Home Media Magazine and DreadCentral.com Announce Second Annual Reaper Awards with Celebrity Guest Judge Roger Corman

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Home entertainment industry leader Home Media Magazine and the horror insiders at DreadCentral.com have again partnered to present the second annual Reaper Awards — honoring horror on home video.

“There’s nothing scarier than watching a horror movie at home on disc with the lights out, and we aim to honor that tradition.”

Oct. 12, 2010, at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, “The Grimmys” will be awarded to the best horror DVDs and Blu-ray Discs of the past year.

“We’re dying to see who wins, following a successful event in 2009,” says Stephanie Prange, the event’s executive producer and editor in chief of Home Media Magazine. “There’s nothing scarier than watching a horror movie at home on disc with the lights out, and we aim to honor that tradition.”

“Grimmy” winners will be celebrated in the Roosevelt’s famed Blossom Room with a cocktail party and dinner, followed by an awards show featuring celebrity presenters.

A panel of judges will choose nominees in eight categories, with winners determined by an online vote held Aug. 30 to Oct. 1 at www.ReaperAwards.com. In addition, consumers can vote in three categories to pick the titles most anticipated for the fourth quarter.

Judges include Home Media Magazine publisher Thomas K. Arnold and reviews editor John Latchem; Steve “Uncle Creepy” Barton from DreadCentral.com; Brad “Mr. Disgusting” Miska of Bloody-Disgusting.com; ShockTillYouDrop.com’s Ryan Turek aka “Ryan Rotten”; Staci Wilson from Horror.com; Lawrence Raffel of Fearnet.com; and a special celebrity judge, filmmaker/producer/legend Roger Corman, whose cult-classic films are being re-released on DVD and Blu-ray as part of the “Roger Corman's Cult Classics” line from Shout! Factory and Vivendi.
