The FANGORIA 2023 Chainsaw Awards have come and gone! You made your votes heard and we celebrated the amazing winners and nominees throughout a star-studded ceremony streaming live on Shudder, celebrating the cream of the class of 2022 horror crop. Black Phone and Terrifier 2 were the big winners of the night.
Hosted by actor and writer David Dastmalchian (Late Night with the Devil, Dune) and Peaches Christ (All About Evil, the Midnight Mass podcast). Featuring Jamie Clayton (Hellraiser), Mason Thames and Madeleine McGraw (The Black Phone), and Akela Cooper (Malignant, M3GAN) among the presenters.
With titles like Jordan Peele's Nope, Ti West's one-two punch of X and Pearl, Dan Trachtenberg's outstanding Predator prequel Prey, Zach Cregger's smash-hit Barbarian, and Bryan Fuller's excellent horror doc series, Queer for Fear among this year's nominees, the competition was intense.
Take a look below for a full list of winners.
Big congratulations to all the winners and nominees! In case you missed it (or if you just want to watch it again) you can stream the big show on Shudder and you can catch the red carpet pre-show on YouTube.
2023 is shaping up to be a wonderfully gnarly year in horror and we imagine voting for the 2024 Chainsaw Awards is going to be pretty fierce!
