Screamfest 2016 Award Winners Announced!


The 16th annual Screamfest Horror Film Festival came to a close last week with the announcement of its Skully Award Show winners. The Pierce Brosnan produced thriller My Father Die took home Best Picture and Best Director honors for writer/director Sean Brosnan.

“Big Bang Theory” star Johnny Galecki won Best Actor for his role in writer/director Babby Miller’s The Master Cleanse and Mimosa Williamo (tastiest name ever) earned Best Actress honors for acclaimed Finnish true-crime thriller Lake Bodom.

We were beyond bummed not to see Richard Bates Jr.’s Trash Fire recognized. Not only did the film feature powerful performances by leads Adrian Grenier (”Entourage”) and Angela Trimbur (The Final Girls), it arguably had one of the best dark comedy scripts in festival history.

Best Actor – Johnny Galecki – The Master Cleanse
