Stanley Awards Horror Brunch
Sunday brought out the dregs in all of us as we trudged toward the Stanley's MacGregor Ballroom for the Horror Brunch awards. Filmmakers, producers, and horror fans filled up on Soylent Green Smoothies, Psycho Pancakes, Hannibal Lecter's Favorite Egg Scramble (with Chianti Salsa), and Exorcist Granola, all set to the tunes of several classic horror soundtracks, such as The Shining, The Thing, Rosemary's Baby, and Dawn of the Dead. Sadly, Mick Garris couldn't make it, but sent along a recorded introduction for his friend Joe Dante, who accepted the festival's very first Master of Horror award.
