    Icons of Fright Q&A With NORTHMEN – A VIKING SAGA Star/Amon Amarth-Vocalist JOHAN HEGG!!

    NORTHMEN – A VIKING SAGA is making its theatrical and digital HD run this week (it also hits VOD and DVD/BD on August 11th), and it’s quite the action film, filled to the brim with Viking fights, tough as hell villains/heroes and is as entertaining as action films get. We thought it would be fun […]

    “Another Hero Gone”: Jerry Remembers Roddy Piper

    I’m sitting here, still shocked by the news of Roddy Piper’s passing. It hit harder than I would expect, because it reminded me of childhood, and how so much of mine was filled with Piper. Sitting down with my older brother,  we would watch every WWF pay-per-view event, and with  how much of my time […]

    Fantasia Film Fest review: THE DEMOLISHER

    There’s a level of accomplishment that very few films are able to pull  off: being able to be striking and effective without having to rely on continual dialogue. These days, the typical audience member tends to put their money and attention towards films that are fast-paced and have a lack of room to breathe, and […]

    Beyond Fright Review: OLIVER, STONED

    The man child is a concept that feels pretty heavy in male driven comedies, more in particular to those starring Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler. Adult men who refuse to grow up and partake in toilet humor rack up box office tickets and seemingly influence a generation of young adults surrounded by statistics provided by […]

    El Rey’s FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series Returns This August; New Faces Along For the Ride

    The first season of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series was full of unexpected twists, making the show stand on its own, venturing far off from the Robert Rodriguez film it was based on. It’s was definitely an interesting debut season,which from we were recently sent via El Rey, will be taken into even crazier […]

BITE

Fantasia Film Fest review: BITE

Within the last few years, the body-horror/”we make poor decisions and our bodies begin to fall apart” subgenre has seen somewhat of a boom, with films like CONTRACTED and ANTIVIRAL really doing great jobs at putting our bodies under the microscope. Like most genre hits (whether critical or fan-loved) though, when you get one or […]

EATERS

Lionsgate Sends Road Trip Gone Wrong Flick EATERS To DVD This October!!

Five kids wanting to have a fun as hell road trip and it ending up being filled with the kids running for their lives. Not the most original setup for a horror film, but hey, if you’re like me, you’ll give anything a chance or two, and Lionsgate’s upcoming EATERS (hitting DVD October 6th) looks […]

Burt and Those Damned Graboids are back in TREMORS 5: BLOODLINES…with Jamie Kennedy

If you’ve seen any of the film in the TREMORS series, then chances are that you already know what’s in store with this one (and that isn’t a bad thing). The series has always been a fun one, and while none of the sequels have full captured the magic of the Kevin Bacon-led original film, […]

Horsehead

Review: HORSEHEAD

I’m more than certain that there have been many instances in which a horror film auteur experiences horrible disappointment when they have high expectations going into a film they’ve never seen before.  It has happened to us all at one point or another with a number of different factors contributing; whether it’s the overhyping of […]

FELT BANNER

Icons of Fright talks to FELT Director Jason Banker and Star/Co-Writer Amy Everson

Jason Banker’s FELT is now in theaters and is a film that screams to be watched. Revolving around a victim of rape and the psychological damage she goes through and the various ways she copes with it, the film is quite easily one of the best of the year. Banker, along with the film’s star […]

Bluray Review: ISLAND OF DEATH

THE FILM As a horror fan and budding collector back in the heydays of the original television broadcasts of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and when Erasure and Depeche Mode were at the height of their popularity in the United States, I would spend many a free afternoon with my nose stuck in books courtesy […]
