    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 […]

    Fright Exclusive Interview With HEAVENLY SWORD Screenwriter Todd Farmer!!

    Todd Farmer has definitely made a name for himself in genre films. Having written the “Jason Voorhees in space” FRIDAY THE 13TH sequel, JASON X, as well as co-writing films like MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, DRIVE ANGRY and the now lost HALLOWEEN 3D with frequent collaborator Patrick Lussier, Farmer is a staple in the horror community, […]

    Review: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW (2014)

    Theatrical horror is notoriously disappointing, so the expectations I had for AS ABOVE, SO BELOW were almost nonexistent.  The lure of cave exploration (a la THE DESCENT) is 100% the only reason I went to see the film, and I’m glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed myself.  I […]

    DVD Review: DEADBEAT: Season One

    Good TV shows are hard to come by. Well, it used to be that way, but these days we’re given such great Television as Hannibal, True Detective, Penny Dreadful and so on, that it seems that we’re living in a great time for TV. With such dramatic shows kicking ass nonstop, the amount of genuinely […]

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 […]

Get Ready To Devour This New Trailer For..well..DEVOURED!!

I’m a fan of horror films dealing with desperate people and the things they do to make themselves and their loved one survive. Sure, there are more misses than hits, but that plot-angle always fascinates me, so naturally I’m somewhat stoked on DEVOURED. Dealing with a young mother who takes a job working at an […]

Icons of Fright’s WRITING MIXTAPE, PART ONE: Jerry Smith

With Beyond Fright, we like to focus on things somewhat on the fringe of horror. Whether it be great music or just  films that might be on the tip of something based in genres that might not be considered “horror” by most standards, but still have that great genre vibe. While brainstorming ideas for articles, […]

Review: THE MIDNIGHT GAME

Five friends decide to play a game that ultimately unleashes an evil that begins to make their worst fears come true. While that premise has been done quite a few times, and isn’t one that’s all that original, A.D. Calvo’s THE MIDNIGHT GAME succeeds at doing what any film playing in those waters should do: giving viewers […]
