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 […]

Nazi Zombies Return When DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD Hits DVD/Bluray This December!

DeadSnow2-BD

Tommy Wirkola’s 2009 film DEAD SNOW was a fun time, giving horror fans a gory, Nazi zombie-filled horror comedy that fans seemed to really latch onto. 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 […]

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 […]

Review: WEREWOLF RISING

Mention the word “werewolf”, and you automatically gain a certain amount of viewers that will take the time out of their day (or night) to watch a movie with the sometimes scary beast. The werewolf subgenre was at one time a booming one, with films like AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, THE HOWLING, THE WOLFEN […]

Alex de la Iglesia has always had a knack for combining elements that would not typically go together as well as they do for his films. 1995‘s THE DAY OF THE BEAST took the concept of three men TRYING to bring about the Antichrist, and turned it into a hybrid of horror and what was […]

DeathermanPhoto1

The ’90s were full of big budget studio horror entries, like SCREAM, URBAN LEGEND and even some good ones like DEMON KNIGHT (SCREAM fans relax, I’m just messing with ya), but the movies that were always the most fun to check out for me, were the ones friends would make on crappy VHS camcorders that […]
