Giveaway of 1000 Ugly Brutal Cuts: Winners!!

The results are in on our THINGS fanart giveaway! Today we’re handing out THINGS DVDs courtesy of Intervision Picture Corp and copies of WICKED WORLD from Barry J. Gillis himself. A few weeks ago we asked questionably artistic B-movie fans to send in their most horrible, brutal and insane fanart devoted to the most warped Canadian film of all time, THINGS.  Here are the results!

“Grand” Prize Winner
A hearty mulleted congats to Wilson Stiner, who picks up an autographed THINGS DVD courtesy of Intervision as well as a THINGS comic book that we didn’t even know we were giving away until Barry gave us an extra copy. Like THINGS, Mr. Stiner’s submission is acutely painful to look at, hazy and garish in all the right (wrong?) ways.  One of several entries that chose to capture the film’s dreamlike intro of a nude devil-masked woman, we also particularly liked the inclusion of the clothes iron in the background to add to the seedy basement ambience. Check it out!

First Runner-Up
It’s obvious that Jesse Arnison‘s runner-up winning entry displays at least a little artistic talent, but the expression on Barry’s face is just too perfect as he hoists his beer while completely failing to notice the ant/creature/thing sneaking into the frame, which fairly sums up the entire plot of the film. Jesse picks up a DVD copy of THINGS from Intervision for his trouble.

More fanart and prizes revealed after the jump!

CanFilm Five: THINGS Star Barry J. Gillis

“CanFilm Five” is the Canuxploitation blog’s ongoing guest column, which brings together prominent filmmakers, bloggers, critics, programmers to discuss their most loved offbeat Canadian films.

For this edition of CanFilm Five, we asked Barry J. Gillis, the star of THINGS (which hits DVD from Intervision Film Corp on July 13) and WICKED WORLD, for his five favourite Canadian films.

Barry: There are lots of films that could be a part of this list. For example, David Cronenberg is my favorite Canadian director and I love many of his films. It is difficult to remember every Canuxploitation movie I have ever watched, and there are so many Canuxploitation movies that I still have yet to see. Thanks to the Canuxploitation film review site, we can all rejoice in knowing that there are tons of Canadian movies worth checking out that we may not even heard of, and many more that are worth watching  for the 100th time!
