Get Ready to 'SCREAM' With First Annual Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy Awards Show From Spike TV

'SCREAM 2006' Set for October in Los Angeles

"It's hard to imagine that the multi-billion dollar male-driven horror, sci-fi and fantasy industries have not been recognized in a big mainstream way until now," says Casey Patterson, Executive Producer and Senior Vice President Event Production and Talent Development for Spike TV. "We only need to look to the extraordinary recent box office success of horror and fantasy films to realize that the time has come for SCREAM."

Featuring unique categories, a diverse mixture of popular icons and outrageous creators, "The SCREAM Awards" will honor both the legends and the newest and hottest in horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres across a number of entertainment platforms including movies, television, video games, comic books and music. In addition to recognizing icons and pioneers who have influenced and shaped the industry, the annual awards will also feature several fan-based categories that represent viewer's personal favorites. Categories will include everything from the traditional "Best Horror Film," "Best Comic Book Artist," "Best Special Effects," "Best Comic to Screen Adaptation," and "Best Makeup" to the more scream-worthy offbeat awards including, "Best Blood Curdling Scream," "Best Superhero," "Sickest Slasher," "Highest Body Count in a Movie," "Best Flesh Scene," "Best Jump from Your Seat Scene," "Scream Queen," "Best Sci-Fi TV Show" and "Best Sci-Fi Movie."

"This show will be designed to not only appeal to the hard core dedicated fans of horror, sci-fi, fantasy and cult -- but will also capture the attention of a broader audience that is intrigued by the genre. Honoring such innovative and imaginative industries, gives us unlimited creative opportunities to really make this award show jump out from all the others," says Michael Levitt, Executive Producer.

Michael Levitt, Casey Patterson and Cindy Levitt are co-creators and will serve as Executive Producers of Spike TV's "SCREAM 2006."
