A pair of upcoming genre features—Anchor Bay’s I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE remake (pictured) and the indie vampire flick RENFIELD THE UNDEAD—are giving fans and filmmakers a chance to get involved. Find out how after the jump.
Anchor Bay and Texas Frightmare Weekend have announced a trailer contest tying in with I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE’s Dallas premiere on September 30 at 8 p.m. at the city’s Angelika Film Center. Filmmakers are being invited to submit trailers capturing the exploitation-cinema vibe, and the top three selected will play before I SPIT at the premiere. The trailers must be original, but otherwise anything goes: “We’re looking for submissions that are over the top, scary, wild, absurd and freaked out,” according to the Texas Frightmare website, where the chosen previews will be posted. “Live action, animated, stop-motion, claymation…it doesn’t matter as we’ll consider everything submitted.” Winners will additionally receive an I SPIT/Texas Frightmare prize pack. Submissions can be sent to Texas Frightmare Weekend, PO Box 384, Grapevine, TX 76099 and must be received no later than September 24; they must be in DVD format, ready for presentation in NTSC video. Questions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out Fango #297, on sale this month, for a feature story on I SPIT, which opens nationwide October 8; you can see its official site here.
Meanwhile, the producers of RENFIELD THE UNDEAD, which we last covered here, are offering fans the chance to vote on the poster design that will be used to market the movie. Five different variations (including the one seen here) are up for consideration at RENFIELD’s official website; click on that link to see the different variations and choose your favorite!
