    For all the lucky members of the forums we've had four big contests to celebrate our favorite horror month. This last contest, though, extends out to every HORRORDVDS.COM reader, whether you are a forum member or not. This is a winner take all contest, and the prizes are huge. But what do you have to do?

    Since I know all of you are going to be dressing up as your favorite horror movie ghoul this Halloween, we want to document that for our contest. For this contest, you have to recreate a favorite moment and/or character from a horror film and take a picture. Stand outside the bushes like Michael, lie in a coffin like Legosi, or listen to your walkmen like Bub. There's no limit to what you can do, and even if you don't have a kickass costume, it's the creativity that counts. If you're afraid about privacy, then just recreate a scene using your Lego. The possibilities are endless!

    Recreate a horror film moment, get your friend to take a picture and then upload it here, and you could win big. The only stipulation is that you have to have "HORRORDVDS.COM" written somewhere in the actual photo to prove it is authentic. Since this contest is extended out to everyone on the internet, we want to be able to prove that you did it all for us ("It's all for you, Damien!").

    For an example of the stuff you can do (and do much better!) here's my thrown together recreation of a famous scene from TROLL 2:

    That's all you need to do! So get your idea sorted out, snap the photo, and have your chance to win this great GRINDHOUSE prize pack courtesy of the great member, SaviniFan:

    -Death Proof Best Buy Exclusive Steelbook
    -Planet Terror Best Buy Exclusive Steelbook
    -Grindhouse 254 Page Hardcover from Weinstein Books
    -Grindhouse Poster 24X36 Autographed by Tom Savini at the 2007 Motorcity Comic Con
    -All 3 Planet Terror Figures by Neca
    -4 Grindhouse Buttons by Neca



    Since this is a Halloween contest, it will rightfully end at the stroke of midnight following October 31st. After that, all the submissions will be put onto the main page, where everyone will get a chance to vote on their favorite. You've got a week to come up with something great, so do your part and make this the best HORRORDVDS.COM contest yet!

    To keep this fair for everyone, this time every contest submission must be emailed directly to me at rhett@horrordvds.com. I will then post the pictures to retain anonymity for the vote.

    Again, this contest is for everyone, from eight year forum members to first time readers. Dress up and have some fun, and show us what you've got!

    "My name's Rhett, rarin' to bet."

    While it would be awesome if I won by default, since SaviniFan's prizes are awesome, I know everyone's going to put in the extra little bit to make this a great contest. DO IT!

    Submission #1

    [​IMG]

    The story goes that at 4:55 AM one morning, Gizmo decided it was too much, and pigged out in the sink under a cold faucet and a hot, bright light. The entire experience was like a bad trip, creating a sort of backwards reality in which all things became reversed and not understandable. These included his tag (cautioning his owner not to do what Gizmo had just done himself), and the writing on his bag of Hostess mini-muffins. Curiously, a hidden backwards message on the inside of the bag of muffins is clearly legible in this photograph, suggesting that it may have, in fact, been the most important thing to Gizmo in his young life. A search of Gizmo's Recent Pages revealed he had been posting as one "puddytay" on the mysterious site.

    Poor, dumb animal...

    lol... cool.

    I wish I could participate... but no digital camera... no scanner... so not possible for me.

    You may just win your own prize at this rate! :D

    Surely you have some terribly pixelated camera phone. One must exhaust any method possible when art is on the line!
