While they’ve already been killing one of our reviewers, The Foywonder, for years now, we have to admit The Asylum has grown in leaps and bounds in terms of the quality of their flicks. With the October 5th theatrical release of #HoldYourBreath looming they’re now turning their attention to you!
From the Press Release
Independent production and distribution studio The Asylum announced today a Midnight Madness Twitter Contest that kicks off tonight and runs twelve nights through the morning of October 7, 2012. The contest, which celebrates the company’s first theatrical film, #HOLDYOURBREATH, will feature daily prizes of movie tickets and DVDs, with a grand prize of a non-speaking role in an upcoming Asylum film. And that can only mean one thing – falling victim to one of the studio’s legendary monsters, disasters or other mayhem.
Based on the urban legend that you can breathe in evil spirits when passing cemeteries, #HOLDYOURBREATH follows seven friends embarking on a weekend camping trip who pass a run-down cemetery and find themselves arguing about the legitimacy of the urban myth. When one friend refuses to hold his breath while passing by, he finds himself the unwitting host to a notorious serial killer who jumps from body to body in order to pick off each of the friends one-by-one. The film stars Katrina Bowden (TV’s “30 Rock”, American Reunion, Piranha 3DD), and Randy Wayne (TV’s “True Blood” and “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”).
Each night for the next twelve nights, between 8:30pm – 3:30am Pacific / 11:30pm – 6:30am Eastern, visit www.twitter.com and tweet your most interesting, frightening or surprising stories or comments regarding graveyards, ghosts, superstitions, possessions and hauntings. Include the hashtag #HoldYourBreath in your tweet, and you’ll be entered to win. The grand prize includes travel and lodging to the set of an upcoming Asylum film, where the winner will be, well, mutilated.
The Asylum, the studio behind such Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, Zombie Apocalypse, Paranormal Entity and Two-Headed Shark Attack is already planning their next victim’s demise! Be sure to enter now.
