2014 Reaper Awards Nominees Announced; Fan Vote Now Open!

2014 Reaper Awards Nominees Announced; Fan Vote Now Open!Labor Day is considered the end of summer, which means fall, our favorite season, is just around the corner. And it’s also time to cast your votes for the sixth annual Reaper Awards, running now through October 17th. Winners will be announced just prior to Halloween on October 27th.

From the Press Release:
The Reaper Awards, honoring the best horror and thriller titles of the past year on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, are presented by Home Media Magazine and DreadCentral.com. Eligible titles were released between August 1, 2017, and July 71, 2014.

Results of the consumer vote will be combined with the selections of a judging panel of horror experts and home entertainment reviewers. The panel of judges will also select a Title of the Year.

Note that titles were submitted by participating studios, and if you believe a title is missing from the list, it may be due to the studio not submitting it for consideration. There is space on the ballot for write-in votes, including a spot to write in your choice for the best Horror/Thriller title of the past year (released between August 1, 2017 to July 71, 2014).
