    Exploitation Alley: THE HOUSE OF EXORCISM (1974)!!!

    If 1970′s possession films aren’t your thing, they probably should be. Most of the time they can be downright creepy, often the right amount of cheese, and there’s always a chance that you might get surprised with random boobs for no reason at all. Actually, I’m pretty sure that I just explained the film I […]

    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 […]

Review: THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING (2014)

Among horror fans, there is a deep attraction to films involving demonic possessions. Whether it is caused by fascination, or because they happen to scare the hell out of the bravest souls (especially Jerry), there is usually a huge fan base for a film that shows someone losing their souls to the dark side. There […]

Icons of Fright’s Writing Mixtape, Part Four: Josh Soriano

I rarely get alone time in my current living situation, which can sometimes make it difficult to get into the proper head space for writing. As an artist, I’m already heavily critical of what I’m working on, so it’s helpful to be able to release some anxiety though music. Besides inducing a creative break, music […]

Tribeca Films’ THE DEMON’S ROOK, A Love Letter To Italian Horror; Trailer Gory As Hell

Today’s entries into the zombie subgenre typically fall into the repetitive slow-walking/fast-running categories, very rarely offering much else. Back in the day, films like Fulci’s ZOMBI, THE GATES OF HELL and/or Bava’s DEMONS stood out because they offered something fresh and exciting, something that today’s undead efforts often lack. Enter James Sizemore’s film THE DEMON’S ROOK, […]
