We’re going to make this a regular series, with Writing MixTapes posted from the Icons crew every once in a while, in an attempt to perhaps […]

    THE RAID’s Original Score Blasts Onto Vinyl From Death Waltz Records!

    Gareth Evans’ game-changing action epic THE RAID was a shotgun blast to the face when it exploded onto our shores, collectively showing us that we had a new classic on our hands. One thing we didn’t get to experience was the film’s original score, from composers Aria Praygoi & Fajar Yuskemal, but now thanks to […]

    Jerry Smith’s TOP TEN HORROR FILMS OF 2014

    Jesus Christ, this has been one hell of a year for horror. There were so many genre films that for one reason or another, really spoke to me. Some were intense experiences, ones that led me to think about certain parts of life differently. Some were just plain ol’ fun entertainment and just brightened my […]

Icons of Fright interview With THE DEVICE Director Jeremy Berg!!

Bypassing the flash and quick cuts of a lot of today’s horror films, director Jeremy Berg, along with this production company, The October People, have done a great job putting out very story-driven genre films. Having directed THE INVOKING and now THE DEVICE (out today!), Berg’s films are closer to the slow-burn approach that horror […]

Scream Factory Sends THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA Your Way This February!

While a lot of horror fans tend to talk about Freddy nonstop when Robert Englund’s name comes up, a film and role that is sometimes overlooked and underrated, is the Dwight H. Little-helmed 1989 film, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. A gruesome and gory take on the 1910 Gaston Leroux novel, the film has always been […]

Review: CAM2CAM (2014)

Anyone who has ever messed around with Chatroulette or similar sites can agree on  the fact that sometimes people can be creepy. You never know if you’re going to talk to someone just wanting some conversation, or if you’re going to get someone flashing you or in the plot of CAM2CAM, stalk and kill you. […]

Review: THE DEVICE (2014)

These days, alien abduction films tend to be limited to some form of POV and/or found footage angle, bypassing the classic approach, letting things play out in a narrative and visually appealing way. What was once one of the most terrifying subgenres just doesn’t do much for me these days, and more times than not, […]

Review: AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR

Nicholas McCarthy hit the horror scene hard with his 2012 feature debut, THE PACT, catching viewers off guard and getting tons of praise within the horror community as well. With such a strong first film, the pressures of following up that debut could make a lesser man cave under the pressure, but alas, McCarthy obviously […]

Review: DAY OF THE MUMMY

Oh mummy movies with huge faces and full blown action-extravaganza DVD covers. I mean, judging from the look of this one, DAY OF THE MUMMY is sure to be a full on EPIC adventure film, full of mummy-horror and a lot of chasing jeeps and guns, right? Sadly, the reality of the film tends to […]
