The Reaper Awards is an annual awards show presented by Home Media Magazine and Dread Central to honor the best horror genre home video releases.[1] Fans can vote online for their favorite DVD and Blu-ray releases in categories selected by the show's judges. Winners receive the "Grimmy Award", a hand-crafted Grim Reaper trophy.[2]

History[edit]

The first award ceremony launched at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, CA on October 13, 2009. The ceremony was originally closed to the public, but a limited number of tickets were later offered for sale. The pre-dinner cocktail reception was still reserved for industry insiders.[3] It was held there again October 12, 2010.[4][5]

Judges include Steve Barton of Dread Central and Ryan Turek of Shock Till You Drop.[6] Past celebrity judges have included filmmakers Roger Corman[7] and Mick Garris.[8]

The award itself was designed and sculpted by FearWerx and EMCE Toys.[9]
