It’s no secret that we love Scream Factory and, any chance we get, we’ll partner with them for cool stuff. The guys there are rabid fans of horror and we love what they’re doing, so when one of the head honchos there rang me up and asked to particpate in a cool video series, I couldn’t say “no.” The series is part of Scream Factory’s 31 Days of Screams. You can read all about it below!
Further underscoring its position as a premiere horror genre-centric DVD, Blu-ray and digital entertainment provider, SCREAM FACTORY is thrilled to announce “31 DAYS OF SCREAMS”–a month-long Halloween celebration aimed to engage horror fans even further by placing an appropriately-themed holiday emphasis behind its unique library of film classics and its fast-growing social and digital video channels featuring original content created for the launch.
The promotion, beginning on October 1, 2013 and continuing daily till October 31st, will be broken down into three multi-faceted categories: DAILY “BLOODY COUNTDOWN”: Through Scream Factory’s social media outreach, fans will be treated to a different genre topic each day (Slashers, Scream Queens, Zombies, etc.) where they will be asked to discuss their favorite films and topics in the category. The topic will be further highlighted on Scream Factory’s official YouTube channel where viewers can subscribe to view exclusive clips and original content, such as Scream’s “Tastemaker Interviews” covering themes by well-regarded horror film aficionados such as Ryan Turek (Managing Editor, ShockTillYouDrop), Robert Galluzzo (FEARnet, Co-Creator of Icons of Fright, Director of The Psycho Legacy), Sean Clark (Host, Horror’s Hallowed Grounds), Rebekah McKendry (Marketing Director, Fangoria) and Brian Collins (Writer, Badass Digest and Horror Movie a Day).
“YEAR OF FEAR” CONTEST: Fans can enter to win this contest (which was so popular last year that we decided to bring it back). The Grand Prize is one-year worth of Scream Factory releases! The winner will receive one copy of each new brand film released between November 1, 2013 and October 31, 2014. (Blu-ray or DVD format chosen by the winner.) The recipient is also guaranteed to receive all value-ads (such as limited-edition posters) that might be offered. The winner will be announced on Scream Factory’s official Facebook and Twitter pages on Halloween.
