    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 […]

    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: SEPTIC MAN

In the words of the great poets of WORKAHOLICS…”Let’s get weird!”. If there is a film that absolutely lives by that motto, then it would definitely be the Tony Burgess (PONTYPOOL)-written, Jesse Thomas Cook (MONSTER BRAWL)-directed SEPTIC MAN.  It’s a film that takes the “Shit just got surreal” tagline it had during last year’s festival […]

VARSITY BLOOD Gives Viewers A Taste Of What’s In Store With Finger Puppet Reenactment

You’ve got to hand it to the team behind the high school slasher VARSITY BLOOD (heading to DVD August 19th via Image Entertainment). While typical films use trailers and images to get people excited to watch the movie, these guys decided to go a different route and give viewers a finger puppet reenactment of a scene […]

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, […]
