Blood

Gerard Johnstone’s HOUSEBOUND took the festival circuit by storm and gained tons of acclaim all across the board (rightfully so, our review hits tomorrow). The New Zealand-based horror/comedy is by far one of the best horror hybrids I’ve seen in ages, being the absolutely perfect combination of making you laugh hysterically one minute and grabbing […]

Review: SUMMER OF BLOOD (S.O.B.)

sob

Some guys you just love to hate. People so despicable and void of anything positive that you can’t help but to watch, those guys. The history of cinema is full of of people like that, and thanks to writer/director/star Onur Turkel, we have another bastard to love, with his film SUMMER OF BLOOD (or S.O.B., […]

ScreenHunter_157 Oct. 15 11.59

Rob Hall (LIGHTNING BUG, LAID TO REST/LAID TO REST II:CHROMESKULL)’s FEAR CLINIC series was a pretty big hit for the late FEARnet in 2009, so much so, that Hall and Co. decided to make a feature film out of the “face your fears” series that starred horror icons Robert Englund and Danielle Harris.

Charming Men with Side Smirks: A comparison of FRIGHT NIGHT’s Jerry Dandridge and THE GUEST’s “David”

PicMonkey Collage

At the peak of my transition from childhood into womanhood, I rented a VHS copy of FRIGHT NIGHT from my local video store.  I had small crushes growing up on people like the boy who sat in front of me in choir, but when my 12 year old eyes saw Christopher Sarandon’s performance as Jerry […]

Having temporarily moved on to direct 2013’s HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, Wirkola returned to the film that made a genre name for himself with this year’s sequel, DEAD […]

Icons Pirate Commentary: THE WARRIORS with Sean Clark & Rob G!

Warriors-Commentary

It’s been a while since we here at Icons Of Fright have been able to host a new “pirate commentary.” And so we were excited when the prospect of this special WARRIORS one came together. I’ve always been a fan of the film; I have vague memories of seeing it during frequent re-runs on cable. A […]

Review: EVILS OF THE NIGHT (1985)

EOTN

Oh, lost cult films from the ’80s. Little gems like these are forgotten about and life goes on for the horror fan, but then Gorgon Video does something crazy and releases films like EVILS OF THE NIGHT, and well..I’m not complaining. A film so odd, so  scatterbrained and borderline porno that you find yourself wondering […]
