This year, Rob Zombie received the award for Personal Achievement in Direction and Wes Craven got the Lifetime Achievement award. Zombie’s award was the first ever award named after the late founder, the Michael J. Hein Award. After being honored, Zombie held a Q&A session with fans, who asked a lot of banal questions. Watch the video above.

In the past, other horror heavyweights, such as George Romero and Robert Englund, have won awards at the New York City Horror Film Festival.

Presented by MooDude and sponsored by (aka, kept free by) The Dark Side Horror Group, Disc Makers, Face3, Final Draft, Latin Horror, Scares that Care and Sneek City, the NYCHFF was kept intimate, fun, and unpolluted by over commercialization. This is how Michael Hein wanted things, and his family is working to keep it as such.
