same name, Vampyres is an English-language remake pulsating with raw eroticism, wicked sado-masochism and bloody, creative gore. Set in an English manor where two older female vampires live along with a man they keep locked up in the basement, their world is upended when a trio of campers come upon their lair and seek to uncover their dark secrets. They come to regret their curiosity! An elegantly sensual and bloodcurdling tale.” More info (and a NSFW trailer) here.
The other prize, which literally just arrived in our mailbox today and is being thrown in as a serendipitous bonus prize, is Killbilles [Idila, AKA Idyll], Slovenia’s take (!) on the killer redneck genre. From the box cover:
A group of fashionistas from the city, out on an idyllic countryside hilltop, are confronted by two physically deformed psychopathic countrymen. A wild, bloody, taut clash ensues between urban and rural, women and men, between savages and civilized man.” More information here.
We’ll be closing contest entries at midnight EST on Sunday, October 23, to give us time to mail the prize before the stroke of midnight on All Hallows Eve.
To get things started, this year I will virtually attend dressed as one of those purple-pink chess rook Globolink aliens from Help! Help! The Globolinks, because I’m sure no one else will be willing to wiggle into that costume. I just need to remember to make some airholes…
…how about you?
