This is a town where there seems to be no way out--but there is--but you don't want to go there. But you don't want to stay. There are mysterious creeps and a weird doctor. And Shadows. You're going to feel like Dylan's Mister Jones, believe you me.

Abbreviated rules

The first line of a haiku poem has five syllables.
The second line has seven syllables.
The third, and final, line has five syllables.

The Movie Haiku Contest (MHC) is open to every member of the FWFR site. Give it a try if you never have--it's SO EASY!

To enter, all you have to do is think of a Haiku for the current movie, then post into the current thread. (Hint: read it out loud, ticking off the syllables with your fingers as you do so.)

Haikus may be risque, but not over the top, please, nor other exotic positions that would de-Classify this Classiest of contests.

Only one entry per person. However, you may edit your existing entry until 9pm Tuesday FWFR time.


Voting

If you have entered the MHC, then you have to vote. It's required. If you enter but do not vote, you get a whopping 3 point penalty, and bye-bye championship.

You do not have to enter an MHC to vote. Vote away. It'll be just like a lurker vote! And We Heart Lurkers.


---------------------------------

For each round, you get to vote for your three favourite haikus. The voting is as follows:

3 pts fwfr a
2 pts fwfr b
1 pt fwfr c
--------------------------------

You may vote only once.
You may not vote for yourself.

You vote by sending me your votes in a PM (Private Message) here. Vote deadline is Wed 8 Sept 9:00 AM fwfr time. Thanks for entering!

I didn't see this,
But I read the decription.
It was very dark.

You won't get cleaner
bathing in Stranger hotels.
That ring means murder.

Too dark to see my votes, so I can't tell who got them!

Friends, long story short: light turnout, and a tie between BaftaBabe and Sludge. Sorry for the uninspiring movie choice; perhaps two heads will be better than one for the next.

If one of you two doesn't post a new movie within 24 hours, I'm going to be a buttinski and do it myself!

I'm totally off schedule. Thought this was for this week. Sorry folks.

I thought this would inspire many haiku entries.
