"SCREAM 2009" will also honor the godfather of the modern horror film, George Romero with this year's Scream Mastermind Award. This award is presented to a filmmaker whose unique vision of horror, science fiction and/or fantasy is both critically-acclaimed and culturally significant.

"SCREAM 2009" will celebrate the year of the vampire and the phenomenal popularity of the "Twilight" saga with cast and World Premiere footage from the highly-anticipated "New Moon." In addition, fans will be treated to appearances from the cast and creators of "True Blood" including Alan Ball, Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin, Alexander Skarsgard, Sam Trammell, among others. The celebration continues with a "Battlestar Galactica" cast reunion for a farewell tribute featuring Edward James Olmos, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, James Callis, Kate Vernon, Katee Sackhoff, Michael Trucco Tahmoh Penikett and executive producer David Eick.
