In the MAMA Scared Stiff Contest, we challenged you to channel your most frightening childhood memory, and the entries were truly terrifying!    

These 25 hair-raising deviations sent a chill down our judges' spines, and have been chosen as the Semi-Finalists. It's now up to the true visionaries of horror, MAMA filmmakers Andy & Barbara Muschietti and Guillermo del Toro, to decide on the top 3 winners, who will receive their share of $10,000 USD, as well as Points, deviantART Gear, and Premium Memberships!

The remaining 22 Semi-Finalists will receive:

  :bulletblack: 2,000 deviantART Points

  :bulletblack: Three-Month Premium Membership to deviantART

Congratulations to all!

What? My V of Doom artwork isn't here?
Mann just saw the movie, the story was pretty good. My entries, Soultaker, Late hours & the keeper designs has some of those elements. What a coincidence . The ethereal effects and hair flowing is so similar to my images. :)

MOST of these are great, however I feel some of these do not deserve to be on here due to lack of composition/ technical skill. Oh well. I feel there were alot more better ones that should have been in those places. Can't wait to see who wins!
