Okay, all you movie maniacs, it's officially time for our Third Annual Halloween Costume Contest. We're so excited about it we just couldn't wait another day to give you the official rules -- and tell you what the prizes are. We want you to have plenty of time to plan for and prep your fabulous costumes, because if last year's entries are any indication, the competition is going to be stiff! The father-son duo dressed as Doc Oc and Spidey, pictured, was last year's winner in the adult category.

So what are you competing for? A spooktacular (yes, I really did just say that, sorry) prize package of horror DVDs hand-selected by our Cinematical staffers! This year, there will be two winners: one adult (18 years or older) and one kid (under 18 years old).

These fabulous prizes can be yours -- if you have the costume our readers think is the best! Here are the DVDs the lucky winners will be adding to their collections:
