Rondo Hatton

Greetings, classic horror-comedy fans! I'm pleased to announce that the "Scared Silly" blog has been nominated for a 2010 Rondo award.

The Rondo Awards are named after Rondo Hatton (you can learn more abour Rondo here) and are awards given to those who in some way are keeping the love for and appreciation of classic horror alive. You can learn more details about the awards here.

"Scared Silly" has been nominated in the "best blog" category, and it is my hope that if you like this blog, you will vote for it.

Of course, "Scared Silly" isn't the only reason to vote. There are so many great nominees in so many categories, including several friends of "Scared Silly."

On the comic book front, my pals Thomas Hall and Daniel Bradford have been nominated for their comic book "Robot 13," which is a must for fans of the Frankenstein monster and the mythological monsters of Ray Harryhausen. Read about their nomination here.

Other friends who have been nominated (in various categories including best blog) include "Zombo's Closet of Horror," "Monsterama" and "Frankensteinia."

I should mention that Pierre Fournier of "Frankensteinia" also got a special nomination for "Best Event" due to his wonderful "Boris Karloff Blogathon," which "Scared Silly" took part in.

So you can vote for as few or as many categories as you like. I encourage you to take a good look at the ballot, and once you make your choices, email your votes to and be sure to include your name (the awards has a one vote per person rule) by Midnight, April 3rd, 2010.

Meanwhile, here's a nice montage of Rondo Hatton movie posters:
