Icons of Fright Interview With THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE Writer/Director, Chris Sparling!!

taiban

Chris Sparling turned heads in circles when his 2010 screenplay BURIED was made into one of the most intense films in years. The Rodrigo Cortés-directed and Ryan Reynolds-led film brought the suspense in heavy doses and kept viewers completely on edge until its very end. Following that film, Sparling wrote another confined area film, 2012’s ATM. […]

ScreenHunter_217 Jan. 19 18.49

I came across this video from a Facebook post that FRIDAY THE 13TH writer Victor Miller had posted earlier tonight, and for some reason, it deeply resonated with me to the point of wanting to share it with you Icons of Fright readers. As horror fans, we all come from various backgrounds and walks of […]

A 25TH ANNIVERSARY LOOK BACK AT: THE EXORCIST III (1990)

EIII

Mention THE EXORCIST in a conversation and most horror fans will declare it the scariest film of all time. While that declaration is well deserved (it’s an absolutely perfect film in every capacity), a film that is quite often overlooked when it comes to the legacy of that film, is the third film in the series, […]

Review: THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE

TAI

It’s a miracle that as horror fans, we haven’t seen everything under the sun by now. It’s rare for a film to come along that, while it might fall somewhat within a particular genre or subgenre, not only breathes new life into said subgenre, but does so in a way that you’re able to lose […]

This movie had me from “Reclusive blogger”, but even taking that out of it, it sounds like one to check out. IFC Midnight, who has been kicking some major ass the last few years with many great releases, are getting ready to bring Chad Archibald (ANTISOCIAL) and Matt Wiele’s Sci-Fi/Horror hybrid EJECTA to both theaters and […]

Beyond Fright Review: THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY

TFOJ

The art of creating a successful mystery seems to be lost on many of today’s filmmakers and their films. Instead of allowing a solid story to play out in front of you and keep you guessing, a lot of films falling into the mystery/thriller genre tend to utilize the same ol’ twists and turns we’ve […]
