    Icons of Fright Interviews JESSABELLE/SAW VI&VII Director Kevin Greutert!

    Before making his way into directing, Kevin Greutert established himself as one hell of an editor, having edited everything from THE STRANGERS and THE COLLECTION, to the first five SAW films, before successfully making the transition into directing. Staying in the franchise until its supposed end (last week’s press conference put an end to “the […]

    Upcoming TALES OF HALLOWEEN Anthology Boasts GREAT Horror Lineup!!; Begins Shooting In November!

    I’m an anthology nut. Sure there are definitely a decent amount of uneven and/or straight up bad ones, but the ones that do it right, REALLY work well for me. I just love the idea of horror filmmakers taking the short form of filmmaking and telling quality stories in a limited amount of time, which […]

    Editor’s note: Friend of Icons of Fright, author Derek Botelho tackled this review of Alexandre Aja’s film adaption of the Joe Hill novel, HORNS for us. Short but to the point, here is Derek’s review: Upon reading Joe Hill’s novel Horns I recall thinking how difficult it would be to adapt into a movie. Like […]

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 […]

Image Entertainment Set To Release THE DEVICE To DVD This December; Impressive Set of Commentary Guests

Jeremy Berg’s THE DEVICE was one of my favorite genre films of this year (review), and it’s the dedication of Berg, co-writer/producer John Portanova, and producer Matt Medisch (known collectively as The October People) that made THE DEVICE, their previous film THE INVOKING and basically everything they have had their hands in really give of […]

Bogliano’s LATE PHASES Gets New Poster; Full Release Info

I find it incredibly interesting that Adriån Garcîa Bogliano’s follow-up to the acclaimed HERE COMES THE DEVIL is a werewolf movie, but if it shows anything, it’s that there’s a large amount of versatility to his work. The creature horror film, LATE PHASES is set to be released by Dark Sky Films on November 21st and the […]

JULIA

Screamfest Review: JULIA

Making its U.S. debut at Screamfest, Matthew A. Brown’s dark thriller, JULIA is a force to be reckoned with. A film so visually and emotional resonant, that it transcends any boundaries or limitations that are typically placed on the type of genre that the film falls under. A rare gem, led by one brave and […]

Review: THE SCRIBBLER

THE SCRIBBLER is one of those films that is both visually stunning and odd, which can actually be a great combination, and mandatory viewing for those souls who find themselves wanting to venture out and watch something different, and exciting. Early in the film, we meet Suki (Katie Cassidy). Suki suffers from multiple personality disorder, […]

Review: SEE NO EVIL 2

I’ll be the first person to say that 2006’s SEE NO EVIL didn’t really warrant a sequel. It has its core fanbase, but for the most part, its place in the $5 Bluray bin says a lot about my feelings for the WWE slasher film, so when AMERICAN MARY directors Jen and Sylvia Soska were […]

Double Feature Adventures: AMERICAN MUSCLE (2014) & MS. 45 (1980)

It’s been a few weeks since the last Double Feature Adventures article, and with good reason. Natty’s been off working as the Mayor of Boca Raton, Florid and well, I’ve been in an underground bunker, preparing for the inevitable apocalypse. Ok, so none of that is accurate, Natty has been hitting up Disneyland and various […]
