The Cyber-Horror Awards Nominees

CHAThe Vault of Horror’s B-Sol continues to torture himself by asking some very opinionated members of what he’s dubbed the “Cyber-Horror Elite” to participate in another round of voting.  But this time, we’re not focusing on the Top anything of All Time, but a sort of horror version of the Oscars.  Without the Bruce Valance jokes.  Here, I’ll let B-Sol explain:

The Vault of Horror presents the 2008 Cyber Horror Awards–the first-ever horror film awards decided by the online horror-blogging/writing community. I’m very excited to have enlisted the help of some of the best horror movie bloggers/writers on the web today in making this project a reality. With any luck, this year will only be the beginning…

The winners are going to be announced on the evening of March 1st, but here’s a list of the nominees to whet your appetite.  And keep checking the Cyber-Horror Awards website where you can also find this list of nominees, along with videos, etc., from the nominated features.    Unfortunately, our zombie brethren didn’t get much love, but then, it wasn’t their best year for new movies.

Check out the noms after the jump.
