To celebrate the release of creepy sci-fi horror Blood Glacier on DVD, we’re offering all artists, designers and illustrators an amazing opportunity to have their sick imaginations brought to life much like the stomach-churning insect/animal hybrids of the movie.
All you need to do is draw a monster worthy of a horror film and submit it to SciFiNow where the entries will be judged by Blood Glacier director Marvin Kren and the winning design then fully realised by 3D printer as a model that you can keep!
You will also win a copy of the film on DVD.
“A great monster should not only try to scare the shit out of me it also should have some weak elements like Achilles’ heel,” explains Kren of what he’ll be looking for when he judges your entries.
“Tell a story about your monster. Where does it come from? Why is it here? Who are its enemies and is it scared of something as well? I am looking forward to see what the geeks and freaks out there will deliver.”
