Exploitation Alley: HIGH SCHOOL HELLCATS!!

hshc2

For this week’s Exploitation Alley, I decided to take it way back. Back to 1958 to be exact. A time where wearing pants was considered a form of rebellion (if you were female), and parents were the most unhip people ever.  Ok, maybe that last part is still valid, but either way, it was a […]

Exploitation Alley: THE HOUSE OF EXORCISM (1974)!!!

HOEtitle

If 1970’s possession films aren’t your thing, they probably should be. Most of the time they can be downright creepy, often the right amount of cheese, and there’s always a chance that you might get surprised with random boobs for no reason at all. Actually, I’m pretty sure that I just explained the film I […]

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

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

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 […]

Fright At Home Spotlight: THE SACRAMENT!

FAH11

Hitting shelves today, is everything from the Jim Jarmusch vampire flick, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE and Scream Factory’s new Bluray of LEVIATHAN, to the focal point of this Fright At Home article, Ti West’s Jonestown-like thriller, THE SACRAMENT. Having already had the chance to check out the Magnet-released disc of THE SACRAMENT, we thought we’d give you […]

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 […]
