From Frankenstein to Hannibal, Norman Bates to that nasty clown in IT, we want to see you look your worst by dressing up as a scary character from the world of film. Simply send us a photo of your dress-up effort for your chance to win tickets to a host of fantastic events, as well as enough DVDs and books to keep you hiding under the duvet for the rest of the year.

We’ll shortlist the entries that terrify us the most, then post them across our social media channels to let you do the voting. The only way to guarantee your favourite movie-monster gets the attention it deserves is to become it!
