Spike TV is shooting the 5th annual Scream Awards this weekend in Los Angeles and they’re giving away tickets to some lucky fans. The Scream Awards are a yearly event honoring the best in horror, comic books, sci-fi and fantasy. For geek genre fans, this is a must-see event.
Having attended the awards show for the last two years, I can guarantee that the event is a genuinely good time. Spike puts on a great show; it’s fun, silly and pairs a true appreciation for the genre with a healthy sense of humor. You may see: Tim Burton ten feet behind you settling into a hot air balloon, Stan Lee on a giant floating spider, Quentin Tarantino mingling with the crowd or the cast of Battlestar Galactica walking past you and slapping hands.
This year, the Scream Awards will honor the cast of Lost, and pay tribute to the 25th anniversary of Back to the Future with special appearances by Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and Elisabeth Shue. Other celebrities expected to attend the awards show include: Alexander Skarsgård, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer from True Blood, Megan Fox, Kristen Stewart, Ryan Reynolds and M.I.A.
There will also be first looks at: Paranormal Activity 2, The Walking Dead, and more. Wes Craven himself will be there to present never-before-seen footage from the highly anticipated fourth instillation to the aptly named Scream franchise, Scream 4.
Fans that are willing to dress in costume and have a great time will have the chance to attend the awards, and possibly be seated with a celebrity and appear on camera in the televised version of the show.

The Scream Awards will shoot this Saturday, October 16th and Air on Spike TV on Tuesday, October 19th at 9PM/8C.
