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.

DFA

It’s been a little while since a real Double Feature Adventures article, due to work schedules and various other forms of roadblocks preventing some hang time between Natty and myself, but alas, when discussing a potential double feature idea, it dawned on me…why not make it a mystery this time around? Giving Natty a call, […]

Genre Gut Punches: Jamie Lloyd Never Stood A Chance

GGP

There is something about the HALLOWEEN franchise that just ignites an overwhelming mixture of feelings for me. I hold the original John Carpenter classic very close to my heart, and will go to my grave declaring it to be the best film of all time. With the amount of love and admiration that I have […]

Alright fright fanatics, it’s Double Feature Adventure time. While my usual sidekick Natty isn’t along for the ride this time (she’s currently hard at work writing the next Pauly Shore film. Not really, but hey, she has big dreams, ok?), I had a jonesin’ for the early horror entries from Finnish director (and obviously my […]

Exploitation Alley: CONTAMINATION .7

ScreenHunter_281 Apr. 09 21.47

I decided to ask a friend for a recommendation recently (said friend being  Jerry) , and he suggested this epic, train wreck of a film. After viewing it, I still don’t know if I want to punch him and revoke my friendship, or bake him cookies, and give him a high five.  I mean, this film […]
