Kentucky Fried Horror Motion Picture Show Call for Entries

By Anne Laszlo Howard

Horror film Kentucky Fried Horror Show Announces Call for Entries for the “A Day of Greasy Horror” contest!

Deadest Contestant to Win Speaking Part and Trip for Two to the Premiere.

Los Angeles, CA (rushprnews) November 2, 2007-- Kentucky Fried Horror Show, the much anticipated motion picture that stars Scarlett Pomers, Brad Dourif, and Playboy model Rachael Robbins, set for shooting spring of 08’, already has such a massive 500,000 and growing fan base, that the producers are thanking their fans with a death wish contest. With a Shoreline Entertainment distribution deal in place, the film is sure to reach a worldwide audience.

Currently the filmmakers have more than 125,000 submissions from people all over the world who want a chance to fake their death before the cameras. The director, C.L. Gregory, says, “It seems that the desire for pain and death is not at all dead. But also, fans want to have fun expressing their darkest sides.”

The winning contestant will be rewarded a speaking part in the film, but to win, he/she must first die; or at the very least, demonstrate a gory imagination. The contest has also drawn its share of critics who believe the filmmakers are glorifying violence, since participants must write a short paragraph on how they would kill someone or personally die, in detail.

The bloodier and gorier they can kill or die, the better the odds of winning are for the contestants. Executive Producer Rik Walters states, “This is a worldwide contest to thank the fans of Kentucky Fried Horror Show and for those who are passionate about horror films.”

The contest, which began September 25,h 2007 at midnight, seeks to capture what many independent films are fighting for today– the imagination of the public and consumer spending. In a market that has become oversaturated with horror films, not to mention the lackluster past summer at the box office for the horror genre, the producers of the Kentucky Fried Horror Show are betting they can change the tide with their latest endeavor/  And, judging by the sheer numbers, they are already doing just that.

More than 500,000 Europeans have already signed online petitions to premiere the movie in the U.K. and, by the current count, the numbers are only rising for this film that has yet to shoot a single frame.

In a time where some are calling for congressional intervention against the growing number of horror films depicting violence, the makers of Kentucky Fried Horror are hoping that horror fans will jump on board and be their darkest when it comes to their expressing their violent fantasies.

The contest is simple:

One Grand prize winner will land a speaking part in the film, attend the premiere with their family and receive a cast-signed copy of the script!

To win the prize, contestants must write a short paragraph of death and mutilation and send pictures of the reenacted scene. Five lucky winners will be allowed to be on set for filming and meeting the cast of the film. They will meet Director and Writer, C. L. Gregory, who will give them each a signed copy of the script.

The winners, along with a guardian or parent (if under 18), will travel to Kentucky for the ultimate Horror fan’s dream holiday. The grand prize includes return economy air fare for two from the nearest international airport to the winner’s home, 2-night accommodations, airport and hotel transfers and 2 passes each to the Kentucky Fried Horror Show set (approximate value $5000 U.S.)

The online contest began Midnight, September 25th, 2007 and will close on December 31st, 2007 at 11:59pm (Contest Period) and the winner will be announced on January 13th, 2008.
