The Vault: KOLOBOS

6963216_3

If I had to choose three subgenres I’d say I’m most fluent in, it would be female-centered exploitation films, films now-famous actors wish they could scrub off their resumes, and late 90s-early 00’s slasher films.  I’ve been fortunate enough to find some crazy gems over the years at my small town thrift shops, but last […]

The Importance of Blondes in Classic Horror

dracula3

“Blondes make the best victims. They’re like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.”  — Alfred Hitchcock To be a person of virtue, one must possess the characteristics of being morally just and kind-hearted.  It is rather easy to determine whether or not a person is virtuous based on interactions with them, but to […]

THINGS I LEARNED FROM WATCHING THE HOSTEL TRILOGY IN ONE SITTING

trilogy

There are moments in my life where I make extremely unwise decisions and I will be the last to admit it when I’ve made a mistake.  However, this is an instance where I will scream from the rooftops how much of an idiot I am.  I’m the type of person that likes to watch franchises […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
