As of January 29, 2012, the 2012 Tabloid Witch Awards has received 8 horror film entries: 7 shorts and 1 feature. Entries have come from Canada, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, and the United States.

The Tabloid Witch Awards is a No Entry Fee horror film contest and festival. To enter the 2012 awards, your DVD must be in our in-box by August 31, 2012.

It's long before the deadline, so entries are still only trickling in. They normally start picking up around April, then pour in during July, and flood in during the final month (August).

Constellation TV to Screen Mike Flanagan's Absentia

Mike Flanagan's Absentia won several Tabloid Witch Awards in 2011 -- including Best Horror Feature Film.

Now Constellation TV will screen Absentia -- on February 2, 2012, 10 p.m. EST -- a little over a month before Phase 4 Film's DVD release of Absentia.

After Constellation's screening, Flanagan will participate in an online Q&A. "The conversation will take place in Constellation's virtual movie theater platform, with the hosts live via webcam."

Constellation is a "virtual theatrical exhibitor" that sells tickets to online film screenings, many of which are presented by "VIP hosts" (e.g., the film's director, actors, etc.).

Erasmo Romero III -- Continued Success for a Great Artist

A late post, but still worth noting.

Last Christmas (nearly a month ago!), Erasmo Romero III sent out his latest graphic work, entitled "The Santa," to wish Merry Christmas to all his friends.

This beautiful work of "horror art" both demonstrates Romero's creative talents -- and why his Skin Deep won a Tabloid Witch Award for Best Short Comedic Horror Film in 2007.

Amazingly, Romero was a mere film student when he shot Skin Deep -- an undergraduate film student!

Despite the tough economy, and the exodus of film production from Los Angeles, Romero's portfolio, upon graduating film school, was so impressive that he soon found employment in San Diego at Legend 3D.

The Tabloid Witch Awards is proud to have provided the premiere screening for Skin Deep.

In case you haven't seen it, here it is again:

And here is Erasmo Romero III in 2007, which his Tabloid Witch Award for the above film.

Skin Deep also won Tabloid Witches for Best Actor (James Rollyson) and Best Music Soundtrack (Joseph Y. Kamiya).
