UPDATE: WINNERS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN. Thanks to everyone who played — there were some fantastic answers! All for simply clicking on the “31 in 31” tab at the top of the home page. 😉
Time to get spooky, y’all. It’s the remake of the classic (and brilliant) Poltergeist, and it’s bringing the clowns to us all. Why’d it have to be clowns? They’re evil. It is known.
Here’s the synopsis, in case you’re wondering:
Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
Will this be a shot-for-shot like the Psycho remake, or will it go off on its own, ala 2005’s House of Wax? Only one way to find out, and I’ma give you a chance to make that decision early. I’ve got PDF’s, and I’m gonna make it rain y’all! Though hopefully not like it did in Poltergeist. And because we’re not dealing with a simple link, I’m going trivia crazy again…
What: ADMIT TWO passes (PDFs) for the Baltimore area screening of Poltergeist!
Where: AMC White Marsh.

How: Send me an e-mail with the subject line “WHY’D IT HAVE TO BE CLOWNS?” and answer me this —
What, out of the movies I’ve covered in my “31 in 31” series, would you watch after coming home from the Poltergeist screening?
This time, there’s no wrong answer from the list of films I’ve reviewed for my yearly October throwdown. Tell me which film, and why…and I’ll choose 30 folks! (NOTE: entering more than once does not get you more chances. I pitch out duplicates in order to give everyone an equal shot.) I’ll pick winners Monday May 4th, and as usual I’ll update this post to let folks know when all the winners have been chosen.
REMEMBER: seating for screenings are first-come, first served and are not guaranteed. So get there early to make sure you get a seat.
May the Fourth be with you!
