Reaper Awards '09!

I bet you've been wondering - for a long time now - when the hell we're finally going to have an award show for horror DVDs and Blu-Rays... Wonder no more, friend, because last night such an award show went down! The Reaper Awards popped off its inaugural show last night in L.A., giving out "Grimmys" to the most deserving titles in the horror/fantasy/sci-fi genres. Apparently, the HELLRAISER box set was the big winner, walking away with "Best in Show" and "Best Packaging". That's like winning motherf*cking Best Picture and Best Director at the Oscars, yo!

Check out the list of other winners below. (And yes, the "Grimmys" are trophies fashioned like miniature Grim Reapers.)
