Calling Cirque du Freak FANS!!

October 13, 2009
You there. Yes, you. To celebrate the upcoming movie release of Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (in theaters October 23rd!!), I'm hosting a giveaway from Big Honcho Media. Keep on reading...

vampires assistant posterWhat is this, you ask? Well, they made a movie out of a book. Yeah, crazy, I know. Anyway. So, what's it about?
Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan, is a fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares.
CIRQUE DU FREAK has been rated PG-13 (Parents Strongly Cautioned - Some Material May Be Inappropriate for Children Under 13) for sequences of intense supernatural violence and action, disturbing images, thematic elements and some language.
