    Thanks for this contest 🙂 My favorite scary movie is The Ring !

  2. Sully Cortez on October 26th, 2017 12:10 pm

    My fav scary movie…. hmmm that’s hard… but in all honesty… there is really only one truly horrifying film that may speak volumes of the potential future for humanity… and that movie…. is 1979’s Alien. (The Thing is a close runner up imo)

  3. Colt Hansen on October 26th, 2017 12:13 pm

    Cool contest. I like “Wait Until Dark” — it’s an oldie, but a goodie.

  4. kervarus on October 26th, 2017 12:13 pm

  10. Chris (@chris_byte) on October 26th, 2017 12:21 pm

    Awesome giveaway! Favorite scare movie? The 2016 POTUS elections…

    But really, Killer Klowns from Outer Space!

  11. Allen McGreevy on October 26th, 2017 12:22 pm

    The Shining still the best there has ever been

  12. carlo macchiavello on October 26th, 2017 12:28 pm

  16. Peter Wiese on October 26th, 2017 12:52 pm

    Oh man, the original Poltergeist, for sure. I was way too young when I saw it a sleep over. Ah, the ’80’s… Thanks guys!

  18. Shawn Hamer on October 26th, 2017 1:12 pm

    My favorite scary movie just might be Salem’s Lot – that was a classic on TV when I was a kid and it freaked me right out…

  19. cthulhu on October 26th, 2017 1:18 pm

    The Thing (1982) still gives me a jump, now and then.

  20. Karim on October 26th, 2017 1:36 pm

  40. Kristie on October 26th, 2017 8:58 pm

    Fingers crossed. Could really use an upgrade on my slider.

  41. Kate Whitley on October 26th, 2017 9:27 pm

    Without doubt, “Let the Right One In’. A beautifully-shot scary movie that’s more about social isolation than vampires

  42. Ben Lane on October 26th, 2017 10:52 pm

    The Original Halloween, absolutely ruined dark night for me as a kid! Probably still does now! lol

  43. Roni on October 27th, 2017 12:58 am

  46. mickomaticMick Kalber on October 27th, 2017 2:07 am

    I’m with Sully… the original Alien was the best scary movie.

  47. James Morrison on October 27th, 2017 2:44 am

    One of my favorites is What lies beneath!

  48. Will on October 27th, 2017 7:04 am

    In the Mouth of Madness is pretty dark story I must say!
    Jaws is probably the film that has most affected me though…

  49. Will on October 27th, 2017 7:06 am

    In the Mouth of Madness :/

  50. Jose Carlos Villarino on October 27th, 2017 7:58 am

    I really enjoyed Get Out. Thanks for doing the giveaway! Love everyone’s equipment.

  53. Jimmy Arcade on October 27th, 2017 1:17 pm

    My favorite scary movie would have to be The Shining. Jack Nicholson is genius in that movie and the unique cinematography styles introduced in that film paved the way for so much brilliance to come! The best is the one-shot filming that follows the tricycle around the lodge. So good!!

  54. Claudio Escobar on October 27th, 2017 1:18 pm

    Thanks!! My favorite(s) – The Shining / The Sixth Sense.

  55. styler07 on October 27th, 2017 2:20 pm

    What slickness that Zgrip is! I’d have to go with the classic Tremors.Those things always creep me out.

  56. Yong C on October 27th, 2017 2:51 pm

    The Shining

  63. Horacio Z Flores on October 28th, 2017 3:10 am

    I want to know if there is a left and right z grip trigger set? Or is there only the singles and do you just flip the single right side trigger to mount it on the left side?

  64. Oscar Stegland on October 28th, 2017 7:58 am

    I really enjoyed It Follows and The Witch these past few years

  65. Josh Ausley on October 28th, 2017 2:35 pm

    Been using Zacuto rigs for over two years, very satisfied and love the ratcheted tightening system. It’s one of the best out there.

    Silence of the lambs

  83. MeMe R on October 30th, 2017 11:43 am

    Each year my husband and I watch Black Christmas the, 1970’s versions and the 2006 version. We started when we met on yahoo 10yrs ago and have been doing it ever since. I am terminally ill so we don’t know how many more times we will get to do that much longer but we sure take a lot of pleasure in it. Thanks so much for bringing that memory to me as we just celebrated our anniversary in Sept.!

  84. Dave Hall on October 30th, 2017 11:49 am

    I’m hoping to win something or other! My favorite scary movie has to be the Exorcist.

  85. bboyles55 on October 30th, 2017 11:52 am

    By far, the original 1968 version of “Night of the Living Dead.” An American independent horror film directed by George A. Romero. The film was completed on a $114,000 budget and had its theatrical premiere on October 1, 1968.
    You can talk about all the other recent and definitely great horror movies shot with multi million dollar budgets and their spectacular CGI effects, but budget, b/w, and great use of sound and particularly lighting, this is my #1 horror classic.

  86. Andy on October 30th, 2017 11:54 am

    Favourite horror film has to be The Shining – in fact it might even be my favourite film of all time.

  87. Jared Jay Lemon on October 30th, 2017 11:54 am

    My favorite scary movie? The Emoji Movie. Definitely the Emoji Movie. The fact that movie got made… *shudders* Gives me nightmares.

  88. JD Media TV on October 30th, 2017 11:54 am

    huh my scary movie was Children of the Corn lol..

  89. S Larsen on October 30th, 2017 11:55 am

    Good contest. Favorite Scary Movie is the Big Short.

  90. Jerry Hattan on October 30th, 2017 12:11 pm

  100. Gus Van Zan on October 30th, 2017 12:41 pm

    Well my favorite scary movie is the first Jeepers Creepers. I watched ir when I was a teenager and I remember feeling the panic that the characters had. Such a good movie.

