Remember your prom? I do. Hell, to the right you can even check out a picture from mine. We didn’t have any slashers, but there was a good chance someone was going to get shot. Ah, the good old days.
Anyway … with the upcoming Prom Night remake getting ready to hit theatres on April 11th, Sony Screen Gems and UGO are giving you a chance to take part in the fun by offering up a contest with $1,000 in spending money for an all-expense paid trip for two to Los Angeles and a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with a top film executive at Sony Screen Gems.” And all you have to do is make a short horror film!
