To wrap up our crazy month of horror, we must decide on who is going to walk away with the big prize. There were 9 great submissions for the Halloween Costume Contest, and now it's your job to pick your favorite.

Contest voting ends exactly three days after this post, so at close to noon on Sunday.

For reference, here's the thread (http://horrordvds.com/modules.php?name=News&file=showarticle&threadid=35229) with high resolution pictures to better help you make up your mind.

All of these are inventive. Great work, very funny.

#5 gets my vote, not only for the awesome sign, but also because he had to be naked, outside, in public. You really wanted it!

These all made me smile, though. The Ring-inspired option was...inspired!

I really like them all, but I went with Sleepaway Camp. You got to respect someone willing to put it all on the line to win.

I absolutely loved number 4,5, and 6. Number 5 gets my vote, not just for sheer ballsiness( don't know if that's even a word) but it's a great representation of my favorite ending to any movie ever ! The Nightmare ( really took a lot of guts too) ,and Maniac ( awesome reference)re-creations were great too !:D

#5 gets my vote. Not only did he get naked and stand outside, but he actually took time to light the shot and make a cool sign. Hilarious stuff! :D

Sleepaway Camp for me too. He took it to another level there. Props to the Ring submission too for the sequence of events idea.

Sleepaway Camp. Superior in location, "costume", and moment memorability. Close second to Halloween III in sign-age.

Thanks for all the great submissions, guys and gals, this marks the conclusion of our October Madness month. And now, since I know the mystery was killing everyone, here are the winners!

1st Place: MorallySound (we all walk around nude in Canada, trust me)
2nd Place: Chunkblower (another Canadian, see the pattern?)
3rd Place: rxfiend

MorallySound, send a message over to SaviniFan for your prize, and Chunkblower and rxfiend, give me your shipping details and I'll get you your Cryptkeeper goods.

Bwana the Clown's great Maniac recreation was tied for third as well, but based on seniority, rxfiend gets the prize.

Now, can we guess everyone else's submissions? :D

PS MorallySound, you so crazy. Well played. The win is well deserved.

Yay! Congrats to all the other winners! And great submissions everybody!

Interesting fact: It was -2 degrees Celsius (around 28 degrees Fahrenheit) when I took the photo. And took the whole photo by myself.

I had The Ring entry which wasn't nearly as well received as I had hoped, haha! MorallySound, AWESOME entry and congrats on the win. Same goes for both runner ups. Man, I love these contests!

I had fun taking my Halloween 3 tribute picture. It's my all time favorite movie for the season and since I had the masks laying around (didn't have a witch mask, but the devil mask fit that particular child to a T...LOL), I decided to see what I could take. Originally I was going to be in the photo as well screaming into the phone, doing my Tom Atkin's impression, but decided not too. Too bad I didn't have some fake bugs lying around.

Awesome work everybody! And thanks for yet another great comp. Nothing like tantalising prizes to get the creative juices flowing!

(Also good to see nudity and child exploitation get the credit & kudos they deserve!)

I have no idea why I signed with my name at the bottom. In a bid to make me feel less awkward about this, could all people responding to this thread please do the same? Thanks.

Mine was the Gizmo one, taken with my iBook's built-in camera that takes pictures in reverse.

I thought the framing was pretty decent, considering I had to position a fucking computer above a sink to get it.

Congrats to those that are better than me.

Congrats to the winners!!

I know I submitted my entry over 10hrs too late from the deadline but here was my entry none the less.

I will say that some of those pics still look photoshopped and even still, the HorrorDVDs moniker wasn't used in others.
