I'd like to thank...

Still week 1 and the year's already getting exciting. I'm suddenly the proud owner of a 'Lovely Blog Award'. Was rather hoping to win best 'Creepy Classics Blog' but this chintzy prize is still massively welcome.

A huge pre-recorded thanks to Professor Brian O'Blivion, who does such sterling work down at The Cathode Ray Mission. Twas he who awarded me it. In accordance with his wishes, I'm passing on 15 awards to other blogs that tickle my many fancies.

In alphabetical order (so I don't have to pick favourites)...

The Film Connoisseur
Frankensteinia - The Frankenstein Blog
Held Over - nostalgic newspaper movie ads
MONDO 70: a wild world of cinema
Monster Brains - a never ending celebration of monsters
The Morbid Imagination - horror and art
Same Hat! - manga madness
Saturday Morning Blog - the best and worst of animation!
Shock Room
Something To Sing About - SE Asian cinema
Tokyo Scum Brigade (adult content!)
Vintage Horror Movies
When Is Evil Cool?
Zombo's Closet of Horror

Now, where to display it? Must be visible over my shoulder for any TV interviews...


11/01/10: Award update! I've received a second Lovely blog Award, this time from Ninja Dixon. Once again, a wholehearted thank you. There's a whole lot of blog-love going around. Bizarrely, this particular award appears to have been creeping around the blogaverse for over a year!


  1. Thank you for the praise. The fact that you named your blog after the film The Black Hole...Awesome! One of my favorite films from childhood. Add to it the incredible content you write and post...great stuff! Thank you! Looking forward to more.

  2. Super! This beats Total Film's lame award by far. Thank you. Coming from a superlative blogger like yourself, this award means a lot to me.

  3. a million thanks Mark!

    i was just the winner of yet another award this morning and you'll be on the short list of who I'm passing it on to. sorry it's not the 'creepy classics award' though.

    keep up the great work!

  4. Thanks Mark for the award Mark! Its an honor comming from such an esteemed blogger as yourself!

    Great collection of reviews! I like diving in old movies as well, some good stuff hidden in the past! Gotta keep diggin...in the black hole of movie universes!

  5. Thank you so much!

    And the Barbarella pix are wonderful!

  6. Hey, Mark! Thanks for the nod, and the, err, cup full of roses. Which is creepy in itself, so let's just pretend it's the Creepy Classics Award.

    Keep up the madness!

  7. To think that actual respectable people are reading our blog! Your support means a lot. Expect great dividends in the new year...
