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 […]

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 […]

PicMonkey Collage

Despite being fortunate enough to be raised on a healthy diet of horror, I can’t deny the fact I was born in 1990.  I was born long after our most beloved genre actors got their start and made their mark in horror, and there are plenty of horror icons that I didn’t first see in […]
