FANGORIA Announces 2024 Chainsaw Noms

Fangoria has announced the list of nominees in the annual Chainsaw Awards, honoring the best horror movies of the year.

This year, the event is taking place in October, a shift that allows for an extended nomination window that covers releases from January 2023 through June 2024. “Though the Fangoria Chainsaw Awards have been around for over 30 years, our current age of horror has delivered a high volume of next-level entertainment the likes of which fans have never seen,” said Fangoria’s Editor-in-Chief Phil Nobile Jr. “Fans will have their work cut out for them, as choosing the best of the best from this genre has truly never been more difficult – or more fun.”

This year also marks the addition of a new category: Best Video Game.
