The Ed Wood Awards honored (or maybe dishonored is a better word) the worst horror films ever made. MidMar writers nominated the films and MidMar readers cast their ballots for categories such as Worst Teenage Horror Film, and Vegetables Most Past Their Expiration Date. The Awards were hosted by indi-filmmakers Ted A. Bohus and Fred Olen Ray, who had been FANEX regulars since FANEX 2. The Ed Wood Awards were held Saturday night after the impressive Laemmle Awards. It was late, the crowd was tired and very possibly drunk and a good time was had by one and all.
In addition to The Ed Wood Awards, the DVD contains a short film done by The Horror and Fantasy Film Society, The History of the Horror Film and directed and edited by Susan Svehla. It was filmed in spectacular Dollovision, and if you want to know what that is, you'll have to watch the DVD. Also included is a panel discussion from FANEX 6, Guilty Pleasures of the Horror Film, featuring horror film fanzine editors and members of The Horror and Fantasy Film Society. We promise you will not believe your eyes and ears when you hear some of these doozies! The Ed Wood Awards are not relevant or about those deep, depressing issues that the film festivals love so much. Rather this DVD is a love letter to those guerilla filmmakers who didn't make great art, but lovable trash?and managed to brighten the day for their audiences and managed to give people a few much needed laughs, and that's not really such a bad legacy to have.
