    It may be cooling off this time of year, but things are heating up at HORRORDIGITAL.COM for October Madness. Well, kind of. Adam Green's chiller, FROZEN, hit Blu-ray & DVD earlier this fall, and we've got two posters autographed by the HATCHET director himself! All you have to do to win one is tell us what your favorite winter-set horror movie is.

All you have to do to win one is tell us what your favorite winter-set horror movie is.

    Over the years there have been a bunch of horror movies that really use the snow and the season to really set the mood. I can't imagine movies like THE SHINING, MISERY or THE CHANGELING without picturing those desolate icy landscapes. Which one sticks out most to you?

    Up for grabs for 2 lucky winners is an autographed FROZEN poster by Director Adam Green

    The contest runs for one full week and will end Monday, October 18th, when our next contest will begin. We will have a contest every week this October as part of our October Madness extravaganza.

    To enter, make a single post in this thread telling us your favorite winter-set horror movie. Winners will be randomly selected based upon all the posts in this thread.

    Let's hear it, horror fans...what snowy movie chills you most, and why?

    I'm sure this one'll be picked quite a bit, but is there really a better winter horror film than Kubrick's The Shining? Some of the performances may be off, but the direction is pitch perfect.

    Gremlins. The winter setting and christmastime anarchy make it all the more memorable.

    A snowy, winter-setting adds a lot to a horror film. My favorite is The Thing, but every movie listed so far is good in my book.

    It isn't just a winter movie, not just a Christmas movie but a Killer Santa Claus movie. You can't find a better Christmas movie and of course it's a winter thing.

    I loved Frozen and the original Black Christmas is my favorite slasher of all time.



    But for my pick, I'm going to have to go with Larry Fessenden's Wendigo. I watch it every winter, and I love it more every time I see it. It is not a film for everyone, but I think it is a masterpiece of atmosphere and psychological horror. It's not a film you just watch, you experience it.

    Silent Night Deadly Night.....PUNISH!!!

    Always loved Winter-set horror. Wish there was more. Shining, The Thing, GhostKeeper, Black Christmas, Dead Snow, Shredder (not that great though), Silent Night Bloody Night. I look forward to watching Frozen - got the Blu.

    Okay this may seem stupid to some but I gotta go with 30 days of night. Just the concept of having to survive an experience like that & what you would do if that were you. Really makes think what kind of a person you are. Cause let's face it everyone thinks they would do the right thing but in the face of real danger alot of people just think of themselves.
    I hope that made sense.

    Black Christmas is my favorite horror film, so the answer is obvious.

    This was a toss-up between 30 Days of Night and The Thing. In the end, I would give The Thing a slight edge, so I'd say it's my favorite.
