Looking for Contributors for Shitmas 2013!

Few things bum me out more then the day after Halloween, we wait all year for for our favorite day to arrived and then it's over before you know it . . .
 But in the last couple years the day after Halloween has made way for the coming of "Shitmas" here at The Shit Movie Fest Blog!
Yeah I know that Halloween's body isn't even cold yet, but in order to get everything together in time for December, I gotta ask now who's in for a third helping of Shitmas?!?

So by now you may be wondering what actually this "Shitmas" thing is all about, well the best way I can describe it is once a year some of the best writers in the Horror Blogging Community and Friends of the SMF Page come together to do all kind of write-ups for the Holiday Season! There are Reviews or Lists about Holiday Movies, features on Old-school Toys, a few Giveaways/Contests, etc.

This year I am going to review the new Holiday Slasher "You Better Watch Out"
from "Roadkill Entertainment"!

Along with spot lighting some  films such as "Just Friends", "Vice Versa", "I Come in Peace" and Danny Boyle's "Millions"!
