"Wait, so is she actually eating a dog?" I swear I said that to myself at one point while watching all these Miss Horrorfest videos. What is Miss Horrorfest? And how to I date her? Well, I can answer the first part for you -- Miss Horrorfest is an annual contest held by After Dark Films in which they award one lucky (and freak-ish) lady with the title of Miss Horrorfest in conjunction with After Dark's actual Horrorfest, which screens 8 new films between the dates of November 9-18, 2007. If you're a cool chick who digs horror and warped beauty pageants, then all you need to do is submit a 90-second video to YouTube with the words "Miss Horrorfest" and "Horrorfest, November 9-18, 2007" somewhere inside the Oscar-worthy masterpiece. However, the contest only runs through September 30, which is like four days from now, so you don't have a lot of time to get to it.

If you're not into the whole YouTube thing (and I don't blame you -- all those nasty comments would give me a complex in all of about two minutes), you can participate in one of four live auditions held in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago and Dallas. I'm not sure whether any of the live audition dates have passed, but you can get all of the info over on Horrorfest's official YouTube page. Because I have nothing better to do with my time, I spent part of the morning watching some of these videos. While most of them are -- how do I say it -- friggin' awful, there are a few that I enjoyed. I've included the video that I liked the most after the jump, although the girl certainly pimps herself out -- and I hate people who say, "Look, I've done all these things, which means you simply have to pick me!" But so far it's the best I've seen, so head on over there and check out the rest. I think you vote for your favorite, and the winner is chosen that way ... or something. Also, stay tuned to Cinematical this October as we'll be shelling out more Halloween-themed content than you know what to do with.
