DRAG ME TO HELL leads horror nominees for 36th Annual Saturn Awards


By Michael Gingold
The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the nominees for its 36th Annual Saturn Awards (though strangely enough, as of this posting, they haven’t posted them at the org’s official website yet). Sam Raimi’s DRAG ME TO HELL turned out to be the most honored fright feature, scoring five nominations including Best Horror Film.

Raimi’s tale of a gypsy curse is also up for Best Actress (Alison Lohman), Best Supporting Actress (Lorna Raver), Best Music (Christopher Young) and Best Makeup (Gregory Nicotero and Howard Berger). Also in the running for Best Horror Film are THE BOX (plus Best Supporting Actor for Frank Langella), FROZEN, THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON (??—plus Best Younger Actor for Taylor Lautner) and ZOMBIELAND (plus Best Supporting Actor for Woody Harrelson). Other fear films in the running are THE ROAD for Best Actor (Viggo Mortensen) and Best Younger Actor (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and THIRST for Best International Film. Sadly, not a single horror feature is up for either Best Director or Best Writing.



In the television category, the Best Syndicated/Cable Series nominees include Showtime’s DEXTER (plus Best Actor for Michael C. Hall, Best Supporting Actress for Julie Benz and Jennifer Carpenter and Best Guest Star for John Lithgow) and HBO’s TRUE BLOOD (plus Best Actor for Stephen Moyer, Best Actress for Anna Paquin, Best Supporting Actor for Alexander Skarsgard and Best Guest Star for Michelle Forbes). In addition, Fox’s FRINGE is up for Best Actress (Anna Torv), Best Supporting Actor (John Noble) and Best Guest Star (Leonard Nimoy). For Best DVD Release, Dark Sky/Magnet’s THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, Anchor Bay’s LAID TO REST, MPI’s PONTYPOOL and Magnolia’s SURVEILLANCE are all in the running, while MGM’s THE HANNIBAL LECTER ANTHOLOGY, Anchor Bay’s HELLRAISER BOXED SET and Sony’s THE WILLIAM CASTLE COLLECTION are among those vying for Best Collection. The Saturns will be awarded June 24 in Burbank, CA.

  2. how in the hell is New Moon up for best horror film? Last house on the Left was meh, no way is it worthy of that nomination. Thirst should have gotten a best horror film nod!

  3. I'm surprised Thirst managed to get nominations and Antichrist got squat (and even more shocking is that New Moon gets the nomination that should have gone to AC).

  5. This was a pleasant surprise to horror fans like me who are sick of excessive darkness and gore. Actually, I find most such movies to be disturbing rather than scary. What's so enjoyable about seeing someone's guts hang from their stomach? This site helps me to write my essay on this theme.
