Nearly 200 entries were submitted to this year’s Scary Film Competition sponsored by Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, which gave moviemakers the chance to have their scariest shorts judged by a panel led by HALLOWEEN director/horror rocker Rob Zombie. Today it was announced that the entries have been whittled down to 10 finalists that have been posted on-line for public voting. Find out the details after the jump.
You can check out the shorts and select your favorite at Halloween Horror Nights’ official website from September 3-17. Only one vote per person may be cast. The winning filmmaker will be rewarded with a premiere showing on Chiller, a posting on Syfy.com, a $1,000 cash prize and a trip for two to the opening night of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Prospective filmmakers were invited to submit films of 90 seconds to three minutes in length; the judging criteria included storytelling skill, originality and the degree of a “good scare.” The winner will be announced on September 17, and in addition to the prizes and broadcast, its creator will be honored in front of celebrities, studio executives and media at the Eyegore Awards ceremony, which will kick off the Halloween Horror Nights event.
