Starz's Fear Fest and Blogcritics Magazine help make Halloween suck!

A Starz Fear Fest Bloodsucking Cinema Giveaway!

Halloween is scary, I'm not going to lie to you, I myself do not watch slasher flicks.  I can't.  I just can't.  I wish I could.  They interest me, they really do.  But, whenever I sit down to watch one I end up scaring bejesus out of myself.  I do.  I watch one good slasher flick and I don't sleep for a week.  I know, I am a wuss.  I've learned to live with it and so should you.

Now, don't get me wrong, I do like some scary movies, just not the slasher stuff.  Zombie flicks are totally my thing.  Give me a good zombie flick, some living dead action, and I'm in heaven… or maybe hell… wherever it is that I am, I quite enjoy being there.

Now, Starz, in October has this habit of airing what they refer to as "Fear Fest."  They put on, as Halloween happens to fall at the end of October, scary movie after scary movie after scary movie, none of which are Scary Movie, Scary Movie 2, Scary Movie 3, or Scary Movie 4.  I have to assume that this is because none of those movies are actually scary, even though they have "scary" in the title.  For this Fear Fest, Starz is even premiering a brand new documentary all about vampire movies (those I like), it's entitled Bloodsucking Cinema, and will be premiering October 26 at 8pm et/pt (more on that show below).

I am quite pleased to say the we have done it again.  That's right, in this incredibly scary Blogcritics Magazine sponsored contest (with a little help from our friends), we're giving stuff away!  The next logical question for you to ask is what, precisely, is going to be given away.  Well, we are going to give out 3 prize packs, all of which feature (hold on to your hats here, because you are not going to believe the awesomeness):

31 Days of Heart-Pounding Horror Films

Featuring The Premiere of

Exclusively on STARZ, October 26, 2007 at 8pm et/pt

Perhaps the most enduring film genre of all time, vampire films continue to haunt us on the big screen. Why are we fascinated with the myth of these immortal souls? Could it be the living forever part, or perhaps the fact that they have an unearthly sexual attraction to both males and females? Whatever it is, audiences around the world can't seem to get enough of them. Bloodsucking Cinema, premiering on Starz, October 26 at 8:00 PM explores the origins and "birth" of the vampire, its evolution and entry into cinema's storytelling lexicon and Hollywood's undying interest in the theme.
