This event is so important for the genre, as many other awards shows still have yet to reach out to the horror universe, favoring other more family friendly genres and categories. Fangoria Chainsaw Awards feels like our very own special Oscar night and it’s certainly a much more entertaining show. I mean, when was the last time you saw a vampire presenting the BAFTAs?
