The nominees for the upcoming 2024 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards have been announced with the upcoming award show recognizing Chucky, Interview with the Vampire, Abigail, and a whole lot more.

One of the most exciting things about the 2024 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards is the addition of a new ‘Best Video Game’ category. Not only that but due to the show’s shift to October, the ceremony can cover horror (and adjacent) content from 2023 as well as the first half of 2024. 

The award ceremony will air on AMC’s Shudder. And with the event being a couple of months away, I will try to watch some of the highlighted content I wasn’t aware of or hadn’t gone around to viewing.
