CONTEST: Austin TX Readers: Win Passes for an Early Screening of ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’!

Posted on August 15, 2011 by Deaditor

Hey guys, Britt here. One of my most anticipated horror films this year is the Guillermo del Toro co-written and produced remake of the 70s TV film, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. The terrifying teaser hit last year and since then I’ve been waiting impatiently to see what this master of monsters has up his sleeve this time around.

Do you live in Austin? Would you like to see Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark? Then you’re in luck! Brutal as Hell is co-sponsoring a screening on August 22 and I have passes to share!

How do you get them? So many questions, I know, it’s overwhelming!

Here’s the deal:

  • Send an e-mail to contests@brutalashell.com
  • Tell me the scariest thing that’s ever happened to you in the dark!
  • I will pick 25 winners to receive a pass good for you and one guest.

The contest closes on Thursday, August 18th. I will list the winners here by Friday and contact each of you via e-mail to give you the special pass you’ll need to print out for the screening.

The screening is at the Regal Metropolitan theater at 901 Little Texas Lane on August 22 at 7:30 pm. If you win a pass, please note that you must arrive at the theater an hour before showtime because this is a promotional screening and admittance is first come, first serve.

A little about the film:

Once upon a time, more than a hundred years ago, the only son of the renowned naturalist and artist Emerson Blackwood disappeared into the inky blackness of their basement ash pit. Shortly after, Emerson himself vanished, disappearing down a rabbit hole from whose unfathomable darkness he would never emerge.  Blackwood Manor now has new tenants. Alex Hurst,  girlfriend Kim and his young daughter Sally. As they restore their Gothic mansion’s period interiors, Sally investigates the dark corners of the estate.  Giving in to her curiosity she opens a gateway into a hellish underworld that threatens to take her life and destroy her family. Sally desperately tries to warn the whole house, but no one believes her. Will she make them understand in time, or will they become another chapter in the centuries-long horror story of Blackwood Manor?
