That tells us we did our job right and we hope you had fun! It came down to "sudden death" to get the last "horror" celebrity name right. Yes, Gary Busey (The Ginger Dead Man - look it up, it's a real horror movie) did not get guessed out of nearly 200 of you! We thought that would slip you up, lol!
Below are the winning users and the reveal of who were hiding behind the masks. We hope you enjoyed not just the contest but all of our great FRIDAY THE 13th content, articles, collectibles and stories. This is truly the new "fully interactive" HorrorBid experience and we hope you enjoy. We love to go overboard, don't ya think? :) See you back tomorrow for more horror news, announcements, articles, trailers and everything in between. Thanks again,
Welcome to the brand new HorrorBid.com, the worlds 1st ever fully interactive (FREE) fan-driven community providing the latest in horror news and rumors, collectibles, articles, reviews, trailers, auctions, podcasts, interviews and so much more. We have went through many changes since our initial burst onto the horror scene in 2007 and due to countless hours and dedication from our staff and members we have finally reached our true "niche" in the world of horror. It's been a long journey and we still have many things to add the help make your experience with us truly most unique and best that we can possibly provide.
We are the worlds first horror site that allows you, the fans, to contribute and get published on our homepage earning rewards and recognition along the way. Horror is a tight knit group of rabid fans, almost a family like community so creating a site that involved the fans was literally a no brainier. We hope you enjoy the new changes we've made and we hope you'll comeback and debate and contribute to the site day in and day out, sharing with other members that know the passion that we all have for our beloved genre.
One thing that we have always been known for is our contests. We try our very best to go above and beyond when it comes to "giving back" to you the community for making HorrorBid one of your stops and your daily journey on the web. With today being FRIDAY THE 13th we wanted to not only let you know a little bit more about our site but we wanted to create a contest that celebrates one of our most iconic franchises in horror history. 31 years ago on a FRIDAY THE 13th like this we were first introduced to Jason Voorhee's through his grief stricken mother, Pamela. Vowing to redeem her sons death we were taken on a ride that introduced a hockey mask wearing psycho that would ultimately through sequel after sequel become one of the most recognizable slasher legends in movie history.
In honor of the day we have created a contest that not only has a list of prizes that would make any FRIDAY THE 13th fan squeal with glee, we have also included our signature humor into today's celebration as well.
Below are 3 images taken from various FRIDAY THE 13th films. One of the coolest things about a masked slasher is wanting to know what lies beneath. How hideously disfigured will they make Jason in the next installment we always wonder. After watching the films throughout the years most of us know what Jason looks like throughout the series but we are about to change that.
We have placed 3 horror "celebrities" behind each one of 3 images of Jason you see below. These could be anyone involved in horror. From Anthony Perkins who played Norman Bates in PSYCHO to Adam Green, the director of the HATCHET movie series. If they are involved with horror, they could be behind the masks.
It is up to you to guess the horror "celebrity" we photoshopped under the masked images and based on the person you choose, if you guess correctly you will win the prize that goes along with that particular picture of Jason. So if you pick for example "Bela Lugosi" and he ends up being under the mask from one of the pictures of Jason below, you win the prize associated with that image. Simple enough, right?
Limit 1 entry per user and if you choose a name that has already been mentioned your "guess" will be dismissed in favor of the user that posted the correct name first. At 12 o'clock (midnight) PST (that's 3AM for us "East Coasters") the images will be updated and the horror "celebrity" behind the masks will be updated. If you picked the right name, you will win the prize associated with the pic.
If at midnight PST no one has guess the correct horror "celebrity" name or only 1 or 2 images haven't been correctly identified we will go into sudden death. We will then list 10 names shortly after midnight that will include the correct horror "celebrity" or "celebrities" mixed in with random other names. The first person or persons to choose and post the correct name after that will win.
If after reading all of this and you are still unsure what to do, just guess a horror "celebrity" name, post your guess in the thread below this topic and you will be notified if you guessed correctly.
It truly is as simple as typing a 1 horror "celebrity" name that you think we may have photoshopped behind any of the Jason photos below.
Good luck to everyone and most importantly have fun! We will be running F-13 stories all day long and we hope you will share your stories with us via the forums as well. Happy FRIDAY THE 13th and remember, mommy loves you Jason.
If you choose more than one horror "celebrity" name that post is disqualified.
Also if you pick a name that someone has already picked before you, they win if they are correct.
Try to guess a name that has not been picked yet. I know that is hard as the amount of guesses increases. If you post multiple times in this contest with different names and choose different "celebrities" each time you will be disqualified and the names will still be available for others to choose.
If the name you choose matches up with one of the 3 images of Jason we have posted, you win the prize associated with that particular image of Jason once we unmask them all and reveal the horror "celebrity".
(Note: It is ok to re-guess if you've already posted multiple names or a name that has already been taken. But you can not re-edit your post and choose a different name, that will result in disqualification)
Most of all, have fun! And Happy Friday the 13th! :JGTH:
