REVIEW – MANIAC (2012)

*Warning: Mild spoilers primarily about technical aspects of the movie follow. Like most genre fans, anytime I hear the news about yet another remake, I sigh and ask myself “why?” But I’ve also decided that these remakes need to be looked at on an individual basis. For example, MANIAC. The basic plot (or lack thereof) […]

Steven Munroe Returns to Direct I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE Sequel!

Something I didn’t really anticipate coming across was the announcement that Steven Monroe, director of the 2010 remake of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE would be returning to direct I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE TOO, a sequel to that film, but alas the story broke this week and details have recently been released. “Naturally beautiful, Jessica […]

We’re just days away from the theatrical release of SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D! I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one out there excited about this.  As a fan of both the video game franchise and the 2006 film, I’ve been counting the days down to the premiere of the sequel for a while.  For […]

Get A Glimpse of The EVIL DEAD In This Teaser For A Teaser Trailer!

A Red Band trailer is coming tomorrow for Fede Alvarez’s EVIL DEAD reboot, so until then a teaser-for-a-teaser has debuted to whet our appetites (and collectively annoy us). I hate this currently popular marketing trend just as much as you do, but until some Deadites emerge from the fruit cellar to swallow some studio interns […]

PRISON Finds A Home With Scream Factory!

Before Renny Harlin further transformed Freddy Krueger into a wise cracking anti-hero with the MTV-toned A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, he came to America to make a horror film for Empire Pictures (one of my favorite, now defunct, studios’ who brought us Terrorvision, Re-Animator, and Dolls to name a few) titled […]

Santa Knows You’re Naughty! SILENT NIGHT Hits Theaters Nov 30th & Blu-ray Dec 4th!

We’re big fans of independent genre director Steven Miller here at Icons of Fright. This past week, Miller’s homage to 80’s Amblin films, Under The Bed, premiered at Screamfest, where Aaron was able to catch it and essentially loved it (read his review ASAP!). Even I wrote a sterling review earlier this year for his […]

Screamfest 2012 – Highlights From Shorts Block 3 & 4

This year’s Screamfest has since finished its week long run. There were a few highlights of the festival for me and I’d be remiss if I were to leave out the short films that screened this past Friday night. It seems like Shorts Block 3 & 4 had a plethora (that’s right, plethora) of amazing […]
