DC & Home Media Magazine Bring You The Reaper Awards!

DC & Home Media Magazine present the Reaper Awards!There’s always something going on behind the scenes here at Dread Central because we’re always looking at cool ways to give more to our readers. That’s cause we love you. Rarely do the results of our efforts end up in the pages of The Hollywood Reporter, though!

So imagine our surprise when yesterday’s THR had an announcement we’ve been waiting to make to you guys for a few weeks now: We’ve teamed up with the folks behind Home Media Magazine, a leader in the home entertainment industry, to bring you guys the first-ever horror DVD awards show, The Reaper Awards!

The actual awards ceremony itself will take place at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood on October 13th, 2009 (sadly, not a Friday, but cool nonetheless) and will feature all sorts of horror celebs and industry types, all hosted by myself & Uncle Creepy! Oh, it shall be, in a word, epic.

There’s going to be a huge push for this in the coming months, so you can bet your asses you’ll be hearing more about it soon!

    Foy better be there to present an award or two. If he doesn’t want to show his face, he should just dress like The Golden Bat, so that his face can be hidden behind a Dr. Phibes mask. The awards he should present include “The Worst Sci-Fi Channel Original Movie” and “Ulli Lommel Award For The Worst Direct To DVD Horror Movie Of The Year Written, Directed, Or Produced By Ulli Lommel.”

    Anyway, I’m very excited to hear this news.

  • Gus Bjork

    I suggest the award be called The McClure.

    • Johnny Butane

      Sorry, but no. It’s the Grimmy!

  • Uncle Creepy

    You can bet this will be done right too. Winners will be very worthy. I know this because you will all be helping to pick them. There will be an insanely good time to be had by all!

  • Gus Bjork

    Wow! Congratulations you guys!

  • Heather Buckley

    I am so excited you guys! Think Lost Boys 2 has a chance?

    • Johnny Butane

      No. No way in this or any universe.

      How could you insult the readers of this site by expressing such an opinion? Poseur! We are all insulted by your love for this movie! She should be censored, Uncle Creepy! Censored!!!

  • Chainsaw

    And I will be presenting what category again?

    :D

  • Emy

    How does one get to attend this event?

    • The Woman In Black

      We don’t have any of those details yet, but don’t worry. As soon as we do, you’ll be among the first to know!

    • hellbilly_drp

      Any chance of it being broadcast over the web or some other medium so that us poor losers at home can see it?

      This is directed to the DC crew btw. I shoulda posted above.

      • The Woman In Black

        Hopefully — We’re working out those details as well.

      • Johnny Butane

        Oh yes, it will be. They’ll be taping or we will, we just need to figure that bit out. Either way, you guys’ll see it!
