MONDO RONDO! HATTON You Oughtta Check This Out?

"Long live the Rondos!" - Ain't It Cool News

"I love Rondo!" - Guillermo del Toro

Forget the Oscars--forget the Emmys--it's never too early to start thinking about what really matters. Namely, the next Rondos!

Growing in popularity by leaps and bounds is this increasingly prestigious annual award which was created by fans (David Colton and Kerry Gammill) for fans (this means you!) and is a fond tribute to the one and only Rondo Hatton of THE BRUTE MAN fame. The eerily lifelike bust itself was sculpted by illustrator Gammill, and cast by modeler Tim Lindsey.

Everything you need to know about the Rondos, including past winners, upcoming unsanity, and tons of other stuff, can be found at The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards website. And to find out how the current nomination process is going (and maybe even participate in it yourself), along with a crypt-load of other creepy threads on the subject, check out the Rondo folder at the Classic Horror Film Board.

All together now: "Da doo ron Rondo, da doo ron ron!" (I meant for you to groan!)
