Shock Festival Winner: Ryan Degenstein (click for larger image)The first winner of our exclusive Shock Festival contest has been picked, and his film has been immortalized by the most badass poster artist in the last ten years, Stephen Romano! Read more to see if your idea made the cut!

This week’s winner: Ryan Degenstein for VIC VENGEANCE!

Here’s a brief excerpt from Ryan’s synopsis:

“Victor Phillips’ family was killed by a gang in a shoot-out. 5 years later he is Vic Vengeance, killer for hire, ready to clean up the streets. The movie is [shot] entirely [in] Vic’s P.O.V.; we never see his face.”

Why did Vic make the cut? “I’ve been wanting to do a Death Wish 2 riff this whole project, and here’s my chance,” says Romano. “This one is dedicated to Charles Bronson!”

Ryan’s poster will be included in the Shock Festival book (pre-order it here) when it hits this October. Will yours be? Check back next Monday. You can enter as many times as you want so KEEP THOSE ENTRIES COMING!
