CONTEST CLOSED! Dread Contest: Have Your Portrait Painted by “Quaid”

In Anthony DiBlasi’s adaptation of Clive Barker’s short story “Dread”, one of the characters is an artist, and in anticipation of Dread‘s DVD release (along with the rest of this year’s Horrorfest entries), one lucky person can have his or her portrait painted by Nicole Balzarini, the real artist behind Quaid (Shaun Evans)’s paintings in the film.

Here are the details straight from the Horrorfest 4 Discussion Forum:

  • The authentic oil painting will be 24″ X 30″ and will be based on a photo submitted to Nicole by the winner.
