Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

We've peed our pants many a time, but by far our fondest memory of it was when we peed our pants during John Carpenter's Halloween (other memories: not so fond). JK, we've never peed our pants in our entire lives, but seriously, John Carpenter is one of the best horror directors out there -- and we're not the only nerds who think so: We got a slew of entries in our comment contest to win a poster for The Ward, Carpenter's latest, signed by the man himself. And while it was a tough decision, we've picked our winners. Could one be you? Find out below...

Without further ado (we don't really "do" ado),

From Dominic:

Demons= gore, glowing eyes, 80's soundtrack

From Jake Taylor:

Halloween - Outdoors, Camping, Undying, Gore, Boobs

From Jeremy Williard:

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me --> Creepiest shit I've ever seen...

From Brandon Young:

Dawn of the Dead (original): Duh...

From Tfuglei:

Black Christmas--The Original Slasher

Congratulations, all -- check your email for instructions on how to claim your prize.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
