Icons Pirate Commentary: THE WARRIORS with Sean Clark & Rob G!

Warriors-Commentary

It’s been a while since we here at Icons Of Fright have been able to host a new “pirate commentary.” And so we were excited when the prospect of this special WARRIORS one came together. I’ve always been a fan of the film; I have vague memories of seeing it during frequent re-runs on cable. A […]

Beyond Fright Double Review: IFC’s WOLF/HELLION

WOLFHELLION

I’ve always been drawn to films that have lead characters that don’t fall into a black or white area, ones that are in a very grey place. Characters like those ones tend to stay with you after watching the films they inhabit, and are able to make you stop and think for a while, making […]

Beyond Fright Review: COLD IN JULY

Cold-In-July

Let’s just start this with an obvious statement: Jim Mickle is one of the best directors working today. Very few filmmakers have a track record as solid as Mickles, a track record of improving more and more with every single release. His 2006 debut, MULBERRY STREET showed horror fans a brand new take on a […]

Beyond Fright: Motionless In White’s “Creatures” Music Video

MIW

My first exposure to Motionless in White was when they came to my hometown around five years ago and whichever shitty band I was in at the time opened up the show. I immediately latched onto the band and their style of mixing the heavier elements of what many call “metalcore” with a more gothic-like […]

Beyond Fright: Finch’s “Worms Of The Earth” Video

Finch

While 2003’s UNDERWORLD and the franchise that came out of that film didn’t quite impress everyone, one thing is quite certain: the series has always given fans killer soundtracks. Most of the tracks included on the various UNDERWORLD film soundtracks went for some nifty remix-like approaches, but every once in a while there would be […]

Beyond Fright: THE HUNTINGTONS’ “Let’s Go To Haddonfield”!!

H1

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 […]

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

MixTape

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, […]

Beyond Fright Review: SABOTAGE

sabotage_ver6_xlg

A film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger comes with a decently hefty amount of expectations, due to his filmography being completely full of films that helped establish his role as the guy who has blown more buildings up, delivered more one liners, and muscled his way through more bad guys than any other badass working today. When an actor […]
