Weekly Comp - Phenomena (Do-Do-Do-Dodo) - 27/02/2011

Happy sunday! :laugh:

Well this week's prize is yet another brilliant Arrow release and an Argento one to boot. Yes, it's the one, the only:




Do-Do-Do-Dodo-Do-Dodo-Do -Dodo-Do Dodo-Dodo-Do-Do-Dodo-Do

And for those who have no idea what I'm on about:

YouTube - Phenomenon

Right, here's all the juicy details for this week's prize:

Label: Arrow Video
Release date: 7th March 2011
Release type: DVD, Blu-ray
Certificate: 18
Pricing: DVD 17.99, Blu-ray 24.99
Genre: Horror
Director: Dario Argento
Stars: Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasence


Master of Italian horror Dario Argento is joined by Jennifer Connelly and Donald Pleasence for a gory 1980s classic in Phenomena, a terrifying slice of fear cinema that mixes extreme violence, pounding metal music, a vicious chimp wielding a scalpel and enough buzzing insects to choke an entire school.

Poor sleepwalking Jennifer Corvino (Connelly) doesn’t fit in at her boarding school and her uncanny ability to control insects isn’t helping her popularity. With the aid of a local entomologist (Pleasence), can she use her psychic insect skills to find the killer who’s leaving her fellow pupils in bloody pieces?

Argento piles on the bloody kills and surreal nightmares as the deafening buzz of a million bugs shatters your eardrums in one of the most demented body-horror movies ever produced.

Phenomena (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (17.99) and Blu-ray (24.99) by Arrow Video on 7th March 2011.

Four panel reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork; two sided fold out poster with new art work; exclusive collector’s booklet featuring brand new writing on Phenomena by Alan Jones, author of Profondo Argento; high definition transfer of the Italian cut of the film; original English* & Italian stereo audio; brand new subtitle translation of the Italian and optional English subtitles of the English audio; “Dario's Monkey Business: The Making of Phenomena” – a 50-minute long documentary featuring interviews with key talent behind the film including director Dario Argento, star Daria Nicolodi, underwater photographer Gianlorenzo Battaglia and more; “Music for Maggots” – an Interview with composer with Claudio Simonetti; “Creepers for Creatures” – Sergio Stivaletti lives Q&A sessions from Dublin and Edinburgh.

But how do you win it? Read on....

So here's how to win!

I was trying to think of something to do for this week, and this idea kinda fitted perfectly.

Muppets -everyone likes them. If you don't then you're an idiot (!). Jennifer Connelly stared in the brilliant muppet film, Labyrinth, and the title Phenomena reminds me of the muppets. So we'll go with that.

Also, Argento's known for his gialli, sooo in this competition you'll have to fill in the gaps - just like a giallo.

So, over the week I will be posting pictures like the ones below. Phrases from horror films. All you need to do is fill in the blank. But not with the correct answer, oh no, with something that is crazy and just plain hillarious. Similar to the segment they do on Have I Got News For You.

Each time I add a new phrase - probably more than once a day - I'll also pick the funniest entry from the previous one and pop it into a hat (maybe more than one entry, depending). Then whoever has been picked over the week will be jumbled up in the hat and three names will be randomly selected next sunday.


So, here's the first one...

Get joking!

Good luck!

Kyle :cool:
