It’s that time again when we dish out free heart palpitations prizes to our wonderful readers, and this time it’s quite a bundle of fear you could win! With the upcoming re-imagining of the classic 1982 horror flick Poltergeist just around the corner, the folks at Times Media Films have been gracious enough to offer three bundles of horror DVD’s to whet your appetite – no, not a “Trevor wet his pants again” whet, the other one!

The new Poltergeist will be coming to theatres in South Africa on 29 May and this time the fear has gone 3D! The updated version offers a new and far more visual take on the original film, which I am sure some of the newer, younger crowd hasn’t seen yet. So what’s it about then? Have a read and watch the trailer. More on the competition after the jump:

Legendary film-maker Sam Raimi and director Gil Kenan reimagine and contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is invaded by angry spirits. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and take the youngest daughter, the family must come together to rescue her.

So, what’s the prize?! Okay, okay, calm down already. Three lucky readers can win a hamper of three recent horror movies and the awesome first season of Penny Dreadful (want to know why you should read it, have a look here!)

Here’s what’s in the hamper:

So that’s the rather terrifying Annabelle, a movie that many of you enjoyed, Jessabelle had its momentsOpen Grave with the talented Sharlto Copley and season one of Penny Dreadful, one of my favourite new series. Not a bad hamper!

What do you need to do in order to win? Below are three Youtube videos that show different horror frights (drill time, head turn and stairs). Simply head over to our entry page HERE, chose which one freaked you out more from the drop down menu and leave your details. Only a VALID email address will be accepted. This competition is available to those residing in South Africa only.

So, which one scares you more?!

Drill time!

Head turn


Eish, that’s some seriously bad mojo happening there! We’ll let you know on 29 May – which is the release day for Poltergeist  – who has won. Good luck!

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
