    Review: Dexter Down Under

    THINGS I LEARNED FROM WATCHING THE HOSTEL TRILOGY IN ONE SITTING

    There are moments in my life where I make extremely unwise decisions and I will be the last to admit it when I’ve made a mistake.  However, this is an instance where I will scream from the rooftops how much of an idiot I am.  I’m the type of person that likes to watch franchises […]

Icons of Fright’s Writing Mixtape, Part Four: Josh Soriano

I rarely get alone time in my current living situation, which can sometimes make it difficult to get into the proper head space for writing. As an artist, I’m already heavily critical of what I’m working on, so it’s helpful to be able to release some anxiety though music. Besides inducing a creative break, music […]

Tribeca Films’ THE DEMON’S ROOK, A Love Letter To Italian Horror; Trailer Gory As Hell

Today’s entries into the zombie subgenre typically fall into the repetitive slow-walking/fast-running categories, very rarely offering much else.
