Contest: Cirque Du Freak

The Vampire's Assistant hits theatres on October 23rd, and I can't wait. (There was a sneak peek for children in my area, which made me madly jealous.) The book series, by Darren Shan, started coming out when I was in fifth grade. I continued reading it through high school since I wanted to know what happened - and the big reveals at the end were definitely surprising. Luckily, my friends shared my taste so they didn't make fun of me for reading a gory kids' series.

The movie stars John C. Reilly as Mr. Crepsley, which I'm still on the fence about. At least the trailer looks funny! The description of the movie is basic, which I find somewhat frustrating.
Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan, is a fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares.

But if you haven't read the books yet, don't worry! I've got just the prize for two people. It includes a Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant locker mirror and the movie tie-in edition, which includes the first three Cirque Du Freak novels, CIRQUE DU FREAK, THE VAMPIRE'S ASSISTANT, and TUNNEL OF BLOOD.
Do you love to be scared? Then don't miss the terrifying adventure that begins when Darren and his best friend, Steve, get tickets to the CIRQUE DU FREAK, a wonderfully bizarre and creepy freak show. Brace yourself for thrills and chills as the boys witness a parade of grotesque creatures and face their deepest fears by entering the darkest world of the vampire. In the blood-curdling tradition of Anne Rice and Stephen King, CIRQUE DU FREAK will have you shrieking for the next horror show!

  8. Great contest! I haven't read any of these yet and would love to. Thanks for your giveaway!

    I don't know if I would call it a favorite but the first movie that scared the crap out of me was the first Halloween movie. When it came out there wasn't anything like it and I saw it at the drive-in. EEK!
