    IKEA Singapore Does Halloween Right With This Spoof Of ‘THE SHINING!’

    Despite sharing only a small handful of similarities to it’s source book by Stephen King, it’s funny how the imagery from Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING has become so indelible in the minds of both horror fans and the general public at large. Hell, the world over! I love spoofs of THE SHINING. Remember that one […]

    INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER III Teaser Trailer Shows New Family; Back To The Beginning Approach

    James Wan’s INSIDIOUS scared the hell out of audiences and helped make Blumhouse a name brand, with a buildup of scares that led to one creepy villain. INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER II took somewhat of a different approach, providing a lot of explanations and pushed the budding series into a different direction. With Leigh Whannell (Writer of […]

    Bluray Review: THE SQUAD

    Scream Factory’s lineup of original releases have been somewhat of a hit or miss thing for viewers. Some, like the French Lovecraft-ian DEAD SHADOWS were met with moderately positive praise and some of the them, such as THE MONKEY’S PAW was not. Personally, I’m a big supporter of the gang at Scream Factory releasing these […]

Icons Pirate Commentary: THE WARRIORS with Sean Clark & Rob G!

It’s been a while since we here at Icons Of Fright have been able to host a new “pirate commentary.” And so we were excited when the prospect of this special WARRIORS one came together. I’ve always been a fan of the film; I have vague memories of seeing it during frequent re-runs on cable. A […]

Review: EVILS OF THE NIGHT (1985)

Oh, lost cult films from the ’80s. Little gems like these are forgotten about and life goes on for the horror fan, but then Gorgon Video does something crazy and releases films like EVILS OF THE NIGHT, and well..I’m not complaining. A film so odd, so  scatterbrained and borderline porno that you find yourself wondering […]

Review: WEREWOLF RISING

Mention the word “werewolf”, and you automatically gain a certain amount of viewers that will take the time out of their day (or night) to watch a movie with the sometimes scary beast. The werewolf subgenre was at one time a booming one, with films like AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, THE HOWLING, THE WOLFEN […]

Review: WITCHING & BITCHING

Alex de la Iglesia has always had a knack for combining elements that would not typically go together as well as they do for his films. 1995‘s THE DAY OF THE BEAST took the concept of three men TRYING to bring about the Antichrist, and turned it into a hybrid of horror and what was […]

Shot On Video DEATHERMAN Released From Retrosploitation; Looks Likes S.O.V. Fun

The ’90s were full of big budget studio horror entries, like SCREAM, URBAN LEGEND and even some good ones like DEMON KNIGHT (SCREAM fans relax, I’m just messing with ya), but the movies that were always the most fun to check out for me, were the ones friends would make on crappy VHS camcorders that […]

DVD Review: PENNY DREADFUL, Season One

In a time full of excellent Television programming, it would be quite easy to get engulfed in the flames of Hannibal, True Detective and various other top notch shows, and accidentally fail to catch another show completely filled to the brim with excellent writing, acting and some of the most gorgeous set pieces around. Luckily, […]
