3 Dead Girls, New DVD by Christopher Alan Broadstone – Giveaway!

Three Dead Girls DVD

I never have and am likely never going to make a dime off of this site, which means any advertising seen on here is advertising I’ve decided to up entirely because I felt it deserved attention.  Such is the case with the 3 Dead Girls image now brutally gracing every page.

Nearly a year ago I got an email from Christopher Alan Broadstone asking if I’d like to take a look at his three short films (Scream For Me, My Skin!, Human No More) and debut novel, Puzzleman.  Normally when I’m sent something to review – which, for the record, is not that often these days – smart money says it is probably lacking inspiration.  If it was truly something good, no one involved with it would be asking me to look, rather I’d already be searching for it of my own accord having heard about it else where.  If they are worthy enough, the small time rarely stay small time for long.  Unfortunately that isn’t always the case.

I wanted to check out what Broadstone was up to recently, which is when I came across this newly released DVD containing all 3 of his short films.  Professionalism like that which Broadstone casually bleeds is a rarity for this narrow circuit, considerably distancing itself from typical horror fan home brew.  I’d say the set was worth a purchase for My Skin! alone, but it further appears that Black Cab Productions went all out, stacking the disc with trailers, interviews, behind-the-scenes featurettes and 11 commentary tracks to boot (including talkies for each short from some of Broadstones own critics).  There are studio shows with millions in backing that don’t even include half that bonus material!

It’ll cost you $16.99 for just the DVD, but I’d push you to the $21.99 that’ll get you 3 Dead Girls plus the trade paperback of Puzzleman (and if still in stock, a free copy of The Judas Engine CD).  You get to directly support some seriously ambitious independent talent in exchange for a very unique blend of darkness.  Think of it as giving to a horror charity, but instead of just a warm fuzzy feeling you also get something fucked in the head.

To celebrate the release I’ll be giving away a copy of both.  Well, not so much that I will be personally giving it away, as I’ll buy a copy and have it shipped to the winner.  All you have to do to win is send me an email by July 12th with ’3 Dead Girls’ in the subject line and your name/address in the body.  The only caveat is if I know you in person, you’re ineligible.  Which means I’ve just eliminated half the site’s visitors, so good luck to the remaining three and a half people!

    If it ended today, you definitely would.

    You’re also probably one of the few people who read the whole thing (or at least the last paragraph) to learn I was actually going to give one away.

    yes, that was very tricky of you

    more reputable sites would have titled the entry “contest” or “give-away”

    Fuck you Peter. I want a shot at the prize! You’re doing this because no one gave you the $5 you asked for at your cook out aren’t you?!

    Don’t think for a second I’m not coming after each and every one of you bums. I’ll slash a tire every day if I have to. I ain’t afraid to choke a bitch!

    I’m pulling for Brian to win.

    I like my odds here. Whether or not I’ll actually get around to the painstaking task of writing an email (with a subject, no less!) remains to be seen.

    John, thank you for your support. BUT – please be careful – if too many of Peter’s “real life” friends support me it may make me too close to Peter therefore disqualifying me.

    Oh, and Chris has no shot whatsoever.

    No worries, Brian. I’ve never met the man either. You’re a shoe-in.

    i got too caught up in all this CLOVERFIELD madness the last couple days (not to mention trying to tread water at work) to make my usual daily site visits.

    so i missed out on all this.

    expect my email shortly.

    unfortunately i’m unable to enter the contest.

    i’m moving out of my place this weekend and then house-sitting for a guy who is moving in a couple weeks… i myself am leaving the state at the end of the month.

    no address for me.
