In the upcoming movie The Roommate, opening February 4, a college freshman (Minka Kelly) gets paired with a psychotic roommate (Leighton Meester) off her meds and out for blood. Now while we're sure similar incidents have happened, we're also sure the truth is even stranger than fiction. We know you've got crazier stories of crazier roommates, and we want to hear them.
We're giving away a $100 Visa Gift Card, a run-of-engagement pass for two to The Roommate, and a goodie-bag of Roommate swag for the best psycho-roommate story submitted. Second and third place winners will receive run-of-engagement passes and promo items. And all three stories will be published here on Art Attack.
The contest deadline is this Sunday, February 6, at midnight.
Send your submissions to email@example.com.
