Beyond Fright: Motorcycle Gangs, Face-paint and A Bloody Fight In Brand New Video For Butch Walker’s “Bed On Fire”

Walker

Full disclosure: I’m a Butch Walker fanatic. Hands down, one of my favorite singer/songwriters today, the man has put out album after album of solid material. Sure the Marvelous 3 days were a tad bit poppy for some, but from his second solo album “Letters” to what’s been shown so far of the upcoming (out […]

Anchor Bay Bringing Pulp-Noir To The Masses When BAD TURN WORSE Hits DVD/Bluray This January!

BAD TURN WORSE

If there’s a subgenre of films that I adore as much as horror, it’s the Crime/Mystery one. I’m a sucker for pulpy, Noir-toned crime films in which things get worse and worse as the movie goes on, and films like The Coen Bros.’ BLOOD SIMPLE are some of my all time favorites. I eat and breathe […]

*Editor’s note: Friend of Icons of Fright, Derek Smith, tackled this review of Drafthouse Films’ THE CONGRESS for us.

Beyond Fright Review: THE MULE

The_Mule_SD3_150513_0148-(1

Good, original crime thrillers can be extremely difficult to come by. For ever GOODFELLAS or FARGO, there are quite a few efforts that end up falling a bit flat, giving viewers a definite “been there, done that” feeling. When original crime films do come, it’s typically out of nowhere and a lasting effort that ends […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Every Time I Die’s “Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space” & “Revival Mode” Videos

ETID

By far one of my favorite bands of all time, Buffalo, NY’s Every Time I Die has always been a juggernaut of craziness. A band that can be heavy as possible, but can throw out some soulful melodies at the drop of a dime, the band has always had a knack for not only creating […]

Review: DRIVE HARD

DRIVE HARD

It’s pretty apparent when a film takes itself a bit too seriously. On the flipside to that, it’s also apparent when you know that the actors involved in a film are well aware of it being a tad bit silly, and in turn, give performances that are not only in on the joke, but are […]
