We have a couple of physical media items to give away, and we’re making it simple. We’re asking you to name a weird and obscure movie we may not have noticed that’s currently playing for free on Amazon Prime. But, since not everyone has Amazon Prime or cares to do research, that’s optional—we’re making the contest open to everyone. Simply make a comment below that you wish to be entered in the contest. (You may also make an Amazon Prime recommendation without being entered in the giveaway, naturally).
Contest eligibility rules: You must comment on this post informing us of your desire to be in the contest. Due to the adult nature of the prize, you must be over 18 years of age to enter. To receive the two discs, you must supply us with a mailing address in the United States. (Don’t publish your address in your comment! We’ll contact the winner through email.) 366 contributors are not eligible to win the prize. We’ll stop accepting entries this Sunday, July 26, at midnight EST. The winner will be chosen randomly from all eligible comments. If the winner does not respond to our request for a mailing address within 48 hours, we’ll email a runner-up, and so forth, until the prize is given away.
As for the prizes:
You’ll get Grapevine Video’s 2008 release titled Haxan. Please note, however, that this is not the usual public domain cut of the film, but actually the shorter Witchcraft Through the Ages version that was released in 1968 with an avant-garde jazz score and narration by . If you’ve only seen the canonically weird original, this is a different experience altogether.
Plus, we’ll throw in a fresh Blu-ray copy of the newly-released homoerotic prison drama The Prince (2018), which currently has an 88% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Per the box cover, “The Prince is a deeply affecting exploration of masculine aggression, loyalties and desire.” Contains explicit scenes. You can read more about the film and watch the slightly NSFW trailer at distributor Artsploitation Films’ The Prince page.
Both disks are factory sealed. That’s a weird double feature, for sure. It can be yours for the price of a comment.
