The Dungeon’s Two Year Anniversary Goretacular Criterion Contest!

Today marks the Dungeon’s two year anniversary! The positive comments and support from readers and my fellow bloggers is what has kept this blog going! To thank you, I’m giving away two brand-spanking new kick-ass Criterion Blu-Ray DVD’s of DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITIONS of VIDEODROME and REPULSION. Gorgeous transfers and amazing supplements await you!

The rules are simple. There are two discs and two winners. No one can win both discs. Just leave your name/alias and the film you want in my sidebar under the banner “The Dungeon’s Two Year Anniversary Goretacular Criterion Contest!”

Example:
Goregirlfan – Repulsion

I will simply write the names on a piece of paper, put ’em in a hat and draw.

Once you add your name/alias you are automatically entered once, but there is a way to gain extra entries. Leaving a comment on anything I post between Feb. 1 and Feb. 25th will gain you an extra entry (you get one entry per post even if you leave multiple comments on one post). “Cool!” and “Nice Post!” won’t cut it, your comment must be at least one full sentence.

The contest runs from Tuesday, February 1st to Friday February 25th (ending midnight pacific standard time). The contest winners will be announced on Monday, February 28th.

All readers and fellow bloggers are eligible.

You will be leaving your email when you enter your name/alias for the contest which is how I will contact you. Your name/alias will also be posted on the site along with the amount of entries if you are one of the two winners of the DVD’s. Email and home addresses of course will be kept confidential.

These discs came to me directly from Criterion and are brand new and sealed.
