Pants are overrated, so you won’t mind if we scare yours off, right? It’s October and we’re all screaming for Indie Screams. Throughout the month we will be showing the best in independent horror films, from Eli Roth’s bloody Hostel to the brilliantly hilarious Evil Dead Part II.
The blood red cherry on top of the gory sundae of horror movie fun is that this year we will be showing Dead Set. If you ever wondered what would happen if zombies invaded the set of the hit reality television show Big Brother, Dead Set has the answer. Each week night from October 22-29 we will play one episode. Then, on Halloween we will be showing the entire series back-to-back.
To help mark this years Indie Screams, we will be hosting a daily trivia contest on Twitter. Every weekday at 2 p.m. ET we will ask a trivia question based on that night’s fright fest. Be the first to tweet the correct answer at us and you will win an IFC t-shirt and the respect of all your peers. Additionally, each daily winner will be entered into a drawing for our Grand Prize, an iTunes Gift Card. Simply follow us @ifcdotcom to start playing.
