Anchor Bay’s The Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season earned the top honor from the 2014 Reaper Awards competition. The limited edition release of the post-apocalyptic series, which came in a replica of an aquarium containing the heads of several of the zombie-like walkers, earned three awards, including Title of the Year and Best Packaging. The series also won Best Big Bad for the character of The Governor.

Best Boxed Set went to Shout! Factory’s Vincent Price Collection, which contains Blu-rays of House of Usher (1960), The Pit and the Pendulum (1961), The Haunted Palace (1963), The Masque of the Red Death (1964), Witchfinder General/The Conqueror Worm (1968) and The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971). The set also won for Best Extras.

Best Title From the Vault went to Anchor Bay’s Halloween: 35th Anniversary Edition.

The Reaper Awards, presented by Home Media Magazine and DreadCentral.com, honored the top horror and thriller titles released between Aug. 1, 2013, and July 31, 2014. Studios submitted contenders for consideration by a panel of judges in conjunction with a consumer vote.
