GALLERY: Scrimm Award Ceremony & Exhumed Book Signing

This past weekend saw the New York City Horror Film Festival award its prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award to a very deserving Angus Scrimm. The Tall Man actor was on hand to personally receive the award at the Tribeca Cinema - along with yours truly and Phantasm series crewmember Kristen Deem. His award ceremony was followed by a brief Q&A and a PHANTASM EXHUMED book signing.

EXHUMED photographer Scott Pensa was on hand to document the event and you can see all of his wonderful photos by expanding this post. These include the award presentation itself, the onstage tributes to the Tall Man and the book signing.

FANGORIA's Tony Timpone introduces Angus.

The terrific James Felix McKenney, who directed Angus in THE OFF SEASON, AUTOMATONS 
and SATAN HATES YOU, gives a warm onstage tribute.

McKenney's tribute was followed up by actor Larry Fessenden's, who memorably co-starred with Angus in films like THE OFF SEASON and I SELL THE DEAD.

His acceptance speech was uproariously funny!!

 You can't tell it from the camera flash, but it was terribly dark, thus we all signed by candlelight.

Pause for a photo.
