And now, here I am, announcing the nominees for the fourth annual awards. I'd like to thank all the writers who get into the fun of this whole thing, and who take time out to vote each year. I'd like to specifically thank those who helped me put together the nominations this year: Heather Buckley of Dread Central, Stoker Award-winning author Vince Liaguno, League of Tana Tea Drinkers head honcho John Cozzoli, Christine Hadden of Fangoria.com, and Unkle Lancifer of Kindertrauma.
This year turned out to have a better crop of horror flicks than I originally thought, since I snuck in a whole bunch of last-minute viewing during the nominating process. We've got quite a fascinating list of nominees, which you can check out in its entirety over at the official Cyber Horror Awards website. In the meantime, allow me to whet your appetite with this year's nominees for the Val Lewton Award for Best Horror Film of 2011:
- Attack the Block, Studio Canal
- Troll Hunter, Filmkameratene A/S
- Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, Reliance Big Pictures/Loubyloo Productions
- Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Miramax/FilmDistrict
- Insidious, FilmDistrict/Stage 6 Films
Expect the winners in all 13 categories to be tabulated and announced by the middle of next month. In the meantime, I'll be sitting back and letting those ballots keep rolling in...
