Also, I have a great announcement! As a kind of added bonus to the aforementioned awards that I will be giving out, I am pleased to announce that the first place winner will receive a prize!

The prize will be 3 Roger Corman titles of their choice! There are a couple of rules, though:

1) The film has to be in print.
2) The film has to be available on DVD.
3) Each film can not cost more than $20.

So we're looking at potentially $60 worth of prizes!

Anyhow, please continue to work on your articles and feel free to put up my blogathon banner on your respective sites! I'll be back in another week for another blogathon update!

Also, I will be posting my next blog article on Monday.

  4. Rana, I thought that you wanted to change your movie to "It Conquered the World."

    Do you still want to make that change or are you sticking with "The Masque of the Red Death?"

  5. Thanks Page,

    I'll put you down for the 18th.

  6. I'm sticking because the other one could not be found.

  7. Hi, Nathanael. Why don't you put me down for the 18th? If there are any problems, I'm willing to switch around. I'm glad the blogathon seems to be going smoothly.

  8. @Rana,
    Did you try Youtube ? I've noticed quite a few of Corman's films on there...

    @Nathanael
    Your blogathon seems to be going very well!

    I'll post the 19th if that's ok.

  10. @Jack

    Hey man, it wouldn't be anywhere near as popular if you hadn't advertised it on your site!

  13. Hi Nathaniel! The 17th is best for me, and my first choice, but I could also do the 18th if it would help even things out. Can't wait! And now 3 Corman movies for the winner! Wow, the keyboards will be hot for THAT prize!

  18. Alright gang, we're halfway there!

    Only ten more people need to designate their date and provide a working link to their blog!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I finally decided -- Friday the 17th. The blog URL is

    http://www.shebloggedbynight.com

    Do we put the entry up and then email you the link on our day?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Because of my intense procrastination powers, I have chosen the 19th as my post date. And of course, the blogURL is:

  21. @Ivan

    Of course, of course! Just had to be technical.

    1. Well, the film is in the public domain, so you can watch it for free just about anywhere.
