The Rondos are Coming, The Rondos are Coming!

We’re just days away from the announcement of the ballot for this year’s Rondo Awards.


The Rondo Awards are a yearly award to celebrate Classic Horror Excellence in the world of entertainment. This is the 8th year running for the Rondos – what started as a small “fan” award by Dave Colton on the AOL message boards has grown into a nationally recognized and celebrated event. The Rondos, unlike many other awards, are a fan voted award – the ballot is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to vote.

The categories are varied and seem to grow each year. 
Last year’s official categories were:

Best Film of 2008
