Join the Second Annual Cinefessions Summer Scream Challenge

moviesFor the entire month of June, Cinefessions is holding a horror movie contest where everyone wins! It is basically all about watching as much horror / sci-fi movies as you possibly can during the entire month and there are several extra challenges available to gather more points.

But why read more about it on my site, head over to this page on Cinefessions to get a full overview about the contest and how to enter. So far there is (including me) ten people who have signed up for it and I’m sure it will be a fun thing to participate in. And after all, we all watch horror movies daily anyways right?

 

I’m gonna be using this page to track the films I see and everything that will be watched will of course also end up being reviewed for my site in the future. Remember to use the hashtag #CSSC2 on Twitter to add to the fun discussion that is surely to be had while this contest is going on.
