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).

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 […]

While brainstorming ideas for articles, […]

FIVE CHARACTERS IN HORROR WHO RUINED EVERYTHING!!

ART6

In most horror films, a pretty good amount of characters suffer an inevitable demise due to the actions, or really bad luck of a single character. You know, the character you find yourself secretly wanting to slap,  thanks to their continual bad decisions, ones that end up ruining the life of those who are “lucky” enough to be associated […]
