After a lucky 13 humorous submissions to our recent My Bloody Contest, it is time to now sift through and choose the winners. What the contestants had to do was use a photo of a heart (courtesy, of course, of MY BLOODY VALENTINE) and edit it into whatever picture they desired. These are the results, and they'll be put up for vote here until Sunday, February 18th at 11:59 PM MST.

In case of a tie, the winner will be determined by the forum member with the most seniority. So pick away, guys and gals, and let's give away some prizes!

The submissions can be found by clicking here (http://horrordvds.com/vb3forum/showthread.php?t=32624).

Lots of good ones to be sure, well done all the entrants.

However, for me, The Queen deserves the nod, and the wave.

Agreed.

For me, it was a choice of either Classy, Out-of-this-world or Tasteless (or something-else-less). I chose Classy. You can guess what the other two were ... :lol:

Which is exactly why it shouldn't win. It took him what, 30 seconds to make that? How crass, unfunny and uncreative.

Luna's masterpiece deserves to win by all counts, it's an actual work of art.

That being said, I had to go with bigdaddyhorse's Burger King tribute, which cracks me up every time I look at it. Probably has something to do with my old allegiance to the true King of Fast Food.

This coming from John Waters' biggest fan? Seems like somewhat of a contradiction.

To set the record straight though, this contest has never been about who has the best photoshop skills. This contests are designed to be as accessible as possible to everyone, which is why I always specify that it isn't about which image looks the best or most realistic, but rather which one people find the most creative.

Is a heart-shaped labia artistic? Well, Andy Warhol has gotten away with much worse... :D

Surely being on a horrordvds site you would expect to see gross things.This ain't a PG site.
Turning a tragic death into a joke is much more tastless than exploiting someone who was showing of their shit to get attention.

Maybe this contest should have been moved to Freaks and Geeks. I intentionally avoided pictures of Brit showing her business and didn't need it forced on me on the front page.

I did really like the Anna Nicole one though. By the time the media is through with her, that picture will probably be about right.

This isn't an Obit thread, so I can safely say that while Smith's death was sad for her kids, I don't think it reached the level of "tragic".

I like good ideas, execution isn't a factor in what I vote for. I admit, the Britney picture is plain nasty and not funny. The main isue with it though is that is didnt incorporate the heart into the picture in a effective way. It comes across as a juvenile little picture rather than a thoughtful and cool way of using the heart.

Still, there's a reason why I never enter competitions on here. :lol:

Well it has the most votes so it must be funny.

If a movie like Jackass 2 is box-office gold does that automatically make it funny? I think not.

I'd bet my ass if Luna had posted that you would have found it funny and voted for it.;)

Luna never would have submitted such a careless entry, so your point is moot.

It's a popularity contest man.Doesn't matter what is posted the votes go the same way.I really didn't even want to acknowledge any of this, but I do take issue with this statement. Do you honestly think it's a mere popularity contest? How do you explain this contest's results (http://horrordvds.com/vb3forum/showthread.php?t=24724&highlight=regan+contest) then, if you are implying that I merely get votes because I am "popular" and not because I try to strive for quality in my entries? I'd almost think that was meant to be insulting... and for what purpose exactly?

Anyway, that issue aside, thanks for the great contest, MorallySound and Rhett! You can be damn sure I'll be enjoying those Bela movies. I almost bought that DVD the other week. I'm so glad I didn't now! :banana:

There were some funny entries this time around, I might add!

Idea for future forum contests: Since rhett has been slacking and needs more responsibilities anyway, let's have the contestants pm their entries to him, and then have rhett post the entries in the contest thread so that the members voting will not know the creator of each piece until after the contest is over and the votes are tallied.

I was thinking that we used this approach before on one photo contest.....?

I know, it's not airtight, but it might be an improvement, yes? I mean, at the very least, it means more work for our rhett, who still needs to pay his penance for that The Wicker Man (2006) review. :p

There's no way it's based on popularity, cuz if it was I wouldn't have made 3rd or won the Dawn Of Dead one (http://www.horrordvds.com/vb3forum/showthread.php?t=27340) a year and a half ago. I've been around the boards long time, but wouldn't call myself popular by any means.
Luna just has mad PS skillz so the rest of us have to step our game up. ZoSo did that and touched the juvenile humor bone in many.
Congrats.

Thanks to MorallySound and Rhett for another great contest. These are always lots of fun for most (I'd say everyone/all, but can't with a straight face due to all the controversy).

I'm happy mine at least got one vote besides my own :D . I was really hoping just to tie for 3rd or something so I would have got the seniority win. ;) Fun contest, congrats to the winners. The only problem I had with the Britney one, was that I didn't think of it first. :p

That is a good idea. The only problem I forsee is that it further complicates things, and it might discourage some of the shier contestants. We can try it out though, if everyone else thinks it is a good idea.

I think the "controversy" was blown a little out of proportion this time around, and for me, and I think I can say most, it was still another enjoyable HorrorDVDs contest. We're all fans of horror and cult movies here, so I don't think anyone can justifiably flip their nose in the face of bad taste. And as avid supporters of uncut films, the freedom of expression here should be a given.

I had a blast though, and here's a list of what you already know:

1. "Britney shows a little heart" ZoSo
2. "I Don't" Luna
3. "The True Motivation For Chestbursting" Spit

Our main man bigdaddyhorse, who tied for third and has seniority, forfeited his win because he already owns the disc. What a sport!

Thanks to all who played, and until next time...


The Wicker Man (2006) is awesome.

Your Dawn of the Dead one is my all-time favorite entry of all of these contests. You could have been Public Enemy #1 and I would have voted for you. I had it for my wallpaper for awhile.

I think the best way to keep the contests totally fair is to have a lot of entries. Maybe this one will show others without mad photoshop skillz that, with the right picture, they too can win and we will get even more entries next time. It could be a whole lot of fun. I do hope that I don't have to see some person's privates next go around though, but I am aware that you can't always get what you want.

I still have that as wallpaper now!

Just today my GF was asking me to mess with some pictures to see if they can be fixed & printed on a tee shirt for a school function she's overseeing. I immediatly thought I should see if I can GWTD shirts printed!
If I can, I'll be sure to offer them to the board as I know from my band days the more you print, the cheaper they each are. Of course my original isn't much bigger than the attachment so I get the feeling it won't work, but someday I'm gonna find out for sure.:)
