Win Maps to the Stars and Pride!


In February of 2011, we were joined by guest Josh Nelson, who chatted to us about the films of body horror maestro David Cronenberg. Last year we saw Cronenberg's evolution continue with Maps to the Stars, a creepy Hollywood story of narcissism, obsession and death. And now we have three copies to give away to three lucky listeners, thanks to eOne Entertainment!

But that's not all: the three winners will also receive a DVD of Pride (again, thanks to eOne Entertainment), the film that our December 2014 guest Richard Watts picked as one of that year's five best!

Maps to the Stars Pride

To win this unlikely pair of DVDs, simply answer the following question:

In the February 2011 episode of Hell Is For Hyphenates, Josh Nelson says he initially didn't like one of David Cronenberg's films, and now considers it “up with Videodrome as [Cronenberg's] masterpiece”. Which film was he referring to?

To enter, send your answer to co*********@he*****************.com by midnight on April 5. All correct answers will be mixed up together in some sort of accessible but hollow object, and the three winning entries chosen at random. The winners will be notified by email. No correspondence will be entered into, though we always love hearing from you.

Hell Is For Hyphenates – December 2014

Arts journalist and broadcaster Richard Watts guest hosts this episode of Hyphenates, talking about the films of December 2014, comparing notes on the best films of the year, and looking at the films and career of indie filmmaker and key figure in the New Queer Cinema movement, Gregg Araki.
