Icons Of Fright’s WRITING MIXTAPE, Part Three: Natty

MixTapeNat

Everything I do tends to revolve around music. It’s mandatory that I reserve about 45 minutes of my day to unwind with some good tunes and headphones. I can’t even begin my day right if I don’t enjoy music with my morning coffee, so it only makes sense that I HAVE to listen to music while […]

Icons of Fright’s WRITING MIXTAPE, PART ONE: Jerry Smith

MixTape

With Beyond Fright, we like to focus on things somewhat on the fringe of horror. Whether it be great music or just  films that might be on the tip of something based in genres that might not be considered “horror” by most standards, but still have that great genre vibe. While brainstorming ideas for articles, […]

Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are pretty familiar with working side by side by now. Having collaborated together on over half a dozen projects (including both V/H/S films, as well as A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE and last year’s YOU’RE NEXT), it’s safe to say that they make a pretty solid team. After scoring big with genre fans […]

“All Of My Friends Are Monsters, and My Heroes Are Survivors”: An Ode to The Grandmother of Scream Queens

TCM

Yesterday, we all found out that Marilyn Burns had passed away, and while it might not have affected some, it certainly did leave a mark on horror fans everywhere. It seems that a lot of people throw stories up about the passing of genre greats almost immediately, and for a good while today, I fought […]

TCM Classics Bringing Bogart/Bacall Noir Classics To DVD This December

Dark-Passage-3

There are certain types of films that kind of go hand in hand with horror/thrillers/genre films. Though not specifically horror, the crime noir sub-genre gets me as excited as mentally possible, with enough twists and turns, and atmosphere to last for days. I’m a big fan of double features, so on most nights, instead of […]
