    The Icons of Fright Team Remembers Wes Craven

    We all have heroes, and this week, one of the true horror heroes and legends, Wes Craven, passed away after fighting brain cancer. To say that Craven’s passing has affected the horror community would be an understatement, a statement that just doesn’t articulate how much of an absent we’ll have from here on out. The […]

    Bluray Review: BACKCOUNTRY & THE HARVEST

    While Scream Factory has earned the reputation for putting out fan-favorites and long lost genre films, one of the many things that impresses me on a regular basis, is how good the films they acquire or release via their partnership with IFC Midnight are. Films like THE BABADOOK, EXTRATERRESTRIAL, and now two of the most […]

    Bluray Review: THE SENDER (1982)

    Giving fans one hell of a telepathic thriller, Roger Christian (BANDIDO)’s 1982 film THE SENDER has finally made its way to Bluray, and it’s one entertaining ride that really holds up incredibly well. Following Gail Farmer (Kathryn Harrold, RAW DEAL, THE HUNTER), a woman who works at a mental hospital and her interest in a […]

    Satan, Gore and METAL Fill up New Trailer For Horror/Comedy DEATHGASM!!

    Earlier this year, during SXSW, we were able to catch Jason Lei Howden’s heavy metal splatterfest DEATHGASM (review). It was, to put it lightly, one of the most impressive horror/comedies of all time and will without a doubt, go down as one of the genre’s lasting gems. The official trailer for the film has now dropped […]

Review: ALLELUIA! THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL

Being a horror fan is usually the easiest way to earn a raised eyebrow from “normal” society, but being a jazz-squaring, belt singing, musical theatre fan in the horror community will almost always send you off to the isolated Island of Misfit Fandom. Luckily, for the proud and passionate citizens of this island, Darren Lynn […]

Icons of Fright Chats With SINISTER 2 Star James Ransone!!

One of the many unexpected surprises from Scott Derrickson’s SINISTER was the supporting character of “Deputy So and So”, a young police officer who right up until the end, did his best to help Ethan Hawke’s character solve the mystery behind the evil that was Baghuul. The character of the deputy was easily one of […]

Review: IN THE DARK

Like zombie films, found footage silliness and every other type of horror films that suddenly become so very over-saturated in today’s market, the possession subgenre is another kind of genre that rarely does anything outside the box. We’ve all seen the same thing, skeptical priests, exorcisms throwing people in the air, an occasional spiderwalk…it’s safe […]

Fright Exclusive Interview With 12-year Old PARANORMAL SCREAMS author, Madelyn Schaer!!

There’s a level of youthful imagination that tends to fade away with time, especially in the sometimes jaded fields of writing, filmmaking or just following your dreams in general. It’s easy for young people to get told that they can’t or won’t be able to follow their dreams, and to be honest, that’s the worst […]

Review: TALES OF HALLOWEEN

The anthology genre is not a new concept in horror as many fans my age grew up on classics such as CREEPSHOW and TALES FROM THE CRYPT. As I got older, its popularity leveled down a bit until a mini resurgence in recent years. On television we have AMERICAN HORROR STORY where every year brings […]

Review: EVERLASTING

It’s refreshing when you come across an independent film that you can just tell from the beginning that there’s a personal story to be told within the film. It’s easy to feel for those types of films and the characters which live inside of that story. A cautionary tale of two young lovers, one of which […]
