My fellow co-worker over at The Blood Sprayer website is hosting a very fun and engaging contest that is too cool to pass up! The contest is centered around nostalgia of our youths in regards to the horror genre. Nostalgia. We all have it and we all revel in it daily. There is not a day that goes by where I don’t find myself saying, “Back in day”, “Old Skool”, or “Man, I remember when…” I live vicariously through my great memories in my youth and Bill here is giving back to the lucky few of us that share our beloved memories with him. Check out his video below!
Just in case you are in an undesirable place devoid of sound, I’ve graciously borrowed the info from Bill’s awesome blog, Radiation Scarred Reviews, just to reiterate his information.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the word “CONTEST” in the subject line. In the body of the email, tell me about a formative experience that made you a horror fan – the first horror film you can remember seeing as a kid, reminisce about an older relative who showed you movies, talk about monster toys you had, or your first issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland, or Fangoria, or Gorezone, whatever you want to talk about. The theme here is nostalgia, so wax nostalgic!
When I get home from work (around 5:30 EST) on August 20th, 2013 I will put the names of everyone who’s entered the contest into a big jar and draw three names to receive prize-packs.
These prize packs will contain:
- Two randomly-selected VHS tapes
- One or two containers of “Toxic Waste” sour candy
- A fistful of Monster in my Pocket™ rubber figures.
- 2-3 Radiation-Scarred Reviews 1″ buttons
- AND POSSIBLY MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED! The more entries I receive in this contest, the bigger and more ridiculous I will make these prize packs.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
You can only enter once via email. However, if you refer a friend to Radiation-Scarred Reviews and the Nostalgia contest, and they include in their entry “so and so referred me to RSR,” I WILL GIVE BOTH THE REFERRER AND THE REFER-EE AN EXTRA ENTRY! (I know the video says only the referrer would get the extra entry, but I decided this would encourage people to let me know who referred them more) So repost this contest across Facebook, post it on your own blogs, Tweet it, Tumblr it, whatever you want to do. Spread the word, spread Radiation-Scarred Reviews as far and wide as possible, and earn extra chances to win some sweet loot.
This contest is only running until August 20th, 2013 at 5:30 PM Eastern Standard Time, so any entries received after that will not be eligible to win. I will do another video post to announce the winners, who will also be contacted via email.
Once again, that’s an email sent to email@example.com with the word “CONTEST” in the subject line, and a message about something that contributed to you being the horror fan you are today.
So don’t delay and get your entries in to Bill ASAP!
