I want a room in their hotel

So, I'm sure a few of you have received an email from the guys over at Hotel Guignol about your submission, but if you haven't or if you are still wondering if you should send a script/story for their consideration, check out their short horror film Olivia which is entered in the Master of the Macabre competition.

And make sure you keep watching beyond the credits...

Did you watch it? I bet you really, really, really want them to accept your story now. I know I do.

That was uber-creepy greatness. Wow.

Wow. certainly a Robert Bloch moment there.

They certainly know what they're doing.

What a fun little flick...I like getting that just-watched-a-scary-movie chilly feeling in the morning, it kind of tints the rest of your day.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Yeah, I was very impressed by the effort.

Have you considered self publishing your blog as a book? Or maybe you have that finished manuscript gathering dust on your desk?

I found what I think is a new website, WorldWide Alliance of Writers, www.wwaow.com. What you get is 5 printed copies of your book and a listing on their ecommerce web site for $80. Not much is on there yet but nothing like being an early adopter...

Yikes. A good example of super creepy minimalism.

Creepy - ewww.

It's pretty cool, isn't it. It stayed in my mind long after viewing it.

Hey Cate, I've received two emails from Hotel Guignol now - the first one saying they were "seriously considering" the subs of everyone who received the email, and then linking to "Olivia", which I'm assuming is the same email you got. Then another one today saying something like "you will all definitely be a part of Hotel Guignol"...I'm a little confused. Did you get the second email? What's your interpretation?

Catherine J Gardner said...

Felicity - my interpretation of the first email was a 'Round Robin' so that all the contributors would check out their little film (I had no problem with that) and as to the comment in the second email, I think they mean that we will all be watching the mini-movies at Hotel Guignol. It is an exciting project and I wish them well. Do I think I'll get in? God, no. :)

Hayes - A million times NO! Oh and spammers suck.

That scared the crap out of me!

I thought it was a perfect example of how to scare without all the hack and slash stuff.
