SYRACUSE, NY, October 31, 2001 -- Alvin Ecarma's "Lethal Force" and Eric Stanze's "Scrapbook" tied for both Best B-Movie and Best Director honors in the third annual B-Movie Film Festival Awards. The awards were originally voted on prior to the festival's anticipated premiere, which was scheduled for September 15-16 in Syracuse, NY, but was postponed and later cancelled following the events of September 11. The festival organizers decided it was appropriate to hold the announcement of the award winners in time for Halloween, keeping in the tradition of the holiday and its unique connection to B-Movies.
"Scrapbook," a grisly drama about a serial killer who forces his captive to keep a diary of her imprisonment, won two additional B-Movie Awards for Tommy Biondo's screenplay and for Biondo's performance as Best B-Movie Villain (Sadly, 26 year old Tommy Biondo died from injuries sustained while on a shoot in Minnesota only days after SCRAPBOOK completed post-production. He never saw the finished movie). "Lethal Force," an adventure flick which paid tribute to the martial arts and blaxploitation genres, picked up the awards for Best Cinematography and Best Action Sequence.
The acting awards were spread across four different films. Neil Maffin was cited as Best Actor for his role in "A Moment in Time" and Lorri Bagley won Best Actress for her performance in "Peroxide Passion." Mike Legge won Best Supporting Actor honors in the comedy "Curtains" and Paulina Galvez was named Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Tatawo," a Spanish drama that won the Best Foreign Film Award.
The Australian oceanographic journey "Aliens of the Sea" snagged the Best Documentary prize, while the reggae soundtrack for the Jamaican thriller "Third World Cop" captured the award for Best Musical Score. Other winning films included "Beware" for Best Editing, "Cremains" for Best Set Design, "Biohazardous" for Best Make-up, "Creatures of the Mist" for Best Special Effects, "Bucky McSnead" as Best Short Subject and "Ornaments" as Best Animated Short.
The B-Movie Film Festival was sponsored by Sub Rosa Studios of Syracuse, NY, and is scheduled to resume next year. For more information on the festival, visit the web site http://www.b-movie.com.
