Did you miss our initial post on regarding the Deadite Of The Day contest? If not – don’t worry. We’re accepting submissions up until April 3rd at deadite@bloody-disgusting.com (head inside for the full list of rules)! Winners will be announced daily from March 25th – April 5th (weekends excluded). Submissions will be open the whole time, so if you see something you think you can top… TOP IT!

Today’s winner is Theodore Holmstead-Scott, who is only 15 years old. He runs The House Of Marrow blog and has made a cool short, The Woods Themselves, expressly for this contest. In his own words, “I first saw the Evil Dead films around this time last year and immediately fell in love with them. When I saw the contest post on your site I immediately set to work. I built the prop (an ancient victim of the ‘angry molesting trees’) over the last week and filmed it in the woods on the weekend – it was pretty exhausting, but absolutely worth it. ‘The Evil Dead’ is one of my most favorite films, and also one that inspired me to get into filmmaking.

I really dig how Theodore’s short uses that low-roving camera angle, and that jump over the fallen tree near the end is what sealed the deal for me. That one moment captures the playful vibe of the original trilogy so well. Sadly, Theodore hails from Wellington, New Zealand. So if he wants to be eligible for the signed poster he needs to have someone in the US it can be mailed to. Though – again – we still have 8 more winners to announce who are also eligible. Head inside to check out his short (and some stills from it)!

This is a contest for EVERYONE who loves The Evil Dead universe, no matter what your particular talents may be. Have an amazing Evil Dead collection of movies, video games, tapes and posters? Snap a pic and send it to us. Are you a great artist with some “groovy” ED related piece? Send it to us! Are you an aspiring filmmaker? Grab a camera and tell us (or act out even) just how much you love the Evil Dead (or Evil Dead 2 or Army Of Darkness). It doesn’t really matter what medium you choose for your submission, just so long as it’s awesome!

We will pick 10 Winners – each of whom will receive their own Deadite Of The Day article showcasing their work here on BD! The winners will be announced daily from March 25th – April 5th (weekends excluded). Submissions will be open the whole time, so if you see something you think you can top… TOP IT! We will announce a Grand Prize Winner (chosen from the 10 overall winners) on April 7th. The grand prize winner will receive POSTER SIGNED BY THE CAST AND CREW of Fede Alvarez’s upcoming (awesome) Evil Dead remake. While we invite anyone in the world to participate in the contest – you must be a US Resident (or know someone in the US you want it mailed to) to receive the poster.

If you have art, pictures etc… you can EMAIL YOUR SUBMISSIONS to deadite@bloody-disgusting.com For video submissions, please email YouTube, Vimeo, Vine etc… LINKS (as opposed to entire files). Also, once you send your submission to the email address, feel free to shout it out it to us on twitter @BDisgusting using the hashtag #BDDeadite! Now grab your boomsticks and get to work!!!

    Hmmm, Perhaps I should have spent more time with my description and background. Oh well, my kid was reading over my shoulder and making me uncomfortable.

    Theodore here.
    Just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for selecting me!
    My parents woke me up this morning with the news.

    Having been a huge fan and avid reader of your site for around two years, it’s crazy to see myself on here, to say the least.
    And even crazier to think that maybe Sam Raimi himself will end up seeing this.

    It’s a great honor and I’m pretty much over the moon right now…
    Thanks again.
    :D

    I even wrote a little script, but it will be impossible for me to shoot it so fast :( well, maybe I’ll shoot it anyway and post it on Youtube…

  • dirtyghettok
