The winners were announced Sunday as Jamie Kennedy hosted the first ever televised FUSE FANGORIA CHAINSAW AWARDS, which honors the best in horror-themed cinema, music, and television, in Los Angeles. The two-hour show will premiere on Fuse Sunday, October 22nd at 10 p.m. (ET). There’s a half-hour black carpet Dead on Arrival pre-show at 9:30 p.m. (ET).
The night’s festivities were kicked off by masked rockers Slipknot and a chainsaw-wielding Leatherface, who presented the honor for “Most Thrilling Killing (Best Death Scene)” to SAW II‘s Emmanuelle Vaugier. The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis accepted the “Killer Video” award for “Dani California,” while musician-turned-director Rob Zombie walked away with “Killer Movie” for THE DEVIL’S REJECTS.
THE HILLS HAVE EYES was the big winner in the movie categories, earning accolades for “Looks That Kill (Best Makeup)” and “Bloodiest Beatdown.” Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick of THE OMEN was honored as horror’s “Creepiest Kid,” while Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars got the nod for “Prince of Darkness (Darkest Male in a Music Video).” MASTERS OF HORROR picked up the “Killer Television Award.”
