unnamed (2)

Image Entertainment’s THE DEVIL INCARNATE is set to hit shelves on October 7th, and the director of the film, L. Gustavo Cooper, was nice enough to spend a few moments speaking with Icons of Fright, regarding the film, the technique of making a half found footage/half regular style-like film dealing with one horrific plot.

Review: INNER DEMONS

Inner Demons still 4

Addiction is scarier than any horror film. The way in which drugs, alcohol or any other substances can overtake someone and cause them to become somebody completely different than who they truly are, is a terrifyingly real issue, and while it’s been tackled in a couple of genre films over the last couple of years […]

Beyond Fright Double Review: IFC’s WOLF/HELLION

WOLFHELLION

I’ve always been drawn to films that have lead characters that don’t fall into a black or white area, ones that are in a very grey place. Characters like those ones tend to stay with you after watching the films they inhabit, and are able to make you stop and think for a while, making […]

Review: THE PARANORMAL DIARIES: CLOPHILL

Para1

Found footage is in full effect, with entries like WILLOW CREEK, DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and the upcoming (and VERY good) CREEP all have either hit or getting ready to hit your screens just within this year.

Review: DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN

Screen Grab 019 (1)

Possessed pregnancies seems to be a subgenre that is alive and booming, with film likes DEVIL’S DUE, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and now Brian Netto’s  DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN. I don’t know if someone in independent horror land just wants to steer potential baby-makers away from having a kid with stories of the devil executing his […]

Review: GRAVE HALLOWEEN

Having a really solid foundation to a film gives a filmmaker a step in the right direction. Where it goes from there is up to a good combination of everything from a solid script, and eye for telling a visually striking film and performances that sell the story and the foundation. While Steven R. Monroe(director […]

maxresdefault

Having made a name for himself (and co-director Kevin Gates) with THE ZOMBIE DIARIES and its sequel, THE ZOMBIE DIARIES 2, director Michael Bartlett went a completely different route with the upcoming film THE PARANORMAL DIARIES: CLOPHILL (hitting DVD September 30th via Image Entertainment). The film still employs the POV/found footage-like approach like his previous […]

Review: DISASTER LA, The Last Zombie Apocalypse Begins Here

Disaster LA

Every year, around a dozen or two entries into the zombie sub-genre are released, and like every other genre, they range in quality from good or decent, to well, not that great. Every genre has that approach and when something takes off, it’s a surety that the market will become flooded with films of varying […]
