Once again, Brian Solomon (from The Vault of Horror blog) has assumed the burden of using the disparate opinions of over 40 horror bloggers to determine the winners of The 2009 Cyber Horror Awards.
Here are the nominees, my choices and the winners. Be sure to visit http://cyberhorrorawards.blogspot.com/ for Brian's commentary on why the winners deserved to win.
My Vote - Drag Me to Hell
I voted for Best Visual Effects in a Horror film. Read into that what you will.
My Vote - Gareth Stover, Halloween 2
Nathan Amondson, Blood: The Last Vampire
Drag Me to Hell took place in some houses and a bank. Halloween 2 covered the gamut from hospitals to the inside of Michael's head. No contest.
My Vote - Lene Bruksas, Ragnhild Prestholt, Gudmund Saksvik & Elisabeth Haugan Sorensen, Dead Snow
Scott Stoddard, Friday the 13th
I voted for Nazi zombies over talking goats - and I don't take it back.
Bruno Coulais, Coraline
Jeff Grace, I Sell the Dead
I didn't have strong feelings in the category, so I didn't vote.
Isis Mussenden, Drag Me to Hell
Katia Stano, Jennifer’s Body
Once again, the zombies won. Go figure. ;)
Daniel Landin, The Uninvited
Peter Deming, Drag Me to Hell
Sharone Meir, Last House on the Left
Zoran Popovic, Grace
Love it or hate it, Antichrist is a great looking film.
My Vote - Vera Farmiga, Orphan
Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer’s Body
Danielle Harris, Halloween 2
Ok-bin Kim, Thirst
Lorna Raver's performance was too over-the-top for me, but I'm unsurprised she won.
My Vote - Brad Dourif, Halloween 2
Brian Cox, Trick ‘r Treat
Kyle Gallner, A Haunting in Connecticut
Noah Sagan, Deadgirl
Another unsurprising winner, but too comedic to win my vote in the Cyber Horror Awards.
My Vote - Willem Dafoe, Antichrist
Dylan Baker, Trick 'r Treat
Kang-Ho Song, Thirst
Peter Saarsgard, Orphan
See my previous comment.
Alison Lohman, Drag Me to Hell
Emily Browning, The Uninvited
Jordan Ladd, Grace
Megan Fox, Jennifer’s Body
Isabelle Fuhrman did a great job. I never saw the final twist coming, yet it made perfect sense.
As I stated in my review of Triangle, I'm a fan of non-linear, recursive storytelling. Trick ‘r Treat won my next three votes for pulling this off really well.
Craig Rosenberg, Doug Miro & Carlo Bernard, The Uninvited
Diablo Cody, Jennifer’s Body
Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick, Zombieland
Sam & Ivan Raimi, Drag Me to Hell
Chan-Wook Park, Thirst
Paul Solet, Grace
Ruben Fleischer, Zombieland
Sam Raimi, Drag Me to Hell
Drag Me to Hell
