The Horror Bowl Movie Awards, independent horror, thriller and sci-fi movie awards, have given “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” the award for “Best Musical Horror Short”.

Yes, I am now the proud recipient of a Horror Bowl!

The Horror Bowl Movie Awards gives out awards for Best Thriller or Best Sci-Fi as well as unique categories like Most Gory Scene or Best Death Scene.  This edition they did not give out a Best Horror Short award, but did give Tell-Tale the more specifically named Best Musical Horror Short Award.

Arguably, “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” is more musical than horrible.
