Icons Pirate Commentary: THE WARRIORS with Sean Clark & Rob G!

Warriors-Commentary

It’s been a while since we here at Icons Of Fright have been able to host a new “pirate commentary.” And so we were excited when the prospect of this special WARRIORS one came together. I’ve always been a fan of the film; I have vague memories of seeing it during frequent re-runs on cable. A […]

Album Review: Sam Hayne’s “Spine Chillers”

coversmall

While many Halloween haunts and attractions this year will most typically be blasting the soundtracks of THE EXORCIST or HALLOWEEN while doing their best to scare the living hell out of trick or treaters, London UK-based producer Sam Haynes’ newest album of dark Halloween-themed music, “Spine Chillers” is a breath of fresh air for horror […]

Beyond Fright Double Review: IFC’s WOLF/HELLION

WOLFHELLION

I’ve always been drawn to films that have lead characters that don’t fall into a black or white area, ones that are in a very grey place. Characters like those ones tend to stay with you after watching the films they inhabit, and are able to make you stop and think for a while, making […]

Beyond Fright Review: COLD IN JULY

Cold-In-July

Let’s just start this with an obvious statement: Jim Mickle is one of the best directors working today. Very few filmmakers have a track record as solid as Mickles, a track record of improving more and more with every single release. His 2006 debut, MULBERRY STREET showed horror fans a brand new take on a […]

Beyond Fright: Motionless In White’s “Creatures” Music Video

My first exposure to Motionless in White was when they came to my hometown around five years ago and whichever shitty band I was in at the time opened up the show. I immediately latched onto the band and their style of mixing the heavier elements of what many call “metalcore” with a more gothic-like […]

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!!

r1

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 […]
