Once again Dear readers, the veritable Horror Meister and Martial Arts buff affords his occasionally
irreverent, but honest and generally lighter hearted set of Movie awards from the "dark side".
This is my spin on this years; good, bad, indifferent and downright awful.
These aren't your usual run of the mill movie award and they certainly aren't the "Oscars". These are the "Skullys". There are NO speeches and NO Michael Moore, so let the frivolities commence...
