“Last year’s Chainsaw Awards were not only a highlight of the year in horror, but a testimony to the very spirit of the genre, as ingenuity and resourcefulness won out over the challenges of production during lockdown,” said Fangoria editor Phil Nobile Jr. in a statement. “We’ve upped the ante this year and added some new categories, and we’re excited for fans to tune in to once again celebrate an amazing year for horror and its fans.”

Shudder General Manager Craig Engler added, “Shudder is proud to once again join forces with Fangoria to celebrate the best in horror, as voted on by the horror community itself.”

The special is produced by Armen Aghaeian and director Ama Lea, and written by Michael Varrati. Tara Ansley, Abhi Goel, and Phil Nobile Jr. executive produced.