  101. Mo on October 30th, 2017 12:41 pm

    Not a fan of scary movies. but there is one running in the white house right now.

  102. Jack on October 30th, 2017 12:53 pm

    Wouldn’t be a bad Halloween present.

  103. Marty Callan on October 30th, 2017 1:13 pm

    The conjuring was a movie that really creeped me out.

  107. Matthew Ford on October 30th, 2017 1:30 pm

    Well, it’s tough one but I think the scary movie that has to win is… “Here’s Johnny”, The Shinning. Jack Nick’s decent into madness is the best…or perhaps the worst!!

  108. Justin Thaler on October 30th, 2017 1:31 pm

    My favorite scary movie is almost ALL of them… let’s say The Poughkeepsie Tapes or Tales of Halloween (11 Directors) — Always Chicago’s own HENRY: Portrait of A Serial Killer. Def Not Killing Of A Sacred Deer… that film, pretentious as F!

  109. Corby Martin on October 30th, 2017 1:50 pm

  112. Shina on October 30th, 2017 2:44 pm

  113. Michael Reynolds on October 30th, 2017 2:56 pm

  114. Adam Roberts on October 30th, 2017 3:22 pm

    Fav scary movie… The Shining. Tho Hitchcock’s Birds is a good one too.

  115. Alina on October 30th, 2017 3:27 pm


  116. Andrew Hobbs on October 30th, 2017 3:52 pm

    Jaws all the way

  117. Daniel Iwanicki on October 30th, 2017 3:58 pm

    “The thing” is the best 🙂

  118. Gustavo A. Garzon on October 30th, 2017 4:00 pm

    Audition is one of the most frightening movies I’ve seen.

  119. John Thynne on October 30th, 2017 4:08 pm

    The scariest movie….Picnic at Hanging Rock. Awesome film

  120. Rick Garbutt on October 30th, 2017 4:16 pm

    Scary movie? BURNT OFFERINGS, starring Karen Black, Oliver Reed, and Bette Davis!

  121. Patrick Roberts on October 30th, 2017 5:01 pm

    The Witches scared the crap out of me as a kid! That whole being stuck in the painting thing was pretty creepy. Also Anjelica Huston was glorious. Probably not scary for adults but hey.

  122. Mike Fried on October 30th, 2017 5:34 pm

    Oh my good, it would be the grates to win in this Raffle, especially I never really won something. My favorite scary movie is “The blare which project”

  123. Tom on October 30th, 2017 6:03 pm

    Cool giveaway! I’m still damaged by Poltergeist! Even worse (at the time) was Poltergeist 2, just because I went back to my empty house, constantly looking over my shoulder.

  124. Brian Tario on October 30th, 2017 6:22 pm

    Awesome contest! My favorite scary movie is Idiocracy…because it’s coming true!

  125. ajteledu on October 30th, 2017 6:49 pm

    The next scary movie would be my favourite and the one I would produce. It would show the old Welsh (and Celtic) belief of Halloween or as it is called, ‘Nos Calan Gaeaf’, literally the eve of winter. The idea of dressing up was to be unrecognisable to the ancestors who return to earth on this night and would try and take back the living relatives to the otherworld. What is more scary than that?

  126. Rafael Molina Henao on October 30th, 2017 8:09 pm

    Sweet, will come in handy with a Sony a7S II, Atomos Shogun Inferno and a pack of CN-E Primes in my arsenal.

  127. K on October 30th, 2017 9:07 pm

    The Shining

  128. Christopher Miller on October 30th, 2017 9:14 pm

    Great Offering Zacuto! Thanks . Favorite Scary movie Alien.u

  129. David Kaufman on October 30th, 2017 9:22 pm

    I’ve gotta say Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. The cinematography in his films, especially this one, is just on point every time.

  130. Kimberly B. on October 30th, 2017 9:36 pm

    The Shining, is by far the scariest movie I’ve seen.

  131. Matthew R Ulm on October 30th, 2017 9:41 pm

    Love me some free stuff and, in the spirit of spookiness, my favorite scary movie is The Conjuring 🙂

  132. Chuck Jett on October 30th, 2017 10:27 pm

    I have too many favorites when it comes to horror and comedic horror. I suppose all time faves are Army of Darkness. My favorite classic “straight” horror would have to be “The Satanic Rites of Dracula” – Christopher Lee will always be my Dracula as well as Peter Cushing being my Van Helsing. My favorite new horror release is “The Babysitter” playing on Netflix right now – not particularly “scary”, and a bit (intentionally) campy, but a very well executed story borrowing from many influences while being a very fun watch.

  133. Nancy Ericsson on October 30th, 2017 11:17 pm

    The Birds.

  134. andrewgreenstreetphotography on October 31st, 2017 4:11 am

    My favourite scary movie, I saw Salem’s Lot aged 11 which scared me so much I put crossed in my bedroom windows.

  135. Thomas Wojdyla on October 31st, 2017 6:03 am


  136. Ryan Zimmer on October 31st, 2017 9:55 am

    Not a huge fan of scary movies, but I’ll never forget the first time I saw The Ring. I was in high school and ended up having to finish watching the movie alone after my friends refused to keep watching. It didn’t help that after the movie ended and I turned off the DVD player my TV went automatically to the fuzzy screen just like in the movie. I freaked out!

  137. John on October 31st, 2017 10:42 am

    Hellraiser was my favorite scary movie or at least the first and only one that shocked me. I think I might have seen it at too young of age

  138. E.J. Enriquez on October 31st, 2017 4:13 pm

    Halloween the film!

  139. Prem on October 31st, 2017 5:42 pm
