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

MIW

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.

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 […]

Hitch-live-marquee

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”!!

H1

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 […]
