During the 4th annual Rabbit In Red Awards fans voted for their favourites in 7 categories including Horror Artist, Scream Queen, Horror Hunk and more. Voters were entered into a prize draw to win a $50 Fright Rags gift certificate.
Now, here are the results…
Horror Artist of the Year
Daniel started doing horror art in the ’90s and has been a self-employed illustrator since 2014! He merges horror with cartoon pop references for some bloody fun results. This Exorcist/Sleeping Beauty mash-up is his favourite piece to date.
Flashback Film of the Year
Halloween 2 (1981)
Rick Rosenthal (hubby of fan favourite Nancy Stephens) takes over directing duties from John Carpenter for this simple yet suspenseful follow-up taking place the same night as the 1978 original. The kills, which are doubled, and a tad more violent than the first film, lead up to an exhilirating final chase sequence that make this Halloween sequel one of the best in the franchise.

Jennifer’s Body (2009)

Scream Queen of the Year
Kyle Richards / Lindsey Wallace / Halloween Kills (2021)
This housewife proved she’s still got it, returning as Lindsey Wallace, the role she first played at the age of 9 in Carpenter’s Halloween. The general consensus is that she was the best part of Halloween Kills and fans are thrilled to hear she’ll be returning for the final entry next year.

Horror Hunk of the Year
Froy Gutierrez / Wes Scott / Initiation (2021)
Froy turns up the heat as Wes Scott in Initiation, John Berardo’s fun new slasher film that references our favourite ’90s throwbacks. Lucky for us, Froy shows off some skin before delivering an epic death scene.

Indie Horror Short of the Year
Inspired by true events, this Australian short film will send shivers down your spine and make you second guess your next camping adventure. During the premiere at MonsterFest, Button Man had back-to-back sold-out sessions, making it the only film at the festival to sell out not only once but twice!

Indie Feature Film of the Year
Horror icon Felissa Rose stars in this ’80s summer slasher throwback that features a masked murderer stalking camp counsellors. You’ll have a fun time guessing who’s behind the creepy devil mask!
Initiation directed by John Berardo
The Haddonfield Nightmare directed by Braden Timmons
Horror Film of the Year
Halloween Kills may have received mixed reviews from fans but there’s no denying the film’s intensity. The cinematography is next level and the score is not only an expansion of 2018’s version but also that of the first two films. Michael Myers is depicted as a true force of nature and having the original cast members return was a treat!
Candyman directed by Nia DaCosta
Last Night in Soho directed by Edgar Wright
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It
A Quiet Place 2
Slumber Party Massacre
