Call for Entries - Absence, Screamfest and DreadCentral Host #6SecondHorror Vine CompetitionOkay horror fans, listen up. Think you know scary? You have six seconds to prove it. The creative team behind Absence, Cinedigm’s upcoming release, has teamed up with ScreamFest L.A. and DreadCentral to host a Vine contest.

We’re trying to find the best six-second horror film out there. It’s easy: just Tweet your Vine video to @AbsenceFilm with the hashtags #6SecondHorror and #AbsenceIsComing. And it doesn’t have to be straight horror. Submissions can be sci-fi, thriller, slasher, whatever – as long as it raises some neck hairs.

Please keep in mind this promotion is meant to be in good fun so there are some rules you’ll have to abide by because we don’t want anyone getting into any trouble and assume no responsibility for those that do:

  • Contestants should not enter stores, disrupting business or destroying property, unless it is cleared beforehand by the store owner.
  • Contestants are not to directly approach anyone, much less chase them. If a person shies away, move along.
  • Contestants should not block traffic or disrupt their surroundings. A location should be exactly the way it was when you arrived after you leave it.
  • Contestants should absolutely NOT break any laws or endanger any animals or people.

    Winners will receive:

  • A FREE pass to ScreamFest Los Angeles in October (the largest film festival dedicated exclusively to horror)
  • Your short film recognized and featured on ScreamFestLA.com and DreadCentral.com

    All submissions will be curated and hosted on #6SecondHorror.com. I’ll be judging these things myself. After you submit, be sure to follow @AbsenceFilm on Twitter to see who wins! If your film is selected, you may be notified via direct message on Twitter, so following them is pretty important.

    The deadline (see what we did there?) to submit is June 24th, and the winners will be announced on June 27th! Get your cameras (and heads) rolling!

    Contest: Win DEATH LINE and DEATHDREAM on Blu-ray

    Published

    on

    Attention, ALL readers of Dread Central! Yes, that’s right… every one of you across the globe! We’re helping our pals over at Blue Underground with a contest where they will be giving a Blu-ray copy of Death Line and Deathdream to one of you! To enter, all you have to do is use the form below; and you’re all set!

    Also, to learn more about the titles, simply click on the names, and you’ll be taken to Blue Underground’s website, where you can see specifics about each film!

    To reiterate, this contest is open to people across the globe. Anyone, anywhere, can enter. However, the contest ends next Tuesday, May 1st, at 12 midnight ET, so make sure you enter before then!

    Death Line:
    When a prominent politician and a beautiful young woman vanish inside a London subway station, Scotland Yard’s Inspector Calhoun (Donald Pleasence of Halloween) investigates and makes a horrifying discovery. Not only did a group of 19th century tunnel workers survive a cave-in, but they lived for years in a secret underground enclave by consuming the flesh of their own dead. Now the lone descendant of this grisly tribe has surfaced, prowling the streets for fresh victims… and a new mate.

    Deathdream:
    In this shattering variation on The Monkey’s Paw, grief-stricken suburban parents (Academy Award nominees John Marley of The Godfather and Lynn Carlin of Faces) refuse to accept the news that their son, Andy (Richard Backus), has been killed in Vietnam. But when Andy returns home soon after, something may be horribly wrong: Andy is alive and well… or is he? Produced and directed by Bob Clark (Black Christmas) and written by Alan Ormsby (Deranged), Deathdream was one of the very first films to confront the domestic ravages of the Vietnam War. More than forty years later, it remains one of the most chilling horror films of all time.

    Los Angeles Readers! Win a Pair of Tickets For a Revenge/Descent/Mad Max/Aliens Marathon!

    Published

    on

    Hey Los Angeles readers! We’ve got one helluva giveaway for those of you who are into movie marathons! Starting Saturday, April 28 at 7:30pm over at the Aero Theater, there will be a four-movie marathon that will open with an advance screening of Coralie Fargeat’s Revenge which will end with a Q&A with Fargeat. After that, moviegoers can sit back and get comfortable as they get to see a 35mm print of The Descent followed by a Q&A with director Neil Marshall, the Black & Chrome edition of Mad Max: Fury Road, and finally James Cameron’s Aliens!

    For three of you in the LA area (and only if you’re 17 or older), we’ve got three pairs of tickets to give away for the entire marathon! To enter, all you have to do is fill out the form below!

    Jen (Matilda Lutz) is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend which is suddenly disrupted when his sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. Tension mounts in the house until the situation abruptly––and viciously––intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, Jen survives and reemerges with a relentless, wrathful intent: revenge.

    Written and directed by Coralie Fargeat and starring Matilda Lutz, Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe, and Guillaume Bouchède, Revenge hits theaters and VOD May 11. It will come to the horror streaming service Shudder later this year.
