The winners of 2015 Fright Meter Awards are now ready to be presented to the Horror Community! I’m not really pleased as I would like with all of the results. But, hey, the world isn’t perfect. Well, most of the winners are either ones I voted for or I have no problem with. Besides, 2015 wasn’t that good a year for horror, in my opinion.

Well, enough of my views; here’s the winners of the 2015 Fright Meter Awards! —Charles T. Cochran

FRIGHT METER AWARD RECRUITMENT DRIVE

We at the Fright Meter Awards are looking to recruit more committee members.

The Fright Meter Awards is an annual event that honors the best in horror cinema. Best Picture, directing, writing, acting are a few of the categories given each year. Short horror films have started being honored last year. And, it looks like horror themed television will be included this award season. Tom Savini was our first inductee to the Fright Meter’s Hall of Fame last year.

It is true that we at the Fright Meter Award have bloggers, reviewers, and filmmakers in our ranks; but, we also have and want those who are just horror film aficionados, mavens and admirers. All it really takes to be a part of the committee is a love of the genre and to watch a lot of horror throughout the year. And, a willingness to vote at the end of the year would be nice as well.

As would be expected, the Fright Meter Awards is heavily into social media. We have a closed discussion group on Facebook. There’s also a Facebook page and Youtube & Twitter accounts, both are linked below along with the website.

For those interested in joining us on our mad crusade to honor the best horror flicks of the year you can contact us through the Facebook page; or, contact directly by emailing our leader Troy at troy@frightmeter.com.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing more of you on board!!!

It’s been a few weeks since the winners of the 2013 Fright Meter Awards were announced. But, I’ve been too busy with other things and those other things have weighted heavy on my mind. So, now that the below picture has been released, I decided to get on the ball regarding this subject.

I’ve listed the nominees with the winners printed in bold type. I’ve also put an * next to the ones I voted for.
