Vintage Video Of The Week : Horror Hall Of Fame 3!

With the Academy Awards airing tonight, it seems only fitting that this week we take a look back at the 1992 Horror Hall Of Fame show, the third of only three Oscar style awards shows that paid tribute to all things horror. Hosted by Robert Englund, Horror Hall Of Fame aired between 1990 & 1992 and though a fourth show was announced at the end of the third one, it never came to fruition and the awards show forever dropped off the face of the earth. A true televised year end love letter to the horror genre would never return again.

Filmed at Universal Studios Hollywood, the third annual Horror Hall of Fame awards show inducted Alien, Tales From The Crypt & The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, among others, into the Hall of Fame, with nominees for film of the year including Pet Sematary Two, Child's Play 3 & Freddy's Dead. The show also featured makeup artist Steve Johnson and then wife Linnea Quigley hosting a few goofy DIY effects segments, a live performance of the Monster Mash and much much more early 90's awesomeness!

Enjoy the full 2 hour broadcast of Horror Hall of Fame 3 below (complete with old school commercials!!), which aired way back in 1992!

Thanks for posting this - it brings back fond memories. The original uploader is correct, though. This did air in the fall of '92, as seen from the promotions for the then-upcoming Oct. and Nov. '92 releases of Dr. Giggles and Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Oh shit you're right. Thanks for correcting me on that. It's Wikipedia that has the dates listed incorrectly!
