This past Friday night, September 23rd, the Halloween season officially kicked off in style with the 2011 Eyegore Awards held at the Globe Theater at Universal Studios in Hollywood as part of the opening night of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights. Hosted by genre veteran and previous Eyegore winner Corey Feldman (who was joined on stage by a wisecracking zombie scarecrow), many of horror's biggest names came out to celebrate our favorite time of year and pay homage to several of the genre's biggest contributors and newcomers alike.
It's that time of year again. No, not back to school time or the start of the NFL season. I can't argue that both of those events do bring a smile to my face, but I'm talking about something rooted much deeper in the darkness. I'm talking about the announcement of the Eyegore Award winners!

Once again, I’m reminded of the fact that someone out there liked Halloween II, and here’s the news to prove it.
Never mind his six, count 'em, six Oscars, come October 2nd Rick Baker will be getting his due from Universal and horror fans everywhere as he's set to take home the Chiller-Eyegore Award for his incomparable designs and makeup effects that have created indelible imagery in over forty-two horror films!
