Last year the Miss Horrorfest contest proved to be the most successful contest in YouTube history. Over the last month, contestants have submitted 90-second videos on YouTube and participated in live auditions across the country in the hopes of winning $50,000 and the coveted title of Miss Horrorfest 2007. YouTube users have the ability to influence the selection of Miss Horrorfest by viewing the entries and ranking them with stars leading up to the Miss Horrorfest crowning, which will take place live on national television in New York City.
Along with its partners AMC, Regal and Cinemark, After Dark Horrorfest 2007 runs over the course of one week (2 weekends) on over 300 screens across the United States from November 9 - 18th, making it the largest film festival in the world.
