The Short Films Of Steve Daniels!

Greetings Fright fans! Rob G here. For those of you that have been with us since our humble beginnings, you may have heard us bring up the name Steve Daniels before. Our staffer Adam Barnick did a pretty lengthy Icons interview with him all the way back in 2006! And his short film THE GIBBERING […]

HOME ALONE: A HORROR MOVIE DISGUISED AS A HOLIDAY FAVORITE

I was graciously asked to participate this year for the Shit Movie Fest’s annual “25 Days of Shitmas” celebration of Christmas movies.  Being a total Chicago snob, I jumped at the chance to dissect and review the John Hughes classic, HOME ALONE.  I love writing about horror movies, but having the chance to write about […]

Happy 30th To Michael Jackson’s THRILLER!

Greetings, fiends! I was skimming through today’s batch of articles on FEARnet (my full time day job) and read this fantastic retrospective by Gregory Burkart on Michael Jackson’s THRILLER. The long form music video/short film directed by John Landis actually premiered on MTV on this date, December 2nd 30 whole years ago! Whew! How many […]

Michael Myers’ 10 Most Memorable ‘Halloween’ Kills

Ah, Michael Myers. One of cinema’s most notorious serial killers; pure evil on two legs. And whereas ‘Psycho‘ is often considered the granddaddy of the “slasher” film, that’d make John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic the “daddy” of this particular horror sub-genre. As is often noted, the original ‘Halloween‘ has very little in terms of on […]

HALLOWEEN 5 – The Most Misleading Teaser To The Most Disappointing Michael Myers Film

One of my fondest rites of passage into becoming a full fledged horror nut was when I got to see my first theatrical HALLOWEEN movie in theaters. I was 12 years old when I witnessed HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS on the big-screen and at that point I’d already read everything that Fangoria […]

Exploitation Alley: NIGHT OF THE COBRA WOMAN!!

For this week’s Exploitation Alley, I picked a film that I had the pleasure of viewing recently. I was interested in this for a couple of reasons: I had never seen it before, and the cover looked so awesome. I was expecting epic rituals with naked ladies, snakes eating humans, and possibly a plot that […]

Great Character Arcs in Horror: FRIDAY THE 13TH IV, V And VI’s Tommy Jarvis!!

Writing an introduction to an article about quite possibly the best character in the entire FRIDAY THE 13TH series (aside from Jason, obviously..) shouldn’t be this hard, but what do you say about the only person who not only handed Mr. Voorhees his ass, not once like most survivors, but three times? I’m kidding, of […]

Double Feature Adventures: SINISTER/RESOLUTION!!

Last week we began a brand new weekly series called Double Feature Adventures, in which we sat down and watched two films that usually would absolutely nothing in common, but still shared a small link. This week’s theme was “two movies that revolve around characters finding film and trying to solve a mystery”, and we […]
