    Cult Classic SONNY BOY Gets January Bluray Release Via Scream Factory

    Robert Martin Carroll’s 1989 shocker SONNY BOY is one odd film. Displaying one of David Carradine’s most memorable roles as a kidnapping transvestite, the film is an off-kilter horror gem, teaming Carradine with CRIMEWAVE star Paul L. Smith and the always entertaining Brad Dourif (CHILD’S PLAY, THE EXORCIST III) for a tale of violence and […]

    In a perfect world, every film would be as exciting as THE WORLD OF KANAKO. Tetsuya Nakashima’s bloody as all hell mystery is a genuine classic in the making,  a film so deeply layered, that it’s impossible not to hold every other film of its kind to the impressive standard set by Nakashima’s tale of sex, […]

    Bluray Review: GHOST STORY

    When it comes to either cult-favorites or long lost horror films being released on Bluray for the first time, very few companies show their love for the genre as much as Scream Factory does. Whether it be fan-favorites like HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION boxset, TV horror double features such as THE INITIATION OF SARAH & ARE YOU […]

    Crazy Triple Features: Olive Films’ VOODOO MAN, UNDERCOVER BLUES & PHASE IV Blurays

    As weird as it can be, I love to take three films that have NOTHING to do with each other and watch them back to back. Sure, nothing beats binge watching any of my favorite franchises like the HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13TH or A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films, but this odd triple feature approach […]

    Editorial: An In Depth Look At Why TV’s SCREAM QUEENS Matters by Leonel VHS

    Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were […]



The last couple of years have led to the popularity of crowd funding hitting an all time high and it’s become a bit of the go to method for many film projects. Back in 2012, director Sean Cain attempted this method with his thriller BREATH OF HATE in order to lock in a theatrical and Bluray/DVD […]


Joe Anderson, Luke Evans Leads XLrator Media Thriller FLUTTER; Now Available Via VOD

Walking into a film that has a cast as impressive as Joe Anderson (THE GREY, HORNS, TV’s Hannibal), Luke Evans (DRACULA UNTOLD, HIGH RISE), Anna Anissimova (THE WHISTLEBLOWER) and Billy Zane (DEMON KNIGHT, TITANIC), one can only imagine how interesting the film will be, and judging from the trailer for the now available on VOD thriller FLUTTER, […]


TV Review: AMERICAN HORROR STORY: HOTEL Episode 7: “Flicker”

Writer Scott Snyder has created a name for himself in the comic book world with his BATMAN series and, lately, the ongoing horror comics, WYTCHES. Another series his fans adore is AMERICAN VAMPIRE, a genre bending reimagination of vampire folklore, mainly surrounding Skinner Sweet, a new breed of the species who leaves a mark in […]


Review: I AM THOR

There’s certainly a large amount of pain and suffering that comes along with trying to fulfill your dreams. The blood, sweat, tears and toll on an individual is often overlooked and that’s an unfortunate fact. Some people face the hardships that come with territory and throw in the towel, and some endure and keep it […]


Interview: Michael Biehn Talks Comedy Series 24 HOUR RENTAL, ALIEN 5!

When I joined the Icons of Fright team as a contributor a few years back, the first interview I conducted was with a childhood hero of mine, Michael Biehn. Biehn and his wife/producing partner Jennifer Blanc-Biehn were in Los Angeles, doing a signing at Burbank’s Dark Delicacies and were both nice enough to take a […]


Festival hit SHUT IN Renamed INTRUDERS; Hitting VOD/Theaters This January

Adam Schindler’s INTRUDERS (formerly titled SHUT IN) was a hit during its festival run and thanks to Momentum Pictures, the home invasion shocker is hitting theaters/VOD this January 15th. While the plot might remind you fright fanatics a little bit of YOU’RE NEXT, trust me, it’s quite an interesting twist on the home invasion subgenre […]


Bluray Review: SHOCK ‘EM DEAD (1990)

There’s something magical about a lot of the cheesy films that the late ’80s and early ’90s put out. Wild stories that wouldn’t even be a thought to a studio execs these days, the films that filled VHS shelves and gathered dust in video stores everywhere are the ones I loved to check out. Some […]
