The Vampire's Assistant Movie Giveaway

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Recently, there's been an increase in the number of YA books turning into movies or TV shows.

I actually like this because it makes people read books. How many people do you know who read Twilight, after they found out there was a movie for it? Personally, I can say a handful. (Plus, I am one of those people. hehe)

Here's another movie, THE VAMPIRE’S ASSISTANT based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan.

In theaters OCTOBER 23rd

Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan, is a fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares.

(To view the trailer click here or click on the tab labeled "Trailer" on the widget below.)

Looks pretty darn good, doesn't it. And the lead

So, to give you a little incentive other then Josh Hutcherson looks fine all grown up and to check the movie out, I present to you all a contest wherein:

Two (2) winners will receive:

* Cirque du Freak book Set (3 titles in one book)
* Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant Locker Mirror

DVD’s are valued at $16.98 each.

Here's some info regarding the book that is up for grabs:

THE VAMPIRE'S ASSISTANT and Other Tales from the Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan
New movie edition features the first three books--Cirque Du Freak, The Vampire's Assistant, and Tunnels of Blood-- bound up in one volume!

Do you love to be scared? Then don't miss the terrifying adventure that begins when Darren and his best friend, Steve, get tickets to the CIRQUE DU FREAK, a wonderfully bizarre and creepy freak show. Brace yourself for thrills and chills as the boys witness a parade of grotesque creatures and face their deepest fears by entering the darkest world of the vampire. In the blood-curdling tradition of Anne Rice and Stephen King, CIRQUE DU FREAK will have you shrieking for the next horror show!

"There is a little freak in all of us" LOVE! :P So true, too.

This is a cool contest! I've heard of the books, but never have gotten around to reading them cause my local library doesn't have 'em. :( They sound really good, though!

Oh, and about the Twilight thing? Pretty much all of my friends (actually, pretty much every girl in my school) got into Twilight last September when they started hearing about the movie. I'd read 'em ages ago, pretty much when they first started coming out. I think the movie crazed readers kinda ruined the whole Twilight thing for me. No offense.
