Zombie Hunters: City Of The Dead didn’t take top spot at this year’s Rondo Awards for best independent film, but we did get honorable mention. That’s not too shabby considering 1. Zombie Hunters isn’t a film at all and 2. we were up against Christopher Walken reading Edgar Allen Poe’s classic, The Raven. The top dog? SPINE TINGLER: The William Castle Story (Directed by Jeffrey Schwarz).
Zombies faired better. World Zombie Day took first place for fan event of the year. That bodes well for us. Where there’s Zombies, there are Zombie Hunters.
The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards were created by David Colton and Kerry Gammill at the Classic Horror Film Boards in 2002. The awards are fan-based, and have no connection to any commercial sponsor. Anyone in fandom can vote or propose nominees.
Thanks to everyone who voted for us. Next year DVD 2 will be eligible for nominations, so let’s keep our cold, dead fingers crossed.
