Beyond Fright Review: 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH

nc1

Documentaries on famous people, whether they be actors, filmmakers or musicians, can be an interesting experience. While the idea of a documentary is one of feeling like you have a complete inside look into someone’s life, their stories, and their experiences, the truth of it all is that you’re in reality just seeing what they […]

Beyond Fright: Finch’s “Worms Of The Earth” Video

Finch

While 2003’s UNDERWORLD and the franchise that came out of that film didn’t quite impress everyone, one thing is quite certain: the series has always given fans killer soundtracks. Most of the tracks included on the various UNDERWORLD film soundtracks went for some nifty remix-like approaches, but every once in a while there would be […]

Beyond Fright -The Ramones & White Zombie Do THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE!!

On the previous Beyond Fright entry, I wrote about The Huntingtons’ “Let’s Go to Haddonfield“, a song that was written about John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN. For this one, I decided to focus on two songs that went in the direction of somewhere else, that place being Texas.  Full of heat, barbecue and some good ol’ fashioned murder […]

Every once in a while, you’ll hear the details of an event that sounds so, so awesome, that it takes you a moment to properly process what you just heard. Such was the case when my friend Monica invited me to join her for what was being billed as “The Big Picture: Hitchcock!” – A tribute […]

Beyond Fright: THE HUNTINGTONS’ “Let’s Go To Haddonfield”!!

Who doesn’t love the Ramones? It’s almost blasphemy to not have some sort of admiration or at least respect for the punk rock pioneers, and like the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While I have been a fan of The Ramones for most of my life, there was a period in my […]

Like Jerry’s installment yesterday, I too tend to write with a playlist blasting in the background.  As a musical theatre performer and a former coffee-shop cover singer, music plays a major part in my life.  My music tastes are all over the board, but my writing playlists tend not to really click with what most […]

Icons of Fright’s WRITING MIXTAPE, PART ONE: Jerry Smith

MixTape

With Beyond Fright, we like to focus on things somewhat on the fringe of horror. Whether it be great music or just  films that might be on the tip of something based in genres that might not be considered “horror” by most standards, but still have that great genre vibe. While brainstorming ideas for articles, […]
