    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 […]

    Icons of Fright Chat With LOST AFTER DARK Writer Bo Ransdell and Director Ian Kessner

    Anchor Bay’s LOST AFTER DARK, an homage to the slasher films of the ’80s is now on DVD/Bluray (review soon), and we thought it would be nice to chat with the film’s writer, Bo Ransdell, along with Director Ian Kessner. We talk about the challenges of paying homage to the films they grew up loving […]

    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 […]

Bluray Review: CELLAR DWELLER/CATACOMBS

I love nothing more than to educate a “horror newbie” – someone unfamiliar with the genre as a whole who has decided to take their curiosity and take that plunge headfirst into the wonderful world of slashers and fright flicks. I get excited when I’m able to show someone “the ropes” and teach them everything […]

Pirate Commentary: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE

There’s nothing better than knocking back a few drinks with friends (I opt for some water or Dr. Pepper most of the time), eating some good pizza and enjoying an entertaining horror film, especially if it’s one that you hold pretty close to your heart. While it has found its audience more in the last […]

FRIGHT AT HOME – July 7th, 2015: Arnold, Aliens, Ghosts and Robots!!

This  a week of releases that really spread all across the board, with everything from Scream Factory’s releases of DARK SUMMER and ALIEN OUTPOST, to the Schwarzenegger-led zombie drama MAGGIE, and tons of other films that really give cinephiles a solid amount of variety to choose from. We thought we’d take a few of the […]

Review: HEIR

Sexual abuse isn’t anything new to the horror genre as films like I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT revel on women being abused leading to an avenging conclusion. Accusations of misogyny are often brought up as the purpose of utilizing these sequences are questionable if they actually are a quality […]

Review: ALL AMERICAN BULLY

Bullying has always been around, but hit the spotlight in recent years with the ever growing popularity of social media and viral videos. While the constant need to share everything online has spread across all demographics, the concept of going viral is still a fascinating piece. A mere photo of an all American cashier at […]

Review: FIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD

There are filmmakers out there who themselves are die-hard horror fans that spend hours upon hours researching and brainstorming to try and come up with an idea of creating a film that will go against the norm and become something that will stand on its own and apart from the other films competing for that […]
