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.

TAD Awards 2011.

The awards for Toronto After Dark were announced today on their website. The audience award for Best Feature was tallied from over 3,000 votes this year. Here below are the winners.




In the shorts category, the awards are split up into two categories, Canadian and International.

For the Canucks, festival circuit favourite The Legend of Beaver Dam took Gold, and Matthew Nayman's Blind Spot and Chris Nash's My Main Squeeze went home with Silver and Bronze, respectively.

In International, the devilishly cute animated short Nursery Crimes took top honours, followed by two of my favourites, Spanish splatterfest Brutal Relax and Steve Daniels' Dirty Silverware.

There were several individual awards handed out this year, based on ballots cast by All-Access pass holders, with Xavier Gens' post-apocalyptic film The Divide and Lucky McKee's The Woman taking a good share of them. Click here to see the full list.

There were a few films that got shut out that I would've liked to have seen recognized somehow, but I guess that just shows how strong the lineup was this year.

FATHER'S DAY is THE GREATEST TROMA FILM OF ALL TIME... I know that's not saying much, but it's good, really.
