An event in Grand Rapids: Thriller! Chiller! 2013 Groovy Awards! (Original)

     Thriller! Chiller! awards certain movies shown during the festival. While speaking with Anthony Griffin I asked him to break down the process of selecting the winners, here's what he had to say:

"About 15% of the movies that are in Thriller Chillier are formally submitted to a jury process and this year we had five different jury members and they watched the movies in five different categories for Features, Short, Best Thrill, the award for the movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat, Best Chill, the award for the movie that makes you want to recoil and tear and then Best FX, which honors the use of speacial effects to help tell a story, as far as the main awards. We also have The Radical Award, for the best post apocalyptic and or zombie movie, and then we have the fabulous, famous if you will now, Boomstick Award for best Michigan movie."
