Ok, the prizes on offer are a mix of the genres that make up DVD Trash and they are 3 Mighty Men from Onar Films, Gen-X Cops, Nine Deaths of the Ninja/Killpoint (Double Feature) and Dario Argento's latest, Do You Like Hitchcock?
All you need to do is answer this easy question:

In addition you must complete a quick tie-breaker:

How exciting! The family reunited. My heart is so mushy. And no, Sienna Miller ain't gonna be in it."

Recently arrived to the DVD Trash collection is the Kriminal OST - one of my favourite comic book movies - from MovieGrooves!
"The long awaited released of the full soundtrack from Umberto Lenzi's 1966 cult crime-caper movie - Kriminal, based on the famous comic strip by writer Max Bunker and artists Magnus.
Lenzi's movie version of Kriminal starred Glenn Saxson as the eponymous anti-hero master-thief, a character much in the same vein as Diabolik - another comic strip character who also had got the movie treatment in 1968 by Mario Bava.
The Kriminal soundtrack is a fantastic mix of groovy dance beats, smooth jazz and lounge alongside some tension-heightening incidental music and ethnic elements such as Arabian arabesques."
Really nice grooves and one for fans to pick up. If your unfamiliar with Kriminal then you can read some DVD reviews of Kriminal and Il Marchio di Kriminal, with some more background to the character here
