I am conscious of the fact that I have not been writing as much as I would like lately and also that I have not had the chance to engage with the great writing that many of you do through commenting on your work. I’ve also slipped further behind than usual on replying to comments on this site.
All of this is due to a range of lame ‘life’ reasons that I won’t bore you with here. But I really love to have comments from anyone on anything I write. So thanks to Madman Films, I thought I would run a little comp on the site. For exactly one week from when this post goes up, any comment on the site (no matter how rubbish) will get one entry in the draw to win two DVDs. The films up for grabs are the horror flick Hush (2009) and the Aussie, based on a true story film The Outlaw Michael Howe (2013). Both of these are from Madman.
This goes for any article on the site. So if you feel the need to go back through my archives and drop crappy (or incredible) comments on a bunch of articles, go for it. There’s no limit to the number of comments. Search for your favourite director, 1001, Longneck of Melbourne Bitter or Schooner of Tooheys New. Search for whatever your heart desires and comment away.
A couple of ways to boost your entries. Any comments on the SUFF 2014 reviews, of which there will be anywhere up to 7 this week, are worth two entries. And I am trying something slightly different with the formatting toward the end of the article, just to separate the verdict or conclusion of the review from the rest of it. Tis only a minor change, but give me your feedback (positive, negative and couldn’t care less are all acceptable) to the slight change and you will get double entries for that comment too.
If you don’t usually comment on here, that is totally cool. As long as you are not a spambot you are more than welcome. Just remember to check back after a week or so, cause if I don’t have an email address for you and you happen to win, I will comment in reply to one of yours. As always, entries are open worldwide.
Just a quick update on the prize for A Fortnight of Terror. Thus far I have just been advertising the prize as an unnamed, but awesome, horror DVD from Madman Entertainment.
Well I finally have the details, and awesomely, it is not one but two films courtesy of Madman. Up for grabs are copies of Hell (2011) and Hush (2009) All the details of how to amass some entries can be found here, so be sure to get involved.
I will aim to get reviews of both of these films up over the next couple of days. But for now, here are a couple of trailers to whet your appetite.
