2014 Fright Meter Awards Nominations


It's that time of year again! The final set of nominees are in and the votes from the Fright Meter committee are being tabulated as I write this post.

The Fright Meter Awards are presented annually by the FrightMeter Awards Organisation, a non-profit organisation dedicated solely to honouring and recognising excellence within the horror genre. The nominations and winners are determined by members of the Fright Meter Awards Committee.
Members consist of horror fans, bloggers, actors, producers, directors, and others, making the Fright Meter Awards truly the most prestigious horror award given. The Fright Meter Awards aim to select and nominate worthy films regardless of budget, means of release, or popularity.
