MAMA Scared Stiff Contest

Thu Dec 6, 2012, 5:00 PM
                    

Guillermo del Toro presents MAMA, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.

Now, the MAMA filmmakers in conjunction with deviantART invite you to bring your scariest childhood memory to life! Is it under the bed? Or perhaps lurking in the closet, attic or basement? Use your imagination and create a visual depiction of your most frightening apparition.

MAMA filmmakers Andy & Barbara Muschietti and Guillermo del Toro will be judging your ability to create your very own childhood terror! Enter now! If you dare...

Watch the trailer for "MAMA" above, and use it to bring into your imagination a looming scary memory from your childhood.

Using the medium of your choice depict the most frightening image from your childhood coming out from underneath a bed, from a closet, an attic or a basement. The "image" can be a person, poltergeist, monster, animal or thing whether animate or inanimate.

I am so excited for this contest. What a huge honor all the winners will have! Guillermo del Toro... Wow. That is so cool.

My entry was hastily put together. Sent in 10 minutes before the deadline. lol!
I wish I had had more time, but that's what you get when you leave deviantart and come back months later.

GOOD LUCK ALL! I can't wait to see the winners! I love horror!
