Beyond Fright Review: THE MULE

The_Mule_SD3_150513_0148-(1

Good, original crime thrillers can be extremely difficult to come by. For ever GOODFELLAS or FARGO, there are quite a few efforts that end up falling a bit flat, giving viewers a definite “been there, done that” feeling. When original crime films do come, it’s typically out of nowhere and a lasting effort that ends […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Marilyn Manson Teases “The Pale Emperor” Album With “Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge” Track

mm2

It seems that in between filming a role in the final season of Sons of Anarchy, playing songs with Johnny Depp, and various other things, Marilyn Manson has recorded a brand new album. Titled “The Pale Emperor,” Manson gave fans a glimpse of what’s in store with the album, by releasing the brand new “Third […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Every Time I Die’s “Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space” & “Revival Mode” Videos

ETID

By far one of my favorite bands of all time, Buffalo, NY’s Every Time I Die has always been a juggernaut of craziness. A band that can be heavy as possible, but can throw out some soulful melodies at the drop of a dime, the band has always had a knack for not only creating […]

Review: DRIVE HARD

DRIVE HARD

It’s pretty apparent when a film takes itself a bit too seriously. On the flipside to that, it’s also apparent when you know that the actors involved in a film are well aware of it being a tad bit silly, and in turn, give performances that are not only in on the joke, but are […]

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 […]
