Contest - Win the 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray of DAY OF THE DEAD!

We love contests! We love it even more when we're able to open them up both our US and UK readers! We've got 3 copies of Arrow Video's 25th anniversary Blu-ray of George A. Romero's DAY OF THE DEAD to give away. All you have to do is get us your name and mailing address and send it into: dayofthedead@iconsoffright.com This 2 disc set, which will drop April 5th in the UK, is loaded with special features:

Day of the Dead Blu-ray! 

-Specially commissioned for this 25th Anniversary Blu-ray release of Day Of The Dead, the world exclusive 24-page comic ‘Day Of The Day: Desertion’ is written by ‘Hack/Slash Meets Re-Animator’ co-writer, Barry Keating, and ‘Halloween: Nightdance’ creator, Stefan Hutchinson.

-'For Every Dawn There Is A Day’ collector’s booklet, which is an essay on the making of the movie that collects brand new interviews with Romero, Savini, editor Pasquale Buba, assistant director/composer John Harrison and actors Joe Pilato, Lori Cardille and Gary Steele', written by Calum Waddell

-Two all-new documentaries:

‘Joe Of The Dead’ (directed by Calum Waddell) actor Joe Pilato talks about his career in movies - from his early appearance in the little-seen Pittsburgh horror outing ‘Effects’ (which also featured Romero regulars Tom Savini and John Harrison) to his small parts in ‘Dawn Of The Dead’ and ‘Knightriders’ and, of course, his work as Captain Rhodes in Day Of The Dead. In addition, Pilato addresses the remake, where his career went following Day of The Dead's disastrous box office upon its initial release and his thoughts on the movie being rediscovered and hailed as a classic. 

In ‘Travelogue of the Dead’ (directed by Naomi Holwill), we join Pilato as he travels across Dublin, Edinburgh and Glasgow in October 2009 celebrating the 25th anniversary of Day Of The Dead and witness him meeting the fans, reciting his most famous lines from the movie - live and on stage - and drinking with the best of them!

The two-disc 25th Anniversary Edition Day Of The Dead (cert. 18) will be released on Blu-ray (£24.99) by Arrow Video on April 5th, 2010.

In 1968, the DEAD walked...  Now the DEAD will talk!  And there's a chance they'll be talking to you!  Icons of Fright, in conjunction with the people behind the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD documentary AUTOPSY OF THE DEAD, are offering three (3) great prizes, exclusively to fans of Icons of Fright!

Autopsy of the Dead DVD

(1) Grand Prize:  1 copy of AUTOPSY OF THE DEAD; 1 AUTOPSY poster; exclusive, signed 8x10s from people involved in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.

2nd and 3rd Prizes:  (each) 1 copy of AUTOPSY OF THE DEAD; 1 AUTOPSY poster.

Enter the contest by sending your name, age and address in an email titled "AUTOPSY" to autopsy@iconsoffright.com.  Winners will be chosen on Friday, December 4.


Want a sneak peek at what you could be winning?  Check out a link to an Icons exclusive set of clips culled from interviews recorded for the documentary here!  And make sure to watch the clip with Icons of Fright friend Gary Streiner, the man behind the Living Dead Festival!

Let's thank our good friend and AUTOPSY's producer Jim Cirronella for his donations of the goodies for this contest.  If you don't manage to win a copy, I'd advise you pick one up on AUTOPSY's official website.  And go check out Homepage of the Dead's official forum, and NOTLD68's site for even more footage shot for the documentary.

Here's the site's official press release for the doc:


In 1968, the DEAD walked...

Now the DEAD will talk.

Board up the windows and doors!   More than 40 years after filming the 1968 horror masterpiece, Night of the Living Dead, the "dead" return in an all-new documentary from director Jeff Carney entitled Autopsy of the Dead.

Now you may be asking, "What, another documentary?  Is there much more that can be said about this classic film?"  If so, the answer to your question is a resounding yes.  We've dug deep to exhume new insight from many of the contributors to the original Night of the Living Dead who have never before been interviewed in print or on camera.  Despite there being an overwhelming number of remakes, reboots, theatrical adaptations, and literary works about this single film, it is simply astounding and quite possibly negligent that there has yet to be a truly thorough document of the living history behind the legendary movie that has attained the status of a cultural landmark.  Autopsy of the Dead takes the first big step in correcting this oversight.

Packed with extensive interviews, never-before-seen color photos and behind-the-scenes footage, visits to the original filming locations and other surprises, get ready for the most in-depth visual document on the making of the great American horror film that just won't stay dead.

They're coming to get you...


This is a sweet contest made possible by Jim and the fine people behind AUTOPSY OF THE DEAD.  Make sure to enter, because you've got to be in it to win it (if the "it" referred to is a cemetery plot in Evans City!).

Win The New 15th Anniversary NATURAL BORN KILLERS DVD!

NBK Box ArtThe October Big Giveaways continue at Icons of Fright. The fine folks at Warner Bros. have supplied us with copies of the 15th Anniversary Edition of Oliver Stone's 1990's classic NATURAL BORN KILLERS.

Wow, 15 years ago? At the time I had to buy a ticket to another movie just so I could sneak in and see the highly controversial film, which of course, blew my little 15 year old mind away. And who could forget the Trent Reznor produced soundtrack featuring 90's acts like L7 and the Cowboy Junkies. It's really a time-capsule of a moment in film making and music.

If you'd like to enter the contest just shoot us an email over to: nbk@iconsoffright.com. Be sure to give us your mailing address so we can send it to you. Contest ends Oct. 31st! (Halloween).

You can check out the official trailer at our previous post HERE.


THIRST is slated to release in select theaters July 31st.

THIRST official site: www.thirstmovie.com

Synopsis: A priest becomes a vampire…another man’s wife is coveted…a deadly seduction triggers murder. Thirst is the new film from director Park Chan-wook (Old Boy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance). Already a boxoffice smash in Korea , Thirst was honored with the Prix du Jury [Jury Prize] at the 2009 Cannes International Film Festival.

Continuing his explorations of human existence in extreme circumstances, the director spins a tale that he conceived and then developed over several years with co-screenwriter Chung Seo-kyung.

Sang-hyun (played by top Korean star Song Kang-ho, of The Host) is a priest who cherishes life; so much so, that he selflessly volunteers for a secret vaccine development project meant to eradicate a deadly virus. But the virus takes the priest, and a blood transfusion is urgently ordered up for him. The blood he receives is infected, so Sang-hyun lives – but now exists as a vampire. Struggling with his newfound carnal desire for blood, Sang-hyun’s faith is further strained when a childhood friend’s wife, Tae-ju (Kim Ok-vin), comes to him asking for his help in escaping her life. Sang-hyun soon plunges into a world of sensual pleasures, finding himself on intimate terms with the Seven Deadly Sins.
