• LET’S TALK ABOUT AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW

    We’re over halfway through the fourth season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY and Ryan Murphy has once again served us a peculiar plate of camp, horror, and recycled storytelling.  Of all the horror television shows out there, the only one I follow religiously is AHS.  Perhaps it’s my small obsession with Frances Conroy or the show’s […]

    Beyond Fright Review: THE MULE

    Good, original crime thrillers can be extremely difficult to come by. For ever GOODFELLAS or FARGO, there are quite a few efforts that end up falling a bit flat, giving viewers a definite “been there, done that” feeling. When original crime films do come, it’s typically out of nowhere and a lasting effort that ends […]

DARYL DIXON AND THE IMPORTANCE OF GAY REPRESENTATION IN HORROR

Over the course of THE WALKING DEAD‘s wildly successful four seasons, no other character has earned as much adoration or fan praise than Daryl Dixon. (Unless of course you count the “Corl” meme.)  Whether it’s the popular “If Daryl Dies, We Riot” mentality or the sold out $325 tickets for the “Norman Reedus VIP Experience” […]

Review: SEPTIC MAN

In the words of the great poets of WORKAHOLICS…”Let’s get weird!”. If there is a film that absolutely lives by that motto, then it would definitely be the Tony Burgess (PONTYPOOL)-written, Jesse Thomas Cook (MONSTER BRAWL)-directed SEPTIC MAN.  It’s a film that takes the “Shit just got surreal” tagline it had during last year’s festival […]

While typical films use trailers and images to get people excited to watch the movie, these guys decided to go a different route and give viewers a finger puppet reenactment of a scene […]

Icons Of Fright’s WRITING MIXTAPE, Part Three: Natty

Everything I do tends to revolve around music. It’s mandatory that I reserve about 45 minutes of my day to unwind with some good tunes and headphones. I can’t even begin my day right if I don’t enjoy music with my morning coffee, so it only makes sense that I HAVE to listen to music while […]

Awkward Conversations In THE WALKING DEAD: Season Four Deleted Scene

It’s interesting to see what scenes from your favorite shows were left on the cutting room floor. Sometimes a scene is pulled for pacing reasons, and well…sometimes it’s just a weird scene. This deleted scene from THE WALKING DEAD‘s upcoming season four Bluray/DVD falls somewhere in the latter, with talks of “stumping” and just plain […]

Icons of Fright’s WRITING MIXTAPE, PART TWO: BJ Colangelo

Like Jerry’s installment yesterday, I too tend to write with a playlist blasting in the background.  As a musical theatre performer and a former coffee-shop cover singer, music plays a major part in my life.  My music tastes are all over the board, but my writing playlists tend not to really click with what most […]
