Fangoria Blood Drive II

Aspiring horror filmmakers around the nation again have the opportunity to compete for the title of Palm d'Gore in the second Fangoria Blood Drive contest. Koch Vision and the Starlog Group, publisher of Fangoria Magazine, joined forces last fall to invite filmmakers to submit original short-form genre films. This year, all ages and levels of expertise are again invited to enter, beginning Halloween, October 31st at 12 a.m. Submissions will be accepted until midnight of the second scariest night of the year, April 15, 2005. The rules, entry form and information are available at the Fangoria Blood Drive II website or via regular mail by sending a self-addressed stamped envelope to Fangoria Blood Drive II, P.O. Box 1290, Post Washington, NY 11050. Winners will be announced Friday the 13th of May, 2005.

"The first volume turned out better-and sold better!-than we ever expected. The level of ingenuity and craftsmanship exhibited by Fango's fan base was impressive. Many winners, encouraged by our support, have graduated to more ambitious works. With a longer submission deadline, we expect the quality of VOLUME 2's winners to be even stronger," says Tony Timpone, FANGORIA editor and BLOOD DRIVE co-creator (with Tim Hinsley).

Last year's Fangoria Blood Drive was a phenomenal success of hair-raising films. Koch Vision showcased the winners in a DVD release, Fangoria Blood Drive: America's Best Short Horror Films, hosted by famed musician Rob Zombie. The contest is based on originality, creativity, technical quality, story content and commerciality in the horror genre. Films must be less than 13 minutes to qualify.
