VCinema Podcast First Anniversary Contest!

The deadline for this round of the contest has expired.  Round two is listed here.

OK everyone, let’s see if we can get those lucky juices flowing!!!   Are you ready for a contest?!?!?

Episode 22 of our podcast, scheduled for release on January 31st, 2011, will mark the VCinema podcast’s first anniversary.  Can you believe it?!  We can’t either.  Anyway, in this episode, we will have our first discussion of an entire film trilogy (we normally only discuss one film per episode) and this is where the contest comes in. Email us at with the name of the director whose trilogy we will discuss and you will earn a chance to win a prize, the winner of which we will determined by random draw during episode 22.

Now, that’s leaving you all sort of high and dry because there must be a million Asian directors who have directed a million film trilogies, so how would you know which we chose unless you could read our minds (and you can’t, CAN YOU?!)  Well, here’s a hint:

This director, who shares his last name with another famous Japanese director, got his start in Japanese pinku and direct-to-video yakuza films before later becoming popular during the “J-Horror” film boom in the late ’90s to mid 2000’s.

OK, got it?!  Easy peasy, right?!  Just email us the director’s name and you’re good (well, for a chance to win, anyway).  Only one entry per person and all entries must be in by Sunday, January 16th at midnight PST to be considered for the prize, so get your entry in as soon as possible.

Also, be sure to listen to episode 21, out on January 17, 2011, for a second chance at an entry into this contest!

*VCinema will not use your email address for marketing or spam.  We will only contact you if you are the winner or you have a question about the contest.
