Think you have what it takes to scare us in 30 second or less? Then you’ll want to read on for the details of “El Terror,” a collaboration between our buddies at Crypt TV and Fullscreen to find the scariest new voices in horror.
From the Press Release:
Fullscreen and Crypt TV want to unearth the most inventive new voices in the horror genre with “El Terror.” They’ve kicked off a call for 30-second teasers that have the chance to chill and thrill horror fans from around the world on the Fullscreen subscription video-on-demand platform. To participate, creators can visit elterror.com and upload their 30-second or less horror teasers by Thursday, September 1, 2016.
“’El Terror’ is open to anyone with a wild imagination and a smartphone,” said filmmaker Eli Roth. “We’re not looking for perfection; the best idea and execution will win. Crypt TV is the #1 provider of digital scares, and we’re so excited to partner with Fullscreen, which has an amazing platform for filmmakers to tell stories. They care as much as we do about giving the next generation of storytellers a platform to do what they do best. We’re excited to find the scariest series ever made–if you can scare Danny Trejo, Julia Kelly, and myself, you know it’s terrifying!”
An exciting opportunity for horror fans and producers alike, “El Terror” submissions will be vetted by judges who know a thing or two about terrifying entertainment—visionary genre filmmaker and Crypt TV co-founder Eli Roth (CABIN FEVER, HOSTEL, THE GREEN INFERNO), social media sensation Julia Kelly, and inimitable actor Danny Trejo (MACHETE, MACHETE KILLS, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN). Together, they’re seeking surprising, original, and terrifying new horror stories—from psychological thrillers to swamp things, mysterious masked men, and beyond.
“Crypt TV has been a fantastic partner for Fullscreen, and we couldn’t be more aligned with our goal to tell innovative stories that will scare the cases off our viewers’ phones,” said Polly Auritt, VP of scripted development. “Fullscreen aims to be the go-to destination for young creators, and we can’t wait to tap into Crypt TV’s network to help identify the next great horror mastermind.”
Ten finalists, who will be announced later this fall, will win cash prizes to develop their concepts into series, and on Halloween one grand prize winner will be awarded $50,000 to create a series with Crypt TV to premiere exclusively on Fullscreen’s new SVOD platform. Terms and conditions do apply. For more information on “El Terror,” visit elterror.com; and to subscribe to Fullscreen, visit fullscreen.com.
