Beyond Fright Review: BAD TURN WORSE

btw

A good Texas-pulp thriller can be hard to come by. That feeling and mood that filled stories written by Jim Thompson and various others just don’t seem to translate to film that often. When they do, it’s not only a rare occurrence, but something to latch onto.  Full  of twists and turns, the Simon and Zeke […]

Review: THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT

Houses-October-3

For the past decade or so, there has been a rising number of haunted houses or “haunts” that have taken up the majority of the Halloween season. Whether they be smaller, home-based huanted houses or warehouses decked out in scary decorations and masked workers chasing people out while trying to make them piss their pants, […]

Talks of a potential CRITTERS reboot have been making their way around circles for ages, but fans of the series that began with Stephen Herek’s 1986 film can at least know that while the only information given about the redux thus far, is that it’ll be via “Blue Ribbon Content”, the newly started digital division […]

Icons of Fright Interview With POKER NIGHT/SEE NO EVIL 2’s Michael Eklund!!

Eklund

Michael Eklund has done a hell of a job making a name for himself by playing characters that aren’t easy to forget. His role in the 2011 Xavier Gens’ directed film THE DIVIDE was pure insanity, and he stole the show in 2013’s THE CALL. Not allowing himself to slow down, in between appearing in […]

js

*Editor’s note: Our own Josh Soriano gave us his Top Ten of the year, so enjoy!-Jerry I want to make a quick disclaimer before you read this: I’ve somehow managed to not see a fair amount of the most highly-praised horror films on everyone’s top ten lists this year like CHEAP THRILLS, STARRY EYES, ​or […]

Top Ten List Mainstay STARRY EYES Hitting Bluray/DVD This February; Reversible Art Included

unnamed (6)

Dennis Widmyer & Kevin Kolsch’s STARRY EYES is resting comfortably in most of this year’s Top Ten lists ( all of us at Icons of Fright loved it), and rightfully so, it’s deserving of its accolades. Very few films capture that “how far will you go for what you want?” question so perfectly as Widmyer/Kolsch’s […]

Bluray Review: TUSK

Kevin Smith is definitely at an interesting point in his career. Once the king of the indie comedy genre, Smith has worked hard at dipping his toes in genres that typically wouldn’t be associated with the same guy whose characters complained about working on their day off, or various other topics that many people found […]
