Rondo Voting Has Begun - And We're Up for an Award

The annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards are coming up, and voting has begun on the increasingly lengthy ballot. My book, Regional Horror Films, has been nominated in the "Book of the Year" category, so please head on over to the Rondo site and send in your vote per the instructions on the top of the page.

Other regional horror-related nominees include the Film Chest restoration of Zaat!, the Night of the Living Dead Karen Cooper bobblehead toy from Drastic Plastic, and Eli Roth's featurette on the Mother's Day DVD.

Although the ballot is long, you don't have to vote in every category, and you can write-in nominees if you like. There's also some find work on the ballot from Tim Lucas, David Konow, Mike Gingold, Chris Poggiali, and other writers.

Voting ends April 7.

Trailer of the Week: The Orphan (1979)

Oddball horror from New Jersey, filmed by director John Ballard over a period of 10 years.
