The Tenth Annual Rondo Hatton Awards

Voting is underway for the 10th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards! For those unfamiliar with the Rondo Awards it was created in 2002 by David Colton and Kerry Gammill at the Classic Horror Film Boards . The awards are fan-based, and have no connection to any commercial sponsor. Anyone in fandom can vote or propose nominees.

Nominees for the Rondo are selected from suggestions by horror fans, pros and enthusiasts offered all year at the Classic Horror Film Boards . Each year's nominees are finalized by classic horror fan David Colton with the help of more than 20 classic horror fans from around the world with expertise in all parts of fandom.

You can see this years ballot by visiting the Rondo Hatton Awards . I voted for my friend Peter Kollarik for "Monster Kid of the Year". Peter is a passionate monster fan and a veritable mine of information on the stop motion work of Willis O'Brien and Ray Harryhausen!

If you'd like to visit Pete's pages on Facebook here are the links: Péter Kollárik Facebook ... Pete for "Monster Kid of The Year"!

As for myself I've been busy sculpting a new Kong bust. Here is a wip photo of what I've gotten done so far.

There is still a tremendous amount of skin detailing and fur work that needs to be done. The native in his mouth also needs to be completed.


  1. Brian, this truly is amazing work! I can't wait to see it all finished!

    I will go check out your buddy's work.

    Happy Week!

  2. Thanks for the vote, Brian!
