Time for another giveaway! We would like to increase our social media footprint, so to enter, we’re asking you to make a post referencing 366 Weird Movies either on Facebook or Twitter (using either “#366WeirdMovies” or “@366WeirdMovies”). Then, return here to and link to your post in the comments to enter. (You can say whatever you want in your post, from “give me some free stuff @366WeirdMovies” to “You suck, #366WeirdMovies.” Just mention us and return here to tell us!)
We are going to select the winner from the eligible comments randomly using random.org (One entry per person, please).
The usual eligibility rules apply: to receive the DVD/Blu-ray, 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). You also must be over the age of 18. 366 contributors are not eligible for the prize. We’ll stop accepting entries Tuesday, December 18, at midnight EST. If the winner does not respond to our request for a mailing address within 24 hours we’ll email a runner-up, and so forth, until the prize is given away. We don’t guarantee your prize will arrive before Christmas.
And now, for our prizes, both courtesy of Artsploitation Films. First up is a Blu-ray copy of Snowflake, a meta-narrative feature in which an amateur dentist screenwriter finds his own characters pressuring him to change the outcome in his script that features hitmen, angels, superheroes, and fascists fighting it out in a dystopian future Germany. We’re big fans of this movie and heartily recommend it: if you don’t believe us, check out Giles Edwards rave review and our just-published interview with director Adolfo J. Kolmerer.
And because it’s that time of the year, our second chilly feature is Norway’s Christmas Blood (DVD). Artsploitation pitches it thusly: “Horror’s Santa-slasher sub-genre mixes with Scandinavian Noir in this bloody Xmas tale. Christmas is a time of peace, love and family. But not for Norway as a psychopath dressed in a Santa Claus suit has been terrorizing them for the past 13 years. For as soon as the caroling starts, this demented Kris Kringle dispenses bloody ax blows regardless of whether you’ve been bad or good. As the holiday approaches on one snow-covered town filled with revelers, a pair of detectives work against time to find and arrest this bearded serial killer. Will they manage to stop this demented St. Nick before he kills again? Director Reinert Kiil (The House, Whore) delivers a dark, disturbing and bloody holiday thriller.”
