Contest: Win a Blu-ray copy of Arrow Video's Bloody Birthday


Birthday, bloody birthday

You’ll have a happy birthday with this contest: Win a Blu-ray copy of Arrow Video’s Bloody Birthday.

It’s new release Tuesday, which means we’re continuing our streak of giving away great Blu-rays from our friends at MVD Entertainment. Today’s release is another great cult horror film from video powerhouse Arrow Video.

It’ll be a happy one, but also a bloody one. Come win Bloody Birthday.

These are always ridiculous, and I love them for it. Just read this description:

The Bad Seed meets Halloween in this deliciously twisted early 80s slasher offering directed by Ed Hunt (The Brain) and starring the always loveable Lori Lethin (Return to Horror High, The Prey). Debbie, Curtis, and Steven may seem cute as buttons. But their angelic facade conceals the wicked, murderous streak given to them having all been born under the same solar eclipse. With the grown-ups around them blissfully unaware of their little darlings’ homicidal tendencies, the evil brats begin to bump off the adults one-by-one. By gun. By arrow. By cake. Bye-bye! Mixing the killer-kid subgenre with elements of the then-booming slice-and-dice movie, 1981’s Bloody Birthday shocks and appalls with its scenes of young children shooting, strangling, and bludgeoning their way through the local population. They sure don’t (and can’t!) make ’em like this anymore.

Killer kids? I mean, hell, IT showed poor Georgie die like 13 times and I thought that was bad enough. When the kids are the ones doing all the killing? Sign me up.

To win your copy, comment below telling us how you’d knock off adults as a stupid, evil, possessed little kid. I’d definitely go with the slow burn and just be alive and normal for all 18 years of adolescence. By the time the emotional and financial stress of having to deal with a little shithead like me hits, my parents will be basically dead on the inside. That’s way more rewarding than some stupid pickaxe or something.

We have two Blu-rays to give away. Winners will be drawn on Monday, December 24. You must have a United States mailing address to win. And make sure you comment using a Dtoid-generated Disqus account, and that your Dtoid profile is up to date with your current email address.

Bloody Birthday is available now from MVD Entertainment. Head over to Flixist for more chances to win.
