Fuse lights horror nods

'Hostel' earns most nominations with six

The inaugural “Fuse Fangoria Chainsaw Awards” are shaping up, with the kudocast unveiling such macabre categories as creepiest kid, highest body count, sickest f/x and killer video.

“Hostel” landed the most nominations with six, including killer movie and most thrilling killing. Three movies landed five noms: “Snakes on a Plane,” “Underworld: Evolution” and the remake of “The Hills Have Eyes.”

Awards will even feature a category dubbed “Dude You Don’t Wanna Mess With,” in which Samuel L. Jackson of “Snakes on a Plane” will vie against the ape from “King Kong.”

Kudos are scheduled for Oct. 15 at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles.

The Fuse network will run a 2½-hour tape of the event on Oct. 22, starting with a half-hour “black carpet” (at 9:30 p.m. ET) to critique the fashions of arriving celebrities. Event itself will include perfs by three groups still to be named, a nod to Fuse’s status as a predominantly music network.

Fuse, which started on the air in May 2003, added 6.7 million subscribers in the last year for a total of 44.8 million. MTV, the granddaddy of cable music networks in its 25th year, reaches 89.9 million.
