Warner Bros. has very generously offered to let me give away a Blu Ray combo pack of the 2012 DARK SHADOWS movie to one of my readers.

DARK SHADOWS comes to Blu Ray, DVD and digital download on Oct. 2. While everyone else is standing in line at Target or waiting for the mailman to deliver a package from Amazon, you can score a copy for free by answering one simple question:

What would you do after being in a box for two centuries?

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends on Sept. 28, 2012 at 12:01 AM (EST). I will select the winner, who will be notified via e-mail. The winner has three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen.

Now, your answer doesn't have to be novel-length. It can be as long or as short as you like, just make it imaginative. Hell, it doesn't even have to be written. Send me a photo, a drawing, a video or whatever other medium you choose ... just as long as you answer the question.

If you're visiting this site, odds are you already know what DARK SHADOWS is about. But WB has provided me a detailed summry of the film, and it never hurts a website's traffic to have names like "Johhny Depp" and "Michelle Peiffer" appear as often as possible.

DARK SHADOWS (synopsis)
Director Tim Burton brings the cult classic series "Dark Shadows" to the big screen in a film featuring an all-star cast, led by Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter. In the year 1750, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from England to start a new life in America, where they build a fishing empire in the coastal Maine town that comes to carry their name: Collinsport. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy...until he makes the grave mistake of falling in love with a beauty named Josette DuPres (Bella Heathcote) and breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death—turning him into a vampire, and then burying him...alive.

Nearly two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972, a stranger in an even stranger time. Returning to Collinwood Manor, he finds that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin, and the dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Family matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) is the one person Barnabas entrusts with the truth of his identity. But his rather odd and anachronistic behavior immediately raises the suspicions of the live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), who has no idea what kind of problems she's really digging up.

As Barnabas sets out to restore his family name to its former glory, one thing stands in his way: Collinsport's leading denizen, who goes by the name Angie...and who bears a striking resemblance to a very old acquaintance of Barnabas Collins. Also residing in Collinwood Manor are Elizabeth's ne'er-do-well brother, Roger Collins, (Jonny Lee Miller); her rebellious teenage daughter Carolyn Stoddard (Chloë Grace Moretz); and Roger's precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins (Gully McGrath). The longsuffering caretaker of Collinwood is Willie Loomis (Jackie Earle Haley), and new to the Collins' employ is David's nanny, Victoria Winters (Bella Heathcote), who is, mysteriously, the mirror image of Barnabas' one true love, Josette.

The deleted scenes look great. Wish they'd made it into the movie!
