Halloween is nearly upon us… but before you get your trick-or-treating on, we have a treat for you! It’s time to reveal the winner of our third annual Halloween logline contest! You sent us your darkest, dreariest, and most diabolical loglines that either delighted or disturbed us.
We received a pumpkin patch full of entries this year, and with so many spooky loglines, narrowing them down was a truly terrifying task. Yet somehow, we emerged from the shadows to unmask our winners and runner ups!
1st RUNNER UP: (receiving a one-month extension on their current subscription)
“A paranoid dogcatcher picks up a string of lost pets wearing tags that are each addressed to the location of a murder victim.”

2nd RUNNER UP: (receiving a one-month extension on their current subscription)
