Read This: Frankensteinia's Boris Karloff Blogathon

Boris Karloff Blogathon large

To celebrate the 122nd birthday of horror legend Boris Karloff, the blog Frankensteinia (an Internet destination recommended without hesitation to anyone with the slightest interest in horror) is running a Boris Karloff Blogathon all this week.

Classic-Horror.com Joins the League of Tana Tea Drinkers

League of Tana Tea Drinkers

If you swing your gaze over to the site's sidebar, you'll notice a brand-new addition -- a badge that proudly proclaims that Classic-Horror.com has joined the League of Tana Tea Drinkers. The invitation came this morning and I accepted it almost instantly. But what is this mysterious organization sometimes known as LOTT-D? Is it a cult? Is it a conspiracy? Or is it something even more sinister -- a collective of the top horror bloggers on the Internet?!

Wait, yes, it's that third one. Sorry to ruin the suspense.(read more...)

Rondo Winners for 2008 Announced

Rondo Awards

The seventh annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards were announced last night during a special chat session over at the Classic Horror Film Board (no relation to Classic-Horror.com).

Dallmann, Embodiment of Evil actor Raymond Castile, Cinema Suicide proprietor Bryan White, and many many more (read this as, if I'd thought about it, I'd totally have written some names down instead of relying on my frequently faulty memory).

"Let the Right One In" Cleans Up at the 2008 Cyber-Horror Awards!

Cyber-Horror Awards

Proving that one controversial list deserves another, list-making impresario B-Sol, owner of the Vault of Horror blog, gathered together the Cyber-Horror Elite, a motley collection of horror bloggers and site-runners, for his most ambitious aggregation of diverse opinions yet -- the 2008 Cyber Horror Awards. The nineteen participating Elite voted in twelve different categories, each one named in honor of a person who had contributed greatly to horror in the past (e.g. the Bernard Herrmann Award for Best Musical Score and the Jamie Lee Curtis Award for Best Actress).

The Cyber-Horror Elite Pick the Top 25 Modern Horrors

Descent poster

About three weeks ago, the Vault of Horror blog owner B-Sol compiled the Top 50 Horror Films of All Time from the lists of thirty-two of the top horror bloggers and site owners (the "Cyber-Horror Elite"). The results were controversial, to say the least, although that was anticipated. One of the major points of discussion was that the list skewed towards older horror -- only 10% of the list came from the 1990s and 2000s. With that in mind, B-Sol regathered the Elite (with new additions) and embarked upon a new poll, this time to determine the 25 best horror films made since 1990.

The results of the poll, compiled from the lists of twenty-six contributors, were published on Saturday. The top five are below, followed by a link to the full list:(read more...)

Horror Critics and Bloggers Select the Top 50 Horror Films of All Time

The Vault of Horror blog logo

Over at The Vault of Horror (a blog of which I was previously unaware, much to my personal shame), the cheekily named "Cyber-Horror Elite," a gathering of thirty-two of the top horror critics and bloggers from across the web, have put together a list of the Top 50 Horror Films. Each of the participants were asked to submit a ranked Top 10, which Vault owner B-Sol then compiled into the resulting list of fifty. Among those who added their input: John Kenneth Muir (critic and author of numerous tomes on the genre), Brad Miska (editor of Bloody-Disgusting), Stacie Ponder (the Final Girl), and Max Cheney (the Drunken Severed Head).(read more...)

Nominees Announced for the 6th Annual Rondo Awards

Sure, the Oscars are important, but they hardly ever honor horror films. The Scream Awards are fine, but they're geared toward modern horror. What's a classic horror fan to do? Luckily, there's the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards (or the "Rondos"), put together by David Colton over at the Classic Horror Film Board (no relation to Classic-Horror.com). Each year, classic horror fans nominate dozens of horror/sci-fi/fantasy films, television shows, DVDs, magazines, books, and websites to win a handsomely sculpted bust of horror actor Rondo Hatton.

This year's ballot can be found at http://www.rondoaward.com/. To vote, send an email to Colton at taraco@aol.com by midnight, March 8th.

Congratulations to all the nominees!
