I know, I know, there are a lot of giveaways this week. But there's not a one in the bunch that I felt I could turn down.

I covered Don Coscarelli's John Dies at the End pretty extensively when it came out; before that, Rob was a fan of the trailer. At the time, many of you expressed frustration that it probably would not be playing anywhere remotely near where you live.

And now, it doesn't have to. I am giving away three sets of the DVD and the original novel by David Wong. That's three winners who will take home both a disc and book apiece. I still feel this is the best movie released so far this year, a wild romp involving drugs, aliens, meat zombies, ghosts, alternate histories, masked nudists, caged demons and of course Paul Giamatti, all filtered through the always bizarre sensibility of Don Coscarelli.

Here is your challenge for entry: in comments below, imagine Coscarelli gets so desperate that he sells off the rights to all his movies. Hollywood does a big budget reboot of one. Which one is it, who do they cast, who directs it and how do they fuck it up the most?

As always, you have one week; contest closes April 9th, 2013, at 11:59 pm. Enter as often as you like, I reserve the right to reassign prizes if winners prove uncontactable, etc.
