To make matters even better, the winners are chosen by the films’ fans (you), instead of a panel of critics.
Among the nominees, David Gordon Green’s Halloween is nominated in — categories: Best Wide-Release Movie, Best Actress and Best Makeup FX. Other scene favorites such as Bird Box and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch are nominated for Best Streaming-Premiere Movie. The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina and American Horror Story: Apocalypse are nominated for Best Series.
Additionally, Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria and Ari Aster’s Hereditary were nominated under multiple categories.
However, readers and fans of Fangoria will also be able to write in a cinematic favorite of their own for the category “Best Kill.”
