View Full Version : EXPLOITATION SANTA - BIGGER BADDER AND UNCUT!

All right everyone - here it is. This is the BIG one.

Adjusted for inflation, my new prize amount is a big, fat-ass $50!

What does that mean? Maybe that pricey Jean Rollin box set you had your eye on but said "Damn, I want it, but thats too rich for my blood"? Well, thats why I'm here - to give you guys the ability to LIVE your dreams, right?

Oh yeah - but you have to work for it.

So here's the contest. This one will test both your cleverness and writing skills:

Write a tag line of only ONE sentence to sell a movie. The movie MUST be one that already exists, and the line must be one that was NEVER used to sell that film. In other words you are creating a tag line that all of us should say "Man, they SHOULDA used that". And no cheating - so don't try using a line that was used for a regional campaign or anything like that and think I won't figure it out.

Anyone who doesn't know what a "tag ine" is, its that little blurb you usually see on the bottom of the ad.

EXAMPLE:

Who Will Survive And What Will Be Left Of Them? for the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE.

I realize this is a pretty hard contest because it requires that you boil something clever down to one sentence, but thats why there is $50 at stake here folks.

BOILERPLATE:

Contest open to all registered dvdmaniacs. Any lurkers out there? Now, my friends, would be a good time to come out of the shadows, no? :D

Winner picked by registered maniacs via a vote. This time I will be asking people to vote in a voting thread, because I don't want to have to do 2 or 3 separate polls. That means that your vote will not be "blind", but I think we are all adults here, so I'm counting on you guys to keep it civil. Contest runs one week, starting now. That means it will end at 2am, NYC time next Wednesday, May 24th.

You can vote for yourself, contest is open to all mods and people involved with dvdmaniacs on any business level. Only one entry per maniac, but you can ask any questions about the contest in this thread or PM me. Think long and hard about your actual entry - because you get exactly ONE shot. When posting your contest entry, please put OFFICIAL ENTRY at the top of your post, name the movie, and under that, the tag line.

In the event of a tie there will be a 48 hour second vote.

The $50 is in the form of a dvd (or more than one as long as it stays $50 or under) at Exploited Cinema. I like giving Tony the business, and he has a multi-code shop, so this makes our non-USA members able to have a shot in the contest. I'll pick up all associated shipping and insurance costs of course.

Finally, here's an example of correct contest entry form:


OFFICIAL ENTRY.

Film: Blood Feast
Tagline: "Nothing So Appalling In The Annals Of Horror!"

This is a real tag line from BLOOD FEAST, but it shows the form.

Good luck everyone.

Its actually pretty clever William. But let this be a lesson to all of you on the dangers of drunken posting!

I'd love to cut you some slack, but sadly this is one where I just have to stick to the rules Joe Friday-style.

And anyway, you'll get something from me at the airport, so don't feel too bad. :D

No problem David. As a matter of a fact this is a very good example of being creative. Many films were sold with slightly "deceptive" tag lines designed to get asses in seats. Remember I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE with the "burned" line?

Anyway, some good stuff here so far. Keep 'em coming, and remember you have until nesxt Wednesday, 2am.
