Hopefully by now you've been fortunate enough to see Michael Dougherty's Trick 'r Treat (2007). Even I, being the horror movie freak I am, hadn't heard of it until last year. I'm not sure if it's because of advertising or if it was just a limited release DVD. Doesn't matter. I've seen it now and can say for sure that it's a very fun, very creepy ride.
Five interwoven stories that occur on the same block, on the same night. A couple finds what happens when they blow a jack o' lantern out before midnight, a high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer, a college virgin might have met the right guy for her, a group of mean teens play a prank that they take too far, and a hermit is visited by a special trick or treater.
So, here's the challenge.... Submit your creepiest, scariest Halloween photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. We're looking for zombies, slashers, witches or warlocks... any photo that is YOURS. Please do not submit photos found online as they will not be considered at all. The winning photo will be chosen October 15, 2010 so that gives you plenty of time to get them in. The winner will receive a Trick 'r Treat DVD just in time for Halloween. The contest is open to any and everyone BUT keep in mind that the DVD is in standard US format.
