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

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:

vampyres-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:

Killbillies (2015) DVD cover“Proving that the American South does not hold a monopoly on sexually depraved, bloodthirsty hillbillies, KILLBILLIES depicts a harrowing tale if abduction, violence, and hoped-for survival.

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?


  1. Oh, that’s easy. A full-body Chernabog costume, straight out of Fantasia, gigantic wings and tiny demons and all. When it comes to costume parties, bigger is always better in my book.

  2. I would go as David from John Dies at the End and carry around a hot dog like a phone so as to psychically communicate with the deceased(?) John.

  3. I would be the actual Wicker Man from The Wicker Man with Edward Woodward encased inside me while I burn.

  4. I would go as the sinister phantasm that exists behind the diner from David Lynch’s, Mulholland Drive! The anxiety-ridden tale that a character’s sets up (he’s been dreaming of this phantom behind the dumpster and now comes to face his fear) gives us one of the best scares in ANY movie. Not only is the actual fiend quite disturbing – grubby, witchy, primitive looking – but it would make an excellent frightful costume that few people would be able to recognize – and if they did recognize it from Mulholland Drive, they would feel infinitely superior and special! Everyone else would be WTF is THAT!

    1. Oh super sweet! This is my favorite movie website and I can’t wait to watch these, especially the Vampryes remake. Will Killbillies out monster the inbreds of Wrong Turn or the Hills Have Eyes franchises? Excited. Thanks Weird366!
