With Horror TV Taking Over Networks, Jerry Asks: How About A HIDEAWAY Series?

138774

While horror is dominating Television these days in everything from HANNIBAL, PENNY DREADFUL, and BATES MOTEL already airing, the upcoming series of Del Toro’s THE STRAIN set to debut soon and god knows how many other shows being developed as I write this, I often ask myself: “Wouldn’t it be nice if this or that […]

Exploitation Alley: MONSTROSITY (AKA- THE ATOMIC BRAIN)!!!

The-Atomic-Brain-poster

This is one film that I simply could not believe I had never seen before. I have a space in my heart reserved for weird, trippy (and somewhat terrible films) films, especially if they’re in black and white…I just can’t get enough.  Alas, I went into this expecting something great, and within a few minutes […]

Beyond Fright: A Look Back At David Lynch’s LOST HIGHWAY Soundtrack

Lost-Highway

Very few films affect me the way that David Lynch’s 1997 mystery/thriller (I consider it a horror film) LOST HIGHWAY does.  Maybe it was the adventure I had to go through to see it (read about that  here), or maybe its surreal, noir-like mood and tone of the film that made it so very easy to […]

Exploitation Alley: THREE THE HARD WAY (1974)

Three-the-Hard-Way-1

I suppose I can blame this week’s Exploitation Alley on my best friend (and wife of Icons’ editor Jerry) for sending me a picture of a very shirtless, and very hot Michael Jai White as Black Dynamite. For some reason, ok…for many reasons I thought of the 1974 Blaxploitation classic THREE THE HARD WAY. This […]

Natty’s Favorite Holiday-Themed Horror Films That AREN’T Named Halloween!

Untitled-1

Admit it, you love holidays. Sure, all of the ‘hip’ people may say that they only love Halloween, but chances are they may also be a sucker for Valentine’s Day, Easter, or maybe something completely random such as Arbor Day (is ANYONE an Arbor Day fanatic?). Celebrating holidays can be a hell of a lot […]

“Is It Time To Say Goodbye To The Horror Trinity?” Part Two: FRIDAY THE 13TH

horror2

*Author’s note: In this second of three articles asking readers (and myself) if the HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13TH, and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchises really have anywhere else left to go, the subject under the microscope this time around is Jason Voorhees, his mother Pamela and everyone else involved in some unfortunate events that […]

“Is it Time to Say Goodbye to the Horror Trinity?” Part One: HALLOWEEN

horror

*Author’s note: Before jumping right into this, I must say: I am a horror fan through and through. There is nothing that I love more than to watch genre films (that’s not an exaggeration). My favorite film of all time is HALLOWEEN (’78), and as much as I have been made fun by my friends […]
