You've heard Son of Celluloid and every other horror blogger, reporter and newssite out there worth it's salt rave about the best American flick of last year, Dear God No! The bikers vs. bigfoot indie phenomenon is proving to be a force to be reckoned with on the festival circuit, just picked up international distribution, and will be invading the US on DVD soon. If you haven't seen this flick, you're missing out. You're in luck too, because there's a screening at Days of the Dead, Atlanta's first horror convention, coming up March 9, 10, and 11. Go HERE for all the info.
Anyway, director James Bickert has hooked me up with some killer prizes to give away to my Cellmates. These are not just any prizes, these are actual props from the movie. As much as I want to keep these for myself, I'm giving you a chance to win them as my way of saying thank you for reading Son of Celluloid and supporting independent horror. Here's what we've got...
If you read my interview with Bickert (HERE) ...what am I talking about? OF COURSE you read it. In that case you remember us talking about the hilarious homages to his favorite filmmakers throughout the film. Well, you can now own some of them. In the "bait shop scene," Quint's Hushpuppy mix, Jess Franc-O's, and Uncle Bruno's Country Style Peas & A.I.D.S. can be seen stocking the shelves.
Later, Dr. Marco's daughter brings the Impalers wine spiked with...well, you'll have to see the flick to see what wicked concoction she serves. All you need to know is that when you want to serve the bikers murdering and raping your family the very best, you serve deOssario. 1918 to be exact. A great vintage. Well, here's one of the bottles that appeared in the flick. Don't worry, it's empty. No bigfoot juice. Just "La noche del terror" goodness.
In addition to one of each of these kick ass rare collectibles, the winner will also receive a copy of the insanely awesome poster featuring art by the insanely awesome Tom Hodge. That's it at the top of the post. That pic is the censored version, the poster I send out will be the original nipple baring version. It will even be autographed by the director. If I'm feeling generous, I might pick a couple of runners up to give posters to. So, by this point you're thinking "Holy crap! What do I have to do to win this awesome prize pack?" Well, it's pretty easy. There are three steps...
