LAKE MUNGO: THE MOST UNSETTLING MOVIE WHERE NOTHING HAPPENS

lake-mungo2

I’ve successfully been harassing the Killer POV crew for a while now about watching the Australian ghost flick, LAKE MUNGO.  When I was a sophomore in college, I came across this film at a Family Video store and I knew absolutely nothing about it.  The cover art drew me in and I went through a […]

Icons of Fright’s Writing Mixtape, Part Four: Josh Soriano

MIXtapeJOSH

I rarely get alone time in my current living situation, which can sometimes make it difficult to get into the proper head space for writing. As an artist, I’m already heavily critical of what I’m working on, so it’s helpful to be able to release some anxiety though music. Besides inducing a creative break, music […]

Our First Times: THE LOST BOYS

lost_boys_xlg

Every once in a while, the Icons of Fright staff all band together to write what we like to call “Icons Firsts”, in which we all write about the first times we all experienced watching classic horror films (HALLOWEEN, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, THE EVIL DEAD). When it’s just one of us writing about […]

FAH11

Natty’s FIVE HORROR BADASSES

BADASSES

Nothing gets our attention in a horror film quite like a badass. Of course, we often find ourselves rooting for the bad guy (or girl), the random hordes of zombies, or weird objects. (Or is that just me when I watch the Evil Bong movies?) Either way, we can all agree that we love a good […]

Icons Of Fright’s WRITING MIXTAPE, Part Three: Natty

MixTapeNat

Everything I do tends to revolve around music. It’s mandatory that I reserve about 45 minutes of my day to unwind with some good tunes and headphones. I can’t even begin my day right if I don’t enjoy music with my morning coffee, so it only makes sense that I HAVE to listen to music while […]

A Look Back At: FULL ECLIPSE (1993)!!

ScreenHunter_106 Aug. 03 01.25

The ’90s was an interesting decade to say the least. Growing up, nothing was better to me, than sitting down to watch either a horror film or one of my favorite HBO programs, whether it be TALES FROM THE CRYPT or THE KIDS IN THE HALL, most of my nights were spent eating McDonald’s and being […]

“All Of My Friends Are Monsters, and My Heroes Are Survivors”: An Ode to The Grandmother of Scream Queens

TCM

Yesterday, we all found out that Marilyn Burns had passed away, and while it might not have affected some, it certainly did leave a mark on horror fans everywhere. It seems that a lot of people throw stories up about the passing of genre greats almost immediately, and for a good while today, I fought […]
