    The Icons of Fright Team Remembers Wes Craven

    We all have heroes, and this week, one of the true horror heroes and legends, Wes Craven, passed away after fighting brain cancer. To say that Craven’s passing has affected the horror community would be an understatement, a statement that just doesn’t articulate how much of an absent we’ll have from here on out. The […]

    Bluray Review: BACKCOUNTRY & THE HARVEST

    While Scream Factory has earned the reputation for putting out fan-favorites and long lost genre films, one of the many things that impresses me on a regular basis, is how good the films they acquire or release via their partnership with IFC Midnight are. Films like THE BABADOOK, EXTRATERRESTRIAL, and now two of the most […]

    Bluray Review: THE SENDER (1982)

    Giving fans one hell of a telepathic thriller, Roger Christian (BANDIDO)’s 1982 film THE SENDER has finally made its way to Bluray, and it’s one entertaining ride that really holds up incredibly well. Following Gail Farmer (Kathryn Harrold, RAW DEAL, THE HUNTER), a woman who works at a mental hospital and her interest in a […]

    Satan, Gore and METAL Fill up New Trailer For Horror/Comedy DEATHGASM!!

    Earlier this year, during SXSW, we were able to catch Jason Lei Howden’s heavy metal splatterfest DEATHGASM (review). It was, to put it lightly, one of the most impressive horror/comedies of all time and will without a doubt, go down as one of the genre’s lasting gems. The official trailer for the film has now dropped […]

First Trailer For THE LAST WITCH HUNTER Arrives; Pretty Impressive Cast

Horror/action hybrids are always a gamble to me. Sometimes they tend to discard all horror elements and end up being stale (see I, FRANKENSTEIN and the majority of the UNDERWORLD films), but then again, there are ones that combine both elements to be a great combination of both (CONSTANTINE). One film that has been on […]

Fantasia Films Fest 2015 review: SHE WHO MUST BURN

Horror movies that delve into social commentary can be a tricky situation. While playing with visual metaphors is what good movies utilize, spreading a message can either be thought provoking or something to laugh at. The rich literally feeding off the poor in SOCIETY is very much in your face, but matches the movie’s campy […]

Icons of Fright Talks TRUTH OR DARE/MANIA With Actress/Director Jessica Cameron!

While in Burbank last month, I met up with actress/director Jessica Cameron, (who is responsible for shocking the hell out of festival goers with the in your face TRUTH OF DARE, as well as the upcoming MANIA) for a sit down discussion regarding working as an actress, director, producer and many other roles in the […]

Bluray review: GHOSTHOUSE/WITCHERY

THE FILMS As a die-hard aficionado who began his love affair with horror cinema right smack dab at the beginning of the 80’s, I get slight criticism from time to time for proclaiming such a fond love for any fright film or slasher flick produced during that time period. I also get chastised more times […]

FRIGHT AT HOME – August 4th: Snakes, Bears, Zombies and Cannibals!!

This week sees quite a few releases hitting shelves/stores, with everything from giant snakes fighting giant crocs to post-apocalyptic survival and hey, there’s even some killer bears and cannibals thrown in for good measure. We thought we’d shine the spotlight on a few of the standout genre (and a couple of non-genre) films that are […]
