    IFC Midnight & Scream Factory Team For ‘THE BABADOOK’ Release 4/14!

    We’d heard early rumors that the fine folks over at Scream Factory might be putting out one of the most acclaimed horror films of the last year on home video. Turns out those rumors were half right. Scream Factory is actually teaming up with IFC Midnight to release the Blu-Ray/ DVD or THE BABADOOK on […]

    REVIEW: Digging Up The Marrow

    I’ve never been particularly shy about my love of most of the stuff put out by Adam Green.  I’ve gone on record multiple times discussing how HOLLISTON was one of my biggest “pick-me-ups” during cancer recovery and how I firmly believe “The Dog Monologue” from FROZEN is probably my favorite horror movie monologue since the […]

    News Clips/Stills Released For FEAR CLINIC; Scaring Horror Fans on DVD/Bluray February 10th!

    The Rob Hall/Aaron Drane created FEAR CLINIC web-series was a big hit with horror fans, when it first aired on the now defunct (and sorely missed) FEARnet back in 2009. Anchored by genre legend (and Freddy himself) Robert Englund, the series dealt with the various phobias people have, with each episode featuring Englund’s Dr. Andover […]

Review: THE PARANORMAL DIARIES: CLOPHILL

Found footage is in full effect, with entries like WILLOW CREEK, DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and the upcoming (and VERY good) CREEP all have either hit or getting ready to hit your screens just within this year. What’s made 2014 so interesting, is how most of the found footage-ish films have all done things […]

If you’re a fan of practical and gory, balls to the wall horror, then be ready. The upcoming Tribeca Films’ release (hitting iTunes and VOD September 30th), THE DEMON’S ROOK, is a horror film that lovers of Italian horror, practical effects and just good ol’ splatter-filled carnage can sink their teeth into.

Review: DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN

Possessed pregnancies seems to be a subgenre that is alive and booming, with film likes DEVIL’S DUE, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and now Brian Netto’s  DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN. I don’t know if someone in independent horror land just wants to steer potential baby-makers away from having a kid with stories of the devil executing his […]

Exploitation Alley: BLOODSUCKA JONES!!

This week’s Exploitation Alley movie was suggested to me by Jerry. I usually tend to choose older films, or films considered exploitation or genre classics, but I decided to go for it andcheck out something fresh, new, and (hopefully) exciting. Immediately after hearing about the film from Jerry, and watching the trailer, I decided that I […]

Review: GRAVE HALLOWEEN

Having a really solid foundation to a film gives a filmmaker a step in the right direction. Where it goes from there is up to a good combination of everything from a solid script, and eye for telling a visually striking film and performances that sell the story and the foundation. While Steven R. Monroe(director […]

The Vault: Scary Movie (1991)

A decade back when we first started Icons Of Fright, one of my personal favorite columns here was from my dear friend Jason Alvino called “The Vault Of The Forgotten & Obscure!” While tons of titles that we had vague memories of as kids were still trickling into the ever-growing DVD market at the time, […]
