What The Hell?

What The HELL?

I am an avid reader of Fangoria; it’s my favorite magazine of all time and one of the few that isn’t critical or biased. It’s good stuff, but I am writing because of the how hopeless I feel. There is a thing the magazine does one a year called “The Chainsaw Awards” and it’s voted on by the fans and basically this is what happened this year:

What/who I wanted to win:

Best Wide Release Film: Let Me In.

Best Limited-release/Direct-To-Video film: Antichrist

Best Actor: Ryan Reynolds from Buried

Best Actress: Charlotte Gainsbourg from Antichrist

Best Supporting Actor: Vincent Cassel from Black Swan

Best Supporting Actress: Jodelle Ferland from Case 39

Best Screenplay: Glenn McQuaid for “I Sell The Dead”

Best Score: Clint Mansel for Black Swan

Best Makeup/Creature FX: Steve Boyle for DayBreakers

Worst Film: Shutter Island

Fangoria Hall of Fame: Debbie Rochon!!!

What/Who Actually Won

Best Wide Release Film: Black Swan

Best Limited-Release/Direct-To-Video Film: The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

Best Actor: Ryan Reynolds from Buried

Best Actress: Natalie Portman from Black Swan

Best Supporting Actor: Richard Jenkins From Let Me In

Best Supporting Actress: Barbara Hershey From Black Swan

Best Score: Clint Mansel for Black Swan

Worst Film: A Nightmare On Elm Street

This year I guess the fans of the horror world and I just don’t see eye to eye. We only ended up agree with three things in total. Anyone who has seen Black Swan and I Sell The Dead know which one is better, eveidently, Black Swan sounds better I guess. I am also very angry about The Hall Of Fame. Diary of Deb is a very important part of Fangoria for me and is one of my new favorite articles, but for some reason she wasn’t good enough to be considered the Hall of Fam. She’s been in near a hundred horror films, but she’s on yet in the Hall Of Fame? That’s BS and you know it Fangoria!!!

I guess Much like what Twilight did to the MTV Movie Awards, Black Swan has taken the cake, whether they deserved it or not.
