Full Moon's 4th and 7X7 Link Award!

Okay, breaking in at the halfway point of the April 2012 A-Z Blogging Challenge with a non A-Z Forbidden Sunday Post - but this couldn't wait!

A very cool blog called Full Moon Reviews reached its 4th Anniversary this month, and gave out some awards to celebrate.

My Austrian blog buddy Maynard - guru of the awesome Horror Movie Diary - got one of the awards - congratulations Mr. Morrissey - and he has now passed the award on to me!

Much like Gremlins, this award comes with three rules:

1. Tell something that no one else knows about you.

I once sat in 70's drive-in filmmaker Earl Owensby's office in the 90's and pitched him a horror movie script - which he didn't go for.

2. Link to one of the posts that I personally think best fits the following categories

- Most Beautiful Piece:

My Halloween Horror Hotties edition featuring the most babe-a-licious horror series: Friday the 13th!

31 Days of Psychos!

- Most Helpful Piece

Matt Harding has a viral video out there called Where the Hell is Matt? and in a post from August 5th, 2011 - I answered that question - at least for July 27th, 2011...

I Know Where the Hell Matt Is!

- Most Popular/Least Popular Piece

My Set Invasion of Piranha 3-DD - which apparently scooped the web with the very first pictures from the set...10920 views!

Set Invasion: Piranha 3-DD!

The third edition of my weekly Maniacal Movie Poster Monday department has only been viewed 2 times, and no comments.

Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #3!

- Most Controversial Piece

My Set Invasion of Piranha 3-DD - which garnered me my first and only (and erased) negative comment from somebody who really hated that I had posted this stuff - and got madder at me as the comment went on.

Set Invasion: Piranha 3-DD!

- Most Surprisingly Successful Piece

My Police Academy overview from last April's A-Z Blogging Challenge is rivalling the Piranha 3-DD Set Invasion post - it now stands at 10,021 views!

April 2011 A-Z: P is for Police Academy!

- Most Underrated Piece

I think it's the lack of love for my review of the appalling Asian Women-in-Prison movie Tortured Angels...

Tortured Angels

- Most Pride-Worthy Piece

I am very proud of this revised version of my Vincent Price Spotlight post:

A Price Far Above Rubies!

3. Never Get Them Wet.

No, wait, that is a Gremlin rule.

3. Pass this award on to to 7 bloggers.

Luana at Skating Buffalo

Matty at Filmmatic

Kaijinu at Sticky Red: A Bodycount Compendium

James at Random Ramblings

Joe at Joseph W Richardson

Michelle at The Girl Who Loves Horror

Retro Zombie at Retro Zombie

Until next post, when A-Z is back in charge, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. Thanks for the award! One think no one knows about me -- I can play The Pineapple Rag on the piano.

  2. Sweet. Thanks for the link/award thingy!

  3. Oh wow, I am wicked jealous of your Piranha 3DD set invasion. I would love to be able to do that - but not officially, you know? I'd want to be like you and sneak around and steal pictures. Sounds like a lot more fun.

    And thanks for the award! I'm kind of interested to see what my most popular posts are.

    1. Michele - thanks! Yeah, that was a completely unplanned turn of events that sent my pageviews through the roof when the page was leaked out to dreadcentral.com - then everybody linked to it - and my traffic went through the roof!

      You're welcome - I'm a new visitor to your blog - but I'm already enjoying it a lot - and hope you're going to be in Project Terrible with us!

  4. Whoa, thanx for mentioning me and my tiny blog. Really appreciate that, Craig!!

    1. Tiny blog nothing! Blogosphere travel destination! I love the Diary!

  5. Thanks for the award, Craig. And congrats on your acceptance. Very interesting choices.

    1. No problem - glad to have "met" you in this roundabout way!
