gr1

Here at Icons, we’re massive fans of BLUE RUIN. Jeremy Saulnier’s independent tale of one man’s revenge against his family’s killer is so nuanced and assured, grim yet humorous, that it was one of our favorite films of that year.

Beyond Fright Review: VENDETTA

VENDETTA_POSTER-Final_Hi-Res-2

When the name Dead Cain pops into your head, I doubt the word “badass” hitches a ride with it. For me, hearing his name typically means old memories of his role as Superman in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, or even his chilling performance as Scott Peterson in the made for TV film, The […]

OLIVER_STONED_ITUNES_2

The man child is a concept that feels pretty heavy in male driven comedies, more in particular to those starring Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler.

Beyond Fright Review: COMET

Comet

We’ve all been there, crossing paths with someone who is able to completely take you back and keep you enthralled just at the idea of spending more time talking to them.

School talent shows can be filled with tension and fear, as the performers are anxious to perform in front of their fellow classmates and parents. Things can get pretty frightening for all involved, as the audience isn’t quite sure what they will see next; a future star or someone that should look up the word […]

Drugs and alcohol can do a lot to people. I’ve seen first  hand how much destruction that falling into overuse of whatever vices one has can do to a life, and it can get quite ugly. When it comes to the subject of addiction in film though, it’s always a mixed bag, with either actors […]
