"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.

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.
