Topic: The Festival of Souls 2 [CLOSED]
Hello and welcome to the Festival of Souls 2! The successor to the previously acclaimed Horror contest. Last year we garnered almost 30 entries, and we're hoping to improve on that again this year! We're also hoping to see some really scary entries! That's right, the more creepy the better! Aim to make the judges pee in their pants with fear!
The first of these two theme this year is… *Drumroll*… SUSPENSE! That means you need to build up tension in your film. Make us quake in fear as the killer slowly approaches the unsuspecting victim, armed with a bloody axe…
The second of our two themes is… SUPERNATURAL! Show us monsters, beasts, telepathy killers, possessed werewolves, anything that's 'supernatural'! Although let me just say that we're not looking for Sci-Fi aliens and the sort, as this is a horror contest.
Now for the PRIZES!
So after some contact the new contest sponsors is the fabulous new store - BrickWarriors! The great new store sells a whole range of parts and characters ideal for making your films and collections that bit more unique!
Visit their store here and like them on facebook here. Here are the categories and what you can win!

All entries must be submitted by the UPDATE! 31st of October 2011, and can be entered at any time you feel you want to release it. I would recommend not showing it publicly until at least October 20th if you want to avoid others copying you. Please display them on either YouTube, DailyMotion, or Vimeo. Send all entries to me via PM or post them as a response the official video on YouTube.
The judges are as follows:

If you wish to support this contest it'd be great if you would pass it on by giving links, making promotional videos, etc. Also, if you're very kind and generous and have a few extra bob in your back pocket, you could donate to the contest, but that is optional.
I hope to see some great entries! Feel free to ask anything you like, and I'll look forward to receiving the entries (Remember to visit the update thread in the Production forum to post pics of your film, and chat about the competition.)!
