    Belgian Boyscout Slasher CUB Hitting TIFF’s Midnight Madness Lineup; Trailer Looks Like Bloody Fun

    I love hearing about up and coming projects that give off a fresh take on the horror genre. Back in May of last year, the folks at Twitch reported on a crowd funding project to help finish a Belgian slasher film called CUB. The synopsis sounded like a lot of fun, and something that horror fans […]

    Beyond Fright: THE HUNTINGTONS’ “Let’s Go To Haddonfield”!!

    Who doesn’t love the Ramones? It’s almost blasphemy to not have some sort of admiration or at least respect for the punk rock pioneers, and like the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While I have been a fan of The Ramones for most of my life, there was a period in my […]

    JUMP SCARES: OPTION OR OBSESSION?

    I’ve been writing publicly about horror films for a little over five years, and I’ve been watching a healthy dose of horror films for over two decades.  One would think that after watching so many films, I’d be desensitized to all of the traditional tricks and tropes that trigger a response from the average audience […]

    Fright Exclusive Interview With HEAVENLY SWORD Screenwriter Todd Farmer!!

    Todd Farmer has definitely made a name for himself in genre films. Having written the “Jason Voorhees in space” FRIDAY THE 13TH sequel, JASON X, as well as co-writing films like MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, DRIVE ANGRY and the now lost HALLOWEEN 3D with frequent collaborator Patrick Lussier, Farmer is a staple in the horror community, […]

    Review: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW (2014)

    Theatrical horror is notoriously disappointing, so the expectations I had for AS ABOVE, SO BELOW were almost nonexistent.  The lure of cave exploration (a la THE DESCENT) is 100% the only reason I went to see the film, and I’m glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed myself.  I […]

Natty’s Top Five Mothers In Horror!

We all love our mothers, and sometimes we make jokes about loving our friends’ mothers.  Especially able to be loved, are matriarchs in horror films. The bad ones make us appreciate the moms that we were given. Even if my mother didn’t understand my obsession with wanting to dress up like Kurt Cobain every day in Junior High, at […]

Review: I, FRANKENSTEIN (2014)

With vampires, werewolves, and zombies all being re-imagined for newer audiences, it was only a matter of time before everyone’s favorite bolt-neck was treated to a glossy and updated redo. While that might sound exciting to some, the idea of the folks who made the horror-lite but action aplenty UNDERWORLD franchise taking the reins on […]

Fright Exclusive Interview with Jen & Sylvia Soska at Texas Frightmare Weekend!

Jen and Sylvia Soska may seem like indistinguishable mirror images in posters and on websites, but seeing the twins in person at Texas Frightmare Weekend confirmed my suspicion that the two were distinct. Jen has a slightly more narrow face, and a deeper  voice. Sylvia prefers red lips, while Jen tends to wear a darker […]

Review: ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE (2014)

Anyone with even a slight knowledge of Lucky McKee and Chris Silvertson’s prior filmography might be caught off guard walking into ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE. Sure the two filmmakers had previously co-directed an early in their careers incarnation of the film before, but with films like MAY, THE WOODS and THE WOMAN being directed by McKee and Silvertson’s […]

Fright Exclusive Interview With Master of Horror JOHN CARPENTER!!

The name John Carpenter is synonymous with the horror genre just about as much as breathing is with life. The filmmaker helmed such classics as HALLOWEEN, THE FOG, THE THING, PRINCE OF DARKNESS and many more great films, held close to horror fans’ hearts. The distinct style of his films, his usage of what’s called “the Carpenter […]
