No nominees have been announced yet, but with the anticipation of a Final Ballot at the end of February, the excitement is building.

Dead by Daylight drops the official trailer for another Saw debut on their popular survival horror game, an addition that is sure to be a horrific and bloody time.

Players of Dead by Daylight will be able to complete more quests that will unlock new Memories, Logs, Cinematics, Charms and Bloodpoints as they play. Memories and Logs will further expand on the stories of The Observer, Amanda Young and David Trapp.

Saw first saw its Dead by Daylight premiere back in 2018 with the addition of Killer Amanda Young, Survivor David Trapp and a map of the Gideon Meatpacking Plant to survive or kill on.

January 25 - Tuesday

The trailer for Monstrous has dropped and things are looking absolutely chilling for Christina Ricci's new horror film.

Having fled an abusive relationship with her young son in tow, Christina Ricci will star as Laura, a mother who only wants to make a happy life for her and her son, Cody. Things take a dark turn however, when Cody makes a new supernatural friend, a friend who doesn't quite get along with Laura.

Directed by Chris Sivertson and written by Carol Chrest, Monstrous will also star Santino Barnard, Don Baldaramos, Lew Temple and Colleen Camp. The film is still in post-production and is due to arrive in theaters later this year.
