    Review: GREEN ROOM

    Director Jeremy Saulnier made a lot of genre fans giddy with excitement, when in 2007 he unleashed one of the most lovable horror comedies around: MURDER PARTY. It seemed like the impressive debut would immediately lead to other projects, but we didn’t get a sophomore film from Saulnier until 2014’s BLUE RUIN. Where as MURDER […]

    TV Review: DEAD OF SUMMER – Episode 1: “Patience”

    I’m going to put this out there right away: Ever since I was a kid CANDYMAN has always scared the shit out of me. Whenever it comes on, I can not watch it alone. The Philip Glass score gives me the creeps and instantly showers my body with anxiety. One scene in particular is when […]

    From A Wizard to A Corpse: Shannon on Daniel Radcliffe

    When I was in 8th grade, I remember hearing about a book that was coming out called HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE, and like all good Christian schools do, the book was immediately banned.  Being a young one who was always interested in the dark side of life, I knew I had to have […]

THE NEW BLOOD: JOVY SKOL

*Editor’s Note– Jovy Skol has been a very important part of the Icons of Fright team for over a year now, but until now, we’ve never had too much of a “profile” series. Since we’ve accumulated a decent amount of wonderful staffers over the last year, we thought we’d let Jovy speak for himself on […]

OUTCAST

TV Reviews: OUTCAST, SSN01 -Episode 3: “ALL ALONE NOW” & Episode 4: “A WRATH UNSEEN”

EPISODE 3: “ALL ALONE NOW” Episode 2 of OUTCAST was full of flashbacks that were difficult to differentiate from each other, causing it to be a bit repetitive. We get it already: Kyle’s mom beat the shit out of him as a kid and it was no surprise revelation that she was possessed. The surprise […]
