We’ve assembled a wonderful jury from every corner of the horror community, including filmmaker, critics, writers, podcasters, artists, and academics. The nominees are drawn from the HMP host and listener Top 10 lists of 2016 and the jury has voted on those nominees in traditional awards show categories from “Best Actress” to “Best Picture.”

After that, your HMP hosts give away their own special “Dead Serious” awards where we get a little more out of the box and award films for their best “Beastly Freaks” or use of “Horror in the Daylight.”

He is also the mastermind behind DVDInfatuation.com, a movie review blog where he is watching and posting one review every day until he reaches at least 2,500 movie reviews.
