'Rondo and Bob' nominated for Rondo Award!
Updated: Mar 27
Rondo and Bob is an official nominee for the best documentary Rondo Award. Sounds like a natural, right? It's perhaps the biggest award in the horror film genre. And it's named for Rondo!
Voting is open to everyone. Folks need to write to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Rondo and Bob for best documentary" and their name. The deadline is April 25.
Robert A. Burns was the genius behind the look of classic horror films including Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Re-Animator and The Howling. He was deeply obsessed with cult actor Rondo Hatton aka The Creeper. Their stories merge in Rondo and Bob.
It's been tough trying to get Rondo and Bob out into the world during a pandemic. We've had one screening near Rondo's hometown of Tampa where we won Best of Fest. We've been accepted at other fests, but they've promptly canceled. We're proud of what we've created, and will keep pushing forward.
