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 […]

*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 […]

TCM1

Last year, the Icons of Fright staff and I all began contributing to what we called “Icons Firsts”, a series of articles detailing the stories of our first encounters with classic horror films.

*Editor’s note: Icons’ own Justin R. Lafleur was awesome enough to not only conduct this interview, but to do it with a filmmaker that holds a special place with Icons of Fright. Dante Tomaselli was one of the very first interviews conducted for Icons, back in an interview that Rob G. did in 2004..a full […]
