In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

I Be Frightening!

I got more good news today as I discovered Corey over at Evil On Two Legs nominated me for a Fantastically Frightening Award. How can I not beam with pride when the trophy looks like THIS?!

So, in acceptance of this, I, in turn, want to nominate a few blogs that I didn't mention when I naming names as part of my Kreativ Blogger a few weeks back.

If you don't know what Halloween Addict's favourite day of the year is... well... you're just not very smart I guess. AllHallowSteve has the line on all things pertaining to the 31th of October. I have fond memories of checking in on his regular Trick 'r Treat updates while he - like a ton of us horror fans - waited patiently through delay after delay.

Mad Mad Mad Mad Movies is run by two crazy cats by the name of The Duke of DVD and The Vicar of VHS. It is another one of my favourite nostalgia websites and their expansive and witty reviews of horror gems from my childhood number in the hundreds.

Chris Hallock of All Things Horror is a filmmaker and regular reader of mine. He also organizes a lot of film events in the New England area. I know how much work goes into running these things, so I have mad respect for the dude. Oh, and he also dropped a One Lovely Blog nom on me. Awesome!

Things That Don't Suck bestowed upon me a Kreativ Blogger, so now I'm reciprocating. The curator is a fellow named Evil Dead Junkie which should let you know that we are on the same page. Currently, he is in the middle of "Bigelow Week", which is pretty fucking bad-ass if you ask me.

I'm pretty sure that No Room In Hell has already received this award, but I'm putting them on anyway to remind me to thank them for including me in their "What Scares You?" post a few weeks back AND for awarding little ol' me a Zombie Chicken.

"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words."

Once again, thanks to everyone for the props and continuing to give me fertile surfing grounds on a daily basis.

Dont' forget Mike! He's my partner on ATH.

Thanks a lot, Jay! I've been following your blog for a while, even before Mike and I started ours.

It means a lot!

I love The Horror Section. It has a special place in my heart because of the VHS connection.

Hey Jay!

Catching up on unfinished business: Never said a proper thank you for the FFA.

Sooooo THANK you!
