Last year I became involved in a group that gives awards to the best in horror films within that year. This year spans from 12/2012 until 11/2013.
Some news has come down from the big guy behind this whole enterprise, Troy Escamilla, which I’d like to share with you. In doing so my aim is to drum up some interest and support for the Fright Meter Awards.
From Troy: “The awards will be presented at Pensacon in Pensacola, FL on February 22nd 2014. They are giving an hour of programming time that evening right before their big costume event to present. While an hour may not seem like a terrible (amount) of time, it may definitely work as an advantage since it is our first year.
Tom Savini will be given the Lifetime Achievement Award. He is scheduled to be in attendance!”
We also are interested in the committee growing “with passionate horror fans, bloggers, actors, writers, etc. That will bring more respect and prestige in terms of how the awards are viewed.”
For those of you who are interested you can either contact me here or go to the Fright Meter website to contact the awards directly. Thanks for your interest.—Charles T. Cochran
