If you're a Tyler Perry fan and your home could use a few conversation-starting posters on the wall, then you've come to the right place.

It's the first day of spring and a perfect time to celebrate young love of the parasitic alien variety. And how do we do that? By giving away a prize pack for Open Road's adaptation of Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer's novel, The Host, to one budding poet out there who can capture the spirit of the movie in an original haiku. more »
Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man with swag to give away: Specifically, three limited-edition The Last Exorcism Part II posters — two red and one olive green — designed by artist Rich Knepprath. No need to sell your soul. All you need to do is submit an original haiku (using the 5-7-5 format) inspired by The Last Exorcism franchise, the subject of possession or...Satan.
Before you attempt this, you must be a U.S. resident and at least 18 years of age. If you fulfill those stringent qualifications, leave your efforts in the comments section below and include your poster color preference so that, if you win, your prize doesn't clash with your decor. Deadline is Noon Pacific Time on Friday, March 1, the date that The Last Exorcism Part II hits theaters.
Now, fix yourself a can of pea soup, invite all the flies in the neighborhood into your home and break out your creepiest yoga move for inspiration. (You can also watch the official trailer and check out the posters below.) I want to be thrilled and chilled by your Lovecraftian genius.

John Cusack dives into the twisted psyche of 19th century author Edgar Allan Poe in this week's The Raven, a fictional adventure-mystery that blends the writer's real life with the kind of dark, macabre tales he wove -- and Movieline has your chance to catch it before it opens on April 27! Enter Movieline's 10-word review contest (critiquing any film from Cusack's nearly three-decade career) and you could win a pair of tickets to the Los Angeles premiere and after party for the film.
